Our meeting was a gift from God. There's no other way to explain how we met. Both avid outdoorspeople and reclusives, we created a love nest that reflects our tastes: private, surrounded by nature, user/eco friendly, and a place that is both inspiring and healing. Our intention is to pass on the blessings that this home has given so generously to us.

Why This Location: This is a Soul House. Words don't do this home justice. It is experienced by the heart. Situated on a cliff, the view let's you experience a cloud's ledge perspective. Nearly all rooms look out on the view. You are totally private, whether in the garden area, the deck or inside.

1 Bedroom, 2 baths, sleeps 2

If you are looking for a romantic lover's getaway/spiritual retreat with total privacy, and an inspirational and renewing escape look no further. This retreat is about experiencing a love affair, whether with Source, significant other or self. Rest, renew and reflect in the expanse of nature. This intimate cliffside home is built on mountainside rock overlooking Creation's back yard. View nothing but water, mountains and the animals that make it their home.

When it comes to views size matters! The views are jaw dropping. Nature envelopes you. Watch eagles and osprey compete for food as you lounge in the hot tub or deck. Hear the cry of a loon. Watch sunsets from the comfort of the outdoor fire pit on an infinity deck that gives you a birds eye view of this nature retreat. Wake up and go to sleep to the most inspirational setting you could wish for. While there are a host of activities and attractions nearby you may never want to leave the premises for after doing nothing all day you may want to rest afterwards!

This is an owner's private home, not a rental. This artistic and eco friendly home has all of the amenities with which to pamper yourself. Enjoy the hot tub just steps off the master suite, separate bathrooms, TV and a fully stocked gourmet kitchen. A great room with fireplace adjoins the kitchen and a spacious master suite with fireplace all overlook the water and mountains providing an intimate experience with nature. This home was built with love, crafted by an artist/designer and inspired by Spirit.
This isn't a rental, this is an experience.

Near Nature near perfect: Forest Service and mountains are what's behind this home and water and mountains are in front. Minutes from your door you can hike, mountain bike, kayak, boat, and swim. There are two places to moor your boat and a place to put in directly below the house. Spend days exploring and enjoying the Best small town in the US per Rand McNaley. Visit Schweitzer Mtn Ski Resort, Silverwood Water Park or take a road trip and explore the scenic highways that take you to Montana and back. There's no lack of recreational activity outside your door though frankly once you are here you may not wish to leave the premises.

Peaceful and Relaxing! (by Janis or Chuck W.)
We stayed here six nights Oct 2016. It has the most amazing views of the lake and mountains. The bed is so comfy you won't wanna get out of it! The hot tub is to die for! Definitely didn't want to leave! Just amazing!
Owner's Response: What kind words! Indeed, this is not a rental but a private love nest that we just couldn't keep to ourselves. It deserves to be used and shared by all those seeking a soul connection, be it with your significant other or Source. We look forward to having you back!

Honeymoon to Remember (by Teresa S.)
We were given a stay at the Lover's Getaway as a wedding present. We were exhausted from a year of wedding plans. When we arrived and saw this beautiful retreat and the breathtaking view, we knew it would be the perfect place for us to relax and spend our first post wedding week together. The owners treated us like royalty. We'll remember our time there for ever....pure bliss We so hope we can return someday. Justin and Beth

Beautiful place to spend a romatic week together (by justin s.)
What a beautiful place to spend our honeymoon! The only thing better then the amazing view from the deck is the same amazing when waking up in the morning in that extremely comfy bed. Everything about the house was great! wonderfully furnished and within a couple hours of getting there we felt like we had lived there for years. Its close to Sandpoint, Idaho for good food and shopping and close to a number of great trails to hike. I dont see anything getting in the way of us coming back sometime in the future. Thank you so much Jeanelle and Jack for having us! Oh, one more thing. My wife wants to meet your donkeys next time. Hopefully we can work something out :)

