Offering the most sought after location by locals and visitors alike, Bennett Bay Beach House has it all. You’ll enjoy the best views of Lake Coeur d’Alene coupled with a 5 minute proximity to downtown restaurants, shopping, beaches and parks.
This home will spoil you with your own private beach and boat dock to enjoy the crystal clear waters. Swimming, boating, kayaking and fishing—it’s all right at your doorstep! Inside you and your guests will discover ample space and amenities.
The main floor offers a huge gourmet kitchen with a dining table that seats 12, plus a breakfast table in the kitchen for additional seating. The adjacent large living room has plenty of space for the whole family to gather around the fireplace. Fresh air is only a step away with several doors that open to the wraparound deck. When it’s time to rest and recharge, head to the main floor bedroom to enjoy 1 king bed and a nearby bathroom.
On the lower floor you’ll find the expansive master bedroom. It boasts 1 king bed, a private bathroom—including a shower and spa tub that offers breathtaking views of the lake—and direct access to the lower deck. This floor also holds 2 additional bedrooms with 3 queen beds and a bathroom in the hall between them. Laundry is available on this floor, plus a full bar and TV room with a nice gas fireplace.
Just steps outside the lower floor you’ll see an outdoor staircase that takes you up to a private suite with 2 bedrooms, including 1 king bed and 2 singles. This retreat also offers a private bath with a steam shower and cedar-lined sauna.
During all four seasons, you’ll discover endless options to relax or play! In the summer and fall, enjoy a grassy play area on the water, sloping gently to the clean, sandy beach and boat dock. There is a great protected area for swimming and plenty of room to lounge on chairs as you enjoy the view or watch the kids play. The large wraparound deck has a BBQ and is another scenic place for all to gather. In December and January this deck is a prime location for bald eagle watching.
When you’re ready to get out and explore, Silverwood Theme Park and Silver Mountain Ski Resort are both only a 30 minute drive, and Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort is 1 hour away.
In the warmer months, athletes and outdoor recreation enthusiasts will love that this home is directly off the North Idaho Centennial Trail (great for biking and jogging), 2 miles from the Coeur d'Alene Resort Golf Course, and within a short drive to the Hiawatha Trail and the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes.
During those colder months there are endless options to take in the beautiful falling snow while you snowshoe, snowmobile, cross country ski or snowboard, tube, or hit one of the local sledding hills.
Enjoy Coeur d’Alene at its most luxurious when you stay in this lakeside gem.

Poorly kept and maintained property
The lake was beautiful, but the property itself was run down. Everything was outdated. No Air Conditioning for God's sake and it was 95 degrees many of the days. No A/C and we spent over $17,000 to stay at for a week. When we asked for air conditioning we were charged extra for portable units. We would not stay there again for a third of the price or recommend it to anybody. The vacation rental management companies was great, nice people, and easy to work with and super responsive. It is the homeowners who haven't kept the place up and who run it on the cheap. Also, there were real estate showings while we were there. Clearly this is a home the owners don't care about and want to get rid of.
Thank you for staying with us during your visit to Coeur d’Alene! Due to our limited warm season here in the Northwest, it’s quite common for homes—vacation rental and otherwise—to not have air conditioning and/or use portable units. We do note on the home’s description that portable AC units are available for rent. We sincerely apologize for the miscommunication that resulted in a real estate showing during your stay. Lakefront properties end up for sale due to a variety of reasons—often simply because over the years the home is no longer being utilized the way it was in the past. Selling these homes is often a very difficult decision for families to make and they do so hoping that another family or families will be able to utilize the home the way it deserves. We can assure you that both Vacation Rental Authority and the owners love this home and love hearing the many happy reviews from guests who have stayed here. We appreciate your feedback and will use it to continue to improve! We hope you will stay with us again soon!
Although the location, lake, size of house, and beach were great; there were some glaring negatives. The building was dated in it's furnishings. The kitchen utensils were quite limited making cooking and serving a challenge. The building was not air conditioned making for hot afternoons and early evenings inside. The hot tub and grill worked great. The beach area was very nice as was boat docking. We did have a great time all in all, but it seemed like it was a lot of rental cost for the general condition of the house.
Thank you for staying with us! We are thrilled to hear that overall you have a great vacation in beautiful Coeur d’Alene! Due to our limited warm season here in the Northwest, it’s quite common for homes—vacation rental and otherwise—to not have air conditioning and/or use portable units. We continually work to improve our homes and our guest’s experiences, and will take all of your feedback into consideration. Thank you again!
Needs some TLC
The positives are the beach area, location close to town, the kitchen (though bring your own knives)and the views. The negatives are one of the main room fans doesn't work ( I noticed in previous comments that it wasn't working in the Spring either and should have been fixed by July when it was in the 90s), the furniture needs replacing to the point that metal is sticking out and ruined two shirts-we covered chairs with duct tape, wallpaper is peeling, showers moldy, carpet stained badly and just plain needs an update. If the owners want to continue to charge this amount, they need to fix it up. Such a shame cause it could be great.
Thank you for staying with us and providing helpful feedback. We are working to address any and all issues and do have a 24/7 maintenance team on hand for our guests. Our excellent housekeeping staff goes above and beyond to ensure that all of our homes are thoroughly cleaned from top to bottom and will take note of your observations. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed this home’s beautiful beach and fantastic location and hope you’ll come stay with us again!
Not a dream vacation
The House itself is absolutely beautiful, however there are some major draw backs to this house. It is NOT handicap friendly. The layout is horrible with a ton of stairs. Only 4 of the bedrooms are accessible from within the house. The others you have to go outside and up an outside stairwell to get to. The lights on the main floor are lacking, with only the kitchen getting enough light. The light switches them selves are hard to find and located in odd places. One of the fans did not work, in fact many things did not work. The hot tub is not the in ground one that is pictured. Instead it is a smaller above ground one. The masterbed room is very hard to get warm. Most of this our group can and did look over and adapt to. What really made things bad for us was the next door neighbor. There is a 9pm quiet time, we tried and I thought succeeded in meeting that requirement the first night with most people playing card games and talking amongst the group, but still we got a noise complaint. We also got a complaint about too many cars. Now this is a house that sleeps as many as 14 people, you could, if everyone showed up separately have 14 cars, not likely. You can only have 4 cars showing. The problem is There is nothing in the contract that states this. So with 2 complaints we got threatened with a 150 dollar additional fee. I would not recommend this house to anyone.
Thank you for staying with us and providing helpful feedback. We are continuously working to improve our homes and our guest’s experiences. Since your stay, we have updated and expanded the description of the home—including information regarding the stairs, number of vehicles, etc. Pertinent information, such as the allotted vehicles, is also included in the emails our guests receive after booking the property. We are updating photos to include the new hot tub and kitchen appliances. We apologize for the frustration re: noise complaints. Unfortunately, sound can travel better than we may think and we do have to be respectful to the neighbors who are also enjoying the beautiful lake views from their homes. Again, your feedback is appreciated and we do hope to be able to serve you again!
Amazing home! I loved the nice beach, and big hot tub! Also loved staying close to the downtown area, and was still able to experience the breathtaking lake view from the back porch of this amazing house! I would definitely stay here again!
We love hearing happy reviews like yours—thank you for sharing! These are the same reasons that we love this beautiful lakefront home. We hope to see you again soon!
