Situated in the historic Fort Grounds neighborhood of Coeur d'Alene, this vacation rental is a nice walk from downtown and the Coeur d'Alene Resort. City Park & Beach is just three blocks away, and the North Idaho Centennial Trail is just out the back gate, making this home ideal for cyclists and joggers.

This bungalow retains its historic charm both inside and out. The covered front porch features plenty of seating, providing a nice spot to enjoy your morning coffee. The interior is bright and colorful. The living room features original wood floors and the original brick fireplace (please note that this is decorative - not for guest use).

Stretch out on the comfy living room sofa and use the Apple TV to stream your favorite Netflix shows. If you get hungry, head to the cheery sunflower-themed kitchen, where you'll find everything you need to put together a tasty home-cooked meal. Sit down to eat in the pine-wood dining nook.

This home includes an enclosed back porch with a doggy door and a large backyard with a privacy fence, making it especially hospitable to four-legged travelers. Please note that a maximum of two dogs are welcome with an additional small nightly fee.

With two bedrooms and one-and-a-half bathrooms, this bungalow can accommodate up to four guests. Each of the two bedrooms features a queen-size Murphy bed. One bedroom is light and airy, while the other includes warm wood paneling. The covered back porch can also function as a third bedroom with the addition of an air mattress.

The full bathroom features an updated walk-in shower with a luxury showerhead - perfectly refreshing after a long day exploring the area!

Family-friendly activities abound in Coeur d'Alene, from boating and kayaking on the lake to golfing, hiking, and cycling. Coming for Ironman, either as a participant or an onlooker? This is a great rental for you! Head downtown to peruse the shops, catch a movie, or grab a bite to eat. Silverwood Theme Park is less than 20 miles to the north and offers thrill rides, water slides and more.

If you visit in early August, be sure to check out the annual Art on the Green Festival at North Idaho College, an outdoor arts and crafts show featuring live music performances, talented artisans, and tasty treats. Visiting in the colder months? Coeur d'Alene is within 90 miles of four separate ski resorts, providing skiers and snowboarders with plenty of opportunities to conquer the slopes.

Our family found the house a perfect location and house. I really appreciated that each bedroom had a bathroom. Kitchen not well stocked for serious cooking, no mixing bowls, etc., so if your planning on baking bring some equipment. Good place
Manager response:
Linda, thank you for the feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed the location and the home. We apologize the mixing bowls were missing from the kitchen. The local manager has been notified. Thank you!

The house is super cute and located in a very accessible part of town, we met the owner during our stay and they were very sweet. Would love to stay here again.

It was the perfect spot as it was within walking distance to the City Park, the river and lake, and town. The Fort Grounds Grill was a great place to eat the night we arrived. All in all, a good place at a reasonable rate for summer.

This home is located in a great location in the city. It's right off the highway but on a very private street with not a lot of traffic. You can walk to restaurants and shops. It's an old home but comfortable.

This place is quirky but comfortable. Neighbors were very friendly and we loved during on the front porch. It isn't very big but had plenty of space for our stay.

Vintage home in a quiet neighborhood, close to downtown and Centenial Trail. Great fenced in yard for our dog. Nice little restaurant at the end of the street too.
Patti B. Jun 2017
This house is in a good location. Close to downtown, close to a nice pub. I think the owner lives next door and was very nice. The fenced yard is a big plus for our dogs. Also, the trail is literally right outside the back gate.

The property needs work, the house is OLD and in need of some TLC. I was disappointed not to have live TV, just Apple TV, which is recorded shows.
Bryan S. Jun 2017
Quaint home on quiet street very close to large park and downtown Coeur d' Alene.
Brandee M. Jun 2017
We were very happy with this place. It's location is perfect for enjoying downtown, literally steps away from a local pub. Very quiet neighborhood, next door neighbors were very friendly. The home is old so there is a lot of character. The yard is nice and private, even our dogs (who suffer a severe case of "stranger danger") felt secure and happy at this place!
