Instead of skyscrapers and an endless sea of concrete, downtown Coeur d'Alene vacation rentals are nestled on the lake's edge and wrapped in the beauty of surrounding mountain ranges. Here, vintage cruiser bicycles are tethered to light poles that have been adorned with baskets of flowers.Trees share space with the storefronts and sidewalk, and on any given weekend the roads are closed, paving way for farmer's markets, art exhibits, and food carts. In winter, this idyllic mountain community is blanketed in snow.
Whether you've come for business or pleasure, Coeur d'Alene
will forever etch into your memory for its abundance of outdoor recreation, beauty, and small-town character.
