Villa Z at Sandpoint is THE place to stay for your next family reunion, retreat or larger group.  This exceptional waterfront estate unites grand, contemporary architecture with equally stunning furnishings and art, into a 8,500 sq. ft. home on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille.  Located just 3 miles from downtown Sandpoint, Villa Z resides on nearly 3 acres of cedar and pine trees and includes:  manicured grounds, 156 feet of flat waterfront, a private sandy beach, dedicated dock with boat lift, fire pit, paddle boards, kayaks AND a hot tub.  Breathe easy with the new state-of-the-art HEPA filtration system that has been installed to remove bacteria and viruses from the air throughout the home, for added protection.

This luxuriously renovated home has 7 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, a gourmet kitchen, sunken bar, pool table, including a NEW  'Z Zone' (a massive bunk & entertainment room with 3 Queens, 3 XL bunks - all with cubbies & charging ports for those tech savvy teens), and a 75” HD Smart TV — creating a zone that families, friends, kids/cousins/grandkids will all love!

Villa Z is just 17 miles from Schweitzer Mountain (the largest ski mountain in Idaho), and is less than 30 minutes drive to Silverwood Amusement & Water Park.  Located on 43 mile-long Lake Pend Oreille and being minutes from downtown Sandpoint, makes this location ideal for family reunions, luxury lake vacations, “milestone” birthdays, a special anniversary, corporate retreats, and winter skiing. 

Enjoy quiet conversations around the spectacular wave wall fireplace in the living room or watch your favorite sport or movie on a 65" TV that 'raises' out of a low profile entertainment cabinet. Celebrate that special birthday or anniversary in the gorgeous dining room. A large sunken bar replete with pony keg tap and ice machine — is perfect for evening cocktails and entertaining and the Brunswick billiards table leads to an 8 ball challenge. 

Great homes have great kitchens and Villa Z is no exception. This Epicurean kitchen will delight  the serious cook with its 4 foot long Viking range, double ovens, and warming drawers. Plentiful and gorgeous, quartz and granite counter tops provide ample work space for the sous chef and wannabes. Custom cabinetry, wood floors, full size refrigerator with full size freezer, bake ware and kitchen staples complete this incredible kitchen. An enormous “butler’s pantry”, behind the main kitchen, provides a separate area for the clean-up crew.

An expansive master suite with sitting area is located on the main floor and provides room for families with small children (crib, toddler bed and sleeper sofa).  A smaller sleeping room with Queen-sized Murphy bed, plus a private office and a "gear room" with commercial-grade boot/gear dryer, complete the first floor layout.  Take the sweeping spiral staircase up to reach 5 additional bedrooms (Midaz King, Zen Queen, Azure Queen, Gaze Queen, and Z Zone - 3 Queens, 3 Twin XLs), the stunning new observatory, and 3 full bathrooms.   All beds and bathrooms are fully appointed with luxury linens. 

Summers in Sandpoint finds everyone outside. In addition to the sprawling patio and outdoor kitchen, a variety of stylish seating, tables and chairs, plus a 100' long sandy beach with fire pit at the water's edge (*yes, we even provide the wood*) awaits you. The large flat lawn is perfect for volleyball, badminton or croquet.  Feeling the need to really explore our incredible area, where there are no paved walkways?  Check out the many hiking trails North Idaho has to offer, from easy jaunts to full-on climbs that take most of the day.  Here is a fantastic online guide to the most popular trailheads, with short descriptions about each one:

Villa Z is unique in size, design, privacy and amenities. However it is not an event venue, so please no wedding or large reception requests. In addition, absolutely **no pets** at the owners have serious & significant allergies.  CCTV exterior security cameras are in place.

**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.

Driving up to this home was beyond expectations. This home is beautiful, it was perfect for our family reunion. The bedrooms are spacious, comfortable and beautiful. We are a family that loves to cook, the kitchen was amazing, well stocked. The living areas were perfect for our large family to gather as a group. The views are stunning. Guest service was attentive and responded quickly. Would love to make this an annual destination for our family events.

We recently had a large group of family, friends, and kids stay at VillaZ and we had an incredible time! The house is beautiful and extremely spacious, even though we had around 20 guests. The grounds are lovely and we even had some luck catching fish off the dock. The kids and grownups loved paddleboarding and kayaking. The mountain backdrop against the lake was like staring at a postcard. The management company was communicative and accommodating. I would love to stay at this beautiful home again anytime.

We couldnt have chosen a more beautiful or better property for our family vacation. We were a group of 15, ranging in age from 14-82. The house was perfect - immaculately clean, well-planned in the layout, and the best equipped property we have ever rented! Everything was there in abundance from wine glasses, silverware, cooking utensils and tons of necessities to get us started in the beautiful kitchen. The staff were polite, friendly and very responsive to every inquiry. They brought extra life jackets within an hour of our request, came to fix a blown fuse right away - great customer service. We would definitely return!

