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

The living room has a large HD TV with full cable/Netflix 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. 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 Dover Bay

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.

One of our best vacations!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a VRBO, so we didn't know what to expect. We couldn't be more pleased with our stay. Kyle has excellent communication and follow through. We did a bike ride into Sandpoint every morning to come back to swim in the pool. The Dover Bay community had a lot to offer for our family. We rented a pontoon boat for the day, which was an amazing experience. My family can't wait to come back!!

Beautiful and quiet!

  • 4 of 5

Dover Bay is beautiful in the fall. Nice, quiet location that feels private but within walking distance to all the activity. Wrap around deck and outside fireplace we’re favorites.

Comfy and Cozy

Coming back to the house at the end of the day, turning on the fireplace, and putting our feet up was exactly what we were looking for. Great location!

Great times in Dover Bay

We enjoyed an end of summer get away at Dover Bay. We had a minor hiccup with cleaning but Kyle the owner took immediate care and resolved it. Indeed from there he went above and beyond to make things right. We will be back.

Great all around location

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th time renting this particular home and the first time from Kyle, the current owner. Kyle's timely communications, both via email and phone, provided us with the security of knowing we would retain the great rental experience from our prior times at Dover Bay Resort. The home has everything you need + add in the wonderful resort its located within + its close proximity to Sandpoint for groceries, shopping and restaurants = ideal summer vacation rental!!!!

Thanks Kyle for helping us continue to build great family summer memories.
