Bottle Bay house description
Your Own Private Idaho – 240 feet of private, pebble beach with some round glacier deposited rock shoreline in a park live environment on Lake Pend d Oreille. This vacation home is the perfect place for making memories with friends and family.
Enjoy spending your day basking in the sun on the dock, swimming, boating, water skiing and playing in the water. At only 35 feet deep, Bottle Bay is one of the warmest bays on the lake making it the perfect place for all water sports. Dock your boat at either of the two (2) docks while playing with the water toys that are provided…..don’t forget to take the canoe out for a spin around the bay.
Time for lunch? Bring your picnic to the grassy shores edge and enjoy eating at one of the waterside tables while watching eagles and ospreys fish for their days catch. After lunch might be the perfect time for a siesta while the kids continue to frolic in the lake.
Tired of being in the sun? Enjoy the shade or read a book. Stop to enjoy the views of the lake and mountains beyond, sitting on one of the benches nestled in the trees or skip a flat rock across the waters
As the afternoon unfolds, wander to the large Cabin deck and refresh yourself with a cold beverage, glass of wine and snack. Kick up your feet and watch the sun play on the water and the Canada Geese paddle by.
Dinner time! It’s your choice…..dine at either the Chalet or Cabin deck…..beautiful views await you as you feast on the sunset. BBQ’s are provided at both locations.
As night falls, star gazing is spectacular. Keep your eyes open for the possible Northern Lights dancing across the sky. The Persieds meteor shower is around August 8-12 and the docks are the perfect spot to watch
For the young and young at heart, now is the perfect time to stroll back down to the shoreline to share stories of the day and roast marshmallows around the campfire.
The Chalet is a short walk up the hill and has a light and airy full kitchen which opens to the living room and deck. The four (4) bedrooms provide a variety of sleeping options. Two (2) of the bathrooms are located on the main level of the home; while one (1) bath and laundry are on the upper floor. The home is fully furnished to meet your every need.
The two (2) bedroom, one (1) bathroom Cabin is located 40 feet from the shoreline. With a casual feeling, the kitchenette opens to the dining and living area.
Bottle Bay Resort Marina is a short walk or boat ride away and offers dining, cocktails, moorage, gas dock, boat rentals and boat launch. The resort is renowned for its huckleberry margaritas and lemonade!!
Make certain you don’t forget to spend time exploring Sandpoint. A 15 minute boat ride or 30 minute car ride will place you in the heart of town where you will find exceptional dining, shopping, antiquing and a variety of other activities. Tennis anyone? City Beach has several tennis courts, public beaches, horseshoe pits, basketball & volleyball courts, boat launches and a play ground for young children.
Save time to head up to Schweitzer Mountain Resort. Incredible views and vistas await you as you ride up the chair lift. There is plenty to do on the mountain with hiking, biking, casual dining, huckleberry picking and more. Don’t forget to call ahead to see what the featured entertainment is.
The owners live near the property and are available to answer any questions that you may have about Sandpoint and the surrounding areas. The 2013 summer season is booking quickly; we look forward to hearing from you soon.

A Brilliant Bottle Bay Chalet Experience!
A Brilliant Bottle Bay Chalet Experience!
Snow draped mountains, peaceful silence, beautiful cedars surrounding the Lake House (Chalet), and clear view of a Bottle Bay, created a serenity that filled the air and offered a perfect recipe for a our cozy Thanksgiving stay. We highly recommend you work this one into your vacation plans! Our stay during the Thanksgiving Holiday 2011 was a wonderfully enjoyable experience made possible by the lovely property, warm Lake House and kind owners. They were extremely helpful and went out of their way to ensure our comfort even though the property was perfectly equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay, with a spectacular view of Bottle Bay and easy access to the 2 boat docks and water. They were open and friendly, sharing tales of adventures through time (which we thoroughly enjoyed), and offered a variety of educational DVD's for our pleasure. The Lake House was immaculate, very clean and tidy. There was ample room and could easily accommodate multiple families or groups such as Yoga Retreats etc. Though we prepared most of our own meals in the fully equipped and functional kitchen, we did see several dining options in nearby Sandpoint. We've stayed in numerous B & Bs, Lodges and Cabins over the years, but this one was crème d' la crème! We have fond memories of the beauty of the land, coziness of the Lake House, and wonderful conversations that will last a lifetime. We will definitely return and look forward to taking advantage of the convenient boat docks for fishing, sun bathing on a warm day, and boating at night to enjoy the glorious Night Sky and Cosmos!

Year Purchased: 1995
About: The owners Jack, a retired geologist, and Diana, retired historian, have lived on this property since 1995. Nowadays they spend about half of their time here and the remainder with family or traveling in foreign countries (the children are grown and on their own). Jack originally purchased the property in 1980 after spending many years vacationing on the lake when he lived in Spokane. They both love the pristine quality of the Lake water and surrounding forests for hiking as well as the exhilarating boating experiences that can take one nearly 30 miles down the lake or just a short boat ride to the beautiful town of Sandpoint. Since geology is Jack's passion he can tell anyone about the fantastic Missoula floods that sculpted the mountains and valleys of this area all the way to the Pacific Ocean. This is an astounding story of a gigantic flood that took geologist J. Harlin Bretz 40 years to convince his peers that such an event happened. Diana loves to ride her 'comfort' bike on the roads in the area visiting other nearby Bays to dip her toes in the water and just enjoying looking at the verdant countryside fields and pastures. Both like to bird watch and listen for the whistle calls of bald eagles and osprey that often perch high in the pine trees on the property while fishing. Many a youngster has also caught their first fish off the dock. The lake provides a convient flyway for swans, canada geese, various resident woodpeckers, hawks, eagles, ravens, coots, turkeys, gulls and other water and song birds. Moose, Elk, beaver, and abundant deer occasionally frequent the neighborhood. Since astronomy is another favorite pastime of the two, they have spent many a night star gazing through scopes at the bright night time sky looking for one of many meteor showers or northern lights. The two have really enjoyed having friends stay with them and making new friends with those who have rented their vacation houses over the years.
