About John Kearns
We, John and Melody, purchased this property in 2013, remodeled it and have used it for summer and winter vacations. We want to offer others the chance to enjoy this property as we have. We live in Coeur' d alene Idaho.John loves to boat. Melody is a designer at heart and tries to make this a fun place for our kids and family to visit. Its been a place to help get our older kids off the electronics. Cell phones don't always work, so they often explore, play games and use the firepit to make smores. We have a growing collection of movies.We love to go to the Captains Table for dinners or stop for snack attacks at Odie's General Store in Garfield Bay. If we need more there's always the stores in Sandpoint, or the larger grocery stores, ore can stop at Pie Hut for dessert to go.

Why John Kearns chose Sagle
It's located on a beautiful and quiet Camp Bay, with a view of the Cabinet Mountains and expansive Lake Pend Oreille. Eagles soar and catch fish in the bay. The breezes pick up at night as do the waves. It is relaxing to hear the waves sounding like ocean waves (is your boat on the lift or securely tied up?) just outside the french door off the master bedroom.
What makes this House unique
This peaceful setting on Camp Bay offers visitors the chance to enjoy the unspoiled beauty of Lake Pend Oreille with only the soothing sound of a breeze through the trees and the occasional cry of an eagle flying overhead with a freshly caught fish in its talons. Come and enjoy this experience for yourself! Also, excellent fishing for huge Rainbows and Lake Trout in the largest lake in Idaho.

Great family getaway
House had great views, comfortable beds, well stocked, & nice dock for the boat. Family enjoyed the kayaks, fire pit & plenty of outdoor seating. Many extras.
Thank you Barry and family for the nice review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you'll return next year! John
Waterfront house on Camp Bay
We had the best vacation ever. John's house on the water was wonderful. Every thing we hoped it would be and what it was advertised to be. The use of the kayaks and fishing gear off the dock made for many enjoyable mornings and afternoons. Sitting on the deck over looking the Lake Pend Oreille at sunrise and sunset made the beginning and end of the day perfect. If you are looking for a wonderful , relaxing time in North Idaho, I can't recommend this place enough. Thank you John, for all the wonderful memories. We will be back in 2 years and hopefully rent from you again. No place I'd rather be. I highly recommend this house if you want to have the best vacation ever. Comfortable beds, pool table, kayaks, fishing gear, lots of bottled water, clean and wonderful.
Great vacation rental.
Beautiful, remote location. Owners take the extra effort to make our stay comfortable and pleasant. We loved staying there and will likely try to rent this property again.
Thank you Mark and family for your nice review! We really appreciate it and hope to see you again soon! John
Absolutely wonderful place to vacation to. John and his wife are two of the nicest people you will meet, their home is amazing with all the beautiful views of the lake. Very peaceful and quiet. A great place to get away from it all.
Thank you Shawn and Amanda (and Logan) for your wonderful review! Melody and I really appreciate it and hope you'll return soon. Thank you again! John and Melody
Spectacular Views and Amenities
You cannot beat the deck and dock views from this lakeside cabin. We stayed for 9 days with our 8 year old son and had a ball fishing off the dock (we caught about 15 fish over the week), kayaking (3 kayaks included with the property) relaxing on the decks, watching the bald eagles soar, and making s'mores around the firepit. The cabin is definitely remote - it's about 25 minutes to Sandpoint and we had no cell service, although the wifi worked well enough to send and receive emails and texts. The owners stocked the home with drinking water since the house has lake water, along with lots of nice touches like k-cup coffee, candy and popcorn for the kids, and tons of movies and games to keep everyone entertained. It is a long walk down to the lake, (or rather, up!) from the lake on the stairs, but we figured it helped us work off the s'mores! It was a great vacation and we look forward to visiting again.
Planning our trip back next year
Our family had a great time. With 3 teenage boys that were never bored, swimming, kayaking, billiard table, board games, fire pit for s’mores and WiFi enough to keep them entertained as there was no cell reception. Very peaceful setting with fantastic views. The owners are very friendly and made us feel welcomed with the little extras they provided. Thank you so much!!!
Thank you very much Emma and family for your wonderful review! We're very happy that you had a good time and hope that you'll return! Thanks again! John
Have fun on the lake. Many fun activities are adjacent to the house or nearby.
