SANDPOINT has recently been chosen by USA TODAY NEWSPAPER as THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SMALL TOWN IN AMERICA. Sandpoint was chosen primarily because of the beauty of Lake Pend Oreille. We are located directly on Lake Pend Oreille in the town of Hope...which both locals and visitors agree is the most beautiful lake location.

We believe that our Lake House is the best value on the lake.. Nothing has been spared and the quality is of the highest standard from furnishings to bedding. We also offer the FREE USE OF THE FOLLOWING...3 MOUNTAIN BIKES (including helmets), 1 CRUISER BIKE, 4 KAYAKS (with lifejackets), numerous FLOATING DEVICES, WATER SKIIS, WAKE BOARD, 2 STAND UP PADDLE BOARDS, TUBING EQUIPMENT and more. FREE COFFEE BEANS and a SELECTION OF TEAS, FREE WI-FI & DISH NETWORK.

Lake Pend Oreille is the 14th largest freshwater lake (by volume) in the world. Bounded by spectacular mountains, lush forests and tucked into a pristine bay, Hope is the most sought after area on the lake. There are local marinas, top shelf restaurants, a fitness club and hiking trails galore. Take a spectacular scenic 25 minute drive to Sandpoint where you’ll find great shopping, entertainment and loads of friendly people. This is truly paradise.

The new guest house is located 50 feet from our main house so we are usually available to assure your every comfort and convenience if requested. We share the large dock and 100 foot beach front area with our guests. Please contact us at 208-946-0168 or 208-264-3012 for complete information .

Why Linda chose Idaho

This house was constructed specifically for vacation rentals. The design offers privacy as well as a large greatroom for the whole family. The kitchen will meet the needs of the most demanding cook. The high ceilings offer an airy and open feeling. You will feel very much at home.

Guestbook comments from the owner


This is what I was thinking when we first walked into the Lake House...WOW! WOW! WOW! Ken & Lyn you have done a fantastic job with this house. How could you not like it, it has everything and more. Ken & Lyn you truly made us feel welcome & we had a fantastic time. We did get our horse ride in and it was beautiful. Thank you for the use of all your water toys. Hope to see you soon.

Lake paradise

Beautiful serene lake setting, very comfy beds with plenty of towels, including beach towels. Our favorite part was the fishing off the dock-my 5 y o grandson caught a small mouth bass-and enjoyed the kayaking. Owner has everything including plenty of life jackets and lounge chairs by dock. House has a nice open plan where four adults and two children had plenty of room to play games and grill on the deck. Loved the marina close by-ice cream and homemade pizza down the road. Check out town of Sandpoint-lots of boutiques and kid friendly shops.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I could not have been more happy with my stay at the Hope rental. Beautiful home, right on the lake. The kitchen and home was so well stocked my sisters and I did not want for anything. We were travelling with my 93 yr old mother and the house was more than accomodating for her needs. Our hostess was gracious, thoughtful and only interested in our comfort. I would recommend this place without question.

this lake house is absolutely beautiful. the goal was to celebrate my 40th birthday with lots of food, relaxation and laughter. the house had everything we needed to make it happen. the lake toys we had to play with were so much fun. lots of kayaking and paddle boarding. it's a perfect location to explore the quaint local communities and close enough to sandpoint for day trips. plan on eating in since the kitchen is so amazing. lyn is a wonderful host. she made sure we had everything we needed. i will be coming back!

We just spent the most AMAZING week on the lake. Thank you so much for the use of your comfortable guest house. I can't imagine that there are more comfortable, stylish, lakefront accommodations anywhere on the lake. Our party included myself, my teenage daughter, my sister and her two boys, ages 5 and 10. The house is perfect for families.

I have stayed in numerous vacation rentals over the years (Lake Tahoe, Califorinia coast, Hawaii, etc.) and I can honestly say the amenities here are by far superior to any rental I've ever rented. Beach towels, coffee beans, luxury linens, the list goes on. The kitchen was so full of appliances (there is even a crock pot!) we had to get creative in storing the groceries.

Ken was an amazing host who made sure our needs were met without hovering or making us feel like we were infringing on him. He was great with the kids - teaching them how to access the floaties and life jackets, not to mention his patience with my nephew's many questions!

We had family members over for dinner one evening and nearly had an argument about who gets to stay here next year! You may have a bidding war on your hands Ken! We look forward to returning in the future!

This place is amazing, pictures do not do it justice! The lake house, yard and beach are immaculate. Everything and I mean everything is already there, kayaks, beach toys, BBQ, puzzles, movies, games, great appliances anything that you need is already there. Our hosts were incredible and extremely helpful, they are in the main property just feet away so if you require any assistance they are there to help.

There is plenty of room, we have 4 children but with the double bunks in the one room and the other room with a double in it ( it could have even been a queen I can't recall for sure) plus the large master with the King bed in it, there was plenty of space.

I can not complain about one thing we would definately go back again!!

The McAfees loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time here. The house is beautiful inside and out. Inside, the floor is gorgeous bamboo. There is a big TV with all the Dish channels. You have a washer/dryer and are supplied with laundry soap. There are plenty of bath towels there for you and you supplied with beach towels. There is a deluxe Weber gas grill on the patio for grilling and table and chairs. The entire property is immaculate. The yard is of golf course quality.

We spent a lot of time at the beach area. There are lounge chairs and float toys. A huge bonus is the four kayak and paddle boat. They are sitting right by the water and you can use them anytime. Just hop in and go. This was really nice because our kids wanted to go often but never for long periods of time.

The owners, Ken and Lyn, are wonderful people and great hosts. They are laid back and very friendly.

Ken is available to take you on the lake in his ski boat for a very reasonable fee. He has all the toys: biscuit/tube, water skis, and kid water skis. He has a giant biscuit that holds three people. We had a awesome time on the boat. I am not that great of a skier, but Ken got me right up. My 10-year-old daughter also learned to ski for the first time. We were thinking of renting a boat but I am glad we did not. Both times we went we were wore out in less than two hours. Ski boats are rented for a minimum a half day and are much more expensive. With Ken, you are not paying for a boat all day long and you get a great captain. Also, his boat is quite nice. He says it is an older boat but it looks like new to me and it has plenty of power.

We also fished off the dock. (My son caught a fish.) There is a fire pit near the water so one night we had a fire and made s'mores. Ken also has nice bikes that you can ride.

I really can't think of what else you would need!

The location is great. You are just a short distance from Sandpoint and the drive is beautiful. You are also close to Schweitzer Mountain. We also went to Silverwood Amusement Park.

There are some good restaurants close by in the Hope/East Hope area.

As you can tell we were IMPRESSED and had a GREAT TIME! I really hope to get back soon.
