Kootenai Bay Lodge epitomizes luxury, log home living on the lake. Imagine a 6 bedroom, 3-story home on a private, wooded lot with 254' of waterfront and your own bay to swim in. Sleeps 16. Incredible private dock, boat lift, jet ski lift, kayaks and paddle boards included too!

Kootenai Bay Lodge is a luxury retreat your family will want to return to year after year. Picture a 6,700 square foot log home, situated on a private, wooded retreat, with breathtaking views of Lake Pend Oreille and the surrounding mountains. Large Great Room, Family Room and Game Room, along with 6 bedrooms over 3 levels, allow for cherished time together — as well as quiet, rest-filled time apart. Ideal for families who long for an unhurried, peaceful, nature-filled vacation — where the timeless use of wood and stone connect the spirit to a simpler time. Family reunions, executive and spiritual retreats will also find a home here.

Influenced by the roots of it’s owners, Kootenai Bay Lodge combines Pacific Mountain Lodge with Adirondack Camp style. This well-crafted log home embodies strength, tranquility and peace. It’s that perfect balance of wood, stone and light. The sturdiness and endurance of 16” hand-hewn Tamarack logs, hand chinking, Alder laid floors, and a massive hand-stacked slate fireplace manifest the main living areas. Giant lakeside windows gateway panoramic views of 43 mile long Lake Pend Oreille.

Watch Bald Eagles and Ospreys hunt daily, and marvel in the ever-changing water parade of local and migratory coots, ducks, geese, and loons. Replace screen time with lake time. Each day here nourishes your senses and body. Start the day with a nature walk or comb the shoreline for a keepsake rock. Fish for rainbow trout or small mouth bass from the dock. Let the kids climb a tree and explore. Bike the rural, yet friendly neighborhood. Swim. Play. Nap. Read. Build sandcastles with the grandchildren on the private beach. Then pay homage to a sunset that frames the end of memory-laden day while sitting outside at the end of the day.

In summer, bring or rent a boat and moor it safely on a new dock and boat lift. You’re in an ideal place for water sports. Water ski, inner tube, wake board or surf the bays right here: Rainbow, Oden, or Kootenai Bay. Explore Warren and Pearl Islands or read about the ancient history of Memaloose Island (a sacred, Indian burial site). Take the boat to dinner (and lunch). Or take a kayak or paddle board out (both provided) and explore the shorelines at leisure.

When not outside, there’s plenty to enjoy inside. The large gourmet kitchen, with new Wolff cooktop & oven, is completely appointed to help you create fabulous meals. Multiple decks provide a variety of areas to eat outside, as well as a quiet place to enjoy a good book. Downstairs you’ll find a beautiful billiards table and game room, separated by a stone and glass fireplace. Just outside is the large hot tub! Movies, TV and Xbox are available in the upstairs Family and Entertainment room.

When “being connected” to the world is necessary, **NEW** high speed WiFi is NOW available in the home and a large built-in office is located upstairs for work needs. Kootenai Bay Lodge celebrates the four seasons of Sandpoint. Schweitzer Mountain is an easy 15 mile drive away and the home is also close to the charming town of Sandpoint. Scenic drives and hiking trailheads are all within a few miles of this fabulous place. Make your next memories here at Kootenai Bay Lodge. Canoe, kayaks and several stand up paddle boards (SUPs) are included with your stay here. 

**NOTE:  Each year, on September 18th OR the 3rd Sunday in September (whichever is later), the Army Corps of Engineers begins dropping the water level of Lake Pend Oreille until ultimately reducing it by a total of 10-12 feet.  Around the 4th week in September ALL boat docks and boat lifts on the lake become inaccessible and unusable, as the water completely recedes back from the shoreline leaving just bare ground beneath the docks.  The agreement with the Army Corps of Engineers states the lake level must be restored to full pool level each year no later than July 4th, however, the last 10+ years the lake water has been at full pool level around the 2nd or 3rd week in June.

Wonderful property. Weather was ideal entire week, small exception last few days. Hazy from nearby forest fires. We took advantage of boat lift, paddle boards, pool table and well equipped kitchen.

Wonderful house! The definition of understated elegance and luxury. It felt as if every piece of furniture and decor had been especially hand picked, adding personal touch and character to the space. The view and lake/dock was nothing short of amazing. Great choice for families/groups looking for a restful and rejuvenating holiday.

Fantastic property to entertain both adults and kids. Lots to do, and the home is well laid out. Fishing was excellent from the dock and we landed numerous smallmouth bass. Views and setting...extremely peaceful. Roughly 15 mins from restaurants etc, Would highly recommend this property!

I've rented luxury properties all over the US and Europe. This house was my favorite of all time. The setting on Lake Pend Oreille was perfect. The architecture of the house is amazing. And the furniture and furnishings -- often less than first rate in rentals -- were comfortable, often unique and obviously selected with care by the owner. Grandparents, kids and grandkids had a wonderful time. The management company was helpful, friendly and responsive without being intrusive. Our experience with this house could not have been better.
