About the property

3 bedroom home with beach, dock and spectacular views


A cozy 3-bedroom home with 69 feet of lakefront on Lake Coeur d'Alene's quiet Neachen Bay (formerly Squaw Bay). Watch the beautiful Pacific Northwest sunsets from the large deck, the beach or the private dock! The dock has a covered boat slip and the water in Neachen Bay is always clean because of the rock and gravel floor. Water shoes are recommended. The home is easily accessible along the beautiful Lake Coeur d'Alene Scenic Byway, and just 20 minutes from the action in downtown Coeur d'Alene. IMPORTANT NOTE: There are 65 steps leading up to the home so be sure that all guests are suitable for the long climb. There are 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The upstairs has 2 bedrooms (1 loft + 1 enclosed bedroom). One room has a queen size bed and a closet and the other room (loft) has 1 twin bed, 1 full bed and a closet. On the main floor is another bedroom with a king size bed and a walk-in closet. Downstairs offers two living areas with multiple couches - one that converts into a full size bed. The home is completely furnished and has dishes, linens, sheets, towels and everything needed for a great vacation - just bring your own food and drink!

The home is only 16 miles (20 minutes) by car from downtown Coeur d'Alene. You can also get to The Resort by boat in less than 10 minutes.

There is room for parking 2-3 cars on the property.

This property will sleep 8 in beds (based on 2 persons per bed) and is located in a peaceful neighborhood on a beautiful, quiet bay where you can enjoy a wonderful stay by the lake!

About Buddy & Shannon Braach

We have always loved the Lake Coeur d'Alene area and wanted to have a piece of it for years to come. Summer nights spent on the lake are unbeatable and this home allows us to share those moments with our family, friends and our guests. We encourage feedback from all of our guests as we are always looking for ways to enhance the property and the vacation experience.

Buddy & Shannon Braach purchased this house in 2017

Why Buddy & Shannon Braach chose Harrison

We purchased this property because we absolutely love the Pacific Northwest and specifically Lake Coeur d'Alene. Neachen Bay is a beautiful, quiet cove that is close to downtown and all of the amenities that Coeur d'Alene has to offer.

What makes this house unique

The house sits up on the hill which creates privacy along with spectacular views. The private, sandy beach and the dock are great benefits to this home.

Couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Neachen Bay Retreat was amazing. The house is in a great location - close enough to town and multiple marinas but far enough away where you feel like you're truly on a lake vacation. It's also located on a quiet, dead-end street off of the highway which made a big difference for us. The views from the house are incredible - we ate every meal out on the deck enjoying the peaceful lake views. The home itself is very well equipped, nicely decorated and super cozy and the dock was big enough for everyone in our group to enjoy. Lastly, the owners were very responsive and accommodating - we'd love to come back next year.

Gorgeous home on the lake with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here over the 4th of July and we could not have asked for a better home to rent! The house is beautiful, clean and cozy with all the amenities you need (and more). The kitchen is very well equipped; we were able to cook full meals every day and there's a store only a few minutes away for little items we needed which was incredibly convenient.

The deck was plenty big enough for our family to enjoy with a big dining table and a fire pit! We spent most of our time on the beach and the dock - you truly feel like you have your own little slice of paradise while staying at this house.

Lastly, the owners were incredibly accommodating and responsive throughout our stay. They gave us their recommendations for activities, restaurants and boat rentals which all turned out to be amazing. We didn't have to worry about a single thing while we were there but we knew that if we did have a question or a problem, Buddy and Shannon would have been right there to help us.

A family vacation we will never forget! Definitely coming back next year.

Great location for a lake vacation

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from this lovely lake property after spending four nights over the 4th. We found it to be clean and met our needs well. The beach area was perfect for our grand kids to play safely. We especially liked the deck as it had a place not only to eat but also a place to sit around a gas fire pit at night. There were two 'separate' sitting areas in the living room - one for those who wanted to watch TV and one for those who weren't interested! The master king bed was very comfy. The 65 + 2 steps are a workout but manageable and wouldn't deter us from coming again. Parking is limited - we only had two cars but could've squeezed in a third in a pinch. Don't count on neighbors to be accommodating. Dock was fabulous and lake perfect for SUP's. Wishing we'd brought our kayaks but left behind because concerned about security. Now that we've been here, don't think it'd be an issue as place is on a dead end road only homeowners travel.

Last but not least, the homeowner, Buddy, was VERY responsive & pleasant to answer questions we had. We would definitely consider renting again.

What a beautiful location! We had a great weekend. The stairs in front are a little challenging if you have mobility issues, but otherwise this is a great location and made for a good time!

Time to Rave about Harrison's Lakefront Gem!!!

  • 5 of 5

I could not have asked for a more perfect place to stay while on our family trip to Idaho. The house was clean, well equipped (tons of towels, extra bedding, kitchen supplies, etc), roomy, cute decor, had a cozy feel and most importantly an amazing deck with a fireplace and table to enjoy while looking out at the gorgeous lake. The dock was perfect for tanning, lounging and jumping off from too.

The Owners were super responsive and accommodating to requests. The house is not too far from town and to our surprise there was also a local shop that rented kayaks, canoes, boats, jet skis, etc. that delivered to the dock!

First time in Idaho and simply fell in LOVE with this dazzling house, stunning lake, people, food and Idaho hospitality. Perfect vacation. Zero complaints on any fronts, especially the house.

Thank you Buddy & Shannon!
