About the property

5BR/5.5BA family home on 120' waterfront. Boat lift, guest house, luxury!

Tranquil Cedars is an amazing, hand-crafted home that integrates the natural beauty of wood, stone and water into a unique 5 bedroom luxury home with guest house. Located between Bottle Bay and Contest Point and nestled by century old cedar trees, this home sleeps 12 — and is ideal for multiple families and friends as a Sandpoint getaway.

An original Asian meets Pacific Northwest design, Tranquil Cedars melds reclaimed wood beams, logs, glass and stone elements — with an artisan’s craftsmanship — throughout this 3 story home. Enter through a traditional red front door. Historic, hard wood floors originally from century old Lewis and Clark High School in Spokane, beckon you into a living room of art and Lake Pend Oreille views. Slide open the glass doors and step out to a custom, 3 story cedar deck replete with built in benches, deck swings and lake views that stretch to the “7 Sister peaks” of Canada. Just below you is a gorgeous dry stack waterfall — symbolically interconnecting the house to an outdoor entertaining area, pebbled beach and private dock with boat lift.

The dining room table was handcrafted from Lewis and Clark gym benches. An old wood beam was preserved, meticulously distressed and used as a bar, overlooking the large kitchen with granite countertops and fully stocked amenities.

A fabulous master bedroom suite resides on the main level, offering a King bed, jacuzzi bath and separate shower. Upstairs you’ll find 2 Queen bedroom suites, each with a full bathroom and lake views. The lower level of the main home is designed for entertainment and relaxation. A cedar-lined ‘wet’ sauna will envelop and relax you, or enjoy a movie in the TV room, play a game of foosball, or enjoy board games and conversation in the secondary kitchen and bar.

A charming and secluded guest house invites extended family and friends to stay in comfort and privacy. Maple wood steps invite you up to another family room with kitchenette. Two additional private bedrooms (King bed, bunk bed twins respectively), plus a Queen futon, sleep an additional 6.

The concrete pathway meanders below a canopy of cedar trees to 120’ of private waterfront. Relax and enjoy appetizers lakeside as the kids paddle by in kayaks (provided). Firepit, croquet set, fishing poles all provided. Safely moor your boat on the Sunstream lift provided. Bottle Bay Resort and downtown Sandpoint are equidistance and just a few minutes away by boat or car. Hike Gold Mountain or Mineral Point trails - trailheads are just minutes from this home and great, family friendly hikes.

Tranquil Cedars is a home for families and friends to connect with the beauty and nature of the area inside and out.

We had a great time at the house, beautiful waterfront home with lots of room for the grandkids. The kayaks were a hit and the views were fantastic. Will definitely come back.

Magnificent - really it is magnificent - property that you won't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

You know that nagging feeling you have wondering if the expectations of a home you rent will live up to the feel you get from the pictures on the web... this is a home where it is more beautiful in actuality than the pictures can convey. It is wonderfully laid out, everything is top notch in the home, the views are spectacular everywhere and the management company is unbelievably friendly and helpful - the best group I have worked with in my experience.

You will need to stay for many days just to take in all its beauty from the many places, and decks, in the home you will want to sit and read and take in the lake. The tall cedars surrounding the home make it intimate, and catching a view of the bald eagles that alight from the trees makes for a great morning.

This is definitely the best home in Sandpoint in which we have stayed (been here 5 times now), and the experience makes us want to come back next week... or never leave. Thank you to the home owners and Daugherty Management - a wonderful stay and a great group to work with finding a rental home in Sandpoint. We will be back!

Beautiful and Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here!! Beautiful views, quiet, plenty of parking, having the 2 refrigerators was very convenient, beach towels and life jackets were appreciated along with the storage and floating supplies on the dock.

One of the master bathroom faucets didn't work. And the spiders are out of control at the house, rails and dock. We swept and swept to no avail. The next morning more spiders!

Owner's Response: Hello Norene, Thank you for staying with us at Tranquil Cedars. We had a very large tree removed (it had died) prior to your stay and I think the extra spiders on the deck came from this. We did have the property pest sprayed right after your departure. The master faucet was loose, sorry we didn't catch this when you were there, but thanks for letting us know. It's very important to myself and our team that we take care of anything immediately. Thanks again for staying with us. -Kellee

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home. The view from the deck was awesome and we saw so many eagles from there. The house is fully stocked so you really just need to think about what you want to eat for dinner. Would go back again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Peg and Sal. We were so happy your family from all around the US could come together and enjoy Sandpoint and the lake. Thank you for taking such great care of the home. -Kellee

Wonderful home!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Tranquil Cedars as a family of 7. The home is set in a beautiful winter wonderland (which turns into an amazing summer environment)! The layout of the home allows for groups of adults to all fit comfortably. The rental agency was readily available to answer any questions that we had during our stay. We took advantage of our winter stay and skied/snowboarded @ Schweirzer mountain. I would recommend the home to anyone who is looking to get away for a weekend or weeks at a time! We hope to go back to Tranquil Cedars. Wonderful wonderful home!!

So Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a long weekend at this home with my adult daughters and grandson. It was wonderful! We just wanted a quiet, relaxing weekend, and Tranquil Cedars was exactly that. We spent most of the weekend sitting on the dock, while my grandson splashed around in the lake. Every bedroom has views of the lake and deck access, as do the main floor and lower level family rooms. The kitchen is fully equipped, including a Keurig, espresso machine and stainless appliances. We didn't need anything that wasn't already there. There is a also gas grill on the deck. I only wish we had been able to stay longer!
