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

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

Only time size matters is when it comes to view! : 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!

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 home, 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.

A Little Bit of Heaven at Garden of Eigen deserves 5 Stars and more (by Dave and Gail)
What an incredible find - we spent 3 wonderful days and could have stayed forever! Amazing setting, beautifully appointed, fully stocked with everything you need. We found it hard to leave everyday, but we forced ourselves to get out and explore the area, always eager to return. It is so peaceful, and the view is to die for, from sunrise to sunset and beyond. We so enjoyed the hot tub on the deck, the (2) fireplaces inside, and the firepit table on the deck, sipping beer from the local Laughing Dog Brewery. Upon arrival Jeanelle gave me a virtual tour on the phone, explaining and pointing out all details of the place. We feel so lucky to have found this place and we can't wait to return!!!
Owner's Response: Thank you for your gracious remarks. It made our tails wag with joy! We look forward to your return.

Far from the Maddening Crowd (by A guest from Olympia, WA)
We spent four days at this lovely home and it was a refreshing escape for us. The photos don't do justice to the views of the lake, which are stunning. We enjoyed lying in bed each morning listening to the birds and watching the light gradually bring the beauty of Lake Pend 'Oreille into focus. We appreciated the privacy, comfort, beautiful location, and not having to deal with swarms of people. This is better than any Four Seasons Hotel anywhere! The home has every amenity. A fully equipped kitchen (and pantry!), a huge deck and new hot tub, separate baths for two, very comfortable bed and furnishings. Jeanelle and Jack are wonderfully generous owners. They left us fresh flowers, chocolates, a bottle of red wine and farm fresh eggs. But, the nicest benefit was how they graciously welcomed our two Westies (who had a wonderful time sunning themselves on the huge deck and chasing chipmunks in the fenced yard!) Jeanelle also left great tips on where to eat and things to do. We wish we could have stayed twice as long--which says everything. We can't wait to return!
Owner's Response: Thank you for your gracious remarks. It made our tails wag with joy! We look forward to your return.

Absolutely Perfect! (by TIM W.)
My wife and I are lucky enough to travel a lot for leisure, but when we walked into this beautiful getaway we felt like we were home. The owners meticulously cover every detail of luxury and comfort. The views from the bedroom and the back deck are impossible to accurately describe. We spent all of our time on the deck and in that wonderful hot tub. This place is truly a slice of Idaho heaven! Thanks for a great experience, Jeanelle. Tim & Ashleigh
Owner's Response: Thank you Melody for your gracious review and for mentioning the trains. We don't want there to be any surprises - except for the good ones! So glad you discovered the dog friendly areas. Being able to have our fur children accompany us on a vacation is a necessity for some of us. Here's looking forward to seeing you all next year. Jnell and Jack

Awesome! (by Brenda F.)
Most relaxing vacation ever! The second we walked through the door we were awestruck. Fresh flowers, soft music, fresh eggs, chocolates, beer and frosted mugs.The views are to die for! We spent hours on the deck just looking at the landscape. Watching the shadows, the ripples on the water, the sunsets, the shooting stars. We just couldn't get enough. The home is immaculate, beautifully decorated and the bed is super comfortable and perfectly placed. This is the most peaceful, restorative, romantic getaway. So many special touches. We felt like royalty. Jeanelle and Jack have truly built a treasure that they are so willing to share. We loved all of the things we were encouraged to take advantage of, instead of all the things we weren't allowed to do as we have noticed at other properties. We were so sad to leave. The photos, description, and every review are spot on! We loved our stay and plan to return!

Fantastic! (by James D.)
This was our second stay at this wonderful home. Once again we were delighted with the special qualities of this great retreat. The place is spacious, scenic, comfortable, and romantic! When we walked in the nice background music and the bottle of wine make us feel special and privileged. The kitchen is well stocked and made our stay even more comfortable. We just love the his and hers bathrooms. Thanks for the special touches and all of your hard work! Jim & Lynda
Owner's Response: And we love having you! So glad you've made the Lover's Getaway your retreat.

