Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, 1.5 bath, 1.5 story log home nestled in the woods and close to town

An incredible combination of being close to nature and close to downtown Sandpoint, Lake Pend O'reille, Schweitzer Resort and all the activities. From this private wooded sanctuary, it is an easy 4.5 mile drive along a residential road to the downtown shops, dining and City Beach.

Perfect 'cabin-in-the-woods' setting with 5 acres of beautiful mature trees, a trail to a pristine creek, and lots of wildlife. The expansive decks and covered porch are ideal for listening to the creek, barbecuing, soaking in the hot tub, enjoying campfires, or lounging in the sun. No other homes are visible from the yard, which enhances the feeling of privacy.

This cozy home has plenty of room for relaxing, dining and spending time together. The great room contains recliners, sofa, a glass-front wood stove, and a 6-seat dining table. There is another 6-seat table in the kitchen. There is a main floor bedroom with queen bed and attached bathroom and the loft holds two sleeping areas and a half bath. One upstairs bed area has a queen log bed and twin bed. The other bed area has a twin bed and a twin log bunkbed.

Whether you spend your day adventuring around the area, hiking, shopping, dining, boating, skiing, or simply relaxing and not going anywhere, this home offers a wonderful feeling of comfort and beauty.

Please note that as this is intended as a peaceful getaway, there is no television or internet at the cabin. There is cell phone service. During winter months, a four-wheel drive vehicle is highly recommended.

About Lisa Rosauer

We recently moved to Sandpoint after homesteading in far north Idaho near the Canadian border for 13 years. Both of us grew up in the Midwest but met and started our life together in Alaska. We have built two of our own log homes. We love this area and all it has to offer. We particularly enjoy hiking with our dogs, Telemark and cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and paddling. Jim builds log furniture (featured in the cabin) and plays the banjo and guitar. Lisa has done extensive backcountry travel in the region, loves to garden and hike with the dogs. This cabin was a vacation getaway for us for a while. We would come into town to ski or go out for dinner or music events, but still have a peaceful place to stay out in the woods. We really enjoy providing that experience for others.

Even Better Than We Remembered!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I visited the Turnipseed Cabin a second time for our annual marriage retreat. This cabin is perfectly cozy with the wood stove, clean and well-provisioned, and in the woods a few miles from town (which made our exciting moose encounter possible). We will definitely be back!

Perfect place for a family or group

Just hosted a work meeting in Sandpoint and rented this cabin for folks from out of town. Everyone loved staying there- especially the hot tub and wood stove! It's the perfect place for groups or families!

A Perfect Cabin Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better place to stay for our family ski vacation in Idaho. This cabin was charming and had everything we needed. Lisa the owner had the woodstove going for us when we arrived on a snowy night, the hot tub was ready, and she even left candles/flashlights for us in case the power went out in the storm. It was only about 30 minutes to Schweitzer, and there were plenty of stores nearby to get provisions. The cabin was warm and comfortable, with plenty of room for a family. We hope to be able to stay there again next year! Highly recommend!

Awesome Cabin

Thanks Lisa! We loved everything about the cabin, from the hot tub, the great kitchen, the cozy wood stove and the location (close to Schweitzer), and everything in between. Would highly recommend a stay at this lovely place.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at the Turnipseed Cabin and absolutely loved it...again. The cabin is perfect. Comfy and clean. We celebrated our 20th anniversary and appreciated the quietness. Every need was met or exceeded. Lisa gave us a great tip on where to snowshoe and how to get there. One of my favorite getaways.
