If you are looking for a romantic lover's getaway/spiritual retreat with total privacy, and an inspirational and renewing escape look no further. This retreat is about experiencing a love affair, whether with Source, significant other or self. Rest, renew and reflect in the expanse of nature. This intimate cliffside home is built on mountainside rock overlooking Creation's back yard. View nothing but water, mountains and the animals that make it their home.
When it comes to views size matters! The views are jaw dropping. Nature envelopes you. Watch eagles and osprey compete for food as you lounge in the hot tub or deck. Hear the cry of a loon. Watch sunsets from the comfort of the outdoor fire pit on an infinity deck that gives you a birds eye view of this nature retreat. Wake up and go to sleep to the most inspirational setting you could wish for. While there are a host of activities and attractions nearby you may never want to leave the premises for after doing nothing all day you may want to rest afterwards!
This is an owner's private home, not a rental. This artistic and eco friendly home has all of the amenities with which to pamper yourself. Enjoy the hot tub just steps off the master suite, separate bathrooms, TV and a fully stocked gourmet kitchen. A great room with fireplace adjoins the kitchen and a spacious master suite with fireplace all overlook the water and mountains providing an intimate experience with nature. This home was built with love, crafted by an artist/designer and inspired by Spirit.
This isn't a rental, this is an experience.
Near Nature near perfect: Forest Service and mountains are what's behind this home and water and mountains are in front. Minutes from your door you can hike, mountain bike, kayak, boat, and swim. There are two places to moor your boat and a place to put in directly below the house. Spend days exploring and enjoying the Best small town in the US per Rand McNaley. Visit Schweitzer Mtn Ski Resort, Silverwood Water Park or take a road trip and explore the scenic highways that take you to Montana and back. There's no lack of recreational activity outside your door though frankly once you are here you may not wish to leave the premises.
Our meeting was a gift from God. There's no other way to explain how we met. Both avid outdoorspeople and reclusives, we created a love nest that reflects our tastes: private, surrounded by nature, user/eco friendly, and a place that is both inspiring and healing. Our intention is to pass on the blessings that this home has given so generously to us.
Jeanelle and Jack Shields purchased this house in 1997
This is a Soul House. Words don't do this home justice. It is experienced by the heart. Situated on a cliff, the view let's you experience a cloud's ledge perspective. Nearly all rooms look out on the view. You are totally private, whether in the garden area, the deck or inside.

My husband and I spent our honeymoon here at the Lover's Getaway. It was everything I could have hoped for. The view is amazing, the home so cozy. We spent most of our time cooking and hanging out on the deck. We were lucky enough to watch some lightening storms 2 nights in a row. What a show! Also loved the show the birds put on. The park down the road was just right for a swim. This was the perfect place for our honeymoon. We didn't want to go home. We plan on being back next year.
What can be said that hasn’t already been written in a review for this amazing getaway? It truly has everything that’s been raved about and so much more! My husband and I have enjoyed 7 fabulous stays at the Lover’s Getaway starting in 2010. We’ve celebrated our engagement, our honeymoon, and life in general here. Jack and Janelle have so perfectly made this a place of physical, mental, and spiritual refreshment. We cannot thank them enough for all the time and effort they’ve put in to every detail! They have a gift, and what a blessing that they have chosen to share it. The area has something for everyone…hiking, skiing, shopping, the lake, great restaurants, community events. We usually choose to just stay in once we’ve arrived and relax in the peace of being away from it all. We ALWAYS wish we could stay longer, but we come home inspired and renewed every time. Can’t wait for our next opportunity to enjoy The Garden of Eagen!
The lovers getaway exceeded our expectations in every way. The home is immaculate, the view is spectacular, and the privacy is omnipresent. The owners (Jeanelle and Jack) are the best; they've thought of everything and are so gracious to review the home and amenities. They were always quick to respond with any questions. Looking forward to our next stay at the getaway!
There are so many positive things to say about our experience at this home, but we will try to keep it succinct. We stayed at this home for four nights between Christmas and New Years. It was snowy, beautiful, and peaceful. This place perfectly combines fantastic, peaceful privacy with amazing, picturesque views of the lake (and eagles). The hot tub was a wonderful experience to keep warm while snow is piled all around and gently falling. The King-sized bed was incredibly comfortable and the mood lighting (dimmable lights, battery candles, etc) and the two gas fireplaces made this a truly amazing retreat and experience for us. Jeanelle and Jack have thought of everything with this home and the loving touches and amenities are very evident throughout. Jeanelle was a fantastic host who provided tons of resources and information about amenities and activities near the home and in the surrounding areas (Sandpoint, Hope, Montana, etc.) We truly cannot speak highly enough about this experience with this home and with Jeanelle as a host and we cannot wait to come visit again. This was exactly the relational, physical, and spiritual renewal that we hoped to gain from this trip.

We stayed here six nights Oct 2016. It has the most amazing views of the lake and mountains. The bed is so comfy you won't wanna get out of it! The hot tub is to die for! Definitely didn't want to leave! Just amazing!
We were given a stay at the Lover's Getaway as a wedding present. We were exhausted from a year of wedding plans. When we arrived and saw this beautiful retreat and the breathtaking view, we knew it would be the perfect place for us to relax and spend our first post wedding week together. The owners treated us like royalty. We'll remember our time there for ever....pure bliss We so hope we can return someday.

islands and nooks and bays to explore by land or water! The area is gorgeous
with boundless opportunities for kayaking, hiking, boating and any kind of
outdoor activity you can think of.
