Property description

If you are looking for a romantic lover's getaway/spiritual retreat with total privacy, and an inspirational and renewing escape look no further. This retreat is about experiencing a love affair, whether with Source, significant other or self. Rest, renew and reflect in the expanse of nature. This intimate cliffside home is built on mountainside rock overlooking Creation's back yard. View nothing but water, mountains and the animals that make it their home.

When it comes to views size matters! The views are jaw dropping. Nature envelopes you. Watch eagles and osprey compete for food as you lounge in the hot tub or deck. Hear the cry of a loon. Watch sunsets from the comfort of the outdoor fire pit on an infinity deck that gives you a birds eye view of this nature retreat. Wake up and go to sleep to the most inspirational setting you could wish for. While there are a host of activities and attractions nearby you may never want to leave the premises for after doing nothing all day you may want to rest afterwards!

This is an owner's private home, not a rental. This artistic and eco friendly home has all of the amenities with which to pamper yourself. Enjoy the hot tub just steps off the master suite, separate bathrooms, TV and a fully stocked gourmet kitchen. A great room with fireplace adjoins the kitchen and a spacious master suite with fireplace all overlook the water and mountains providing an intimate experience with nature. This home was built with love, crafted by an artist/designer and inspired by Spirit.
This isn't a rental, this is an experience.

Near Nature near perfect: Forest Service and mountains are what's behind this home and water and mountains are in front. Minutes from your door you can hike, mountain bike, kayak, boat, and swim. There are two places to moor your boat and a place to put in directly below the house. Spend days exploring and enjoying the Best small town in the US per Rand McNaley. Visit Schweitzer Mtn Ski Resort, Silverwood Water Park or take a road trip and explore the scenic highways that take you to Montana and back. There's no lack of recreational activity outside your door though frankly once you are here you may not wish to leave the premises.

Car: Recommended

We're located in the beautiful lakeside town of Hope, minutes away from the

scenic town of Sandpoint, Idaho. Sandpoint was voted one of the best small

towns in the US by numerous magazines like Sunset Magazine and the New

York Times. Lake Pend Orielle has over 100 miles of shoreline and is chock full of

islands and nooks and bays to explore by land or water! The area is gorgeous

with boundless opportunities for kayaking, hiking, boating and any kind of

outdoor activity you can think of.

Other Activities: All water sports, bird watching

Golf: Just 4 miles to Idaho Club's Jack Nicholus Signature golf course. The less demanding Elks Course (9 hole) is 20 minutes away.

Ski: Schweitzer Ski Resort is 25 miles away


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: Our meeting was a gift from God. There's no other way to explain how we met. Both avid outdoorspeople and reclusives, we created a love nest that reflects our tastes: private, surrounded by nature, user/eco friendly, and a place that is both inspiring and healing. Our intention is to pass on the blessings that this home has given so generously to us.

Why the Owner Chose Hope, ID, USA:
This is a Soul House. Words don't do this home justice. It is experienced by the heart. Situated on a cliff, the view let's you experience a cloud's ledge perspective. Nearly all rooms look out on the view. You are totally private, whether in the garden area, the deck or inside.
