Please note: there is a daily charge to park a boat at this home, that is not included with the rental.

The home is ideal for entertaining as it provides a wrap-around patio and lounge chairs right on the lake! A mud room will allow for easy storage of fishing poles and life jackets when not in use.

The kitchen is well-stocked for fish bakes or summer barbecue prep. Enjoy meals as a group at the breakfast bar or drop-leaf dining table for three.

When it's time to hit the water you'll love that your boat can be parked right outside your home! Lake Pend Oreille offers seemingly endless miles of fantastic shoreline to boat, waterski, or swim and you're within easy access to Farragut State Park, which offers prime hiking and mountain biking trails. You might even see a mountain goat and bald eagles if you climb high enough! When not on the lake or in the great outdoors, make the 26-mile trip to Sandpoint where you can enjoy antique shops, art galleries, fine dining, and more!

This adorable floating home is perfect for your next summer escape!

Good place to get away!

  • 4 of 5

The float house was very cute and it was clean. It provided everything we needed (minus washer/dryer if anyone is looking to stay for an extended time). There is also only 1 AC unit all the way upstairs in the top bedroom. Everywhere else in the house, there are only fans. At night, it cools off pretty quick so it was comfortable to sleep (and even got pretty cold some nights). The instructions and information on getting to the float house and accessing the keys were easy to follow. The parking seemed to be a first come first serve even though we were supposed to have designated spots. We did not have any issues finding a place to park though. It is a very small town and the people are very friendly. The people in the neighboring float homes were incredible nice and welcoming. If you are looking to go out on the lake, there is an info shack that will help with renting boats but they are closed on Sunday so definitely do it ahead of time (we found out too late when we walked up to a closed info and rental shack). There is VERY little service if any so it is a good idea to do any texting, emailing, calling before you arrive. It is a very close drive to Silverwood Theme Park and other museums as well. Overall we had a good stay.

Could use some definite updating

  • 2 of 5

Only two burners worked on stove and one of those "smoked" a lot when turned on, so we didn't use but one small burner AND that one didn't always turn off without having to fiddle with knob. Upper bedroom had no windows, thus no ventilation. Even with portable AC was VERY hot and stuffy. Stairway leading to upper level had non working light fixture so quite dark in evening going up and down. Could definitely use some updating in and out. Dark paneling on lower level and on dark side even with blinds open. We DID enjoy upper outside porch area. Spent most of time there when "home" in evenings.

Okay Place

  • 3 of 5

A bit dated, but worked for us. Just know you will have to pay for a boat slip because one is not provided. There is also no where to swim from the property. It is in the middle, other boat houses beside and behind, deck is not private. Inside is set up weird, like it’s been added onto. You have to go through a screen door up to the deck and then there is a loft with a king bed. I’ve never stayed in a boat house so not sure if that’s how they all are. We couldn’t get the tv upstairs to work and it’s in a sitting room, no tv in the loft room.

It's an ok place.

  • 2 of 5

It's ok. But its old and a few new things, like tv's, and quality outdoor furniture would help. I'm not going to say the place is complete crap because it was ok. But the owners need to organize and modernize the place if they are going to continue to rent it out. I would not stay here again as it is nothing special.
