6 Guests

RVers with any size RV enjoy a vacation rental experience rather than a crowded park at this private, quiet site with full hookups, a fire pit and outdoor hot tub on a 10-plus acre waterfront estate on Lake Pend Oreille just minutes from the resort town of Sandpoint, Idaho. RVers enjoy stunning lake views and easy access to a public boat dock and a private beach. Bring your RV of any type or size, as this site will accommodate up to a motor coach with tip-outs and 50 amp service. The RV site's location is a private spot overlooking Lake Pend Oreille and just a couple minutes walk away from the water. Hookups are on-site with a frost-free hydrant serving up tasty well water! A beautiful outdoor hot tub under the stars seats five with a lounge. A unique outdoor shower with an on-demand propane water heater and portable toilet are available for those setups that aren't self-contained. The site has its own fire pit, and camp wood is provided. We have accommodations for horses too. The property includes a house and two bell tents that allow for the possibility of group retreats. Hawkins Point is the farthest point on the Sunnyside Peninsula, named for the fact that it faces south; it's a gateway to the northern end of the lake and the Pack River Delta. The property has been in the same family since 1944 at a prominent geographic feature on Lake Pend Oreille, Hawkins Point. A public boat dock is right across the road, and the private shoreline is just west of the Hawkins Point public boat dock. A private beach with a dock and sitting areas on privately owned shoreline that is shared with other guests who are staying on the property. Outdoor hot tub and shower are available as shared amenities, as well as the fire pit, horseshoe pits, beach shelter, etc. that are on the privately owned beach. Barn, round pen and fenced area for horses. Access to state forestland and public lakeshore to view wildlife. Bring your own RV and plug into 50 amp service. A 30-amp converter is available upon request, but we prefer that you bring your own. As much as possible or as little as guests desire. We love meeting our guests and helping them make the most of their stay. Sunnyside is a rural neighborhood on the north shore of Lake Pend Oreille, where there's a mix of farmland and family homes. This is a popular recreation area with Sunnyside Access, Hawkins Point Boat Launch and Oden Wildlife Management Area. Many families have been here for decades, including the family that owns the property at Hawkins Point. People come here to fish, swim, ride bicycles, paddle, go boating and more. Sandpoint is home to the only Amtrak depot in Idaho and Sandpoint Airport. The closest public bus transportation is found in town, where the SPOT bus operates in Sandpoint, Dover, Kootenai and Ponderay. The site is about 10 minutes away from Highway 200, and another five minutes to Ponderay or 10 minutes to downtown Sandpoint. Follow the host's directions! Do not trust your GPS out here in the country. Vehicles under tow should enter from Highway 200 at Sunnyside Cutoff Road at mile marker 36. The outdoor hot tub is behind the home, which is a vacation rental. It may be used by other guests, so expect to alternate usage. If you bring horses, it's an extra $20 per head per night to feed out of the barn or on pasture. Dogs must be friendly with people and other dogs, as we have other guests with dogs staying on the property. The property includes a lakefront home and two bell tents (May through October) and three other RV sites that are not within sight. If you stay for a month or more, a fee for electricity will be added to your reservation. The RV site is for up to six guests to stay in their own RV. Sunnyside Road can get busy in summer time, especially on weekends when the weather is nice. Expect to see cars parked along the road on the half-mile stretch of public shoreline at Sunnyside Access and around the Hawkins Point public boat dock.
