The fully furnished romantic and charming Guest house with gardens is approximately 1500 square feet and includes a full master bedroom with an attached full bath, and it's own sliding door out onto the deck overlooking the lake. The parlor room doubles as a second bedroom with a fold out couch. The Guest home has a second full bath as well off the library room. The library room is setup to accommodate one of the FrontGate queen EZ beds when needed. The comfortable feel of the guest home includes a full living room with 46 inch flat screen with DirecTV and DVD player. The Guest home offers guest WiFi privileges. The full kitchen includes both oven, range, and microwave and refrigerator/freezer. The unit has a full laundry room with state of the art washer and dryer and large pantry and closet areas. The living room and dining room both include awesome views of the lake including two sliding doors to the lake and mountain views. There is a separate reading room and library with an extensive collection of literature. The deck has both it's own barbecue and fire pit with a lovely enclosed yard area. The property is private and has a wonderful diversity of wildlife and yet the beach, docks, restaurant, bar, and marina are all only a couple miles away. Your view of the lake and surrounding mountains is considered by long term locals to be as good as it gets. While sitting outside you can hear the sound of the adjacent stream running, and access elk trails from the yard that lead up into the wilderness behind us. The town of Hope has wonderful character and captures what a mountain lakeside village should be. The guest house is connected to our main house where we live, by a lovely atrium corridor that opens into a stone courtyard with fountain overlooking the lake. Hope, Idaho is considered the most beautiful location on Lake Pend Oreille near Sandpoint. Sandpoint has recently been chosen by USA TODAY NEWSPAPER as 'THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SMALL TOWN IN AMERICA'. Sandpoint was chosen primarily because of the beauty of Lake Pend Oreille. We are located directly over Lake Pend Oreille in the town of Hope...which both locals and visitors agree is the most beautiful lake location. It is situated in the panhandle of Idaho and surrounded by three beautiful mountain ranges. British Columbia, Canada is only 58 miles north to the border from the lake. The surrounding region holds some of the most diverse landscape, wildlife, fishery, and natural beauty in North America. The lake environment is considered one of the last pristine large mountain lake regions. Sandpoint is a lovely town on the lake with a population of about 10,000, and offers wonderful art galleries, shopping and excellent dining on the water. Coeur D'Alene is only 46 miles away to the south. The lake climate is very temperate and provides great amounts of locally and naturally grown fruits and vegetables as well as locally caught fish and game. The recreational opportunities are unparalleled. Boating sports, sailing, fishing, hiking, skiing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and many more summer and winter lake and mountain activities are available in abundance. You will enjoy the best night of sleep of your life here.
We have spent the last 20 years raising two children near Telluride, Colorado. With the empty nest upon us, we acquired this beautiful property as part of a lifetime dream to live on this particular lake in the mountains of northern Idaho. We are excited to be able to share the magic of this romantic location with others whom might want or need a 'Getaway' to someplace truly special. We invite you to join us in discovering this wonderful place.
Leslie Gleason purchased this chateau / country house in 2012
It represents the best of what lake and mountain living provide and offers both privacy and wildlife but still allows for easy access to near by areas for recreational and more urban activities. The town of Hope nestles along the edge of the lake and is still unspoiled and charming with great locals and lovely setting.
The Guest house decks run the entirety of the building and wrap towards the upper end of the lake providing broad ever changing views of the surrounding mountain ranges and different parts of the lake. There is a lovely courtyard with water fountain separating the Guest house from the balance of the property and providing for excellent privacy for both. The towering pines and diverse plants and flowers surrounding the Guest home make for the 'classic' mountain lake setting. The Guest home has it's own enclosed yard area and the interior has a wonderful charm and romantic feel that creates an authentic 'Getaway' mood. The guest house has a wonderful history in that it is on the site of the original homestead established back in 1910 and retains the nostalgic flavor of the original lake side cottage as it was built on one of the most picturesque locations around the lake.
What an amazing weekend away! We felt like we were coming home, with the wonderful welcome from Leslie and Hart. - You two are fantastic people! We couldn't have asked for a better place for a family getaway.
See you soon,
Kyle, Jenn, & Weston
Stayed 2 nights with my teen daughter. Warmly greeted by owners and given tour of beautiful property. Guest house is separated from owners home by pretty gated courtyard. Owners took time to help us map out activities of interest, with recommendations only locals would know about. Perfect blend of personal attention and privacy. Situated on mountainside with gorgeous lake and mountain views. Sat on deck watching stunning sunsets while listening to the nearby creek. Close to hiking, beaches, state parks, national forest trails, small town amenities, Schweitzer ski resort, and Sandpoint - a gem of a town with views, arts (theatre and galleries,) and all vacation services one needs. We both enjoyed the extensive library in the guest house. We felt at home, and I'd love to stay there again.
Upon our arrival my wife, 2 sons and I were welcomed immediately by Hart and Leslie. They took time to give us a tour of the property and gave us free rain of their fruit trees and plants. The plums are to die for! Great views, comfortable beds and everything you need to make you feel like home. We can't say enough good things about the owners, they will go out of their way to do anything you need. Truly a wonderful vacation and a little piece of paradise. Thanks for letting us into your home.
A lot of care was taken in making the house as welcoming and comfortable as possible. The views were gorgeous and the house itself very charming.
Our whole family had a great Thanksgiving here and are planning to come back. The kitchen was well stocked, the house is very tidy and clean, the atmosphere is cozy and the views of the lake are spectacular! Hart and Leslie were more than helpful with recommendations and their availability for questions. We comfortably slept 6 and the dining table was plenty big for games and extra guests.
I can’t say enough about what the owners have done with this property to make you feel at home. Everything and I mean everything that you could possibly have at home you have here and more. We were greeted at our car when we arrived and informed about the home and the wonderful area of Hope. So much to see and do in the area including great restaurants. Make sure to check out Beyond Hope about 5 min away for an amazing view while enjoying a cold beer on a hot day at the beach. We liked the area so much we are seriously considering buying some property to enjoy for years to come. Until we do that we will always stay at this property. Thanks Again!!!
Location easy to find with good directions. The view is better than the pictures on-line, very awesome. It is so private and yet with a great view. The nearby (1-3 miles) recommended restaurants have a lakefront view too! The food was excellent. The house gets a ton of light and views from every room except the second bedroom! Definitely recommend this property! Owners very helpful and cordial.
