About the property

3 Bedroom, 1 And Half Bath Cabin On The Water With An Incredible Lake View

We enjoy sharing our treasured 1940s family cabin on the shores of Priest Lake. Located on the sunny east side of the lake, across from Eight Mile Island, you will enjoy 160 feet of private beach. Swim in the crystal clear water off the the 50 foot dock (that has an average 5 foot depth and sandy bottom) or take a peaceful paddle around the island in the canoe. Then warm up by the fire pit as the sun sets. It's a magical place that you'll want to return to for years to come.

Best Priest Lake vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

What a dream vacation we had at Kelly and Vicki's cabin. They have made every effort to provide comfort and coziness for their guests, from the well equipped kitchen and quality linens, to the large sandy beach with ample sun and shade for all of our lakeside activities. The use of an adorable separate cabin with its own sink and toilet was especially convenient for our needs. What struck us the most about this property though, was the obvious care and love this family have for this very special and unique piece of history on Priest Lake. We can't wait for a return trip in 2018!

Corbin-Merrill Cabin at Priest Lake ID Top of List

  • 5 of 5

Vicki and Kelly, Just a note to say how wonderfully relaxing our family vacation was at your Priest Lake waterfront cabin! Over the past two decades, my family has rented cabins on water in three states: Washington, Idaho and Montana. The Corbin-Merrill "summer cabin" (due to its location and mid-century ambience) has been ranked #1 by my family members! What specifically? May be to much too list: pristine lake water views, beach and dock system; nighttime stargazing; local points of interest such as 8 Mile Island, hiking, huckleberry picking, water channel to Indian Creek Bay etc. The cabin was spotlessly clean! Fully equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, ample DVD's, games, books, firewood and outdoor Weber BBQ grill. Extra guest cabin perfect for our size family. The "Green Room" outdoor sitting/eating area next to the bubbling brook put us back in touch with Mother Nature each day. We'll be booking again!

Cozy Crafstman Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We spent a serene, special week at this authentic Priest Lk. cabin. The care and love is evident in the details and family mementos. Kitchen is well stocked and almost every need has been anticipated. There is a nice sandy beach and great view of several islands towards the south. Lovely wood paneling and very comfy master bedroom. We hope to return in the future and make this wonderful cabin part of our new tradition and add to the memories. Owners were very helpful and gracious and the cabin is located near( about 8 miles) stores and restaurants.

Best kept secret

  • 5 of 5

If you are wanting an authentic Priest Lake vacation this rental is for you. The cabin and bunkhouse are absolutely adorable. Tastefully decorated, the cabin shows how much love this family has for the lake. It has multigenerational history from one of the first families to inhabit Priest Lake. We have rented through VRBO multiple times before and this cabin has to be the best stocked rental we have encountered from kitchen utilities to beach toys. It was a priviledge to rent from the owners and we most certainly hope to again in the summers to come.