What can be said that hasn’t already been written in a review for this amazing getaway? It truly has everything that’s been raved about and so much more! My husband and I have enjoyed 7 fabulous stays at the Lover’s Getaway starting in 2010. We’ve celebrated our engagement, our honeymoon, and life in general here. Jack and Janelle have so perfectly made this a place of physical, mental, and spiritual refreshment. We cannot thank them enough for all the time and effort they’ve put in to every detail! They have a gift, and what a blessing that they have chosen to share it. The area has something for everyone…hiking, skiing, shopping, the lake, great restaurants, community events. We usually choose to just stay in once we’ve arrived and relax in the peace of being away from it all. We ALWAYS wish we could stay longer, but we come home inspired and renewed every time. Can’t wait for our next opportunity to enjoy The Garden of Eagen!

Absolutely Amazing!!! (by Abby H.)
Wow!! This place was such a hidden gem! The minute you pull in the driveway & see the grapevines covering the fence (which by the way were delicious ;-) then walk through the adorable Garden of Eagen, THEN open up the front door to reveal the most beautiful view of I've ever seen!! Simply breathtaking! Everything you need is available in this rental. Jeanelle did such a wonderful job making everything convenient. When we would venture out during the day to hike, etc, we honestly could not wait to get back to the house so that we could sit in front of the fire pit with a glass of wine & just enjoy the view. We only stayed 3 nights but take my word for it when I say STAY LONGER!! Definitely will be going back!! :)

Beautiful, Dog Friendly Property! (by Valerie V.)
We had a fantastic time at this beautiful home! The large deck was perfect time for lounging....especially in the mornings, evenings, and for star gazing. The hike out the back door was a great amenity, and there was easy access to the lake just across the road. Loved the fully stocked kitchen with everything you could possibly need for cooking, and the fenced backyard was fabulous for our dog! Sandpoint was a short, easy drive. We felt right at home. If we venture back to the area, we will definitely stay here again!
Owner's Response: Thank you for your gracious remarks. It made our tails wag with joy! We look forward to your return.

A little piece of Heaven (by Danita Y.)
From the moment I arrived, I knew this was exactly what I was looking for...a relaxing, peaceful and refreshing vacation. J'nelle and Jack, thank you for making your home so comfortable and surrounding the beauty of nature thru out the home. The pictures here don't even come close to how beautiful every view from this home is or how warm and inviting the inside of the home is. Some highlights for me were watching the sunsets from the deck and waking up and seeing the lake in a panaromic view at my feet. Waking up with a temp of 55 degrees and taking the chill off with the fireplace. Watching the ofsprey dive for fish was very interesting and I loved watching the humingbirds enjoy all the flowers. My dog even enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching and hearing all the sights and sounds. :) After my daughter's wedding this was a great welcome retreat that refreshed my soul. I'm so looking forward to my next visit. Thank you again for your very warm hospitality! The Iowa travelers.

Beautiful, Charming and Comfortable Place (by Kitaya T.)
J'nelle and Jack make their property so welcoming. Everything shown in the pictures are accurate. It's that beautiful! The house has everything for your comfort even things that you wouldn't think of like sleeping masks and earplugs :) Upon arrival, J'nelle would gave us a walk through (over the phone) so that we got familiar with the house. All in all, we enjoyed the property to the fullest and that including our two dogs, Suki and Loebas. Everyday after the morning hike, they would relax at the deck or if it became too hot, they would be sleeping inside. We certainly would recommend Lover's Getaway to everyone.

Fabulous (by Charles M.)
We thought this would be a "nice" getaway, but discovered it was so much more than we imagined. From start to finish we were blissfully relaxed, calmly happy and noting the absence of adrenaline to race out and "do stuff". We were simply so content and happy that we just wanted to stay put. The property layout and amenities were well thought out, very clean and especially private. J'nell provided excellent intro to the house and we were confident of her availability should it be needed (of which it wasn't). We enjoyed it so much that we hope to return again and again and again. We can easily recommend and encourage friends and loved ones to visit.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your gracious remarks. It made our tails wag with joy! We look forward to your return.
