Come stay in Idaho paradise at the locally famous, downtown adjacent CDA Lake A-frame cabin! Formerly known as the Apache Rock Shop prior to the 1990's, it is now a fun vacation rental known as Eagle Outpost.

The space
Enjoy one of the few private lake properties with beach & docks along the beautiful northeast section of Lake Coeur d' Alene. The scenic lake drive here is easy, just 10 minutes from downtown. Your neck of the woods spans over an acre, including a hill trail to 200ft of lakefront. In addition to the cabin, I have 2 RV hookup spaces on a separate lot available, and a docked houseboat also for rent (if not previously booked) for the ultimate group experience - (Airbnb.com/h/cdahouseboat).

Do something different than your typical stay at an average house in a packed residential neighborhood - remember you're in scenic north Idaho! The cabin property stretches from road level lake views to the private access lakefront - all yours to explore. Have a campfire with friends and family in our awesome basalt firepit area, watch eagles soar (this area boasts one of the largest bald eagle populations in America), and soak in the classic cedar-sided hot tub while soaking in amazing sunsets from the perfectly situated west facing shoreline.

Eagle Outpost is perfect for just about any party, from an artist's solo retreat, to a romantic couple's getaway, to group gatherings if bringing extra RV's or other sleeping arrangements (per person fees apply beyond 4 guests - please inquire for more details.) With our long half circular driveway and two entry/exit points, there is plenty of parking for multiple vehicles and toys. Please note - booking just to have a "house party" is not allowed via Airbnb regulations, so if you plan for multiple guests please inquire beforehand to better describe your vacation details.

Just outside your front door you'll find the beginning of the awesome paved Centennial Trail (takes you all the way to Spokane, 23 miles away if adventurous), and just beyond that our beach and dock fronting beautiful lake Coeur d'Alene.

Being a lake property, there are seasonal water toys available for your use - a massive water trampoline with balance log, launch pad and slide, 3 SUP's, inflatable rafts, water noodles, 1 hard solo and 3 inflatable dual kayaks, three 17ft canoes, fishing poles, and more! Also enjoy the picnic table and barbecue on the docks during lake days. If adventurous, you can use watercraft anytime of year including winter as the lake is deep here and won't freeze.

Also available are his and her bikes and kids bikes - after all you have the Centennial Trail right across the road! Bringing young kids? - there are bike trailers too. And having ample property, in addition to biking and lake fun, I have a variety of seasonal outdoor games - Frisbee golf, cornhole, horseshoes, tether ball, and other fun stuff as the list keeps growing. Coming soon - ebike rentals, great for jaunts to Higgins Point or trips into town 5 miles away. In fact if you think of any toys or amenities we don't have, please ask and I'll try to find a way to get them, or at the very least direct you where to go, such as ebike rentals, cross country ski rentals, etc.

*** PLEASE NOTE that the cabin bedroom is an open loft. It feels very private as guests below can't see you, but take this into consideration if staying with others. And note the size of the cabin, it's 642 sqft with loft but feels more spacious thanks to the open floor plan. Also note that guests beyond two persons will need to use the closely spaced but very comfortable queen sized futons in the common area, or the seperate bunkhouse ***

IMPORTANT NOTICE - the trail to lake is a little steep, about 80 feet of decline including stair sections (71 stars total, see pics), so please be in average physical condition and watch the little ones if you're taking advantage of the lake and dock. It's not too bad, I take my entire family with kids ranging in age from 3 years to 10 quite often, just be aware of it. Also there's a somewhat busy road (depending on time of day and season, no through traffic) out front before the lake trail, and no gates yet on both sides of the half circular driveway, so watch the kids and any pets.

ALSO IMPORTANT - although this is a private property with no immediate neighbors, I do have a houseboat moored at the docks below (seasonal from April - Oct). The property is large and spread apart enough to accommodate everyone, please just be aware that you might have houseboat neighbors below at times, and they may chose to share the dock and beach areas with you, but not the hot tub or anything on the cabin level, that area is for cabin guests only (houseboat guests just park there, on the very north side). This said, the beach is fairly large and there's plenty of dock space so all should have a great time at the lake without feeling crowded. TWO BRAND NEW DOCKS (one for cabin guests the other for houseboat guests) have construction starting in the summer/fall of 2021, so there will more lakefront privacy and reduced waves/improved swimming areas after completion.

If you want total privacy, please inquire as it can be arranged if the houseboat isn't already booked.

For activity lovers, north Idaho is an amazing four season playground for watersports, hiking, biking, atv riding, fishing, gem finding, hunting, skiing, snowmobiling, etc. Down-time activities include a growing list of excellent restaurants, bars, music venues, coffee houses, and a wide variety of shops. Information buffs can explore the areas rich history in forestry, mining, and transportation via some great local tours and museums. Other major attractions nearby include Silverwood theme park and the year-round Silver Rapids indoor waterpark. The possibilities are endless! Reach out beforehand and let me know what you're interested in, or let me help you create an itinerary - I know this area and its people and businesses very well, and promise to help make your vacation unforgettable :)

UTILITIES NOTICE - the cabin is outside city limits. Electricity is provided by a major energy co, but wastewater is handled by a septic not sewer system.. Food scraps and grease are not to go down drains, and given the septic system we ask that you be sensitive to TP usage, and flush no other products. Also the system can only process a certain amount per day, so we ask that you be conscious of water usage. So a little different than the average city house, but easy to do! Wi-Fi is great thanks to a direct link satellite system, so you can enjoy our Netflix or log into any of your own streaming channels on the smart TV's. A large DVD library (both kids and adult) plus an Xbox 360 with a few games are also available.

PET NOTICE - We are dog friendly, but ALL dogs require pre-approval, and come with rules and are subject to a $50 pet fee per animal if approved. ALL other pets please inquire. No cats, sorry :(

Thanks and please reach out if you have any questions at all. Thank you :-)
