Amazing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This home was better in person than we imagined. Awesome quiet neighborhood in perfect location to Lake Coeur d'Aelene public beach, Tubbs Hill with walking trails, rock jumping, &

beaches, 15 minute walk to downtown CDA. Owners were very responsive, accommodating, and available. Home is very comfortable, and slept our family of 5 with room to spare. We have vacationed in CDA for about 15 years as a family, and this was hands down the best experience we've had there, thanks in large part to the hosts and the wonderful Lake Jewel. You will not want to leave.

Thank you!!!

We couldn't have been happier with our stay in your clean and very comfortable home. Perfect for our family of six. Really appreciated all the amenities and close proximity to the beach and downtown. We are hoping to make this an annual vacation spot!

Beautiful home/Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The Lake Jewel House was the perfect fit for our larger group of 4 adults and 4 children. The house was spacious, very clean, well supplied and nicely decorated. The upstairs bedrooms were a nice size, master bedroom was huge and we found the loft absolutely perfect for the kids to sleep in. The use of the 2 car garage was a huge bonus as well. We also took advantage of the back yard fire pit and neat barbecue. The house is located in a really nice quiet neighbourhood only a short walk to downtown CDA and only a 2 minute walk to a small uncrowded public beach. We are looking forward to returning to this beautiful place in Idaho and will absolutely stay at the Lake Jewel House again. I highly recommend it to anyone vacationing in Coeur D'Alene.

Great location for a fun vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (6 adults and 2 children) really enjoyed our stay at the Lake Jewel House. The quiet location was really nice and just a block and a half from the nearest beach! It was close enough to walk downtown to do some shopping and watch the fireworks from the city park. The beds, kitchen and decor were very nice and spacious and it was very clean upon arrival. We were able to bike the Hiawatha trail, biplane and rented a kayak and paddle board to enjoy at the beach. We really love the Coeur d'Alene area and would recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting the area.

Peaceful Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This is the best vacation home we've ever rented. It is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood near the marina and a few blocks from the center of town with restaurants and shops. We brought our boat and it was great to return from a day in the sun to this shaded retreat. The kitchen is modern and the master suite is large and comfortable. We filled the upstairs with family and they loved the two bedrooms...the sun does come up early in the loft but no one seemed to mind. The owner and his caretaker brother were great to work with and helped us resolve an issue with parking the boat on the city street. We plan to return next year!

We were in town for the CDA half ironman in late June. Total of 5 people. The house was in the perfect location close to everything we needed including access to a public beach about 2 blocks away! The house was in great condition and provided everything we needed. The owners were very easy to work with and communicate with about travel plans, amenities, etc. Would highly recommend this house if you plan on staying in CDA. We will be renting again if we plan to race or vacation in the area!

The city of Coeur d'Alene founded in 1859 is rich in history. It is a 12-month / year recreational wonderland. Ski resorts in two states. The crown jewel is Lake Coeur d'Alene. It is calm and offers many activities on your own or rental of equipment available. Also, Tubbs Hill is a scenic place to hike, go to the beach or just sight see.

There is a rich cultural experience available. Many free weekly music concerts in a variety of parks. Also live theater in a few locations. Many businesses around town offer live music. There are 1/2 dozen local breweries. There are a few wineries in town. Also a dozen wineries in the greater Spokane area.

Spokane airport is only 45 minutes down the Interstate 90.

Skiing at five (5) different ski resorts within one hour.

Within one (1) hour there are twenty-five (25) golf courses. Most of them public with reasonable rates.

Outdoor paradise for all ages! Bicycling, walking, hiking and all the Lake activities abound. Cd'A is a fairly flat town and safe to get around by other than car.

One can be in downtown Spokane Washington in 45 minutes. The artist community of Sandpoint Idaho on Lake Pend d'Oreille is also just 45 minutes north. Missoula Montana is 3 hours East on I-90.

Many parks in and around Cd'A. Many special events like the monthly Art Walk exist.

The weather is mild yet seasonal. No particular extremes in temperature year round.



The city of Coeur d'Alene has grown significantly in recent years, in part because of a substantial increase in tourism, encouraged by several resorts in the area. Barbara Walters called the city "a little slice of Heaven" and included it in her list of most fascinating places to visit. On November 28, 2007, Good Morning America broadcast the city's Christmas lighting ceremony because its display is among the largest in the United States. Coeur d'Alene is a resort town, with the Coeur d'Alene Resort taking up a prominent portion of the city's downtown. It is also located near two major ski resorts, with Silver Mountain Resort to the east in Kellogg, and Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort to the north in Sandpoint.

The city is named after the Coeur d'Alene People, a tribe of Native Americans who lived along the rivers and lakes of the region and were first encountered by French fur traders in the late 18th and early 19th century. The name Cœur d'Alène translated into English means Heart of an Awl, a reflection of the perception of the tribe's traders as very tough businessmen.


Lake Coeur d'Alene, in July

French fur traders allegedly named the local Indian tribe the Coeur d'Alene out of respect for their tough trading practices.[7] Translated from French Cœur d'Alène or Alêne literally means "heart of the awl" which might mean "sharp-hearted" or "shrewd".

The area was extensively explored by David Thompson of the North West Company starting in 1807. The Oregon boundary dispute (or Oregon question) arose as a result of competing British and American claims to the Pacific Northwest of North America in the first half of the 19th century.

Sunset in Coeur d'Alene

The Oregon Treaty ended disputed joint occupation of the area when Britain ceded all rights to land south of the 49th parallel in 1846. When General William T. Sherman ordered a fort constructed on the lake in the 1870s, he gave it the name Fort Coeur d'Alene; hence the name of the city that grew around it. The name of the fort was later changed to Fort Sherman to honor the general.[8] North Idaho College, a community college, now occupies the site.

In the 1890s, the Coeur d'Alene Mining District experienced two significant miners' uprisings.[9] In 1892, the union's discovery of a labor spy in their midst, in the person of sometime cowboy and Pinkerton agent Charlie Siringo, resulted in a shooting war between miners and the company. Years later Harry Orchard, who owned a share of the Hercules Mine in the nearby mountains before it began producing, and who later confessed to dynamiting a $250,000 mill belonging to the Bunker Hill Mining Company near Wardner during another miners' uprising in 1899, would also confess to a secret, brutal and little understood role in the Colorado Labor Wars before returning to Idaho to assassinate former Idaho Governor Frank Steunenberg.[10]

Coeur d'Alene is located at 47°41′34″N 116°46′48″W (47.692845, −116.779910),[11] at an elevation of 2,180 ft (660 m) above sea level.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 16.08 square miles (41.65 km2), of which, 15.57 square miles (40.33 km2) is land and 0.51 square miles (1.32 km2) is water.[1]

Coeur d'Alene sits on the western edge of the Coeur d'Alene National Forest. The city is surrounded by forest, which contains several lakes and campgrounds.

It is located 30 miles (48 km) east from Spokane, Washington, and 311 miles (501 km) east from Seattle.
