Sunnyside Estate is the ideal family reunion home. Stay in this historic and charming former bed and breakfast estate -- on Lake Pend Oreille (Oden Bay) which includes 5 acres of land, 7+ bedrooms, a renovated kitchen with brand new commercial appliances, a private swimming area, dock, Sunstream boat lift and privacy.
Located just 7 minutes from downtown Sandpoint, the original home was built in 1897. The rich history and craftsmanship of the original cobblestone driveway, as well as wood floors and stairs have been preserved. A vintage Victorian look combined with mid century modern brings old and new together to an open, sun-filled living area. A separate glass encased dining room overlooks the acreage and waterfront -- or dine al fresco on the huge teak table.
Commercial kitchen appliances (newly installed May 2019) center a kitchen that is appointed with the best small and large appliances, sharp knives for the chef and an additional butlers pantry for food storgage and prep.
For any large group -- the key thing is to make sure you have enough beds, baths and room to enjoy time together, quiet time apart and great beds with linens for great rest. This home TRULY has it all!
The main floor bedrooms include two custom built 'bunk' rooms for families. One room has 4 built-in twins, the second has 4 built in-twins and one Queen bed -- sleeping 10 in beds on the main floor alone. Upstairs is a master bedroom with King bed in suite, a 4th bedroom with 2 Queens, and an office area with sofa bed.
A separate studio apartment is located near the back of the home and includes a King bed with luxury linens, small kitchen and full bathroom. Above the mud room area (located west of the butler pantry) are stairs that take you up to an enormous family room with pool table, entertainment area with large TV and another Queen bed in suite.
Outside all will enjoy the flat, large grassy yard that leads you to a private swimming inlet on Oden Bay of Lake Pend Oreille. Enjoy sunrises to sunsets as the kids run, play and explore. Bring your boat or rent one and safely moor it on the Sunstream boat lift. Oden Bay is one of the *best* bays for water sports -- as well as a gateway to all the incredible fishing the lake has to offer.
In winter, you're just 5 miles to Schweitzer Mountain Road and all the winter activities that Idaho's largest ski mountain has to offer. Make the most of your family and friend time by staying at Sunnyside Estate. Book now.
**Note: Each year, on September 18th OR the 3rd Sunday in September (whichever is later), the Army Corps of Engineers begins dropping the water level of Lake Pend Oreille until ultimately reducing it by a total of 10-12 feet. Around the 4th week in September ALL boat docks and boat lifts on the lake become inaccessible and unusable, as the water completely recedes back from the shoreline leaving just bare ground beneath the docks. The agreement with the Army Corps of Engineers states the lake level must be restored to full pool level each year no later than July 4th, however, the last 10+ years the lake water has been at full pool level around the 2nd or 3rd week in June.