Magical !!! (by charmane c.)
First of all I want to say that the owners of the property are the most amazing and wonderful hosts ever. Fresh flowers welcomed us upon arrival as well as chocolate treats ! The owners gave us info on where to go in nearby Hope for a fab meal and also for an incredible hike near the property. The kitchen was stocked with so many herbs and spices - as well as all the cookware you need to prepare a gourmet meal. The entire home is immaculate. And the views are absolutely drop dead gorgeous ! We stayed out on the deck for hours each night staring at the stars !!! We saw dozens of shooting stars !!! The light and love that went into building this property is palatable, you will feel so joyful spending time in this incredible retreat. We saw eagles, ospreys, hummingbirds, robins, all kinds of other birds, and dragonflies. Such an amazing retreat ! We had an extraordinary time and look forward to coming back for years to come. Could not recommend this extraordinary place more highly !
Owner's Response: We look forward to yours and Maggie's return! Jnell, Jack and Ginny

Our Own Private Idaho (by Lowen83)
I really don't know how to put into words the lovely experience we had staying here. What a wonderfully beautiful Home!!!!! And that's just how it felt to us, we felt we were in our own home. The owners went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed, and that everything was meeting our expectations. We arrived to fresh cut flowers and fresh "that day" eggs in the fridge, a yummy bottle of red wine, and an incredible 180 degree unobstructed view of the Lake. We were really in need of a getaway from everything and this turned out to be the perfect place. It is incredibly private, we felt we were the only people on the planet at times. The deck is huge with a cozy hot tub and a propane fire pit to take the chill off. Floor to ceiling windows provide stunning sunsets, and purifying morning views from bed! We watched eagles and ospreys soar and fish, songbirds provide a natural symphony and even three wild turkeys came to visit. Best of all was Jeanelle welcomed our little dog with open arms, a basket full of treats, and marrow bones in the freezer! Jeanelle also advised that they now had reliable Wi-Fi, and it did work fine for us, though we made an effort to not use it or the TV or our cell phones. There are trains, and they do blow their horn, and sometimes at night. However we would just lift our heads and see that extraordinary view from the bed and say "paradise", and go back to sleep. We felt so refreshed, so cleansed, so ready to take on the world again, we are already trying to make time to come back to our own private Idaho. Thanks you so much Jack & Jeanelle for sharing your little corner of paradise with us, for making us feel so welcome, and showing your love to Maggie! We WILL be back!
Owner's Response: We look forward to yours and Maggie's return! Jnell, Jack and Ginny

Feeling Hope! (by Enzee)
This home is not a house but rather an experience. The hosts are excited to have you there. Some welcoming items included freshly cut flowers, personal tour, bone marrow treats for our fur kids, fresh eggs, and chilled "Laughing Dog Beer". The views are breath taking and the home is so welcoming that we found it hard to leave, even for a day's outing. It truly is the nicest VRBO home we have stayed in. It's beautiful but also practical. The yard is contained and so our pups could be out without direct supervision. So much detail has been put into this facility that is well thought out ... We did not want for anything. We have excitedly told our friends and have encouraged them to check it out. It is our hope to return to Hope!
Owner's Response: Oh Enzee, you two were the best guests! Thank you for your gracious comments. We look forward to seeing you back soon. Marrow bones await!

Absolutely Perfect Getaway (by Paul C.)
What a wonderful house with spectacular views! My wife and I spent our anniversary at the Lover's Getaway and it could not have been better. Jnell and Jack have paid attention to every detail in this beautiful house. The minute we walked in the door, we felt at home. Ginny met us at the house to show us around. She was very welcoming and made sure we were comfortable for our weekend away. The kitchen was stocked with every pot, pan and utensil we needed, which was perfect for preparing romantic meals every night. The back of the house has wonderful views from every angle and is built with endless windows so you don't miss any second of the sunsets and sunrises. We were slightly concerned about privacy with such an "open" concept but it wasn't an issue at all! It is completely private and we felt like we were tucked away in paradise all by ourselves. We especially enjoyed the deck area. We lit the fire table and ate supper outside watching the sunsets over the pristine lake. We spent every night in the hot tub and saw the most incredible sky full of stars. The view from the bed is incredible, too. It was so relaxing to wake up with the sun and start our day with that scenery! We could not have asked for a better place to spend our anniversary! When we did venture out (to downtown Sandpoint or to Schweitzer Mtn), we were anxious to return and enjoy the house some more. We left feeling relaxed and renewed but were also so sad to leave. We definitely will return to this property! You won't regret spending time at this very special place!
Owner's Response: Thank you, dear ones, for your gracious review. We're so glad you were able to experience a relaxing vacation before going off to a hard working season. We look forward to having our Montana neighbors return. Jnell and Jack
