Our Dover Bay Retreat air conditioned condo provides guests with a quiet, sunny, immaculately clean, spacious, smoke free and tastefully furnished condo surrounded by acres of pristine wetlands and nine miles of pet friendly walking trails. If you enjoy nature, you'll love our location.
Large windows show the active Walston pond and the Cabinet and Selkirk Mountains.
Cathedral ceilings add to the spaciousness of the 1340 square feet of comfortable, relaxing indoor living space.
We are pet friendly and do not charge a pet fee. Pets are part of the family, and our many repeat guests are responsible pet owners as well as non pet owners who love our private, relaxing, well furnished and reasonably priced condominium.
Sandpoint is one of the nation's most interesting, beautiful small towns. You and your family can walk, bike, or drive into town to enjoy all that it has to offer, but when you're ready to come home for the night you'll enjoy quiet nights in a planned residential wetlands community where cars drive slowly and people passing by wave at one another. Yes we have mosquitoes in the summer; we also have deer, beaver, osprey, great blue heron, muskrat, and the occasional moose (and a bear if you're lucky enough to see--I've never seen one in Dover).
Or stay in Dover--rent a kayak from the walking-distance marina and explore the miles of wetlands, river, and lake; rent a boat or bring your own and keep it at the Dover Bay marina; enjoy a fabulous night out at the restaurant Dish with its waterfront outside dining (within walking distance from our condo). Enjoy a leisurely walk along one of the many trails following the wetlands, waterfront park, and river. Don't be surprised if you see blue herons, beaver, deer, osprey, bald eagles, and even an occasional moose.
Dover Bay is a 285-acre planned community, over half of which is set aside as undeveloped open space. It's private and quiet but not isolated.
We take pride in providing our guests with nearly everything they need to relax, cook gourmet meals, and spend quality family time together. And family to us includes pets. As pet owners ourselves, we know that responsible pet owners make sure their pets are healthy, up-to-date on shots, altered, and well behaved, which is why we do not require a separate pet fee. People who love and travel with their pets are, in our experience, the best guests. In over eight years of renting to pet owners, we’ve never once had an issue with a guest and his or her pet, which is why we also attract guests who do not travel with their pets as well. No one—pet owners or not—wants to stay in a home that reeks of pee, is infested with fleas, or shows the wear and tear of irresponsible pet owners.

*Brand new carpet (early July 2014)
*New 50 inch flat screen smart television (Jan 2015)
