Did we mention adventure? Due to the steep driveway, you will need a 4×4 or AWD in order to reach the lookout tower. You may park at the lower driveway and hike up to the home (2 minute walk) if it looks too daunting – This may also be required in the winter months depending on the snow conditions. We promise it is all worth it once you take in the views! Especially sitting in the two-person hot tub that overlooks the valley.
The city of Sandpoint is known for trains, so you’ll hear the train whistle from the valley below. You’ll be surprised how quickly you become accustomed to the sound but if you’re not used to it you can use the “white noise” player or earplugs in the bedroom to muffle the train whistles at night.
Unfortunately, this property was not designed for children. There is a tight spiral staircase inside the home and not a lot of room to play. We do allow pets. However, there will be an additional $75 pet fee and pets must be under the owner’s control at all times, due to other animals in the area. Due to the steep cliffs surrounding the home, bringing pets will be at the owner’s risk.
NO SMOKING of any kind on the premises.
No PARTIES: Parties are not allowed as this home is in a quiet community.
