About Rachel Seitz

I am a small town girl at heart, raised in Sandpoint but now living in Bend, OR and loving the sunshine and everything the area has to offer. I am a professional and work in healthcare. Five things I wouldn't want to live without are my husband, sunshine, red wine, yummy food, and the occasional very sweaty workout. I have listed on VRBO for the last couple years and also frequently use it to rent vacation homes and have had many great experiences. I often travel with friends or family and enjoy staying together and experiencing new places. I hope you enjoy my precious little gem (at least in my opinion) of an escape in Sandpoint.

Rachel Seitz purchased this house in 1996

Why Rachel Seitz chose Lake Pend Oreille

It is a beautiful piece of property and I wish I could give it the attention it needs. I decided to update it and share it with others as a vacation home so it does not sit neglected and so I can still use it myself on occasion. Sandpoint is the best small town in the country in my opinion, however I will try not to oversell it and let you experience it for yourself.

What makes this house unique

The large pine trees, serene view from the living room, and peaceful environment are just a few of the reasons I enjoy it here.

Great get away!

  • 5 of 5

This little place was exactly what we needed as a get away. Very quiet and well furnished. Had everything we needed. The property is great for our little dogs to run around, and far enough from the road that they didn't constantly need to be on leash. The bed is comfy, and the couch was good for the occasional afternoon snooze. We will be back. Thank you for letting us rent your little house!

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Boy does time fly by when your in such a peaceful place! We spent mornings and evenings on the back deck watching deer with their babies, listening and watching the squirrels and just totaling enjoying nature. It doesn't get any better than this! The amenities of the cabin were perfect even up to the dog bowl. Our dog Tomah enjoyed sitting on the deck with us with ears perked up watching the squirrels. Thank you for having such a great place available...we look forward to future plans on vacationing again at such a wonderful setting for us and our K9 traveling partner and the enjoyment at being outdoors and close to great amenities in the area.

The perfect place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

Pretty, great location and all the amenities of home. This little gem is a delightful place to stay. The owners have done an excellent job and have thought of everything. It was perfect for our visit to Sandpoint, being located in what feels like the country, but very close to town and all it offers.

Rustic on the outside and up to date on the inside, it is clean and just right for 2 People. Check it out!

Had some problems but it was CLEAN!

  • 4 of 5

It was very clean and comfortable and we appreciated that. We were glad we arrived during the daytime because it would have been VERY difficult to find it in the evening hours. The signage for the number for the house was hidden by tall grass and weeds. As it was, it took us a while to find it.

We were there for our son's wedding and on the morning of the wedding at 8:00 a.m. the power went out...as we were getting ready for the wedding. At first we were told it must be just us and to check the switches in the house; however, it also happened to at least one other person, so I'm not sure what was going on. NOT the most opportune time for this to happen. We were told it should be back on by around 12:30 but there was no way we could wait that long. We had to try to make other arrangements to get ready.

Other than that, it seemed a nice enough place. There were problems with hornet/wasps outside on the stairway though.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you found the place clean - that is something that is very important to me. The power was out in the area - Avista Utilities is the local power provider and it was a problem somewhere in the system and yes others in the area were affected. This was very unfortunate given the timing of your son's wedding but completely out of my control. It is rural Idaho! I responded promptly to your husband's phone call and immediately called the power company to find out the status and called back within a couple minutes with the update on when power should be resumed. I actually helped him troubleshoot by explaining that it was not the breakers if all the power in the house was out - he insisted on checking the breakers anyway so I directed him to locate the breaker box. I will make sure to take care of the wasps and tall grass in front of the sign, thanks for the feedback - the property is listed as "cabin in the woods" and fighting back nature is a constant battle. Sounds like next time a hotel might be a better fit for your expectations.
