Rustic dog-friendly cabin with a wood stove and mountain views
Breathe in the fresh mountain air and admire gorgeous lake views at this rustic two-bedroom Sagle vacation rental. A quiet retreat with a balcony overlooking the woods, even your four-legged best friend is welcome here.
You're just minutes from Garfield Bay and on Lake Pend Oreille, the largest lake in the Idaho panhandle and one of the state's deepest. All sorts of outdoor activities, ranging from skiing to hiking to boating and much more are available nearby, so get ready for some nature-filled fun! Please note, a 4x4 vehicle is recommended to avoid spinning out on the gravel and there is no room to park or maneuver a boat trailer.
This two-story home is a bucolic mountain retreat, perfect for the whole family. Fresh-cut wood awaits you on your arrival outside the entrance. The living/dining room boasts a rustic dining table with seating for five as well as two lounge chairs and a two-seat coffee table. Relax by the wood stove (wood is provided) as you admire the outdoors through the picture windows.
The cozy wooden kitchen has enough amenities to keep you happy. There's a four-burner gas stove, a French-door fridge, a dishwasher, and a French press coffee maker for your morning cup of joe. Enjoy your scrambled eggs and bacon at the two-seat breakfast as you examine the morning paper.
A ground-floor bedroom boasts a dresser, queen bed, and twin bunk beds, perfect for the younger members of your party or a small family looking for privacy. There's a bathroom down the hall with a corner shower as well as a front-loading washer and dryer.
Head upstairs to the comfortable master suite, complete with hardwood floors, a queen bed, baby crib, and a small table with two chairs. An antique dresser occupies part of the space and a private balcony immediately makes you want to head outside for a glass of wine while watching the sunset. A full bath features double sinks as well as a tub with a view of the environs.
A small room off the master features a futon, making this home ideal for up to eight guests. Dogs are welcome with prior approval for an additional fee.
Sagle is a small mountain town just five miles south of bustling Sandpoint. Hiking, biking, hunting, and fishing are all popular activities. Meander through tree-lined streets or relax at one of the area beaches. It's the perfect place for the whole family to get away from it all.
I got married at Garfield Bay, so my parents and I reserved the Osprey Perch to have a space to prep everything. Loved that it was pet-friendly! I was a little worried about the fact that there's no curtains on any of the windows, but it ended up not being a problem. I will say the pictures make the space look bigger than it is, but in the end it worked out for the number of people we had. The only down-side of this cabin, is that the walls are paper-thin. If you plan to sleep in the bedrooms upstairs, make sure no one plays any games or music that could get loud downstairs. It can get very loud when playing games downstairs and people are trying to sleep upstairs, even with doors closed. You can hear every footstep upstairs because the ceiling downstairs is the floor upstairs. Also, there's a walk-in closet upstairs that is the perfect size for a Queen air matress. I totally slept in there the night before my wedding. :P

We enjoyed the views from the home in addition to sitting around the wood stove at night enjoying the fire. There really are no curtains as others have noted but the view is so amazing we didn't care. Because there's no cell service or internet it's a great place to disconnect. Our two golden retrievers enjoyed themselves and the house is set up great for those who have dogs. The beach at Garfield Bay is a 20 minute walk away, there's a shop for any grocery items you might have forgotten, plus they are well stocked with beer and wine. There's also a small bar in Garfield Bay. Easy access to nearby mountain bike and hiking trails at Mineral Point. Sandpoint is about 15 minutes away if you can pull yourself away from the tranquility. We enjoyed ourselves and can't wait to go back!

We had a great long weekend at Garfield bay. Cabin was great. Everything we needed including a full size gas BBQ for grilling our cedar plank salmon and bourbon marinated flat iron steak! Friends from Florida were impressed with the cute cabin and quiet bay. The second floor suite was upscale “cabin” and very private ! Weather wasn’t great so we had a cozy fire in the cast iron fireplace.... very enjoyable. We made wonderful memories!
Would definitely stay at THE OSPREY PERCH again!
Rhonda D.Nov 2018
We loved the location, the view of the lake, nice places for walks, the cozy wood stove, and that there was no wifi or cellular coverage. It was a great place to unplug and recharge!
Kaytlyn G.Oct 2018
We loved this cabin. Great location, off the grid. Note that there isn’t really a living room or hangout area except for the dining space. Not a problem, but good to know.
Lisa P.Sep 2018
The cabin is clean and has a nice view of the lake. The upstairs deck in great for morning coffee/tea and relaxing for a glass of wine in the evenings. Downstairs porch is perfect for bar-b-queuing and leisurely lunches. It is our favorite place to escape and just a short drive to Sandpoint.
Matthew F.Aug 2018
This is the perfect place if you are looking to get away from cell phone coverage! We had a family get together and enjoyed every minute. The guys were able to fish in the bay and catch some small mouth bass.

