About Us

Have you ever seen something so beautiful, or had an experience so joyful, you wished everyone you love could experience it too?  That’s how we feel everyday about living in North Idaho.

For the Love of Idaho is a heartfelt, 4-Season blog started by Vacation Rental Authority founder Cheryl Lantz. Her passion for the area’s water, snow, trees, wildlife and limitless adventure led her to share the many experiences available from Coeur d’Alene to Sandpoint, Post Falls to Hayden with fellow enthusiasts.

The team at Vacation Rental Authority expands on Lantz’s love of Idaho, sharing our favorite activities, restaurants and local flavor. We’ve found the best way to see the sites is by tapping into the experience and knowledge of friendly locals, so that is exactly what we are in business to do.

Lantz explains, “If you love the outdoors, you simply must find your way to North Idaho.  See for yourself what all the fuss is about! You will find awe inspiring views and unlimited possibilities for fun, relaxation, connection and inspiration.”

At Vacation Rental Authority, we match you with the ideal vacation home for your stay with friends or family.  (Have business in mind?  We have corporate rentals and strategic planning retreat locations that are out of this world!)

Once you have a memory-making place to stay, we take our guest services to the next level at no cost to you.  Our local experts answer your questions and point you to the best hiking, biking, skiing or swimming spots in the area.

Want a private boat tour of Lake Coeur d’Alene?  No problem.  Need ski passes for Schweitzer, 49 Degrees or Silver Mountain?  We have them. Bike rentals? Paddle boards? Photographer for unforgettable family photos? Done. Our contact list is long and we take care of as much (or as little) as you like.

This blog is just the tip of the iceberg – we have an infinite number of resources available for you, including our Travelers Newsletter “Love of Idaho”.

Let us know when you’re planning to come for a visit, and get the inside scoop of where to stay, what to do and where to go!  As longtime lovers of Idaho, we advocate for her positive reputation, and hope to share her four seasons of beauty and fun with you soon.  Each time you visit can be the experience of a lifetime, and we’re here to help make that happen…for the love of Idaho!
