  • We travel often and always find nice places to stay, but Mark really found a gem when he found Estate on the Lake B and B! Not only is the home beautiful, but Denise and Cary were so accommodating. The amenities are amazing! So many special touches! We enjoyed the liqueur treat, pineapple upside down cake, and specialty cheeses! We enjoyed wandering around the grounds and taking in the views of the lake on the dock. We most enjoyed the evening you guys spent visiting with us! Also, the home furnishings and art are amazing. If we return to Idaho - we will stay here again!

  • The Estate on the Lake was a fabulous find (thank you, Mark!). Denise and Cary - you are amazing hosts - catering to every need - even those that are felt, but not spoken. The accommodations are superb - down to the tiniest detail. The balance of privacy and interaction were perfect. May God bless your future.

Your gardens, home, the way you've laid it all out is art, reflecting beauty and inviting contemplation. Each thing about Estate On The Lake goes above and beyond expectations for travelers such as ourselves, and we were able to have a much needed rest from the road. We can't thank you enough!

  • Thank you for sharing your home with us. You have a beautiful home!! We enjoyed our stay with you.
    All our best,

    John and Tammy of Helena, Montana

  • In our day and age, it can be hard to slow down - the little beauties of life get missed and lost in the shuffle of every day craziness. Entering your home felt like stepping in a time machine where slow and steady are the norm, and rest and peace are the only achievements one needs to strive for. Being here gave us the opportunity to just be, and we needed that more than we even knew.
    Thank you for being so intentional about every last detail that went into our stay. Your heart shines brightly and makes everyone who enters the red gates feel seen and loved. We will most definitely be back!

    Derek and Heather of Post Falls, Idaho

    Rick and Cindy of Seattle, WA

  • We celebrated our 10th Anniversary here. It was so lovely in every respect from the Asprey bath amenities to the fresh apple juice and cherry tomatoes from the grounds. And let's not forget about mentioning the cookies from Mt. Saint Michel and the honey for tea time.
    Denise was an absolute perfect hostess and the grounds and lake view were enchanting and relaxing. Thank you, Cary, for your technical genius and instruction book. Our stay was beyond our expectations. Best to you both!

  • Such a beautiful place and lovely hosts. The best night of sleep ever with the water lapping gently and the stars above. Our only problem is not staying longer. And - the "Peace" roses are just as I remember from my families' gardens. Thank you.
    John and Ann of Westford, Massachusetts

  • We cannot say enough wonderful things about our stay! We were treated to royal treatment, beautiful views, special Cara, Cara Orange Juice delivered on a silver tray with beautiful roses, yummy pineapple upside down cake brought to our room, chocolates, the list goes on and on! The host and hostess thought of everything to make our stay and birthday really special. Their warm generosity made our stay perfect. Our room was comfortable, quiet, and so relaxing. Sitting on the balcony drinking in the beauty of the lake each morning, with our coffee, it felt as close to heaven as one can get on earth.

We're definitely coming back, and next time we're bringing all our friends with us. In the meantime, we're telling anyone who will listen about our little oasis!
    Thank you so much for everything.

    Beth, Frank, and Matthew of Mt. Vernon, Washington

  • My 70th Birthday and Gordon's Retirement.
    What a peaceful place to stop and rest awhile. The clouds were wonderous to watch in the evening. Your antiques, art work, and pictures were lovely and very interesting.
    Thank you.
    P.S. Love the giant yellow duck in the shower.

    Gordon and Christine of Colville, Washington

  • Such a beautiful home and wonderful hosts! It is just delightful to be here and make memories. The view is fantastic! The geese families were fun and joyful to see every day. And there were all kinds of little details to discover each morning. Thank you for making our stay so beautiful, and romantic, and comfortable. Blessings to you both.
    Thank you so much for the lovely place to stay and the wonderful place settings and decor. We made some beautiful memories here and we hope we can come back and stay again sometime soon,

    J. and T. of Sandpoint, Idaho

  • Sublime location. Outstanding, caring hosts. All the reviews are spot on. We are a couple in our 70's and have traveled extensively over the years, and we found this to be one of our most memorable stays. Denise and Cary are remarkable hosts, and their passion about this special place was so warmly shared with us.
    Marjorie and Bryan from Boise, Idaho

We are not ready to leave, but going back to work is waiting for us. We will definitely be back as well as refer family and friends. Thanks again.
    Ernie and Brenda of Spokane Valley, Washington

  • We wanted to spend our 10th Anniversary some place memorable and it was. Beautiful accommodations. We stayed in a spacious suite with huge bay windows overlooking the lake. The owners surprised us with flowers and confetti in the room and left us ice cream, chocolates and fruit to enjoy. Their attention to detail to make sure we felt special was wonderful. Definitely plan to come back again!
    Erika and Bob of Sandpoint, Idaho

  • We had previously stayed here and couldn't help but come back. It was my husband's and my anniversary, and my birthday, so what a better place to spend it, but here! Thank you again for the incredible stay. We will be back soon :)
    Annie and Zach of Spokane, WA

  • Our children surprised us with a 2-nite stay to celebrate our 55th Anniversary, and they could not have chosen a nicer gift! The hosts were gracious and attentive to our needs and desires, and the Suite was luxurious. Denise welcomed us warmly, and had provided special touches (roses, hearts, signs) in our Suite to recognize our special celebration. The bed and other furnishings were beautiful and very comfortable. We especially enjoyed sitting on the balcony while watching osprey, eagles, and geese, and listening to their calls as water lapped against the lake shore. The grounds are exceptional in the beauty of natural vegetation, plantings, and views of the lake and mountains; these have been enhanced through development of walkways and sitting areas that enable guests to access and soak in the peacefulness. Lastly, we much enjoyed visiting with Denise and Cary, sharing a bit of our lives, and learning more about this wonderful place! Thanks so much,
    Dean and Jackie of Olympia, Washington

  • After three weeks into our month-long road trip, we came upon paradise. And, it was just what we needed - two days of pure elegance. Everything was perfect. Thank you for this little bit of heaven.

  • I stayed at Denise and Cary’s place AGAIN, and it was awesome!! I especially enjoyed the view of the sunrise from my room, just spectacular. I also loved using the myriad of musical instruments! And the art!! And the wonderful company!!!
    Eric of Seattle, WA

  • What in incredible place! The view itself is enough, but the details Denise pays attention to and the lengths she goes to from decorations and flowers to treats, are priceless. When you add in Cary's art, it is all spectacular. Loved relaxing in the tub and watching the birds on the water. I cannot believe what a hidden gem this place is. Thank you so much for a beautiful celebration weekend. See you again!
    Jordan and Janelle of Spokane Valley, Washington

  • Thank you again! We felt like we were at a loss for words. Your Bed and Breakfast was incredible, and we enjoyed every second of it. We have stayed at many Bed and Breakfasts and this is definately our favorite. The attention to detail is spectacular. We enjoyed the antiques and beautiful art. Thank you for the stay and we will be back soon.
    Annie and Zachary of Washington State

  • What an incredible experience!  We travel a fair bit, but this is our first time in staying at a B & B.  It did not disappoint!  I feel no other B & B will ever compare.  Thank you so much for all the personal touches!  We will be back!!
    Ryan and Carla of Cranbrook, British Columbia, Canada

  • We had a wonderful time! The birthday decorations made our little vacation feel extra special. I love the style, furniture, and decorations of this B & B! I wish we had more time to spend here, but enjoyed all the benefits you've put together for our stay. Thank you! Hoping to find time to come back in the summer!
    Stephanie and Mike of Spokane, Washington

  • What a luxurious overnight! We thoroughly enjoyed all the papering and special birthday decorations, not to mention the outstanding comforts of your beautiful home. We enjoyed the music room, too. And the view, WOW! Can't want to come back in the summer. Thank you for everything.
    Gary and Cynthia of Coeur d'Alene

  • We had a lovely stay - not one detail was forgotten by Denise and Cary. From the intricately decorated breakfast tables each morning, to brushing the snow off our car, to the beautiful roses and confetti hearts decorating our room upon arrival, we truly felt welcome, pampered and refreshed after our stay. You have a gorgeous home and we look forward to returning for a summertime visit one day! We will be recommending your B & B to all our friends and family.
    Brooke and Brian of Spirit Lake, Idaho

  • This Bed and Breakfast located on beautiful lake Pend Oreille is a true gem. Owner's Denise and Cary were the ultimate hosts. The attention to detail (heated towels, chocolates, exquisite furnishings, espresso machine, etc..) was unparalleled. My wife and I have been to close to a 100 B&B's... This is the best. We, no doubt will be back again.
    Dial and Hilary, of Spokane, Washington

  • Fantastic experience visiting this beautiful B&B on the lake. We called ahead and Denise was extremely nice on the phone and even though we didn’t stay, offered that we could charge for a VERY nominal fee that simply covered their electricity.
    We arrived and Cary had come out to plow the snow so we wouldn't have to wade through a recent snow fall. Denise had coffee and tea on and they opened up their home to us while we waited for a charge.
    A stunning home (which is an entire other story). We really enjoyed our visit and even booked a room for our return trip.
    60+ miles per hour charging rate and top notch service.

    Ketra and Tim, of Prosser, Washington

  • Happy New Year! Thank you for a warm and lovely stay on the Lake.

    Ildiko and Wayne of Spokane, Washington

  • This was my first stay here, and I had a wonderful experience! The house and rooms are beautiful and have almost every amenity you could imagine! It was also a great location for heading up to ski at Schweitzer. Denise and Cary are amazing hosts! I will definitely be returning!
    Clare of Spokane, Washington

  • Thank you so much, Denise and Cary - for your warm and gracious hospitality, and for sharing your beautiful estate with us. We struggle to find the joy in Christmas with the grief we live with. Spending time here in this place of quiet beauty and peace was just what we needed. I feel like our hearts took a step forward in healing. Bless you!
    Megan of Spokane, Washington

  • What a relaxing, peaceful couple of days - and such a special way to spend Christmas with our extended family. A beautiful home in a beautiful setting that will long be a cherished memory. Thank you for all the attention to the lovely table settings and for making us feel so at home. You are special people.

  • I had a wonderful Christmas here. Cary and Denise made the stay perfect.
    Matt of Spokane, Washington

  • A lovely room in a beautiful Estate. Thank you for your special Birthday celebration and decorations. The mousse was delicious. I believe the Swans returned this morning. I took photos of them floating peacefully on the lake as the fog lifted. What a beautiful day and gorgeous setting. Love the coffee machine, too!
    It was wonderful meeting you; you have impeccable attention to detail!

    Donna, 5th generation local from Sandpoint, Idaho

  • What a great B and B. I was able to relax, thoroughly, after a big hike, (the Pacific Crest Trail.)
    Marshall of Irvine, California

  • Oh! Denise and Cary, this was such a lovely place to spend my 71st birthday! As usual, this B & B is the nicest and friendliest place on earth! You think of and anticipate everyone's possible needs, and then some! The furnishings and Cary's artwork are outstanding. We know it's a lot of work to maintain, but the results are impeccable! When John told me that we were able to come visit you again, I was so excited and couldn't wait to get here. It would be so easy to stay forever. You make us all feel like family. We love you,
    John and Marcie of Spokane Valley, Washington

  • What a fabulous place to stay! This is the best ever B n B we have had the opportunity to spend some time with. Great service. We loved the theme "drawing/painting" and "photography" breakfasts. Food was awesome and information we will bring with us and never forget. You are both great artists!!
    Fred and Norma of Boise, Idaho

  • Thank you so very much for yet another fantastic stay at your B and B. It just keeps getting better!! Arriving here was like coming to see old friends - that just happen to be amazing cooks with fantastic themed breakfasts and comfy beds. Thank you for going above and beyond for our son's birthday weekend. I know it will always be a memorable time for all of us! See you soon - we will be back.
    Leigh and Stu of Carlsbad, California

  • Thank you so much for making my birthday weekend so memorable and unique. I worked at a hotel for a year and a half and never could have realized the extent someone could go to offer 11 out of 10 hospitality. This was more than great service; I experienced the life of royalty while being able to play the drums like old friends. We had excellent conversations, you got me lunch when I was alone for the day, served me birthday cake in my room, and so much more. You have brought hospitality to a standard I will never forget, and a level I doubt will be beat. Thanks for everything!
    Tyler of Bonner's Ferry, Idaho

  • What a gift you have given us. Amazing memories of the best breakfast ever, a drum lesson, drum sticks, and great conversation. You have an amazingly beautiful home, and although you didn't set out to run a bed and breakfast, it feels like you were meant to do this. We will cherish our memories of our 24th anniversary. Thank you doesn't seem like enough for making our weekend so special. We have felt spoiled beyond measure. We will be telling everyone we know about EstateOnTheLake. And because I have no other words, Thank you again for Everything!!
    Josh and Tobey of Columbia Falls, Montana

  • We always love coming up here to get away and relax. This time was for our anniversary and they made it so special! The peaceful water, comfy sheets/bed and amazing breakfast! This time we had the best French toast with orange zest, butter and syrup. We will always come back to our get-a-way spot. Thanks for always making us feel at home away from home! Be back soon!
    Aubrey and Tim of Spokane, Washington

  • Thank you very much for the special attention and care. We loved our stay! It was wonderful to have such a peaceful setting to celebrate our anniversary. Our breakfast was delicious! The view was amazing and added to all your hard work to make this night away extra special. Take care.
    Janet and David of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

  • What a lovely evening . . . and morning we experienced in your beautiful home! You have a talent for creating a welcoming environment - so many amenities, from the amazing light coming in the windows, the awesome view, the coffee, candies and ice cream, beautiful sensual soaps and lotions . . . truly an amazing stay. Thank you both so much for your warm welcome and kindness.
    Linda and Jim of Seattle, Washington

  • Thank you so much for your gracious hospitality and offering a unique and memorable time at the Estate On The Lake. We thoroughly enjoyed the extra special touches, the use of the instruments, the art work and antiques. We look forward to coming again! God bless you.
    Dan and Sherry of Trout Creek, Montana

  • Oh my goodness, we are so happy we found Estate On The Lake to celebrate Dennis' birthday. The special treats for his birthday, and the special touches in the room are phenomenal. The breakfasts were to die for! Thank you so much for all of your hard work to make this the best B & B we've ever stayed in . . . and we've stayed in a lot of them over the years. We will definitely be back.
    Dennis and Peggy Middleton of Spokane Valley, Washington

  • Rick and I came needing a respite. We are leaving feeling rested in body, and in spirit. Your gracious care and concern for your guests was a blessing to our hearts. Thank you for all the ways you made this weekend special for us. You both go above and beyond. We can't wait to come again! Thank you for making us so welcome and feeding us so well!
    Barb and Rick of Spokane, Washington

  • What a wonderful bed and breakfast you have. Thank you for all you had to offer. Your attention to detail is amazing. We loved the breakfast with themes and your willingness to talk with us and answer our questions Thanks again. We hope to make it back this way.
    Bret and Kate of Glide, Oregon

  • Thank you for making our Anniversary so special. All of the personal touches made our stay magical. By far the nicest B and B we have visited. Thank you again; we will be back.
    Craig and Michele of Sandpoint, Idaho

  • We are repeat Guests! This is our Shangri-La. We just can't get enough of this especially lovely, beautiful spot! Fall is so spectacular with the wonderful trees changing into a kaleidoscope of reds, golds and oranges. Early this morning, I took several pictures of a young buck just outside my window by the lake. I followed the deer and there he was munching on the fallen apples. Also, breakfasts are always a treat with Cary's blueberry pancakes. Five star treatment all the way.
    J and D of Irvine, California

  • Thank you so much for the wonderful stay! Everything was beautiful and/or delicious. The anniversary breakfast made us feel so special. The sounds of the lake were amazing. Now we need to go back home, to our house which lacks a lake, walk-in shower, or three course breakfast :)
    Emily and Kyle of Portland, Oregon

  • When I was searching online for Joey and me to have a little getaway for our one year anniversary, I came across the Estate On The Lake. How I am so happy I did! We had such a nice relaxing time together. The lake view is amazing. Joey loved the espresso, and the breakfast was so yummy! Everything was perfect! We will definitely be back in the future. Thank you for the wonderful stay. P.S. The little cake, chocolates, and ice creams were a plus, and enjoyed as well. Thank you!!!
    Chantel and Joey of Post Falls, Idaho

  • We had such a wonderful experience celebrating our 4th anniversary with all the special things and touches you did to make our anniversary something we will never forget. The view of the lake from Suite 2 is spectacular! We spent much time on the deck in the evenings with the full moon shining on the water. We enjoyed playing our guitar and violin and loved getting to know the other guests and talk with both of you in the beautiful music room with the view of the lake. Everything was immaculately clean and organized and we had everything we needed. I loved the towel warmer and in-room coffee/expresso/latte maker! We will be back and wish you both the best!
    Carol and Darrel of Paso Robles, California

  • We had a difficult time deciding what to do for our anniversary this year. It is our 10th Anniversary so we wanted to do something special, but we had taken the family to Disney World earlier in the year so we couldn't afford something extravagant. We were looking for somewhere we could get away and enjoy the outdoors and each other in a cozy, quiet setting. We could not have found a better place! Everything about our stay was exactly what we hoped for, and then some. The setting and amenities were amazing, but the care and detail, and the thoughtfulness you put into every aspect of our experience was what made it truly special. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to excellence. We will be back!
    Nate and Michelle of Colbert, Washington

  • Thank you for an amazing 7th Wedding Anniversary weekend. From the minute we arrived, the wonderful greeting at the door, to the informative tour, and the amazing view, we were delighted to be here. It goes without saying that the breakfast was absolutely exceptional. We enjoy new experiences and typically do not re-visit the same place twice. But we are looking forward to our next visit here at Estate On The Lake. Thank you for your hospitality.
    Joey and Tiffany of Spokane, Washington

  • We had such a wonderful time here celebrating our 23rd anniversary. The house is so beautiful and we really enjoyed our balcony overlooking the lake. The attention to detail was exquisite, from the anniversary decorations to the place card settings. Everything was wonderful. We are already hoping to bring some of our close friends here the next time they visit. Thank you so much !!!
    Will and Joanne, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

  • Based on previous Guest Book comments, "oasis" is the most popular description for the Estate On The Lake. Denise and Cary, you not only provide a place of great rest, but you also invite your guests to imagine a fuller life. Most of us are busy with daily ruts and tiresome routines, and there's a certain kind of comfort found when we're on auto pilot. By the second morning of our stay, I felt a yearning to reconnect with my creative, playful side. Not only do you surround your guests with beautiful scenery and accommodations, but you deliciously nourish them - both body and soul. Thank you.
    Kathleen and Scott of Vancouver, Washington

  • Thank you for such an amazing, perfect, and wonderful anniversary that you both blessed us with. This Bed and Breakfast is a very special place that makes us feel at ease and at home. You both went way above and beyond to make this 29th Anniversary one we will always remember deep in our hearts. The generosity and perfection is beyond words.

