                  Owner info

                  About the owner: We are the Worley family! Jill, Tim, Tracy, and Kimber. The photo of us is at Myrtle Falls near Bonners Ferry, Idaho. Any activity outdoors makes our hearts sing with delight. Hiking, running, golfing, camping, skiing (down hill and cross), snow shoeing, traveling, gardening, and border collie antics. 20 Acre Woods has brought and continues to bring joy and blessings to our life. Our vocations take us away from North Idaho. 20 Acre Woods offers a wonderful retreat for couples and families. We thought of ways of how to share 20 Acre Woods and VRBO is a natural fit for us to give others the warmth of 20 Acre Woods. 20 Acre Woods is the name of our property. When we found the property in 2007 the feel, smell, and look reminded us of what 100 Acre Woods may be like in Christopher Robbins world. We have stayed in other owners VRBO and has always been an excellent experience. Cheers to new adventures and hope we can offer you a comfortable place to land for your adventures! Tim is a Montana native, born and raised in Bozeman. He is a graduate of Montana State University (Bobcat), and has a Masters from Oregon State University (Beaver). Tracy is an Idaho native, born and raised in Boise. She attended Boise State University (Bronco), and University of Phoenix.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sandpoint:
                  20 Acre Woods is a natural fit for our desire to be close to the woods and town. 'This property is 'romantic' to me, in the winter we snow-shoe or ski right off the back deck making our own tracks. In the summer the hammock and porch swing are our favorite resting spots(Tracy).' The 360 view of the Cabinet and Selkirk Mountain Ranges bring grace and peace to even the most restless who visit us. And this is what we desire for you.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We love every square inch of 20 Acre Woods. The wrap around porch lends shelter from the snow and sun. In the warmer months the front porch is a wonderful spot to sip coffee and read the paper. There is no season we are not using the deck. 20 Acre Woods winter months we can snowmobile, snow shoe, and ski right from the house. Sledding? We have our own sled hill with a fire barrel close by and the hill can be lit with lanterns for late afternoon fun. 20 Acre Woods Summer months we can hike, run, mountain bike, and swim at our Pack River swim hole. Justin has started some wicked awesome mountain bike trails from the house. Each bedroom offers a haven of rest, warmth, and mountain views. The main living space offers full amenities from leather couches, rocking chairs, full dining table, kitchen, and all the windows offer the same spectacular mountain views. The property also has a Carriage House where we have year-round care-takers for the property. Privacy is our utmost wish and desire for you and the care-takers will be a phone call away to ensure your stay is comfortable, safe, and memorable. ***Meet the Care-Takers: Justin and Brooke are newlyweds and also have a strong passion for everything outdoors! They both are committed to making your stay the best it can be.
