Neighborhood Spotlight: Liberty Lake


Known for – big surprise here – its gorgeous lake and waterfront properties, Liberty Lake is right on the Idaho border and home to about 8,000 people. Liberty Lake was officially incorporated back in 2001. There are plenty of houses along the lake that were built in the 70s, but a majority of homes in the Liberty Lake area were built in the 90s and early 2000s. Homes are still going up, with lots of new construction happening now. Homes on the lake range from about $300,000 to a $1.5 million+. If you’re hoping to live on the lake, without having a long commute, Liberty Lake is ideal. It’s only about a 20 minute drive to downtown Spokane.

Top Spots

  • Top restaurant goes to Hay J’s…hands down. They serve up American fare, featuring seafood and beef. Their seafood chowder is phenomenal!
  • And top activity? That goes to Mica Moon Zip Tours. This 2 and a half hour activity starts at the reception area in downtown Liberty Lake. Then you take a shuttle about 15 minutes away to property on Mica Peak, where you’ll ride a UTV, go on two hikes and 8 zip lines. You’ll go through forest glens, across a valley, over a stream, and near moonshine camps where “Mica Moon” moonshine was produced during prohibition.
  • Top coffee shop goes to The Well coffeehouse and pub. They feature live music at times and make a mean espresso.


Students living in Liberty Lake usually head to Liberty Lake Elementary. Then they’re off to Greenacres and Central Valley High School. Follow the links below to get more information about those schools’ statistics:

I mean really…does it get much better than this gorgeous 4,200 square foot home!? This breathtaking home nestled on the hillside overlooks Liberty Lake and Mica Peak. It’s a 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom home that includes 100+ feet of prime waterfront…because what good is a lake if you can’t play in it!?




Another highlight of Liberty Lake (besides the water) is the immaculate Liberty Lake Golf Course. This impressive home sits right on the 16th hole of the course and is outfitted with floor-to-ceiling windows. The home is almost 4,000 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. You won’t miss out on the view of the lake though: both decks have peek-a-boo views of the lake.
