Red Fir Hideaway is available for selected dates.

In our family, Northern Idaho has been a favorite destination for generations. In the summer we visit for fun on the lake, hiking and eating huckleberry everything. Ask us where to find the best huckleberry pie!

Year after year, driving around Lake Pend Oreille to the Hope Peninsula quiets the car as everyone takes in the beauty of the lake, mountains and trees.

Red Fir Hideaway has been in my family for almost 50 years, and we look forward to welcoming you to our little corner of heaven!

The space

Red Fir Hideaway is a two-structure property consisting of a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home plus a studio-style cabin with a full bathroom, kitchen and loft.

The property is located on the picturesque Hope Peninsula which is part of the the David Thompson Game Preserve. If you’ve heard about the train noise in Hope, don’t worry! We’re on the opposite side of the lake where it’s exceptionally quiet and peaceful!

Just across the street (and viewable from several spots inside the main house and cabin) is Lake Pend Oreille (pronounced Pond Or-Ray), Idaho’s largest lake where guests can enjoy boating, fishing, water skiing and more!

We are approximately 30 minutes from Sandpoint and 45 minutes from Schweitzer Mountain.

Red Fir Hideaway is just that, a peaceful hideaway! The remote location allows for tranquility and privacy, but also brings some challenges. To eliminate any surprises, we ask that guests read through the following details before booking.

– Remote location – we are approximately 30 minutes from the nearest full grocery store, so plan ahead! There is a small market about 10 minutes away. There are also a few restaurants 10-15 minutes away. We keep a house manual on-site with all of our favorite spots or you can check out our blog!

– Wifi – the WiFi speed is fast but poor weather can interfere with the signal strength. Not much can be done about this, unfortunately. Use the down time to read a book, play a card game or enjoy good conversation with your travel companion!

– Well Water – Even though the house is across the street from a beautiful lake, our well water is limited (especially in the warm summer months). We ask that guests please be conscientious of water usage.

– Comes with both charm and quirks – This is an older home and while it is super comfortable and full of charm it also has the quirks (and sometimes creeks) of an older home. We love it and hope you will, too!

Guests have exclusive and private access to the property (main house and cabin). The garage is not available for guest parking but guests will have access to the garage to use the laundry machines if desired.

    Lovely view to wake up to in the winter time! It’s also a really pretty drive from Sandpoint to Hope. Everything looked exactly as it did in the photos and was clean and well thought out
