If you are anywhere near this part of Idaho, or want a destination vacation in a scenic place, this is a must see. We visited in the spring, and I would guess... More

We love the view from the resort, we boat on the lake in the summer, but looking at the lake from the 18th floor gave us an additional perspective. The scenic mountains, the occasional boats, the blue skies and docks were peaceful and inspiring.

I loved this lake. We spend many hours walking around the lake. The water was cold, but it was fantastic.

I love this lake it has it all. White sand beaches, rock cliffs, lots of trees, and you can watch some of the best sunsets here that you will ever see. I am the owner of Toms Diving Adventures in Coeur d'Alene and as divers we love the lake because the lake has been there for well over 100 years... More

Living on Lake Coeur d'Alene is one of the few rare privileges that you can bestow on yourself. Eagles soaring past your window, osprey showing off their catch, geese flying formation over the bay searching for their next landing area. This scenic body of water has lured lovers of peaceful surroundings for decades. While I've only lived here for 15... More

It was beautiful, serene and crystal clear. We were there off season so it was peaceful. We enjoyed the solitude of the lake and the surrounding mountain. The Lake Drive was nice. The small town very pretty. Worth the stop.
