|Minimum Stay||2 - 4 nights|
Our Dover Bay Retreat condo provides guests with a quiet, sunny, immaculately clean, spacious, smoke free and tastefully furnished condo surrounded by acres of pristine wetlands and nine miles of pet friendly walking trails.
Large windows show the active Walston pond and the Cabinet and Selkirk Mountains.
Cathedral ceilings add to the spaciousness of the 1340 square feet of comfortable, relaxing indoor living space.
We are pet friendly and do not charge a pet fee. Pets are part of the family, and our many repeat guests are responsible pet owners and non pet owners who just love our private, relaxing, and well furnished retreat.
Sandpoint is one of the nation's most interesting, beautiful small towns. You and your family can drive, walk, or drive into today to enjoy all that it has to offer, but when you're ready to come home for the night enjoy quiet nights in a planned residential resort community where cars drive slowly and people passing by wave at one another.
Or stay in Dover--rent a kayak and explore the miles of wetlands, river, and lake; rent a boat or bring your own and keep it at the Dover Bay marina; enjoy a fabulous night out at the easy walking distance restaurant on the river Dish with it's waterfront outside dining. Enjoy a leisurely walk along one of the many trails following the wetlands, waterfront park, and river. Don't be surprised if you see blue herons, beaver, deer, osprey, bald eagles, and even an occasional moose.
Dover Bay is a 285-acre planned community, over half of which is set aside as undeveloped open space.
We take pride in providing our guests with nearly everything they need to relax, cook gourmet meals, and spend quality family time together. And family to us includes pets. As pet owners ourselves, we know that responsible pet owners make sure their pets are healthy, up-to-date on shots, altered, and well behaved, which is why we do not require a separate pet fee. People who love and travel with their pets are, in our experience, the best guests. In over eight years of renting to pet owners, we’ve never once had an issue with a guest and his or her pet, which is why we also attract guests who do not travel with their pets as well. No one—pet owners or not—wants to stay in a home that reeks of pee, is infested with fleas, or shows the wear and tear of irresponsible pet owners.
Our many amenities include:
*Brand new carpet (early July 2014)

We are a family of three who live in Spokane, WA. Both my husband and I are teachers. We stay in our condo during the ski season, so we 'test drive' all of our appliances, linens, kitchen utensils, etc. and replace and add as needed. We want you to enjoy your stay as much as we do.
R Peters purchased this condo in 1997

We stayed in January and found the condo very welcoming, comfortable and had everything we needed!! Plenty of space for the family to relax, cook meals and stay warm on the snowy days. Good location convenient to Sandpoint and areas around there. Nice views as well!
We had a wonderful stay at this condo. It is tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable. The owner addressed any questions right away. It was a very welcoming and relaxing environment for us and our dog. We would come back again.
We brought 3 adults, 2 teenage boys, a 1 year old and 2 dogs to stay in this condo for 1 week and it was perfect. They owner is amazing at communication and was great to work with. We will definitely stay again if we come back to Sun Valley.
We were very pleased with this condo. It was roomy and very clean. It was very close to our reunion so some of the other family members stayed in Dover Bay also. The code system is secure and we loved the balcony to sit and just enjoy the view! Thank you Rachel.
Exceeded our expectations too. Lots of natural light, nice kitchen, and comfortable beds and couches. Very relaxing deck atmosphere to enjoy morning sun and even a lightening show for our last evening. Lake Pend Orielle is beautiful and massive. We skiied all day, with very few other boats around, on a beautiful, hot July Sunday.
Would recommend to anyone as a great place to vacation!!
This place exceeded my expectations. My wife and I took our kids for a week and had a great time. The location is fantastic to enjoy in the lakes and Silverwood. Our only issue is that we didn't stay long enough.
The place was very clean and provided a great home base for touring around and also to relax. The beach in Dover Bay for adults doesn't look the greatest but our kids preferred it to the busier City Beach in Sandpoint. The walking paths were great for our kids to ride the scooters around and to go for walks.
We enjoyed being there for the 4th of July. Thankfully our kids slept through 4 nights of very loud and numerous fireworks.
We would stay here over and over again and would recommend it as long as you aren't trying to stay there the next time we want to book.
