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 .

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.

The lake house was perfect for our family vacation! Beautifully decorated, immaculate, and roomy.

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time on our vacation. The homeowner was extremely accomadating and we left feeling like we made a lifelong friend. The property is beautiful and in an amazing location just off the water. We used all of their water toys including the kayaks, paddle board, tubes, and life jackets. We want to come back every year!

Well built, great fireplace and kitchen, no wifi or TV service

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely house. We enjoyed the well equipped kitchen, comfortably firm mattress, luxury baths, cozy radiant floor heat, and easy on gas fireplace. Owner very responsive. Be prepared to make coffee in a Moka or coffee press. Be aware that the tv is present but set up to connect to a computer to show videos rather than to cable or satellite dish, and no wifi. If you don't need to be connected or can bring your own wifi this shouldn't be an issue. Location was one mile or so from center of town, just down the street from local athletic club ($13 per use fee) and on convenient back route to skiing. Train tracks are very close but in general no whistles because the nearest crossing is elevated---we could hear the trains but it was not intrusive and did not feel the house vibrate as we have at other rentals in the area. We enjoyed the house and would rent again.

Lake paradise

  • 5 of 5

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!
