Amazing trip we won't forget

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jerry's house and he set us up well and showed us the ropes. I highly recommend you rent the 2 boats and 2 jet ski's to go with if you have a big group.

LOCATION!! Could not be any better!

  • 4 of 5

If you want to be near downtown but not in town or the resort, this is the place to be. My wife and I, along with our son's family of four, stayed comfortably in the home. When we were looking for a vacation place, we were unsure if a "boat access only" place would work, but all of us loved it. The kids absolutely loved the water and the watercraft available. The owner, Jerry, helped us city folks get used to lake living and was available for us all the time. If you want the best view on the lake, this is where you must go!

Stunning Location & Fantastic Fun!

  • 5 of 5

From the get go we knew the rental would be great because the owner Jerry was so accommodating to our very last minute request of renting his place with very short notice and all our questions were answered immediately. The location, layout and amenities (kitchen had what you needed, especially liked the blender that crushed the ice perfectly for the many lime margarita's that were enjoyed on the deck while watching the sun set after a day on the water and playing on your own private beach)... everything was as listed and the property was clean and well-maintained. The house was perfect (kids loved the sleeping cabins) - very kid friendly and had all the toys a kid (big & small) could possible want at a lakefront house, as well as, several telescopes and hi-end binoculars to watch the bald eagle, osprey...and see the happenings on the lake close up. We had plans to see more of Coeur d'Alene and the surrounding area (amusement park, Tubbs Hill...) but we did not need to go anywhere - we felt like we were on our own glorious private island and we had all that we needed (after we stocked up on food at Costco of course). It was amazing; we cannot say enough about Jerry's place! It was one for the books as they say - happy memories and fun filled adventures...As we were leaving, the kids were begging us to promise that we would return - and we had no qualms about saying yes, of course we will!!! We have been showing off our pictures of the amazing views from the house and all the fun we had. We have no doubt that our Canadian friends are very tempted to rent Jerry's place and we hope our review will convince you not to hesitate. It is soooo... worth it! We have driven past Coeur d'Alene for years and we wish we'd stopped & discovered it sooner. We will never think of Idaho as just about potatoes - what a beautiful city Coeur d'Alene is and Jerry's place is "the" place on the lake! We could not possibly rent another place when we go back - Jerry & Jerry's place with the view; the relaxing, warm atmosphere; very homey, not fancy, a down to earth place where you can appreciate the beauty of nature & lakefront living, and of course all the lake toys spoiled us for any other place in the area!!! We will be back! Thank you so much Jerry for sharing your place with us!

Jerry was extremely nice and gave us a spectacular deal for Labor Day weekend. We couldn't have asked for a better weekend. Incredible views, great fishing, and the cabin had everything you could possibly need for a weekend away. The place was spotless when we arrived and I would definitely recommend this place to anyone interested in a get away.

Jerry's Place

  • 4 of 5

This was a good experience with the owner making the real difference. The vacation experience is always more enjoyable when you are dealing with good people and Jerry would be one of those people. The place was good, the view was great and the experience nice!!

Would recommend this place especially if you have a bigger group becasue of the numerous rooms and activities. Boating , jet skiing, etc.

We cant wait to go Back!!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy when we discovered that we could rent this beautiful gem on the lake. We called at the last minute and the Owner agreed and gave us an awesome deal, he even let us stay later on the last day. The description and pictures describe it perfectly. We were able to bring our 2 dogs, out of town relatives and my family. The place was clean and ready to move in for the weekend! When we left we all pitched in and cleaned up behind ourselves. Our deposit was promptly mailed back to us within a few days. We appreciated that there were drawers and cupboards full of some things we didn't bring, like a can opener, pans and utensils to name a few. We loved the beautiful view, 2 beaches, kayaks, trails, etc.. It is so nice that it is a 5 minute boat ride from downtown CDA and all that has to offer. I would most definitely recommend this to friends. We truly enjoyed our time, and cannot wait to go back this summer.
