Lakefront home w/ private dock, two-level deck & beautiful views!

Your next northern Idaho vacation could be spent at this boater's paradise, a waterfront retreat on the shores of Hayden Lake with magnificent views of the water, forest, and mountains. You'll enjoy a tranquil location with plenty of privacy, as well as direct access to Hayden Lake with all sorts of waterfront perks. Park your boat at the private dock, relax on the spacious two-level deck, and enjoy a prime view of the sandbar - a favorite spot for boaters!


A wonderful place for fishing, hiking, swimming, and boating, this home sits directly on the eastern shores of Hayden Lake. Hayden Lake Marina is just 10 miles away, offering the perfect spot to watch boats come and go. Just a little bit farther at 11 miles west are Honeysuckle Beach, Hayden Lake Country Club, and other attractions in the town of Hayden Lake. You can also head 11 miles west to find the Avondale Golf Course. If you want to shop, dine, or explore public beaches and hiking trails, you can make the 19-mile journey to Coeur d'Alene with its charming city center and floating golf course. The kids will delight in a trip to Silverwood Theme Park (19 miles north) and skiers will relish in a visit to Silver Mountain Resort (55 miles east) for some of Idaho's best snow. Additionally, you can find some very good huckleberry picking in the readily accessible mountains just to the east of the lake cabin!

We loved the deck, the well stocked kitchen, cool rooms for sleeping downstairs and the great area for swimming.
Kyle C. Aug 2022
The home was great. Beautiful location with a great view. Worked perfect for our family. But unfortunately it was not cleaned well at all. Beds were dirty, kitchen floor was not cleaned well.

As others have said, this place could use some updates. The big pro here is the location! Tucked away down a gravel road, this is a beautiful, quiet setting. We purchased a couple inflatable kayaks and paddled around the lake the deck was a great spot to play cards, have a cocktail and enjoy the view. Traveling with teens we appreciated the the master on the main and two additional bedrooms downstairs. 2 decks, each with a view of the lake. The property management company really needs to address the ant and spider problem though, not the end of the world, but shouldn’t be an issue guests have to tolerate.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Jaycee, we are glad you enjoyed the location of our lovely home. We appreciate your feedback as a means to continually improve our homes, as well as our guest's comfort and satisfaction. We look forward to hosting you again in the future.

Very cool location. A little dated. You get your own private dock. Perfect spot for a weekend getaway on the lake! Was missing some basic amenities but overall a great stay!
Lynda S. May 2022
This was my sister and my second year stay. We love it there. We were able to kayak most days hike and go into town. We also got to meet the owner. Wonderful and thoughtful man. We will be going back again
Lori C. May 2022
The lake view was awesome! The home is equipped well enough for an extended stay.
LINDA A. Apr 2022

Janelle M. Aug 2021
We had beautiful weather and the view from this house is stunning. The floorplan was perfect for our family of seven which including grandparents grandkids and parents. My only complaint was that it was a bit dirty. The sheets and towels and dishes were clean so I wasOK with the fact that the couch, Carpet and Windows were dirty with lots of cobwebs everywhere. But we had a great time and would go again!
Manager response:
Hi Janelle, We apologize for the house not being cleaned as thoroughly as is our standard. Please know that local staff is available to assist with any cleanliness issues you encounter while in the home. We hope to get the chance to host you again! Thank you.

Great view. Easy access to water. Kitchen fully stocked. Plenty of towels. Very clean. Glad was aware no AC, brought fans, worked great. Only a couple problems…. almost ran out of toilet paper but had brought a roll from home. Only 1/4 roll paper towels in the home, but again brought my own roll. No dishwasher soap/tabs available. Deck has a very “sketchy” board, feels like going to break through any time now, and railing has broken board with make shift fix, both very unsafe. Upstairs bed fine but a little too soft for my liking.
Overall had great stay. Wonderful home. Would go again.
Manager response:
We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We will be sure to pass your suggestions along to our local manager who will work with our homeowner to make necessary upgrades. We look forward to hosting you again!

Great View, Great Rooms, Great Space.
Got lost when arriving, but figured it out. No A/C which wasn't a big deal, but just would recommend to bring plug in fans or have some there already.
Donald B. Jul 2021
The dock and swimming area was great. Stairs down to dock were fair. Great location. Upper deck railing has a broken cross support. Wire on deck railing is so small it's dangerous. Definitely not kid safe. Mattress in downstairs room is worn out. 2 fridge/freezers is great. Well pump pressure relief valve was broke when we arrived. Sprayed water in downstairs bathroom when pump came on. Screen doors are wore out. With some work Sandbar Point could be amazing.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us! We are so glad you had a great time! We take guest feedback seriously, and have forwarded this information to the local staff so they can review and update the home as needed for future guests.

