About the Property
New 5 Bed/3 Bath Lodge With Awesome Lakefront Deck & Dock
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!
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

About: 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.
Why Dover Bay, Sandpoint, ID, USA:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
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.
