You have your choice of two houses on the same property. One, known as
Kots House, is a 2-story, 4-bedroom, 2-bath home built in the late
1800's and recently fully remodeled. It will sleep 9 people. The
other, known as Kots Studio, is smaller, also 2-story, 2-bedroom,
2-bath, and will sleep 4 people. Each has its own private yard.

The larger Kots House (4 bedrooms) features 1 California King bed
upstairs, 1 regular King bed downstairs, 1 Queen bed upstairs, 1
Double bunk bed downstairs (the bottom bunk bed is a double bed with a
single bed on top).

It has a large, pleasant family kitchen, fully equipped with many
extras. The Gathering Table seats 8 and there is counter seating for 2
adults or 3 children. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes,
silverware, glasses, coffee pot, teapot and many other useful items
not usually provided in rentals. There is also a washer and dryer in
the house.

There is cable TV in the kitchen as well as the living room, and
plenty of movies on DVD to watch.

There is also a movable electric fireplace made by the Amish from oak
trees.

There is a mural of the Schweitzer Basin in the living room of Kots
House that was painted by Russell Kotschevar, a well known local
businessman who owned and built a local pub downtown. He also carved
'Pend O'Reille Pete', a larger-than-life-size statue which is
displayed at US Bank just a couple of blocks from the property. 'Pete'
is pretty famous and travels to various exhibits all over the country.

The property has a small, grassy front yard and there are large,
beautiful trees lining the street. The back yard is small and
completely fenced with an outdoor firepit, a BBQ grill, table &
chairs, and a covered, cushioned 3 seat swing.

Smoking is permitted on the covered outdoor patio and the yard , but
smoking inside the rental houses is not allowed and will result in the
loss of deposit.

Pets are considered on a case-by-case basis. Additional deposits or
rental fees may apply.

There is room for 2-3 cars to be parked in the driveway next to the house.

Kots Studio is a 2-story, 2-bedroom, 2-bath house with one King bed
and one Queen bed upstairs, to sleep 4. It was originally the studio
of Russell Kotschevar, who carved “Pend O’Reille Pete” in this very
house, which is why it became known as “Kots Studio.”

His studio was located roughly where the living area is and
encompassed the space from wall to wall. There were no inside stairs,
we added those when converting the studio into a house. The space
where the kitchen is now was an efficiency apartment that “Kots” built
for his brother. Russell Kotschevar gained the nickname “Kots” from
his military buddies while they were all at Iwo Jima during WWII. The
upstairs was one big storage area, with nothing but unfinished outside
walls and roof. We like to think Russell would have approved of these
changes and our renovations that allowed the property to stay in the
family by turning it into a vacation rental.

The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, silverware, glasses, coffee
pot, teapot and many other useful items.

There is cable TV and plenty of movies on DVD to watch.

It has its own private small back yard and a large covered patio out
front.

There is parking for 2 cars off the alley next to the house.

Smoking is permitted on the covered outdoor patio and the yard , but
smoking inside the rental houses is not allowed and will result in the
loss of deposit.

Pets are considered on a case-by-case basis. Additional deposits or
rental fees may apply.

The property is half a block from downtown Sandpoint, about 6 miles
from Schweitzer Ski Resort and within walking distance to Lake Pend
O'Reille and City Beach Park, as well as shopping, dining, Farmer's
Market and most everything else Sandpoint has to offer.

Please Note * * * A 3-night minimum stay is required in either house.

     Attractions 


Kotschevar House is only 5 blocks from the beautiful, grassy park
that borders the City Beach area. It is an easy walk anywhere in town
for numerous restaurants & shops & activities. Public access to boat
ramp 3 or 4 blocks away, and The Mountain & skiing is about a 6 mile
drive from the house. Sandpoint is at the foot of the beautiful
Schweitzer Basin and the Cabinet mountains are clearly visible - in
any direction one looks, there are mountains coming down almost to
Lake Pend O'Reille.

Sandpoint is a quaint, fun, friendly, little town on Lake Pend
O’Reille at the base of the Schweitzer Ski Resort. Travel & Leisure
Magazine, in their March issue, named Sandpoint as one of
‘America’s Prettiest Winter Towns’, and they are right!

In summer, there are live concerts on Lake Pend O’Reille with big-name
bands, the Art Walk, Galleries, Art & Craft Shows, Auctions, Flea
Market, Wine Tasting, and Lakeside Restaurants. Coldwater Creek’s Home
Office is in downtown Sandpoint on 1st Ave. There is a Farmer’s Market
2 blocks from the house (summers only) offering everything from fresh
vegetables, fruits, baked & canned goods to jewelry and crafts. A
little town with big things to do.

In winter, you can’t beat the skiing. Just a fifteen minute drive from
Schweitzer Ski Resort, now expanded to nine ski lifts, 2900 skiable
acres plus “open bowl” skiing! 92 ski trails, YES, ninety-two! 10%
beginners & 40% intermediates. Sandpoint is a skiers and snowboarders
paradise and Idaho’s best kept secret, with multiple jumps and
lighted-trail night skiing! And if you’re a die-hard fisherman, try
the ice-fishing on the lake.

When you think of Sandpoint, you think of outstanding recreation in
all four seasons.
