Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Erin and Thomas are Canadians that wish they lived in Sandpoint. We have vacationed in Idaho for the last 15 years starting with tents at Sam Owen Campground, a tent trailer at Round Lake campground, a travel trailer at Spring Point Campground and then found this gem of a place off of Lakeshore Drive. Sandpoint is our happy place and if you havent experienced Sandpoint yet, i bet it will become one of yours as well.

Why the Owner Chose Sagle, ID, USA:
Finding Murphy's Retreat was the luckiest day for us. The house had been on the market for 6 months and we ended up purchasing it in February / March. We knew right away what it could offer even though it was the end of winter. Our first goal was to replace the deck and then in 2015 we built a stone patio. These 2 projects have altered the place such that there is a focus on enjoying the outdoors. The location is off of Lakeshore drive which is a beautiful area with many nice homes in the area. It is also very close in proximity to all common amenities.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The unique benefits Murphy's Retreat offers is truly the many places you can sit and enjoy what outdoor Idaho offers. The deck is oversized at ~1000 square feet and the stone patio is even larger.
