About Jeff

I am an Idaho native and think you cannot beat North Idaho in the summertime with our great weather, and beautiful lakes and mountains. My husband and I have four children and enjoy boating, jet skiing and fishing in the summer, and the occasional trip to the mountains in the winter.

Jeff purchased this chalet in 2007

Why Jeff chose Northern Idaho

We purchased this property because we love the area and think Lake Coeur d'Alene is one of the greatest lakes for summer recreation in the country! Waterfront is the Place to be :)

What makes this chalet unique

Nestled between Coeur d'Alene and Spokane, this Property is the Perfect Central Location to the Airport and Shopping yet distant enough to enjoy the Quiet Solitude! You can get to many places quickly. If you set out on foot, you can take a short walk to Beaches, Hiking, Mountain Rock Climbing, Kayaking, Stand Up Paddleboarding, Boating. The White House, Oval Office, Mallard's, or GW Hunter's for a great meal.

The Location is Excellent Active Lifestyles. Within a 35-mile radius of Post Falls are 30 golf courses, the North Idaho Centennial Trail - a 56-mile-long paved walking and biking trail - Three State Parks, 55 Lakes and 4 Major Rivers. Lake Coeur d’Alene Scenic Cruises.

The Guest House is only 10 minutes from downtown Coeur d'Alene, 25 minutes from downtown Spokane and 35 minutes from Spokane International Airport. IronMan Triathletes We Welcome You!

Far Superior to a hotel room, cook your own meals in the kitchen or grill down on the lanai.

Perfect little rental

  • 5 of 5

I had to come out to CDA for business and what a perfect spot to stay. The rental was quiet, very clean and cozy. It was close to everything and very close to the freeway. I would recommend this little jewel to anyone. Sincerely, Dia

Great find!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for us. Easy to find. Jeff was very responsive to our questions. Beautiful guest house. Very clean and comfortable. We were visiting the region for a college visit (Gonzaga in Spokane) and also had spent a few days skiing at Schweitzer in Sandpoint.

Hiking nearby. Thanks for letting us stay!

Would stay again if in the area.

Lovely place to stay - Can't wait to come back

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a short get away. We were interested in the Spokane/Coeur D'Alene area as our friends recommended this area. We decided to stay in Post Falls.

I cannot begin to express how happy we were with this stay. The sunrise on the river is unbelievable! The Guest house is very clean and provides every amenity you will need.

The area of Port Falls and Coeur D'Alene is gorgeous and there is no shortage of great places to eat.

The Owners were very friendly and accommodating.

I would highly recommend a stay here and I cant wait to go back.

Best Sleep I've Had in 5 Years

  • 5 of 5

I lucked out when someone recommended this place for my two week stay in Idaho. I went into the business related trip thinking theres nothing to do in Coeur D'Alene - I'll be bored to tears after a day. As it turned out the trip was exactly the mental and physical recharge I so desperately needed. The very accommodating owner and his lovely wife were there when I arrived and promptly helped get me settled before showing me around the property providing me with answers, recommendations and even a warmer jacket to borrow which, being from Florida, hadn't even crossed my mind.

If you're in or around Coeur D'Alene Lake for business, pleasure or a combination of the two it is with highest regards I recommend staying here.
