Nice property, but year-round resident neighbors and houses very close together
The house is nice - very spacious. Deck and view are incredible, and grassy area is also nice. Dock is a floating dock. The property is managed by Sandpoint Vacation Rentals, and they are great to work with. Five stars for them!
It is important to note that the year-round resident neighbors are particularly sensitive about the 300' no wake zone. If you plan to bring a wake boat for surfing, this is NOT the place for you. We were informed by several neighbors down the shore, that these people are part of an initiative to ban wake boats from the river. We were confronted by two sets of neighbors (northeast) regarding our "violation" of the no wake zone. One particular woman was screaming at us. I have to say that we should have been more conscientious about it, but it was really unnerving. It was like they were just waiting for us to make a mistake so they could come let us know.
Potential renters should know that the property is not particularly dog friendly either (if you are approved to bring one). We were confronted instantly by the next door neighbor as we were unloading the vehicles upon arrival that we should keep our dog on our side. Then, for the next few days we had their dog coming over to the rental property. In fact, one day their dog stole a box of pizza. As we were trying to be good neighbors, we chose not to make a big deal about it. Plus it was a little ironic and funny!
This is our third summer renting a house on the river, and to my knowledge, we've never had an issue with any neighbors. I've never felt more unwelcome on a vacation. It's clear the neighbors are angry about the wake issue in general and that this property is a VRBO.
All that said, I'm sure this would be a great spot for families without plans for wake surfing. Just know the pictures don't reflect how close the neighboring houses are. Year-round resident neighbors should also be considered.
Updated and clean
This home sits right on lakefront property and worked well for 3 families. We were really disappointed in the fact that the grass was totally dead. We picked primarily for the yard because we had young kids who would have made great use of it, and it was totally unusable and you had to wear shoes to walk to the dock. The home itself is updated and we had all the amenities we needed. We would only suggest that the yard is better maintained next summer, and otherwise this is a lovely rental.
Thank you for your review Erin. We are glad that you loved the property and had a great time there!
We are sorry about the lawn being dry while you were there. We have a lawn service company that is responsible for maintaining the sprinkler system there, and they have remedied the issue.
We hope to see you again in Sandpoint next summer!
Really worth it!
Really worth it!
Very nice Home. It easily accomadeted 2 Families. The dock worked well for our boats.
We ran out of propane in the BBQ the first day, Sand Point Vacations ran another tank right out for us. The BBQ was real slow to cook, It should be upgraded. 2 of the Queen beds could use new mattresses and some new pillows. Everything else was fine...We wouldn't hesitate to rent it again.
