This was a beautiful lodge in a beautiful environment. It was just stunning with all the windows. Magnificent views of huge pine trees and secluded enough not to have noisy neighbors. My boyfriend and I went there looking for snow, and we found it. We are from the dessert, so every year we plan a vacation in the snow. Cheney is about 30 minutes south of Spokane, which was perfect. We flew into Spokane, rented a car and ended up driving to Couer d'Alene for the day.
The Jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom was great. The mattresses all had their own issues, and I would suggest bringing your own pillow, if possible. Also, bring some DVD's, While they do have a lot of VHS tapes, we found the VCR player on the mail floor unable to operate. The downstairs VCR player does play VHS tapes though.
This place is awesome for a family with kids. They have a bedroom on the main floor, a master bedroom upstairs, and 3 bedrooms downstairs, sleeping a total of 10 people. I believe there is also a sofa bed too. The beds all have their own issues, just be aware.
If you're in the area, you have to go to the Leverfe Bakery and Café, in Medical Lakes (about 20 minutes away). It's a small, family owned bakery that bakes all their desserts fresh. They have the best pull-a-part bread, huge Cinnamon rolls, best German sausage, French toast, and much, much, more.
Overall, I would suggest this place for a family vacation.
