About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our home on Neachen Bay (formally Squaw Bay) is an ideal place to spend your vacation. It is lakefront with dramatic views of the lake and mountains from the house and two decks. We have a private boat dock that includes waverunner docking and use of paddle boat, kayak and swim ladder. The best thing is our proximity to town and Coeur d’Alene Resort and Golf Course - 10 minutes by boat. Lake Coeur d'Alene is a HUGE lake that extends over 80 miles south of town.

Keep this in mind when you choose a home to rent. Our vacation home is located on Neechen Bay which is on the east side of the lake, across the bay from the new Gosser Ranch Golf and Lake Club, and just minutes from town. This newer, modern home is very tastefully done with lots of amenities. Our home has lots of large windows with exceptional views of the lake.

Come out, bring your boat and take advantage of this rare opportunity to relax, reconnect with your family and rediscover all that Idaho and Lake Coeur d'Alene have to offer.

About Wayne Callender

Hi, my name is Wayne. I live in Boise and bought this property in 2004 for family and friends to come rest, relax and enjoy. The views of Lake Coeur d'Alene are breathtaking. We often get wildlife around the bay, including Bald Eagles, Moose, Geese and Deer. I am sure you will love this bay as much as we do. This area of the lake is protected and calm, yet close to Coeur d'Alene Resort.

Wayne Callender purchased this house in 2004

Why Wayne Callender chose Harrison

Our home is directly on the lake, and it’s a 20-minute car ride to Coeur d Alene, bike and hiking trails. It is a 5-10 minutes boat ride to restaurants, nightly entertainment, local coffee shops, grocery store, and fuel for the boat is directly across the bay. You can take relaxing walks in the morning and evening or dangle your feet in the water as the sun sets. You can enjoy your favorite beverage from the top deck and watch the deer as they nibble from the trees. The National forest is minutes away and boat rentals close by.

What makes this house unique

Our home is designed for FAMILY FUN, it has a kayak, paddle boat, rubber water rafts, life vests, water toys, room to dock your boat and/or wave runners. You can swim off the dock. The water is calm and clear.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful house on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for sharing your wonderful house on the lake (it looks different in winter than in summer, but beautiful just the same). The house has beautiful views from every window – we were able to watch two Bald Eagles flying in the bay. The kitchen was very well equipped. Best of all, the two living areas on two levels allowed kids to watch their own television downstairs while the adults visited upstairs. Skiing at Silver Mountain is only 40 minutes away – the guys and kids even made a trip up to Sweitzer (spelling?) Mountain in Sandpoint. Everyone had a great time.

Thanks again for sharing your fabulous home on beautiful Lake Coeur d'Alene.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at Lake Coeur D'Alene last week. There were several nice features associated with the cabin. One of the most striking things was the view from the top story. Absolutely gorgeous. We also really loved the fully stocked kitchen - spices, condiments, all the stuff you normally find at home - not just the bare minimum that you usually find in a vacation rental. Another nice thing about the home was the fact that the staircase from main floor to second floor was enclosed with a door. This meant that kids could go to bed downstairs and you didn't have to worry about sound carrying from upstairs down to their rooms if the adults wanted to stay up later. We really enjoyed having our boat moored at the dock and were able to park our boat trailer plus our van in the parking spot (bit tight, but manageable). The bay was nice and calm for waterskiing and we were able to boat into downtown faster than we could drive. Would go again.

What a disappointment...

  • 1 of 5

We renting this home for 5 nights as a "last trip", before our son left for college. The home wasn't ready when we arrived, we waited for the housekeepers to prepare the home.

Our first discovery was ants. There were several dozen spotted each day, which is not unheard of in the woods, but when we told the owner, she never responded.

There was no water pressure in the home. If you run the Kitchen sink, the bathroom showers turn off.

Our second night, there was a wind storm, and the water immediately turned to mud! After contacting the rental manager and owner, a plummer was called, and TWO DAYS LATER, he arrived to fix the water. This meant two days of no showering, two days of no washer, two days of no dishwasher!

We ended up waiting for the plummer, we ended up spraying for ants (nothing was ever done for this), and ended up showering at Silverwood Water park!

When I asked the owner to please refund our stay for the days that we had no usuable water, she said:

The storm was out of my control, and I will not be refunding for any of the nights of your stay. I will be refunding your deposit in the next 30 days.

The housekeepers cleaned yesterday and were able to verify that there was no damage, however she is keeping our deposit for 30 days?

This is illegal and wrong.

DO NOT rent from this owner. There are so many other lovely homes on the lake, that are offered by reasonable people who are willing to stand behind your expectations (and they even offer clean running water!)

Owner's Response: We strive to provide a well stocked, comfortable home so families can enjoy their lake vacations together. As can be seen from other reviews, the above account is inconsistent with the experience of all other Families that have stayed at our house. In all fairness, the water issue was caused by a rare but severe storm that passed through the bay stirring up the lake and causing the water to become cloudy. A plumber was called immediately to clean the filtration system but he did not arrive until the next day (the house is equipped with a water cooler with bottled drinking water). We also offered to let the family re-locate but they chose to stay in the house, then asked for a refund at the end of the entire stay. In regards to the security deposit, we return deposits as soon as possible after a stay – by contract we have 30 days to return deposits but almost always complete the process within one to two weeks after the end of the vacation.

Lake Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time during our stay at this cabin on Lake Coeur D'alene. Donna was very helpful and answered all of our questions. The house is well set up and it was very nice to have a/c. Kids loved the water trampoline and jumping off the dock. Thanks Donna very much for sharing your home
