Priest Lake, Idaho

Following our stay in Sun Valley, we made the trek to Northern Idaho, to a sweet little gem of a place called Priest Lake.  We’ve heard about this dreamland for years from our dear friends, the Kahn family, as they spend time there every summer.  When we started plotting our route for this trip, we took a stab in the dark that a rendezvous in Priest Lake could be a reality.  Katie and Jordan were able to swing some vacation time to make it happen, and we are so grateful that they did.

We stayed on Katie’s parents property, right on the edge of Priest Lake.  It was GORGEOUS, and we can now see why their family loves this place so much.  From kayaking, paddle boarding, and fishing, to fun trips out in the boat, tubing, cocktails at Elkins, huckleberry picking, corn hole, and lakefront hikes, our time together was such a lifeline.  We are so grateful for the special time together in this magical place.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Kahn Family!

Off on a little boat cruise to see the lake...





And, just like that, the 12 1/2 hour drive was a distant memory...

Fishing inside the boathouse...

Hayden was OBSESSED with fishing on our stay.  Katie's dad, Steve, so generously took him out several times and was the SWEETEST with him.
Heading out for some tubing...


The kids LOVED tubing!  Brady and Byron, the first to go...

 Fabulous lunch at Elkin's...

The most INCREDIBLE huckleberry mojitos...

 Justin's pulled pork "appetizer" nachos.  LOL.
 Ride back home.  It started POURING on us, and we were all huddled under towels as the wind and rain pelted us.  Short stop to rescue Justin's hat on the way - Grace jumped in to get it, bless her heart!  The kids LOVED the adventure!

 Games with the kiddos...

 Peeler beads...
 Morning huckleberry picking.  We had never picked, nor really seen, huckleberries before.  What fun we had, and clearly Mrs. Kahn is a professional!









 Some of the haul.  Katie made a huckleberry crisp that night with our berries, and it was UNREAL.
 Fishing at the dock...






 Afternoon hike along the lake...





 LOVE them so much.



 Corn hole before dinner...
