***Main house interior has been freshly repainted with updated lighting and decor.
Enjoy views of Pend Oreille and Schweitzer from one of the best bays on the lake. This property sits on 1.6 flat and grassy acres and has 200 feet of lakefront. With shallow, calm waters, kids can splash in the lake or hang out on rafts without floating away. Plenty of grassy lawn to play soccer, football, jump on the trampoline, etc.
Perfect set up for two families to spread out between the main and guest houses. Our 1,500 sq ft deck easily accommodates large dinners or gatherings. Hop on your boat and be at Starbucks within 10 minutes or head to numerous lakeside restaurants. Take bike trails into town or head to Cougar Mountain just behind the house.
Main house has two bedrooms upstairs and a great room that doubles as a bedroom, ping-pong and TV room. Main floor has newer leather furniture, dining room table, open kitchen with bar seating for 4, and a large covered porch connecting to the deck. The guest house has two bedrooms, living room, kitchen and full bath.
We left Seattle in 2003 for a change in lifestyle and were drawn to Sandpoint for its pace, charm, beauty and easy access to Schweitzer & Lake Pend Oreille. While business necessitated a move to Spokane, we did not want to give up all we love about the area and we often use our home year around. This summer, however, we are taking a six month family sabbatical to Costa Rica, which leaves the rare opportunity to rent our home throughout the entire summer.
Frank and Heidi Duffy purchased this house in 2004
We love our property for its park-like setting, views of Sandpoint & Schweitzer, and privacy while being only 7 minutes from Sandpoint. The lake is just off our expansive deck and we can be at Schweitzer in just 30 minutes.
1.6 acres of flat and grassy property with 200' of lakefront. The water deepens gradually, making the water family-friendly for even the youngest members of your group. A separate guest house allows two families to easily vacation together while still allowing for privacy when needed.
What an awesome place by the lake!It was the perfect place for our sibling reunion (11 adults). We had a great time there! Everyone commented on how beautiful, warm and cozy this home is.... we felt right "at home" immediately, and loved our time there! We spent a lot of time enjoying the back deck and the beautiful views! We also had so much fun with the magnetic alphabet in the upstairs bathroom, posting messages to each other. Guess we "oldsters" still have a bit of "child" left in us!
Thank you, Frank and Heidi, for letting us spend a bit of time at your special place. This was our 17th sibling reunion, staying at vacation rentals, and we all agreed yours is the best! It was one of the cleanest, and definitely the most well set-up home we have stayed at.
We appreciate all your kindnesses to us. And our thanks to Wendy for all she did.
For anyone thinking of renting this place, you will not be disappointed. ALL the beds are comfortable, the kitchen is the most well-equipped I've ever seen in a vacation rental, and it's so clean it glows!!! Plus the location is beautiful and peaceful! I loved getting up early and sitting in the sunroom watching the ducks on the lake, and the fish jumping for their breakfast.
This house and guest house were a perfect place for our Two family vacation. Everything we needed and more were provided. The kitchen was amazingly well stocked, the deck, big lawn and boat lift/dock made life relaxing. We will book again!
Frank and Heidi were very helpful and quick to respond. They view is spectacular. We enjoyed using the paddle boards. We would stay here again.
The website description and photos are accurate, the main house has been updated and both houses have been well-maintained. Great deck, yard and dock overlooking the lake. The kitchen had everything we needed and it’s a quick trip across the bridge for restaurants, etc. The owners always responded quickly to my questions and I wouldn’t hesitate to book again or recommend to friends and family.
Both houses are in great condition and are exceptionally well stocked - we cooked at home for 5 adults and 5 kids and never had to worry about not having the right kitchen supplies. Everything is high end and well cared for. The yard was the highlight by far - massive deck and tons of flat green space, we played every sport you can think of and were never cramped for space. The kids loved the shallow sandy bottomed water to play in, the dock to jump off and my husband loved having a boat lift ! Frank and Heidi were exceptionally nice to deal with and so accommodating, we will be back next year!
Everything from the location description to the photos were very accurate. The amenities in this great home are all 1st class right down to the coffee maker. Exceptionally clean, well ventilated and the property is in very good shape with a paved driveway right into the garage. A minor misunderstanding when we arrived, was cleared up quickly and we had a great week. The pier and boat lift is in very good condition, and I've already recommended this site to many friends here in Alberta. This was our 3rd rental in the area over the past ## of years and by far the most suitable for families with young children.