If I had any complaint it was not having AC. Got a little stuffy. Overall still worth 5 stars
LYNDA S. May 2021
My sister and I had our first stay in Idaho. We love it so much we booked it again for next year. We saw many birds and kayaked the lake. Beautiful
Emily N. Apr 2021
Was told could not check in early due to extensive covid cleaning only to show up to dirty floors, carpet, bathroom counters, bugs in window sills, decks not swept off. Had to call Vacasa day of check in to get check in information. They were very slow to respond to messages via VRBO and only with 1/2 information from asked questions. House is very dated...nothing updated since it was built in the 80s. Even with the floor heaters turned all the way down, house was like a sauna. Shared driveway with neighbor, but then you pull off into the yard for parking. Loved all the big windows and the view is so beautiful. Dock is great! The old blue rocking chairs were the most comfortable to relax in and take in the view. Location is far down the very windy lake road. About 30 minutes to Hayden restaurants/stores, but seems forever on the windy road, so don't forget anything! I might stay again if it were the only house left on the lake to rent.
Sharon C. Sep 2020
Our days at the house were a great respite and time to bond. Because of the heavy smoke we stayed mostly indoors so missed the deck and canoeing but it was still very enjoyable. The kitchen is very well equipped and the house is very comfortable with beautiful views.

Great little cabin right on the lake. I would say here again!!
Flora G. Sep 2020
Beautiful Lakeside Views at this home with water access but the home itself is old and needs some love. The floors , end tables and bedside tables were dirty and outdoor area Could use a power wash and deck repairs as both decks and entry stairs move when you walk and the railing is moves when you push it so it becomes a safety issue as there is a large
Drop off. The kitchen stove was very old but functional and the kitchen was stocked well with cooking utensils, dishes and pans. The main bathtub floor also flexes when you are moving in the shower. Due to Covid, I spent the first hour recleaning surfaces. The bathrooms still has hair in the floor and the kitchen garbage can was grimy on the edges. You drive across and adjacent driveway as you access the property and it is steep which made A friend of ours spin out as he tried to exit.
Manager response:
Hi Flora! Thank you for staying with us! Thank you for sharing your feedback and bringing some items to our attention that may need some TLC. I have forwarded your feedback to the local staff so they can work to improve the house for future guests. We will follow-up with our housekeeping team to ensure future cleans will be completed to our standard. Please know that our guest services team is available 24 hours a day to assist should any concerns arise during your visit. We hope you choose to stay with us again!

Very clean and comfortable, the dock was great and the lake is beautiful. Very nice for a family vacation. I would definately stay again
Benjamin L. Jul 2020
This house comfortably accommodated three couples. The private dock is a great added touch for summer water toys. Very close to swim or paddleboard to the sandbar, which is a fun place to hang out on hot days. The kitchen is well stocked with high-quality gear, which we loved during our stay.

One thing to note is that this house is very close to Camp MiVoden, a church-affiliated summer camp. So when there are lots of campers around it can be a bit loud during the day and early evening with camp activities.
Sylvia H. Jul 2020
The home was clean...very dated for the price point the view was great but don’t expect ANY extras! Not enough towels, blankets, NO coffee, patio was dirty and not set up.

Nice deck overlooking the Lake. Dock is very nice. House was clean with all the amenities one would need. Would stay again
Trevor L. Aug 2019
We spent two nights here during mid August. There's no A/C so head's up. During the day no A/C isn't bad as you're probably lounging in the clear, warm water of Hayden Lake. At night however... it can be a tad uncomfortable when the humidity and temperature doesn't abate until late.

The private boat dock has a shallow draft with a soft, sandy bottom which is perfect as a home base for swimming, snorkeling, floaties, sunbathing. There's a small sandy beach along side and the water was clean, clear, and warm. We spent probably 2/3rds of our total time down at the dock and in the water. Very, very nice! Bring fishing poles and water toys.

The kitchen is well laid out and cooking is a pleasure. There's a nice gas grill on the deck, directly outside the kitchen. We used it a lot during our stay. Bring everything you'll want to eat as the drive into town is annoying and there is no market nearby (that we we're aware of).

There's cable TV and Internet. But hopefully you'll be enjoying the deck furniture and the excellent views.

Bathrooms are adequate, clean, and roomy.

Why only 4 star rating? The paddle pontoon boat prominently pictured in the listing was gone. Three of our guests were very much looking forward to using the paddle boat. I don't recall reading in the listing that the boat wasn't available, so perhaps I overlooked that and made a mistake. However I don't think that was the case as of 8/20/2019. So vacationer beware.

That said, we're definitely going to return next year.
Manager response:
Hi Trevor, We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at Sandbar Point! We are sorry for any confusion about the paddle pontoon boat - this boat is not available for renters to use, and is not a listed amenity of the home. We hope you are able to return soon!
Richard P. Aug 2019
One of the few properties with sandy beaches and the dock was very nice.
Natasha T. Jul 2019
Quaint home, lovely views, had a great time on the lake boating, fishing and swimming. Everyone was so friendly. Had a great time.
Glenn . May 2019
The views of the lake can't be properly captured in photos. Seclusion, yet close to town and quiet are all good reasons to book your stay here. I hope to be back soon.
Brian . May 2019
We had a great time. Thanks!
