Sandpoint cabin description

Its Spring and Summertime in DOVER BAYand SANDPOINT. These towns is amazing in all seasons but the Spring and Summer are very special. The lake and the area come alive with spring and summer activities that you will enjoy.
BOTH SPRING and SUMMER ARE FANTASTIC WITH THE LAKE AND BEAUTIFUL WEATHER. BOATING, SWIMMING, WATERSKI, WAKEBOARD, CRUISING, HIKING OR JUST GOING TO TOWN AND SHOPPING/VISITING WITH THE SANDPOINT FRIENDLY RESIDENTS. DRIVE UP TO WATER RESTAURANTS, DOCK AND EAT. HIKING, BIRD WATCHING, BICYCLING. WHATEVER YOU WANT TO DO IT IS POSSIBLE IN THE Spring and Summer. BEAUTIFUL LAKE Pend Orielle is full of exciting things to do. YOU WILL CREATE FAMILY MEMORIES THAT ARE UNPARALLELLED. JUST WAIT.

Soon comes the Fall:
THE FALL IS VERY BEAUTIFUL WITH THE LEAVES CHANGING AND THE COOLER WEATHER STARTING TO SET IN. THE WINTER IS LIKE CHRISTMAS LAND WITH INCREDIBLE SNOW, SLEDDING, SNOWSHOEING, HIKING, PHOTOGRAPHY AND OF COURSE, SCHWEITZER RESORT. IF YOU HAVENT SKIIED SCHWEITZER THEN YOU HAVENT LIVED. THIS MOUNTAIN, WHICH IS ALWAYS BEING EXPANDED, IS FANTASTIC. SELDOM ARE THERE ANY LINES. THE SKIING IS GREAT AND THE VIEWS ARE UNMATCHED. LOOK OVER BEAUTIFUL LAKE PEND ORIELLE WHILE YOU SKI.

Incredible cabin 150 yards off of the Lake in famous Dover Bay, Lake Pend Orielle. Only 6 miles to Schweitzer Ski Resort. Fantastic snow this year. This cabin is great because you are a hop and skip away from downtown Sandpoint and an easy and short drive to Schweitzer. Just went skiing there and the snow is incredible.

This four bedroom (within 150+ yards of Lake Pend Orielle and right next to one of the most fun inlets of Lake Pend Orielle) vacation home in the new Dover Bay development,Idaho near Sandpoint, Idaho is the perfect vacation site for a family that wants to take in a lot of the outdoors and create memories with their family. Great fishing in this outlet. I have the poles in the cabin or you can bring your own. Try fishiing off of the Dover Bay marina docks and catch bass and trout. We caught many this last trip.

Our family resides in Southern California and began looking for the perfect outdoors getaway and after years of research we landed in Dover Bay, Idaho.

Dover Bay and Sandpoint are the absolute coolest small towns. They used to be primarily a logging town which has converted to a visitors paradise but still retains that small town feel and pride.

This area of the country has everything you can imagine to keep yourself and your children busy. There are endless trails in the Dover Bay development. Biking, hiking, bird watching, sightseeing and all water related activities are at your finger tips. Make certain you bring a camera as you will see some great wildlife moments in this area with your family. Early morning and evening walks along the many paths of Dover Bay and Sandpoint are a must. A couple of walks into town will give you all of the exercize you need while staying in the cabin. And now the lake activities start...

The Lake is beautiful and is over 45 miles long. This large lake with feeding rivers is a boater's fantasy lake. Bald eagles and other rare birds can be seen regularly on this lake. The local wildlife includes beaver, rabbit, squirrels, elk, mule deer, whitetail deer, turkeys, pheasant, bear, moose, fishers, martens, raccoons and many other wild animals rarely seen anywhere else. Migratory birds like various breeds of ducks and geese are all over the area. You can spot many heron that frequent the lake among tons of other birds that I don't recognize. Bring your binoculars and cameras.

In addition to the fantastic mammal life there is some of the best fishing in the country. The lake has personal access for boaters wanting to hook up with that lunker lake trout or there are several local charters that you can contact and work out a day of fishing. There is local fly fishing, lake fishing, stream fishing with many different varieties of fish.


There is a large gas barbeque on the 900+ square foot wrap porch for your use. What a great place to hang out with the family and enjoy a meal or conversation. Plenty of seating on the porch for you and your family.

The home is internet equipped. The home has a television in every room including three flat screen TV's for your ultimate viewing. All of the TV's are equipped with cable. There are beds for 10 but we also have a few floor mats for kids or adults to sleep on if necessary. This house can also have someone sleep on the couch if necessary. If needed, we can bring in some add'l mats. The house is situated in a manner that allows the people in the family room to enjoy themselves without the noise of the kids upstairs. Very well separated.

This home was designed as our home and not as a rental. We have furnished with beautiful country furniture and all of the amenities you can possibly imagine. For this reason we ask all renters to treat the cabin as if it were their home and leave in the same condition as they found it. This is one of the only 4 bedroom, fully furnished rentals in this direct area, so please book early and enjoy.

I actually start to feel ill when I am two (2) days away from having to leave. Our family loves Idaho. It is wide open beauty. The best part of Sandpoint and Dover Bay is the People that live and work here. You will leave this place with new lifetime friends. Get out and talk to people.

                  This is one of the best areas of the country for photography, fishing and hunting, beautiful mountain views, close to lake for all lake-related activities. Awesome lake with fantastic mountain views. Lots of wildlife trails and scenery. Clean air that will keep you coming back for more. Great getaway with your family because you can experience nature together. Photographers paradise. Hikers paradise. The town is so cool because it is still a small town with everything you need. By the end of your time here, you will know the merchants names and get to know some great people.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: Picture of me with my family sledding on a local hill. Everyone that has stayed at this home in the wooded area of Dover Bay has had a blast. It is the perfect setting and home for great family fun. Our family loves it up here. I would move here if we could.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sandpoint:
                  This was an easy decision. If you want to get a huge rush of the outdoors and still have a small quaint town to visit, your choices are limited. In addition, we wanted a location that was just as desired for the winter as it was for the summer. Schweitzer Ski Resort is amazing with timberland skiing and no/little lines. The mountain is amazing and the Lake Pend Orielle is extremely nice. Big lake with lots of little towns and destinations around. A photographer or outdoorsman's dream. This is why, EASY.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Dover Point and Sandpoint - Quaint little town with remarkable restaurants and shops. Great people. Bike Trails. walking trails. The best lake in the world, Lake Pend Orielle. Schweitzer Ski Resort is incredible. Lake Priest and Cor de Alene are also nice. Great fishing. kayaking. hiking. biking. Clean air and water. Photography opps with all types of mammals and birds. Last of the wilderness. This is much like Lake Tahoe except set in a very natural wilderness that you just cannot find anymore. It is INCREDIBLE. Tahoe has all of the traffic and polluction, etc. Sandpoint and this general area of the country has all of the undisturbed nature. The farther north you go, the more remote and natural it becomes. We've had moose on the property, bald eagles and osprey are abundant. The deer run across the property and these are the small things that mean the most to us.