    Our prayers will be with you both and should the Lord be willing, we will be back again to enjoy another precious time with you. May God continue to bless you both. Yours in Jesus Christ,

    Scott and Gloria of Pico Rivera, California

  • Thank you both so much for going above and beyond to make our wedding night amazing. Every last detail of our stay was perfect, and we are truly grateful to have had this amazing night at your Estate. We will be back next year for our one year anniversary! Again, thank you guys for everything. It was perfect.
    Timothy and Jennifer of Bonner's Ferry, Idaho

  • We certainly enjoyed our time at your Estate on the Lake B & B. Everything was first class from beginning until we left. Beautiful place; you didn't leave out a single detail when designing your B & B. We will be back. The theme breakfasts were great and very delicious!!
    Dennis and Norma of Calgary, Alberta, Canada

  • My wife and I have stayed in well over one hundred b & b's, and Estate on the Lake is easily one of the best. The location, the house, the room, the food and the art and music are wonderful. I spent a relaxing hour singing and playing on a Martin guitar. (Never done that before at a b & b.) And on top of that, Denise and Cary are delightful, delightful hosts!
    John and Carolyn of Morgan Hill, California

  • This was our first trip to Idaho and our last night here. We certainly enjoyed the hospitality and wonderful accommodations. The breakfast was so good, especially the French toast and bacon! Thank you for a delightful ending to our trip.
    Rick and Anne of Nashville, Tennessee

  • What a fantastic place you have! The combination of luxury, beauty, and whimsy is a total delight - and Cary's breakfasts are just plain great. (Best French toast we ever had. Ever.) We were blessed with beautiful weather, until today; had a fantastic ride in Steven Ruff's float plane, and the Steelers won. All of that, plus your amazing hospitality, made for a memorable weekend. Thank you.
    Terri and Larry of Pittsburgh, PA

  • We LOVED EVERY BIT of our visit here. Thank you for all of the birthday celebration "extras," and the wonderful conversations, and your generosity all the way around.
    Margot and Scott of Davis, California

  • As I read thru the previous visitors' notes, they all reflect and embody all our feelings, also. The entire property, presence, and hostess reflect an aura of tranquility and one with nature. We loved all the special art, both inside and out, and the unique surroundings! At 5 am we watched Jupiter and the moon rise over the lake. At 11 am, as we prepare to depart, we watch the sun twirling on the lake like tiny stars. We have one regret - we have to leave. P.S. How much is it to move in!!
    Mike and Teckla of Raleigh, North Carolina

  • Wow! Spectacular! Thank you, Denise, for the lovely, lengthy reception. Showing Cary's amazing sculptures and artwork was so appreciated. Also, your photography. The room was beautiful. There wasn't anything that was missed in regards to detail. Breakfast was delicious. The best French Toast ever! I plan to try to copy at home. Again, thank you for sharing your lovely bed and breakfast and artwork.
    Keven and Kyle of Detroit, Michigan

  • Thank you for a lovely evening and morning. What a glorious way to wake up - sunshine and the calming sound of water rolling up to the shore. We are so grateful for your hospitality!
    Kind regards,

    Reagan and Richard of Spokane, Washington

  • Our children, Diana and Kelly, knew just what we needed when they gave us a gift night here in your lovely home! We have enjoyed the beauty and peace during our two day stay - so enjoyed the area here, walking, reading, the conversations and accommodations - all so refreshing! "A bit of bliss in the turmoil of life, as it is in this world." Thank you for caring for your guests and making us feel so comfortable. You have a special gift that you two are sharing with others!
    Vern and Carol of Spokane, Washington

  • Your themed breakfasts (fantastic!) fed our bodies and minds, your gentle spirits and offer of loving support fed our souls. The beauty and peace of this place is unmatched. The passion you share as hosts is incredible. Thank you for making these days with you so special as we celebrated our daughter's wedding. You heightened the joyful moments with your magical touches.
    Don and Arlene of Mount Vernon, Washington

  • You made us feel spoiled rotten our entire stay - and we loved it! All due to your attention to detail, kindness, and warm personalities!
    Annie and John of Goldendale, Washington

  • Recently spent a night of luxury at Estate on the Lakes B&B . Not a single detail was left to chance, from the fresh roses in every room, the fluffy bath towels, the decadent bath products, gourmet breakfast to the lovely bed linens. The only thing bad about staying, was we had to leave!
    We certainly will share our experience with friends. Thank you for a lovely indulgence.

    John and June…Spokane Washington

  • Estate on the Lake B & B definitely has the WOW factor!!! Both Cary and Denise have and show their passion on a daily basis! Their attention to detail far surpasses any type "A" person I've known, including myself! I felt like I was visiting a friend, and their house is ever so welcoming! Each room is different and unique in its own way; Cary's artwork adds to its uniqueness and beauty! Cary's and Denise's love for education come out in every way, and it is very enjoyable. The grounds are gracious and lovely to walk, as is the area! It is also enjoyable just sitting on the dock and enjoying the day! It is a treasure away from home, and I am so glad I had this experience! Breakfast was an experience on its own, each day different, just the table settings were a delight to look forward to! Cary is a Class Act with his cooking. I wish I could take him home with me! I can't say enough good things; I lost my husband in Sept., 2016, and Cary and Denise have now made Sept. 2017, very special!
    Annie of Orange, California

  • Thank you Cary and Denise for another great experience and the friendship that we feel for you. This is the highlight of our year to spend 2 days at your wonderful estate. It is hard to describe how you treat us. You make us feel so special and pampered. You never forget anything and everything is done with class. Cary: Diann and I loved the drum lessons. We loved your patience and teaching technique. Denise, thank you for sharing and covering every little need. You are the two most gracious and kind people we have had the pleasure being around. Your Friends,
    Don and Diann Wilhelm of Rathdrum, Idaho

  • Recently spent a night of luxury at Estate on the Lake B&B . Not a single detail was left to chance, from the fresh roses in every room, the fluffy bath towels, the decadent bath products, gourmet breakfast to the lovely bed linens. The only thing bad about staying, was we had to leave!
    We certainly will share our experience with friends. Thank you for a lovely indulgence.

    John and June of Spokane, Washington

  • You two have spared no expense to make this bed and breakfast top notch! Our stay here was worth the effort we made to try to get here! Every detail of our stay meant so much - the decorations, the soaps and shampoo, the linens, the food, the snacks - all of it was incredible. Thanks so much!
    Colt and Sandi of Denver, Colorado

  • This is a marvelous and magical place. Thank you so much for the care and kindness given us on our 50th anniversary.
    Brenda and Michael of Creston, British Colombia, Canada

  • WOW!! Absolutely blessed by every small detail - you both have been attentive to. The home and location are absolutely gorgeous and life giving - and what you both add individually to the experience is a treasure! Perfect for us. We loved our stay! AND - it will be a memory for us how personal you made our breakfast table this am. With everything for a "dining Artist." BEAUTIFUL!!
    Jan and Bill of Otis Orchards, Washington

  • This was the best anniversary stay of our lives in the best and most luxurious B & B we've ever had the pleasure of staying at. Denise and Cary took care of every beautiful detail, from the sweet little anniversary cake (best mousse ever!) to the most beautiful 3-course breakfast. The only regret is that we couldn't have stayed longer . . thank you and hope to return!
    Kate and Marek of Warsaw, Poland

  • Can we just say, WOW!!! From the moment we drove into the estate, we knew we were in for a real treat. When we think of a romantic bed and breakfast retreat, this is the epitome. Everything you need for an amazing, relaxing stay. It's all in the details! Denise and Cary are loving, caring, gracious hosts. We would love to return again and tell our friends and family about the best B & B in the Northwest!
    Carolyn and David of Lewiston, Idaho

  • Thank you for a very relaxing stay after a 3 week kayaking and hiking trip! Exactly what we needed to re-group before our journey home to Salt Lake City. Enjoyed the dock, scenery, and water. Loved breakfast themes, a very special touch. Will highly recommend to all our friends in SLC. (10 star) !
    Lynn and Felicia of Utah

  • We enjoyed our night immensely! What a beautiful place and wonderful service! Everything was so pleasant and lovely. We were truly impressed. We have never enjoyed an overnight stay more. All the little special touches were very endearing! We will surely come again.
    Nick and Emily of Post Falls, Idaho

  • Beautiful home. Everything is elegant and First Class+. I especially like the music themes, and I wish I were staying longer so I could play.
    Paul of Salt lake City, Utah

  • Wow! What a great way to wind up our summer! Our experience here @ Estate On The Lake B & B was far beyond our expectations. There was nothing more that we could have wanted for . . . other than a couple more days! Thank you for everything! Your attention to detail is unsurpassed!
    Ali and Glen of Fruitvale, British Columbia, Canada

  • You have taken hospitality to a High Art Form! Thank you for making our 47th Anniversary so delicious!
    Vanessa and Mike of Tucson, Arizona

  • Truly an experience. The peace we felt here has not been felt in a while for us North Carolinians. Great relaxation and pause. I am in awe of your flora and fauna. Love your Maples. Breakfast was a real treat! We will definitely be back.
    Luke and Joy of _____________, North Carolina

  • Wow! What a beautiful home you have. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. Your attention to detail was over the top, and made our stay even more special. The food was amazing! You should open a restaurant in your spare time :) Can't wait to return to our new favorite B and B.
    Rich and Nicki of Post Falls, Idaho

  • You guys have mastered the excellence of a B & B. Denise you are astonishing from the moment I rang you on the telephone, to staying in your fine detailed Estate. We enjoyed every moment. This was an experience I would recommend to anyone! Thank you for our successful 1 year anniversary. We shall be back for August 27 every year!!
    Jonathan and Carla of Rathdrum, Idaho

  • We could not have asked for a more beautiful stay for our 5th Wedding Anniversary! Your home is beautiful and we loved every minute of our stay! The food was amazing, and all of the extra little to touches were so appreciated! We can't wait to come back and stay again, and maybe get a drum lesson!
    Sean and Danielle of Spokane, Washington

  • This has been amazing! Thank you both so much for all that you have done to make our day one to never forget. You both have made a place that is filled with so much love, and that is very hard to find anymore. Thank you.
    Chrissy and Matt of Spokane, Washington

  • Sitting here looking at this serene, peaceful, sparkling lake gives us a sense of joy to have experienced this. It is a memory we take with us! Denise and Cary - you have gifted us as amazing hosts. Your "gift of hospitality" cannot be put into words! It, quite simply, must be experienced. Thank you for making and giving us this special memory of our 50th wedding anniversary. We have seen and experienced many glorious adventures in our 50 years . . . this is at the top!!!
    Bill and Mary of Lewiston, Idaho

  • We have trouble finding the right words to convey how much we enjoyed our stay here - the only disappointment was that we couldn't stay an extra night as there was "no room at the Inn." (no surprise) Your attention to detail - your kindness, sincerity, your beautiful home have made our visit memorable. We will see you again!
    Lyn and Pat of Spokane, Washington, and Phoenix, Arizona

  • You've created an exquisite atmosphere for recalibration and relaxation. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and we'll highly recommend your lake house to our friends and family. God Bless You!
    Don and Joy of Post Falls, Idaho

  • I asked Joe to just "find a place" and surprise me . . . and he did!!! What a beautiful evening and morning we spent in your bed and breakfast. All your TLC for our 44th Anniversary GET AWAY left us with big smiles in our hearts. You are the best, and know that we appreciated your kindness. We hope to return and stay for more than 1 night - God bless you LOTS!
    Joe and Roxie of Helena, Montana

  • Another memorable and perfect stay. I hope to make this an annual tradition. You two are so welcoming and care about making our stay as lovely as can be, with unexpected surprises to delight us. You two are a blessing and we are so grateful that you would share this little piece of heaven with us. We do feel celebrated. Take care.
    Kathy and Mike of Spokane, Washington

  • Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality. Everything was perfect! Your attention to all the details creates such an unforgettable experience. And the breakfasts - amazingly delicious!! Hopefully, we will have an opportunity to visit again some day.
    Irene and John of Santa Barbara, California

  • What a beautiful, peaceful retreat you have here. So glad you are willing to share it. We enjoyed and appreciated all the efforts from you to make guests feel at home, from the room amenities to the special breakfasts, to the beautiful grounds. We will be back again some day, and we'll let others know of this truly special place.
    Ken and Sheilah of Billings, Montana

  • Thank you so much for the wonderful stay and for your gracious hospitality. Your home and property are both spectacular!! The extra details you put into our stay made it all a wonderful experience. Thanks so much.
    Kirk and Robyn of Santa Barbara, California

  • What a delight to step into your world of giving guests the experience of excellence in all its forms and fashions. It was the "little things" that spoke of detail and thoughtfulness: notes on the table, roses in our room, a helium balloon and garland commemorating our anniversary, creative "tablescapes" each morning that brought pleasure and beauty, warm welcome that made us feel truly welcomed and valued. And then there was the food! What can we say that would do justice to what we were served? Every course was delicious to the palette and delight to the eye. We knew you took care to cook only the best . . . and we ate far too much! So, thank you for a beautiful stay in your beautiful B and B.
    Robin and Marcia of Seattle, Washington

  • We are sincerely thankful for your gracious hospitality. You are the perfect host in the perfect environment to relax and enjoy all the serene beauty that Idaho has to offer. Your wonderfully decorated home and gourmet breakfasts are beyond description. Your attention to detail on our behalf has made us feel welcome and special. You will see us again.
    Justin and Lisa of Apple Valley, California

  • We celebrated our 29th anniversary here. Wow! Denise and Cary, you went above and far beyond in making our stay memorable - we will most definitely be back! The view from the deck is stunning. Our breakfast time was also made special. Every detail has been well-planned and thought out, even fresh picked heirloom tomatoes straight from the garden donned our beautifully decorated room (the anniversary special!). Blessings to you both!
    Doug and Lori of Spokane, Washington

  • It's with sad hearts that we have to leave this glorious place! It has been a restful, relaxing weekend and a time for re-energizing our souls. We love your bed and breakfast, and the hospitality and amenities are amazing. There is nothing that could make it any better! Perfection! Thanks again for the awesome breakfasts and the time we got to visit (and the music theme!).
    Dale and Carrie of Rockford, Washington

  • We couldn't imagine a better place to spend our honeymoon. The beauty and care put into one room was amazing. We thank you so very much for making our wedding night, with that beautiful touch of elegance we didn't know we needed. Thank you so much for having us and having this beautiful oasis for others to enjoy. With gratitude,
    Will and Mandy of Newport Washington

  • Our stay with you has been perfect, blessed with the beauty and serenity we craved during this too-brief hiatus from our hectic lives. Every glance through your beautiful home and gardens, every gaze across the breathtaking lake has revealed some loved new surprise that delights and renews the spirit. We are so glad to have discovered this little slice of heaven, and look forward to returning someday!
    George and Susann of Sammamish, Washington

  • Our morning coffee will always lack something after coffee spent out on the balcony looking upon the glorious view. The Estate On The Lake gave me the serenity I was in desperate need and the quiet yet adventurous lake my mom so enjoys. Denise and Cary work tirelessly at making the stay something truly remarkable. A fun girl's get-away and we didn't have to leave Idaho - but now we wish we didn't have to head south so soon. All of our friends will be not just pushed, but prodded to come and enjoy the splendor that is The Estate On The Lake.
    Hannah and Carol of Lewiston, Idaho

  • Beautiful setting and delicious breakfast. Hospitality and attention to detail were top notch. Thank you for providing a relaxing escape. P.S. The ice cream really topped it off.
    Rich and Sandy of Moscow, Idaho

  • Thank you for everything, for making us feel special and welcome. We now have a special memory of our 25th Wedding Anniversary :)
    Joe and Dorothy of Priest River, Idaho

  • The hospitality has been second to none. My only regret is not staying longer. Before we leave, we are making additional reservations for a more extended stay. The balcony and views are worth the trip here, all by itself :) Thank you for creating such a safe and inviting environment. We will see you soon. Thank you so much!
    Jack and Alexis of Sandpoint, ID

  • My third year in a row and I can only say it just keeps getting better! Hard to leave this morning. I will miss the beautiful grounds, perfectly appointed room, delicious meals, and your thoughtful attention to every detail! Until next year . . .
    China of Los Angeles, California

  • The Best!
    We have traveled extensively throughout the world, but this gem of an estate is one of the greatest we have ever stayed at! Denise and Cary (the sweetest, most thoughtful couple on the planet) have created a paradise on this stunning lake. Their loving attention to every detail truly makes you feel at home ... but like royalty. We looked forward to each creatively themed (such as "music" "drawing" "bubbles", etc.) delicious breakfast served each morning on the beautiful terrace overlooking the lake. The location was perfect and we had a great time swimming from the dock in the sheltered bay and then returning to lounge on the comfortable chaise on the private dock. If you are looking to stay somewhere romantic, quiet and scenic on the lake, you have found the best spot. They could be charging a lot more for what they are offering, so this is the best value accommodations I've seen anywhere. I just hope they don't get so popular that we won't be able to get reservations anymore! We enjoyed our stay so much that we immediately booked another week in 2018 - we plan on returning annually now.

