We came out for the week leading up to Labor Day and the house did not disappoint, its in a great spot not having to drive around the lake, quick easy access to town, fishing right off the dock which was big and had room for both boats we had with us. Some of the kids were starting online school and there was always quite space for them. Loved the house and will come back.

If you love them in the kitchen. They will be there. Not pleased with the lack of cleaning. Whoever stayed there before us got screwed on the cleaning fee they had to pay. Very disappointed in the lack of cleaning. My daughter stepped on an earring backing as soon as we walked in. I looked under the beds to make sure we didn’t kick anything underneath. There were enough dust bunnies to knit my family each an ugly sweater. If you wanted to bake a cake and decorate it great. It had everything for that. But I had to buy grilling utensils to use for the grill. None were furnished. I had to buy two pans just to cook food in because the pans furnished were not properly prepared. They were cast iron. The irony was I had to buy my own toilet paper because none was furnished. Didn’t expect that to happen for a place I rented. View was nice and relaxing but over priced for what we had to purchase and the ants still a turn off. Also the a/c went down on one of the hottest days of the year. They at least fixed it in the same day. I hope whoever stays after us gets a better cleaning than we did. Vacasa seems over priced. I have used home away and vrbo and going properties more clean than this property and the fees were a bit high. Look elsewhere

The view and the surroundings were so beautiful and the sound of the water was so relaxing.

We were two families on a road trip from California and this was our last shared spot together before we went our separate ways. The house is amazing. The master bedroom was the most well appointed, the other rooms downstairs felt a bit neglected. One of the bedrooms did not have available reading lights (none of the sockets worked) and the vent was right above the bed so when the thermostat kicked on, it was really loud above your head. The other bedroom's bed was like a taco, the boxspring was broken in the middle and we noticed on the day we were leaving that one of the slats on the bed had fallen off and had not been replaced. The bunk beds were great for a bunch of kids but very squeaky. The kitchen was well stocked with great Le Crueset cookware. It was a nice shared living area so both our families could hang out together. The dock was Awesome!!! Wish the weather had been better during our stay. We are long time VRBO renters (20 years)and were not very happy with all the additional fees that we noticed much later. Our bad for not noticing sooner, but we were in a rush to book a place before our arrival have never in our experience been slapped with so many additional fees and taxes. Meaning, the per night charge when you're shopping for a suitable home to rent is not accurate. We ended up paying more than $600 of fees extra for a 3 night stay, which is a more than $200 per night charge. Just pay attention to that. The on-site manager was very helpful when we had questions about parking our two oversized vehicles by the house.

The house was immaculate, great space for family and friends, the views were amazing, and Vacasa was very informative. I highly recommend this property to friends and family

Nice private lake house with plenty of room. Not too far from restaurants and fun things to do. Loved being able to walk down to dock and fish. Only suggestion I have would be to maybe add a crib or pack-n-play for young children. Baby gates and high chair were a big help. Would definitely stay again!
Manager response:
Hello - thank you for your feedback! We will take your suggestion for the addition of a crib or pack-n-play to the home under advisement. In the meantime, we do encourage guests to bring any items they need for their stay. We hope to host you again soon!
Christine J. May 2019
We had 6 adults and 2 children, 3 years old and the other 5 months. This home had baby gates and a small table chair for the baby! The kitchen is well stocked and very open for people to move around in. We had plenty of space at the dining table and the view is priceless! I highly recommend this home!

Great location, very relaxing...
Wendy V. Oct 2018
Would definitely stay here again. Very close to Silverwood Theme Park which is why we were there. Unfortunately we were looking forward to sitting around a firepit but it was gone. Some minor upkeep items that need to be addressed within the house but other than that we really enjoyed our stay.
Carla Faye T. Oct 2018
My Sister and I and our adult children were at this home for 3 nights. What a fabulous experience! The home was roomy enough for all 7 of us and overlooked beautiful views of Hayden Lake. We were also impressed by the cleanliness when we arrived. The surrounding area is quiet, inviting and peaceful...very private as well. Hope to see you again!
Anita K. Jun 2018
The views from every room are awesome. There were 4 adults and 2 children in our 10 night stay at the house and it had everything we needed. Could use a recycle bin and was disappointed that the master bath jacuzzi tub wasn't working due to a previous leak - but other than that would highly recommend.
Manager response:
We do have the tub scheduled for repair and apologize for the disappointment this guest experienced in not being able to use it.