We love the cozy cabin and the view.

Me qnd my family of 8 stayed and enjoyed out time. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything you could need when away from home! The only thing missing was curtains for the bedroom windows. Great place we will be back!

My wife and I were looking for a place that was remote and quiet and we found exactly that in this comfy little cabin. We relaxed on the deck, watched the deer and enjoyed the peace and quiet of the lake. The location made it easy to drive to Sandpoint, the Bird Museum and numerous awesome hiking hot-spots. It's an easy walk to Odie's general store for any forgotten supplies and kayak rentals. We found the cabin well stocked with dishes, cookware, etc but be sure to check the coffeemaker/French press. We found it still rather dirty from the previous renter.
Still, overall this was a fantastic getaway cabin and we look forward to our return visit to Northern Idaho.
We encourage all guests to reach out to our Customer Experience Agents so that we are able to take care of any issues the guests have once in the home. We have local staff who are able to come to the unit and do another clean for guests satisfaction.

This home was very comfortable and cozy, not to mention very clean. The beds were all very comfortable, which is very important to us. It was located a bit further away than we thought, but the instructions on finding the home were very clear. And since it was in a very quiet, nice area, the extra drive time wasn't minded. We saw deer every day we stayed, which is always nice. We were in the area visiting family, and we were only sad we didn't have more time to spend at the house.

We were disappointed in this rental. Although we love rustic, we had no cell service at the house. Based on the listing, seeing that it was next to Garfield Bay and the public boat launch, we brought our boat with us from Northern California. After leaving home, we received an email from the manager with check-in instructions. The email informed us that we could not bring a boat up the drive-way. Wish we had known that before leaving home!! The house was clean, however, there were wasps in the house which annoyed our dogs. No wood was available at the house for the fireplace. Disappointed and left early.
We apologize for the disappointments this guest experienced. We have updated our information to address the concerns about lack of cell service and the driveway. Please note there is a house phone available for local calls. We believe the wasps must have entered the home when the guest was unloading from the car as there were no issues with wasps while housekeeping was prepping the home. We did leave some wood for the guests, and the home also has gas heat. Thanks!

Beautiful place and good view.
Leigh J C.May 2018
View, description of details, proximity to ideal location, cleanliness, availability of supplies, privacy - all excellent. Manager responsive to phone inquiries, once we left area to achieve signal. Difficult to find, no cell signal for us; issue with key box code.
Once we were settled it was an excellent stay.
Robert O.May 2018
Nice spot with perfect lake view through the trees. Quiet and comfortable. The short walk to the beach, which we made many times with the dogs, allowed us the opportunity to meet a couple neighbors and made us feel like locals.
Louis S.Apr 2018
Stayed here for a couple days with a few friends to relax, read, enjoy some drinks, play some chess, and discuss life. Had a great time. The pictures fairly accurately depict the cabin. It's in good order, clean, and well-stocked. The wood stove is in need of maintenance and the roof should be de-mossed. Otherwise perfect.
Rebecca E.Oct 2017
Cabin was beautiful and peaceful! Great view from the upstairs deck. Home was clean and well stocked. We enjoyed our stay very much!
Jason .Sep 2017
great location- nice and quiet- smelled terrible and bring your own pillows. Also no comfortable furniture to relax on.
Kathryn K.Sep 2017
My boyfriend and I stayed here for a mid-week break. The cabin is clean, charming, and close to Sandpoint. Highly recommended!
Melisa H.Aug 2017
This was a very relaxing, very serene vacation for us - and this lovely cabin had everything to do with it! We loved eating breakfast and dinner at the cute farm table with a view of the lake and in the afternoon we would have a snack and read up on the balcony - such a beautiful view of the lake. The cabin had everything we needed to cook and was very well kept. It was wonderful to have a place where we could bring the dogs - it is a nice 10-15 min walk down to the beach and there is the perfect spot to let the dogs swim and play. Overall, we had a fantastic experience at Osprey Perch and Sagle/Sandpoint!

I am an widowed mom of 5 babies. This was an amazing place to go for peace and quite and be able to re-boot. I had such an wonderful time. I can't wait to go back.
Next time I might bring the whole family.
Anyone who stays here will be amazed at its beauty and tranquility.

