Dover Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bed, 2 Ba, upper unit in four unit bld; exceptional mt and water views

Our Dover Bay Retreat air conditioned condo provides guests with a quiet, sunny, immaculately clean, spacious, smoke free and tastefully furnished condo surrounded by acres of pristine wetlands and nine miles of pet friendly walking trails. If you enjoy nature, you'll love our location.

Large windows show the active Walston pond and the Cabinet and Selkirk Mountains.

Cathedral ceilings add to the spaciousness of the 1340 square feet of comfortable, relaxing indoor living space.

We are pet friendly and do not charge a pet fee. Pets are part of the family, and our many repeat guests are responsible pet owners as well as non pet owners who love our private, relaxing, well furnished and reasonably priced condominium.

Sandpoint is one of the nation's most interesting, beautiful small towns. You and your family can walk, bike, or drive into town to enjoy all that it has to offer, but when you're ready to come home for the night you'll enjoy quiet nights in a planned residential wetlands community where cars drive slowly and people passing by wave at one another. Yes we have mosquitoes in the summer; we also have deer, beaver, osprey, great blue heron, muskrat, and the occasional moose (and a bear if you're lucky enough to see--I've never seen one in Dover).

Or stay in Dover--rent a kayak from the walking-distance marina and explore the miles of wetlands, river, and lake; rent a boat or bring your own and keep it at the Dover Bay marina; enjoy a fabulous night out at the restaurant Dish with its waterfront outside dining (within walking distance from our condo). Enjoy a leisurely walk along one of the many trails following the wetlands, waterfront park, and river. Don't be surprised if you see blue herons, beaver, deer, osprey, bald eagles, and even an occasional moose.

Dover Bay is a 285-acre planned community, over half of which is set aside as undeveloped open space. It's private and quiet but not isolated.

We take pride in providing our guests with nearly everything they need to relax, cook gourmet meals, and spend quality family time together. And family to us includes pets. As pet owners ourselves, we know that responsible pet owners make sure their pets are healthy, up-to-date on shots, altered, and well behaved, which is why we do not require a separate pet fee. People who love and travel with their pets are, in our experience, the best guests. In over eight years of renting to pet owners, we’ve never once had an issue with a guest and his or her pet, which is why we also attract guests who do not travel with their pets as well. No one—pet owners or not—wants to stay in a home that reeks of pee, is infested with fleas, or shows the wear and tear of irresponsible pet owners.

Our many amenities include:

*Brand new carpet (early July 2014)

*New 50 inch flat screen smart television (Jan 2015)

*Walking distance to gym/outdoor saltwater pool (extra fee), restaurant, marina, Lake, river (Sandpoint residents consider the water west of the I95 bridge to be the Pend ‘Oreille River and East Lake Pend ‘Oreille. We’re located slightly to the west.

Surrounded by miles of walking trails along the Pend Oreille River. A paved walking/biking trail, separate from the highway, takes you right into Sandpoint.

*Family friendly community-- quiet streets and paved walking trails for kids to bike and explore with little car traffic.

•No loud trains or busy streets to cross

*15 miles to the top of Schweitzer, seven miles to the base, where a bus will take you to the top of the mountain if you don't want to drive to the top (not available year round—check Schweitzer’s web site for updated information)

*37 miles to Silverwood Theme Park in Athol, ID.

*Pets okay with prior approval

*Upper Unit in four unit building (indoor stairs)

*Plowed in winter

*Extra off street parking

*Private, quiet, but NOT ISOLATED

*Ironing board, iron

*Keurig coffee machine and a couple of pods to get you started

About R Peters

We are a family of three who live in Spokane, WA. Both my husband and I are teachers. We stay in our condo during the ski season, so we 'test drive' all of our appliances, linens, kitchen utensils, etc. and replace and add as needed. We want you to enjoy your stay as much as we do.

R Peters purchased this condo in 1997

Why R Peters chose Dover

Wildlife viewing, walking trails, close location to Schweitzer and Sandpoint, ID. Great biking, hiking, active art community, beautiful location. Quiet but not isolated--you do have neighbors and are in a planned community. If you love nature, you'll love our place. No loud trains, no outdoor parties or partiers to keep you up at night (although the osprey chicks in the late spring and summer might be a bit loud if you leave the deck patio door open).

What makes this condo unique

See moose, deer, beavers, osprey, eagles, and other wildlife. Quiet, little traffic, easy walking trails, paved biking/walking trail, privacy, sunny, comfortable and extra clean. Dover is a family friendly planned community set in wetlands-if you enjoy nature and wild animals, you'll love our place' however, we're not isolated--you have neighbors and are not alone.

Very nice stay!

We stayed here 1 week in April. The location is great, very close to town. The view from the balcony is amazing! All the geese, birds, and mountains. It was very modern and clean, would stay here again.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at your place and skiing Schweitzer. Your place is so nicely decorated and the beds are really comfortable. We found everything we needed and had lots of R & R. It was so nice to be able to bring our dog, and he had a wonderful time playing in the snow behind your place. There were lots of deer trails to sniff out. The accommodations were clean and fabulous.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed this condo on recent trip to Sanpoint area for a family wedding. This condo is exactly as advertised, and the owners were extremely responsive and easy to communicate with. The condo is immaculate! The view from deck is overlooking s pond and osprey stand. The kitchen is well stocked. The linens and towels are high quality. The mattresses very cimfortable. The Dover Bay area is lovely and secluded yet very close to town. The restaurant is excellent, but not open yr round. The gym and pool are avail for a family for $ 30 per day or $100 per week. The gym is small but first class. My only complaint is the pool is not heated as the club advertises. The hot tub is, but pool was ice cold. So ask to stick your toe in pool before paying fee to use pool.

Dover Bay Condo

  • 5 of 5

More than I could have ever expected. From the Doe and her two fawns feeding in the yard each morning and evening, to the Osprey letting us know who's boss, to ALL the comforts of home... this unit was amazing! Lots of things to do nearby from trails, to antique shopping to farmer's markets... and you can't beat all the great restaurants also nearby! I would stay here every month of the year if I could. HIGHLY recommended!!!

Excellent stay, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week in Rachel's Condo. What a great home away from home. Everything you could possibly need was available and made life easy. There was lots of space, the A/C worked great and we loved the view. The balcony overlooking the marsh and the mountains were so peaceful. The nicest thing of all was the fact we could bring our lab along for the vacation. That made it really feel like home. We will return next summer and I may even come back in the winter.
