About Kirk Dunckel
Home owners, Kirk & Shannon Dunckel moved to Coeur d'Alene after spending over 25 years in the Seattle area. Deciding to move "back home" where they were raised and closer to immediate family members was always in their plan. They have four children and with the youngest one off to college, it felt right to head East and get out of the rain. Moving only four hours away still allows occasional trips to Seattle to see their kids and treasured friends. Kirk retired from the Snoqualmie Valley School District after 31 years, with over 20 years in administration as a Middle School Principal. Kirk is now working as a High School Vice Principal in the Coeur d'Alene School District. Shannon works as a national sales broker in the beverage industry and specializes in the three tier system. She focuses primarily on the categories of beer, soda and private label products. On behalf of her client's, Shannon makes HQ calls on the largest retailers in the United States and assists in all aspects brand management, marketing and sales.
Kirk Dunckel purchased this Estate in 2014
Why Kirk Dunckel chose Coeur d'Alene

Wonderful place with wonderful people
We had such a great time! Shannon and Kirk are such nice supportive people. We feel like we made new friends and look forward to returning. The kids got to help feed the horses, groom them, and ride them. The house is beautiful and sitting on the deck overlooking the fields was spectacular. Thank you both so much for everything!
Thank you so much! We feel the same way and wish you were closer! We hope the kids have a great school year and wish you all the best, Kirk and Shannon
Hands down 5 stars!
Kirk and Shannon have created such a warm and welcoming home away! We are a family of 4 and stayed for my sisters wedding. With all the coming and going of all the wedding to do's it was comforting for me as a mother to know my teenage daughters were in a safe and secure place during our many errands. We baked cakes, made cheesecakes and loved having full use of the well equipped kitchen, saving us from meeting up at restaurants for our every meal. |We played all kinds of games. We will enjoy these memories for years to come. We can't thank the Dunkels enough!!
OFF THE CHARTS...Magical
This is a beautiful property. Kirk and Shannon are amazing. Our family had the best time. Our stay was magical.
We had an awesome family reunion at this beautiful home!
We really had a wonderful time staying at this beautiful and unique house! There were many details that really made it enjoyable! The deck is awesome, especially during a full moon! Watching the horses in the evening, during the full moon, was so peaceful! We spent many hours catching up with family on the deck, day and night. Shannon and Kirk were so kind and accommodating! Shannon took the time to give a tour of her beautiful horses. They both went out of their way to make sure that we had what we needed! We were all very comfortable! The surround sound music in every room was especially enjoyable, as it had everyone singing songs and dancing with grandkids! The view is stunning and the sunrises were colorful! This is a special property that we all thoroughly enjoyed. We're still talking about it! As well, my family used the extra bikes that Shannon and Kirk made available. How wonderful that we all were able to check out the beautiful bike trails in Coeur D' Alene together! I would definitely recommend this property! Shannon and Kirk will make your visit one that you will never forget! I feel like I have made a lifetime friend with them! They are a very special couple!
Great two weeks at CDA
Our family reunion at Kirk and Shannon’s home was wonderful! We literally did something everyday and still didn’t do everything we wanted to do. The owners were great and we enjoyed them immensely. Their house is great and we really enjoyed the views.
Look No Further this is the place to stay in Coeur D'Alene
From the moment you drive up to the house, your breath will be taken away. This property has to be one of Coeur D'Alene’s most amazing homes! The interior of the house is absolutely gorgeous!! All the decor was hand picked by the owner Shannon and some hand made by Kirk. The bed was so comfortable that I didn’t even get under the covers. Our kids are in their 20’s and they loved it! My 16 yr. son loved the game room. Absolutely wonderful owners who took the time to talk to us about Coeur D'Alene. We are retiring here and they gave us great advice. Amazing home and amazing owners. Thank you so much!! The Meeks :)
Thank you so very much for your kind comments and thoughtful response! We enjoyed having you stay with us as well and it was even more fun to talk about your future move to this wonderful area. We are very excited for all of you; you will love it! Please stay in touch and let us know when you make the move. We will be happy to help in any way and will even let you borrow our farm truck to move if you need it! All the best and thanks again for staying with us, Kirk & Shannon
