Your 1,000 square foot one bedroom, one bathroom, walkout lower level offers more than just rest and relaxation! Wake up in the morning to a breath-taking view of Coeur D'Alene Lake and grazing wildlife that walks right up to you, with the smell of fresh coffee and a cozy place in which to enjoy it. Equally impressive are the colorful lake sunsets, with distant lights dancing across the water, while you sit on the porch enjoying the cool mountain air with that special someone. You'll get to enjoy all the amenities of home (full kitchen, laundry, storage) in a romantic and pastoral setting. The cable TV, gas fireplace, soft fabric couch, and plush bed help to make your stay more comfortable, and the foldout couch airbed and spare beds are available to sleep up to six people. All three rooms (bedroom, living room, and kitchen/dining room) reveal stunning lake and wild life views. Do you like to shop? Downtown Coeur d'Alene (CDA) is less than ten minutes away. Enjoy exercise? The Centennial Trail, less than 2 minutes away, offers running, walking, biking, jogging, and sightseeing. How about some golf? The Coeur d'Alene Resort offers one of the finest and most unique courses (complete with a floating green!) in the country, and is only five minutes away. Sanders beach, just down the street, offers fun in the sun and in the water. Michael D’s Eatery serves one of the best breakfasts in CDA, while Wolf Lodge to the north serves up mouth-watering rib-eye steaks. Both are minutes away, as is grocery shopping, fast food and quick stops to snack or find extra goodies. Contact us today to secure your peace of serenity!

Tony & Rhonda Hagenstein are on a 30-year honeymoon. We found our paradise (Shakaree is a Vulcan term for paradise, and Tony is an avid Star Trek fan), and realized that we live where people come to vacation! We have converted our lower level to a vacation rental, and are anxious to share our awesome property with friends (old and new) and family. Come join us in the Shakaree experience!
Tony purchased this House in 2014
Why Tony chose Coeur d'Alene
We purchased Shakaree in 2014, after an exhaustive search including over 100 homes. After over 20 years working in Phoenix, it was time to have seasons again when Tony retired. The mountains, trees, wildlife and the lake help make our home the perfect place to live out our lives.
What makes this House unique
The drive to our home is the first step to finding the perfect place. Three miles of Lake Couer d'Alene coastline, followed by a mile drive into the forest. Reaching the end of our road, you find your first spectacular overview of the lake. Our home was custom-built for the original owner, with attention to quality and comfort (we just love the instant hot water!). Your worries evaporate into the mountain air, and you are taken away to a place of quiet serenity.

Nice place Great view. Nice owners
Very nice spacious place. Great view. Tony and Rhonda are super nice and accommodating. Feeding the deer near sunset was great. Happy to go back
Great property and perfect setting.
My sister and I stayed here while we vacationed in the Coeur D'Alene area. It was a perfect place for comfort and peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It was a very short drive but still felt rural. Loved all the amentities and they included anything you could ask for.The host was great and we really enjoyed the resident lab Barkley. Highly recommend it to make your visit to the area perfect. We were fortunate to see young deer cross the property on our last morning which was a fun end to our stay.
Incredible View, Better People
We were able to rent and stay here for an extended period - much longer than an average vacation rental so our impression was built over weeks, not a weekend. It was also our first rental of this type and we were literally on the road as we navigated the rental process. So first, kudos to the site for making it possible to easily search and sift through options!
We were very impressed by our time here. Being new to the process, the owners took the time (via email) to explain the process, answer our questions, and make us feel comfortable about renting and staying in their home. The rental includes the entire, spacious downstairs with breathtaking views of Lake Coeur d'Alene - so be warned, you may want to stay forever. The rental area is very private, quiet, and looks over a landscaped and forested hillside onto the lake and the resort giving you the sensation of rest and seclusion but it is a quick (less than 10 minute) and quiet drive to downtown.
The full kitchen was perfect was for us and we made daily use of the private patio. Everything is clean and the furnishings are quality and stylish - nothing like being in a hotel room! They do include local information about things to see and do in the area as well - and also have tips and "locals only" information they are more than willing to share. And did I mention the view yet? If I didn't you should know it is just amazing.
As nice as the home is - and it is very, very nice - I have to point out the best part of the experience was really the hosts. They are friendly people who really care about their guests and want to ensure you are comfortable and enjoy their home. They truly open a part of their home and lives to their guests and make you feel like a part of the family. You will know from the outset that they care about you. A wonderful weeks-long stay at this property was far better than we can adequately describe. The property and more importantly the owners are five star in every way!
Wonderful place to stay; Lovely area!
We had a wonderful time celebrating our anniversary in this very scenic private house. When we arrived, Tony showed us the beautiful place with an amazing view of the lake. He pointed out the patio and the things that go with it that we could enjoy. He gave us a short tour of the spacious accommodation with a nicely furnished living room, a big full kitchen next to the laundry room, a comfortable cozy bedroom, and a nice clean bathroom. The fruit in the kitchen and the Idaho chocolate bars added a special welcoming touch. The Wi-Fi internet connection in the property is not always on, so be sure to call and ask Tony to turn it on if you need access to the internet. Tony and Rhonda are gracious, hospitable, and accommodating. We recommend this lovely, quiet and secluded getaway (yet close to hiking trails, restaurants, shops, and parks) and all it has to offer for a relaxing and comfortable home away from home.
Beautiful view of the lake and quiet location!!
From the moment we arrived at this vacation rental, we were greeted by the owners and their dog, Barkley. They made us feel very welcome and even left us fresh fruit in the kitchen. Their property sits above Lake Coeur d' Alene and is surrounded by trees, wild animals come through the yard such as deer and elk and it is amazingly quiet. The amenities are very nice including a large selection of movies, full size kitchen and laundry and the bed is extremely comfortable. The owners are very quiet and there were many times we didn't even realize they were home. It is about a 10 minute drive to downtown CDA and there are businesses close by such as a gas station, redbox movie rental, restaurants and a couple pubs to name a few.
If you have any issues with mobility or walking down stairs, this might not be suitable as you have to go down some outdoor steps to get to the rental unit. Besides that, it is worth the trip and I would stay here again. Thank you for the wonderful stay at Shakaree!!
Foothills to the lake- it's all there to enjoy!
This is a perfect getaway home for active couples and doggies. Tony and Rhonda are super nice hosts that
strive to make your stay enjoyable. Home is awesome quiet location while still being remote. I like to cook and everything was available in the kitchen for serving meals. Only suggestion I'd have to to have a tiered price system for renting multiple nites. The longer the stay would reduce the total cost. Thanks much.
Thanks for the nice review and constructive comments! We enjoyed having you guys and your doggies stay in our home, and hope you return in the future. We will offer tiered pricing for the 2016 season, so do take advantage. Thanks for stayingwith us at Shakaree!

Our home is less than one mile from the Ironman route, along Coeur d"Alene Lake Drive. We also feature access to our large storage area, where you can tinker with your bikes or make repairs.