    Mike and Kyle of Palm Springs, California

  • Thank you for your gracious hospitality! The serene setting of your B & B, the luxurious accommodations, your attention to detail, the themed - and delicious! breakfasts, the time we were able to spend chatting with both of you - all contributed to our wonderful memories of our stay with you. We enjoyed every moment!
    Cathy and Chris of Maple Valley, Washington

  • Thanks so much for the hospitality in your beautiful oasis. The attention to detail was magnificent! A fabulous room, linens, amenities, grounds, and the view is amazing! The breakfast was fantastic and very romantic!
    Jeff and Lynnece of Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada

  • The ROSE may be the queen of all flowers, but the real beauty and elegance here are thanks to the two of you. Our heartfelt thanks to you for opening your home to us and celebrating with us this week. You have really made our anniversary so special and memorable with the warm company, bubbly fun, and the delicious food. You put a lot of thought and care into everything for us, and we truly appreciate it. Beyond grateful,
    Justin and Jenai of Spokane, Washington

  • Thank you so much for our special treats on our anniversary! The stay here was fantastic. You both were friendly and made us feel at home - table settings were very thoughtful! Food was excellent!! Will recommend to family and friends. Thank you so much.
    James and Kim of Spokane, Washington

  • Having two young children, this was the perfect Bed and Breakfast to stay and relax, but still be close to home. We truly felt the calm and peace of a vacation and soaked up all the generosity and splendid hospitality of Denise and Cary. We definitely will be back and will be recommending this tranquil location to all of our friends. Thank you for the great home away from home.
    Bethany and Joshua, "the locals," of Sandpoint, Idaho

  • I'm sitting on the balcony at 7:30 a.m. enjoying the morning sun, the sight of enthusiastic water skiiers taking advantage of calm waters, and the beauty of this beautiful spot on earth. This is a tiny slice of heaven! Thank you for your wonderful hospitality. Your B & B is delightful!
    Rayanne and Tom of Manchester, Washington

  • We loved everything about your place! Chatting with you two at breakfast was fun, and the food, the view, our bedroom . . . honestly I could go on and on. Thank you so much!
    Jane and Darek of Port Orchard, Washington

  • Thank you for helping the two of us celebrate anniversary #33. The room was very comfortable, and we both loved sitting on the balcony in the afternoons and evenings. The breakfasts were a treat! The swim off the dock yesterday was very refreshing for both of us. You two do a very good job of making people feel comfortable
    Jim and Marcia Becker of Moscow, Idaho

  • Thank you for an amazing experience. Very comfortable, amazing food, and the view is breathtaking!! Your attention to detail is impeccable. We will definitely be back!
    Sandi and Alan of Chilliwack, British Colombia

  • Denise and Cary, you are the most kind and thoughtful hosts imaginable, and your home that you so hospitably share is so beautiful, and so peaceful. Thank you so much - this is such an oasis, such a blessing. May your kindness bring many blessings to you. Every detail was so lovingly cared for - and the breakfast was one of the best we have ever had. If we could, we would give you 10 stars! And in our hearts we do. We will be back anytime we come this way, and happily recommend your BnB to all!
    Jobin and Darrel of San Juan, Washington

  • EstateOnTheLake is the best B&B we have ever stayed at (and we are experienced) in every regard: perfect lakefront setting--swim off the lovely dock and relax in loungers under umbrellas in the sunshine. The beautiful and spacious home is situated in a quiet area near Sand Point ID with paths to spacious lawn, shady areas with hammock, or Adirondack chairs. Denise and Cary make sure every aspect of your stay is a delight...they are welcoming, warm, talented hosts who think of everything . Breakfast is so good ! Cary's egg bendict is a 10 and the private tables set so beautifully on the patio make you feel very special. All the details and more are covered at this very lovely home and it gets all the stars !
    Darrel Suthergreen

  • Thank you so very much for your gracious and kind hospitality to me. There aren't enough superlatives to describe this breathtaking beautiful place on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille. I shall never forget being under what I call your Psalm 91 Tree. God bless you. In gratitude,
    Barbara of Edmonds, Washington

  • We had the best time! Thank you so much; our 10 year Anniversary was the best time in the most beautiful place we could imagine! We will see you again for sure.
    Jay and Amber of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

  • We are so excited to be back!! Once again, Denise and Cary have gone above and beyond to make us feel so comfortable and cared for. Breathtaking views, beautiful grounds and delicious breakfast! We cannot wait to come back, yet again . . and again and again!!
    Allen and Erin of Spokane, Washington

  • Another fabulous stay at Estate on the Lake! We so appreciate the beautiful and serene environment you have created here. As usual, the attention to detail is incredible. The food is amazing! Thank you for making our anniversary celebration even more special. We'll see you again soon!
    Lori and Dean of Spokane, Washington

  • What a wonderful experience for both of us! Your bed and breakfast, your attention to detail, your personal attention to our comfort and the sharing of life experiences. We certainly will return to this Beautiful, Beautiful Place! See you soon . . .
    George and Donna of Colbert, Washington

  • I wanted to thank you again for the fuss you make over people like me who are celebrating birthdays! The decorations, treats, and roses are very much appreciated, as is your similar attention to detail in the rooms. Your breakfast, Cary, has always been exceptional the previous times we've stayed with you, but I honestly think that's the best omelette I've had in recent memory. Best wishes,
    Lynne and Rick of Priest Lake, Idaho

  • You have created an amazing oasis allowing us to get away from all the demands of reality - a veritable retreat! The attention to detail that you have placed toward our 40th Wedding Anniversary celebration was just incredible and spectacular! You went above and beyond and this anniversary will most certainly be one that we will remember, treasure, and talk about for many, many years to come. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts - your generosity and hospitality have left a wondrous imprint on our souls . . . Life permitting, we look forward to connecting with you again! God Bless You! Merci infiniment!!! Blessings and Light,
    Laura and Gerry of Alberta, Canada

  • Truly a special place. We appreciate your graciousness and wonderful attention to every little detail. So wish we could linger. Will return. Thank you.
    Marlene and Gary of Ukiah, California

  • Thank you! Wonderful, comfortable accommodations and an excellent breakfast. Thank you for hosting us.
    Katherine and Jason of Calgary, Alberta, Canada

  • You have a lovely bed and breakfast. I really appreciated your sharing the stories about some of your lovely treasures. The room, atmosphere, breakfast, attention to detail were amazing. I had a lot going on last year, including my mother passing away. So this time of relaxing, listening to the water, and enjoying the peace helped me immensely.
    Vicki and Paul of Spokane, Washington

  • Thank you so much, Denise and Cary, for a very memorable experience. Dave and I have celebrated our anniversary in many different places, but this place has been the absolute best experience! The details are beautiful from the sweet and thoughtful chocolates and cake in our room, to the beautiful outdoor furniture and umbrellas on the dock. So many wonderful things to describe - not enough room here, though. We'll be back.
    David and Jennifer of Spokane, Washington

  • Beautiful Room and View, Awesome Breakfast, Wonderful Hosts. Thank you.
    Jim and Janet of Spokane, Washington

  • You have made a beautiful place. Shawn and I could not have ended our wedding night more perfect, or started the next morning as Mr. and Mrs. More perfectly. Thank you so much for making every detail beautiful and perfect. We will look forward to staying here again.
    Shawn and Allison of Newport, Washington

  • We enjoyed our stay very much! My husband and I had a great weekend; it was very relaxing. The breakfast was wonderful. Denise and Cary did a fantastic job.
    Jeff and Sadie of Spokane, Washington

  • We had an amazing experience! We love finding bed and breakfasts, and this was by far our favorite one! We were so impressed with the room and the stunning view, the delicious breakfast, and attentive hosts. It was great to lay out on the dock and relax as well! We will definitely be coming back! Thanks so much!
    Zach and Alexis of Moscow, Idaho

    1. View (beautiful)
    2. Food (creative, delicious!)
    3. Accommodations (comfortable and luxurious)
    4. Owners (very interesting, experienced in life and lovely to talk to!)
    ** Not in any order :) A must to "come back" place. We will share our experience. Thank you very much.

    Mike and Marina of Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada, and Vernon, British Columbia

  • We so needed a place to come where we could renew our spirits. This year has been a year of loss and also many answered prayers for loved ones. Thank you for sharing your special ways to care for others. We are going home rested and at peace. Everything was wonderful. God Bless.
    Dave and Alaina of Kalispell, Montana

  • Lovely room. Fantastic breakfast. Friendly hosts!
    Mike and Cathy Vick of Upland, California

  • There is not a rating system to give Denise & Cary the # of stars for what we experienced with them at their beautiful, lakeside home. From the moment you arrive, you will see their attention to every detail. They are a multi-talented couple, who take customer service/satisfaction to "over the top" levels. CLEAN, comfortable, accommodations, with plush towels, everything first class here! Peace and quiet, in a tranquil setting. Breakfast, and table setting, you won't find at any other B/B, and you'll wish their standard was the "norm". Looking forward to returning for a longer stay! Thank you for being such gracious hosts!
    Rob and Cherie Eliz of Healdsburg, California

  • Thank you so much for our anniversary trip. You both thought of absolutely everything. The roses, balloons, and anniversary sign made our day! We loved our breakfast - the decor, and wooden blocks were very thoughtful. Thank you so very much for accommodating our dietary needs. We appreciate you and will definitely come back!
    Levi and Lauren of Prosser, Washington

  • Thank you both for providing my husband and I a quiet retreat and beautiful experience. It was picture perfect with every detail accounted for - even the full moon seemed to be orchestrated! We loved every minute, and can't wait to return!
    Mike and Nicole of Spokane, Washington

  • Thank you for the enchanting experience of this lakeside sanctuary. Every detail has been lovingly attended to in this special place. We shall return again!
    Wayne and Lauren of Woodland Hills, California

  • Thank you for a lovely stay - just simply perfect. Amazing breakfasts! Gracious hosts! Couldn't be better.
    John and Marilyn of Calgary, Alberta, Canada

  • Thank you so much for your hospitality and your attention to all the little details that make this a 6 star experience. I love the lake life, and this is the most perfect representation of it. We will be back.
    June and Ken of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

  • What a beautiful, romantic place this is! We so enjoyed our 36th Anniversary. Denise and Cary thought of everything. We were so pampered and found our stay so relaxing! Best B and B, ever!!
    Elaine and Kent of Seattle, Washington

  • A beautiful setting, gardener's delight on lovely lake. The room was wonderful, spacious and comfortable, stepping right out on the patio. Delicious and perfectly prepared breakfasts. Denise and Cary have thought of every possible detail. I cannot imagine why anyone would book at one of the local hotels! GREAT VALUE!
    Mimi and Tom of Pittsboro, North Carolina

  • What a wonderful place to spend "Canada's 150th Birthday!" Relaxing on our balcony and enjoying the view of the lake . . . certainly a little piece of "heaven on earth." Scenic walk to the Marina for dinner at Dish - good food and friendly service. Comfy bed with a view of the lake and fabulous breakfast; presentation was beautiful. Thank you, Denise and Cary; we hope to visit you again.
    Deb and Gary of Trail, British Columbia, Canada

  • What a hidden gem we stumbled upon. Thank you, Denise and Cary, for the wonderful hospitality. You have a beautiful property and keep it in pristine condition. Thank you for sharing this wonderful experience with us.
    Mark and Melissa of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

  • Thank you for everything. This was the last stop on our honeymoon, and you made it incredibly special for us. We will always remember our stay, and we are already looking forward to coming back again. The room, the ground, the food: everything was just perfect.
    Christine and Kern of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

  • As I sit on your dock, watching another beautiful sunrise, I am reflecting on our last two days' stay with you. You and Cary are absolutely amazing folks. Your calm, caring, attentive natures pour out to your guests. You made us feel so welcome and pampered. Thank you! Your property is gorgeous, your hospitality is unmatched, and your lake is inspired. As everyone has mentioned, you surpass any hotel, host/hostess. I want to also mention the peace and tranquility that is present here. There can be no price for that. Both are priceless. Thank you for sharing.
    Mark and Anne of Tallahassee, Florida

  • In one word . . . "Exceptional." Not only was your bed and breakfast a perfect setting, every touch from the moment we arrived was beyond expectation. This is definitely not a hotel experience, and the room, grounds and patio areas are pure delight. Breakfast was a real treat, and all the wonderful touches you provided for my daughter-in-law's Birthday Getaway were so thoughtful. We will be back, and even though a small part of me wants to keep this a secret, I will sing your praises to friends and family.
    Kim and Heidi of Spokane, Washington

  • This is the first time for us to stay at a Bed and Breakfast. We chose the best! We felt like royalty from the moment we came in the door. Your attention to every detail that could make your guests feel welcome was evident and present at every turn. From fresh flowers in the room and in the bathroom, to being served breakfast on the patio at a table set and decorated specifically for us, made us feel welcomed beyond anything we could have imagined. We will definitely return. Thank you for your hospitality!
    Warren and Debbie from St. Maries, Idaho

  • Denise and Cary have thought of absolutely everything. Their unbelievable attention to detail and gracious hospitality has made our first trip to Sandpoint, Idaho, a wonderful experience. Meg and I met at summer camp 45 years ago, and this gem of a property and experience was reminiscent of camp. Thank you for a wonderful time.
    Meg and Jim of Eagle, Idaho

  • You have fashioned an idyllic guest house experience worthy of the stunning natural surroundings. i.e. the best of both worlds! Numerous superlatives come to mind, but we'll remember most - and return for - your thoughtful hospitality, the artistry in all you do, the sensory opportunities (the flavors at breakfast, the sound of lapping water, the colors of flowers and art . . . we could go on!) Thank you for your vision, and its execution to a T!
    Rick and Judy of Ashland, Oregon

  • We have so enjoyed our stay with you. Your generous hospitality and incredibly beautiful property have made it a very special stay. The attention to detail in providing for the comfort of your guests has been amazing, and we have enjoyed the lovely breakfasts served each morning. Thank you very much for giving us such a great experience. We will be recommending you to family and friends who may be considering visiting this area.
    Steve and Dina of Sydney, Australia

  • Many thanks for another incredible stay! It was an anniversary to remember in many ways :) The food was amazing as usual! Always a pleasure! Anniversary # 1! We will be making this a tradition for sure! Thanks for everything! Truly the best B & B I have ever been to! With love,
    Lundy and Doug of South Lake Tahoe, California

  • This is our 1st trip to Sandpoint, but won't be the last - mostly to stay at this B & B. every detail is considered and addressed by Cary and Denise - the breakfast is amazing, the room and bathroom are furnished and stocked for comfort and luxury. We are on a 2 week car trip to 4 National Parks and through 5 States, and this stop will be memorable. We will be back to Suite #2 with its fabulous veranda where we spotted an eagle on 3 occasions.
    Bonnie and Steve of Salt Lake City, Utah

  • Thank you for an amazing experience! Everything was so fabulous. You made our 40th Wedding Anniversary such a pleasure. The attention to detail was so sweet and beautiful. You have such a gorgeous bed and breakfast. Thank you for sharing it. We hope to come again soon.
    Connie and John of Sandpoint, Idaho

  • We have stayed in B & Bs from Oregon to New York, from South Carolina to the San Juan Islands. The Estate on the Lake is by far the very best we have experienced. The serenity of the lake, the beauty of the grounds, and the luxury of the bed and breakfast has been a gift of peaceful rest and relaxation. Denise and Cary are gracious hosts who have tended to every detail, have provided luxurious amenities and special comforts that have made our stay nothing less than grand. The five star, three course breakfasts were exquisite and wonderfully presented. We leave with gratitude and anticipation of returning soon.
    Dan and Sarah of Rogue River, Oregon

  • Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful, magical space with us. We are so grateful. We have felt very cared for.
    Michelle and Roger of Friday Harbor, Washington

  • There is hardly anything we can add to our comments on our first visit of July, 2015 - except this felt even better! - The unique and creative aesthetics and comfort of the Estate - inside and out, the tranquility and beauty of the surroundings, and the graciousness and attention of our hosts, are truly remarkable and unparalleled in our experience! Were it possible, we would be here more often and stay longer! We hope you continue to prosper and that there will be room for us when we can return - Thank you
    Harvey and Ina of La Mesa, California

  • Thank you very much for sharing your beautiful home with us, for providing such comforts, and delicious gourmet breakfast and treats!! You allowed us the rest and relaxation we were so desperately needing and gave us abundances we were not expecting that allowed us to celebrate our 26th anniversary in style. Thank you so much!!!
    James and Heather of Viola, Idaho

  • We are sincerely grateful that God re-planted you up here! Sharing your "little piece of heaven" has been such a gift to us - you'll never know . . . Two lovely days and nights that brought peace. May your lives be enriched and blessed.
    Tricia and Jim of Spokane, Washington

  • Thank you!
    Dache and John of Post Falls, Idaho

  • I don't even know where to start! From the moment Denise greeted us at the front door, we felt so welcomed and so special. Denise and Cary are wonderful people with amazingly kind hearts. The grounds are beautiful and the views are spectacular! The attention to detail is like none I've ever experienced before - simply outstanding! Everything felt so luxurious yet still so personal. And the breakfast is DELICIOUS!! We felt like we were King and Queen for the weekend! We cannot wait to come back!! A million Thank You's to Denise and Cary for the amazing experience!
    Erin and Allen of Spokane, Washington

  • What can I say? This place was amazing. I had been ruined, and all other places that I stay will pale in comparison. From the moment we walked in we were transformed. From the thoughtful touches of flowers, themed breakfasts and amazing views, to the amenities like an unbelievable bed and sheets. My only complaint is that we are leaving. We miss this piece of paradise already. Thank you!!
    Drew of New Orleans, Louisiana
  • Leaving with a sad heart but a nurtured soul. Blown away by the beauty experienced here by you both. Thank you.
    AK of New Orleans, Louisiana

  • This is our second stay at Estate with Cary and Denise and it was a splendid way to celebrate our 35th Anniversary. If we could have ordered the weather, it couldn't have been any more lovely than these last 4 days. We extended our stay by another night. Couldn't pull ourselves away. Besides being wonderfully picturesque, the Estate is more than a typical B and B. Cary and Denise go out of their way to please their guests. Since it was our anniversary we were welcomed with banners, balloons, chocolates, and roses in our room. A special dessert for two was waiting in the refrigerator along with Haagen-Dazs ice cream. Yum! Denise suggested we bring dinner back to the Estate the last night we stayed, and she set up a beautiful dining table for us, al fresco. This type of special treatment is what brings us back here. We feel rested and thoroughly spoiled when we leave. Kudos, Cary and Denise.
    Steve and Marilyn of Deer Park, Washington

  • Very pleased with our stay!
    Can't wait to come back.

    Paul and Kayloni of Greenacres, Washington

  • Thank you both very much for a wonderful and memorable stay!
    Terri and Jerry of Reno, Nevada

  • What an amazing place! We stumbled upon this place and are so blessed we did. This has been by far the best experience we've had and such wonderful hospitality! Everything was well organized, easy to use, and the simple details you guys do is heartwarming. I felt so special on my birthday weekend! Thank you for making us feel like home and welcomed. We're looking at our calendars for our next trip already! I will be telling all of my friends and family about how perfect this little spot is! See you guys soon!
    Tim and Aubrey of Spokane, Washington

  • What a beautiful place you have here! This is our first B & B experience, but we certainly hope it will not be our last. Many, many thanks for your warm and gracious hospitality! Denise, you are the epitome of the lovely hostess, and Cary, you are an unparalleled chef! Thank you for making our 22nd Anniversary special, and may God bless you both.
    Rusty and Heather of Stillwater, Oklahoma

  • Wonderful, comfortable, quiet, amazing attention to every detail noticed and unseen! Impeccable and softly grand. We will be back!! We have nothing, absolutely nothing to complain about. We are walking away, feeling rested, relaxed and with peace. Thank you so much for an amazing experience!
    Mark and Sue of Kenmore, Washington

  • After your intro to our surroundings and after you mentioned you put in a 100 amp service for Tesla - we knew we were in for an unrivaled Tesla experience. We were not disappointed. Elegant, professional, caring, creative, classy - artful - we haven't even had breakfast yet - but know already you will always leave the world better than you found it. Carry on - with the love and joy here -
    Jan and Gene of Eureka, Montana

  • Thank you so much for making Dale's surprise weekend get-a-way so wonderful. We had never stayed at a B & B before, but when Phil and Lori told us about this one, and how wonderful you both are, we were excited to give it a try.
    We were not disappointed, the attention to detail, the above and beyond treatment, and the genuine friendliness are amazing and will not be forgotten. The room, the view, and the small touches go beyond what you would find in any hotel or resort. The breakfasts are unbelievable and need to be experienced. I would and I will recommend Estate On The Lake to everyone I know who wants a truly amazing and relaxing vacation. I know Dale and I will be back!!

    Dale and Ellen of Calmar, Alberta, Canada

  • This is my third visit, and there isn't enough room to describe how much I love this place. Denise and Cary keep setting the bar to unreachable levels for everyone else. Amazing.
    Phil and Lorena of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

  • It would be hard to image you could exceed the expectations created by such amazing referrals - but you have!
    Coming to Estate on the Lake B & B is an engaging experience. You feel so welcomed into your bed and breakfast and have the opportunity to experience it in so many ways - art, music, conversation and, of course, the beauty the setting provides.
    It will be our pleasure to return and continue the developing tradition of providing enthusiastic referrals!

