WELCOME to Winter 2018-19 at Spirit lake
WINTER SPECIAL We've lowered our winter minimum stay to 2-nights + 10% discount for couples (2 guests).
We're upgrading the master bathroom! This bath may not be available at times this winter; other 3 baths are open
Come and share our exclusive, secluded waterfront home on beautiful Spirit Lake, one of the best kept secrets in the North Idaho lake district. Enjoy the slower pace, serene beauty, and warmer water that surrounding lakes just don't offer any more. Enjoy easy access to hiking, biking, great fishing, wildlife viewing, and lots of water sports in the summer months just outside your front door! Kayaks and paddle boat included so you can explore the natural beauty of the lake at your own pace. Ice fishing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, and absolute solitude make this a one-of-a kind retreat in the winter months. We chose Spirit Lake because it has the warm water of a smaller lake without the congestion or commercialization of nearby lakes. It offers forested shorelines with a mountain drop back, small bays and islands to explore, and abundant wildlife.
The house is nestled in the trees on 100' of private lake frontage and offers 3000 feet of living space on three levels with 5 bedrooms and 4 baths and room for up to 10 guests. Extra $15/guest/night fee for groups over 8.
Enjoy three levels of decking including private decks off master suite and one additional lakefront bedroom, all with spectacular views of the lake and mountains. We have two outdoor eating areas with ample seating and modern gas grill. Kid's Cave with bunk beds, sofa, and entertainment system provides an area for kids to hang out away from adult bedrooms and great room. Game table/poker table, games, books, and DVD library. Spacious private master suite with king bed.
Before you submit an inquiry, please read below to see what's included with rental. Thank you! Additional amenities include private boat dock with room for multiple watercraft, safe swimming area with ladder onto dock, hot tub just off the water with seasonal outdoor shower (available in the summer), use of 3 one-man fishing kayaks and paddle boat included in rental, and convenient driveway parking for up to four cars and parking spot for one boat trailer.
The main level has a spacious kitchen with an eating bar (seats 6), adjacent formal dining area with seating for 8, well appointed great room with entertainment system including oversized TV, BluRay, DVD, and a cozy wood burning fireplace for the colder months. Linens, towels, cookware, large gas BBQ grill, dishes, utensils and most pantry basics included as well as blender, hand mixer, waffle iron, and toasters. Large screen TV and two additional TVs, all with DVD players. Handicap accessible on the main floor only which is level with the driveway, other floors involve stairs (no handicapped accessible bedrooms, half bath is accessible).
Enjoy your get-away free from the constant bombardment of technology such as wifi and dish TV so you can take advantage of family time together and experience the peace and tranquility of nature's beauty. 3G and 4G-LTE are available through major cellular carriers like Verizon and AT&T for the times you need to check into civilization. We use our own personal cellular "hot spot" for internet with good results (our Verizon hot spot is not included in rental).
Unfortunately we can't welcome guests with jet skis, loud stereos, or drones since these activities impinge on the enjoyment of others. Due to allergies, we are unable to accommodate pets.
We offer great off-season pricing so check out our calendar for openings during the fall, winter and spring season. Perhaps some cross country skiing or ice fishing for kokanee this winter? Warm up around the fireplace or take a dip in the hot tub! Spring and fall are some of the most beautiful and serene times of the year if you are looking for a quiet retreat. These times offer little traffic on the water and great wildlife viewing of bald eagles, osprey, blue heron, and moose.
