About the property

5 BR/3.5 BA, Sleeps 10 Luxurious Home with 110' Private Waterfront & Dock!

The White House Estate is that rare vacation home where luxury, privacy and waterfront live in harmony.

Perched on Pend Oreille Bay, the home’s plantation estate design offers 4,800 square feet of opulent living space, on nearly 2 acres, with a gentle, grassy slope to 110’ of exclusive waterfront. Ideal for family reunions, couples traveling together, privacy buffs and connoisseurs of beauty and fine things.

With sweeping views sunrise to sunset, the water and surrounding mountains call for your participation. Climb the dock’s slide and be inaugurated into the warm, summer waters of Lake Pend Oreille. Boat to town for that morning Starbucks latte. Waterski, wakeboard, or tow joy-shrieking kids on inner tubes. Sail when the wind picks up. Catch Rainbow Trout or Small Mouth Bass or leisurely explore the lake by canoe (provided).

Your cherished water toys will be safely moored on the private dock with lifts for your boat and Jet ski. Feast on s’mores and jovial conversations around the fire pit or soak your cares away in the large hot tub. Schweitzer Mountain is just 20 minutes away – where world class skiing, Stomping Grounds Terrain Park, and cross country trails beckon the winter sport enthusiasts. Incredible hikes surround this area or just watch the ever-changing water fowls and raptors that live here.

The White House home was designed by a former General of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and his southern-belle wife. The resulting 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath home pays tribute to antebellum history and neo classical, Federal architecture. Grand columns guard the entrance to the 3 story floor plan. The main floor living and family rooms provide lush and comfortable furnishings – in addition to fabulous views. Enjoy a fire, play piano or watch a movie. Audiophiles will appreciate the complete home music system which includes iPod hook ups and exterior speakers outside. A gourmet kitchen with granite countertops, gas range, and double ovens will enchant the epicureans – with lovely small appliances, dishes, oven & bake ware all provided.

A formal 8’ round dining table sets an ideal table to celebrate a milestone birthday or anniversary. Extensive decks and a wide variety of high quality outdoor furniture provide al fresco dining while overlooking this amazing lake.

Ascend the spiral staircase to 4 private and gorgeous bedrooms. The Master Suite features a stately king sized poster bed and sweeping views of Lake Pend Oreille. Gorgeous drapes (with black out features) keep the room enclosed and private for peace filled sleeping. Three additional bedrooms, each with exquisite linens on Queen sized beds, are all uniquely and stunningly decorated with fine furnishings and art.

Downstairs from the main level, you’ll find an additional plush family room with gas fireplace, Game room, second kitchenette and 5th bedroom with full bath. An immaculate pool table is ready for that next 8-ball challenge and a round poker table will host that Texas hold ‘em tournament. A secondary kitchenette with small eating area is wonderful for families or teens. The 5th bedroom has a Full to twin bunk bed, with trundle, a large desk and a full bathroom.

This private home is set back and surrounded by mature pine, spruce and oak trees, providing privacy from neighbors and a large grass-filled lawn for outdoor games. A complete play set with slide and swings will entertain younger children for hours, while the basketball hoop, hot tub, fire pit, and slide off the dock will occupy the playful adults and children alike.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My family and I spent a week here. We wanted to stay on the lake, close to town as not everyone skis. Schweitzer Mountain is very close --20-25 minutes away - skiing was great- NO lift lines. House has great hot tub for après ski. Home is very, very nice - extremely comfortable with views of the lake and mountains. Master bedroom is unbelievable! Watched bald eagles soaring and then fight over a fish. I would highly recommend this home for families and/or couples who want to stay in a really nice home.

The Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the best vacation that our family of 12 has ever had. The house was beautiful and all the furnishings were first quality. The view, the beach, the dock with a great slide, it had it all. This is the second time we have rented a house through Kellee and the only time we didn't, we were sorry! The staff is the best and took care of our every need. The house is even nicer than the pictures and we think this is one of the prime spots on the lake. It is close to town, both by road and water. If you're looking for a place to fall in love with, this is it. The hardest part of the week was packing up to go home. The walk down to the dock is easy but coming back up might be a little hard if hills are bad for you, but just go slow and you'll be fine. There is a fair amount of train traffic in the area but the house is well insulated and with the windows closed and the air on, we didn't even hear them. This is a terrific place managed by a terrific host. Lord willing, we'll be back again!

Schweitzer Mountain is just 20 minutes away and is the largest ski mountain in Idaho. Known for it's tree skiing, expert terrain, terrain park and cross country trails - Schweitzer is also amazing in the summer for hiking, mountain biking and berry picking.

Silverwood amusement and water park is just 30 minutes south of The White House Estate. A great family friendly park.
