Known for water sports, mountains, and pristine National Forest, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, attracts people from all over the world to experience the dozens of lakes left behind by glaciers from the Ice Age. Striking mountain vistas, grassy lawns, meandering trails, and lakeside parks and recreation abound. Although there are a wide variety of million-dollar properties to consider for your second home away from home, we found one in particular that is the essence of Coeur d’Alene lakefront living – a log home right on Cougar Bay! There are so many details to love, we felt it deserved its own post. Take a look and see for yourself.
When it comes to log cabins in Coeur d’Alene, this one takes the cake. It’s situated right on the water with 4,084 square feet of luxury living and entertaining, plus 500 feet of shoreline, and a 60-by-40 shop.
The property description reveals it was “the summer residence of the Hagadone family at Casco Bay, which is now relocated to its current site at Cougar Bay.” You know a home is good if someone is willing to pick it up and take it with them.
Inside you’ll find a warm and rustic feel throughout, affording magical views from nearly every point of the 5.74-acre lot. Five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a wood burning stone fireplace, vaulted ceilings, and rich wood logs and beams create the perfect environment for gatherings or peaceful retreats. A bright and airy kitchen with butler’s pantry and wet bar allows for fabulous home-cooked meals and cocktail hour.
For a private escape, the master awaits with ample space to unwind, a marble shower, separate raised bathtub, and massive walk-in closet.
We cannot get enough of the homes unique designer touches, from barn doors and wide plank accents, to pops of color, custom draperies, sophisticated wall coverings, and natural wood and stone finishes.
Here memories are made around the dining table, cozying up by the fire, and sitting out on the patio to enjoy the nature-filled views.
We love the adirondack chairs looking out at the water and mountains. In fact, the home is known for having some of the best bird watching around!
This is due to the fact that it’s ideally nestled next to the Nature Conservancy Preserve. It’s also just a short trip into town when you’re craving a bit of city charm. Much like primary residences, second homes are all about location, location, location and inviting interiors that allow you to refresh and renew. The cabin at 3730 S. Highway 95 offers all that and more.
3730 S Highway 95, Coeur D Alene, ID is currently listed by Randy and Christy Oetken of The Oetken Group at Windermere/Coeur d’Alene Realty for $1.2 million.
