Yvonne Blalack or Lisa Martin purchased this condo in 2013
After purchasing our first condo in this complex and seeing the great reviews from our guests there, we couldn't resist when a second one became available. As with our other rental, this one is also overlooks the lake and has private parking loot. We are located within a mile of 3 marinas, multiple restaurants, a fitness center, boat rentals and so much more.
We have taken a special interest in furnishing this two story condo with families in mind. Along with all of the activities our area has to offer the loft is outfitted with a full gaming area for the kids and the headphones for you. The beauty of this condo and our amazing area are just what you need to make those unforgetable family memeories.
It is hard to put into words the perfect family holiday. It started wtih Yvonne our Hostess and the warm welcome she gave our family. She ensured that this did not feel like a rental but our own home. The condo is very confortable with more room than you will need, including a loft area our son absolutely loved!! The bedrooms are wonderful with comfortable beds, nicely decorated and bathrooms that were clean and stocked with towels and everythign we needed. Lots of room in the dining room however we rarely used it as all of our meals were enjoyed on the deck watching some of the most beautiful sunsets we have ever seen. The lake was so fun with a rental shop a 2 min walk away, but the kayaks and water toys in the garage kept us busy as well. The fishing was great as well, we caught Perch and Trout and will look at chartering one of the boats next time for some bigger catches. We made the trip to Schwitzer Mountain Resort as well. 30 minutes door to door and would recommend this as a great place to stay off the mountain as the drive is lovely and not too far after a day on the hill. Sand Point is very close, 20 Min maybe which has lots of great restaurants (Bricks and Barley has best pizza ever made by man), Beyond Hope has a fantatic restaurant overlooking the lake and beach. One of our last days was spent at SilverWood about a 45 min drive and so fun and definitely worth the short drive. Overall the single best trip our family has had. We will be back ever year without hesitation. Thanks Yvonne, you made our summer!!!
Yvonne was an absolutely amazing lady to meet! She is truly the exact type of owner you trust and know that she wants you to love her place as much as she does. I spent the last two weeks of July at this wonderful property - I had great access to go anywhere I wanted to bike or hike.
Everything described in Yvonne's listing was above and beyond what I expected. The property had been recently painted and looked wonderful in lovely warm yellow tones. The decorating truly made me feel like I was at the lake! The king bed in the master bedroom was better than my own bed at home and there seems to be no expense missed on sheets and bedding. I appreciated the huge supply and quality of towels. The kitchen was well-stocked right down to the wine cork! The deck was truly my favorite spot in the early morning to watch geese, osprey and eagles and in the evening as the sunsets each night over the lake were totally stunning! The deck has comfortable patio furniture and when the starter on the bbq stopped working, Yvonne and Lisa brought a brand new one the next day!
While I had my own mountain bike, there were bikes available for use as well as a paddleboat and kayaks. I loved being able to walk down the stairs and sit on the beach area and spend a lot of time swimming. I was wondering if the marina area would be a problem, but it truly wasn't (surprisingly quiet!) and there are many people swimming in the condo area. As most properties along the lake know, there is a train track, but after a night or two I barely even noticed it as there was no blaring horn, just the rumbling of the train going by.
Yvonne had great ideas for where I could go for short hikes and bike rides, and I found the tourist information in Sandpoint very helpful. I was truly happy to be about 20 minutes outside of Sandpoint as the drive on Hwy 200 is absolutely beautiful. Sweet Lou's restaurant/bar was literally a few steps away and the food and service there was outstanding - there was even live music one night! This is a quiet property and truly helped me get relaxed and read and write! I was happy to be away from the 'hustle and bustle' of Sandpoint. Lastly, though I didn't bring my dog this time, Yvonne said they are 'pet friendly' and I wished I had brought my dog. It is without hesitation that I recommend this property and truly respect and admire Yvonne as an amazing owner! BUT, I get first dibs on coming back! Thanks again for this little gem!
