Fernan Lake VillageFernan Lake Village is a quaint enclave located on the northwest shore of Fernan Lake.  Downtown Coeur d'Alene's main street, Sherman Avenue, begins at the City Beach of Lake Coeur d'Alene on the west, and runs right into Fernan Lake Village at it's eastern end, just a couple of miles away. 

Fernan Lake Village is a small residential neighborhood of about 70 households.  It is interesting to note that although homes in Fernan Fernan Lake VillageLake Village have a Coeur d'Alene mailing address, the village is an incorporated town and not part of the city of Coeur d'Alene.  It elects its own mayor and city council.

The lakeside neighborhood of Fernan Lake Village was developed in the 1950's.  The homes along the waterfront are valued in the million dollar range.  The neighborhood has a pleasant mix of homes, with values ranging from the high $200,000's and up.  Homes don't often come on the market in Fernan Lake Village.  When one does, it may Fernan Lake Villageprovide an opportunity for an ambitious homeowner to update and personalize it into their dream home.  Other homes have already been beautifully remodeled and updated with modern fixtures and materials.

Timbered mountains make a beautiful backdrop in Fernan Lake Village.  Kootenai County maintains a boat launch and park within the village.  It's a popular spot Fernan Lake Villagefor locals to come and play, year around.  Fishing is reported to be very good with pike, bass, crappie, gill, perch, bullheads, kokanee, perch and carp. The lake freezes over most winters and becomes a popular spot for ice fishing as well as ice skating.  

Fernan Lake Village, in downtown Coeur d'Alene, Idaho is just a stone's throw to both I-90, and scenic Coeur d'Alene Lake Drive.  One of the draws to this beloved enclave is that it is so conveniently located.  And although Coeur d'Alene is a bustling tourist destination in the summer, Fernan Lake Village remains off the beaten tourist track.
