  • Description


    Our place is in the northern tip of Idaho close to Canada. It is located on the magnificent 43 mile long lake Pend Oreille, surrounded by the Selkirk and Cabinet mountains and Schweitzer ski resort. Sandpoint has a thriving arts and music community. For people who enjoy the outdoors the choices are endless, hiking, biking, kayaking, fishing, hunting, skiing. There are great parks and hot springs in the surrounding area.
    Our home is on a farm a 15 min. drive to town. We have spectacular views of Schweitzer ski resort. We grow alfalfa hay and also have wooded areas with maintained trails for hiking, biking, snowshoeing, and xc skiing. I love to garden and do my best to keep things organic. We grow a variety of berries, produce and flowers. Our Barn is home to our miniature horses and chickens. We also have a dog. Over the years we have had many fosterchildren and exchange students. We often have visitors.
    My husband works with the ski patrol and in the summer is a building contractor, he loves to race dirt bikes and backpack. I work with foster families. I have a small art studio where I make stained glass and other projects. We both enjoy traveling and have had lots of great adventures.

    We always have a large to do list however having fun seems to be a priority.
    I am open to short or long term stays.

    There are always things to be done. Mowing and work in the garden, planting, weeding and harvesting. If you would like to participate in a project that would be great.

    Some ideas:
    work with the horses
    prepare meals
    do a art project

    We are always looking for new ideas on how to improve what we have.
