Super view, Lake Coeur d'Alene, in Harrison Idaho, main street

I can tell you that local lore tells that One Shot Charlie, Harrison's premier bartender and the namesake of the local watering hole, once lived in this house.
There were many other occupants since the house's construction around 1900: School superintendents, doctors, college professors and families of mill workers.
I can't vouch for any of it, but if you spend enough time in Harrison, Idaho, the lakeside town that was once the biggest community on the lake, sporting several sawmills, a theater and terraced walkways, and you talk to old timers and historians at the Crane Museum, you will invariable feel at home here, and learn tidbits of this town's past.
This house has an unrivaled view of the lake.
On a corner lot, the Trail of The Coeur d'Alene's bicycle and walking trail, and Lakefront Ave. is the only thing that stands between the porch and the best sunsets in Idaho.
It is a 4 bedroom 1 bath house, two stories with a kitchen, family room and a woodstove for heat.
The home is built on rock and wood beams, so there is no traditional foundation, but the present one has lasted more than a century and feels sound underfoot.
The home is used as a family summer retreat, in this summer family-oriented resort community.
Owners are asking $139,000.
Come take a look.