We spent our last summer vacation at Starling Lake House. The location was perfect for our trip to Silverwood and Triple Play. The house had plenty of room, was stocked perfectly, and offered amazing views of North Idaho Beauty.
Angela F. Jul 2017
Beautiful lake location and dock! Only 15 minutes from Silverwood, restaurants, and groceries. And 20 minutes to Coeur D'alene lake. House has amazing windows, good AC, nice kitchen and two grills, plenty of kitchenware, and wifi. We didn't get phone service though.
Master is upstairs, rest of bedrooms on bottom, third level and lots of stairs, so keep in mind if traveling with small children or elderly. But lots of kid movies and even a record player!
We plan to stay again! Our kids loved it!
Jon M. Jun 2017
This home is beautiful!! The master suite upstairs is gorgeous, with a private living room and huge ensure bathroom. We had 2 families and we were able to put our infant in her playpen in the upstairs sitting room and our 3 year old on the pull out couch in the office space on the same level. The family we were staying with could use the 3 bedrooms and bathrooms downstairs giving everyone plenty of space. The kitchen!! Oh how we loved the kitchen, you could have 4 people cooking and prepping in there no problem, with two sinks it made preparing meals so easy. The kitchen is stocked with more utensils and cookware than I have at home, we loved it. The view is amazing, the tiered decks outside are stunning. This house is full of great amenities that anyone with children would love, anything we could possibly have needed for two families with a total of 4 children under the age of 5 was provided. The bathrooms are nice, the decor is very tasteful and suiting to the home and from the moment you walk in, you feel at home and comfortable. We loved this property and would gladly stay again. The only issue was parking, not a lot of space, we were just able to squeek our pickup truck into the garage, our friends have an SUV with a roof top storage and were not able to fit in the garage. Other than that we wouldn't change a thing.
Teri C. Jun 2017
This is a beautiful house. We felt right at home, very comfy and clean. You couldn't ask for better views to wake up to. The setting is gorgeous, and although one neighbor is just feet away it felt very private. I could sit on that deck all day and watch the birds and boat go by.
The location is great, right in between everything we wanted to see from, Coeur d'alene to Silverwood Theme Park, but far enough away from town to be very peaceful. The "country" directions to get to the house were spot on, no problems finding it.
There are many selections of board games to choose from, and the kids loved the Disney VHS movies in the little bedroom.
The layout was awkward at first, I didn't know to go up or down. The master is the top floor and where you enter from the garage. The middle is the living room, kitchen/dining, TV room and 1 bathroom. The bottom is the 3 other bedrooms, 1 bath and a large sitting area with older TV, but no satellite/cable.
One thing that could be a problem is if you had 9 people stay here, there are enough beds, but you couldn't sit together in 1 room. The living room seats 5, the TV room off the Living room sits maybe 4 and the dining room table sits 6 (there were no bar stools when we were there, but there were some in the garage in boxes).
But overall this is a great little gem on the lake. I would love to come back someday.
Joan C. May 2017
We thoroughly enjoyed this home. Lovely location on the lake yet it was nice and quiet there while we were renting. Lots of stairs, I would not recommend to families with small children - it is a three story home with staircases inside plus an additional staircase down to the water. More suitable for families with children old enough and responsible enough to be on their own.
Mark M. Nov 2016
Well built home well maintained. Nice views.
Chad J. Oct 2016
So short of small children and LOTS of stairs(three floors), this is a beautiful home and great views of the lake. Deer ALL OVER, and did catch a few crappie off the dock. The King Bed is in a loft and you can hear from the kitchen, but a great master sweet. Great decks on two floors and a grille. The TWO bed rooms on the bottom floor also have great views of the lake, and lots of windows. The other "bedroom" has no closet or windows, and has a bunk bed. The road coming in is a little narrow (cant fit two vehicles), but isn't very long to the house.
Cell service is IFFY (Verizon did OK), but WiFi is good.
Maureen N. Aug 2016
The house was great and deck views were amazing! We had 4 kids under 4 so the stairs got to be a little bit of an issue but the three different levels were great bc I could hang out with the babies downstairs when they woke up early without waking up the rest of the house. It wasn't to far from town even though the only time we left was via the boat we rented!
Corinne U. Jul 2016
Great place to stay. No problems with water pressure or using water to cook, brush teeth (though we did buy drinking water. ) Very comfortable for 2 families - 4 adults + 5 kids ages 6-11. Best parts were fishing off pier & roasting marshmallows/smores using fire pit on the deck.

