About the owner

In 2009 my husband Jim, and I decided we would begin looking for a lake front cottage for our family to enjoy as well as rent to others for their enjoyment. Soon after finding the perfect spot in North Idaho, on Twin Lakes, we discovered this was a great business to be in. We realized we really get ...

Charming and clean

Almost heaven is exactly what my husband, 2 daughters and I were looking for. It is clean, great location, private, quiet, good combo of shade and sun and has all the necessities for our stay. It's just a 15 min drive to Silverwood and Couer de laine is very close as well. It is a bit dated as far as furnishings but adds to the charm of the house.

This was our second time staying at this property and once again we had an amazing time. The large covered back porch is the perfect place to eat and enjoy the views of the lake. Our children loved playing in the sand and swimming in the water. The property manager, Wendy, was very quick to respond to any questions and easy to work with. Hope to return again next year!

Almost Heaven was the perfect getaway for my family. The setting is simply beautiful: the trees, the beach, the water, the cabin.....................all perfect!! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin is fully equipped with every single item you need, nothing missing! The owners are simply phenomenal! They went out of their way to make certain our trip was a success. Communication was a breeze! We are already counting the days until we can return to this little piece of heaven!!!

My family of 4 just finished our week at almost heaven, we were all sad to see the end come, it is a great little cabin right on a beautiful lake with a nice Sandy beach, we plan on making this a yearly vacation! It was very conveniently located close to silverwood and boulder beach, there was definitely no shortage of things to do even on rainy days Wendy was amazing, very helpful as it was fairly last minute planning! We would absolutely recommend this to friends and family.

Fantastic Vacation Rental

I am not sure where the "almost" in Almost Heaven comes from because as far as we were concerned it was just heaven! We have stayed at Twin Lakes for the past three years and each time we pick a new place searching for the right one we want to come back to. We have finally found it. The property was just as described and the photos were very accurate. It was very clean and the covered deck on the back overlooking the lake was perfect. We could relax and read while watching the kids below play in the sand and there was plenty of room for all of us to enjoy dinner on the deck each night. The large trees provided shade while still allowing for an amazing view. I was surprised by the size of the well stocked kitchen and the main living area. I expected it to be much smaller but was pleasantly surprised by how much space we had with 4 adults and 3 kids. Wendy was a pleasure to work with from the start and always quick to respond if we had a question. This was exactly what we had been looking for and can't wait to come back!

A wonderful "Get-Away" place!

We were very pleased to find "Almost Heaven" just as it was advertised! It's a beautiful location......waterfront, sandy beach, well-appointed beach house with a nice kitchen, outfitted with dishes, cooking utensils, baking dishes, plenty of dishtowels, bath towels, etc. The home was clean, had lovely furniture, comfy beds (thank goodness!) and a large deck with table and chairs, a love seat and carpet that was easy on the feet! The customer service was exemplary, and I would recommend this property to any friend or relative. And, there is a large grocery store only 7 miles away in Rathdrum. We thoroughly enjoyed being there and have already looked into renting next summer for an entire week!

The cabin was very clean and comfortable. We had everything we needed. Our bed was comfortable. The location is perfect: not far from home, easy to get to, right on the water. It was peaceful and beautiful there! We didn't swim but we did stick our toes in the water. We would definitely go back.
