About Steve and Irene Pierce

We moved up to the beautiful Coeur D'alene area from Georgia in 1994. Purchasing this 13 acre property in 1997, we divided the land, selling 5 acres to my brother in law who built a beautiful custom designed home. Not wanting to part with the property when him and his wife let us know they were moving to Florida last year, we bought the house and have remodeled it with a vaction rental in mind.

Steve and Irene Pierce purchased this house in 2013

Why Steve and Irene Pierce chose Idaho

Nestled between CDA and Spokane, this property is the perfect central location to the airport and shopping yet distant enough to enjoy the quiet solitude, wildlife and incomparable views of the area.

What makes this house unique

Whether you choose to bask in the peaceful serenity of the mountains, or entertain yourself with a 70' screen theatre room and did we mention leather recliners that seat up to 8? then this place is right for you.

Lots of wood and stairs, with beautiful views.

Many activities for all the ages in our family. The owners were honest and return cash that we had accidentally left behind.

Owner's Response: Disappointed with our first 4 star rating. We keep the house impeccably clean. The furnishings are luxurious and the activities we provide for our guests are well thought. Views are beautiful. Stairs lead down to the game room. Pictures on our website show the beauty of the wood interior.

Beautiful and comfortable large home

  • 5 of 5

Steve and Irene provided us with the perfect place for our family Thanksgiving get together! The home was large enough to accommodate the whole family, with a very well equipped kitchen with room enough so that multiple people could be working together to prepare the meal which made it very enjoyable. There were even more than the "basics" provided in the kitchen which was very much appreciated as we had forgotten some items. The beds were comfortable, with room for the various combinations of family members and all the little touches were very much appreciated.

Having the theatre area with the eight very comfortable lounge chairs made watching the football games a popular activity - and the downstairs with the foosball, ping pong and pool tables kept the teenagers and young adults busy when they weren't out exploring the area. My sisters and I really appreciated having the exercise equipment, what a nice bonus! The different gathering places in the house were perfect for being able to have various groups visit comfortably without people being crowded into small spaces.

The view and the grounds were wonderful - we'd love to return to enjoy the house and the area during the summer time.

Steve and Irene were wonderful hosts and very easy to communicate with through the whole rental process. Thanks to them for helping to make this a memorable holiday for our extended family.

Owner's Response: The house is beautiful in the winter as well as the summer. We love how the trees covered in snow makes the view even more dramatic. It is so nice to know how our guests have enjoyed this little piece of paradise. Thank you!

Fantastic vacation home! Comfortable, plenty of room, and really great views!

  • 5 of 5

Would really like to go back. Just a good location to enjoy Post Falls, Couer d'Alene, and the surrounding area. Enjoyed Silverwood (roller coasters), an alpaca ranch, horseback riding, and shopping and sightseeing in Couer d'Alene. The parks in Post Falls are really great. Enjoyed 2 evenings sitting around the fire pit roasting hot dogs and marshmallows. Really quiet and peaceful. A very good place for kids to grandparents. Excellent service from Steve and Irene.

Our family gathered at Steve and Irene's home in celebration of our son's college graduation. Our stay could not have been better. The location is convenient to Spokane airport, the amenities of Post Falls and Coeur d'Alene, and highway access yet out into the absolutely lovely countryside. The views were fantastic--anytime of day. The home itself was extremely well equipped and spotless. The sleeping areas were very comfortable and spacious. The movie room was great fun along with the game tables, ping pong, exercise equipment...WOW! This is a wonderful, WONDERFUL home run by thoughtful, caring folks. Highly recommend! Thank you!

Lots of space and perfectly appointed

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, both kids and adults alike. The kids (4 and 8) had plenty of room to run outside and space inside all to themselves. The kitchen was very well appointed, although a few more serving dishes would be awesome next time. The beds were comfortable and all the furniture was beautiful and functional. The theater room with recliners was a huge bonus. The location was ideal for us, just 25 minutes from the Spokane Expo, and groceries only 10 minutes away. It was March, so we didn't take full advantage of the deck, but it has a wonderful view. Already looking forward to our stay next year!

Owner's Response: We always really appreciate a review and we're glad you enjoyed the home. We have service for 10 and many serving dishes in the cabinet. Will try to think what else we can have for the convenience of our guests. Please come again during the summer to enjoy the outdoor stamped concrete patio!
