About the property

New 5 Bed/3 Bath Lodge With Awesome Lakefront Deck & Dock

The Lakeshore Lodge is a stunning, 5-bedroom retreat on the shores of beautiful Lake Pend O'Reille. Located at the end of a tranquil, traffic-free lane, Lakeshore Lodge offers blissful seclusion yet is only 3 minutes from the Dover Bay community and 7 minutes from Sandpoint, Idaho - voted America's 'Most Beautiful Small Town' by USA Today and Rand McNally.

Lakeshore Lodge is all North Idaho - big beams, big trees, big views - but step inside and you'll discover a retreat that is more chic than rustic: the wood and stainless steel kitchen; the ridiculously comfortable leather sofa set; the elegant tiled bathrooms; the spacious bedrooms (all but one facing the lake); the ample second-floor deck; the jacuzzi etc.

Just a few steps from the front door brings you to our private deck and L-shaped dock. You'll enjoy this special spot all year round: swimming, boating, paddling or just admiring the glorious views across the lake with a glass of wine in hand.

The expansive backyard is big enough for a family soccer match and includes a large jungle gym for the little ones. The back deck is perfect for barbecuing and has a large jacuzzi for relaxing tired muscles after a long day skiing at Schweitzer or hiking the area's numerous trails.

The Lakeshore Lodge has five bedrooms: two on the ground floor and three (including the master) on the second floor. The standard bed set up is three queens, one twin and a double set of bunk beds (big enough for adults.) We've also got a high-quality queen blow-up bed for bigger groups. Two big families? Three couples? No problem.

It has three bathrooms: one downstairs (2 sinks, 1 shower, 1 toilet) and two upstairs (master en suite with 2 sinks + shared bathroom for the other two bedrooms.)

Other appliances / amenities of note: LCD TV with cable, DVD player, wine fridge (I can stock with bottles from my collection if you're interested), gas fireplace with hearth.

Another plus: my property manager is your next door neighbor, and my relatives are all over town. There will always be somebody who can help if you have any issues or need local guidance on where to go and what to see!

About Owner / Property Manager

Daddy Brixen grew up in Sandpoint and always dreamed of having a place on the lake. Mommy Brixen was born in Bangkok, moved to the USA with her family and later met Daddy at a Mexican restaurant in Hong Kong. Now Daddy and Mommy have got four boys (Tai, Logan, Drake & Kiva) who absolutely love the Lakeshore Lodge.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this lodge in 2012

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Dover Bay

The first time you walk out on that dock, you'll understand. It is very, very difficult to find such a private, quiet spot on the lake that is located so close to town. I know, because I spent the first half of my life exploring Lake Pend O'Reille and the mountains surrounding it.

What makes this lodge unique

The Lakeshore Lodge will be my legacy to my four sons and their families. And I hope it can become a part of your treasured family memories as well.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth time staying at Lakeshore Lodge. It's immaculately maintained and on a very quiet cul-de-sac with no partiers around. Awesome spot for a fabulous family vacation. We'll be back!

Completely exceeded my expectations

  • 5 of 5

My expectations were HIGH! I spent a lot of time researching the perfect spot to celebrate my parents 40th anniversary. I chose the lakeshore lodge because it was a family friendly, had great reviews and the house looked very well done in the pictures. Well, the pictures do not do it justice!!! This home is beautiful. I call it a home because that's what it feels like. You have everything you need. The neighbors are delightful (they put up with our LOUD Irish family of 8 adults and 5 kids who ranged in ages from 5-1)! The property manager lives at the end of the road (next door) and was extremely helpful and not imposing whatsoever. Not to mention that the lake/dock setup is PERFECT. They say this house isn't technically "lakefront" but it IS! Absolutely wonderful vacation and wonderfully managed. Also, be sure to check out the master bathroom shower with dual heads... it's amazing after a long day on lake fishing. It felt like a luxurious spa. Huge thanks to the owner Scott and property manager Bridgett for the vacation of a lifetime!

P.S. The fishing was great:)

Family Celebration

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here with our kids and grandkids. It was fabulous. The home is amazing - new, clean, wonderfully decorated, and very well stocked. Then there were the outdoor amenities; a large yard, playground, hot tub, and fabulous deck and dock at the waterfront. This all came at a very reasonable price. We absolutely loved this place.

Beautiful, Fun, Family Vacation !

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with our family. We loved everything about the house, the location, the docks, the outdoors, & the lake. Your house was perfect for our family. Everything you could need is included. We walked to the marina, paddle boarded (we brought 3), rented a boat one day, a wave runner another day, swam, fished, and relaxed with family. We love Sandpoint and Dover Bay. The manager Bridgett does a great job and even brought us flowers the first day. Can't wait to go back...

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your gracious review! Our quiet little corner of the lake is pretty special and the variety of outdoor activities available in the area, from SUPing to bicycling in the Dover Bay area are incredible. Sincerely, Scott Brixen Owner, Lakeshore Lodge
