Third straight year and we will come back for more
"We have a large extended family - a dozen siblings and more than 40 grandkids. For the past three years a half dozen of us gather with our kids at this piece of paradise. Others come up for a few days if they can and stay at the lodge next door. (how convenient is that) We rent the big house, the cottage, the bunkhouses and the "love shack" if available. We have never been disappointed. The rustic setting fits us well, the accommodations are perfect and location can't be beat. We build a big puzzle on the deck, play poker at night around the big kitchen table, sing at the campfire, cook big meals, swim, boat and relax. We are close enough to town for people to get away, close to the long bridge for early morning walks and runs and each year we end our trip figuring out which week we want to come back next summer."

"Our party was made up of 2 families (total of 11 people) for our week at this wonderful house. The house was perfect for our large group! There are 4 bedrooms on the upper floor and they quite nicely accommodated 2 couples (although the master bedroom is WAY larger than the other room with a queen bed, so deciding who gets the master may be an issue if you have 2 families staying here), 4 young adult ladies (bunk room), my elderly mother (room with double) and two young men (stayed in the LARGE lower floor games room). There are 2 bathrooms (one down and one up). The house was well stocked with all kinds of towels including swim towels and it had a great washer and dryer in the large downstairs bathroom. The kitchen has all the amenities you could possibly need and was well stocked with basics, including plenty of dishes and some spices. The dining table is very large, plus there is a lovely deck out back with more seating area.
The best part of this property is the fantastic gazebo and beautiful dock. We spent much of our time in the gazebo or swimming in the lake when were "home." The lake is clear and warmish and given that we had 90+degree weather each day, we were in the lake at lot! The house came with kayaks, a paddle board, and life jackets of all sizes. Very fun! We rented a boat from Bottle Bay Marina for 3 days and that was one of the highlights of the trip. We took a trip down to Garfield Bay in the boat, docked at the public dock and had ice cream cones from the store there. The young people wake boarded and tubed and had a blast.
Sandpoint is about 30 minutes away, so stock up on groceries your first day. We only had to make one more trip to the store mid-week and we combined that with a night out for dinner.
The only cons of the house was the lack of air conditioning. As I mentioned, we had 90-95 degree weather and it was HOT in the house, especially in the bedrooms. There are ceiling fans which certainly did help. We had also brought a portable air conditioner and floor fans from home which we really appreciated. I know the heat was somewhat uncommon for that time of year, but air conditioning would be a great addition. When we first arrived I was somewhat apprehensive about the one-lane road that splits the house from the grassy area and gazebo. But, there are very few cars on the road and we actually enjoyed walking up and down the road and meeting the friendly neighbors. All in all, a fantastic home and location!"

"This cozy "home away from home" provided everything you could ever want in a vacation rental and then some! Beautifully decorated with modern appliances. I specifically loved the Keurig coffeemaker and coffees provided, the warm cozy bedding, all of the bathroom amenities and the ample closet space! The condo is within walking distance of the downtown area with all of the wonderful restaurants of Sandpoint and the beautiful City Beach. You cannot go wrong with this rental!"
