Property description

1480 sq foot A-frame, real hardwood floors. Three Percheron horses!! Property is on 23 acres. Fishing, boating, swimming, jet skiing nearby. Snowmobiling, snowshoe and ice skate in the winter. Tons of wildlife including moose, deer, elk, black bear, eagles, hawks, turkeys etc. Minutes from Priest Lake, Pend Oreille Lake and Sandpoint (with a city beach). Pets are welcome. It's great for weddings, family reunions, retreats, etc.

Plenty of parking for large family reumions and other types of events. Places to pitch tents. Fenced yard - pets must be in house, yard or on leash. May smoke outside.


Wildlife is various and abundant. 4 sets of eagles have built their nest in close proximity to the cabin; we feed the deer and elk in the winter. We have refurbished the entire house so the inside is virtually brand new. Close to Priest River, Hope, Sandpoint, Coeur D'Alene, City Beach, Pend Oreille Lake and River. On 23 acres.

Car: Necessary

Our A-frame is about 8 miles from Sandpoint, 11 from Schweitzer Mountain Ski Lodge, 10 from Priest Lake and Priest River. Close to the Pend Oreille River and Lake. Plenty of fishing.

Other Activities: Something is always going on - the Festival at Sandpoint, Lost in the 50's just to name a couple. We have several repeat renters like the one below:

We were guests at the cabin in 2007 and again in 2008. It is relaxing, and secluded. We saw several moose and a black bear during our second visit. We plan on visiting again in 2009 - it's like a home away from home.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: My husband Rocky and I bought the land in 1996. Rocky built the home himself in 1997; in fact he built almost every home around us. We love animals. We have five German Shepherds and three Percheron Draft Horses. We have 3 "babies." We rescued their father, Gus, the stallion in 1998 when he was 13. He crossed the rainbow bridge 3 years ago. We rescued the mother, Ebony, in 2007. We lost Ebony last year (2015). We are left with their three "children" - Blackjack (boy - foal) - born May 1, 2009; Pepperjack - (girl - filly) born April 30, 2010 and Hijack born April 30, 2011.

Why the Owner Chose Sandpoint, ID, USA:
In 1996, my daughter-in-law and I were sent on a trip to buy property in Idaho, Washington, Montana or Oregon. The very first place the realtor took us was Sandpoint. After we drove across the Long Bridge into Sandpoint, we knew we were home and we looked no further. My husband built their home. On our property, he built the A-frame and later a state-of-the-art dog kennel for me to breed and train German Shepherd dogs. We trained for police, protection, search and rescue, cadaver, companion, obedience (you can't always tell it with my 3 "pups" who are 3 years old. My husband changed the dog kennel into our current home in 2011. We live on the property but can't hear or see you unless you want or need something. We try to give you as much privacy as we can.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The list is too long. The house itself is comfortable and has tons of storage places and room for sleeping bags if needed. Wildlife is everywhere. We have 4 pair of nesting bald eagles nearby. Moose and deer are abundant along with black bear, geese, ducks, wild turkeys and more. We've fed the deer through the winter of 2015-16 and have up to 30 now hanging around.
