Description from owner

The log house sits in the middle of seven and a half acres up the hill from Turner Bay on the east side of Lake Coeur d'Alene. It's the perfect place to get away from the world. You can't see any neighbors. Reading and visiting on the front porch is a great way to start the day. There are plenty of comfy chairs and a two person porch swing. When we decided to rent it out we re-did just about everything. It now has a new stove, refrigerator, microwave, mattresses, refinished floors, and indoor toilet, but we still kept our full featured outhouse for the more adventurous. And we added a fire pit with wood provided.

Hiking, biking, picnicking, and camping are good right out the front door. There is a public dock at Turner Bay that is a two and a half minute drive down the hill. It's a good place to fish and swim and is usually deserted during the week.

Here is a note we just found from our lasts guests: "What a perfect getaway! It was such a nice break, with beautiful morning views of Coeur d'Alene Lake and quiet nights around the fire...Thanks for a peaceful & restful weekend away, we look forward to our next stay at the "home away from home." Best, The Johnson's, Will, Pam, and Lindsay"

About the area

The log house is about in the middle of the East side of Lake Coeur d'Alene in driving time. You're 25 minutes from the village of Harrison at the south end of the lake. Harrison is the best place for access to the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes, and is also great for boat, canoe, kayak, and bike rentals. The log house is also 30 minutes from Coeur d'Alene. It works great for a home base for area activities. The nicest way to see Lake Coeur d'Alene is to take Hwy 97 Scenic Route. That's how you get to and from the log house. Driving down there is a vacation in itself.

“Top 5 stay through 20 yrs and 40 states”

The cabin is well suited for young and middle aged pet owners and pets with 2 wide wooden step access points to a large well equipped front porch. The open floor plan downstairs has plenty of room for the setup and breakdown of your crates and there's lots of space to move around. The couch is quite comfortable, so is the easy chair. A stackstone fireplace separates the living room from the kitchen/ dining area. We cooked a lot and all the utensils, pots, pans, dishes, glasses, cups, bowls, etc. made it easy. Really well equipped, and the walk in pantry is very nicely stocked. The dining table can seat 4, it's a bit snug (as is the bathroom, with the washer/dryer stack) but quite functional. The wooden spiral staircase is just cool, you'll see. The queen bed upstairs is very comfortable, and there's a pair of twins up there also, the two of us didn't use but hey, they're there if you want them. Also unused was the flat screen/DVD and the books (mostly fiction, good to excellent)-the flat screens on a mobile platform, roll it where you want to watch it. Slight selection of DVD s. With so much to do and see in N Idaho you probably won't touch them either. There's windows galore with great views down and upstairs, the property is nicely cleared all around the cabin, and there are several outbuildings in fine shape but currently unused. We sat outside a bit, both by the forest and on the picnic tables but used neither...like I said, TOO MUCH to see and do all around to stand still for too long up here. But, when you get up early, grind some fresh coffee and watch the sun rise...WOW. That's worth lingering over. The bees buzz, turkey and elk calls, the air crisp and clean, and the big trees made this North Idaho cabin stay one of our best vacations. We loved it, the dogs loved it, and you probably will also.

Owner's reply: Hi Ted, thanks for saying all the nice things. Come back anytime. George Goetzman

The Log House at Turner Bay is the perfect escape. A lovely little cabin in the woods with all the amenities. We walked down to the public dock during the day for a quick dip in the lake and roasted marshmallows in the evening. We truly enjoyed ourselves and recommend finding time to enjoy this pristine little cabin.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the kind words Angie.
