It's a 90 minute cruise that is well worth doing. Good for couples and families. You hear some history and see large mansion type homes on the lake to little 300 sq feet homes built in the 40's and 50's on prime property. A beautiful lake. Look for the 14th hole in the lake at the golf course.

Finally! We have been wanting to visit this famous place since many many years ago but never had a good chance to go there. Then since we have a wedding invitation at Spokane, then we drove another 30 minutes east, and we finally arrived at Lake Couer D'Alene. It's an amazing sight! Had late lunch at Couer D'Alene Resort and... More

The dark blue waters, tall evergreens and mountains combine to make Coeur d'Alene Lake an idyllic spot. There's easy access to parks and trails from town.

You don't have to spend a lot of money to enjoy this lake! Of course there are boat rentals and cruises to take but there are also great sandy beaches with safe swimming areas! Good hiking trails (Tubbs Hill!) abound! Hungry? Loads of great restaurants off Sherman and several with water views! Enjoy!

One of the most beautiful lakes I have visited. The water is clear, scenery awesome. Be sure to take the boat tour and hear about the homes, history, etc.

We took the afternoon cruise around the top end of the lake. This is a very pretty lake with nice scenery , beautiful homes and, you see the only golf green in a lake ! The sun was shining so everyone was gathered on the deck. It is set up with tables and chairs rather than the usual hard benches.... More

We took a tour by boat around the lake. The homes surrounding the lake are beautiful. many of the homes only mode of transportation is boat due to the seclusion and remote area in which their homes were built. It was a great way to fully see the lake and area.

We started at the north end of the lake on the east side as someone suggested to us. What a beautiful view of the lake. This road winds around and up and down the hills along the lake. We stopped in Harrison to peruse a few shops and have a coffee at a cute coffee shop that has an amazing... More

It's lovely down by water. There is a nature trail down there and a marina and big hotel that has this very interesting walkway that goes right around the resort and has its own bridge. You can sit out at the end and enjoy the scenery
