About Jeff

I am an Idaho native and think you cannot beat North Idaho in the summertime with our great weather, and beautiful lakes and mountains. My husband and I have four children and enjoy boating, jet skiing and fishing in the summer, and the occasional trip to the mountains in the winter.

Jeff purchased this chalet in 2007

Why Jeff chose Post Falls

We purchased this property because we love the area and think Lake Coeur d'Alene is one of the greatest lakes for summer recreation in the country! Waterfront is the Place to be :)

What makes this chalet unique

Nestled between Coeur d'Alene and Spokane, this Property is the Perfect Central Location to the Airport and Shopping yet distant enough to enjoy the Quiet Solitude! You can get to many places quickly. If you set out on foot, you can take a short walk to Beaches, Hiking, Mountain Rock Climbing, Kayaking, Stand Up Paddleboarding, Boating. The White House, Oval Office, Mallard's, or GW Hunter's for a great meal.

The Location is Excellent Active Lifestyles. Within a 35-mile radius of Post Falls are 30 golf courses, the North Idaho Centennial Trail - a 56-mile-long paved walking and biking trail - Three State Parks, 55 Lakes and 4 Major Rivers. Lake Coeur d’Alene Scenic Cruises.

The Guest House is only 10 minutes from downtown Coeur d'Alene, 25 minutes from downtown Spokane and 35 minutes from Spokane International Airport. IronMan Triathletes We Welcome You!

Far Superior to a hotel room, cook your own meals in the kitchen or grill down on the lanai.

Very comfortable, attractive and convenient place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

The convenience and space of a small home for the price of an intermediately priced hotel room. There was no washer and dryer, so you need to take that into account for longer stays like mine. There was a mis-communication about arrival in that my instructions said it would be unlocked, but it wasn't. I called Jeff immediately, but didn't hear back for 4 hours, so I had rented a room at a nearby hotel since I had to get up for work early the next morning. Turns out that I was supposed to receive door code for entry, but did not. There was only one roll of toilet paper for a 3 week rental. There was a scarcity of basic flatware, Finally, there is a plasticized mattress cover that doesn't breathe and therefore was very sweaty until I put a towel between the sheet and mattress cover. Apparently it's part of a gel mattress pad which did however make the bed very comfortable. Despite these relatively minor (except for being unable to get in on arrival) glitches, I had a great visit and would love to stay there again.

Comfortable, clean, fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I vacationed the area with a slew of activities planned. We wanted a place to stay where we could wake up, make breakfast and relax a little before heading out ALL day. This placed nailed it!

All amenities needed were there, including a blender for my morning shake.

The soundbar is Bluetooth ready, so we had music in the morning.

There's a sliver view of the river and the high windows give you a view of the surrounding mountains.

Loved the place, we will be back!

Great place in Post Falls!

  • 5 of 5

This was a nice place with a great (although small) view of the river. It was as advertised and met our needs. Jeff was friendly and kind. There didn't appear to be River access when someone else was renting the main house, which was disappointing. It would have been great to have access with kayaks available to rent as well. But all in all it was a pleasant stay.

Perfect little rental

  • 5 of 5

I had to come out to CDA for business and what a perfect spot to stay. The rental was quiet, very clean and cozy. It was close to everything and very close to the freeway. I would recommend this little jewel to anyone. Sincerely, Dia
