Welcome to Lakeshore Cottage! A bright, cheerful, beach bungalow with 100’ of waterfront, private dock with NEW boatlift — all in a fantastic location.
This 4 bedroom, 2 bath home is perfect for 1-2 families. In summer, all will appreciate the lush green grass that wraps around the yard, rolling down to meet the private dock and the warm and shallow waters of Lake Pend Oreille. Located just west of Long Bridge, there are few private homes where you can walk or bike to Sandpoint (just 2 miles away). Several bicycles, kayaks, stand up paddle boards and full house air conditioining make this an ideal 'getaway' home!
Inside, the floor plan is open and the furnishings have a bright and welcoming feel. Wide-planked wainscoting is painted white, and the beach-themed decor connects you with the lake and mountain views outside.
A large, open kitchen, with stainless steel appliances, is fully-appointed — we even stock the kitchen staples (flour/sugar/oil & spices). Two dining tables provide seating for 10 inside, and a beautiful Teak outdoor table and chairs are set up under the large, covered deck for meals outside. A BBQ with two propane tanks keeps the focus on easy-grilling.
Two main floor bedrooms can be used for couples or families with smaller children. Upstairs you’ll find two additional bedrooms: a cozy twin with trundle and a large family/bonus bedroom. If the kids, grandkids or cousins all want to be together — this spacious room is perfect! In addition to the Full-size bed, this huge room also has a Twin-size bunk bed and 2 Twin beds, for a total of 5 separate beds in just the one room! There’s also a TV and DVD player for ‘quiet time’ movies. Family games, puzzles and books all provided as well.
In winter you’ll enjoy a real wood-burning fireplace in the living room as you look straight out to Schweitzer Mountain (12 miles away). Pick from the family movies provided and enjoy popcorn while watching the new 60” HD TV. High speed, secured Wi-Fi is also available throughout the home.
Summer. The locals say: ‘We’re going to the lake,’ and you’re invited to play here. Start a cannon ball contest from the dock. Explore the shoreline by kayak (provided) or fish for rainbow trout. The lower stone patio provides additional shade as well as a custom fire pit. Recall the day’s best memories over a crackling fire while making home-made s’mores.
Rent a boat, jet skis or stand-up-paddle boards. Mooring whips on the dock provide temporary moorage, while the boat lift being installed for Summer 2018 will be best for extended/overnight mooring. Explore Sandpoint’s bike trails. ‘Hike it’, ‘spa it’, or ‘shop it’. Make the most of your time here by staying in a central location. Our concierge staff can provide recommendations based on your interests.
