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.

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!

Best place we've rented thus far

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have been happier at this house. The location is perfect, the dock and covered boat slip were amazing features. We watched the sunset every night from the deck while eating dinner. It was perfect! The owners were great with answering all of our questions. We could always get ahold of them right away which was comforting. Will definitely book this house again next year.

Beautiful house and location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed everything about this house including: the dock, beach, decks, cozy seating areas with a beautiful view and comfortable beds. The house was well stocked with everything we needed and a much-appreciated guide to restaurants, night life, and fun. The location is convenient to town, but far enough out to have some space. Our family of four had a wonderful stay.

A great house and location for a family vacation.

  • 4 of 5

We loved being right on the water with a covered dock for the boat. Our family spent lots of time on the lake. The house was wonderful. Enough space for all 10 of us! Very comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed. Loved eating on the deck every night watching the sunset and then gathering around the table gas fire. Lots of great memories to take home.

Beautiful and serene!

  • 5 of 5

The lake view from the house is spectacular! The house is warm, cozy, clean and roomy for the 8 of us. Centrally located and close to town and marinas. So the truth is, the steps, while there are 65, were easy to master for all of us and many of us are over 55 in age. Our legs are in the best shape! The owners are very kind and responsive. Our trip and stay at Neachen Bay was absolutely wonderful. Thank you, S.L.

We couldn't have been happier. Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

I looked at all the homes on the lake, looking for best location, quality of property and price and chose this one. Neachum bay is the nearest bay to the main part of lake and has easy access over to town for dinner or down town. It was windy much of the time on the main body of water and so we just skied and surfed in the bay right in front of our house which was great and the water stayed calm. It is a big enough bay too to do all you want and maintain quality water and its fun to have any guests on beach, dock or patio be able to watch their friends and family on the water and be part of it.

As for the house, it is adorable. They have done a real great job designing it and my daughters kept saying, "This is really like a "Lake House" that I have always wanted to stay in"

I enjoyed the stairs because they got my legs ready to ski, but I planned accordingly as there are 66 steps I counted up to the house and so make sure you can handle that if grandma comes with you.

Buddy, the owner, checked in multiple times with us to see how things were and offered to come out and do anything we needed but we needed nothing. It was really nice to know that if we would have had a need, they were conscientous and eager to make sure their guest had a good time. My son left his ring in the bedroom and the maid service found it and Buddy called us to let us know which was great.

I recommend this house and would rent this home again. Thanks Again!!