The driveway isn't as bad as it makes it sound. I have a small Honda Fit and I was able to get up it no problem. In the winter, or heavy rain, the driveway might be an issue. Quiet, no internet, no cell reception (T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular) which was exactly what we wanted. There's a small tube TV, with VCR and DVD in the main bedroom, and an assortment of random movies, though we never bothered, as we were there to unplug. Be sure to bring pantry basics with you, most vacasa homes I've stayed at in the past have had an assortment of goods left by previous tenants; not here. There was salt, and pepper (and the stated basics like dish soap, shampoo etc. that all locations have), so if you plan on cooking bring everything you need (not an issue for us). Another thing to note: there are no blinds anywhere. The main bedroom faces the east, and in the summer if you want to sleep in, you're going to be hit by a bolt of sunlight at 5 AM. There are only 2 cozy chairs in the main room, but not an issue for us, we were only 3. I couldn't see there being more than 6 adults/children tops fitting here, other than maybe squeezing a couple of infants in there as well. Highly recommended location, and will probably return annually.

Had a wonderful time at the property. Great location. Very relaxing. Great accommodations. Everything welse needed was provided.
Anna N.Apr 2017
What a great little cabin!! I was drawn to it instantly just from the pictures, and It did not disappoint! This cabin is way out there... prepare at least a 30 minute trip to the closest town Sandpoint. The view is blocked by trees and other cabins but you can still see water. Everything inside was clean and all you could need in the kitchen. The bed upstairs isn't the most comfortable, and the bathtub is pretty small. But there was a tv with DVD and VCR player and a box of movies. I'd suggest bringing your own movies and board games. Service is very low but enough to send a text. I would also bring extra wood. There was hardly enough for one fire but we came prepared.
We hit up the Captians Table bar (about 3 minutes away) for drinks and some games of pool. It was very quite but this is the off season.
The weather wasn't great.. never really got a good view of the lake which was disappointing because we've never been. And it was snowing hard when we left. But we had a great getaway weekend, exploring Idaho and taking in the views! I highly reccomend this cabin- it would be so fun in the summer! I had a bad experience with Vacasa in the past, but no complaints about this one.
P.S. they aren't lying about the driveway being steep. It wasn't a problem for us, but it was tight for our diesel truck. Wouldn't be possible in winter.

Very nice cabin. Smooth transaction.
Rebecca K.Nov 2016
Super warm welcoming feeling at this cabin. Beautiful view, loved the little porch off the master bedroom. Really liked the kitchen was able to make a real dinner with what dishes were provided. My favorite part was the Christmas lights on the inside and Elvis and Lynrd
Katie T.Oct 2016
A cute little cabin. Lovely view. Wood stove warmed up the place in a hurry.
Ric A.Sep 2016
My wife and I enjoyed our stay here. The setting is peaceful and quiet and the view very pleasing.
Erin B.Aug 2016
It was fantastic, beautiful, and relaxing!
Jacob E.Jul 2016
The view is beautiful, the beach is close, and the cabin itself meets every need! We had high expectations for our honeymoon, and this retreat met and exceeded them!
Denise Z.Jul 2016
We came from CA for our sons wedding on Lake Pend Orielle. We loved our stay. It surpassed my expectations. The cabin had everything we needed. The beds were comfy and the surroundings were breathtaking. Tge driveway is steep but not too scary.
Christina M.Jul 2016
Had a great time the view was beautiful
Tim S.Jul 2016
This was our most enjoyable stay to date! We simply feel in love with this property and location. So many places to explore and experience close by. We will be back again. We have already been sharing our experience with friends and family.
James O.Jun 2016
Took family to visit North Idaho and Silverwood Amusement Park, the cabin was a great home base as we wandered and explored the area. Comfortable and clean. Enjoyable location that seems private and quiet.
Sharon B.May 2016
Enjoyed the vacation home, thanks for sharing. Great view of the Lake.
Christopher J R.Oct 2015
The cabin was a great place for my hubby and I to get away and unplug. We both enjoyed not having a TV, internet, or cell service for the week. We explored the area as well as hung out at the cabin, built a fire, and worked on a puzzle. Would love to come back and stay again.
Deborah S.Jul 2015
This is a lovely little home overlooking Garfield Bay. Be prepared to be off the grid with no cell, tv or internet service which would detract from the peaceful beauty of the surroundings. The lake is pristine and majestic. I highly recommend this spot for a relaxing and memorable vacation.
Calla P.Jul 2015
The house was lovely and was adequate for our vacation plans (as we didn't need Wifi or a TV etc.). We were under the impression that the house had water access, as I had called to confirm this prior to booking. Unfortunately that was not the case, and we had to drive to the public area to get to the water. When we arrived at the house, there was not a book explaining the property/area, which is something I am used to when renting vacation homes. Our cell phones did not work there, so I was grateful there was a home phone for us to use for emergencies and to contact Vacasa. Our power went out for the afternoon, which is something that one should know is a possibility when renting a house in this semi-remote area.
Gail G.Jun 2015
Just a fantastic stay from start to finish. We will be back.