    Joanne and Bill of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

  • What a gorgeous place! We have never stayed in such a comfortable and friendly environment! Your hospitality is beyond appreciated! The amenities you offer here are amazing - you think of everything . . . and the food is incredible!! We are so glad to have found this place and are thankful to have spent our 6th Anniversary here! We are grateful to folks like you - there needs to be more in this world! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
    Jodee and Marshall Prince of Sandpoint, Idaho

  • Absolutely wonderful. The room, the view, the property. The treats in the room and all the small details that were covered to make our stay so enjoyable. Thanks for making our 40th Wedding Anniversary a time we will always cherish. We definitely want to come back. The breakfast - absolutely wonderful. Your attention to detail is amazing. Thanks for a great stay.
    Dennis and Carol of Cranbrook, British Columbia, Canada

  • So glad we got to spend our 2nd Anniversary here! Thank you so much for making it special! This is truly a beautiful place, and we enjoyed every moment of it! The extra effort you put in for the anniversary decorations and gifts were much appreciated! We were truly blessed by you both! The room, extra amenities and breakfast were all amazing! Looking forward to coming back! Thanks so much!
    Phillip and Lea of Hayden, Idaho

  • We had a wonderful time. The attention to detail is amazing. The view is fantastic, the deer came around as well as the geese. Very comfortable room and bed. Such an amazing breakfast. We look forward to coming back.
    Kurt and Lisa from Texas

  • A thousand thank you's for making our First Anniversary so beautiful. From the scrumptious food, to the lovely conversations, our one night felt like an eternity of serenity. We will most definitely be coming to stay again! And for more than one night, too.
    Tyler and Claire of Chattaroy, Washington

  • We have enjoyed our stay of six days immensely. The accommodations are so comfortable, and the breakfasts are delicious with every care made to the smallest detail. What always steals our hearts, though, is the wildlife. From Suite 2‘s balcony, we saw swallows above, and I took spectacular pictures of a hailstorm on the lake, a magnificent sunrise, a group of very alert deer, and directing, honking geese on the dock. We also heard the mysterious, unearthly call of a loon. If you like nature, this is the place to be.
    JT and DT of Orange County, California

  • Your warm hospitality, thoughtfulness, creativeness, and elegance were such gifts to us during our "40th Anniversary" stay here at Estate On The Lake. All the details of our dining experience made us feel so special and certainly acknowledged how special and significant a 40 year anniversary for us truly is. As the Lord promises - you are blessed, to be a blessing to others. Thank you for richly blessing us!
    Ken and Sharon of Riverside, California

  • My anticipation getting to this special birthday getaway was met with warmth and graciousness from the moment we arrived. Damon said this is in his top all time surprises! Thank you for every little detail and all your hard work, thank you for sharing this little slice of heaven with folks needing to connect with each other and nature, and thank you for making Damon's birthday extra special! We look forward to seeing you both again!
    Diane and Damon of Spokane/Coeur d'Alene, Washington/Idaho

  • Thank you for making our 25th anniversary get-away such a pleasant one! All the special touches made it an extra-special stay. I will hang on to the memory of this beautiful view as long as I can! Thank you.
    Jenny and Barry of Spokane, Washington

  • Congratulations on your beautiful estate. Thank you for making us so welcome. So little time this time around. Love to be back to make use of all the amenities. Also, thank you for thinking about treating our world better, and going (TESLA) electric!
    Matthias and Susanne of Bellevue, Washington

  • Thank you for your hospitality and attention to detail. We loved being able to reconnect, relax and enjoy our 10th Anniversary in such a beautiful bed and breakfast and location. Thank you for all of the special touches you added to our room and dining table. Breakfast was amazing! Best omelet I've ever had!
    Ryan and Terah of Rathdrum, Idaho

  • Once again, you have created the most memorable "escape" for us with your beautiful bed and breakfast and welcoming hospitality. Thank you for creating a much-needed sanctuary for Kevin and I to reconnect and just "breathe." We will see you again soon.
    Kevin and Daisy, Nine Mile Falls, Washington

  • My beautiful wife and I found this place and this is our third stay. We love Sandpoint, and come here several times a year. If Denise and Cary don't have a room available, we just come for the day. We will not stay anyplace else! I've been in all the states and 14 countries. Never have I stayed in a nicer more customer friendly place. Denise and Cary treat you like family! We can't wait for our next trip to Sandpoint!
    Theresa and Rich of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

  • Thank you so much for making our 55th Anniversary so memorable! What a lovely suite - we enjoyed every "special detail" you both did to make our anniversary something to remember We were greeted by Denise with her incredible knowledge of how everything works in the suite. Then 7 deer arrived outside our window. The bed was so comfortable we needed a wake-up call! Cary's bacon (done to perfection), eggs, etc. were so good! Denise, we loved the extra touches. You both go the "extra mile." We are just sorry that we only had one night with you.
    John and Joyce of Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada

  • Thank you so much for making us feel so at home right from the start. We felt like royalty for the evening! We also enjoyed meeting another welcoming committee ( 8 - 9 deer) right outside the window!! Your place is definitely one we will highly recommend to all our friends and family who pass through this area :)
    Nani and Wyatt of Juneau, Alaska

  • This was the most relaxing, enjoyable stay we have experienced thus far in our journey together. From the deer outside our window, various birds to watch, incredible view, to the privacy we were afforded, we could not ask for more! The breakfasts were AMAZING! The beauty of this location takes our breath away! It was great to have towns nearby to visit and shop. Our walk to Verwolf Vista Park and then to the Marina was perfect. Most of all, the two of you made this vacation so special! We loved the attention to every detail and can tell you work very hard to make this place WONDERFUL! We will absolutely be back! Thank you!
    Rebekah and Jeremy of Spokane, Washington

  • Thanks so much for such an amazing getaway! Everything was perfect - such a peaceful setting, elegant accommodations, the private and cozy suite . . . Your attention to detail is outstanding. Breakfast was delicious - absolutely the best French Toast! (I'm going to have to steal the orange zest idea!) Our visit was in the snowy winter. Deer were nibbling outside our window. Views of the lake are stunning! Every detail was thought of even brushing off our snowy car.
    We're definitely recommending you to family and friends!

    Carolyn and Jhar of Rathdrum, Idaho

  • Our stay here exceeded every and all expectations we ever had. Denise and Cary made us feel very welcome and special for our anniversary. Not to mention breakfast was amazing, and they are fascinating people to talk to. We will be back!
    Sky and Paul of Post Falls, Idaho

  • Such amazing attention to detail! My wife and I were lucky to have found this place to celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary. Denise and Cary made us feel at home and yet pampered. The food was exemplary as well. Thank you for a wonderful and relaxing weekend!
    AJ and Amy of Post Falls, Idaho

  • What a wonderful and beautiful place. A great romantic getaway, even just for one night! This place is so peaceful and the owners are so wonderful and accommodating. They take great care of you! Not to mention the breakfast was absolutely to die for. The view is incredible and so peaceful and comfortable. We will be returning here for sure. After one baby and another on the way, this was the perfect set up for a night away to rejuvenate. Not to mention the cute little town and great food so close. We loved our stay here! Thank you for a wonderful and perfect experience.
    Hil and Quin of Idaho

  • What can we say but Thank You! Thank You! for an unbelievable time at your B and B. The room was so beautiful and all your extra touches to make my sister Becki's 60th birthday so special was greatly appreciated. Thank you for the delicious breakfast and extra touches for her birthday. Your love for music, art, and wood were a joy to share. Can't wait to tell others about this amazing place and our visit here. Thank you again.
    Becki of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, and Julie of Fresno, California

  • We so enjoyed our stay! Wonderful food, conversation - Denise and Cary are "Gems." God Bless You! We'll be Back!
    Rich and Sylvia of Kettle Falls, Washington

  • This was the best way to spend our 3 Year Anniversary! All the little decorations made us feel so special. This was my first time (Stephanie) staying in a B & B, and it was the best experience! The breakfast was so good I couldn't help but eat all of it. Wish they could make more meals. I'm sure they would be just as delicious! We can't wait to come back for our Honeymoon:) See you in May!
    Stephanie and Preston of Deer Park, Washington

  • Best romantic weekend ever! We had a belated Valentine's theme with beautiful roses everywhere. Denise was an excellent hostess who was kind and extremely thoughtful. She is very detailed-oriented and thinks of everything, even the subtleties. The bed is the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in! Breakfast was amazing and to die for! We appreciated how environmentally conscientious they are. The view is spectacular and great to wake up to, including the wildlife. We will definitely come back and recommend this Bed and Breakfast to friends and family.
    S and T of the State of Washington

  • We had an amazing, relaxing time, and Denise and her husband provided the best hospitality I have ever experienced! We had a wonderful time and plan on returning! Thank you so much!
    Olivia and Tyler of Spokane, Washington

  • Thank you for an outstanding and relaxing retreat! From the time we entered and viewed your "music room" entrance full of pianos, drums, guitars, etc, to the incredible views, it was nothing short of refreshing relaxation! We enjoyed getting to know you and were honored to spend time viewing Cary's woodworking masterpieces! Our journeys have so many similarities with yours. The breakfasts were truly a labor of love, a perfect balance of design, presentation, and tastes! And to get a free drum lesson out of it as well?? You knocked the ball out of the ballpark!
    Jim and Kathy of Ramona, California

  • Cary and Denise were the epitome of thoughtful and generous hosts. No detail was overlooked. We had such a lovely weekend enjoying their beautiful bed and breakfast - the lake views, deliciously comfortable bed, amazing breakfasts, and superb hospitality. Thank you so very much for sharing with us.
    Nik and Alaina of Seattle, Washington

  • Thank you, Denise and Cary, for your warm hospitality and for making our stay so memorable. This is our fourth time here together, and each time is unbelievable! We will be back soon; we absolutely love it here.
    Jenny and Eric of Seattle, Washington

  • A last-minute decision to jump in on a friend's trip to Sandpoint was a decision I didn't regret. Denise and Cary were beyond welcoming and every component of their bed and breakfast experience added up to a relaxing weekend. They were kind enough to let us use some of their instruments and we spent a lot of the weekend enjoying their fairy-tale music room. The bedrooms were outstanding, the meals delicious, and every detail carefully thought out and executed. Thank you so much for your hospitality!
    NW of Seattle, Washington

  • What an amazing weekend! From the moment we walked in, we felt so welcomed and pampered. Denise and Cary made us feel right at home. They went above and beyond to make us feel special and cared for. This will be a weekend the husband-to-be and I will remember and cherish for the rest of our days. Thank you for everything!
    Emily and Jimmy of Spokane, Washington

  • This was my second stay at Estate On The Lake, the first being in the fall of 2012, and the experience never ceases to amaze me. Denise and Cary's attention to detail and care for their guests is simply world class. The only downside is when the time comes to inevitably say goodbyes. I hope to come back and stay again. Of all the highlights of the stay (jamming in the music room, skiing at Schweitzer, sharing company with Denise and Cary), my favorite has to be breakfast. Cary, you make the meanest scrambled eggs I have ever tasted. You are two of the most gracious people I have ever met. Thank you so much.
    Eddie of Seattle, Washington

  • We were so blown away by our experience here at Estate on the Lake - truly one of a kind place to stay. It felt so luxurious, yet so comfortable and "homey." Denise and Cary go above and beyond to make the stay here truly wonderful. All the details were just spectacular, and they give just the right balance of personal space and friendly conversation. We are so thankful for such a wonderful stay here! Thank you so very much!
    Abby and Tyler of Spokane, Washington

  • What a special place to bring in the New year! We truly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful bed and breakfast. The hospitality was warm and sincere. The breakfast was amazing. Thanks very much.
    Earl and Leona of Gig Harbor, Washington

  • Thank you for helping to put together such an amazing surprise 40th Birthday for me! With friends and family from out of town, it could not have been more amazing! As always, the B and B was amazing! Great food and such special details! Thank you! We will be back!
    Aaron and Patrick of Spokane, Washington

  • This is our second stay in this suite and it just gets better. Really appreciate the attention to detail vis-a-vis quiet and comfort in the room. Best breakfasts we've had anywhere all year! Great way to end the year! We'll be back in July again. Thanks!
    Rick and Lynne of Tucson, Arizona

  • Unbelievable place! Beautiful, serene, and peaceful. Also the best breakfast I've had all year! Can't recommend this B & B highly enough.

  • If you want to experience the best in staying at B & Bs, come to Denise and Cary's "Estate." The ultimate in luxury, food, service: every need and detail has been thought of. Denise and Cary are two of the nicest people you would ever want to meet. Highly Recommended - - you will not find a better place to stay. Thank you for a wonderful time!
    Don and Diann of Rathdrum, Idaho

  • Thank you for allowing us to share our Anniversary at your lovely bed and breakfast. Your special touches were much appreciated! We look forward to another visit to spend more time !! The breakfast was incomparable!! You have thought of all the details.
    John and Kathy of Tri-Cities, Washington

  • Thank you for your gracious hospitality. We felt like we were in a Christmas Fairytale! What a beautiful place and amazing food . . . oh, and the views! One of the best Christmases spent with my husband and friends!
    Tereza and Matt of Spokane, Washington

  • We had an amazing experience and stay in Suite 1. The food and meals were incredible. We look forward to coming back soon. Thank you so much for the amazing hospitality and unforgettable experience.
    C and Y of Manhattan Beach, California

  • Such an amazing, relaxing time my husband and I shared during our winter getaway. The room was wonderful with open windows to the beautiful ice covered lake. The Jacuzzi tub was an amazing way to relax each evening! The 3 course homemade breakfasts were absolutely delicious. Cary and Denise made us feel special and pampered. My husband also loved getting a drum lesson from Cary. We look forward to our next chance to come back and will be sharing this gem with our friends! Thank you so much for letting us share this beautiful place!
    Anna and Brent of Spokane, Washington

  • What a wonderful, fun experience it has been to stay with you these 3 nights! I sit here looking out over the frozen lake and feel very fortunate to have met you both as well as to have experienced your hospitality. We have stayed at many Bed and Breakfasts though the years, and with very few exceptions, the hosts have been very accommodating, but you two "take the cake!" The attention to detail we have seen everywhere, the view, comfortable temperature of the suite, excellent shower and Jacuzzi, marvelous mattress all provided a level of comfort unmatched by any other Bed and Breakfast experience. The breakfasts require pages to describe - very unique and delicious - seem inadequate. Superb! Thank you so much!
    Pam and Bob of Hamilton, Montana

  • The beautiful room and delicious breakfasts were beyond compare, but on top of that the special touches and many little details we happily enjoyed throughout the day and every day. There was always a special little something to appreciate! The antique furniture was just beautiful, and Andre was completely at home with Cary's "tech-y" things. I will cherish the tips on cooking hash browns that Cary so generously shared. (It takes a lot of time and work to get a good recipe!) We graciously thank you both for a time to always remember. Thank you for all your time introducing us to such a beautiful area.
    Jeniece and Andre of Dayton, Maryland

  • Thank you so much for allowing us into your beautiful home. We not only felt welcomed, but as if we were home away from home. Every extra detail you put into our room to our breakfast was amazing. Thank you so much, and God Bless.
    Calvin and Casey of Otis Orchards, Washington

  • Thank you so much. Our stay was all and more than hoped for. Waking in Suite 1 to the gorgeous view was so relaxing and the tub so rejuvenating. Homemade 3 course breakfast was delightful. We'd recommend the stay at Estate on the Lake any time of year! Great Value! Warm thanks,
    Jenna and Joshua of Ojai, California

  • Another sublime experience to cherish - in each unfolding moment, pleasure, and conversation and looking back, in remembrance. In the words of the Bard; "Thanks, thanks, and ever thanks!"
    With gratitude and affection, Laurie and Bill of Deer Park, Washington

  • Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful bed and breakfast with us. We have never had an experience like this! We appreciate all the care you put into running this B & B. We felt so taken care of, actually spoiled! It was great getting to know you and Cary as well. You are both such wonderful and warm people and we are so grateful to have had this experience with you. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much.
    Alisha and Shawn of Bozeman, Montana

  • I feel very special with all the special touches on food and decor. It was splendid waking up to see the sun rising over the lake. I don't normally like to wake up, but the slow light gradually lighting up the window was a real delight. Very peaceful and quiet, just what I was looking for in a little soul healing. Thank you Denise and Cary.
    Norine of Spokane, Washington

  • If only we had known about this magnificent, peaceful place sooner! Thank you for pampering us in your personalized and professional way. We have never had a more delightful experience ANYWHERE! We can't wait to look for an excuse to return. {R & R at its finest.} P.S. The French toast was impeccably divine.
    Ken and Tiara of Lewiston, Idaho

  • Thank you so much for your outstanding hospitality! Your B & B is beautiful - full of incredible art, antiques, musical instruments (& one FANTASTIC DRUM TEACHER! - thx, Cary) & clearly the views are unmatched! You have created a one of a kind B & B! We knew we liked Sandpoint - but you helped clinch our decision to get out of California!! Thank you so much!
    Leigh and Stu of Carlsbad, California

  • It is early November and the leaves on the trees are finishing turning bright gold, red, and orange. We saw flotillas of migratory birds on the lake every day: buffleheads, merganzers, ring-necked ducks, coots, mallards, redheads, wigeons, harlequins, and grebes. Tundra swans are due next week. Not only that, there were EAGLES overhead now and again. This morning eight Canadian geese swam in and landed on the beach at this bed and breakfast. What a wonder! After a delicious breakfast, you can sit inside by the fireplace, luxuriously warm and cozy, enjoying lakefront views of waterfowl. We’ll certainly come again!
    Dori of Garden Grove, California

  • The best B + B that I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. The food was great and the service impeccable. I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone.
    Marshall William of Irvine, California

  • Thank you for making our girls' getaway so relaxing and special! Your attention to detail and hospitality was bar none. We looked forward to your scrumptious breakfasts and slept so soundly. Waking up to sunrise and the sound of the waves will stay in my heart for the weeks to come. Thank you for everything you did for us.
    Heidi of Bozeman, Montana

  • Thank you for your wonderful hospitality and taking such good care of us. Everything about this B and B is absolutely perfect. I will be back! The view is unreal! It was a relaxing weekend and such a peaceful setting. Thank you for spoiling us!
    Sara of Portland, Oregon

  • Thank you so much for taking care of every detail so perfectly! Our girls' weekend was perfect, largely due to all that you offer here.
    We will highly recommend you to all our friends and family, and I'll be posting photos and details of our trip on Facebook for all of our friends to see as well.

