Welcome to Flatwater Landing. Let the breath-taking scenic beauty, multiple outdoor activities and abundant wildlife inspire you. This lovely, lakefront lodge-style home is situated on a 7+ park-like acre paradise.
In the Summer enjoy all that Lake Pend Orielle has to offer. Boating, swimming or just relaxing on the dock or just dangling your toes in the sparkling water. The days are warm but the evenings cool comfortably and a campfire on the beach is the perfect end to a fun-filled Summer day. The 360 degree views are captivating, sunrise on the calm waters of the Pend Orielle and sunsets over the Selkirk Mountains. Fall is equally supreme with its crisp days and brilliant autumn colors. September is a great time for hiking or maybe blueberry picking at one of the local farms. October's good for a drive around the lake to experience the Fall colors, or just a sit on the deck or dock and watch the bald eagles and osprey.
Winter brings snow and the opportunity to x-country ski or snowshoe along the lakeshore. Schweitzer Mountain Resort is only a short 30min./17 mi drive if you find skiing or snowboarding are more appealing. After, you can warm up by the fire with a nice cup of ho-cho while you enjoy the winter views.
When Spring arrives the fields and hills green, It's great to get out for a long walk or bike ride, or pass the time sitting in the sun reading and watch as the Canadian geese begin to nest on the point.
This is an Ideal setting for a Spring, Summer or Fall outdoor Wedding.
North Idaho is truly a year-round paradise.

My husband and I both grew up near Seattle, WA. We have been married 24 years. We have 2 grown children. We enjoy many outdoor activities individually and as a family. Though we love the beauty and opportunity for outdoor activity near our home in western Washington, we also enjoy our activities at a slower pace and a less crowded space. Our place in Idaho has everything we love without the traffic or the crowds. We truly found our 'Happy Place' on the shores of Lake Pend Orielle!
For many years we thought about how the ideal place for us would be on a lake near a ski area and a small town where people generally shared our values of home and family and simply enjoying nature and the outdoors. We hoped it would be a place we could enjoy family time with our(now grown children) and their friends and someday their families. It's nice having a place to share good times with our friends as well. We love to ski and snowshoe in the winter. We hike and bike, boat, sail, canoe, waterski/wake surf, fish and hunt and we can do it all here in North Idaho. We purchased the land in 2004 and began building in 2007, finishing in June of 2008.
We enjoy the inspiring views from any window in the house. The fresh, clean air, seeing wildlife like bald eagles and osprey, deer and moose, coyotes, rabbits, frogs, turtles, toads, turkeys, geese, loons, squirrels and chipmunks... to name a few. We love just sitting on the dock and taking in the beauty or jumping/diving off for a swim on a warm summer day. Indoors, the in-floor radiant heat and the gas fireplace will keep you toasty warm during the cold months, and the abuntant windows open up to catch the evening breeze to keep you cool in the Summer. Our home has a warm, cozy, lodgey feel to it. We tried to create a cabin feel without being too cutesy or campy and we have used some subtle touches that have received high praise from our family, friends and guests. We hope you will feel comforted there too.