Villa Z Does Not Disappoint!! We recently stayed at Villa Z during our Texas Spring Break. We would normally go skiing in Colorado, but this year called for something different! We had never traveled to Idaho before, and when researching, Schweitzer Mountain kept popping up as a top place for families to ski. With two families traveling together - 5 pre-teen/teenage boys between us - we needed a place that was big enough to give the kids and adults their own space aprs ski! Villa Z delivers on that and beyond! This incredible house is like no other rental house we have ever stayed in before. How amazing is this house? Let me count the ways for you! 1. It sits right on the lake with huge windows that look out onto the lake and the mountains beyond. The ever-changing view throughout the day will keep you mesmerized. We loved seeing the wildlife out on the water, from ducks and geese, to the hawks circling above, diving down to catch some fish. I was missing my daily morning coffee view the minute we left! 2. Bedrooms, bedrooms, and more bedrooms!! As we walked through the house, we could not believe the number of bedrooms that are in this house. We could have easily fit in another 2 families! And they even have a baby crib available for those who might be traveling with little ones. 3. The Bunk Room! While the adults took refuge in the main living area each night (by the incredible fireplace) the boys all hung out in the amazing bunk room upstairs. There are 6 bunks total, but the bunks on the bottoms are queen-sized beds, so you can fit lots of kids (or adults) in here! This space also has its own full bath and its own TV setup for entertainment. Our group of boys had brought their Nintendo Switch, which they easily hooked up to the TV for some nighttime gaming. Bonus that the room was far enough away that the adults didn't have to hear all of the shouting and squealing from the boys when they were playing. Ha! 4. The hot tub on the balcony, overlooking the lake, was the perfect spot to unwind and relax after a long day on the slopes. 5. The kitchen is fit for a professional chef! And it was by far the most well-stocked kitchen of any place we have stayed in before. There are multiple coffee makers available, from Keurig to the conventional, huge cooking range, huge fridge, separate prep kitchen with sink, and double dishwashers, which all came in handy since we chose to cook a few of our evening meals at the house, rather than go out. 6. The master bedroom, in which we stayed, was incredible, with windows looking out onto the lake and a gas fireplace. The master closet is huge, with plenty of drawers and hanging space to unpack and stay awhile. The spacious master bath is beautiful, with a jetted tub, shower, walk-in shower (awesome water pressure), tons of counter space, and most importantly, heated floors! Given that it was cold when we went, that was a huge plus for us! I hate having cold feet. Ha! 7. Heated boot dryer!! The boot dryer was such a nice bonus! It is situated inside the mud room/laundry room downstairs, right off of the garage entry. There are lots of cubbies for storing shoes and gear, and the boot dryer was big enough to dry ALL our boots at the same time, including space left over for gloves that had gotten wet during the day. 8. The management company, Daugherty Management, is top notch. Their emails and text notifications with pertinent information for our arrival/departure was timely. They were readily available to answer any questions we had, AND they helped us through a small crisis when we lost one of the ski passes that belong to the owner of the house. Luckily, we were able to get it replaced and the management company owner happened to be going to Schweitzer to ski, so she picked up the replacement while there. Additionally, we had asked about whether a crock pot was available at the house, since one of the meals we had planned required one. Finding out that there was not one (quite possibly the only thing that was lacking in the kitchen), a representative from the management company personally delivered a brand-new crock pot to the door on a Sunday afternoon! Talk about service!! 9. Everything in the house is immaculate and well-appointed. It feels luxurious, but not overdone. Even though it is huge, is still feels very intimate and inviting. If you have read this entire review, and you havent already decided to book a stay here what is wrong with you?? LOL! But seriously, it was the perfect ski vacation stay for us. We are now forever spoiled and wont be able to stay anywhere else without wishing we were here! We cannot wait to come back and experience Villa Z during the summer!

