As other reviewers said, overall the house is dated, so that was totally expected. The location was perfect for the little town of Harrison, the bike shop snd the Trail of the Coeur D’Alene. Nice views of the lake. Very comfortable beds and stay. Made friends with the wonderful neighbors!
Starting with the positives - We rented this house for a week long family reunion. The location on the cove was perfect. Kids and dogs alike loved jumping into the lake from the dock and it was especially nice that we didn't have to worry about wake from passing boats. We definitely appreciated having the kayaks and paddleboards available to use. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, silverware, small appliances, etc. We didn't find a colander, but made do. The kitchen was large enough for us to move around without bumping into each other and the table had plenty of room for the 9 of us to eat, play games, put puzzles together. Sitting on the window seat was especially relaxing with an amazing view. Although the couch setup was a little awkward for viewing the TV, the furniture was comfortable with enough room for all of us.
There were several disappointments I feel need to be addressed - We viewed the photos for the property multiple times (for nearly a year) before deciding to rent. This rental was chosen not only for the location, but also because the photos showed a grassy area plus stairs into the lake which we felt was perfect for the kids and dogs. Both the grass and the stairs have been removed, yet the photos have not been updated on any of the rental sites. As mentioned, the window seat was a lovely spot, however, a thorough cleaning of the exterior of the windows would certainly improve the view. The carpet clearly needs attention, especially around the toilets. I called Vacasa on the day we checked in to advise the 2nd queen bedroom upstairs was missing a smoke detector. A Vacasa representative texted my husband to ask if all smoke detectors were missing. He replied to say we'd only noticed the one missing in the bedroom. A maintenance person never came by to resolve the issue.
Side note-I'd like to warn renters to be careful when crossing the street between the house and the garage. The street is fairly busy with fast drivers. Overall we loved the house and our stay!
