Overview

Hope House Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 2 baths, sleeps 2

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.

About Jeanelle and Jack Shields

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

Why Jeanelle and Jack Shields chose Lake Pend Oreille

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Beautiful, Dog Friendly Property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at this beautiful home! The large deck was perfect time for lounging....especially in the mornings, evenings, and for star gazing. The hike out the back door was a great amenity, and there was easy access to the lake just across the road. Loved the fully stocked kitchen with everything you could possibly need for cooking, and the fenced backyard was fabulous for our dog! Sandpoint was a short, easy drive. We felt right at home. If we venture back to the area, we will definitely stay here again!

A little piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I arrived, I knew this was exactly what I was looking for...a relaxing, peaceful and refreshing vacation. J'nelle and Jack, thank you for making your home so comfortable and surrounding the beauty of nature thru out the home. The pictures here don't even come close to how beautiful every view from this home is or how warm and inviting the inside of the home is. Some highlights for me were watching the sunsets from the deck and waking up and seeing the lake in a panaromic view at my feet. Waking up with a temp of 55 degrees and taking the chill off with the fireplace. Watching the ofsprey dive for fish was very interesting and I loved watching the humingbirds enjoy all the flowers. My dog even enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching and hearing all the sights and sounds. :)

After my daughter's wedding this was a great welcome retreat that refreshed my soul. I'm so looking forward to my next visit.

Thank you again for your very warm hospitality!

The Iowa travelers.

Beautiful, Charming and Comfortable Place

  • 5 of 5

J'nelle and Jack make their property so welcoming. Everything shown in the pictures are accurate. It's that beautiful! The house has everything for your comfort even things that you wouldn't think of like sleeping masks and earplugs :) Upon arrival, J'nelle would gave us a walk through (over the phone) so that we got familiar with the house. All in all, we enjoyed the property to the fullest and that including our two dogs, Suki and Loebas. Everyday after the morning hike, they would relax at the deck or if it became too hot, they would be sleeping inside. We certainly would recommend Lover's Getaway to everyone.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We thought this would be a "nice" getaway, but discovered it was so much more than we imagined. From start to finish we were blissfully relaxed, calmly happy and noting the absence of adrenaline to race out and "do stuff". We were simply so content and happy that we just wanted to stay put. The property layout and amenities were well thought out, very clean and especially private. J'nell provided excellent intro to the house and we were confident of her availability should it be needed (of which it wasn't). We enjoyed it so much that we hope to return again and again and again. We can easily recommend and encourage friends and loved ones to visit.

Serene Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just celebrated his birthday in a very special place. What a beautiful setting and such great views. We couldn't ask for a more relaxed, quiet getaway! Loved laying in bed watching the clouds, just dreamy! We felt so pampered with all the special treats provided by Jeanelle, from the flowers, wine and delicious farm fresh eggs! Everything was better than expected. Can't wait to make another trip, hopefully for a longer period of time! Thanks so much.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time and look forward to returning in the future. The view is beautiful and the house is adorable. The hostess has thought out every nook and cranny and it feels like you are staying in a good friend's home. It allowed us to truly get away from it all in a busy season of our lives. Thank you!

We're located in the beautiful lakeside town of Hope, minutes away from the

scenic town of Sandpoint, Idaho. Sandpoint was voted one of the best small

towns in the US by numerous magazines like Sunset Magazine and the New

York Times. Lake Pend Orielle has over 100 miles of shoreline and is chock full of

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.

Other Activities: All water sports, bird watching

Golf: Just 4 miles to Idaho Club's Jack Nicholus Signature golf course. The less demanding Elks Course (9 hole) is 20 minutes away.

Ski: Schweitzer Ski Resort is 25 miles away
