Rustic meets luxury in this expansive lakefront home. With 7 bedrooms, a bunk room, plenty of living space—plus a detached 30’x40’ game room loaded with entertainment for children and adults alike—The Rancher is the perfect fit for groups large and small.

Relax in the sprawling, yet cozy living room by the stone fireplace while enjoying views of gorgeous Hayden Lake through the many windows. This main living area also offers direct access to the large deck where you’ll find comfortable seating, a BBQ, and fresh mountain air. When you’re ready for a dip or boat ride a gentle slope will lead you to the private dock with lake access. In the evening, gather around the rock fire pit as you watch the sun go down.

A unique feature of this home is the detached game room! Inside, you’ll be met with hours of entertainment—including pool, air hockey, foosball, arcade basketball, ping pong, darts, chess, and even a poker table.

When it’s time to enjoy a meal, there’s a seat for everyone. The dining room offers seating for 6, plus an additional 6 seats at the adjacent long breakfast bar. Steps away, you’ll find a table for 4 in the living room. Those wanting to soak up the sun can set their plate on one of the outside tables that seat 8 in total.

This home also has no shortage of comfy places to sleep! Upstairs you’ll find six bedrooms with queen beds, including one with an attached bathroom with a shower. An adjacent bathroom with a shower services the other bedrooms. There’s also a bunk room with two sets of twin bunk beds located on this floor. Downstairs you’ll discover another bedroom with a queen bed, a bathroom with a shower—plus a small kitchen that includes a fridge, sink, and table for two.

Why limit yourself to enjoying only one lake during your stay? With a 35 minute proximity to downtown Coeur d’Alene, you can enjoy your coffee overlooking sparkling Hayden Lake and spend the afternoon paddle boarding, kayaking or boating on Lake Coeur d’Alene.

The lively downtown area offers a variety of shopping and dining options, as well as pristine parks, sandy beaches, volleyball, basketball, and more—all with that small town feel!

Children and adults alike will enjoy relaxing and playing in this scenic Hayden Lake home.

Sleeps a lot of people but needs some TLC.

  • 3 of 5

Overall we had a great time and the house was spacious and slept our large family without any problems. The property in general needs some attention and general maintenance. We could not swim off the dock because of the weeds, mud and shallow water which was a big disappointment. It would have been nice to have beach towels and some water toys supplied.

Beautiful view

  • 3 of 5

This cabin/home has a great view of the lake and lots of space for a large family. We had many adults and very young children. My adult children had so much space to prepare food, eat, talk, and relax. We rented a boat, and the company picked it up right from the dock. The sunsets were so beautiful to watch as I sat on the deck and enjoyed the view. We saw lots of fishermen fishing for bass, too. I wish I , had more time to spend in the cabin to watch the changes happening each day on the lake. I'm going to miss seeing the lake from the bedroom window each morning.

Beautiful house and location!

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I loved our stay at the Hayden Lake house! We got hit with a bunch of snow while we were there - and the plows were quick to come through, although the road was fairly slick. None of us had any cell service at all at the house, and the wifi/internet is VERY limited (and there is a note upon arrival asking that you not stream or use much internet - which was difficult for our group as several of us were parents with no other way to check in with our small children at home).

The house itself is absolutely stunning with so so much room. We felt incredibly comfortable. The kitchen was missing a few staples - such as hot pads and hand towels (which caused some issues with the amount of cooking we were doing - we ended up having to use bathroom towels to dry dishes, remove dishes from the oven, act as hot pads). The heat was also a bit of a struggle but once we went and picked up some firewood and were able to use the wood burning stove in the basement and the fireplace in the kitchen things warmed up.

We all definitely would love to come back to this house! Overall our visit was absolutely fantastic

Owner's Response: We're so thrilled to hear that overall you had a wonderful stay in this beautiful home! We will take note of the kitchen additions. Regarding the wifi, the location of this home reduces the availability of more reliable wifi, but should other options become available, we'll definitely look into them! Thank you for your business and we hope to see you again soon!

Marvelous home, much bigger than we thought

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the house very much and our time there was a blast. With a couple of minor changes it would have been perfect. And a popcorn popper would be a nice addition to the kitchen.

Big Beautiful Ranch

  • 5 of 5

The Team members at the management company were pleasant. Nice property, beautiful views, nice ranch decor and LOTS of bedrooms. Fire pit used every night, dock for the boat was another very nice feature although the dock can use more cleats to tie up to. We had a great time!