    Rikki of Grants Pass, Oregon

  • Thank you so much for such a wonderful weekend! Everything was exactly as I was hoping. You clearly love doing what you do, and you convey that to your guests through your warmth and generosity. I can't wait to bring my family back next year.
    Shelley of West Linn, Oregon

  • Wow. We were sooo blessed. The extra care. The attention to detail. This is a special place, and the owners have created an ambiance that captures moments in time, making them treasures.
    Tina and Michael of Ponderay, Idaho

  • Purple Water hand soap, the most delicious pancakes I've ever had, imported oranges from Australia, Pain au chocolat light and tasty... owners of this memorable B&B, Cary and Denise, invest hours upon hours researching and attempting to perfect item and service at their practice. I hope you enjoy your stay; my wife and I created some fond memories.
    Josh and Amy of Spokane, Washington

  • What a wonderful bed and breakfast with the very best hospitality! We could not have asked or wished for a better stay. The breakfast was phenomenal, and all the added decorations and touches made an early birthday celebration so special. Thank you for all you did; it was much appreciated.
    Paul and Alix of Spokane, Washington

  • We found a gem when we came here; everything was wonderful! The owners are warm and friendly, our suite was amazing with a spectacular view. We had a 3 course breakfast that was beyond compare. We would recommend this to anyone! Thank you for everything.
    Terry and Joyce of Lake Hauser, Idaho

  • Tranquility and beauty in every direction. Incredibly welcomed from our first step on the property. Unbelievable attention to every detail, but never oppressive. Your hospitality just pulls us in with a big North Idaho hug. Thanks.
    Mike and Cari Jean of Montana/Idaho

  • You've definitely given us a reason to try more B & Bs in the future. However, you've set the bar very high! Thank you for making our 4 year anniversary so special. Your attention to detail and all of the thought that was put into decorating the room made us feel very special! Also, the food was amazing! Thank you.
    Josh and Katie of Spokane, Washington

  • Your pampering of guests is second to none. We thoroughly enjoyed your hospitality and the ambience at Estate on the Lake. We couldn't have asked for a better "first time experience" stay at a B & B. The special happy birthday touches were very sweet and truly appreciated.
    Laura and Michael of Spokane, Washington

  • Thank you for your hospitality and for sharing your bed and breakfast! Our rooms were spectacular, as were the service and breakfast!! We were cozy and warm in the rainy weather - it was the perfect setting for a chilly fall day, complete with the fireplace!
    We love the lake view - to see the fog and rain over the lake was very special. Living in the desert we don't often get to experience the beauty of rain - plus we had patches of bright sunshine! We were blessed with all the experiences here!

    Steve and Kathy, Tucson, Arizona

  • Absolutely spectacular! The views, the beautiful grounds, the attention to details -all unrivaled. We had an amazing stay - and Denise and Cary are wonderful people. We would recommend this gorgeous place in a heartbeat and hope we have the opportunity to return soon!
    Brett and Sandy, Laguna Niguel, California

  • What a bit of paradise you have here! You had to have spent a great deal of time and effort to make it so special. I feel so privileged to experience your hard work. It has been delightful for me to meet you both and experience your bed and breakfast and hospitality. It has been such a wonderful experience. Thanks for making my visit to Sandpoint so rewarding.
    Mary of Del Mar, California

  • Absolutely spectacular! The views, the beautiful grounds, the attention to details - all unrivaled. We had an amazing stay - And Denise and Cary are wonderful people. We would recommend this gorgeous place in a heartbeat and hope we have the opportunity to return soon!
    Brett and Sandy of Laguna Niguel, California

  • We could not have chosen a better place to celebrate our 35th Anniversary. Thank you for making our stay so memorable. Your attention to detail, from the roses in the room to the beautiful place settings at the amazing 3-course breakfasts was astounding. We enjoyed the views of the lake, the artwork, and the conversations! Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing stay.
    Dan and Sharon of Pasadena, Maryland

  • This is the first Bed and Breakfast we have ever stayed in, and we are so impressed! You have thought of absolutely everything, the room and grounds are beautiful, and the service is amazing! Not to mention we were served the most delicious breakfast we've ever eaten. Thank you so much for all the effort you've put into making our stay luxurious and comfortable; it has made this such a wonderful first anniversary celebration. We will definitely plan on staying again in the future! Thank you!
    Justin and Rachel of Spokane, Washington

  • My husband and I arrived here the eve of our wedding. It was nothing but amazing and beautiful. Great hospitality, beautiful room, great amenities and super comfortable bed. The view was outstanding. We came down to a beautiful breakfast and great service. They are the sweetest! Cary's breakfast was so delicious. We cannot wait to come back for our one year, and stay in one of the other rooms! Best wedding night ever!
    Mr. and Mrs. Z of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

  • We are so glad we picked this B and B to celebrate our 10 year anniversary! Such gracious hospitality! Amazing gourmet breakfast! I enjoyed all the detail and care given in presentation of the food - it made me feel very special. Most comfortable bed I've been in away from home. We loved the peaceful ambiance, the serene lake views, and the mix of elegance with homey comfort. Wish we could stay longer to enjoy more of the grounds and being in a restful place. We also appreciated the cleanliness of the room! Thanks for a great stay!
    Stefani and Jason of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

  • Words cannot express the joy, peacefulness, and special treatment we received from Denise and Cary. My wife said this is by far the best Birthday she has ever had. It definitely was way above our expectations. I'm not sure we'll ever enjoy another B and B after staying here. We are spoiled now.
    Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay for my Birthday and for making it so special; you both went above and beyond our expectations. The suite was lovely, and so comfy. You are a wonderful host and I thank you for you hospitality. We "WILL" be back. P. S. Oh my gosh, the food was fantastic!!

    Ken and Dottie of Spokane, Washington

  • Fabulous! We loved our stay! Loved the service! Both of you are amazing for all you do to make it nice and comfortable for all. Thanks for all the extra little services you did for us as well, like, the birthday stuff, the reservations, and the extra jelly jars :) Thank you much for a fabulous stay!
    Aaron and Anna of Deer Park, Washington

  • We spent our 31st Anniversary here and really cherished the time. The hosts made it very special for us with lots of small touches. We especially liked the privacy, the view of the lake, and the grounds. It was a great escape for us. Many thanks for a wonderful two nights.
    Patch and Rayleen of Spokane, Washington

  • It's been a lovely three nights stay, and we cannot say enough about your hospitality and the outstanding views from both Suites #4 and #2, especially the balcony of Suite 2 where we could sit and enjoy the sights and listen to the water lapping the shore, and all of your beautiful roses with such wonderful fragrances. We are sorry to be leaving, but will have many enjoyable memories of your piece of paradise.
    Bobby and Martha of Arcadia, California

  • With some 40 years of travel, throughout the U. S. and Canada, Estate On The Lake has been the singular best B & B we have ever experienced. The attention to detail is phenomenal! Everything from artwork to furniture to technology is wonderful. Location, Location, Location - can't be beat. We especially appreciate the cleanliness. The music room with drums and guitars add a very special touch - never seen before in a B & B. All of this coupled with a great breakfast and first in class hospitality made this stay so memorable.
    Ron and Yulanda of New Jersey

  • Thanks for being so understanding when we got our nights wrong, Sept. 25-27, instead of Sept. 26-28! You have a lovely place and we liked Suite 2 - especially the balcony overlooking the lake - a visual delight!
    Marshall and Pat of Issaquah, Washington

  • Thank you for making our anniversary so special. You really have thought of everything and go above and beyond with all the details and special touches. You made us feel so important, and we have never been treated so well. Everything was amazing from start to finish. Thank you!!
    Steve and Amanda of Spokane, Washington

  • No words can clearly relay our gratitude. Our stay was fantastic. We did relax on the boat dock and enjoyed the scenery and the solitude. Watching a sweet movie was also a wonderful feature of our room. Having a private breakfast is the most amazing treat! The part that makes us uneasy at other B&B's is being seated with other people we don't know. We are anxious to come back . . . Perhaps this winter... primarily because we don't want to wait any longer!
    Ryan and Laura of Rathdrum, Idaho

  • Thank you for an amazing stay! Everything was so perfect that we are afraid to try any other B & Bs! Your special "touches" are everywhere from the remote control station, to the Ralph Lauren towels on a heated rack, to the fresh flowers throughout . . . the list goes on! Breakfast was simply "to-die-for," and having it served in our room was wonderful. Thank you again . . . and we will definitely see you again!
    Kris and Melody of Pomeroy, Washington

  • They embellished our room and breakfast table with anniversary wishes including red roses everywhere. Gourmet breakfasts were amazing. Our room was cozy but luxurious and the balcony view sensational. Absolutely wonderful experience.
    Jim and Alison of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

  • Denise and Cary have created the most inviting and beautiful surroundings for a unique B & B that we could ever have imagined to stay at for our 49th Anniversary. They are very creative, loving, and intellectually stimulating people. Their attention to details and their guests' comfort was amazing. I want to come back again. I felt so pampered (actually, both of us)! The breakfasts were out of this world! Cary is the master of the food while Denise puts her magic touch on All the details of your visit. We just fell in love with them and their little piece of Heaven. The views are gorgeous!
    John and Marcie of Spokane Area, Washington

  • What a gorgeous place to spend a few days! We enjoyed our stay so much, with so many comforts plus all the extras - the artwork and roses are stunning! AND the musical instruments add such a warm touch! Thanks so much - you do a fabulous job of making guests feel welcome. We hope we can join you for a ski holiday!
    Theresa and Bob of Calgary, Alberta, Canada

  • This was our first Bed and Breakfast experience, and it was lovely! We loved sitting on the dock, relaxing on the balcony, enjoying the sound of the water, and sipping coffee. You've thought of everything! Thank you for the most excellent stay, hospitality, and warmth! Awesome Breakfast, too! I think it's the best breakfast in Sandpoint!
    Ian David and Emily of Seattle, Washington

  • Wonderful experience! Loving care and artfully designed home, rooms, and food! Thank you, Cary and Denise.
    P.S. Cary is a marvelous sculptor and teacher - your overview inspired my work! Gracias!

    Pru and Fred of Tiburon, California

  • Many thanks for your gracious hospitality and making me feel so welcomed in your bed and breakfast. After 36 years away from my former home in Bonner County, my stay at the Estate on the Lake was a perfect re-introduction. You were wonderful hosts to anticipate every need I might have. The breakfast was a feast, elegantly plated and presented with attention to every detail. Thank you!
    Mary of Gold River, California

  • It has been 25 years since I have stayed at a B and B. It was worth the wait! Frank says it boils down to two words: SOPHISICATED ELEGANCE. It's a lovely stay with lovely hosts. PICTURESQUE, SERENE, SUPERB!
    Mary of Whitefish, Montana

  • Thank you for your wonderful hospitality, our gorgeous suite, and the over-the-top breakfast. We will be sure to tell all our friends and family about your beautiful B & B.
    Jennie and John of Novato, California

  • We are blessed to have had the opportunity to stay in the Lakefront Suite #1, and wish we could stay for more than one night! Your space offers luxury, tranquility, and restorative power to those in need - including tired parents! Thank you for your hospitality - we highly recommend your B & B!
    Amanda and Steve Rochester, MN

  • Luxurius bedroom and bathroom, gorgeous view of the lake, beautiful surroundings, fabulous breakfast, and wonderfully accommodating hosts, Denise and Cary. We will definitely return on our next trip to Sandpoint. Thank you.
    Steve and Amanda of Rochester, Minnesota

  • Thank you, Denise and Cary; your bed and breakfast and location is breathtaking. We feel very fortunate to be able to share it for an evening/day. Your attention to detail is unmatched and appreciated. We look forward to visiting again next summer for a longer time period.
    Steve and Cherie of Bend, Oregon

  • 47th Anniversary. Thank you so much for your hospitality during our stay with you. Our conversations were a joy as well as informative. We learned much from you. Your breakfasts were amazing in taste and presentation Judi said they were "a taste sensation." I'll say a "culinary delight." Thank you for the special attention you paid to our 47th anniversary celebration. It will be most memorable until we return for the next one.
    Dan and Judi of Yakima, Washington

  • We are very sad . . . Let me explain . . .
    1) ALL other B & Bs have been ruined forever . . .
    2) We can never eat breakfast again as yours is the Best we've ever eaten . . .
    3) We will never again sleep as well - waves lapping on shore - bed is heaven . . .
    4) Scenery is breathtaking - nothing else will compare . . .
    5) Hospitality and attention to detail from Cary and Denise cannot be matched . . .
    In short, you have set the bar so high it can never be achieved by any other B & Bs!! We can no longer travel to anywhere but "Estate On The Lake" because if we go elsewhere, we will be disappointed. You have ruined all our future travel plans . . . so sad. We'll be back!

    Bill and Jenn of Denver, Colorado

  • Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend. Your personal touches to make our stay enjoyable were amazing, and so much appreciated. From the decorations related to our 15th Wedding Anniversary in the room, to the little decorative touches on the breakfast table, your care for your guests is unsurpassed. We thoroughly enjoyed breakfast on the patio. The food was incredible! Thanks to Cary for the wonderful food. You have a beautiful location on the lake; thank you for sharing it with us, and making our stay enjoyable.
    Doug and Sarah of Spokane, Washington

  • Thanks for sharing part of your lives with Deanna and I. It feels so good to leave behind the business of our every day responsibilities and come here for some serious R & R. You make us feel like family. Thanks for taking good care of my pond and froggy.
    Monte and Deanne of Mt. Hope, Washington

  • Wow! What a slice of Paradise! The hospitality and attention to every little detail that Denise and Cary provided made my 50th Birthday celebration a new favorite memory. We were made to feel welcomed and special from the moment we stepped through the door. I felt like a "Birthday Princess!" The grounds are just beautiful and perfect for wandering or relaxing. The room so luxurious and comfortable! And, oh . . . the 3 course Breakfast was deliciously amazing! Just, Wow!
    John and Susan of Hayden, Idaho

  • We are not B & B people. So what do we do now, after having started at the top? Here is what we experienced and loved: the beauty and tranquility of the Estate - Peaceful. Everything, from facility to service, is marked by excellence. The words, "Good Enough," are never uttered by the hosts - exquisite attention to detail. Cary and Denise are clearly guided by values, two of which are gentle respect for the privacy and dignity of their guests, although warm and engaging as hosts, delightful conversationalists (well versed and experienced on a variety of topics), they take care to honor personal space - respectful. Breakfasts are phenomenal. No detail is too small to receive attention - delicious! Our desire for contemplative rest has been satisfied.
    Randall and Barbara of Carlisle, Iowa

  • A huge thank-you for the lovely accommodations and beautiful scenery in which to spend a night celebrating our 50th anniversary of our honeymoon - way back in 1966! Felt really spoiled and special. Thank you for your gracious hospitality. The delightful breakfast was delicious and way past elegant! Can we make reservations for our 55th?
    Doug and Karen of Ridgeway, Wyoming

  • Over many years of travelling all over our country (UK), Europe, and USA, your Guest House is without doubt the "BEST" B & B we have stayed at. I knew when I first did a search (in DuckDuckGo) and that photo of your bed and breakfast came up on the home page, I did not look for anything else. WE BOTH KNEW this is the one. We are not disappointed, in fact, as soon as you opened the front door, I said to myself "WOW!!" Everything about your B & B is "First Class, yet still homey. It was lovely to talk to you both about each other's countries. And so to "Breakfast" - or should I say the feast "of the morning." Denise prepared the table with 40th Anniversary decorations. Cary's cooking and all the preparation and attention to detail makes this an Extra Special B and B. We want to thank you both so much for making our stay such a special time. "Diolch Yn Fawr Iawn" (Thank you very much.)
    Marilyn and Athol from Wales in the UK

  • Whoa - What a find - A gem for sure - We can't wait to return and bring two couples so we can have an experience they won't believe. Godiva chocolates at bedtime, yummy choices of coffee and or tea in the a.m., followed by a breakfast that would make Emeril Lagasse feel second best! The views, the extras, the amenities and above all two wonderful people - we return as much to see them as we do for another Estate On The Lake Experience. Thank you, Denise and Cary. It was Grand ! ! !
    Dan and Marie of Darby, Montana

  • Amazing! Beautiful! Relaxing! Luxurious! Your Bed & Breakfast is the most wonderful one that we have ever experienced! Waking up to the sunrise over the lake from the most comfortable bed, ever, was so amazing. You have thought of everything and then some . . . The amenities are fabulous and go beyond those found at 5-Star Resorts. And the artwork!! Cary is extremely talented. I love the unique perspective on "Mother and Child" in our room. You are very special people with kind and caring hearts. Thank you!
    Ron and Sharlie of Scottsdale, Arizona

  • What a blessing it is to experience such beautiful people as Denise & Cary. Our stay was so comfortable and quiet. This was our first B & B experience and it has been over the top. Your breakfast is a word, incredible! Morning sunrise on the lake surrounded by God's glory, speechless. Thank you both for a wonderful stay. We promise we'll be back.
    R.L. & DeDe of Havre, Montana

  • This was the most beautiful experience I've ever had . . . Loved every detail. Delightful hosts! Perfect setting. We'll be back next year. Thank you!
    David and Christine of Spokane, Washington

  • Chuck and I truly enjoyed our visit to your B and B! The Lake is beautiful and only surpassed by the Estate itself! Your passion and effort are evident. Thank you!
    Barbara of Newfoundland and Charles of Alberta, Canada

  • Your B & B was the perfect last stop of our western vacation. We immediately felt at ease with our warm and thoughtful hosts. Cary's breakfasts were superb, the accommodations excellent and a million dollar view from the bedroom was breathtaking. As we continue on our travels home we will do so with warm memories of our time spent at the Estate on The Lake.
    Tom & Crystal of Columbus, Ohio

  • Thank you for the lovely stay!
    Eric and Lea of Seattle, Washington

  • This place is gorgeous, and the care you put into every detail made our stay here truly magical. We enjoyed every minute. Thank you for helping us celebrate our 10th anniversary in such a special way, and we will definitely be back again!
    Chad and Cara of Post Falls, Idaho

  • Our 18th anniversary was incredible thanks to my wonderful husband surprising me with a stay here. You guys have a beautiful B & B at an amazing location. The suite with the balcony has breathtaking views of the lake and provided an incredible view of the sunrise. The incredible attention to detail and all the little extras you do truly make your place stand out (decorations, special desert, garden tomatoes). The breakfast was amazing, as was eating on the patio with a view of the lake. Thank you for making our celebration so memorable. We will be back!
    Patrick and Aaron of Spokane, Washington

  • Fantastic view to start! One day/night was not enough. The "Estate On The Lake" is the best B & B we have stayed at. The attention to detail was amazing, and we loved it. Cary and Denise were fantastic hosts - not to mention great cooks. The food was great. This B and B is on our list to do again!!
    Brad and Lynnette of Clayton, California

  • 43rd Anniversary. We are replete with pleasures! Soulful whimsy and elegance, warmth and intelligence graced every aspect of our stay. We've enjoyed many B & Bs over the years; this is the ultimate!
    P.S. Having relished the scenic "chair crawl," my favorite seat is the feasting chair at the patio table. Sublime fare, delightful tablescapes, incomparable view and hosts. Loved every detail and every minute of our stay.

    Laurie and Bill of Deer Park, Washington

  • Thank you for making our anniversary so special - it is one we won't forget! Breakfast was perfect; and such a peaceful view!
    Kris and Kelli of Sandpoint, ID

  • Came here for our 25th wedding anniversary. We had a lovely time. The view and location are wonderful. The breakfast was amazing. But it's the owners that stand out. They are fabulous and made our stay so very special. Thank you.
    Tracey and Gregg of Spokane, Washington

  • We had a fabulous time in your beautiful B & B! We can't thank you enough. We felt so at home and comfortable! Enjoyed the outdoor beauty, enjoyed the perfect breakfast, enjoyed the conversation with the two of you! Thank you, thank you.
    John and Rebecca of Mandeville, Louisiana

  • Thanks for making our trip to Idaho very special. Just wish we could have had more time to stay. Your bed and breakfast and the setting is beautiful.

