With a beautiful and convenient locale on the southern shores of Lake Pend Oreille, a Bayview, Idaho vacation rental is the ideal place to relax and reconnect with nature. Halfway between Sandpoint and Coeur d'Alene, the largest lake in the state is at Bayview's doorstep. The 42 miles of Lake Pend Oreille shoreline stretch all the way to Sandpoint, providing easy access to fishing, boating, swimming, and water skiing.
Take a day trip to Farragut State Park, one of Idaho's most expansive parks. Explore hiking trails, view native wildlife, hit the beach, or play a few rounds on the two disc golf courses. Tour the Farragut Naval Training Station for a glimpse into Idaho's proud military history.
In the winter, skiing at Schweitzer Mountain Resort is just an hour north. Bayview itself is quite small and charming, with a handful of laid-back cafes and a general store. Of course, just 40 minutes south await the shopping, dining, golf courses, and spas of beautiful Coeur d'Alene.
If you feel like the charm of a smaller town, Sandpoint is only half an hour north or Post Falls 40 minutes southwest; even closer to home is the Hayden Lake area, offering an assortment of local eateries and shops 25 minutes away.
If you'd like to stay in a Coeur d'Alene area vacation rental, you might not find a more relaxing and laid-back destination than lovely little Bayview, Idaho!
