Description

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, a dedicated dock with new boat lift, fire pit, 2 kayaks, 4 paddle boards AND a brand new hot tub. 

***NEW! For THIS Winter at Schweitzer Mountain!  Four Transferrable Passes Available with your stay! *** 

Due to Covid-19, Schweitzer is limiting day pass purchases -- however Villa Z has purchased 4 Transferrable Passes for you.  Passes can be used during ANY open day at Schweitzer and are $95 per day plus tax.  Contact Daugherty Management after the booking process to secure your passes.  (Daugherty Management may have access to additional passes, but please ask.  Four are guaranteed for Villa Z guests for sure.)  Also - a new, state-of-the-art HEPA filtration system 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), with 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 a less than 30-minute 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.  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 (King, Queen, Queen, Queen, and Z Zone - 3 Queens, 3 XLs), the stunning new observatory, and 3 full bathrooms.   All beds and bathrooms fully appointed with luxury linens.  Laundry machines are available on both floors. 

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:  https://www.sandpointonline.com/rec/lakeguide/walks.html

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 this home as owners have serious & significant allergies.

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. Then...you 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 house...is 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!

Bucket list it twice because once is not enough . This home is beyond beautiful , stunning views and oh so comfortable. I have to say walking in the door I was blown away by the view and just gravitated outside, heaven, just heaven and lots of toys in heaven, boats plus a beach! I could of have camped outside . After being coaxed inside (promised a margarita). The interior is right out of a movie star magazine or set, voluminous ceilings, towering fireplace, immense gourmet kitchen . So luxurious, the living room could easily house 20 people yet it so cozy. 5 stars to the design team. The beds and linens were wonderful also. Cannot wait to return. - Jane Beyer

I had the extraordinary pleasure of spending time at Villa Z with separate sets of great friends and family twice in the last year, once in July and again in mid-February. I was beside myself thinking I couldn't make the February trip because of previous commitments, but at the last minute I was able to change some plans and in no time I was on the road between Seattle and Sandpoint. I had remembered that Villa Z was stocked with everything you could imagine, so all I needed was my clothing and a few personal items and I was off. Villa Z is only a five hour drive from Seattle and a simple and beautiful one at that. Once I was on I-90 E, getting to Villa Z was a matter of exiting the freeway in Idaho, making a left turn, and then another left turn and you are there! (Oh and by the way, if you need to get gas, do it in Idaho! It's so cheap!) When I arrived at Villa Z, it was snowing lightly. Villa Z was lit up spectacularly and looked stunning. I remember thinking....do I get really get to stay at this place again? Thanks to the covered driveway and porch, I didn't even have to walk in in the snow. When I walked in to Villa Z to greet my friends who had arrived the day prior, they were relaxing after dinner amidst an expansive majestic view. Every room in Villa Z is exceptional, but the great room living area, with the massive cozy chairs, surrounding bar, entertainment, pool table, and proximity to the professional kitchen is THE place to spend time with each other. I personally didn't need any activities during my summer or winter stay outside of what Villa Z offered turnkey. Being at Villa Z is like being on luxury cruise ship where you have to make choices- do I want to leave this place for a fun excursion, or do I just want to stay here and have a perfect time with everything here already available to me? Another great thing about this place is that it is shockingly affordable off-season, and worth every penny peak season. I'm hoping to arrange another trip with some friends very soon. Thank you, Villa Z!

Just recently spent an extended weekend at Villa Z in Sandpoint, ID and let me tell you, this is the winter destination you have been looking for. The house is beautiful and completely modern with a perfect lakeshore location. There is room for your large family or group and it is definitely set up for your kids with a perfectly designed fun zone. The kitchen is set up to make ANY type of meal you can think of and the owners have pretty much thought of everything you could need for your winter or summer vacation. The location of Villa Z is also a major plus, first off you are RIGHT on the lake, minutes from downtown Sandpoint and all it has to offer, and a short drive to Schweitzer Ski Resort and the Pend Oreille river. I cant recommend this place enough, and if you want the perfect winter destination you should book now!!! -Sean S.

We had the most magical weekend in Sandpoint Idaho! We had 4 families wanting to go on a skiing trip to Schweitzer Mountain. In looking for accommodations for the group I came across some vacation rentals, the one that stood out was Villa Z. The pictures were amazing, right on the lake & just minutes from Schweitzer. Good price, room enough for all of us. Booked it. When we arrived, I couldn't believe it! Villa Z.....it was more like mansion! It was so beautiful & open with spectacular views. Overflowing with large comfy sitting areas, huge dining table, great kitchen. We could all hang out together or find a quiet, cozy spot to relax. All the bedrooms were amazing. There was even a huge bunk room (The Z Zone) that was perfect for the six young kids in our group. They thought they had their own kids only fort. Very nice, very cozy. It was just perfect!! Only minutes to Schweitzer Mountain or quaint downtown Sandpoint. Let's just say I got way more than expected. Had we known it was so great we would have stayed a week rather than a weekend. And what a beautiful mountain & ski resort!! Snow, blue skies & some great pizza! Hopefully we can do it again!

The bunkroom was perfect for the kiddos, they had a blast in there and we were able to enjoy some adult time in the main living area. The owner of this home has done some major renovations and the home is stunning. The location is amazing as well. The views of the lake and snow-covered mountains is magical. It is wonderful, peaceful, and relaxing environment. It is also an easy drive to the mountain, we spent 2 full filled days at Schweitzer teaching the kids to ski.

We just can't thank you all enough for your help arranging this stay and for offering this amazing property for rent! From the moment we pulled into the driveway to the moment we left, we enjoyed every minute of our stay here. The location was so close to town, yet felt secluded and private. The lake views were outstanding and were the only thing that could take our eyes off of the beautiful home itself. We enjoyed many of the amenities that were offered, like the pool table, hot tub, fireplaces, and sandy beach. The master suite was so luxurious. Waking up to the lake view with the fireplace roaring was so nice, and the heated floor in the spacious and well lit bathroom was wonderful. The hot tub with the wonderful lake view was an amazing treat in the cool fall air each night! From our first glimpse as we drove in, we were so excited to see the home was just as beautiful and luxurious as it appeared in the pictures. Then we started finding many little surprises that exceeded our expectations - board games, books, the TV entertainment system, etc. I feel like even if we had forgotten something we needed, it probably would have been supplied! The property and home were both very clean. And the sandy beach was so nice and clean; I imagine it is fun to walk barefoot in the warmer months! The amenities are really what make this property exceed expectations. There are books and board games and fireplaces to enjoy them by. The bar area was so nice, with the fresh clean ice in the ice machine and the conversation cards to enjoy in front of the large view windows. I wish we had some warmer weather during our stay, because being able to use the paddleboards or even just fish from the dock or sandy beach would be so enjoyable. Seeing all the water activity gear they had available was impressive. The oversized refrigerator and freezer are enviable! We came for a relaxing anniversary getaway, and this property helped us accomplish that. With so much to offer in this home, we were constantly finding something new to enjoy and it left us wanting more, which is always a good sign! Everyone we worked with was so friendly and helpful. Thank you so much for all your help arranging our stay and your support during our stay!

This house is absolutely beautiful. It is the perfect place to take a large group of people too.

The hot tub was a perfect place to enjoy the view. We had an osprey as a guest on the property, which was so cool.
