About the property

Huge family-oriented home in Ponder Point with 6BR/6.5 BA, private waterfront.

Welcome to Eagle’s View in Ponder Point.

This luxury 6 bedroom home is where families and friends come to cherish each other and celebrate lake living. If your group is large, you need a nice, luxury home where you can enjoy together time, but also have room to play, eat and rest well. Eagle’s View is that perfect place for family reunions, summer ‘on the lake’ vacations, Schweitzer skiing, or ‘girl’s getaway’ group. Sleeps up to 20 in beds!

Located just 3 miles from downtown Sandpoint — this home is peacefully situated on nearly 2 acres. Apple and cherry trees rim the flat front yard of this quiet neighborhood. The lake-side grounds are mature, private and enormous — with a gentle, green grass slope and/or stairs from the deck, unfolding 100’ of private “play-oriented” waterfront. Tastefully enclosed fencing keeps kids safely in, but does not impede the spectacular views of massive Lake Pend Oreille.

Stepping inside, you’ll enjoy 6,100 sq. ft., of thoughtfully designed rooms and furnishings. The entry leads to a large, nearly pentagonal-shaped Great Room with soaring, cedar-lined ceilings. Plentiful windows perfectly frame panoramic views of Pend Oreille Bay, Gold Mountain and Sandpoint. Aptly named, at Eagle’s View you’ll delight in the many Bald & Golden Eagles who perch in the pine trees outside or soar gracefully by.

The large and functional kitchen has plenty of space for conversation, food prep and cooking. Enjoy dinner around the classic American-styled, rectangular table — or better yet eat outside on the huge deck. Outside heaters can be turned on to ward off an early or late season chill.

Host a family “Scrabble” tournament, game or movie night in the high tech Theatre room. Push a button and a screen quietly descends from the ceiling, with window blinds automatically darkening the room. 3 couches, plus a game table make this the perfect play room for adults and children alike. Satellite TV and a variety of family games, plus Blu-ray player all included. The Theatre room also doubles as a 6th bedroom — as 2 of the couches are Queen sleepers. A full bathroom makes this a great overflow, teen or family suite bedroom.

Across the hallway, a custom lake-view office provides desks for two, and is that quiet area when work or a conference call beckons. High speed, secure Wi-Fi provided.

The master bedroom is ideal on the main level. The King bed is situated to welcome a sunrise and has ‘his’ and ‘her’ dressing closets, large double shower with rainfall shower head, plus jacuzzi tub. An additional twin bed resides in one of the large dressing closets for keeping a young child close by if need be.

Downstairs you’ll find 4 additional private bedrooms — with a variety of king, queen and twin bed configurations that accommodate another 11 people in beds! Each bedroom has a FULL bathroom.

Step outside to the lower deck, where the hot tub is recessed into the decking. No longer will you have to plod barefoot in cold or messy weather.

Luxury linens are provided for all beds and baths, with TVs in every bedroom and laundry facilities on each floor.

From May through October, you’ll spend most of the day outside enjoying the lake and surrounding mountains. Two enormous decks facilitate this with separate sitting areas that you’ll enjoy for meals, reading, wine and appetizers, sunsets, bird watching, sun soaking and the joyful exuberance of kids creatively frolicking outside all day. 4th of July is special here as Sandpoint’s City Beach hosts a fantastic fireworks display.

The water is clear and warm in summer and a private dock has 2 jet ski lifts. (There is *not* a boat lift at this time) Fish for rainbow trout right off the dock or enjoy your favorite water sport in the beauty of Lake Pend Oreille Bay. Boat to dinner or explore the amazing beauty of this incredible 43 mile long lake.

Eagle’s View in Ponder Point is located in an ideal ‘guest’ neighborhood. Safe and friendly, the neighborhood welcomes families, walking and biking. The charming town of Sandpoint is just 3 miles away and Schweitzer Mountain, just 11 miles away. In addition to location, Eagle’s View faces south with sweeping, panoramic views east to west. Sunrises and sunsets are glorious — with the flora and fauna changing seasonally.

Great place for multi-family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful spacious lakefront house with great views from almost all rooms.

Staff was very friendly and was prompt in responding to a kitchen leak situation.

Kitchen is well equipped to host big groups however can use some appliance upgrading.

Highlight of our stay was a concierge dinner service ! The chef prepared amazing food catered to our needs right in front of us while we enjoyed the beautiful views from the living room. We would love to go back in summer.

Great multi-family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We have an annual trip with multiple families, trying out different areas of ID and MT over the past few years. Eagle's View is by far the best home we've rented and we'll be back! The home is in great shape, it had everything we needed in terms of kitchen supplies, the mattresses were comfortable and the fact that each room has a full en-suite bathroom was icing on the cake. We enjoyed being close to Sandpoint so we could get take-out, but made most meals at home, enjoying them out on the spacious deck. The surrounding community is lovely and some of us enjoyed morning runs on the quiet roads each day. We rented a boat and water sport equipment in town, which was easy as it was only a 10 minute boat ride to the marina. Thank you for helping us to create such great memories!

Wonderful family getaway with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently had the opportunity to stay at Eagle's View and we absolutely loved it. From the moment we opened the door we were blown away by the view from every room. We all enjoyed how very comfortable and clean the house was and we really appreciated the obvious great attention to detail. The updated master bedroom and bath and the theater room is nothing short of amazing. We spent a lot of time in the house due to the weather and ski conditions weren't the best but we didn't mind one bit with a home this gracious. We will definitely be coming back.

The decks are perfect for happy hour or just reading a book! would be a great place for a family reunion because there is so much space! our reunion with girlfriends gave us plenty of room to relax, entertain and just be!!

I have spent several beautiful weeks in this GORGEOUS home over the last five years and it's something I look forward to with great anticipation every time... The house is beautifully appointed, yet so very warm and homey and the view of the Lake is spectacular from every angle, whether it be from the large high beamed ceiling living room, the inviting dining room and most of the bedrooms - all of which are artfully designed. We also spent many lovely evenings on the large deck outside overlooking the Lake as the sun came down... An extra special treat is the elegant Entertainment room with it's large screen to watch our favorite movies in luxurious and comfy chairs. This spectacular home is also in a GREAT location and close to all the wonderful shopping and dining in the main part of town. We also thoroughly enjoy the Farmer's Market in the heart of town every Saturday. Definitely one of the best I have been to with incredible produce and home made products... The combination of charming Sandpoint and this outstanding home is a total TREAT... I couldn't recumbent this exquisite experience more highly.
