About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

This loft, built in 2006, is a quiet retreat. It is a spacious 850 sq. feet, with a fully equipped kitchen and a sunset-view covered deck with a gas grill. Downtown, Lake Coeur d'Alene, North Idaho College and City Park are all within a 2-10 minute walk. The Centennial Trail is within a block, and skiing is only 45 minutes away. It is a great launching pad for an active visit.

I will do all I can to help make your stay enjoyable!

About David Groth

In June of 2016, I retired after 37 years as an elementary school teacher and principal in Coeur d'Alene. I love what is accessible from the loft and my house, (on the same property) by foot, on bikes or by car. I enjoy great hiking, fishing, bicycling, cross country and alpine skiing within 45 minutes. I love Coeur d'Alene!

David Groth purchased this apartment in 2006

Why David Groth chose Fort Grounds

I have lived in this neighborhood since 1983; the loft is on the back of the property where I live.

What makes this apartment unique

I enjoy walking three minutes to the lake, biking the Centennial Trail from my house, walking to events downtown and at North Idaho College. I have rented to Ironman athletes for each of the 12 years of the event, and in 2009 and 2011 I completed the race.

Great stay in lovely loft

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that I stayed in the loft & enjoyed the whole experience. The location is fantastic & I enjoyed taking my grandchildren to the near by park.

The owner provides lots of equipment for outdoor activities & has helpful suggestions for restaurants & amenities.

It is a wonderful place to stay.

Great location. Minutes walk to downtown. Arrived late and had to leave early so unable to enjoy the kayaks and bicycles.

Wish I could give a 2 star rating and keep the secret to ourselves!

  • 5 of 5

But that would be bad karma For sure because this is an amazing place. Located a short walk to the beach an town it is I the perfect spot. Well done loft with quality finishes all around. Comfortable with everything you need to cook or BBQ. Quiet area, great deck for morning coffee or evening dinner.

David was a thoughtful host and we hope he looks us up when he is in Boulder.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This loft rental is perfectly located to walk to the beach, downtown restaurants and shops and is easy access to highways. The owners ensure everything is ready and clean for your stay. I especially like that the owners make a point of being non-obtrusive and provide privacy, even though they are living next door and are available if you need anything.

5 Stars for this loft, but the mattress on the bed is a 3 Star. This does not take away from how nice this rental is, just a minor comment worth noting. Everything else works and feels great about this loft. We will stay here again when in CDA.
