About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Open Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Sunlight streams through the many windows in this clean, comfortable, attractively decorated, three bedroom (+ loft), two bath home that is perfect for family vacations. Quality linens, dishes, furnishings and supplies abound, there are no hand me downs in this well stocked cottage! The large fenced backyard and deck is a safe place for kids and pets so you can relax under the huge willow tree or barbecue while the children and pets play in safety. Or sit out on the front porch and chat with the friendly neighbors. In the winter moose have been seen walking down the sidewalk in front of the house and 'pruning' the shrubs in the backyard!

This desirable Lake Street home is located on a corner lot in the heart of Sandpoint. The house is within walking distance to all the great restaurants, the farmers market, entertainment and shopping in downtown Sandpoint. A large health food grocery store is just a block away. A short five block walk to swimming and sunning on the Lake at City Beach! Or use the bikes that come with the rental.

Sandpoint lies on the shores of Idaho’s largest lake, the 43 mile-long Lake Pend Oreille; it’s surrounded by mountains and in 2011 it was named the nation’s “Most Beautiful Small Town” by Rand McNally and USA Today. It’s a true year-round destination with winter sports and summer fun.

About Paula Davy

I have always loved entertaining guests and it is my joy to share my homes in Sandpoint.

Paula Davy purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Paula Davy chose Sandpoint

When I first visited Sandpoint in 2005 I was instantly captivated by its sophisticated simplicity. It is a step back in time to a simpler America but has all of the modern amenities travelers love….GREAT restaurants, hip wine bars, a thriving art community, live entertainment and lots of outdoor activities in the midst of beautiful scenery… a winning combination for a relaxing and exciting vacation experience.

What makes this cottage unique

I have ALWAYS wanted to live in a vintage cottage and this sweet cottage makes my heart sing! I love that it is so conveniently located close to town, just one block to a large health food grocery store. When I am there I park the car and bike or walk EVERYWHERE! I love to sit on the front porch with a cool drink and some good friends or BBQ in the backyard with the whole family. It’s just the perfect place for a memorable relaxing vacation.

Comfortable, conveinent, charming.

  • 5 of 5

My partner, his adult son, his girlfriend and two dogs had a delightful five day stay at Paula's cottage. Kitchen is well stocked, beds are comfy, and the kitchen table is large and welcoming. The house is within walking distance of restaurants, grocery stores ( loved Winter Ridge Natural foods!) and downtown shops. We saw a moose one day on a neighborhood walk.

It is a short hop to the Schweitzer ski resort for skiing and snowshoeing.

I messed up the TV remote and the Sandpoint property manager, Trish, came over in the evening to help figure it out. Paula was available and helpful as well.

Only one problem, the internet is slow. We used our personal hot spots on our phones for a better internet connection

Great experience. We highly recommend this property and the area.

Great family location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a family Christmas trip to Sandpoint. It was perfect! Our daughter and her family lived just around the corner so it was easy for everybody to go back and forth. It easily slept 8 people and with an air mattresses it could have slept even more. We will definitely keep it in mind for our next trip to Sandpoint. Thank you so much for sharing your home.

Great home, well stocked, cozy, close to town. Poor internet access, otherwise would be 5 stars+!

  • 4 of 5

We really loved this place. Family was able to spread out. Great kitchen. Loved the bikes.

Internet is 6MB download. If you want a quiet family retreat without much internet, this place is perfect. Any real work that requires internet needs to be done at Starbucks! We really loved this house, so if you want to get your teens off the net and have them talk to you for a change, this is a great place!!!

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Lake Cottage was absolutely fantastic. This was a family reunion, long in the making, and the venue was perfect. The cottage is perfect. The location is great. It handled our three families in exquisite style. Clean, well-stocked, comfortable. Exceeded our expectations in every way. We are SO glad we chose the Lake Street Cottage for wonderful family memories. There is a magic in this place!
