Summary: This new home was purchased in 2018!
Over $50k has been invested after the purchase to make this new home our own. We are a few years from our ability to live here full-time so we are inviting like-minded individuals & families to be our guests in this gorgeous and we believe magical environment.
The furnishings are new (or antique!) and all of the beds are new, making this clean home ideal for anyone who is looking for the highest-quality vacation property with the amenities and views in every direction that cannot adequately be described.
The over-sized master suit is on the upper level and the other 3 bedrooms are on the lower level. Every bedroom opens to one of two expansive 50 foot decks. Heated flooring under the Angora stone flooring and in each bathroom and kitchen keep your toes delightfully warm. Over-sized and deep garage with plenty of space for very long boats. Free boat launch just feet from this property.
This stunning NEW home offers some of the most beautiful views this area has to offer. Perched on the hillside a walkable 200 yards from the waters of Carlin Bay, it is peacefully located, yet just across the street from the well-known Carlin Bay Resort. The free public boat dock is a few hundred feet from this home along with a wonderful and underutilized public beach and picnic area. The short walk to the Carlin Bay Resort and restaurant will reward you with fantastic meals, a new bar to socialize in, and several very large docks. From the moment you step inside, you will be swept away with the clean and classic decor throughout this beautiful home. There are no shortage of windows in every direction from which to enjoy this hidden location. Only one other home is visible from decks of this home, and only partially so. No photograph can truly capture the grandeur of these views. They are nothing short of stunning.
The drive from Coeur d’Alene, approximately 30 minutes, is mostly along Highway 97, which happens to be one of the most scenic roads in the area. It winds and climbs along the lake and through the forest. Nearby are several popular attractions. Just 20 minutes away, Mineral Ridge Scenic Area offers spectacular views of Lake Coeur d’Alene, serene picnic areas, and fairly easy hiking trails. And within 15 minutes, Beauty Bay Recreation Area offers several easy hikes leading to more gorgeous views and perfect picnic spots. The Carlin Bay Resort has a full restaurant and bar and is a short walk away. The beautiful town of Harrison offers more selection and a variety of restaurants and attractions. Also, Wolf Lodge, one of Coeur d’Alene’s best steak restaurants, is less than 30 minutes from home. Coeur d'Alene's newest zipline is likewise running just down the hill.
This home has four over sized bedrooms with sliding doors opening from each to one of two decks, both with breathtaking views of the lake, mountains, and resident deer bedding at times only feet from the lower deck. The master suite, has a queen bed, amazing views of the lake, TV, and large master bathroom with a walk-in shower, wide luxurious soaking tub, and separate space for laundry. The second bedroom has a queen bed views that rival any other location in this home.
The gourmet kitchen, spacious and versatile, has numerous amenities and heated Angora stone flooring. We offer a large variety of cookware and dishes needed to whip those special meals to share with your guests. Included is a range, microwave, dishwasher, two sinks, coffee maker and kurig, toaster and blender, smore maker, waffle maker, etc.. A chef's dream! Ample seating and a charming environment that is waiting to host shared stories and laughter.
The living room has two comfortable couches and other seating that look onto an automatic Propane for those crisp, chilly evenings! A new 65 inch TV hangs just to the side of the fireplace.
From the living room, a large fully-covered deck awaits where you will gaze upon one of the most beautiful views of the sweeping bay and docks one can imagine. Sunsets and sunrises will take your breath away! We are currently ordering very comfortable outdoor furniture and Adirondack-style chairs, a BBQ and smoker..…the only thing missing is a chilled bottle of your favorite wine and friends with whom to share it.
With us you have options! Carlin Bay absolutely comes alive during the summer months and the newly renovated restaurant and bar are a great place to walk to enjoy the water, food, and beverage of your choice. The town of Harrison is also a short drive and has many more dining and dessert options.
Small DOGS are welcome, albeit on a case-by-case basis, and with a non-refundable pet fee of $150. The carpeting and Angora stone tile flooring were all installed in February 2018 at considerable expense. Inquire with us to discuss pet options.
