Sandpoint cottage description

Sunlight streams through the many windows in this clean, comfortable, attractively decorated, four bedroom (+ loft), two bath home that is perfect for family vacations. Quality linens, dishes, furnishings and supplies abound, there are no hand me downs in this well stocked cottage! The large fenced backyard and deck is a safe place for kids and pets so you can relax under the huge willow tree or barbecue while the children and pets play in safety. Or sit out on the front porch and chat with the friendly neighbors. In the winter moose have been seen walking down the sidewalk in front of the house and 'pruning' the shrubs in the backyard!

This desirable Lake Street home is located on a corner lot in the heart of Sandpoint. The house is within walking distance to all the great restaurants, the farmers market, entertainment and shopping in downtown Sandpoint. A large health food grocery store is just a block away. A short five block walk to swimming and sunning on the Lake at City Beach! Or use the bikes that come with the rental.

Sandpoint lies on the shores of Idaho’s largest lake, the 43 mile-long Lake Pend Oreille; it’s surrounded by mountains and in 2011 it was named the nation’s “Most Beautiful Small Town” by Rand McNally and USA Today. It’s a true year-round destination with winter sports and summer fun.

                        I thought this looked like a cute place to stay, but it far exceeded our expectations. A group of us stayed here so we could attend a wedding several months ago. We brought two babies. The place was so clean and cute and full of sunlight. The owners have decorated it so nicely--it made me wish I lived there. The beds were luxurious and our babies slept peacefully. Despite being in a residential area, it's within walking distance to some great restaurants and bars. We definitely want to come back and stay longer. The owner I talked with was so kind and wonderful to us.

                        This is a very nice place to stay in Sandpoint. It's clean, comfortable and well located. It also has a very good kitchen if you plan to cook. Just make sure you ask about the cleaning fee which wasn't listed on the VRBO page.

                        We stayed a week in the Lake Street Cottage in May as our son was getting married. My sister and husband from RI and my son, wife and grandson from California also stayed with us very comfortably. It was so nice to have a home to stay in during the festivities. The house is amazing and the owners have thought of everything to make you feel at home. The decor, comfortable beds, bikes, housewares in the kitchen have been thoughtfully planned to make your stay pleasant. We loved the back porch and the big tree and of course we had great weather. I loved the upstairs bedroom...waking up with the tree right outside the window made me feel as though I was in a tree house. The wedding was at the Sandpoint Center which was walkable from the house right in the downtown area. I would stay here again if I have the opportunity and would highly recommend it. Thank you for providing us with such a wonderful opportunity.

                        We have stayed at the wonderful Lake Street Cottage twice now and have enjoyed both our visits tremendously. The house is well kept, clean and is beautifully furnished. It is equipped with everything you might need. There are two lovely bedrooms and a full bath on the main floor and additional bedrooms and a full bath upstairs. The owner has made this home very inviting for youngsters, with stuffed animals and games galore. The new, spacious kitchen and beautiful large dining table are perfect for family gatherings. The house is located conveniently close to Winter Ridge - our favorite health food grocery store and cafe. Also, Sandpoint's charming downtown area is an easy walk or bike ride away. In fact, bikes (and kayaks) are included for use with this great rental. We look forward to staying at Lake Street Cottage again soon!

                        We loved our stay at the Lake Street Cottage and will definitely stay here again in the future. The overall environment was clean, well maintained, and spacious. The kitchen was well equipped for our needs. We thought the beds were VERY comfortable. All in all, it exceeded our expectations. This was our first experience doing this type of vacation rental so we weren't sure what to expect. The owner was very helpful and responsive to all our questions. We highly recommend this cottage to anyone interested in visiting Sandpoint!

