“GREAT ROOMS...better than great beds...and what a view”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

WE booked this hotel on a bike ride on the trail of coeur d'alene. Excellent place to stay. Limited food and other types of stores (one trading post), but nice restaurant on the docks...

The trail was directly below the room. One of the few places to stay on the Trail. I would suggest this plan if riding. Day One...Kellogg to Harrison (37 miles), Day two...Harrison to Plummer, Day Three...return. We spotted moose, all kinds of wildlife, on the trail. Lake is directly below the hotel....so your views (which every room has), are great. The owners totally helpful. I even paid to take a ride back to Kellogg so we could skip some of the return ride on the trail...fairly reasonably..

Just returned from a 3-day stay at Lakeview Lodge, which we booked to skate the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes. Beautiful room, great location, warm and welcoming hosts. I can't recommend the Lakeview Lodge, Harrison, or the Trail more highly. If you want to skate (or bike) the Trail (and you should - it is absolutely amazing, especially for long-distance skaters) you MUST make this your home base.

We stayed in room 14, a king sized bed on the second floor with a balcony. The room was nicely appointed with a native american theme. The view was spectacular. The birds were active, green back swallows building nests, attack hummingbirds, the mating calls of grebes, and an osprey surveying the realm of his lake. The king size bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed the little refrig and microwave. The owners were especially accomendating of our needs. We rode the Trail of the Coeur d'alenes from Mullan and they assisted us with information and a generous checkout time. We would stay there again and recommend you stay there also.

We rented a suite of rooms...full kitchen with breakfast bar counter, living room with sleeper sofa, separate bedroom (no door between) with king bed and bath. The view was incredible. The price was incredible ($85) for all of that as well. The room could have been cleaner and there were places on the living room wall that were scuffed/marked up. The bathroom grout around the bathtub was discolored and the light switch upon entering the main room needed scrubbing, but overall the suite was adequately clean. The rooms appeared to have had fresh paint within the last two years and the kitchen counter was tiled nicely. There was one hole in the wall...a painted over electrical box with no cover that the phone cord went through. The decor was very "bear"....pillows with bears, framed pictures with bears, coasters with bear paw prints, area rug with bears and other wildlife, various knick knacks with the bear theme. Nice pottery style dishes and mugs. It was a nice touch and made the suite much more unique. There was also a free standing gas fireplace in the bedroom to add a bit more ambiance. Check-in was a little technologically challenged, but not a problem. It's a very small town so expect small town technology. This place is right on the water and the view in the morning with the sun rising and a mist hanging in the air was gorgeous! In spite of it not being spotless, it is well worth the money paid and we will visit again and explore Harrison.

This little lodge, in the quiet town of Harrison right next to the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes (bike trail), has been beautifully redone. Our room with King bed & "kitchenette" was very, very nice. It had a full kitchen, including oven and dishwasher. The decor theme was "fishing" and it was very nicely done. The bed was comfy, as were the chairs in the sitting area. The friendly owner showed us several units, all of which looked nice (not all have dishwashers). The balcony looks right out onto Coeur d'Alene Lake. Perfect place for a relaxing get-away if you enjoy biking or walking.

We were there during the off-season, but the room was freshly cleaned and the bed freshly made. We'll be back soon!!!

I'm really confused about the reviews saying this inn was "beautifully renovated". If that is the case, Idaho has some really interesting construction standards.

First off, let me say that the view is absolutely phenomenal. I would probably stay here again because of the view of the lake alone. Not to mention the fact that this is about the only place to stay in the tiny town of Harrison.

So, that said, what's my beef? Well, our room-- specifically the bathroom and bed-- were not particularly clean. I realize this was the off-season, and perhaps the room hadn't been looked at in a while, but that wouldn't account for the shower window which had not been wiped down in a long time, or the small pieces of dead bug on my pillow (not a huge deal, looked like a fly, nothing itchy-scratchy).

To be fair, the price for this room was incredibly low. Even during their high season the place isn't going to break the bank.

And did I mention the view? Yes, that view will hide a multitude of sins.

The bed was squishy, squishy soft and my husband and I had such a horrible sleep we got up and left around 5:30 in the morning.

As I was lying in bed and reading I glanced up at the ceiling and was confronted by some really weird construction work. It looked like somebody had screwed lats onto the ceiling with basic construction screws. There were some water stains around the area out to the private patio (a very cool amenity-- like the view).

This is a really lovely area and this motel has the best location and view of any place I've been in the Pacific Northwest. If they could just tidy up a bit their rating would really jump up.

The fall weather was crisp and the bike trail was perfect for our new REI Cruiser bikes (granny bikes to some, cool beach bikes to others, but just plain comfortable to us). We sat high in the seats taking in the lush country side and cherishing the silence broken only by bird calls and the rustle of leaves. There was a pleasant surprise around every bend in the trail. Water, meadows and hills... all picture perfect.
The trail is why we came to Harrison. We did not expect much in the way of food and lodging in such a small town. But again we had a surprise at every turn. Once a run down hotel, the Lakeview Lodge has been transformed into a home away from home. In front, lovely landscaping with casual tables and chairs on a flagstone patio, provide a place for groups of bikers and families to congregate. In back, every room has a balcony with chairs over looking the lake. Walking into our cozy suite with delightful furnishings was more like staying at a friend's home than in a hotel. The owners welcomed us like family, taking time out to visit and share information about the town. One of the best tips was to try the quiche at the Tin Cup cafe. Don't miss it!! The owner of the restaurant also took time to share her story of renovating an old building providing space for small businesses to launch. The friendly hardworking people of this growing town have so much to be proud of.
We enjoyed our time in Harrison. I hope you have time to sit on the balcony to enjoy the "lake view" some day soon.
