Sandpoint House Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 2 baths, sleeps 2

This retreat is about experiencing a love affair, whether with Source, significant other or self. This intimate space allows one to rest, renew and reflect in the expanse of nature. If you are looking for a romantic getaway, privacy, and an inspirational and renewing retreat look no further. This cliffside home is built on mountainside rock overlooking Creation's back yard, where you view nothing but water, mountains and the animals that make it their home.

When it comes to views size matters! The views are jaw dropping. Nature envelopes you. Watch eagles and osprey compete for food as you lounge in the hot tub or deck. Hear the cry of a loon. Watch sunsets from the comfort of the outdoor fire pit on an infinity deck that gives you a birds eye view of this nature retreat. Wake up and go to sleep to the most inspirational setting you could wish for. While there are a host of activities and attractions nearby you may never want to leave the premises for after doing nothing all day you may want to rest afterwards!

This is an qwner's private home, not a rental. This artistic and eco friendly home has all of the amenities with which to pamper yourself. Enjoy the hot tub just steps off the master suite, separate bathrooms, TV and a fully stocked gourmet kitchen. A great room with fireplace adjoins the kitchen and a spacious master suite with fireplace all overlook the water and mountains providing an intimate experience with nature. This home was built with love, crafted by an artist/designer and inspired by Spirit.

This isn't a rental, this is an experience.

Near Nature near perfect: Forest Service and mountains are what's behind this home and water and mountains are in front. Minutes from your door you can hike, mountain bike, kayak, boat, and swim. There are two places to moor your boat and a place to put in directly below the house. Spend days exploring and enjoying the Best small town in the US per Rand McNaley. Visit Schweitzer Mtn Ski Resort, Silverwood Water Park or take a road trip and explore the scenic highways that take you to Montana and back. There's no lack of recreational activity outside your door though frankly once you are here you may not wish to leave the premises.

About Owner

Our meeting was a gift from God. There's no other way to explain how we met. Both avid outdoorspeople and reclusives, we created a love nest that reflects our tastes: private, surrounded by nature, user/eco friendly, and a place that is both inspiring and healing. Our intention is to pass on the blessings that this home has given so generously to us.

Owner purchased this house in 1997

Why Owner chose Sandpoint

This is a Soul House. Words don't do this home justice. It is experienced by the heart. Situated on a cliff, the view let's you experience a cloud's ledge perspective. Nearly all rooms look out on the view. You are totally private, whether in the garden area, the deck or inside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I spent our honeymoon here at the Lover's Getaway. It was everything I could have hoped for. The view is amazing, the home so cozy. We spent most of our time cooking and hanging out on the deck. We were lucky enough to watch some lightening storms 2 nights in a row. What a show! Also loved the show the birds put on. The park down the road was just right for a swim. This was the perfect place for our honeymoon. We didn't want to go home. We plan on being back next year.

Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Yes there are trains....everywhere in the Sandpoint does add to the charm after you get over the fright of them in the wee hours! LOL that was hilarious on our first night!

The home is well equipped and certainly as others have commented the pictures are not accurate as you must experience it, you cannot possibly capture the beauty, serenity or experience in a photograph. We were not disappointed with the home, the Garden of Eagen, the lake views which we said goodnight and good morning too.

Thoughtful touches abounded during our stay from a stocked pantry and spice drawer(s), to fresh flowers, binoculars, hot tub, gas out door fireplace, robes, chilled wine on our arrival and the list goes on. Worth noting is how wonderful the bed is, it certainly made for a great week having a good quality bed to sleep on!

The area has endless beauty, and so under populated! Trails were never crowded. The lake was beautiful, the hikes beautiful.

Our fur babies were able to join us and they enjoyed sunning themselves on the deck or watching the lake/birds and of course alerting us to the pika's or squirrels! We relaxed as we have never done before.

Certainly the information book is bang on! The Ice House pizza is some of the best pizza we have had! The pantry is Clark Fork was divine! The people everywhere were so friendly. Oh and for this who have dogs, the dog park in Ponderay is simply refreshing as a place for a safe run! Not to mention in Sandpoint the Dog Park Beach - how amazing for a community to embrace the four legged family members!

We loved it all. thank you to Ginny for being so well informed and thorough on our arrival. thank you to Jack and J'nell for sharing your little oasis with our family! xoxoxo

Owner's Response: Thank you Melody for your gracious review and for mentioning the trains. We don't want there to be any surprises - except for the good ones! So glad you discovered the dog friendly areas. Being able to have our fur children accompany us on a vacation is a necessity for some of us.
Here's looking forward to seeing you all next year.

We have given ourselves the gift of this getaway 4 times and just scheduled our 5th. Every year we plan a week to lose ourselves in the beauty, scenery, and the surroundings of this magical place. The "cabin" is not really a "cabin", but a luxuriously peaceful space and our home away from home.
We only gave it 5 stars because they don't list 6 as an option.

We so look forward to our next visit...

Excellent but be aware!

