About Spirit Lake
Private Lake Community, Convenient to Spokane, Accessible to Boise

Spirit Lake is a private lake community located in Kootenai County, Idaho. It is named from the lake it borders.

This lake contains a top and average depth of 82 and 14 feet respectively, covers a total area of 1,606 acres and features over 12 miles of shoreline.

The community is convenient to Spokane, Washington at under a half-hour drive, as well as Boise, Idaho at just under two hours.

Surrounding Outdoor Recreation

The Spirit Lake community rests in a popular bucolic region of Northern Idaho. The region is teeming with outdoor recreational areas such as Coeur d'Alene, Colville, Saint Joe and Kaniksu National Forests.

Coeur d'Alene is the closest to the community. This renown national forest provides countless hours of recreation, including activities such as hiking, horseback riding, swimming, rock climbing and geocaching, to name a few.

Active Boating & Fishing Lake

The Spirit Lake community differs from that of other private lake communities in Northern Idaho, as it allows for the use of motorized boats on the waterfront. This is great news for water sport enthusiasts, as well as boaters of all ages.

However, this means that the noise levels at most times of the day are quite excessive. That being said, there are a number of no-wake areas that allow anglers the benefit of quiet waters.

Popular sport fish to be found in Spirit Lake include large-and smallmouth bass, chinook salmon, crappie and walleye.

The Perfect Place to Experience Lake Life

Whether you are looking to purchase a family home, a waterfront vacation property or a full-time retirement residence, Spirit Lake is an excellent choice for private lake real estate.
