This posting pertains to Unit A at Beargrass. The Lodge was built in 2004 by the owners of Unit A. We are located on Parallel Run Road, 1/2 mile from the ski lifts at Schweitzer Mtn. Resort. Schweitzer is 11 miles from the town of Sandpoint. Beargrass is not considered ski-in / ski-out, but it is an easy walk to Schweitzer Village. During peak periods, you can catch a shuttle bus at the end of our driveway and it will take you right to the Village.
Unit A is one unit that can be broken up into 3 different configurations.
Configuration A: 2 BR/2 BA sleeps 4+
Configuration B: 3 BR/2 BA, sleeps 8+ (listed in THIS AD )
Configuration C: 4 BR/3 BA, sleeps 14+ - This configuration has limited availability during the ski season, but is available during the summer months. It has an additional kitchen, deck, TV and fireplace.
There is also a heated 1-car garage. The kitchen is well outfitted. All the pots, pans and utensils that you would ever need are there. Its the perfect place for hosting a family gathering in the midst of a recreation mecca.
The warm cozy interior is finished with knotty Alder cabinets and trim. There is a gas fireplace to heat you up after a cold day on the hill. The large dining table on the main floor will seat 10. You will love our heated floors!
For your convenience there is Wi-Fi (Wireless Internet), all linens are furnished and there are even videos and CD's for your enjoyment.
Here are a few entries from our guest book....
'Thank you so much! The condo was amazing to stay in. The kitchen was great and the couches were super comfy. The condo has a great view of the mountain and is very close to the village. The skiing was fabulous getting to be in the snow was so much fun. Thanks again for the amazing stay. '

'Wow, this place is amazing. Your home has everything we were looking for. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay. There were 8 of us staying here and there was plenty of room for everyone. I hope to make it back next year. This is up there with one of the best ski trips I have been on. It literally started dumping snow the minute we walked in the door and 4 days later, it has not let up! Nothing like unlimited freshies on the mountain. Thanks again,

My wife, brother, sister-in-law and I built Beargrass Lodge in 2004. We live in Oregon and my brother lives in Eastern Washington. Schweitzer has been our place for wintertime fun since the 1970's. I am an architect and my wife is an admin assistant.
Gregg Creighton purchased this condo in 2004
Schweitzer is a growing 4-season resort. The skiing is excellent and the property around the resort is privately held.
Although skiing is what Schweitzer is best known for, it is truly a 4-season resort. In the winter, there is 2800 acres of terrain to explore on your skis. There is also tubing and snowshoe trails. In the summer, you have Lake Pend Orielle. . . one of the largest in the Western United States. Silverwood theme park is located 40 miles South of Beargrass. (1 hr away)
I came with a close group of friends to ski/snowboard at Schweitzer. The condo fit our needs nicely - big dining room table, two full baths, parking for two vehicles. The condo is full of everything you'll need for your visit - plenty of dishes and towels, nice appliances, etc. The place has a beautiful view of the mountains.
Gregg was fantastic to rent from - he communicated regularly with me leading up to the trip and then during the trip to make sure everything was going well. Having the right person to rent from is sometimes as important as the place you rent. Gregg even worked with us to reschedule our trip from 2015 to 2016 - Amazing! The owner clearly cares about his property and wants to make sure the renters enjoy their stay.
There were only a few negatives about this place. One was the distance from the village, 0.6 miles was just a little too far to walk with all your ski gear. Another was the WiFi - basically nonexistant - Gregg is aware and plans to change providers, so hopefully that won't be an issue for much longer - but i believe consistent internet connection on the mountain is a problem for everyone not just here - so plan to relax unplugged for the week. And last was the hot tub - which exists but is off limits to renters - yet still shows up in the listing and rental handbook in the condo - it's disappointing that previous renters have ruined that privilege. There really is nothing better than soaking in a hot tub after a long day on the slopes - we were quite disappointed.
We loved our visit to Schweitzer and are considering a trip back out in the summer - we will certainly keep this condo in mind for future visits!
Traveled from out of town for my sister's wedding on Schweitzer and booked this condo with a brother, another sister, and their respective partners (and one toddler). Perfect for our little family reunion! It was a very comfortable house to hang out in and make big breakfasts together, while at the same providing enough privacy and separate rooms and bathrooms for everyone! It was perfect for a long weekend, and a joy dealing with Greg. I recommend this rental to any party looking for a relaxed and convenient place to stay that's walking distance to beautiful Schweitzer!
This property was perfect for our group. We enjoyed ourselves a lot. Our main complaint is that the hot tub didn't work (to be fair we were warned that might be the case), and the Wi-Fi wasnt actually available as claimed. The guidebook on site basically said you can probably find free Wi-Fi from the lodge. We couldn't, at least without leaving the house. This was a detriment as one member of our group was supposed to work from the house the first day, and had to post up at the lodge instead.
This place was just what we needed for our mixed group attending a wedding on the mountain. Great time, no complaints other than the broken hot tub and misleading info regarding availability of Wi-Fi.
Beautiful place! The setting and accommodations were great. We stayed here with our family and my sister's family and had plenty of room. Very clean and well decorated. Would definitely stay here again.
We stayed here for 2 nights after New Years and rented the 2-bed, 2-bath configuration for 5 of us (2 couples and a 6-year-old). This place was amazing! Beautiful views, comfortable beds and couches, lots of space to relax & eat. I wish I could post a picture here - really a million-dollar view from every window! We ate dinner here one of the nights & had plenty of pots, pans, dishware, etc. Well stocked place with tons of games & movies to keep anyone occupied (if the view & sitting in front of the gas fireplace and relaxing isn't enough to keep you from getting bored). We didn't use the (shared outdoor) hot tub on the top floor due to the extremely cold weather, but it looked really clean & large. It was easy to call the shuttle to get us to the ski hill - probably about a 20-minute wait, but less than a 5 minute drive to actually get there. The owner was extremely easy to get a hold of and very accessible to ask questions via phone and e-mail. We hope to stay here again in the future - hopefully longer next time!
Beargrass is located at the 4600' level. Roughly even with the Village at Schweitzer. We are located .5 miles from the Village and 11 miles from Sandpoint where all most general services are located. Snow skiing and riding are the main attaction in the winter, boating and Silverwood Theme park are just some of the attractions that are available in the summer.