    My turn now ... how pampered we feel from our stay. Your bed and breakfast is the most relaxing place we have ever stayed. The breakfast was delicious!!! We loved meeting "y'all" and if you ever want to come south in the winter - we would love for you to stay with us. We will make you two feel special as we can in Arkansas. Thank you for everything.
    Cecil and Jeanne of Bauxite, Arkansas

  • Staying in this beautiful and comfortable B & B was an extra-ordinary experience. Denise and Cary have thought of everything their guests might want, and then provided that in an elegant and gracious way. Cary's breakfasts are truly memorable - delicious would be an understatement.
    Carole and Wayne of Medford, Oregon

  • My husband and I just spent our 3rd visit with Denise and Cary at the extraordinary Estate On The Lake. We were recently married in South Carolina and coming back to Estate On The Lake this time after our marriage was like coming home. This will always be our special anniversary gift to each other.
    Estate On The Lake is so very unique. We have stayed in wonderful, deluxe, upscale, Bed and Breakfast homes, however, there is something so special, so magnetic, so comforting, peaceful and yet extremely elegant about this magical place. The view of the lake in every room is just perfect. The rooms are inviting, welcoming, so cozy, and they are filled with every amenity you would need......just amazing! They are the cleanest rooms I have stayed in.
    I must also mention the 5 star breakfast that awaits you each morning. You simply have to see it to appreciate the time and care it took to create such a magnificent meal. Each time we visit Estate On The Lake, it seems to get even better in every way. And Denise and Cary are caring, truly wonderful people whose great desire is to make their visitors comfortable and 'tended to' in such a perfect and yet comfortable way.
    We can't wait to visit again in April, 2017!

    Jackie and Philip of Marylhurst, Oregon

  • There are not adequate words to describe our stay in this glorious place! Every detail was attended to. We wanted for nothing, and have never been made to feel more special. You celebrated our 15th anniversary with such attention and delight. It has been the best get-away we've ever had! The manner in which you individualized our stay by searching for delectable gluten-free alternatives for me was over and above any of our wildest expectations. Your love of people, inviting atmosphere, and attention to detail set The Estate on the Lake apart in a class above any other.
    Jeremy and Gretchen of Yakima, Washington

  • Estate On the Lake is the best B & B we have ever stayed at. The room was spacious, the lake-view from our private balcony was superb, and the 3-course breakfasts were truly excellent. Denise and Cary put a lot of effort into crafting a wonderful experience for us, and we are so grateful! We look forward to returning to this paradise in North Idaho!
    Matt and Karen of San Diego, California

  • What a beautiful way to spend our honeymoon! You were both so sweet and hospitable. Thank you so much for all you did. The food was absolutely amazing! Although our stay was short, it was such a fantastic way to get away and slow down for awhile. Thank you so much for your graciousness. We so appreciate it! We will definitely be coming back and recommending your beautiful Bed and Breakfast to our friends!
    Jonathan and Jordan of Troy, Montana

  • We so enjoyed our stay here in your beautiful B & B. Your attention to detail did not go unnoticed in the suites and in the delicious breakfasts that were served each morning. Your gracious hospitality was very much appreciated. We look forward to coming back and visiting you again.
    Marty and Beckie of Granite Bay, California

  • What an incredible sanctuary you have here. We are so grateful that you would share it with us. Our stay was absolutely delightful. The grounds are lovely with all the little sitting areas; the view is just a little bit of heaven, and the room was more than we could have hoped for: quiet, comfortable, elegant. You have a treasure here. This was our first stay at a B and B, and we have been spoiled. Your hospitality made us feel so special, the food was absolutely delicious. Our 37th wedding anniversary celebration will be remembered fondly with all the special chocolates, cake, confetti, roses, and decorations. We have been blessed. Thank you!
    Mike and Kathy of Spokane, Washington

  • So much more than a B & B! This was an extraordinary experience. More like an elegant inn with special attention to every detail.
    Carol of Tucson, Arizona
    Thanks for so many thoughtful and comfortable places to sit and enjoy the surroundings. You did so many things to help us feel special!
    David of Tucson, Arizona

  • Thank you for a wonderful two night stay at your beautiful Estate on the Lake. Your lakeside setting is spectacular - we felt like we were staying on the shores of Lake Como! Breakfast on your lovely terrace was truly delicious each morning. Our room was immaculately clean. You are very warm and helpful hosts. We will return!
    Marilyn and Ernie of San Diego, California

  • Thank you! You treated us with such care and detail. Your bed and breakfast far surpassed our expectation! Your time to show us around was a wonderful time. May the Lord bless your bed and breakfast and all He puts in your hand to do.
    Moy and Laura of Corvallis (Heart of the Valley), Oregon

  • This is our second stay at your beautiful B &B . . . last year for our 25th and this year our 26th Anniversary. This is more than your average B & B. It is an absolutely beautiful location with a perfect view. The attention to detail is above and beyond. The breakfast the best omelette in the world. The table decor is lovely and so special for our anniversary. The fresh roses and luxurious bedding. It's more than all that though . . this place has such a good feel. Your feel at Peace here; you are renewed. It is rare to find such a place.
    David and Kim of Moscow, Idaho

  • Thank you again for a wonderful, beautiful, joyful, soulful time! Jim and I love it here so much. Both of you are an absolute pleasure :) Everything you guys do here for the guests is over-the-top wonderful!
    Jim and Kathy of Ridgefield, Washington

  • Thank you for making our last trip of the summer a great one! Your warm hospitality and wonderful bed and breakfast were all we hoped for. You truly leave no stone unturned, managing every detail beautifully. We walk away hoping for a return visit in the near future!
    John and Pam of Arvada, Colorado

  • I wanted the perfect surroundings for a once in a lifetime reunion and found it here at the Estate on the Lake. Mom came up from Arizona, myself not that far. Together we reconnoitered, holding hands, strolled the peaceful grounds overlooking the pristine water under the canopy of pines. Serenity bridging time, souls past - future. Could not have created a more perfect gentle surrounding for our time together. Everything easy. The hosts, Denise and Cary, anticipated and cared for all our needs in a most gracious - sumptuous manner.
    Patti and Ginny of Scottsdale, Arizona

  • OMG - I cannot say enough about this place! The home is stunning. Denise and Cary are like family. They are warm and welcoming and I could easily spend a week (or more) soaking up their hospitality and the charm of the place. You walk in the front door and there is this huge sweeping vista of the lake. The room is filled with musical instruments (a baby grand, old time piano, 2 drum sets, multiple guitars...) of which, if you are so inclined, allowed to play. We stayed 2 nights (and we both wished it was longer!) at the B&B. Our first night was in room #1. The personal touches and attention to detail are amazing. The handwritten note on the door welcoming us to the room. The 55" flat screen, the fresh roses in cut crystal vases, the Godiva chocolates, the Ralph Lauren bedding and the view of the lake from the bed are all over the moon!!! Denise's attention to detail makes you feel like a rock star; the little flash lights on the night stands so you can find your way to the bathroom without stubbing your toe!!!! The soaker tub, with the view of the lake, comes complete with Chanel No. 5 foaming bath and a rubber ducky (are you kidding me!!!!!). Cut crystal water glasses and soap dishes on the counter not to mention the towel warmer and the shower that you could easily accommodate 3 people in. Denise shows you around the room and explains everything in detail and then takes your order for breakfast. We had Cary's French Toast with Grand Marnier sauce - delish!!!!!! The breakfast table was artistically littered with crystal roses and glitter. The sides of the water glasses had little tiny rose magnets attached to them. Each place setting had its own little crystal salt and pepper shakers. Beautiful white china and the view - OMG the view of the lake. There is a private dock, a small beach complete with chairs and umbrella and a hammock with a cup holder :o) along with a stunning yard complete with water feature. Night 2 was in the "smaller" room but still with a stunning view of the lake, your own balcony, and all the same attention to detail as the larger room and the lovely hospitality of Denise and Cary. Our breakfast table theme for the next morning was butterflies; beautiful sparkly butterflies perched on a large champagne flute and butterfly glitter sprinkled around the table. I would rate this B&B a 12 out of 10 - you cannot describe this experience in words you need to treat yourself, go there and feel the stress simply drain away. EPIC!!!!!!
    E and D of Vancouver, Canada

  • Best B & B I've ever been to!
    Brian & Paige of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

We will certainly be back again and again, and we will tell everyone we meet. Thank you. Thank you again for our little vacation. You are both very precious.
    Rick and Anita of Elk, Washington

  • What a great place! We were looking for a get-away close to home where we could relax and rejuvenate. Your friendly hospitality, wonderful attention to details, and the estate itself lent to an experience that was what we both hoped for. Both rooms we stayed in were comfortable and offered something uniquely special. Breakfast and umbrella placement by the "sun master" complimented our stay perfectly. Thank you for everything.
    Dean and Lori of Spokane, Washington

  • What a marvelous, wondrous place! The service, care and kindness you've shown is outstanding. I wish we'd planned our vacation so we could have stayed longer.

    Cynthia and Ned of Escondido, California

  • Thank you for this little piece of heaven :)

    Kiley and Joel of Post Falls, Idaho

  • What a stay!! Just ending my visit with a breakfast of Cary's delicious Blueberry and Sweet Cream Pancakes along with the stunning lake view. My second time here at Estate on the Lake, and I'm even more impressed! Denise and Cary are like no other hosts. No detail is overlooked. The grounds are marvelous and the beauty of North Idaho amazing. Just a perfect place to unwind and relax! Thank you!
    C. A. of Los Angeles, California

  • Happy 7th Anniversary to us thanks to my thoughtful husband and the blessing of discovery - this place. Maple cream, French toast, water, and drums - what could be better? Thank you, Denise and Cary, for your beautiful pioneering spirits and love of beauty in detail. Keep up the great work! Hope to see you again soon and we will send many others this way, so get ready.
    Richard and Wendy of Valleyford, Washington

  • Our time at Estate on the Lake was just perfect. Mother Nature gave us the setting of mountains, lake, flowers, and trees - just beautiful. Your warmth and creativity (themed breakfasts and greeting cards on the table) along with the fabulous breakfasts complimented the setting. For the coming weeks, do not be surprised to have your ears burning. I will be telling our family and friends about your terrific B and B. Thank you for a wonderful stay in Northern Idaho.
    Katie and Alex of West Chester, Pennsylvania

  • What a perfect place to spend our one night honeymoon!! Thank you so much. You have such a discerning eye for creating a very special place. You go the extra mile! And we so enjoyed talking with you both. Hope you can visit us at Priest Lake sometime.
    Mike and Nancy of Rocky Point and Huckleberry Bay, Priest Lake, Idaho

  • This night's stay was a welcome oasis in a desert place. Everything was first class from the minute we walked in. The room was beautiful and comfortable with every amenity imaginable. We'd come for the Emmy Lou Harris concert at the Festival, and were just lucky to get a room here because someone cancelled. Breakfast was delicious - especially the croissant cinnamon rolls. We've stayed at a lot of BnBs and would rate this one right at the top of the list.
    Steve and Marilyn of Deer Park, Washington

  • Back again! What a wonderful spot to retreat to after the Long Bridge Swim! This cozy room with its gorgeous view, super comfortable bed, and window seat feels like a perfect nest in the Idaho trees. As always, the room and meal details are perfectly attended to. Denise and Cary are marvelous hosts! Thank you!
    C. A. of Beverly Hills, California

  • Thank you for a wonderful stay during our anniversary. Your thoughtfulness, generosity, creativity, and attention to detail make all the difference. Our celebration was all the more richer and would not have been the same without you. Stick to your own path; we hope to return again!
    Ken and Patty of Mead, Washington

  • Thank you once again for an amazing stay in your beautiful bed and breakfast on the lake. We couldn't think of anywhere we would rather celebrate our anniversary. Every detail is perfect; you think of everything:) The room is amazing (especially the balcony!). Breakfast was also incredible!! You have, once again, helped make our anniversary special. We look forward to our next stay!
    Matt and Lanna of Deary, Idaho

  • Spectacular, simply spectacular, serene, stunning. How serendipitous of us to discover your wonderful B & B. You are truly an inspiring couple. Your passion is infectious. Thank you for sharing your wonderful B & B - a true Nirvana.
    Silvana and Mark Mahony of Sidney, Australia

    Patrick and Marilyn of Spokane, Washington

  • Lexus calls it "The Relentless Pursuit of Perfection." Denise and Cary call it "Mission Accomplished." Best B & B you will ever stay at. Cary and Denise make it a special stay with their attention to everything. Make sure you ask Cary about golf. Hope we come back.
    Judy and Rick of Paoli, Pennsylvania

  • Thank you for another incredible anniversary at your beautiful B & B. Your thoughtfulness and hospitality is truly remarkable. The entire estate is so relaxing that it makes it hard to leave. Of course we would be remiss if we didn't mention the incredible breakfast. Thank you for all of your hard work, and we look forward to coming back again.
    Rebecca and Sean of Spokane, Washington

  • Thank you so very much for an awesome experience. Your warm and friendly personalities and professionalism in your work is truly a gift to all who come to "Estate on the Lake." You will be remembered well.

  • What a wonderful bed and breakfast! Thank you for sharing it with us. It is obvious that you put a tremendous amount of effort into this amazing place on the lake. Breakfast was absolutely fabulous!!
    Dan and Diane of Broomfield, Colorado

  • After an extraordinary breakfast, I sit here grateful, satisfied, and at peace. The time spent at your beautiful bed and breakfast has been transformative in so many directions. The beautiful, natural surroundings have been honored and expanded upon by your creation of a living space alive with color, texture, and thoughtful surprises around every corner. Thank you so much for sharing your creativity and graciousness with us. This experience has reminded us of the gift of beauty and a slower, more contemplative pace. We will return.

    Mark and Billie of Folsom, Louisiana

  • We were lucky enough to find Estate on The Lake which provided an amazing experience for my husband’s decade birthday celebration. Our hosts, Denise and Cary, were attentive to little details on every level, which brought joy and lasting memories making this a memorable event. The serenity of the lake views tempted us to stay put all day, yet Sandpoint and surrounding attractions are so close that we were able to fit everything in that we wanted to do in the area. Thank you Denise and Cary for all you did to make our stay so wonderful! We look forward to many more trips back to your special place as once is just not enough.
    Karen and Mark of Spokane, Washington

  • Beautiful B & B. Cary and Denise have thought out every detail. The bed and breakfast, along with the grounds, and the view, are exceptional. Breakfast was amazing! Thank you so much! We wish we were staying longer!
    Matt and Jeanne of Lynnwood, Washington

  • We were as awed as everyone else who have spent restful days in such a lovely bed and breakfast with hosts who really do enjoy what they do to make the experience so memorable. We have never had such deliciously prepared breakfasts!! The special touches were so much appreciated - and beautiful to behold. And, the lake and surroundings just can't be beat. Truly, this is The ¬¬Place to come back to. What puts it over the top is your hospitality. Thank you so much.
    Conrad and Jan of Tigard, Oregon

  • Thank you for making our 22nd Anniversary a memorable experience! We absolutely love the peaceful atmosphere at your B & B on this gorgeous lake. Your attention to detail is amazing, and your gourmet breakfast a real treat. We hope to return some day to ski.
    Jim and Jen of Burke, Virginia

  • This is our very first visit to the Sandpoint area, and we could not be any happier with our stay! Everything was perfect, and Denise and Cary were amazing hosts. We are on our honeymoon, and they did everything they could to make our stay just that much more special. We would love to come back here one day, and will definitely be telling our friends and family to visit as well. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much for everything! Amazing food! Loved the French Toast.
    Rick and Dara Kudras of Drumheller, Alberta, Canada

  • I don't even know where to begin . . . Thank you for your generous hospitality. This was our first "true" B & B experience and you have set the bar high for all others! We are here for Doug's 40th Class Reunion and Estate on the Lake will be a large part of the memories. Being able to stay on the lake Doug so fondly remembers has been amazing. Denise and Cary, you operate with such grace it makes for a very comfortable atmosphere! This suite is beautiful and all the little touches add so much. A big question is: can we go back to regular breakfast?!
    Doug and Denise of Bismarck, North Dakota

  • We have been fortunate to stay in B & Bs all over the world, but this one is definitely unique and perfect!!! All the attention to details - the setting - but above all, the hosts who are truly "people-people!!!" We look forward to a longer stay "off season" to be able to explore and photograph. We will be telling lots of friends to come and stay - Thank you!
    Rob and Pam of Olympia, Washington

  • Wow! What an amazing place. Denise and Cary thought of everything to make our ten year anniversary memorable. The beautiful view, the festive room, the chocolate cake, the blankets by the fire are just a few of the wonderful things that made this B & B stand out. Thank you for your kindness and making our 10th one for the books! We can't wait to come back!
    Chase and Anna of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

  • Simply thanking you is not enough - your love and special attention to our celebration stay goes beyond words. We had an amazing time. Denise and Cary are gracious hosts and wonderful chefs! The grounds are spectacular and the lake calls you to relax. Our 1st stay, however, not our last! Cheers
    Heather and Jay of Whitefish, Montana

  • We want to thank you for all your care and attention to detail that made our 25th so special. Everything was perfect! We were truly pampered in every way. The room, the food, the views, all amazing. You've given us a beautiful memory. Thank you.
    Randy and Katherine of Athol, Idaho

  • On a whim, we phoned mid-afternoon and were lucky to have Suite #4. Great balcony, view, room. Breakfast was over-the-top delicious and beautiful. Bed mattress was to our liking as was the shower. We did not need all the tech/tv/etc. support as we're readers more than watchers, but the equipment would satisfy the younger set. Highly recommend this B & B.
    Sue and Don of Sartell, Minnesota

  • Our second night in this amazing B & B! We didn't book with much time in advance, which is why we had 2 different rooms during our stay. Denise and Cary were great and found a way to accommodate us and make our stay truly enjoyable. Breakfast is delicious, views are breathtaking, and the rooms are comfortable and equipped with everything you might need. My husband and I had a splendid time and will definitely come back! Thank you for everything!!
    Luis and Natalie of Guadalajara, Mexico

  • Thank you so much for the great stay. Such a nice place. Thanks for ordering the moon last night. Love your motif in everything. Loved breakfast.

I truly appreciate all the lovely decor and extra attention for my birthday. Thank you for making my day so special! We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return.
    Luis and Natalie of Guadalajara, Mexico

  • Enjoyed our stay very much. Relaxing, peaceful, quiet setting. Beautiful room and grounds. Helpful and gracious hosts with so much attention to detail. Delicious breakfast and appreciated the extra treats and coffee in the room. Very special anniversary get away! Thank you so much.
    M and L of Hayden, Idaho

  • From the view of the lake to the one-of-a-kind furnishings, I was so impressed by my first visit to "The Estate On The Lake!" I felt as though I was in a 5 Star Resort. Denise and Cary, you couldn't have been warmer hosts. The fresh roses you left in my suite made me feel so welcome. Next time I'll be bringing family and friends . . . and staying longer!
    Robson of San Diego, California

  • What a special, wonderful time for my daughter and myself on my birthday weekend. The food, service, and hospitality was so wonderful. Breakfast was with all of our favorite food choices. The gourmet hot chocolate with the chocolate truffles made my daughter's day. The view and balcony was so special. The best part was the kind and devoted attention from our hosts. Thank you so much for a splendid, memorable time here at the beautiful Estate On The Lake!
    Agnes and Christina of Culver City, California

    C. S. A. of Culver City, California

Hummingbirds and butterflies. A bumble bee as big as a bird . . . Amazing. We will return. . . . and the breakfast. Gluten-free!!
    Dawn and Murray Baker of Calgary, Alberta, Canada

  • Picture perfect from the bed and breakfast to all the details, and, of course, Denise and Cary. Thank you for everything. We look forward to coming back.

