We have just finished our fourth stay at the cabin and feel like it is our home away from home. The cabin itself is incredibly beautiful and we were lacking for nothing. The owners share fresh fruits and veggies from the garden and every morning we wake to deer or turkey outside our bedroom window. If you are looking for a quiet peaceful place to stay while visiting the Sandpoint area you will not find a better place.

Serenity and beauty in a mountain setting

  • 5 of 5

We used Starfire cabin as our base camp for adventures in the local area. We hiked Mineral Trail and paddle boarded in Garfield Bay and had a grand time. The town of Sandpoint is just a short drive away and it is tourist friendly with many places to eat and shop.

Starfire cabin was absolutely beautiful and met all our expectations. It was clean and comfortable with everything we needed to unplug and regenerate. If you are addicted to your phone or email, then this may not be the right place for you. There is no wifi or cell service at Starfire cabln, in the immediate area or in Garfield Bay so if you have to be connected to be happy, then find a different place. There is cell service in Sandpoint. From my perspective, it was perfect in every way and I left all my stress at the cabin!

Have you ever dreamed of living in a log cabin in the woods? George Orton had a bigger dream. He built his own log cabin, using logs from his 40 acres. Starfire Cabin is a seamless blend of clever architecture and skilled craftsmanship inside and out; with many hand hewn furnishings as well. It's truly a Dream Cabin! Upon entering the cabin, it seemed like I was stepping into a Fairytale. I rather imagined that's how Goldilocks felt when she saw the welcoming interior of the Three Bears' Cabin. However; in the Starfire Cabin, nothing is too hot, too hard, or too anything. Everything about this cabin is JUST RIGHT!

Starfire Cabin is the hidden gem of Northern Idaho

  • 5 of 5

George and Kristina's hand-crafted cabin is an ideal getaway. The cabin is breathtaking. A rustic log cabin with modern amenities (electricity, plumbing, heat). It is located in a beautiful area with tons of hiking on the grounds and nearby. We cannot say enough good things about this gem.

Beautiful, Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to go and get unplugged. No phone, no TV, no internet, no cell tower. It was brilliant- a perfectly relaxing two days. This beautiful log cabin, along with a lot of the furniture inside was crafted by hand by the owner using wood found on his 40 acre property. You can feel the love that went into it. I cannot say enough about the craftsmanship and quality. This is a getaway I will not soon forget.

Starfire Cabin is a hand built log cabin nestled in the forests of North Idaho. Located 5 minutes from Idaho's largest lake and surrounded by massive cedar trees and organic gardens this cabin is truly one of a kind.

Starfire Cabin is located on 40 acres surrounded by lush organic gardens, hiking and biking trails, ponds, and beautiful aspen and cedar trees.

This cabin is a haven of peace, love, and tranquility. The only sounds you hear are the soft wind rustling through the aspen leaves. 20 years of hard work and love have transformed this property into a sanctuary to reconnect, relax, and enjoy the little things.
