Currently living in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho (Sanders Beach area) within walking distance of the Lake and a city beach! We own a very small home and come and go frequently......snowbirds in the winter in NM.
CdA is a beautiful town, rich in outdoor activities, hiking/biking trails right down the street. We are just blocks from Hwy 90 and Hwy 95.
Parking will be on the street or beside my home (24' max). Use of slide outs and awnings depends......

An absolute gem!

I'd never been to northern Idaho before, but Coeur d'Alene is stunningly gorgeous! Joan's house is perfectly located, just a few blocks from Tubbs hill where you can hike and get great views of the water, a few blocks from the beach, and a few blocks from the downtown shops and bars. Don't miss this place!

Lovely couple in a great location

Such gracious hosts! We thoroughly enjoyed meeting them, visiting together and swapping travel stories. And made some new friends! Parking is a little tight so pay attention to the rig specs. We would definitely recommend this charming location in CD’A.

Great host i Beautiful Coeur d'Alene

My dogs & I overnighted here on Sept. 6th. There was another boondocker there, & my hosts moved their car to allow my rig to be parked off the street in their driveway. Joan allowed my dogs to stretch their legs in her backyard while we visited, and was very accommodating to any needs I had. It was a nice stay, & they are only a few blocks from beautiful downtown Coeur d'Alene. I will definitely contact them again next time I am in the area. Thanks Joan!

Great conversations

We spent a night with JamaJoan. Were met at the curb and helped park. We had a great time visiting these folks and they were very helpful in putting out locations in their lovely city.

Wonderful Stay

What a delight this well travelled, informative host is! As a bonus, she is located in a picture perfect postcard setting of C d'A. The Lake Drive is stunning and Roger's Hamburgers / Fries & Ice Cream was a nice treat for us. Thanks JJ, for your hospitality. Looking forward to crossing paths again. Love, peace and Good Winds to both of you. We stayed with JamaJoan on May 21, 2017

Courteous and a quiet place

I recommend JamaJoan for being so courteous, as we had to delay arrival by a few days as our camper had a broken door and had to be replaced. By the time we knew we were going to arrive, Jam Joan was leaving that day for her own road trip. JamaJoan allowed us to stay on her home site, just with connections thru phone conversations. It was much appreciated. Ruth and Steve

What a wonderful stay!

Jamajoan is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet! We stayed two days and really loved Coeur d'Alene. It is beautiful and Joan's house is well located to walking downtown and only a few blocks to a public beach. We really enjoyed our visit. Thanks again Joan for your hospitality! Hope to see you again.

Wonderful Hospitality

Our night at Joan's place was our first Boondockers Welcome (BW) engagement. And what a great introduction to BW. Joan and Robert were so welcoming to us we felt right at home. We had some great conversation with them which is one of the reasons I think we all RV - to meet new and interesting people, and we found that here at Joan's.

Joan made accommodations for us in her yard which made our set up convenient.

What a great first BW experience - Thanks Joan!!
