About the property

New 5 Bed/3 Bath Lodge With Awesome Lakefront Deck & Dock

The Lakeshore Lodge is a stunning, 5-bedroom retreat on the shores of beautiful Lake Pend O'Reille. Located at the end of a tranquil, traffic-free lane, Lakeshore Lodge offers blissful seclusion yet is only 3 minutes from the Dover Bay community and 7 minutes from Sandpoint, Idaho - voted America's 'Most Beautiful Small Town' by USA Today and Rand McNally.

Lakeshore Lodge is all North Idaho - big beams, big trees, big views - but step inside and you'll discover a retreat that is more chic than rustic: the wood and stainless steel kitchen; the ridiculously comfortable leather sofa set; the elegant tiled bathrooms; the spacious bedrooms (all but one facing the lake); the ample second-floor deck; the jacuzzi etc.

Just a few steps from the front door brings you to our private deck and L-shaped dock. You'll enjoy this special spot all year round: swimming, boating, paddling or just admiring the glorious views across the lake with a glass of wine in hand.

The expansive backyard is big enough for a family soccer match and includes a large jungle gym for the little ones. The back deck is perfect for barbecuing and has a large jacuzzi for relaxing tired muscles after a long day skiing at Schweitzer or hiking the area's numerous trails.

The Lakeshore Lodge has five bedrooms: two on the ground floor and three (including the master) on the second floor. The standard bed set up is three queens, one twin and a double set of bunk beds (big enough for adults.) We've also got a high-quality queen blow-up bed for bigger groups. Two big families? Three couples? No problem.

It has three bathrooms: one downstairs (2 sinks, 1 shower, 1 toilet) and two upstairs (master en suite with 2 sinks + shared bathroom for the other two bedrooms.)

Other appliances / amenities of note: LCD TV with cable, DVD player, wine fridge (I can stock with bottles from my collection if you're interested), gas fireplace with hearth.

Another plus: my property manager is your next door neighbor, and my relatives are all over town. There will always be somebody who can help if you have any issues or need local guidance on where to go and what to see!

About Owner / Property Manager

Daddy Brixen grew up in Sandpoint and always dreamed of having a place on the lake. Mommy Brixen was born in Bangkok, moved to the USA with her family and later met Daddy at a Mexican restaurant in Hong Kong. Now Daddy and Mommy have got four boys (Tai, Logan, Drake & Kiva) who absolutely love the Lakeshore Lodge.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this lodge in 2012

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Dover Bay

The first time you walk out on that dock, you'll understand. It is very, very difficult to find such a private, quiet spot on the lake that is located so close to town. I know, because I spent the first half of my life exploring Lake Pend O'Reille and the mountains surrounding it.

What makes this lodge unique

The Lakeshore Lodge will be my legacy to my four sons and their families. And I hope it can become a part of your treasured family memories as well.

Stunning home!!

  • 5 of 5

Best VRBO we have ever stayed at, and we have stayed at numerous ones throughout the world. The house was fully stocked with everything you may need. Beautiful and clean with every amenity, and our families very much enjoyed our short stay. Hope to return very soon!

Beautiful house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We love this house. It has plenty of room for a large family and the lake access is really convenient. The large yard is a big plus along with the multiple porches and outdoor areas.

Beautiful lake home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week on the lake.

We especially enjoyed the dock and sitting areas on the lawn facing the lake.

The location and views are amazing.

The house feels very new and modern and clean and is fully stocked for cooking. The house met all of our expectations and more.

We loved it and hope to make it back again next year.

Really appreciate the help from our Vrbo rep as well.

Beautiful house in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family of grandchildren, children and grandparents is sizable; 12 in all. So when we gather for a week each summer in one home, it’s imperative that it has enough elbow room for all.

This house is perfect in every way. It’s easy to get to town and grocery, on the lake with private dock, beautifully constructed with many amenities. And it has a large, spacious kitchen.

We’ve booked again for next year because it was such a wonderful place to stay.