If you're looking for the ultimate vacation house to exceed your expectations, look no further. Close to town, close to fun! There's tons to do in Sagle, ID. Snowmobiling, Skiing/Boarding at Schweitzer, Snowshoeing - it's a winter playground! Amenities: One phrase: "Attention to detail." The house has everything needed to make one comfortable. Hot tub overlooking the lake to rejuvenate sore legs from skiing. Luxurious beds to sleep in. Comfortable sitting areas and chairs to relax and socialize. A covered parking area to unload your vehicle without getting snowed/rained on. Bunkhouse for the kids and private rooms for the adults. Bright, colorful, modern design. Phone/USB charging ports by the beds. Every small detail has been considered. Wet boots after a day of skiing? No problem. The mudroom features boot dryers for ~20 pairs of boots, and cubbies for your skiing gear. Ski clothes are a bit wet from the snow? There's 4 separate washer/dryer sets in the house such that you can have fresh clothes each day. Don't feel like playing out side? There's a pool table, games and several TV's in the house. Views: The majority of rooms in the house have a commanding, panoramic view of the lake, and in the distance, the ski hill. As mentioned before, you can enjoy the cool breeze off the lake while sitting warm in the hot tub amongst the snowy mountains surrounding the lake. Style: As soon as you arrive, you can tell this isn't just your average rental. Modern styling on the outside is perfectly matched inside with modern fixtures, stainless steel appliances, and trendy furniture, and wide-open spaces. The house has been remodeled into a bright inviting space. Dining: Each day on vacation started with a few of my favorite things: coffee, and a panoramic view of the mountain and lake. The kitchen is well organized and had anything needed to make a huge breakfast - or dinner for that matter. Plenty of dishwashers make cleanup a breeze, and there are enough dishes for the largest of groups. A table for 12+ ensures plenty of banter and reliving the best moments of the day over dinner. Overall, this place is perfect for your ski club, families or friends looking to get together for an unforgettable trip both outside in the snow, and back at the castle! -Evan

Villa -Z is for ME! ... And it should be for thee! Well... what can be said about this winter retreat beautifully set in the Idaho mountains and on a lake?? MUCH! If you are looking for tranquility and comfort while indoors, and a winter playground outdoors, look no further and book it quickly! The "WOW factor" is undeniable as you proceed up the driveway and park. walk in and say WOW 10 more times. Your eye is instantly drawn through the house to see the lake and mountains in full view and you take a deep breath, and feel like you are now home to relax. Then, you start looking around in the house and the fun keeps growing as you explore. It is richly appointed throughout, but, it still feels "homey." The owners did a wonderful job striking that balance as some homes of this magnitude may feel more like a museum, but this a home... and you will feel this during your stay as you settle in. The property managers are accessible, even to the tiniest detail of fixing a switch on a lamp during our stay. That is amazing attention to detail in a rental, and makes the renters know someone is there, close by, if they need anything. Though this was not a trip with children, the Z-Zone space upstairs is incredible for kids and adults alike. Such a cool space! Doors can shut it off so the kids can make all the noise they want and the adults won't be bothered in the least. Loved the pool table, right where it should be, to encourage play while not separating the players from the group comradery and laughs! No one had issues with any WIFI or tech! We not only relaxed in the house, most of us did our jobs during parts of the morning/evening and found spaces in the house very conducive for quiet, productive work. The home is set up beautifully for winter sports enthusiasts! Skiers will love the heated garage to hang equipment and the ski-room/ mudroom is full of storage, hooks and cubbies...and the boot/glove dryer is absolutely state of the art and handled 9 of us no problem! We had avid cooks and restaurant people in our group and they could not rave more about the kitchen setup / appliances and drawers full of every item you may need. The huge glass table for meals was so comfy for eating and discussion. Plenty of plastic "glass-ware" is available, smartly, for the hot tub and patio areas. Not only is the hot tub comfortable for many....but what a VIEW of the lake and mountains from an elevated patio!! Sit back and soak away any stress or sore muscles! As an avid traveller to ski vacations / resorts throughout the US and Canada over the last 15 years, and having rented beautiful places in each location, I would take this location, this home and these mountains, hands down. Specifically if you are looking to get in some serious vertical skiing mileage, Schweitzer Mountain ( located an easy and pretty 20 mile drive from home) is a bargain compared to big resorts, not only in lift prices, but convenience, and just plain bang for your buck. In town, we zipped around easily to find all we needed for food and fun. We found two local bars downtown easy to get to for Apres-Ski, free street parking and smiling, nice Idaho locals with whom to chat. Some in our group found world class snowmobile trails close by and thoroughly enjoyed their day in the mountains. None of us snow-shoed, but we could have! What I am saying is that if you need a break from being lock-downed, or any stress, then set yourself free up at Villa -Z!! Settle in, then get out and play, and you will see that bigger named resorts, well, are just overrated. This truly is a destination get-away, a true gem. Come see yourself!

Our five night stay at Villa Z in Sagle, Idaho was nothing short of spectacular. The quick access to Schweitzer Mountain and other such outdoor activities made this an ideal location for our group of 8. The layout of the Villa itself I felt was very well thought out with a large enough mud room to neatly stow, heat and dry equipment for easy load up and departure to the slopes that can be seen from the hot tub. I found the rooms to be very comfortable and spacious as well, with the only issue in which one to choose for I arrived early! There is plenty of space to lounge around and get away if need be. The space is laid out great for gathering as well, with a very open concept that worked well with our group. My favorite feature at this lakeside getaway after the views has got to be the kitchen. Traveling often between sailing and snow sports with groups of 8-12, cooking fantastic many course meals is always priority after location. We found the kitchen to be an absolute joy to prepare, cook & clean easily. Everything was where it NEEDED to be, easy to locate and very functional! Thank You and we will be back!
