About the property

2 Bedroom 2 bath; 1700 sq ft Cabin in the Woods.

Welcome to paradise!!! Dover Bay is a lake focused community just 3 miles west of Sandpoint Idaho. USA today named Sandpoint one of the top 10 picture perfect mountain towns and a Norman Rockwell meets Ansel Adams Classic. A four seasons town with so much to offer.

This luxury 2 bed 2 bath 1700 sq ft cabin is perfect for the family that wants all the conveniences of home. We have designed this cabin as our second home not as a rental with high-end furnishings and a kitchen that any gourmet chef would appreciate. Stainless steel Kitchen Aid appliances with gas range and all the small appliances you would expect. The dining room has enough room to seat 8 comfortably.

The master bedroom and bath are both tastefully decorated. New king size bed and frame added in November 2015. The ensuite has granite counters with double sinks and even two separate shower heads in the huge walk-in shower. Full access to the large patio from master as well.

The second bedroom has a queen bed and a set of bunk beds that's sleep 3. Double on bottom and single on top. Great room for the kids or a large group. The sofa in the living room is also a sofa bed if more beds are needed.

The second bath contains a shower/tub and full washer and dryer.

The living room has a large HD TV with full cable and wireless internet. Great open concept floor plan for the perfect family vacation.

The outside wrap around 3 sided deck is where we spend most of our time with more than 800 sq ft of covered deck space. The deck can be accessed from 4 entry points throughout the home. The outdoor fireplace is heaven on those cool nights and the gas BBQ makes for great memories in any season.

Dover Bay also has a full marina, restaurant/bar, store, (with beer sales) canoe, kayak, paddle board rentals, tennis courts, pool, hot tub and fitness center. (We do supply pool passes for our guests from June 15 to Sept. 15th each year. If you are staying with us outside that window passes can be purchased from the marina at a reasonable rate) This is all within a 5 min walk from the home. There are more than 9 miles of hiking and biking trails throughout the community and even a fully paved biking/running path all the way to Sandpoint if you are feeling adventurous. We purchased two cruiser bikes for your use as well. You can park the car on arrival and not touch it again until you leave if you so desire.

If its winter that you prefer Schweitzer (14 miles door to door) was just named in the Top 10 best ski towns in the west by Sunset Magazine. With more than 2900 acres of ski-able terrain and close to 2500 ft of vertical drop Schweitzer has something for everyone. If you are into cross country skiing there is more than 40 km of trails to choose from. A true 4 seasons resort with mountain biking and zip lining in the summer as well.

You are going to love this place so much you might end up buying like we did.

About Kyle Derzaph

After spending so much time in the Sandpoint area we knew this was the place that we wanted to vacation for the rest of our lives. A huge lake and one of the best ski area's in the west made the choice so easy for us. Warm summers and mild winters makes Sandpoint the best year around retreat in any season. We hope you enjoy the area as much as we do.

Kyle Derzaph purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Kyle Derzaph chose Sandpoint

You can't beat Dover Bay when it comes to amenities. Swim, bike, tennis, beach volleyball, marina and restaurants all within walking distance.

What makes this cabin unique

The wrap around 800 sqft three sided deck with custom built in fireplace sold us on this property. We sit by the fire most evenings even when the temperature drops in the fall.

A place of tranquility...

  • 5 of 5

Walking in to Kyle's place is like a home away from home. We were fortunate to be able to stay most of March, and although weather not great always we had such a great time. Trying to possibly relocate and being able to have a beautiful place to be while researching made everything so much better. We love Dover Bay and easy access to Sandpoint. Home is very clean and has everything you need. Beautiful deck that although cold, we enjoyed everyday by the fire. Bikes are wonderful addition as bike path to town is right there. This is our second time at this place and we hope to return soon. Can't say enough.

Warm and inviting. It felt like Christmas morning walking in!!!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were warm, inviting and clean. The descriptions along with the house pictures were spot on but nothing compares until you arrive and find the serenity and peacefulness of the community and surroundings.

The owners were complete on details and information about its location and proximity to tourists' point of interests.

It's a straight shot from Seattle. Snow on Schweitzer was blower and we'll be back next winter!!

Thank you

Peaceful winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

Spent about 8 weeks over the winter in this wonderful cabin. It was a wonderful escape from Big City living. A snowy cocoon for a much needed re-charge. House is situated on the lot where it felt so private in the winter but still close to the action. It was spacious and well furnished. Really is a nice place with open concept living. Plenty of sleeping spaces. Large dining table. Kitchen has a great gas stove plus a big grill on deck. Never felt like we were roughing it. Met several of the neighbors while on walks, all very nice. Enjoyed Sandpoint and started feeling like a local. Everthing is just 10 min away. Lots of grocery stores, restaurants and coffee shops. Kyle was great to work with and now he feels like a friend. Enjoyed watching deer walk by the deck in the evenings and even a moose eating in a neighbor's front yard. Garage kept car clean, fireplaces in and outside so warm and cozy. Kyle has netflix but we brought an HDMI cable so we could access our home cable/DVR system. Will have to come again in the summer time. Highly recommend this place!

Lovely home

  • 4 of 5

Spent a peaceful Thanksgiving holiday here with our family of four. We enjoyed walks through the community and sitting on the back patio on crisp fall mornings. We used the kitchen a lot and found everything we needed...including some spices. Kyle (homeowner) emailed us during our stay to make sure all was going well. That is unusual and was so appreciated.

Relaxing and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled from Arizona to meet up at this lovely house to spend time with our daughter and grandkids from Montana. It felt like home and we had everything we could want or need to enjoy our stay. The area is especially beautiful and more so with the fall colors during our visit🍁󠐠We enjoyed walking on the trails and going to city beach where the kiddos got to run and play. It was clean and comfortable and had plenty of pillows and towels, which I personally find lacking in other rentals. We ate at Connies in town and really enjoyed our food, as well as, Panhandle Pies for a pie to take home for dessert, which was wonderful. The shops in town are fun to stroll through and find unique gifts or clothes. The owner Kyle is very nice and accomodating if you have any needs or questions. Enjoy.

A wondeful, relaxing place to be. Perfect .

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Cabins in the woods. Kyle was so helpful and so gracious. The home itself is beautiful and in a perfect spot to explore the area. It was also very conducive for having two couples stay. We loved having the bikes available to use as well as all the paths to walk on around area. Didn't want to leave....We'll definitely return!
