NEAR SILVERWOOD! 160 ACRES, REUNIONS! RETREATS! SLEEPS 40!

Athol Lodge Rental Photos and Description

11 Bedrooms, 7 full Bathrooms, 2 half bathrooms, Sleeps 32 in beds + 3 sofa beds

This property is on 160 forested acres bordering National Forest. Take a quiet walk or a challenging hike. Connect with family as you explore shady forests, open fields or rocky hillsides. Wildlife is abundant- you will almost certainly see deer, elk, hawks, bluebirds or wild turkeys, maybe even a moose! Enjoy evenings on the large screened porch or inside watching a movie by the fireplace. It's a short walk to your comfortable bed when it is time to turn in. The lodge operates part of the year as a destination recording studio, so the suites, cabins, and common areas are designed for a group of people to enjoy together comfortably for a week or more.

There is ample refrigerator/freezer space, 2 ovens, char-broiler, and large griddle as well as a commercial dishwasher which cleans a load of dishes in under 3 minutes! The kitchen is well-stocked with large pots and pans and numerous serving dishes and warmers. Should you decide not to cook, we can put you in touch with a private chef or catering company.

There are 3 cabins, each with a bedroom (queen bed), full bath and living room. The living rooms in each cabin are equipped with a TV/DVD, a mini fridge, sink and microwave, a loveseat and chair as well as a second queen bed. Each cabin has its own porch, Wi-Fi & air conditioning. The main building has an exceptional master suite with a gas fireplace, a sitting area, wet bar with mini fridge, Jacuzzi tub and fabulous shower. The main building also has 2 suites with private bathrooms, as well as a 2 bedroom/1 bath 'family suite'.

The location is excellent! You'll turn off the highway and drive down a private, gated country road. Even though it is just a short distance from highway to property, you'll feel like you are a million miles from everything. The property is located between Sandpoint and Coeur d'Alene, two of the most popular tourist towns in North Idaho. We are less than 15 minutes from the Northwest's largest theme/water park, Silverwood. Also within minutes is the town of Bayview and Farragut State Park. This is a spectacular 4000 acre park at the south end of Lake Pend Oreille, the state's largest (43 miles long) lake. It's also the deepest (at 1,158 feet deep, there are only four deeper lakes in the nation). It's got terrific scenery, clean water, big fish, and a fascinating history.

Picnic areas and swimming holes, boat rentals, fishing charters, Frisbee golf as well as a Naval Museum can all be found around Farragut and Bayview. 30 minutes south of the property is the beautiful resort town of Coeur d'Alene, and 30 minutes north is Sandpoint, home to Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort and the Sandpoint Music Festival. Both towns have antiquing, golfing, great restaurants, shopping and lots of wonderful summer and winter activities.

Consider renting some studio time while you are here. Preserve memories of your family reunion, by having a video of family storytelling made in the recording studio, or document the family's musical abilities with a CD!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you both for the opportunity to stay at Cider Mountain. The entire group enjoyed themselves and the location nestled up in the trees was perfect! We do this retreat every year (my 34th year) and I think this is the first time I have ever seen a place so well thought out. You guys have done an amazing job with the overall comfort and ambience as well as the creature comforts---as long as I can have tunes in the kitchen I will cook anytime! Also, we appreciated the personal touch from you Corrie and the explanation and history of the photos taken by Chris' great grandfather. Very cool! Thank you and we hope to visit again :-)

THE PROPERTY WAS EXCELLENT. PICTURES AND DESCRIPTIONS ARE AS ACCURATE AS THEY CAN BE.

  • 5 of 5
As with any unseen rental, we were optimistic. But as other family members arrived before us we started receiving texts from them say the place is "fabulous, unbelievable, wonderful" so we could not wait to arrive. We were not disappointed. The main house has everything you need from entertainment to cooking needs. Fully stocked industrial kitchen, game room, laundry facilities were all in great shape. The cabins were a great get away for the grandparents, quiet and just far enough from the main house to get rest if required. The grounds are well maintained and again well provisioned with outdoor sports equipment. The crown jewels would be the owners, Corrie and Chris. They were just a phone call away and responded immediately to the smallest request. Thank you both for a wonderful stay.

SIMPLY STATED... PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
Only one word can adequately describe Cider Mountain - PERFECT! We just completed our family reunion last week and everyone had a fantastic time, and a big reason for that was Cider Mountain. We have been doing these family reunions for the past 15 years...and the Cider Mountain property was without a doubt the best, definitely. We have stayed in very nice accommodations in Summit County Colorado, Black Hills South Dakota, Zion National Park Utah, etc - but this place was far better. It not only has great amenities, beds, espresso maker (which was a huge hit with everyone), juke box, wireless speakers throughout, chair lift for the stairs, amazing kitchen, massage chair, outdoor fireplace, large screened porch, laundry room with multiple washer/dryer, nicely furnished, etc., etc.,....but also has activities for everyone of all ages (we ranged from ages 7 to 85) with video games, board games, pool, ping pong, basketball, karaoke, poker table, tetherball, soccer goals, playhouses, frisbee golf, volleyball, Jacuzzi, outdoor shower, huge lawn area for playing sports, large back yard deck, and the list goes on. Prior to booking, I looked at a lot of places and read a lot of reviews - I am one of those people who does a lot of research, so I had high expectations of this home before I showed up - but the pictures and reviews are not able to adequately describe this place. And then on top of all this, the owners Chris and Corrie were simply great to work with. They did everything to help make our stay amazing and even resolved issues for us that were not theirs to resolve - to put it simple, if you cannot get along with these two nice people, you may have issues. I highly, highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a perfect and private retreat home for a group of 25 to 45. We will be going back...and thank you Chris and Corrie for making this reunion the best one we've had...

WISH WE COULD GIVE MORE THAN 5 STARS!

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful, amazing, functional, thought of everything, couldn't ask for a better home away from home... these are a few of the statements that come to mind. Chris and Corrie have done a phenomenal job creating a retreat home that is perfect for families, or wild women on the loose! This is our 2nd stay here and we look forward to many more.

AMAZING LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
I brought my private school class of 8th graders to this location for their class trip. We had an amazing time. It was easy to separate the boys and the girls with the main house and the additional 3 cabins. Owners were extremely nice and accommodating. Almost everything is provided too!

RETREAT

The facilities were absolutely beautiful! There was some construction going on, but not too much of a hindrance. Everyone in the group was so grateful for such a beautiful and relaxing place to retreat. It was also very clean and there were some cool additions from the year before.
