About the Property

3 bedroom, 1.5 bath, 1.5 story log home nestled in the woods and close to town

An incredible combination of being close to nature and close to downtown Sandpoint, Lake Pend O'reille, Schweitzer Resort and all the activities. From this private wooded sanctuary, it is an easy 4.5 mile drive along a residential road to the downtown shops, dining and City Beach.

Perfect 'cabin-in-the-woods' setting with 5 acres of beautiful mature trees, a trail to a pristine creek, and lots of wildlife. The expansive decks and covered porch are ideal for listening to the creek, barbecuing, soaking in the hot tub, enjoying campfires, or lounging in the sun. No other homes are visible from the yard, which enhances the feeling of privacy.

This cozy home has plenty of room for relaxing, dining and spending time together. The great room contains recliners, sofa, a glass-front wood stove, and a 6-seat dining table. There is another 6-seat table in the kitchen. There is a main floor bedroom with queen bed and attached bathroom and the loft holds two sleeping areas and a half bath. One upstairs bed area has a queen log bed and twin bed. The other bed area has a twin bed and a twin log bunkbed.

Whether you spend your day adventuring around the area, hiking, shopping, dining, boating, skiing, or simply relaxing and not going anywhere, this home offers a wonderful feeling of comfort and beauty.

Please note that as this is intended as a peaceful getaway, there is no television or internet at the cabin. There is cell phone service. During winter months, a four-wheel drive vehicle is highly recommended.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We have lived in far north Idaho near the Canadian border for ten years, coming via Alaska and the midwest (Go Packers!). We have built two of our own log homes. We love this area and all it has to offer. We particularly enjoy hiking with our dogs, Telemark and cross- country skiing, snowmobiling, and paddling. Jim builds log furniture (featured in the cabin) and plays the banjo and guitar. Lisa has done extensive backcountry travel in the region, loves to garden and hike with the dogs.

Why the Owner Chose Sandpoint, ID, USA:
This cabin is located in such an ideal place. It is surrounded by about everything there is to enjoy about the Sandpoint area. The cabin and property have a really great vacation vibe. We feel it is a great place to share with others who appreciate the area.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Sitting on the deck and listening to the creek and the birds in the dappled sunlight.... cozying up to a warm fire in the woodstove after a fall hike...maximizing the long summer days with a late evening campfire and s'mores.... making waffles for breakfast!...soaking in the hot tub after a long day skiing at Schweitzer the kids a chance to sleep in a log bunkbed...biking into town for the day to shop and dine...strolling down to the creek to look for birds...the list goes on...
