The main house is a furnished 3 bdm / 2 bath custom home with two fireplaces, in the living room and master bedroom, and one wood burning stove. Wood will be supplied. The master bath boasts a large two person leg tub with a wood fired hot tub off the master bedroom deck. The home was completely remodeled in 2005 and has a real county feel with a contemporary flare, including concrete counter-tops and fireplace surrounds along with wood and stucco custom finishes. The master bedroom is furnished with a king size bed, nightstands and a dresser. The other two bedrooms have a full and king bed with a queen size futon couch in the music room. If the kiddos don't mind sleeping on the floor, (3' tri-fold foam pads supplied) the home can comfortably sleep 12+.


This 1500 sq ft Community building is perfect for those larger workshops and gatherings. Equipped with a generous kitchen and great indoor or outdoor eating areas all nestled next to a bountiful garden.


Minutes away explore Lake Pend Oreille by kayak, canoe, sail or motor boat. Lounge on the beach or play disc golf, horse shoes and ping pong. Fish for small mouth bass across the road at Gamlin Lake, Ski the slopes of Schweitzer and then soak your cares away in the wood fired hot tub. Don't forget a visit to USA and Rand McNallys most beautiful small town in America, Sandpoint Idaho, just 30 minutes away!
