This lakefront ranch home on the Sunnyside Peninsula between Sandpoint and Hope, Idaho, is uniquely situated on the north shore of Idaho's largest lake, Pend Oreille, at Hawkins Point. A 20-minute drive from downtown Sandpoint, the property sits on a 30-plus acre estate abutting state forest with 800 feet of private shoreline. Just a 35-minute drive away is Idaho's largest ski resort, Schweitzer Mountain. The 2,500 sf, comfortable house with outdoor hot tub is freshly remodeled and redecorated.
This 2,500-square-foot home sits on rural lakefront acreage that's been in the same family since the 1940s. The home is surrounded by Lake Pend Oreille, horse pastures, state forestland, and private and public shoreline. The property includes a private beach with a dock across the road from the house protected by a privacy fence. This beach at the west end of the property includes a tipi for rent available May through October along with amenities such as an outdoor shower, fire pit and horseshoe pits. To have full access to this private beach in season, consider renting the tipi as well. All guests have access to 800 feet of shoreline, two private beaches with docks, and a sitting area in the trees between the two beaches. The house includes an outdoor hot tub, large deck and concrete patio for enjoying the outdoors. A county road separates the house from the private shoreline. Nearby at Hawkins Point is a public boat dock with concrete launch. The public dock area and private beach are a two-minute walk from the house.
Recently remodeled and professionally decorated, this lakefront home features vintage furnishings, antiques, beautiful artwork and collectibles. Experience lakeside living in a country setting on a family estate located on a prominent geographic feature, Hawkins Point on Lake Pend Oreille. See bald eagles, Canada geese and other migrating waterfowl as well as deer, turkeys and otters. Pick fruit in season from the many cherry, apple and pear trees on the property, as well as grapes and raspberries in the garden. Walk the 30-plus acres surrounded by 60-some acres of state forestland and enjoy stellar views of the lake and mountains surrounding this special spot on the Sunnyside Peninsula.
Inside the home are comfortable furnishings, a fully-stocked kitchen and sleeping accommodations for up to nine guests. Add an RV site or tipi rental and host a small family reunion or wedding on-site.
Guests have access to the entire home, except for the basement and one bedroom, and the surrounding family estate land, 800 feet of private shoreline and two beaches/docks, outdoor hot tub and other amenities. Respect the privacy of tipi guests (when applicable) and quiet time from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. Do not enter fenced areas where horses are present or outbuildings.

The property includes two other homes and three RV sites as well as a seasonal tipi vacation rental, so you may encounter other guests, residents or family members and their dogs. The two other homes are on the opposite side of the property on a separate driveway and not visible from the house. Guests may have to share or alternate usage of the hot tub. A gravel county road (speed limit 35) separates the house from the private shoreline. Be prepared to cross the road to access the beaches. If the tipi on the beach at the east end is rented, please respect the privacy of its guests. Tipi guests don't have exclusive use of that beach and dock; however, they do have quiet time from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. There is a whole 'nother beach and dock as well as a sitting area and hammock spot on the property for guests to enjoy. There is plenty of room for everyone! Consider renting the tipi as well to have more full usage of the private beach closest to the house.
The host's shop and barns are on the property as well and are off-limits to guests. The owner may access outbuildings, move equipment or be present on other areas on the property while guests are staying in the house. The property also includes five resident equines (two horses and three mules), and guests are not allowed inside the fences with them; however, they may pet or feed them treats from the other side of the fence. The mules are friendly with people but not dogs. Keep your dogs leashed and outside the fenced horse pastures at all times for their safety.
During summer and especially on weekends, you may encounter heavier traffic and parked vehicles along a half-mile stretch of Sunnyside Access or at the Hawkins Point public boat dock and ramp. Watch for traffic, people and wildlife on the road at all times.
Dogs will only be allowed if pet fees are paid in advance along with a $300 refundable deposit. Be respectful of the property and other guests you may encounter. Please ask for permission to invite other guests who are not included in the reservation to enjoy the property with you. We don't charge a cleaning fee, so please leave the house clean. Strip sheets and pillowcases from the beds you use and start laundry before you go. Load the dishwasher and set it to run before you check out. Sweep the floors. Shower before using the hot tub, wear shoes to the tub and supervise children. No horseplay, splashing or fooling around in the tub. If guests misuse the tub or leave the house messy, there will be a minimum $50 cleaning fee added to your reservation. Dogs must be friendly, well-behaved, and good with other dogs and people. No dogs on furniture! Two dogs maximum and add $25 per dog per stay payable through the resolution center. We have accommodations for horses, too, for an extra boarding fee of $10 per animal per night. No motorized use on the property. Thank you for making this fun and affordable for everyone!

I'm a backcountry horse woman, downhill skier and bicyclist who loves the outdoors and being active. I recently retired from working professionally as an editor for a local publishing company for 25 years, editing Sandpoint Magazine, Schweitzer Magazine and books, such as trail guides and natural history titles. I have one dog, Beau, whom I call a North Idaho hound terrier, one cat who's old and mostly stays inside, and an Arabian/quarter horse mare named Bunny (no, I didn't name her!).
Originally from Wisconsin, I grew up in North Idaho riding horses, skiing, snowmobiling, dirt biking and voraciously reading books. While I was growing up in Sandpoint and Bayview in the 1970s-80s, I lived without electricity and running water three different times, so I'm not afraid of outhouses or roughing it.
After graduating from Sandpoint High School in 1985, I moved back to Madison, Wisconsin, to study journalism at the University of Wisconsin. I returned to Sandpoint in 1990, bought property, married, built a house, raised a son and stepdaughter, got unmarried, and am now married to my present partner, Mike, whom I convinced to join me in offering vacation rentals. We formed Twin Cedars Camping and Vacation Rentals LLC in 2014 with the goal of semi-retiring together. Between the two of us and our properties, we have two homes, three RV sites, a camping cabin and a tipi available. We plan to live in each of our homes for half the year, while the other home is open as a vacation rental.
I'm a home brewer who's passionate about good beer, cooking from scratch, and seemingly endless home improvement projects. Mike is a private pilot, and we enjoy flying around the area and airplane camping, as well as backcountry trail riding and horse camping.
I love having guests and sharing my knowledge of the area. We live in an outdoor paradise, and we like to share our pieces of paradise with others.
