Gorgeously situated on more than an acre of land overlooking Hayden Lake, this fully remodeled, lakefront home will bring a sense of cozy charm to your next summer vacation or quiet winter escape. Here on the shores of Mokins Bay (a delightfully tranquil no-wake zone), you'll have a private dock for swimming and boating, a wrap-around porch that's perfect for evening barbecues with a view of the lake, and a pair of inviting fireplaces to curl up next to each night.
With a freshly renovated interior and exterior as of 2021, this three-level home provides elements of woodsy charm that seamlessly blend with every modern convenience. Step inside the main level to find wood and stone tile floors, large windows that frame the surrounding evergreens, an open dining space with seating for eight, and an adjoining living room where you can watch TV (with a WiFi-enabled Blu-ray player for streaming) in the warmth of the fireplace. The kitchen has been updated from top to bottom, offering richly hued wood cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and beautiful stone countertops that make a memorable prep space. The outdoor areas are just as special, with a new dock on the lake, terraced landscaping, a gas grill for your nightly barbecues, and wonderful deck space overlooking the lake, the woods, and the surrounding mountains.
At night, you can leave the day's clothes and swimsuits to spin in the washer/dryer, stream movies in the living room, and retire to a comfortable bed - each bedroom has its own floor. The atmospheric master suite - featuring lovely wood walls and a jetted bathtub - is on the top floor, the guest room and another full bathroom with a walk-in shower are on the main level, and a fantastic bunk room with a second fireplace awaits downstairs.
This home sits on 1.1 acres - a rarity for the area - on the shores of Mokins Bay, a quiet, no-wake section of Hayden Lake that's great for swimming, paddleboarding, kayaking, and boating. The lake is wonderfully uncrowded, warm in the summertime, and a prime spot for fishing, sailing, and all types of water sports. In this private and secluded spot, you'll find safe tie-ups on your private dock, two public boat launches on the way to the house, as well as boats available to rent at the nearby Hayden Lake Marina. Also close to the house are the sandbar at Mokins Bay (where boaters can anchor and then wade onto the sandbar), Sportsman Park (five miles north), and Honeysuckle Beach (12 miles southwest). Downtown Coeur d'Alene is also just 18 miles southwest.
