About the Property

Beautiful views, custom dock, and amenities for all ages in all seasons.

Location: Laclede, Idaho.
Near Sandpoint, Idaho (15 minutes), Spokane, Washington (closest airport, 1 hour), and Coeur d'Alene Idaho (1 hour).

Custom built lakefront home and dock to accommodate a vacation year-round. Beautiful scenic views with access to the river from the house, having Riley Creek Campground just down the road and Sandpoint/Schweitzer Mountain just a short drive away make this location a site full of almost any opportunity desired.

The summer is filled with water activities like boating, paddle boarding, swimming, fishing, and kayaking, while the winter offers a full list ranging from skiing to hunting to snowshoeing.

Summer Season:
The water level will typically be up sometime between Memorial Day and mid to late June depending upon expected snow melt run-off. We offer a 30 foot dock which has a remote controlled, covered boat lift, as well as room for two other boats on boat whips, and two jet ski lifts. When the water level rises it is only a 1-2 foot jump from the dock into the water where kids and adults love to swim and paddle board. Approximately 3-3.5 feet deep at the most shallow portion of dock and 15 feet deep at end of dock. Great water ski area, especially if you are willing to wake up early or go on a weekday! If you'd rather not jump into the water you can walk a few minutes down to Riley Creek Campground where there is a beach area, playground, and large grassy area to play in.

Sandpoint, ID is just a 15 minute drive away, or 10 miles by boat. There are a ton of local shops, breweries and wineries, and a beach area where you can rent water equipment.

Fall Season:
The trees turn color in the fall and this is a great time to keep a lookout for hawks, eagles, and other birds along the river. This is one of our favorite times of the year to enjoy the cooler weather, pick apples from the trees in the backyard, and utilize the gas fireplace in the evening. There is an outside fire pit and hottub for use, and it's a wonderful time to go on a hike in Sandpoint. We love sitting by the fire and watching the Seahawks or playing board games and watching movies!

Winter Season:
Enjoy the gas fireplace after a good day of skiing, snowboarding, or tubing at Schweitzer Mountain, or go snowshoeing or cross country skiing in the untouched snow at Riley Creek Campground right down the road. Property is 20 minutes from base of Schweitzer Mountain and a 2-car garage is available so you can park inside. My kids love coming to the cabin before they go to Schweitzer, followed by the hot tub when they return home for the evening. There is plenty of room, as well as snow, to build some snowmen or have a great snowball fight!

Spring Season:
Spring is a great season to visit because of the quietness in the area. If you are looking for a place to get away and soak up some family time this is the perfect place. Make some coffee in the morning, go on a hike, play games, hottub, and watch the wildlife.

We have a professional property manager and the property is professionally cleaned between each rental.

For reservations and rates, please contact us at the phone number below.

Watercraft rentals are available in Sandpoint, Idaho (power boats, kayaks, paddle boards, fishing boats, skis, wakeboards, tow tubes, and other safety equipment). Ski equipment can be rented at Schweitzer Mountain.

Reservation agreements will be sent to our travelers.

Thank you,

Riley Creek Campground

Car: Recommended

We are located a few houses down from Riley Creek Campground which offers a beach area, playground, boat launch, and evening stories by the Idaho Forest Service during the summer months. We have a dock to swim off of with a boat lift, two other areas to dock a boat, and two jet ski lifts at our home. Sandpoint, ID, 15 minutes away, is a beautiful place to check out some local shops, go beer/wine tasting, head to the beach, or go on a hike. If you are looking for a bigger shopping trip, Spokane, WA has many malls, casinos, and bars, and Silverwood Theme Park is also only about an hour away.

During the winer Riley Creek Campground is untouched and a beautiful place to snow show or cross country ski. Have a bonfire in our fire pit outside close to the hottub, or stay inside by the fire watching movies, reading books, or playing games.

This area is full of activities, amenities, and opportunities for a wonderful vacation no matter the season.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I am a retired shop teacher who likes to build, renovate, and rent properties and my wife is a teacher as well. We finished building this home when our kids were in middle/high school and our family loves to enjoy time away from the busy city of Spokane and chaos of life to come spend time together relaxing at this home in Idaho, no matter what the season.

Why the Owner Chose Laclede, ID, USA:
This property has all the amenities you might need - spacious with plenty of sleeping areas and bathrooms, washer/dryer, appliances and cookware, air conditioning, hottub, firepit, dock with space for boats and jet skis, etc. It's close enough to Spokane where driving to the big city doesn't feel like a hassle, but far enough away to make you feel disconnected. It's a short walk to Riley Creek Campground with a beach area and playground, and a short enough drive to Sandpoint for local shops or to go to Schweitzer Mountain. It's beautiful in any season and there's no limit on the amount of outdoor activities you can find to do in this area.