    Jim and Rebecca of Washington

  • Thank you so much for making this such a comfortable stay. We stayed in Suite 1, which was great, private, and had a beautiful view of the lake and our own "private" outdoor entrance to the shared patio. We really enjoyed reading on the dock and taking in the beautiful scenery. Denise and Cary are lovely hosts - Denise provides great detail to the services she provides - Cary is a master cook. We felt pampered and would love to come back here again.
    Bruce and Geri of Salt Lake City, Utah

  • We wanted to do something fun and different for my 30th birthday. I had never been to a bed and breakfast before, but my girlfriend had, and really sold me on the idea. Couldn't have been happier! The bed and breakfast is amazing, extremely comfortable, lounge options inside and outside to fit every need, and want. The food was better than many restaurants I've been to - and that really doesn't even do them justice - with exceptional service, too. Our hosts were extremely friendly, fun, and helpful. It was a fantastic weekend and we're really looking forward to our next visit! Thanks for the amazing weekend!
    Jeff and Cherra of Pullman, Washington

  • So happy my hubby did the reservation for your BEAUTIFUL B & B! Are we ever spoiled and pampered at your bed and breakfast. Thank you, thank you for all the extra fine touches that you gave us.

Thank you for your hospitality and grace. It is truly appreciated.
    Linda and Kevin of Gerber, California

  • This was our first experience with a B and B! I can't possibly believe others could be this incredible! So many special touches, going far above and beyond anything we expected, didn't go unnoticed! The morning breakfast was absolutely delicious and the "Rose Theme" setting incredible. Special memories made! Thank you for everything! Next year we'll come in August for our Anniversary!
    Michele and Mike of Chinook, MT

  • Everything was wonderful! Gorgeous views, soft, cozy bed, privacy, relaxing atmosphere, and so peaceful! We loved the outdoor seating, garden, and dock. Our hosts were gracious and attentive.

    Jacob and Rebecca of Bozeman, MT

  • Thank you so much for the absolutely wonderful stay at your beautiful Estate On The Lake. We love the accommodations, and the food was fabulous. Very peaceful, relaxing time. We can't wait to tell our friends!
    Kathy and Doug of Lewiston, Idaho

    Marcia and Macon of Lithia, Florida

  • Our stay at your Bed and Breakfast was beyond our expectations. The view from our balcony was incredible. The atmosphere was so peaceful and calming. The Breakfast was out of this world. We thank you for treating us like family. You two are a great team and have created a Bed and Breakfast that is beyond 5-Star quality. From the truffles in our room, to the roses everywhere you go, to the blankets bought to us at the fireplace, to the down pillows: every little detail made this a stay we will never forget! Thank you for everything!
    Britney and Brenda of Post Falls, Idaho (Mother/Daughter Overnight)

  • Thank you for a most enjoyable 5 night stay. Your Estate on the Lake is truly a gem! The property is stunning, the rooms well-appointed, the breakfast outstanding, and the cordiality genuine. We couldn't be more pleased with the time we spent here. The service exceeded anything we've experienced - even from a Ritz-Carlton or Four Seasons. The personal attention you give your guests at Estate on the Lake makes all the difference in the world. We loved talking to you both about your love of photography and nature. We enjoyed relaxing in the multiple seating areas around the property (including our personal balcony!) and taking in the view. Thank you so much for sharing your bed and breakfast with us with its wonderful art and elegant furnishings. We will recommend Estate on the Lake to anyone headed to northern Idaho!
    Charlie and Marcia of Phoenix, Arizona

  • What a beautiful and magical bed and breakfast you have created for your guests. We loved our stay here. The view of the lake is breathtaking and reminded us our home in Alaska. Serenity * a spiritual renewal enriched our soul * allowed for the rest we so needed. Thank you for all of your sweet touches, and Cary, your cooking was so delicious; we hope to return.
    Tricia and Clint of Arlington, Washington

  • I just want to say that it was a wonderful experience: every little detail in the room, all of the great service that was provided, and the Breakfast was absolutely out of this world with goodness; it made everything just tie together very nicely, and also there was a great deal of respect for privacy for my wife and me. We were quite happy with it all.
    Brianna and Josh of Medical Lake, Washington

  • I can't believe how lucky we are to have found you and your beautiful bed and breakfast. All your special touches and your friendliness made this the most special of our vacation!
    Teresa and David of Tallahassee, Florida

  • Outstanding! Everything about this B and B is first class and easily a 5 Star Rating in every conceivable category: room is extremely sharp/comfortable; breakfast variety/quality/service is better than top restaurants; cozy places to sit and read/relax are numerous; hosts are very friendly, yet professional in service. Just outstanding.
    On a more personal note, we extended our stay an extra day since the "whole picture" was something we needed to prolong. And Denise and Cary were just too good to us . . . from the moment we inquired, to the final good-bye. Just outstanding!

    Les and Peggy of San Luis Obispo, California

  • Thanks for the pleasure of sharing your bed and breakfast and hospitality. You're the very best, and we wish you continued health, success, and happiness. God Bless and we hope that we will cross paths again.

    Kelly and Diane of Spokane, Washington

  • Truly a magnificent experience which went above and beyond our expectations! The property is impeccable, rooms amazingly comfortable and views of the lake are thoroughly relaxing. the best part of all were our incredible hosts, Denise and Cary.

    C and Y of Manhattan Beach, California

  • Thanks for the best 3 nights I can remember! The bed was like a cloud, and the scenery is out of a movie!! And the service, company, and food was 5 Star *****!!! I can't wait to come back to my new favorite B & B :)
    P. T. of Los Angeles, California

  • Beautiful and pristine lake location with amazing views in every room! The level of detail from the flowers to the mini-bars to the delicious and gourmet meals, makes this place a world class B & B! Lots of activities, and Denise and Cary were so helpful with knowledge of the area and suggestions. It was a perfect balance of romantic relaxation and adventures. We've traveled the world and this place is a hidden gem! We'll be back!!

    Bill and Kathy of Monroe, Washington

  • Thank you for making our 23rd wedding anniversary so memorable and relaxing! The sound of water is always an instant de-stresser for us. The beauty of the mountains, the well-kept grounds, and cozy rooms were also a big help. The food was delicious and your gentle manner made us at once feel most welcome! We do hope to come back for some more serious R & R!! God Bless.
    Tom and Elena of Rathdrum, Idaho

  • What a superb two days we have had staying with you! You have contributed magnificently to the splendor of our visit to Idaho - the 49th State on our travels through your great country. Your bed and breakfast is so elegant and reminds us of Frank Lloyd Wright's house designs. Your hospitality and attention to every detail are quite outstanding. As for the position on the lake and the outlook - well, just wonderful!
    Inger and John of London, England

  • We came because of the great reviews you had, and we were not disappointed. Our stay has been relaxing. We have felt totally pampered and genuinely cared about. Your bed and breakfast and accommodations are lovely. Your service and attention to detail is superb - so fun to see what surprises await us. The grounds and views are beautiful. The food absolutely the best. We will recommend you and we will return. Thank you for a great B and B experience.
    P.S. The cleanest place we have ever stayed!!

    Glen and Carol B. of Princeton, Idaho

  • Our 52nd Anniversary. We have traveled all around the Country and stayed in Bed and Breakfasts whenever possible. This is by far the Most Wonderful Experience we have had. The privilege of being able to share in the antiques, works of art, of stone, wood, and photography was such a blessing. The food was next to perfection, and the presentation, unmatched. The extent they went to know us and what we liked was amazing. They went the extra mile to provide us with an experience, not just a bed and breakfast. Needless to say, we love this place and will be back
    Al and Carol Z. of Manson, Washington

  • Thank you for once again for making our anniversary an amazing experience! Our first year anniversary will be unforgettable due to your hospitality. You both work so hard so your guests have a perfect time. Here's to next year!
    Nikkole and Kyle H. of Spokane, Washington

  • Thank you for a wonderful stay! I wish we had more than one night to enjoy your beautiful bed and breakfast. The setting on the lake could not be more perfect. We loved the chance to unwind and relax in such a beautiful place - we LOVED the view from the room! Thank you for going the extra mile and making Todd's Birthday Celebration extra special! The food, the attention to detail, the accommodations were all spectacular! We will be back again!
    Todd and Diana of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

  • Thank you both for making our 26th Anniversary so special. We were truly overwhelmed by your attentiveness and how gracious you were! Your bed and breakfast is lovely, the grounds are just wonderful - the breakfast was delightful. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
    Carrie and Jerry of Ennis, Montana

  • Thank you, Denise and Cary. Once again, your bed and breakfast is an unparalleled paradise getaway. The best part, however, is you and Cary. The incredible hospitality and warm sincerity is hard to describe, but we are leaving with lifelong memories we will cherish always. We feel obliged to return with friends as the experience is way too special to keep to ourselves. Your forever friends,
    Phil and Lorena of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

  • Thank you for the most wonderful B and B experience. Luxurious room, comfy bed, surrounded by art and spectacular views! And Cary's breakfasts are amazing! Such generosity of spirit and knowledge made us feel truly at home! And thanks, Denise, for your real estate advice! We have stayed in many B and Bs over the years, and this is one of (if not the) best experience.
    Don and Christine of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

  • Many thanks to Denise and Cary for their splendid hospitality. There's nothing that beats their Bed and Breakfast on the Lake. Great People. Cozy house. The View off the Lake is to die for. This has been our 2nd stay and we'll be back for years to come. Thank you for everything. We've made Life Long Friends. We highly recommend your Bed and Breakfast to everyone that likes to relax and be pampered :)
    Rick and Misty of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

  • "Our 60th Anniversary Trip"
    Oh, you changed Richard's opinion of B and Bs!
    We have always heard of our "Southern hospitality," but ours is a shadow compared to Denise and Cary, who are the stars! Tears in our eyes when we saw our room, the anniversary decorations, the chocolate mousse cake, are the extra's anyone would want. This visit will be the highlight of our 6-8 week road trip. Thank you for sharing your art. Watch out - we may come back for our "70" Anniversary! Fell in love with your hide away cove! Being Southern, I always end by sending Love and Hugs,

    Richard and Myra of Pine Mountain, Georgia

  • Thank you Denise and Cary for a relaxing stay. Your bed and breakfast is a truly unique environment, and we enjoyed sharing the aspects of food, scenery, music, and art with you. We will be listening to music with special attention to the drumbeats from now on! Continuing to work on our golf games,
    Michael and Sherry of Olympia, Washington

  • Thank you Denise and Cary for a wonderful 4th Anniversary/Babymoon "Staycation." You both were so great. The room was beautiful. The view is breathtaking and the food was awesome! Your attention to detail is fantastic! I had no idea you had this wonderful hidden paradise in our wonderful little town. We will definitely be back when we go on our next Staycation! Thank you again! You will be at the top of recommendations for places to stay!

    DAT and CT of Garden Grove, California

  • Fantastic Room. Fantastic View. Fantastic Service. Fantastic Food. Fantastic!
    JCT and DMT of Seattle, Washington

  • The amazing location of your B and B would be enough on its own to give you 5 stars, but your amazing hospitality, Cary's great breakfasts, Denise's stories, and your over-the-top attention to detail sealed the deal. I wish we lived about 1400 miles closer so we could visit more often. Thanks so much!
    Patsy and Ron of Eagle, Nebraska

  • Thank you for such a wonderful experience! Best B & B so far. Your hospitality - over the top! Breakfast, what can we say except the Best Ever! Great view, wonderful food and conversations. We loved everything about our stay and hope you have continued success. Thank you!
    Linda and Dennis of Lincoln, Nebraska

  • Thank you! Thank you! We just can't say enough good things about Estate on the Lake. Fabulous room, fabulous view, fabulous breakfast. Since we came in the middle of May, the garden has blooming columbines and bearded irises - never seen such tall ones. Ask for a chair and sit under the falling blossoms of the ornamental cherry tree and apple tree and drink in spring.
    D and J of Seattle, Washington

  • A wonderful experience! The utmost attention to detail of any B&B we have ever visited. Denise and Cary are stellar hosts. The suite we had was very comfortable and luxurious. Breakfast was a delicious experience you will not soon forget. .... The sunrise on the lake was very nice and peaceful. Musicians and artists will especially love their stay here!
    D. L. of Washington State

  • We wish we had more time to enjoy your beautiful bed and breakfast and company. Our stay was perfect! We loved our evening and morning walks listening to the singing birds. Breakfast was relaxing and yummy. This was definitely the fanciest place we have stayed, yet if felt comfortable and welcoming. We hope to be back soon.
    Dave and Midori of Seattle, Washington

  • We had a nice and relaxing time here. We sure appreciated the amazing breakfasts and all the detail "Romantics" that came included. This was a unique experience that we haven't had before! I had my first drum lesson, and Laurie had her first bath in rose petals. Thank you for everything!

    Andy and Rhonda of Auburn, Washington

    Julie and Tom of Liberty Lake, Washington

  • Thank you so much for making Al and I feel at home. The lighthouse was a special touch, and I appreciate that! You made our night feel so special. The bed was comfy, water was perfect, the sounds of rain were comforting, and your smile was spectacular. Cary taking the effort to share his stories of talent are ones I'll share with my children. Can't wait to return. Thanks so much.
    Jenelle and Al of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

  • What an overwhelming sensation of being pampered! Comfortable room with private bath, balcony, and well stocked honor bar. The house is gorgeous and the view, AMAZING. Breakfast was the best we've ever enjoyed. Hosts are lovely and detail oriented. Your needs and desires are anticipated and met in luxurious style. 1st time B and B experience, and even though I have nothing to compare, I would say it was 5 Stars (highest rating whatever that is). Thank you!
    Howard and Betty of Lenore, Idaho

  • It has been a magical experience within the happy walls of your B and B! Thank you for everything, including the drum lessons! It was the best way to spend my Birthday and Anniversary, and now Kelly and I have two new friends! We'll be back!
    Keith of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

  • --- Magical ---
    If there is a drum, you should beat it. If there is a Jacuzzi tub, you should soak in it. If there is chocolate, you should enjoy it. If there is conversation, you should cherish it. If there is gourmet coffee . . . you should howl at the moon. Take the drum lesson! Denise and Cary - two of the loveliest souls - experts at filling their B and B with love and laughter.
    --- Magical ---

    Kelly of Coeur d'Alene, ID

  • Thank you so much for providing such a romantic, tranquil, and delightful Valentine's Day Stay! It is unbelievable that such a jewel of a BnB is so close to our Spokane home. We will certainly be returning regularly. We have visited BnB's all over the world and have never seen such attention to detail, provision of every possible amenity, cleanliness, fresh and delicious breakfast, and world class luxury set in a natural setting! Congratulations! We wish and expect you will have the best of success.
    Kathy and Bruce of Liberty Lake, Washington

  • We had such an incredible experience! This is going to be a favorite place in our book. From the time we arrived until pulling away, we have felt at home and pampered at the same time. The personal touches that stand out made every moment feel special. The views are fantastic. You are both so amazing. Thank you for a wonderful visit!
    Christina and Bryan of Post Falls, Idaho

  • This was our first overnight since our boys were little, and now they are adults! I must say I'm so glad we found you!! I feel like a silly excited child. I did not expect such a lovely experience!! You guys added special touches like the fresh roses and decorating the room for Valentine's Day with the chocolates. We felt spoiled and pampered!! Truly an unforgettable experience. I sat for a while after breakfast was served because the set up was so beautiful! Thank you for your wonderful service and making our Valentine's special!
    Jocelyn and Damon of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

  • Wow! What a gem! We stayed for a Valentine's getaway and were totally impressed. The attention to details in our room and breakfast were absolutely amazing! We were totally pampered and loved! Thank you for a memorable Valentine's Day! You far exceeded our expectations! We will be back and will reserve early enough to get Suite 1!!!!

We will be recommending this place to all of our friends!
    Darci and Bob of Chico, California

  • Wow! My first B and B experience, and you sure set the bar high. We can't thank you enough for giving us so much of your time to just learn about the area, and especially the drum lessons! Your bed and breakfast is absolutely amazing; all the accommodations were top notch. It truly shows how much you care about your guests, and that we enjoy our stay. Thanks again!
    Ashley of Carlsbad, California

  • Beautiful, serene, comfortable, cozy, snowy, musical. Our stay could not have been more perfect! Your attention to detail made everything delicious, gracious, and exquisite. The setting here is picturesque and your bed and breakfast could not be more lovely. I wish we could stay longer (and we will when we return). Thank you so much for your friendliness and hospitality (as well as the drum lessons and local information.) We will never forget you or our experience at Estate On The Lake.
    Denise and Keith of Carlsbad, California

  • You made our anniversary amazing! Thank you so much for the beautiful experience. We enjoyed the views, and your wonderful bed and breakfast. Of course, not to mention the outstanding breakfast. Looking forward to coming out in the Spring when everything is in bloom. Thank you, again.
    Jim and Lisa of San Diego, California

  • Let me just say that this beautiful bed and breakfast and couple (Denise and Cary) was the most wonderful getaway we have ever had!!! The location is wonderful, bring your bikes and walking shoes! The B&B is right on the lake! We had beautiful weather!!! We are planning our next trip and will be bringing our inner tubes for the lake!!!
    Denise and Cary are so wonderful! We really felt special! We got to our beautiful room and honestly so beautiful! The little touches all around were wonderful. Roses in our room, chocolate and fruit, a stocked refrigerator with all kinds of snacks that you pay for when you leave! A coffee and tea bar, a beautiful bathtub and shower. Denise said that there was a little surprise in the bathroom at 10pm so don't miss it and she giggled! Of course I had to check it out! Super cool! Totally not gonna ruin that for you guys, you'll have to go and check it out!!!
    Breakfast was over the top! Our own little table with just the sweetest touches you will ever have!!!! Flowers, fruit in our water, little individual butter and salt and pepper! They even fly in this special bread for the French toast. Who does that? Denise and Cary do! They are just absolutely wonderful!
    So treat yourselves to a special treat!!! You will love it and you will go back every year, like us!!

    K and J of Clark County, Washington

  • Thank you so much for making our weekend trip so wonderful! It feels like each time we come back to EstateOnTheLakeBandB.com, it is better than the last! Skiing was so much fun, and each meal was memorable and delicious!) We can't wait to come back!
    Jenny and Eric of Seattle, Washington

  • This was my second trip to your beautiful and luxurious Bed and Breakfast. I thought the first trip was very special; however, visiting this time was not only very special but it was as though we were traveling back to visit dear friends again. You have a gift of making people feel special and sincerely and warmly welcomed. My first trip was in the summer, this trip was in the winter, and I must say the snow on the mountain tops and on the lake was magnificent. I can't wait to come again.....perhaps in the Fall? Thank you for going above and beyond the call of duty to make us feel so very comfortable. The breakfast was superb, the helpings were large, and the table was displayed with such grace and care. I truly love our visits, the quiet and cozy evenings, and our wonderful conversations! I look forward to seeing you both again soon!
    J.B. in South Carolina

  • What a great way to start the new year and 11 years of marriage together! We had such an enjoyable time here, and you two were amazing hosts! You make it look so easy, but we know there is a lot of work and time that you two have put into making a memorable stay for your guests! The food was great, too! Thank you again!
    Mike and Diane of Coeur d'Alene, ID.