                        This is an overdue review of our stay at The Lake Street Cottage. My family had the opportunity to stay in both of Paula's rentals (VRBO 83218 and VRBO 276205) over the Chrismas holidays - and we loved them both ! Paula was so accommodating with our odd circumstances that we needed a small place for a couple days (and I really wanted a fireplace) and a larger house for the rest of our stay. I have been a flt. attnd. for 25 years and have stayed in literally a hundred rentals and Paula's places are a couple of the very few that are worthy of a repeat. She has taken great care and obvious pride in furnishing them with lovely and very comfortable furniture. Lots and lots of little extras that made our stay perfect - giant down comforters on the comfy beds, nice linens and towels. My sister and I did some Christmas baking while we stayed and her housekeeper made sure that we had everything that we needed. Being able to walk to the nearby healthy market was a plus with the couple feet of snow that we were blessed with. She had such nice things in the kitchen, dishes, mixing bowls, pots and pans - it really made it a great place to be snowed in. The kids had games galore and a drawer full of movies to keep them happy. We will be back in the summer Paula - thank you for everything

                        Three generations got together for the 4th of July. The home was very comfy, exactly as described and a most well-equipped kitchen. We used the canoe and kayak (recommend putting in at Third Street Pier. Go down Third Street toward water. Will run into it.) We cooked all meals at the house and ate outside under the willow tree. The kitchen table ended up being technology central and the wi-fi was essential. Thanks! Oh yeah, and the bikes got a workout too! We watched the hometown parade, shopped, drank at the wineries and Trinity on the beach. Some watched the fireworks over the lake from City Beach, but my husband and I watched them from the patio overlooking the marina at The La Rosa Club where we had dinner four years ago on our honeymoon. Also drove up to Schweitzer mountain and hiked to waterfalls and did the zip line. Loved having coffee in the morning on the front porch and catching up with a sister and my mother. Walked almost everywhere due to your excellent location. Will we come back? You betcha!

                        My wife and I traveled to Sandpoint to ski at the beautiful Schweitzer resort - and Paula really came through for us. The home we were originally going to stay at had a leaking roof and although we contacted Paula late that evening - she rented to us at the last minute and saved our trip - THANK YOU!! Even more - I left a jacket in the house as we rushed home (it is a very sentimental piece of clothing since I got it in Geneva and wore it hiking through the Swiss Alps last summer). Paula and her cleaning team mailed it back! That's stand up service. THANK YOU!! Regarding the home - it is a great little place easily within walking distance of downtown and several places to shop and eat. The corner location is great. Things were clean (including the dishes in the cupboard) and the internet/cable worked great. We usually stay at VRBO properties when we travel - and this home had the touches and value that vault high on our list. Thanks again.

                        Sandpoint is an awesome vacation town.........My family and I were lucky enough to find this darling vacation home so close to downtown. It was supplied with all cooking needs. Cooking in or dinning out you have it all. It's a short walk to the beautiful beach or downtown for all the wonderful shopping along with so much to see. The house is very clean and well kept. Ideal for our family. We loved it........

                        We took our family vacation in Sandpoint, where we had lived several years ago, we wanted to share this wonderful place with our children. This home is in a great location, my son wanted to bike everywhere! There was plenty of room inside and out...we even had room to park the boat! It's very nicely decorated, spacious upstairs, lots of sunlight and VERY clean. Thank you to the Davys we had a fantastic time! S, L, J, M

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: We are empty nesters happily living in Northern California, still working full time but dreaming about semi-retirement with the option of spending our summers in Sandpoint.

                      Why the Owner Chose Sandpoint:
                      We visited Sandpoint and were instantly captivated by its sophisticated simplicity. It is a step back in time to a simpler America but has all of the modern amenities travelers love….GREAT restaurants, hip wine bars, live entertainment and lots of outdoor adventure in the midst of beautiful scenery… a winning combination for a relaxing and exciting vacation experience. We love doing projects and decorating at the Lake Street Cottage, it is our life sized doll house. Our guests tell us over and over again that the most memorable part of their vacation was the time they spent reconnecting with their family. For us that makes all of our hard work worth it!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      We love that our home is so conveniently located close to town. When we get there we park the car and bike or walk EVERYWHERE! We love to sit on the front porch with a cool drink and some good friends or BBQ in the backyard with the whole family.
