It is rafting season, easy access to Moyie River! Wildlife is abundant now!

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

4 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 7

This year will be a big year for floating the Moyie River!!

The house has wonderful views of the Moyie River, just 50 feet from the double porches [upstairs and main floor]. Big windows and glass doors keep the feel of the wilderness that is evident across the river and around the house. Viewing of wildlife is a normal state of affairs at River Haven, from nesting Merganser Ducks to turkey, many birds, elk, moose, bear, and of course deer! The kitchen is fully equipped w/ dishwasher and all other conveniences as well as all cooking and baking needs. Washer and dryer are available as well as satellite T.V. The clean bathroom is large w/ tub/shower, fluffy large towels, clean shower curtains [changed for each stay]. Upstairs large bedroom has a new Queen Englander mattress w/ sitting area and deck facing river. The main floor has a room that can be made private with a new plush double futon. The great views of the river continue here. The comfortable living room has a wood stove and opens to the porch over-looking the river. No grill, fire pit w/ lots of wood.

Outside is a new beautiful small cabin w/ double bed complete with a small wood stove. The house does not have cell service, does have a landline, but no long distance ( best to bring a calling card for out of area calls)

There is easy rafting / tubing accessibility. Makes the floating / fishing fun from the start. One can just float down to the bridge and walk back to cabin [3/4 mile] or to Copper Creek Campground and walk back [1.5 miles] or take a many mile float.

Fish the river out front for native trout and whitefish waiting for dinner whiles away the time. Fishing lakes are as close at Robinson Lake, 4 miles, it is also a productive ice fishing spot. Sinclair Lake {6 miles] is small but well stocked. Brush Lake, about 10 miles, is great fishing! The list goes on for fishing lakes and water fun.

Hunting here is prime for bear, elk, moose, deer, turkey, foul, and wolves during their seasons. Hunting is out the back door, or a short 1/4 mile to National Forest. There are many open roads in the National Forests and State lands that are close to the property. Great accessibility to areas hunters might want to hike into.

Copper Falls is a fun state park for a short day hike, 3 miles or a challenging winter ice climb.

Come have a relaxing visit or an exciting time in pursuit of the outdoor adventures at River Haven!

Supplies and Great Food just 5 miles away at Wild Horse Mercantile.

Beautiful location and great house.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The house was very clean and had everything we could possibly need. The property was beautiful and very private, yet so close to hiking areas and having the river right in the front yard was awesome.

I would reccommend this rental to anyone.

The only minor issues we had were:

There was no barbeque grill on the property (as is listed in the available amenities)

The fire pit was in an awkward area, on a path in between high weeds and very unlevel ground. ( very difficult to have more tha 2 chairs around the fire).

Other than that, everything was wonderful!!!!!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the heads up on the BBQ (neglected to take off site. A past renter used charcoal in if and we needed to remove it for safety (glad they were safe as BBQ was hooked to propane at time, but off! ! Taken under advisement, location of fire pit. Was actually used years ago as outdoor cooking at little cabin We'll build another in a more convenient location. For group fire enjoyment The compliment on house and river access to us that is most important! .thanks!

Great place to disconnect

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of life. The river is less than 100 yards away and just the sound of it is wonderful.

We will be staying here again very soon.

Perfect size, clean, peaceful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

My family, which included 2 teen boys, stayed at River Haven for a week. It was a long drive from the Spokane airport, but well worth it. River Haven is a clean, safe cabin style house right on the river. It is very spacious and included everything we needed. I was worried about it only having one bathroom, (the focus being again on my 2 teen boys) but it wasn't a problem at all. The bathroom is quite large with updated fixtures. The property and surroundings are well maintained. We had a very relaxing vacation. If we're ever up around that part of Idaho again, we will definitely stay here. we had a wonderful, wonderful, stay. Thanks Lee!

If anyone is staying close to Bonners Ferry, I recommend staying here. It's a little further drive north, (a mile from the Canadian border), but you'll have a confortable relaxing stay.

This place is a great place to get away from it all especially from cell phomes and internet. We slept in during the entire stay. Very rustic and simple. Enjoyed the river and tried our hand at fishing, which I havent done since I was a boy. The serenity and peace at night gave especially me a chance to relax. The wildlife was great to see especially the doe with her young fawn, which my daughter was thrilled to see. Got to see the 4th of July parade close by. They literally closed both sides of the highway at Eastport near the border. We went to see the fireworks at Feist Creek Falls Resort which were better than I had seen in a long time. The echoing off the mountains made it even more spectacular. Great rental.

Peaceful and beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our dog and kitty had a wonderful weekend. The cabin is cozy and has everything you need to get away and enjoy nature. We walked up to Copper Falls and rode our bikes along the river. We hope to return again soon. Thanks Lee. Mark and Debby Liptrap, Spokane, WA.

Worry-free stay in North Idaho!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of two couples and kids made a break from Coeur d'Alene (2 hour easy drive) for a 3-day weekend stay at River Haven, looking to explore the areas north of Sandpoint, but wanting something more comfortable than camping since it was forecasted to be a pretty miserable and wet weekend. My favorite part of this location, other than being right on the Moyie River, is that the compound is comfortably rustic and seemingly hand-built over time which allowed us to enjoy our time there rather than worry about scratching, nicking, or straight-up breaking something! Don't get me wrong -- we love a luxurious stay at the Hilton -- but this weekend was relaxing in it's own right and everything was perfectly nice. We found the kitchen to have everything we needed (roasted two large chickens in the oven and used our cast iron on the gas range). The wood stove was prepped for use in the cool nights (but backed up by propane and electric heaters). We used the fire ring out by the extra cabin to cook/eat/play and found everything we needed (chairs, roasting handles, metal grates, buckets, shovels) in close proximity. And the kids loved peeking at the bee hives from afar! We fished the river a bit but it was running really high and fast with all the rain, so we had more fun exploring the local lakes and woods and even found morels on the Copper Falls trail. Our little pooch wanted to stay forever -- so much more fun than living in town. I'd recommend River Haven to anybody looking for a remote rustic cabin near a lot of pretty wilderness! Thanks for the stay - NPM
