Property description

There was never much gold found, but today the million dollar views of Lake Pend Oreille (Ponderay) and the wonderful mountain top atmosphere are the real gold here. Deer, Elk and Osprey, with the occasional Bald Eagle, are the closest neighbors to this eight acre private home. Hiking, wildlife and Mountain Biking all await you just out the front door on adjacent forest land with fire roads and established trail systems.

No long drives needed here for your favorite activities, the whole family can enjoy the private community beach just a few minutes away, then it's back to the house for a BBQ and fantastic sunset. All just part of another perfect day in North Idaho.

This home is all new inside and out, featuring a charming cabin style interior with plenty of wood accents. The master bath has a Jacuzzi jetted tub. The main living area features a gas fireplace style stove, no wood to chop or carry.A fully-equipped kitchen and laundry, as well as all the other amenities one would expect are included. The large downstairs family area features a pool table. We also now have an outdoor Jacuzzi.

This is a dedicated vacation property. As owners, we are also the closest neighbors, so we are available, should any need arise during your stay. Have a special request? Party planning, catering, large groups, etc, we host travelers from all around the world and are glad to help with your vacation planning. Anything we can do to make your stay a special one. We ask for no smoking indoors. Pets are ok with prior approval only and a deposit.

There is always something to do in Sandpoint with. We have some of the best hiking and Mountain biking anywhere. Directly from the property is access to: Gold Hill, Trail 3, and the Russ King Trail. For the hard core Mtb riders there is also 'The Connector', the 'NEW' connector, 'Gordon's trail' and some 'to be announced'. Some of this stuff is pretty well known, but much of it is only really known by the locals.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are a retired couple who purchased this property to use as a rental, we live 1/4 of mile from the property so it is easy to run over and help with any problems that arise. Gordon is 78 and still races motorcycles in Enduro's, we travel quite a bit and work as cooks for the US International Six Days, which is held in a different country every year. Our son also lives close by to help when we are gone.

Why the Owner Chose Sandpoint:
It is very secluded and has good access to hiking, mountain biking and a mile and half from the lake. Sometimes you might see Moose, Turnkeys, Deer and Elk on the property.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Remote but yet close enough to town.