  • 4 of 5
Awesome views and well equipped rental but....
The property is as advertised and as good as all of the reviews, however, what is not being mentioned are several aspects that all should be aware of before booking.
The alleged wifi does not actually exist. We were not informed until a couple of weeks before we arrived that "...Your smart phone will work fine, however the wireless is sketchy. There are two places near by to connect up if really needed...." Too late to cancel without losing deposit, too late to make other arrangements. We were in the middle of a 5 month road trip and private e-mail was very important to us, for banking arrangements and also Skyping family back home! The only available wifi appears to be the password for the neighbor's router! The other major issue not mentioned until you arrive is the fact that your are about 250 ft away from the main road and the railway line. Yes you hear constant traffic particularly big trucks slowing down. But the real stars of the whole show are the coal trains clattering through and honking their warning horns. This may be quite cute and endearing but not a dozen times a day and the favourite was the ones at 3 am followed by another at 4 am. The owners have considered this and supply ear plugs for just such an occasion. Great house but people should have this information so that they can make a judgement before booking! Very disappointing.

Owner's Response: Dear Keith,
We're so sorry to hear now of your need for 24 hour wifi. Had you mentioned it to Ginny we would have supplied you with a wifi card. Smartphones and FaceTime do always operate here. You are the first to mention the trains and highway construction as distracting thus we appreciate it being brought to attention. Despite your "very disappointing" experience we appreciate your validating that the property is as advertised and that all the other 5 star reviews are correct and valid. Thank you for your four star review.

Where Goddess meets Cowboy

  • 5 of 5
Oh my. I love to write and can usually find a way to express myself, but stepping into the garden of this hillside roost gave me pause, let alone when my husband and I stepped through the front door of this soulful retreat. We're an active couple and had ridden our motorcycles from Colorado, with the intention of doing several rides in the local area of Sand Point during our stay. Somehow we tore ourselves away from the breathtaking lake view and the aviation entertainment of the feathered kind on day one, and enjoyed a wonderful local day ride in and out of gorgeous scenery and nature's offerings, but thereafter, the magnetic attraction of this love nest was too strong to leave, save for the Ice House Pizza and Laughing Dog brewery! We arrived exhausted and overstimulated and over the course of our stay, we remembered how to sit still again, and appreciate the small moments. You will be transfixed and mesmerized here, no matter what vantage point you choose. Try them all. You'll not be disappointed. Thank you for such a lovely and welcome retreat. Oh...and the creative and whimsical decor? The title says it best. Enjoy.

p.s. Ginny is a GEM!

We Loved It!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This home was wonderful! The photos are an understatement. All of the little details that came with this delightful place just added to the stay. A bottle of wine awaiting us, the quality, comfortable furniture, the abundant kitchen and supplies were all more than we have seen in other homes we have rented.

The cozy sitting area on the front porch was a morning treasure. The design of the deck overlooking the lake was fantastic! The way it drops down so that there is no need for a railing to block this beautiful view allowed us to enjoy the beauty of its location.

The many, many positive things make this a house that we will definitely come back to!

Thanks for sharing this wonderful home...

Haven of Peace

  • 5 of 5
Everything about this lovely place you've read is true! The pictures don't do the view justice. Our own pictures didn't either! It's a place to be experienced with the naked eye and treasured in the memories of the mind and heart. So glad to have been blessed with the opportunity to take my husband away for his birthday! Such a treat!

The bed and pillows provided the best rest. We kept the cd player's instrumental music playing almost constantly. It added the perfect touch to the movement of the water, slight breeze in the trees and dancing flames of the firepit/fireplace. Brew the coffee/tea, get a book, and put your feet up! Take it all in!

The grocery store isn't far. Stock up to cook and stay in for more of that view! :0)

Don't forget to be mindful that you are in the mountains with the wild. This includes the little critters too. I found a tick on my scalp when returning to CA today and kick myself for forgetting to practice tick prevention when in WA & ID. This is by no means a reflection of "Lover's Getaway", but is a reality to the location.

Go enjoy it! You wont regret it!

We'll be back! Lindsey & Josh

We're so glad to got to experience this magical place. Thank you for your kind words. Inside the gates of the Getaway is the peaceable kingdom while outside is truly wild. It's the best of both worlds. Till we meet again.

Car: recommended

We're located in the beautiful lakeside town of Hope, minutes away from the

scenic town of Sandpoint, Idaho. Sandpoint was voted one of the best small

towns in the US by numerous magazines like Sunset Magazine and the New

York Times. Lake Pend Orielle has over 100 miles of shoreline and is chock full of

islands and nooks and bays to explore by land or water! The area is gorgeous

with boundless opportunities for kayaking, hiking, boating and any kind of

outdoor activity you can think of.

Other Activities: All water sports, bird watching

Golf: Just 4 miles to Idaho Club's Jack Nicholus Signature golf course. The less demanding Elks Course (9 hole) is 20 minutes away.

Ski: Schweitzer Ski Resort is 25 miles away
