Idaho Vacation Spotlight: Post Falls

Most outsiders wouldn’t consider Post Falls a “vacation” town. Geographically, it is located between Coeur d’Alene and Spokane and is typically considered a bedroom community. In less then 15 minutes you could be in Coeur d’Alene with the downtown bar scene, or watching an IMAX movie in River Park Square! Truth is your not going to stop in Post Falls for a weekend, but if you skip it altogether you will be greatly missing out. There are several amazing places to stop in Post Falls and you won’t want to skip it! The Spokane River dam (and where Post Falls gets it’s name) is an incredible site! Idaho Vacation Spotlight: Post FallsPictures never do rushing water justice, and its certainly true here! A short trip out from Post Falls proper is Falls Park. Surrounded by green forests and great places to each lunch or dinner, its a great stop for outdoors loving folks. It’s almost hidden gem status and the park is never stuffed with people. Truly a must stop!

Post Falls also has an excellent golf course in The Highlands! Often a venue for parties, weddings, the course features and excellent restaurant and pleasant, relaxed atmosphere. The golf pros keep their shop stocked with fantastic new products and it really is a friendly course to visit! If you love golfing and enjoy the North Idaho outdoors, make sure and mark this one down on your card.

Indépendant breweries and distilleries are really exploding in the United States, and it’s especially true here in Post Falls! In the past few years, half a dozen brewers have opened up small bistros where you can get great food, beer, and conversation! Of special note is Up North Distillery! They make fantastic whiskey and really strive to create an “underground” feel to the distillery. The food is amazing and you won’t be disappointed! We also have Selkirk Abbey and BiPlane Brewery offering fantastic ales to round out your slightly drunken trip through Post Falls! While not a vacation hotspot, there’s more then enough to do for a day! Whether your into relaxing in a spa, or enjoying the great outdoors, give the restaurants in Post Falls a shot! You will be glad you stopped in, even if you’re on your way someplace else!

Vacation Rentals on the Lake!

Vacation Rentals are Filling Up Quickly!

Vacation Rentals on the Lake!We’re getting closer to summer time and everyone wants to come stay out on the lake! Vacation rentals are big business here in Coeur d’Alene and as we get nearer to warm weather it gets harder to find the right vacation spot! Here are a few helpful tips to make sure you get a great place to stay!

  1. DON’T WAIT. Most vacationers think we jack up the price closer to the season start! Vacation Rentals on the Lake!Truth is, we have people book so early the price never has a chance to increase! By waiting you just risk losing the perfect vacation home!
  2. Check with the Rental Company. Sometimes when we acquire a new vacation rental, we are able to rent it before posting it to our website or VRBO! Give us a call to check if we have any unlisted properties available!
  3. Ask about off weeks. We get a lot of phone calls. One of the less commonly asked questions is about when we’re NOT busy! Feel free to ask about potentially available weeks that might be close to the season start-end dates. We might be able to sneak you in!
  4. Check in monthly. If you really want a property, sometimes bookings get canceled! Before you give up hope and re-book, wait a month and call us again. While cancelations aren’t common, they do happen from time to time!
  5. Be willing to take advice. I often get calls from people for a very specific property. When it isn’t available, its likely I have something else in the same area or condition! Don’t be afraid to take our advice. We want you to enjoy your stay and give us great reviews!

We wouldn’t steer you wrong! In season it’s impossible to find any available vacation rentals but with some careful planning you might just end up in the perfect spot!

We can’t wait to see you up here soon!
