This property is on 160 forested acres. There are 3 beautifully furnished cabins and a very large 5 bedroom/6 bath main building. Your group will enjoy the perfect balance of private space and communal areas. Huge commercial kitchen! Great rec room! Beautiful screened porch! Hot tub!
Connect with family as you explore shady forests, open fields or rocky hillsides.Wildlife is abundant- you will almost certainly see deer, elk, hawks, bluebirds or wild turkeys, maybe even a moose! Enjoy evenings on the large screened porch or inside watching a movie by the fireplace. It's a short walk to your comfortable bed when it is time to turn in. The lodge operates part of the year as a destination recording studio, so the suites, cabins, and common areas are designed for a group of people to enjoy together comfortably for a week or more.
Cooking for large groups will be a pleasure in the commercial kitchen. There is ample refrigerator/freezer space, 3 ovens, char-broiler, and large griddle as well as a commercial dishwasher which cleans a load of dishes in under 3 minutes! The kitchen is well-stocked with large pots and pans and numerous serving dishes and warmers. Amenities include an ice machine and espresso maker.
The location is excellent! You'll turn off the highway and drive down a private, gated country road. Even though it is just a short distance from highway to property, you'll feel like you are a million miles from everything. The property is located between Sandpoint and Coeur d'Alene, two of the most popular tourist towns in North Idaho. We are less than 15 minutes from the Northwest's largest theme/water park, Silverwood. Also within minutes is the town of Bayview and Farragut State Park. This is a spectacular 4000 acre park at the south end of Lake Pend Oreille, the state's largest (43 miles long) lake. It's also the deepest (at 1,158 feet deep, there are only four deeper lakes in the nation). It's got terrific scenery, clean water, big fish, and a fascinating history. Picnic areas and swimming holes, boat rentals, fishing charters, Frisbee golf as well as a Naval Museum can all be found around Farragut and Bayview. 30 minutes south of the property is the beautiful resort town of Coeur d'Alene, and 30 minutes north is Sandpoint, home to Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort and the Sandpoint Music Festival. Both towns have antiquing, golfing, great restaurants, shopping and lots of wonderful summer and winter activities.
Your 7 night stay includes one free hour in the karaoke room. Contact us for rates for additional time, or to use your time for recording instead. The room has a stage with 4 mics, disco lights, a fog machine, a great sound system, a huge music and karaoke library, multiple video monitors for displaying the lyrics, floor monitors to hear yourself and an audio engineer and assistant to make sure everything runs smoothly. This room has so many uses! Dance, sing, listen to records, or have a family jam (we have instruments!).

About the owner: We've lived on this property for 20 years. We have a separate residence on the property which is near enough for us to lend a hand if you have questions, and far enough away that you'll never see us if you don't!
Why the Owner Chose Athol:
The area has so much to do! Great stuff for families. Skiing and snowmobiling in the winter. Fishing, wakeboarding and huckleberry picking in summer, and hunting in the fall. Both Coeur d'Alene and Sandpoint have thriving downtowns with unique shopping, antiquing, art galleries, restaurants and live music.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Well, 'country life' near a major theme park (Silverwood) is probably unique! And there's no doubt that music-making has been an especially unique part of our life out here! We have a fantastic time hosting bands from around the country who come here to make their albums in the recording studio.
