This home was built to accommodate my family year round. The summer is filled with water activities including boating, skiing, swimming, kayaking, while the winter offers a full list of activities ranging from hunting to snowshoeing. Our private dock includes custom flags, remote control boat lift (enclosed), and dock whips to secure your friend’s boat while they visit and protect it from harm.

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. 30 foot dock with approximately 20 feet of moorage and will fit boats up to 22 feet in length. When the water level rises there is no dry beach, but it is only steps from dock into water, with a nice sandy bottom. Approximately 3 to 3.5 feet deep at shallowest portion of dock and 15 feet deep at end of dock. Great water ski area.

Fall Season:
The Tamarack, Quaking Aspen, Birch, and other trees turn color in the fall. This is one of our favorite times of the year to enjoy the cooler weather, pick apples, and utilize the gas fireplace in the evening. There is an outside fire pit and sitting area that we love as well. Late fall is a great time of year to watch the waterfowl, hawks, eagles, and migratory birds along the river. Bring your binoculars and camera.

Winter Season:
Enjoy the gas fireplace after a good day of skiing at Schweitzer Mountain, large trees, and views over the water as the snow falls. Property is 20 minutes from base of Schweitzer Mountain. 2-car garage is available so you can park inside. My kids love the cabin for a trip to the mountain, followed by the hot tub when they return home for the evening.

Spring Season:
Spring has a lot of surprises and is another great season to visit. You can tell that spring has arrived when you begin to hear the eagles, hawks, cranes, and other birds begin to chirp in the mornings while the weather gets steadily warmer. As the ice drips and the woods become alive with wildlife, wake up and enjoy it with a warm cup of coffee or tea. You’ll enjoy watching the nesting activities of many birds in the area, especially the geese and eagles. We’ve seen as many as five eagles at one time going after their food, which you can watch from the porch or the warm comfort of the living room. This time of year, since the water level is down, the sandy beach is exposed. On hot days the kids will enjoy playing in the shallow water, while parents can stay on the dry beach and enjoy some of the first sun of the year.
We have a professional property manager, and the property is professionally cleaned.
For reservations and rates, please contact us at the phone number below.
Live music is available.
Watercraft rentals are available in Sandpoint, Idaho. Power boats, kayaks, paddle-boards, fishing boats skis, wakeboards, tow tubes, and other safety equipment are available.
Reservation agreements will be sent to our travelers.

Thank you,
Raymond Harding
