About The Owner

Hi, my name is Steve. I am a travel photographer amongst other things, and I have to say that the views from my house in Garfield Bay are among the most amazing views I have photographed anywhere on my world travels. That is why I moved here from England.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Sagle

I chose Garfield Bay because of the peace, nature, and scenery and yet it is not too far away from the culture and great restaurants in Sandpoint

What makes this house unique

Enjoying the wildlife, the sun coming up over the mountains, the views across the lake.

Garfield Bay House with Fantastic Views of Lake and Mountains
average rating of 4.5 based on 10 reviews

Beautiful view - affordable, but house could use a little work

  • 3 of 5

We loved the trip to Garfield Bay. We would definitely recommend going there - fantastic area, with easy access to the lake. We loved the view off the deck - the cover photo is very realistic about what you can see. The house was generally clean, but a few things need some work. There is a problem with debris (?) falling from the rafters and the beams, which is why someone (owner) has placed duct-tape on the ceiling. Debris was literally falling in small quantities onto our daughter's bed in the second bedroom. Not a ton, but small flakes and specks of material that would appear in a period of an hour or two. The carpet could use a little cleaning in the bedrooms and had dead ants in the corners. We wish there was a little love an landscaping going on in the front or back yard ( there is none), but the view of the lake makes up for that. We unfortunately picked a unseasonably hot week, so the lack of air conditioning was unfortunate, but we get it - that is expensive and the price was right for the rental. Note that there is no WiFi in the house, but the owner did provide a cellular signal booster that helped with data (slow) on our phones. Over all we had a good time and recommend the house, but wish there was a little more TLC going on.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your trip to Garfield Bay Keith. Sorry you experienced the ant problem during your stay. We always have the insects and ants under control in the house but they got into the roof this time where it was a little more difficult to locate and control. Hence the little specs you saw in the 2nd bedroom. That has now been taken care of. Hope you can visit again Keith and get to enjoy that fabulous view from the deck .

Quiet and Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

The view you see is from the back deck which extends the length of the house. Garfield Bay is gorgeous. This is a quiet area. Lots of wildlife. Master bedroom phenomenal, second bedroom small but bed comfy. No A/C but lots of fans!! Kitchen well equipped. Good for 2 couples.

Great Lakehouse

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at this property and the minute we walked in the door we all said WOW. We have camped at Garfield Bay on and off for over 20 years and decided we would like the comforts of a house. It did not disappoint. It truly feels like you are staying at a friends house as there are books,games and movies, a note telling us to help ourselves to the fridge contents( we tried to leave a few cold ones for the next group) and as a bonus we had the pleasure to meet Steve. He is a great and interesting guy! I have always loved this area and getting to enjoy it knowing there was a king size bed waiting made it ideal. The views are truly beautiful and the house is designed to maximize them.It is a half mile to the beach/park/marina and a short slow drive to Green Bay which is a must to see.The Cap'ns Table is awesome and a picture of Guy from Diner's Drive in and Dives is on the wall. The in house smoked brisket is amazing and is served pure(no sauce) as a french dip it sells out fast,the pastrami is amazing(have the pastrami burger) and the people are awesome. Of all the places I have rented this one made me want to come month. We had a group of six and it was plenty of room..Enjoy!
