This beautiful slice of heaven sits on 1/2 an acre in St. Charles, just off the main highway. It is minutes from the North Shore beach (Bear Lake State Park).
Private country setting on 1/2 acre of pasture land close to the North Beach and scrumptious raspberry shakes. View of the lake from wrap around porch and decks. Imagine afternoon barbecue after a day at the beach, hike to Bloomington Lake, or exploring Minnetonka Caves. All of these within minutes drive from this cute farmhouse/cabin.
Guests have full access to kitchen, grill, and property. Make yourself at home and enjoy the peace and quiet. Or, play some volleyball, croquet, lawn frisbee or whatever you conjure up for your stay in our "little slice of Idaho Heaven".

I am a banker in Wenatchee, WA. Married 35 years to my hubby and we have two children (daughter and son) and two grandchildren (Liam 2 1/2 and Liv 1, who we love more than anything!!). Our favorite travel destinations are anywhere warm, usually on a beach or by a pool, probably Hawaii or any other tropical destination. We love to go on cruises too. We've taken 3 trips to Sandal's with our friends: St. Lucia, Montego Bay Jamaica, and most recently Grenada and South Africa. We also love to go to movies too when we are home or just hang out with friends and family.
We decided to share our property in St. Charles with guests beginning in June 2016. We initially purchased the lot in 2006 with our daughter and son-in-law. They decided to build the house there in 2010 upon returning to the US from a 3 year stay in Brisbane, Australia. From there, we partnered with them to get the house built first in 2010 and the garage was completed in Summer of 2012. They built their lives in Bear Lake for the next 5 years working at Beaver Mountain Ski Resort, Minnetonka Caves, Zions Bank (in Montpellier) and the City of Paris (maintenance). They loved living in this community, made many strong friendships, and even had their first child there at Bear Lake Memorial Hospital. But, after 5 years, and being pregnant with baby #2 (our granddaughter, Liv), they decided to move to Washington to be close to us in the Summer of 2015.
We have kept the home as our second home and decided to share it with other vacationers on occasion who love the quaintness of St. Charles and the unique North Beach area where you can walk out into the lake for a mile.