Beautiful view.
David M. Jun 2016
Incredible house in beautiful location.
Randy B. May 2016
It was very pleasant stay, house is beautiful and lake front view is gorgeous
Gita Saedi K. May 2016
We loved the Starling House. A beautiful home with the most glorious, serene view. We will definitely come again.
K N. Apr 2016
This house had a beautiful lake view from every room.
Skip E. Mar 2016
great stay, no problem with water pressure in master.
Alison M. Mar 2016
We had a great stay at the Starling House. Two families, 4 kids, plenty of room to spread out. House has everything you need. Very clean and well maintained. Only negative would be no door to the master bed/bath and its next to the main entrance to the house.
Jon W. Aug 2015
Had a wonderful vacation at the Starling house with friends n family, by far the best kitchen accommodations I've experienced in a vacation rental. The dock was great to have with kids boating and swimming till late in the evening.
Richard B. Aug 2015
We stayed here for a family reunion in CDA , with 6 adults and 3 kids. The house was spacious and had great amenities. It felt like we were in a "Home" and not a rental. The views were spectacular and there was plenty of deck space for everyone to spread out and enjoy the day. This house is very private and gives the feeling of being the only house on the lake! We will defiantly stay here again on our next trip!!
Christina C. Jun 2015
This house was Amazing! We hated to leave. Being right on the lake was great! Kids loved jumping off the dock! The house was very clean and stocked with more than we needed! So much room for the whole gang! We made some amazing memories there and we can't wait to come back next summer❤️
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your thoughtful review with us. It is such a pleasure to read that your family made wonderful memories in this amazing home. We hope you'll come stay with us again! Thanks for choosing Vacasa!
Linda G. Jun 2015
This was such a great vacation for our family. The house was wonderful and the view was priceless. We will definitely be staying again in the future. Our family hated to leave. The house was beautiful and it had so much room.
Delona B. Sep 2014
The setting is splendid, and the rooms are arranged so windows capture the view from most of the spots in the house. It's air conditioned, which you don't always find, and has a nice boat doc. Kitchen was well provisioned. Very nice large deck. A lovely spot!
Jeffrey V. Aug 2014
Great for kids. Use the ceiling fan on the third floor to get a more even temperature throughout the house.
Manager response:
Thank you for this review and great suggestion to future guests about keeping the house cool during summer months. We look forward to seeing you again!
Steve T. Jun 2014
This spot was an excellent spot for my wife and me, especially after having had a less than fabulous experience earlier in the day. This home is beautifully maintained and has all the amenities you could want when traveling away from home. The views from each floor are spectacular. The decks outside are very nice, and the docks are a great place to relax and have coffee in the morning. Very quiet neighborhood and close to fun biking and hiking trails. We will definitely stay here again the next time we visit northern Idaho.
Barbra J. May 2014
My Husband and I with our grown children and their spouses stayed at this beautiful home first part of May. The home is gorgeous ! lots of room for everyone and place for the kids. the lake is beautiful, the deck and dock were wonderful to hang out. The beds are comfortable the kitchen well stocked, we would love to visit again
Manager response:
We are glad that you guys had the space and amenities you needed. We also love the deck and dock, (one of many great features of this house.) We will be glad to have you back again.
Darla B. May 2014
Just returned home from a wonderful stay at the Starling Lake House. Spacious and had everything you need for a good time. A lot of games and videos to use. GREAT kitchen with top of the line appliances. This place is a bargain!
