Sandpoint house description

Homeaway auto quote does not work great on pricing, so e mail or call me to get a live person for help.
This home does not show correctly in maps
THIS POPULAR HOME BOOKS FULL EVERY SUMMER.
2015 IS OPEN FOR BOOKING FINALLY
Homeaway rates sometimes 'auto quote' wrong, so e mail or call me for details.
Rates and clng chg may vary depending on group sizes
I also have 2 other homes on Homeaway # 930048 that will sleep 2-20 on the water, and # 220671 that sleeps to 14 with a beach a 3 minute walk from the back deck. I will be adding a home that sleeps 6 as well.

We Will Try To Accommodate Your Dates And Partial Weeks If It Works Out.
Your private waterfront retreat has arrived. 6 bedroom, 3 bath, 5100 sq feet of vacation paradise. This home is private 5.92 acres, cozy, yet large, has a pool table, lots of rooms to play poker, cards, board games, hike the property, read, watch movies, sip hot chocolate, or drive to Schweitzer to ski (approx 30 easy miles )and town to dine (Sandpoint and Priest River are close) Horse sleigh rides are a mile up the road, Schweitzer discount passes are avail, call for info. The sand is on the beach. There is a volleyball net avail , and we have opened up an area of trees to give another 60 feet of lawn We have boat rentals, sea doo rentals. Room to pitch tents or horseshoes, and a firepit when season permits

Family reunions and getaways: This home is well built, clean, and comfortable. Come in winter or summer to this big, 5,100 square-foot home. Don't let the rates scare you; it's a deal when divided among a group desiring to enjoy private, luxury, river acreage.
Situated in a park like setting with a flat lawn to the water, this home is perfect for family vacations, and family reunions. Group sizes may affect rates. We welcome small groups, as well.
The 220 feet of waterfront and sandy beaches are great for kids. The beach opens into the great Pend Oreille River. There is boat beaching right on the property. The waterfront has some shallow parts that the kids have a blast paddleboating around in. We provide a couple of free paddleboats with rental. The home's private vast water area shelters the waves and boats on the main part of the river, but it does not block your grand view of everything.
Enjoy the river views and play volleyball, barbecue or sunbathe.

Take a walk or jog up and back on the six acres of private road -- amidst pine trees, lawn, and pastures. Pick a fresh apple or cherry in season during your walk. Take a photo of that pesky raccoon that visits. Moose, deer, and bear have been known to mosey through the neighborhood.

Picnic tables, a deck, a canopy for those hot days by the water, barbecues, dishes, and utensils are all here!
If you like camping without the interference of a close camper, bring a few tents. While mom and dad sleep in the cozy master bedroom overlooking the tents and river, kids can enjoy outdoor sleeping.
There is a large hot tub on the deck; so you can watch your friends water-ski from one angle, and look into the house to see who's winning a game of pool from the other angle.
On the main floor, of the 2 floors, there is a large kitchen which has a casual dining area. This adjoins the connected dining and living room.

Here we have a pool table, TV, huge sofa that is beyond large and comfortable, a fireplace, a more formal dining table, and a sofa and love seat. On the main floor as well, we have a bathroom, laundry room and newly added bedroom.
Our upstairs features mostly sleeping areas. The Master hails a King bed, and the adjoining 440 Sq. ft. of master has a sitting room, fireplace and bathroom. Next we have a large bedroom with 2 Queen beds. A normal sized bedroom offers a Queen bed. The kiddie Room, which adults can use as well, has 6 twin beds and a queen, and even room to play games. It should be a favorite. The next bedroom has a queen bed, and a king.
Downstairs, we decided to add another bedroom, to make a total of 6. This room will has a queen bed, and is great for those who don't want to climb the stairs. The home is just 18 miles from the heart of Sandpoint, and 6 miles from the town of Priest River and is worth the easy drive.
This is a great home, there are no granite countertops, but most people enjoy the views, waterfront, snow and home just as it is.
If you do not like wildlife, do not come to Idaho. I had a whiney guest pout because a flock of geese landed on the lawn.....we mowed after them, but geese land everywhere, city beach, 5 million dollar homes, Coeur D Alene. If you want a CITY, go to a big concrete city.
