I love this house. I have been coming to Idaho every summer for almost 20 years and have stayed in many locations around the lake. This side offers more sun, better views and wonderful, cleaner water for swimming. This home has accommodated my family when large or small groups have joined me. As my grandson said the first time we stayed in this house, 'this is my dream come true'. It is good exercise getting from the house to the beach area as the hill is a little steep if anyone in your group has trouble navigating. "The deck over the water is wonderful for relaxing or swimming. The kids have immediate access to their water activities and can jump in the hot tub when done if chilled. The outdoor eating area has proved many evenings of shared meals before we go down to the water and have a campfire for the kids. I will continue coming to this house as long as it is rented out.
My whole family has stayed in this home for the past three years. We love the house, the fire pit, the BBQ patio, and the kids love the hot tub.
Wonderful place to stay for a few days while skiing Schweitzer and visiting Sandpoint. We like the Ponder Point location with easy 10 minute access to Sandpoint and easy access to Schweitzer Mountain. The lake loses about 6-8 feet of water in the winter months, but it turned out that this made it wonderful for walking on the shore line and exploring the area - total surprise that we loved each morning. The view and the lighting from the living room are wonderful. Hot tub views can't be beat. Nice downstairs for TV watching and lounging which keeps the upstairs for conversation and reading and looking across the lake. Kitchen was great for cooking and eating with kids as well. Two notes - home is a little dark upstairs, but nothing that causes problems Floors are a little slippery for kids (and adults) in socks. We were a small group, but the price was perfect for the quality and convenience of this house, even with just our 4 person family. We kept saying that it must be incredible in the summer because of all the outdoor amenities, but even in winter it was a blast. Thank you for letting us share your home
This home was beautiful and very conveniently located for outdoor activities (sledding, Schweitzer, Sandpoint) and easy to find. We loved the home! Exceptionally clean and modern. The kitchen was completely stocked, for any meal preparation we would've wanted to do. There was plenty of room for the 9 of us (5 adults, 4 children). The staff at the rental office were all very helpful and friendly. I would rent this home again in a minute!
Stayed for 4 nights in the middle of summer. House was a great layout, dealing with the managers was exceptional, things were clean and the privacy that all the trees provided was amazing. It came well equipped with games and toys, and the bbq area was stocked and ready for use. The hot tub was clean with a fresh refill and ran off bromine (a lot better for your skin than chlorine). This is the third property I've stayed at in Sandpoint now, for the price I'd say this is the best bang for your buck.
Great house with more room than you will expect. One of the few places I have been where the home actually looks better in person than in the pictures. We not only enjoyed the back yard but the front was equally as fun for the kids with the basketball hoop, horseshoe pits, etc. We had two families of 4 and it worked perfectly. Nicely furnished and stocked with everything that you can think of. We also liked the location, very close to amenities but far enough away from the town to ensure a very quiet and wonderful vacation.
We had multiple family members stay in this home when they came to visit. It has a great layout for privacy and is kid friendly. We had a couple of elderly relatives that were able to be a part of the group by having them stay in the upstairs (main level) of the home. They were able to enjoy watching the kids play in the lake and fish, from the screen room off the kitchen. The view, hot tub, volleyball net and front yard, as well as the BBQ area and back yard were perfect for us! We will definitely book this home for our family when they visit again
