About the property

Blackwolf Cabin - a Waterfront Home with Chef Kitchen, Hot Tub & Private Dock!

You will fall in love with The Blackwolf Cabin. 110' feet of waterfront and a brand new 700 sq ft private dock. You can enjoy everything that North Idaho has to offer from this centrally located and well-appointed waterfront home. Whether you are enjoying the snow sports at North Idaho’s destination ski resort Schweitzer Mountain, riding the thrilling rides and waterpark attractions at Silverwood the largest theme and waterpark in the American Northwest, or soaking up the sun on beautiful Lake Pend Oreille, Black Wolf Cabin is in the middle of it all.

Blackwolf Cabin is located on a protected inlet with easy boat access to Lake Pend Oreille. The home boasts a chef’s kitchen with a six burner commercial gas range with granite countertops and a wrap around bar with seating for eight. There are two bedrooms (each with queen sized beds) and one bathroom on the main level which also includes the kitchen, dining area, and family room/great room. The main level bathroom has granite countertops and a generous spa like shower. The top floor has a loft area with a daybed and trundle as well as the oversized master bedroom (with king sized bed and sofa sitting area) and an en suite bathroom. The master bathroom also has granite counter tops with a huge walk-in shower and a jetted soaking tub. The lower level has a fourth bedroom (with a queen sized bed and a twin sized bunk bed) another bathroom with a full size shower, a mud room for ski/kayak storage, a poker table and a Movie Theater room with a 100" screen!

All bathrooms have been tastefully appointed with high end fixtures as well as tile, stone, and granite. The great room floor plan feels open and inviting and boasts high ceilings and large windows that take advantage of the view of the bay. Most of the home has hard wood flooring. There is also a large deck with plenty of seating plus a 30 amp RV electrical hook up with water near by as well.

At the water’s edge there’s a dock with easy boat access to the big lake but without the wind and rough water sometimes associated with Lake Pend Oreille. Bring your paddle boards, kayaks, and other water toys and enjoy the quiet and calm water! There are ample hiking and biking opportunities close by as well. Just ten minutes to downtown Sandpoint, twenty-five minutes to Silverwood, and thirty minutes to Schweitzer (fifteen minutes to the Schweitzer shuttle parking lot) puts all of the area’s attractions within easy reach by car. Biking to Sandpoint’s shops and restaurants is a breeze too on the paved path across the long bridge. Even Spokane, Coeur D’Alene, and the Canadian Border are within an hour and twenty minutes from the property.

Blackwolf Cabin is your ideal North Idaho getaway. A stay at this amazing property will recharge your soul.

About Kristine

My name is Kristine and I am a working professional, a mom, and a wife in Washington State. For many years I have enjoyed exploring our beautiful country with my family of five. Often times we were accompanied by other family members, friends, or friends of our children. Staying in hotel rooms was compartmentalizing, sterile, and cost prohibitive so we routinely rented vacation homes. We absolutely loved the comfort, convenience, and value that we found in the vacation homes that we have rented over the years. Many wonderful family memories were made while staying in these properties. Vacation rental homes allowed our group to have privacy for everyone yet space to come together all under one roof. Each home has shared its uniqueness, character, and charm with my family and has added to our overall vacation experience. Our daily explorations usually culminated with a family meal that was lovingly prepared and then enjoyed around the dinner table of our vacation rental routinely followed by a rousing card game. It gave us an intimate venue to recount our adventures of the day and share a few laughs.

My husband and I have had long term rental properties for years. We have restructured our investment model to include three vacation rentals; a beach house in Lincoln City Oregon, a lake front home in Sandpoint Idaho and a desert oasis in Las Vegas, NV. As a vacation rental customer for years I have come to appreciate a clean and well appointed property in a desirable location. We have worked very hard to create vacation rental properties that meet or exceed the expectations of our guests. We self manage the properties and rely on our dedicated local partners to keep them clean, fully stocked, and maintained to our high standard. My aim is to create an environment for every guest to have a relaxing and enjoyable five star stay. Please feel free to contact me immediately if there is anything I can do to improve the quality of your stay at our properties.

Perfect vacation in a beautiful home!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed in this home over President’s Day weekend with another family for our annual trip to Schweitzer mountain. I loved this place the moment we opened the front door. It’s looks exactly like it shows on the website so their are no surprises. Very clean and organized. I loved the fact that everything had a label by it. This place had all the supplies you would need and then some. The kitchen was very nice, it actually made me not want to eat out but make use of the awesome stove. Beds were very comfortable, the hot tub was definitely a nice bonus. I didn’t get a chance to use the tub because I couldn’t quite get the plug to seal and I was glad for it because it allowed me to experience how great of a shower this home has. You do hear the trains go by quite a bit but it’s not bad, it’s just background noise that you acknowledge every now and then. Their is nothing about this property that would cause me to not want to use it as a rental again....

Owner's Response: Wow, what a nice review! Thank you so much for the kind words. My family has always stayed in vacation rental homes over the years. As a guest I would often have difficulty figuring out light switches and looking for items. I have found that my guests really appreciate having labels on the light switches and cabinets. Thank you for the feedback on the tub drain, I will have to take a look at that. In the mean time I'm grad you enjoyed the walk-in shower, it's pretty amazing. The hot tub is usually a hit too. It's been a great ski season at Schweitzer, some of the best snow in the Northwest. Again, many thanks. Kristine

Clean and serene! Best nights sleep in a long time!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this cabin and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The beds were extremely comfortable and the house was clean and well organized. I had read the reviews which mention the train noise and I was a little worried because I am a light sleeper but I must admit that I hardly noticed them. I got amazingly restful sleep! The train traffic certainly did not affect our visit, in fact I found it rather nostalgic.

Kristine was very accommodating and easy to work with. I would recommend this property to others and have already booked a return visit.

Christmas Vacation

  • 4 of 5

This was a beautiful place for our family to have Christmas. Lots of space, well maintained, and even had a Christmas tree up. The bathrooms were stunning, beds were comfortable, and I especially liked how everything was very clearly labeled so you didn't have to waste time searching around for what you needed.

There were issues of a couple things not working. However, the owners were very quick in responding and clearing things up so that we could enjoy our stay. Even on Christmas Eve!!

Will definitely consider coming back.

It was a Happy Anniversary

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the property with two other couples for a total of four nights and had a wonderful time. It was our 30th Anniversary and found the property as enjoyable and comfortable as advertised.

All appointments necessary for the stay were there from kitchen utensils to board games.

The cabin is beautiful and well taken care of, the view is great, the quiet (when trains aren't running) complete, and the hot tub a wonderful relief after a day of hiking.

The "Welcome Aboard" binder does a great job of informing guests of everything they need to know about the location and useful information about the surrounding area which completes the excellent attributes of this property.

Four Stars vice Five because the trains took some getting used to, but the rest of the property's detail and function make up for occasional disruption.
