"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 was our second time renting this condo. The condo is beautifully appointed & is maintained in pristine condition. We love Bayview and believe this is the best rental available in the area. You cannot beat the lake & mountain views from the private balcony, the access to local services, or the boating and swimming access that this location offers at very a reasonable & competitive rate for the area."

"Totally agree with all the other reviews. It is immaculately clean and freshly renovated but still gave you a feeling of being at home.
They have just installed brand new AC unit in the living room which was powerful enough to ensure it remained cool in the bedrooms at night too ...even though the temperatures when we were there were reaching close to 100degF! That was a godsend!
The owner was very friendly and responsive to questions we had before and during the trip.
Love that it is on a quiet tree lined street within easy walking distance of the beach and town. In addition to previous comments it was v convenient was that they converted the garage area into a mudroom - so we could leave all the sandy towels shoes etc there rather than bring into the house."

"My wife and out two young children came back to Sandpoint in late September to to get a perspective of it in fall. This house is a perfect three bedroom layout, with all three bedrooms on the second floor. The kitchen/living room/dining room makes the home. Stone counters, new and clean appliances. Wonderful lounging environment. Beautiful views of the lake and plenty of privacy from the 3rd ave public pier. All three bedrooms are ample size and the rooms and the linens are equivalent to a 4-5 star hotel room, which is always something I am wary of in rental homes. Location and scenery are unmatched, and it is an easy walk to downtown Sandpoint. We will certainly stay here again in subsequent visits."
