Took a lake cruise and saw the northern part of the lake. Many beautiful homes and sights on a calm lake. Enjoyed our quick visit.

I went on a Saturday during the summer and it was obviously super busy. It was still fun, we rented paddle boards and played volley and got Gooey's at the resort afterwards. I would recommend going on a weekday if possible to have a bit more serene experience.

Quiet and enjoyable. Even in winter it was very peacefull. I just happen to luck out when they had the Christmas festival of lighting the harbor lites. There is a path that runs along the beach front over to the college, a very pleasant walk among the trees.

The lake is very picturesque! Small mountains ring the outside of lake with lots of woods & downtown Coeur D'Alene is right by it. You can rent paddleboats or even take a plane ride around the lake. Several beaches for summer water fun & several pull-offs along the perimeter roads to take pictures

Views of the lake from the Tower at Coeur d'Alene Resort were great. The shore lines looks like mostly wilderness and not a lot of waterfront houses. The boat master told us fishing was great 100' from shore in many areas of the lake.
