Your Own Private Lakefront Retreat......leave your worries at home.
Wake up to beautiful views of Lake Pend Oreille and Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort while enjoying your first cup of coffee on your private deck.
Pack your picnic basket and stroll to the shoreline. Umbrellas, tables, loungers and chairs await you at your private dock. Time for lunch? Enjoy eating at one of the waterside tables while watching eagles and ospreys fish for their days catch.
After your first dip into pristine Lake Pend Oreille, you'll understand why guests return year after year. Enjoy spending your day basking in the sun on the lake swimming, boating, waterskiing and playing in the water. At only 35 feet deep, Bottle Bay is one of the warmest bays on the lake making it the perfect place for all water activity.
Time to get out of the sun? Stroll through the mature trees to the lower deck of the home where you can refresh yourself with a cold beverage, glass of wine and snack. Kick up your feet and watch the sun play on the water and the Canadian Geese paddle by.
Dinner time.....too tired to cook? Try dining at nearby Bottle Bay Resort Marina.....be sure to try their signature Huckleberry Margarita. Or perhaps you would prefer to BBQ your own dinner, served deck or dockside.
Now is the perfect time to stroll back down to the shoreline to share stories of the day. As night falls, star gazing is spectacular. Keep your eyes open for shooting stars dancing across the sky.
After the perfect day at the lake, relax in the open & airy living room with a good book and warm cup of tea.
As bedtime draws near, choose from one of the three bedrooms where sleep will come easily.
As morning dawns, it promises to be another beautiful day in the bay. Make certain you don’t forget to spend time exploring Sandpoint. A 15 minute boat ride or 25 minute car ride will place you in the heart of town where you will find exceptional dining, shopping, antiquing and a variety of other activities. Tennis anyone? City Beach has several tennis courts, public beaches, horseshoe pits, basketball & volleyball courts, boat launches and a play ground for young children.
Don't forget Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort, with panoramic views of Lake Pend Oreille and the mountains beyond. The choice is yours, go berry picking, hiking, mountain biking or try your hand at the climbing wall or zip line.
If golfing is your passion, be sure to explore The Idaho Club, where Jack Nicklaus Signature course awaits you.
As you pass through town on your way home, be sure stop at Trinity at City Beach, for a quick bite or romantic lakeside dinner.
This Lakefront Retreat and vacation to Sandpoint will be your favorite destination for summers to come.
When we bought this lot we knew it would take us a long time to build a vacation home for our family. Over the next 10 years various family members contributed time and expertise to help us complete the final product. Now it's a place to relax and enjoy.
