About Property Manager/Owner
Ted and I love nature and I, Bonnie love the water in all forms having grown up on the ocean. We have lived here now only two wonderful years having moved from Los Angeles. We offer diverse growth oriented workshops that involve couple's intimacy, men's groups, women's groups, communication, meditation and Bonnie sacred movement and health. Ted is an avid soccer coach and fan. We love to great food and wines, music, dancing, hiking, traveling into the wilderness, and being with our friends and family who live all over the country. Our lives and work have been active at a global level and we have scaled back to enjoy more of our inner life.
Property Manager/Owner purchased this Studio in 2011
Why Property Manager/Owner chose Harrison
Our LakeStar home was designed and built by us. We spent many years planning just where the sunlight would shine through in each window and how to make rooms that our guests would have privacy and enjoy the majestic beauty of the lake just as we do. Our home is also just as comfortable in the wintertime with radiant heated floors and a fireplace that you can enjoy next to the hot tub.We are so blessed to live in this magical spot and hope to share the splendor of nature here with you!

Peaceful and luxurious
We had a lovely time! The accommodations was better then we expected and the views are right out of a magazine.
The house, the views, the quiet setting and sheer beauty of this location made for one of our best vacations ever. Ted and Bonnie, the owners of the home, were most accommodating. Once they helped us settle in, they were available to talk to if we had questions, but otherwise left us alone. We liked that!
We had the entire downstairs area to ourselves. We had a separate entrance, so we could come and go without disturbing anyone. There are two private decks available, a barbecue grill, sauna, hot tub, tv room, laundry, beautifully decorated rooms, and windows everywhere for great views from wherever you are. All this for less than you'd pay for a mid priced hotel room.
If you're looking to just unwind in the perfect setting, this is the place to go. We love this place!
Best leisurely, relaxing trip we’ve had in years!
This is great place if you’re looking for a quiet place away from the hustle-bustle. We spent hours on the deck just watching the lake, trees, birds, etc. and listening to the quiet. Not a lot of options close-by for eating out, but there was a nice kitchenette (microwave, small frig and coffee maker) for snacks and leftovers. The only other thing I might have enjoyed would be a king size bed rather than a queen (since that’s what we’re used to) but besides that, everything was perfect.
The Lake Star sits in beautiful Gotham Bay. Quiet and secluded, with fabulous views of the lake from a private deck and even the bathroom! We enjoyed many hours by the outdoor fireplace (also enjoyed from the indoor living room), having coffee and enjoying the sounds of nature. We also loved the hot tub! The room was elegant and tasteful, with a kitchenette and grill available for our use. The property was clean and it's clear the owners take pride in their home. They were available to help us find the property (long dirt road driveway) and show us around. Ted also gave us some recommendations for local activities and restaurants!
The property is about a 20 minute drive from the interstate, and Ted gave us a local shortcut to save some time. It's a beautiful drive. And downtown Coeur d'Alene is right of the interstate, only about half an hour from the property.
Would highly recommend the Wolf Creek Lodge for a killer steak. We LOVED Angelo's Italian restaurant in Coeur d'Alene. They use all organic ingredients, it is classy, authentic, and DELICIOUS! Rustic has yummy paninis for a good lunch on the town while your'e exploring all the cute local shops. We had pizza and The Fire...some of the best artisan pizza we've had! We spent an afternoon on Mineral Ridge, a beautiful 3.3 mile loop hike with spectacular views of the Lake, perfect for a couple or even the whole family.
If you're looking for a bit of peace and quiet, while enjoying the beauty of the Lake and the fun downtown, we would definitely recommend the Lake Star and their wonderful hosts!
Beautiful place...lovely hosts!
We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. The house is absolutely beautiful and the space that we rented felt very private. The access to the hot tub was one of our favorite things about this property apart from the incredible views out every window. It was peaceful and just what we needed for a weekend away to revive and connect. Thank you Ted and Bonnie for graciously allowing us to enjoy your home! We are already thinking about when we can have our next visit!
The property was clean and quiet. The location was beautiful.
The owners are very kind and polite. When we first arived the weather was very snowy, the owner made sure we were safe on the drive and accomodated us with a nice parking place. We were given a thorough and comprehensive tour of our space. We were grateful for the space we were given and yet had easy access to the owners if we needed anything. That said, we did not find a need for anything, as the space was well stocked and furnished. My wife and I enjoyed the freedom of the space and had a great weekend.
30 minutes to restaurants, shopping in Coeur d'Alene.
Skiing: also Lookout Pass near Silver Mountain, Mt. Spokane near Spokane, and Schweitzer in Sandpoint.
