  • Great property

    "We rented the home so our family could attend a wedding in the area but also spend time together. It was well furnished with everything from games and movies for the kids to a nice waffle maker to make family breakfast. We highly recommend this property."

  • Everything and MORE! Excellent option for extended family vacation.

    "We had 3 extended families meeting in Sandpoint to attend my neices wedding. This house served as the perfect location so that we could enjoy staying together, cook our own meals, and take advantage of the beautiful surrounding area. With ages ranging from 3 to 69, including 2 teenagers, this house had everything we needed. It was wonderfully equipped with games, TV's (although we never turned one on), hot tub, grill, 2 outdoor decks, plenty of space in the bathrooms and bedrooms, anything you would need for kitchen appliances, dishes, spices, etc. (Although we missed having a mixer to make frosting for a cake we made, but really, that is the ONLY thing we could think of we would have wanted that wasn't there.) The linens were excellent quality and plentiful. The washer and dryer was also a nice amenity. The location was close to the ski resort for easy access and we spent a lot of time walking the many trails around the house. In short, it was the perfect place for our needs."

The peak season is mid-December to February. As the snows melt, the landscape is transformed into an adventure playground. Many of the cross country trails become biking paths as mountain bikers take over the mountains. The summertime offers many outdoor attractions including hiking and horseback riding. Boating can be enjoyed on the nearby Lake Pend Oreille.

In the summertime, you can exchange your skis for your mountain bike or hiking boots and follow the many trails that traverse the mountain. There are routes for all levels of mountain bikers including downhill runs, cross country climbs and a more leisurely Jeep track for family outings. There are several hiking paths that follow routes of varying lengths. Get some recommendations from the local information office on the best route to follow and the trail conditions.
