About Shelly Young

My wife and I have lived in Sandpoint for 35 years now. I am a general contractor and a retired hunting guide for the local area and around the U.S. My wife is a retired Dietician. We decided that we were ready to share our lake front home in Sandpoint with others who wanted to visit our beautiful destination town. Our hobbies include: fishing, hunting, riding ATV's, mountain biking, hiking, golfing and dining at our local restaurants. Living in Sandpoint has allowed us to enjoy all of these activities without having to travel very far. We have really enjoyed sharing our home with the past renters and love to help you plan any activities for your vacation. We especially enjoy having families utilize our beautiful beach, with their children.

Shelly Young purchased this house in 1982

Why Shelly Young chose Sandpoint

This property was our primary residence for the past 22 years. Have decided to travel more and have built a condo on the property to stay in when we are in Sandpoint and use this home for a vacation rental.

What makes this house unique

This property is unique from other lake front homes in our area in that it has a very large beach front that is easily accessed from the yard and deck. The beach a gentle slope into the water making it an ideal swimming area for children. We have a private dock for your boat with a boat lift. Our home is located on a private drive which gives you privacy and security. One of the things we have enjoyed the most about our home is we can sit on our deck and watch the numerous activities and wildlife all along the river. We also enjyoy the design of our home which has the master bedroom and living space on the ground floor and the additional rooms and another living space(loft) upstairs. This allows kids or teens to play/relax in a separate area from the adults. Also traveling to town is only 5 minutes. Whether its viewing the awesome sunsets around the fire pit, or the evening stars while soaking in the hot tub it just does not get any more relaxing than this. We are available 24/7 for your questions, and to help you have a wonderful stay!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed here to go skiing up at Schwietzer Mnt. It was a perfect location and sitting in the hot tub surrounded by snow and lake views was spectacular! We will be back next year for sure.

Family Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This our dream vacation. My family has stayed at this property for two years in a row and had the third booked until a property we purchased in the area changed our rental plans. Wanted to put out a big thank you to Jane and Charlie for the great attention they gave us and sharing their wonderful property with us. We really liked having a boat lift and how calm the water is outside of the property. It is close for boat fuel and the odd meal or beverage at Dover. My wife liked the short trips to Starbucks every morning on the boat as you can pull up in Sandpoint to the Starbucks dock! The yard is huge and many games of soccer, badminton and volleyball were had. The fire by the water each night was a great finish. This property sleeps 10 very comfortably. You have a high recommendation from our family. Thanks again and hope to see you soon in Sandpoint:)

So Relaxing....

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and had a fabulous experience. The home was large and well looked after. Our group consisted of 3 families with a total of 13 people and we all had plenty of room and never felt like we were on top of each other. The property itself was amazing. The views were so beautiful and the kids loved the yard to run around and the beach area was great. The best part was sitting on the dock overlooking the river every morning. We didn't want to leave! The water was crystal clear and warm! We all had a great time swimming in it. The owners Jane and Charlie were awesome. They were really friendly and helpful. Jane made sure we had everything we needed including a highchair, playpen and baby gate. The kitchen was stocked with spices and every appliance we could need! We cant wait to return!

Great Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in July and had a fantastic experience. The house was perfect. Nice large kitchen and spacious bedrooms. The deck and hot tub were used everynight to enjoy the summer evenings. Water was clean with nice grassy area for kids to play when not in the water. I would definitely go back.
