About the Property

2 Bed, 2 Ba, upper unit in four unit bld; exceptional mt and water views

Our Dover Bay Retreat air conditioned condo provides guests with a quiet, sunny, immaculately clean, spacious, smoke free and tastefully furnished condo surrounded by acres of pristine wetlands and nine miles of pet friendly walking trails. If you enjoy nature, you'll love our location.

New 60 inch smart tv Jan 2016.

Large windows show the active Walston pond and the Cabinet and Selkirk Mountains.
Cathedral ceilings add to the spaciousness of the 1340 square feet of comfortable, relaxing indoor living space.

We are pet friendly and do not charge a pet fee. Pets are part of the family, and our many repeat guests are responsible pet owners as well as non pet owners who love our private, relaxing, well furnished and reasonably priced condominium.

Sandpoint is one of the nation's most interesting, beautiful small towns. You and your family can walk, bike, or drive into town to enjoy all that it has to offer, but when you're ready to come home for the night you'll enjoy quiet nights in a planned residential wetlands community where cars drive slowly and people passing by wave at one another. Yes we have mosquitoes in the summer; we also have deer, beaver, osprey, great blue heron, muskrat, and the occasional moose (and a bear if you're lucky enough to see--I've never seen one in Dover).

Or stay in Dover--rent a kayak from the walking-distance marina and explore the miles of wetlands, river, and lake; rent a boat or bring your own and keep it at the Dover Bay marina; enjoy a fabulous night out at the restaurant Dish with its waterfront outside dining (within walking distance from our condo). Enjoy a leisurely walk along one of the many trails following the wetlands, waterfront park, and river. Don't be surprised if you see blue herons, beaver, deer, osprey, bald eagles, and even an occasional moose.

Dover Bay is a 285-acre planned community, over half of which is set aside as undeveloped open space. It's private and quiet but not isolated.

We take pride in providing our guests with nearly everything they need to relax, cook gourmet meals, and spend quality family time together. And family to us includes pets. As pet owners ourselves, we know that responsible pet owners make sure their pets are healthy, up-to-date on shots, altered, and well behaved, which is why we do not require a separate pet fee. People who love and travel with their pets are, in our experience, the best guests. In over eight years of renting to pet owners, we’ve never once had an issue with a guest and his or her pet, which is why we also attract guests who do not travel with their pets as well. No one—pet owners or not—wants to stay in a home that reeks of pee, is infested with fleas, or shows the wear and tear of irresponsible pet owners.

Our many amenities include:

*Walking distance to gym/outdoor saltwater pool (extra fee), restaurant, marina, Lake, river (Sandpoint residents consider the water west of the I95 bridge to be the Pend ‘Oreille River and East Lake Pend ‘Oreille. We’re located slightly to the west.
Surrounded by miles of walking trails along the Pend Oreille River. A paved walking/biking trail, separate from the highway, takes you right into Sandpoint.
*Family friendly community-- quiet streets and paved walking trails for kids to bike and explore with little car traffic.
•No loud trains or busy streets to cross
*15 miles to the top of Schweitzer, seven miles to the base, where a bus will take you to the top of the mountain if you don't want to drive to the top (not available year round—check Schweitzer’s web site for updated information)

*Pets okay with prior approval
*Upper Unit in four unit building (indoor stairs)

Dover Bay is a planned residential resort community set on 285 acres, most of which are set aside for wetlands, parks, and trails.

It is conveniently located three miles from Sandpoint, Idaho where there are many shops, galleries, and water sports. Schweitzer's park and ride lot is located about 20 minutes drive, or if you want to drive all the way to the top yourself it will take you a bit less than 45 minutes. 35 miles to Silverwood, Idaho's largest theme park; easy access to outstanding hiking, biking, swimming, fishing, and other outdoor activities. Easy driving distance to Sandpoint Music Festival.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: We are a family of three who live in Spokane, WA. Both my husband and I are teachers. We stay in our condo during the ski season, so we 'test drive' all of our appliances, linens, kitchen utensils, etc. and replace and add as needed. We want you to enjoy your stay as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Dover Bay, Sandpoint, ID, USA:
Wildlife viewing, walking trails, close location to Schweitzer and Sandpoint, ID. Great biking, hiking, active art community, beautiful location. Quiet but not isolated--you do have neighbors and are in a planned community. If you love nature, you'll love our place. No loud trains, no outdoor parties or partiers to keep you up at night (although the osprey chicks in the late spring and summer might be a bit loud if you leave the deck patio door open).

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
See moose, deer, beavers, osprey, eagles, and other wildlife. Quiet, little traffic, easy walking trails, paved biking/walking trail, privacy, sunny, comfortable and extra clean. Dover is a family friendly planned community set in wetlands-if you enjoy nature and wild animals, you'll love our place' however, we're not isolated--you have neighbors and are not alone. We also update often--in Jan of 2017 we purchased a larger and new flatscreen television, a new media center, and a spotting scope for viewing wildlife.
