Fernan Lake VillageFernan Lake Village is a quaint enclave located on the northwest shore of Fernan Lake.  Downtown Coeur d'Alene's main street, Sherman Avenue, begins at the City Beach of Lake Coeur d'Alene on the west, and runs right into Fernan Lake Village at it's eastern end, just a couple of miles away. 

Fernan Lake Village is a small residential neighborhood of about 70 households.  It is interesting to note that although homes in Fernan Fernan Lake VillageLake Village have a Coeur d'Alene mailing address, the village is an incorporated town and not part of the city of Coeur d'Alene.  It elects its own mayor and city council.