    Foster and Julie of Greenacres, Washington

  • We loved it! No expense was spared on anything. Very nice furniture and bed. The Bathtub has bubble jets!!! Very large shower room for 2 :) !! Very large TV with cable dvd/blu-ray and Netflix. The view was beautiful and you can walk down to the water from the room. The food was AMAZING! Three course breakfast and everything was to die for! Our only regret is that we only stayed for one night. Definitely going back for an anniversary and staying for 2 nights next time.
    Mr. and Mrs. Ian W. of Ponderay, Idaho

  • Some adventures are private, other's meant to be shared. It's rare when both are combined in one memorable trip. We leave with private moments, that Donna and I will remember as the greatest moments in the celebration of our 36th anniversary. We will share our joy of a great place for others to find their own magic journey. This journey was only possible thru the painstaking details that our new friends created for us during our stay! Thank you again and again. Blessing. See you soon.
    Nick and Donna of Veradale, Washington 99037

  • Larry and I have stayed in several B & Bs, and this is by far the most elegant! The owners have done a lot to make sure that the guests are happy and have what they need. We hope to visit again!
    Larry and Sue of Hope, Idaho

  • You left no stone unturned! Your attention to detail gives new meaning to the title "Innkeepers" - incredible attention to detail, impeccable taste, beauty in all you do, sustainable practices, warmth and generous hearts. We will not forget you two, and your gift of unforgettable memories here at Estate On The Lake, is priceless. We will be back again soon!
    Shawn and Gina of Southern California

  • You have made our honeymoon a memorable, beautiful, and loving experience. I love your style, and the attention to every detail is amazing!!

The breakfast was the icing on the cake - everything was delicious, so beautiful to behold, also! It is so relaxing . . . wish we could stay longer!!
    Ron and Una of Santa Rosa, California

  • We were here last year in Suite 2, so we tried Suite 1 this year. The idyllic setting was every bit as spectacular: lake view, fall colors, wildlife. Again, I saw two deer! My husband and I had the most amazing breakfasts this whole week - carefully planned and beautifully presented. We just so love coming here. After traveling the world over, this is our best quiet and personal getaway. We'll be here again. Thank you!
    J and D of Irvine, California

  • I had a great time here. The breakfasts were great, and the room amenities were top notch. I would recommend this place to anyone.
    M. T. of El Paso, Texas.

  • I have traveled a lot and have never been to a nicer place. The hosts attended to everything, big or small. The suites are beautiful and with amenities I haven't experienced elsewhere. The view from the suite of the lake and grounds is beautiful and relaxing. The breakfasts were terrific and catered to individual taste. This is a wonderful place to visit.
    J. P. of Costa Mesa, California

  • Absolutely one of the finest hotel/B and B experience we have ever had. The view was breath-taking. The detail was amazing. The ambiance was perfect.
    Dennis and Tammy of Moscow, Idaho

  • We had a fantastic stay at your beautiful Bed and Breakfast! Our favorite parts were of course the view of the lake and changing colors of the trees, having a gourmet breakfast served in our suite to us, and your wonderful and generous hospitality! Thank you for the great weekend get-away!
    James K. and Katie C. of Spokane, Washington

  • We had a wonderful time during our visit! Your attention to detail made our stay most enjoyable. Of course, the breakfasts were awesome. We felt very comfortable and relaxed in your most gorgeous B and B and care. The absolute most delightful hospitality and breakfasts we've ever had. We will be back during another season to see what your beautiful grounds have to reveal! So much to experience - need several trips here to take "it" all in. Thank you for your kindness, smiles, and hearts.
    Lisa and Randal of Pullman, Washington

  • This is amazing! We are glad to have been here. You are so hospitable and friendly. Everything is so well thought out and all our comfort needs met, and breakfast was absolutely wonderful - both days. We will tell everyone about this lovely place.
    Bruce and Raeleen of Spokane, Washington

  • This is the top B and B we have experienced in all our travels. We couldn't believe what was offered for the price! First, the scenery would rival any destination; it is located directly on the water. Our room and the balcony off the room were directly on the lake with a crystal clear, clean lightness that was absolutely stunning. The room was especially quiet and private. The amenities in the room were beyond what anyone would expect: from extra phone chargers, surround sound, free movies, refrigerator, freezer, microwave, champagne service, down pillows, premium sheets: we could go on and on. Again, we couldn't believe all these things were provided for what we paid. This was a super-reasonable value!! On top of all this, we had the best omelette ever! Wonderful food, extremely fair price, brilliant views and grounds, and most importantly, the owners were so accommodating and flexible to meet all our needs.
    Vicky and Chip of Columbus, Ohio

  • This was my first visit to this part of Idaho and I could not have picked a more comfortable bed and breakfast base than this. Thank you for all the thoughtful attention to providing a restful and luxurious B and B. The breakfasts were delicious and all the art work and artful presentation of everything was much appreciated.
    Karen E. of Portland, Oregon

  • A B&B like no other. The food, accommodations, and especially the hospitality - exceptional. Thank you for making our first visit to Sandpoint a truly memorable one.

    Marlene J. and Dean T. of Bellingham, Washington

  • The views were amazing with autumn leaves falling, and the sun shining across the Lake. Breakfast was fantastic with healthy portions, and cooked to perfection, with beautiful personalized decor and detail. The suite had everything you could hope for and much more. This was our second time, and we'll be coming back . . . again and again!
    D and Z of Spokane, Washington

    Jeff and Michelle S. of Phoenix, Arizona

  • Regrettably, only a one night stay, passing through this wonderful town. I would like to thank you both for the wonderful and comfortable stay we experienced. Your attention to detail is second to none. We were happy to have met you and to have stayed in your wonderful B and B.
    Helen and Duane of Mascot, Sydney, Australia

    Ulrike and Claus from Essen, Germany

  • We certainly appreciated your utmost hospitality. So glad we stayed here, with all the natural beauty and superb bed, furnishings, etc. The breakfast was so well put together, and served beautifully. Not to mention delicious. This is top rate, gladly recommended to others.
    Ralph and Vivian H. of Post Falls, Idaho

  • Thank you so much for a wonderful stay at your B and B! The attention to details for me is just amazing! You both really do have a wonderful sense of making every moment special! I cannot believe that view! Waking up in the morning to that view really starts your day. Thank you again for a wonderful time! You are my #1 Bed and Breakfast. Jim's gonna have a hard time finding anything that compares.
    Jim and Kathy M. of Vancouver, Washington

  • I needed to treat myself - what a year! Could I have chosen anything nicer?? Though I'm minutes from home, it felt as though I'd been transported to a faraway, magical place. Thank you, thank you, for sharing this lovely haven - quiet, serenity, wonderful food (on the terrace), and the warmest hospitality.
    Lynn (and Robin) C. of Sandpoint

  • "Heaven on Earth" doesn't cover this wonderful B and B! They have thought of everything, plus. The breakfasts were terrific. If you want great conversations, you've got it, but if you want a little privacy or solitude, this is the best place. Great hosts. Best B and B we have ever stayed in.
    Eileen and Dick F. of American Fork, Utah

  • This B and B: very nice, just felt like home. Ervin loved his birthday here, his 80th.
    Georgia T and Ervin R. of Sandpoint, Idaho

  • Sitting at my computer in Chagrin Falls (near Cleveland), Ohio, I had about given up finding a really nice place to stay around Sandpoint, but then about 10 p.m. I gave it "one more try," and found your B and B ! ! Now, what a wonderful find it was! Thank you for delicious food, lovely room and view, and your attention to detail making us feel special. We will never forget your hospitality and beautiful estate on the lake!
    Mike and Lynn M. of Chagrin Falls, Ohio

  • Such a fun way to spend a weekend! This was our first B and B experience, and it was amazing! The food was absolutely wonderful as were the incredible views. Thanks again for the excellent hospitality!
    Kim and Stefan Y. of Moscow, Idaho

  • The nicest B and B I have ever been to. An amazing view and breakfast. Loved every minute of our stay. Celebrated 5 years with each other and so enjoyed the experience. Thank you for a wonderful retreat and great service.
    Rebecca and Mathew L. of Pullman, Washington

  • Beautiful "God" art outside. Beautiful People inside and out; Beautiful Art on a Plate; ahhh, eatable Art! Thank you!
    Charlie and Lynda R. of Nampa, Idaho

  • The minute we saw your property, we wished we had planned to stay longer. Everything about our stay was perfect. Great accommodations, delicious food, stimulating conversation, and a gorgeous view. Thanks so much.
    Tina and AJ of Portland, Oregon

  • What a fabulous property you have. You have not missed any details. Thank you for all you both did to make our perfect vacation. P.S. Breakfast was fab!
    Rich and Shelli D. of Wenatchee, Washington

  • Thank you for making our mini-vacation to Sandpoint a memorable one. The room and the breakfast were wonderful.
    Bruce and Diane B. of Eagle, Idaho

  • What a wonderful spot for a girlfriends' retreat. You couldn't ask for a more beautiful setting, gracious hosts, or wonderful accommodations. Your breakfasts were divine, Cary, and Denise's special touches and attention to every detail made it so very special. It was wonderful!
    Sally T. of Sandpoint, Idaho

  • We cannot thank you enough for the memories that we will take with us after our stay. This was the perfect "girls' get-away." We laughed till we cried. From the moose (Mom and Babe) to the best French toast ever . . . this will not be forgotten.
    D., S., J., and M., and C.

  • Your hospitality was over the top. Your amenities, the view (Moose and Baby) and the lake, and the wonderful food were "5 Star." We enjoyed our stay so much.
    Allen and Sheree K. of Hendersonville, North Carolina

  • Extraordinaire! We have thoroughly enjoyed your hospitality, cuisine, peaceful abode amid designer taste. But most of all the Mama and Baby Moose munching from your apples, providing a close-up photo opportunity. Our biggest regret is not staying longer, but surely next time.
    John and Denice B. of Charlotte/Cornelius, North Carolina

  • Our visit here was an exceptional surprise in excellence at every turn. We felt our care here was a piece of living art, and so we felt at home nestled among Cary's sculptures. We look forward to our return trip.
    Donna and Jerry E. of Seattle, Washington

  • We are very grateful that we got to stay in such a beautiful setting. It indeed was a treat and a special birthday blessing. We will treasure our memories and this beautiful place.
    Scott and Chris J. of Spokane, Washington

  • What a wonderfully relaxing few days we've enjoyed at this lovely place. You could teach Martha Stewart a thing or two about gracious hospitality and entertaining. We have stayed in B and Bs in England, Wales, and Europe. We have stayed in 4 and 5 Star Hotels but what you have shown us in the past two days surpasses all of that. EstateOnTheLakeBandB.com is an exquisite gem - thanks in large part to your tremendous attention to detail and your obvious delight in pampering your guests and taking hospitality to a higher level - something that is sadly lacking in so many places today. Thank you for your splendid hospitality. Your property is lovely and the peaceful surroundings are a tonic for the soul. Exquisite.
    Glyn and Ginger H. of Hailey, Idaho

  • WOW!! . . . Great location, great hosts, great breakfasts. Thank you for making our Anniversary special. The extra details (flowers, table settings, the little notes, dinner reservations) all made it extra nice.
    Steve and Mary M. of Elma, Washington

  • I tried to think of one word to describe my experience here. Serenity was the word! Beautiful surroundings, wonderful hosts, fantastic food, and whatever you could wish for, was provided. This has been the "10 Star" accommodation I have ever stayed in, and I have traveled my whole life internationally. Thank you for your hospitality.
    P. S. of Homer, Alaska

  • Thank you for making our five year anniversary such a special event. We loved every moment. You have such a beautiful property and made us feel so welcome.
    Joshua and Jenifer M. of Spokane, Washington

  • Luckily we came across the EstateOnTheLakeBandB.com on the internet. The property and grounds are beautiful. The setting on the lake was picturesque. Our hosts were great as well as the food. Thanks so much.
    Gail C. and Mary W. of Westerville, Ohio

  • Wish we were staying longer! At least we got one night and day in paradise. By far the best B and B I've stayed in!
    Nancy T. of Walnut Creek, California, and Audrey S. of Bellingham, Washington

  • What a wonderful visit we had! We stayed in Suite No. 2 and you made us feel like the King and Queen. The waves lapping on the shore sang us to sleep at night. We awoke to the magnificent view of the sun shining upon the lake! Our accommodations were First Class and the breakfasts were simply amazing. Thank you for making our visit so memorable.
    Marc and Nancy R. of Moscow, Idaho

  • The "best ever" B and B we've stayed in. We would recommend this highly. From the very beginning, we were made to feel welcomed and pampered. It's right on the lake, and you can hear the waves which is very relaxing. Each breakfast was excellent. Everything has exquisite detail and there is nothing left out. There are close biking trails and easy to get to Sandpoint with cute shops and nice city beach. Can't wait to come back! Thanks!
    Becky and Fish Bah P. of Kalispell, Montana

  • What an amazing piece of heaven! We absolutely love everything about this place. Our hosts were delightful and welcomed us as family. Our compliments to the breakfast chef. We may be the only two in recent weeks not celebrating our anniversary, but, nevertheless, our stay could not have been more amazing.
    Jane and George D. of Cave Creek, Arizona

  • Thank you for a wonderful stay. EstateOnTheLakeBandB.com is a beautiful property. Our stay was restful and relaxing. The breakfasts were amazing as was your attention to detail. We certainly felt pampered. I can't think of a more lovely place to have spent our 42nd Anniversary.
    Barbara and Ed W. of Libertyville, Illinois

  • Thank you for making our 25th Anniversary so very special. The property is so beautiful. The breakfasts were delicious. Your attention to detail . . . the flowers . . . the gorgeous view and yard . . . the amazing comfortable bed/sheets . . . the location can't be beat (great for walking). We rested in the hammock, swam off of the beach, read on the dock . . . feel pampered and can't wait to return and we haven't even left yet. Our hosts are creative, gifted, and interesting to talk to. Loved the art - my husband loved the music room and the guitar in the room! We stayed in Suites 1 and 2. We loved them both so much . . . couldn't decide which we liked best . . . they are both perfect! Anyone that stays here will feel as blessed as we do that we found you.
    David and Kim S. of Moscow, Idaho

  • For two days and nights I lived the life I believe aristocrats live. I am leaving with a sense of deep peace and relaxation.
    The surroundings are exquisite: the lawn carefully manicured with stately walnut trees, a gentle brook, a quiet, private lake front. The house abounds with original, imaginative sculptures, photographs, pen and ink drawings, some of which have received awards. They are created by Cary. There is music: a grand piano, a Steinway upright piano, percussion instruments, guitars, and 2 drum sets. The light plays in the stairway, verandas, patio, and quiet, lush living room of shades of white. The furniture is old world walnut with marble tops, cherry wood. There are three distinct different wooden miniature chairs.
    The breakfast table has place cards, tiny salt and pepper shakers and is color coordinated with a different theme each day. Everywhere there is attention to detail: with delicate magnetized crystal glass charms. Orange juice is freshly squeezed; there are different Godiva chocolates each night by the bed. We had home baked almond croissants, omelettes, French toast, and fresh fruit.
    We had a wonderful time. It was as if we were in a different world of beauty. Thank you.

    Martha and Carl H. of Moscow, Idaho

  • 30th Wedding Anniversary. This B and B is more like visiting a gracious host's home than a traditional B and B. The ambience is warm, welcoming, and entrancing. The hosts are artists in many senses. The preparation of meals is second to none. If it were possible to give a Trip Advisor rating higher than five stars, this B and B would be it.
    Wayne and Theresa P. of Selah, Washington

  • What a great place your "little" B and B is! We haven't enjoyed a stay this much ever before! Thank you for your gracious hospitality and your selfless service to your guests. Obviously the grounds and view are amazing - but your sincerity and pure delight in welcoming your guests puts your place over the top! Thanks so much for everything - we want to come back as soon as possible!
    Carrie and Dale R. of Rockford, Washington

  • Many THANKS for making our stay absolutely fabulous! The room, the view, the attention to so many details, the yummy breakfast made us feel like we were royalty. Cheers!
    Inge and Rick K. of Corvallis, Oregon

  • Thank you, thank you, thank you! You have something very special here. Your kindness and hospitality is much appreciated. The location is breathtaking and your attention to every little detail makes it even more wonderful. Doing your "magic" to make Dieter's birthday week special was awesome. We sure are going to miss the beautiful sunrises and sunsets and listening to the waves from the balcony. This was the relaxing break we needed. Before I forget, the food is amazing! We'll be back!
    Antoinette and Dieter G. of Cape Town, South Africa, and Alberta, Canada

  • Thank you for making our first trip to Idaho special! We enjoyed the view and the extra touches for our 32nd Wedding Anniversary
    Frank and Donna B. of Florence, Mississippi

  • I feel blessed to have discovered Estate On the Lake B&B. My nine day stay felt like staying at a five star resort with the added benefit of a warm and cozy home setting. Cary's breakfasts were so wonderful I had to buy the cookbook to learn his secrets to making an unbelievable vegetable omelet. It was always a daily surprise to see how Denise would decorate the breakfast table overlooking the beautiful, peaceful lake, always with a unique and clever tablescape design. A friend of mine looked at the website and declared I was staying on a movie location set and she was right. The attention to detail was amazing as every amenity was carefully provided. I am not sure what I will miss most - the lake view from the balcony, the wonderful breakfasts, or the engaging conversations with Cary and Denise. I hope I can plan a return trip soon.
    Karen P. of Richmond, Texas

  • Thank you for making our stay so special. Your attention to detail is absolutely amazing! This was a wonderful way to spend our 18th anniversary! Thank you again for going above and beyond with your thoughtfulness and generosity!
    Matt and Lanna P. of Deary, Idaho

  • Thank you for making our 21st Anniversary a special one. We felt very taken care of and the details and thought put into making our visit memorable was awesome. We very much enjoyed the amazing food also. God Bless and thanks again!!

  • Thanks so much for your hospitality! We had a lovely time and will definitely be back. All of the detail and extra touches really made for a lovely getaway. Until next year!
    Claire and Joe of New Jersey

  • Denise and Cary made our 10th Anniversary very special. The grounds were amazing, and the food was fantastic. After a few conversations with our hosts, it was as if we were old friends. Can't wait to return.
    James and Sarah of Vancouver, Washington

  • WOW! Amazingly beautiful B and B on an amazing lake! Does it get any better than this? No, well, yes, only with amazing hosts. Loved it all. Thank you so very much for blessing us with a great weekend stay.
    John and Buffy of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

    Carolyn and Roland C. of Trail, British Columbia, Canada

  • Thank you for making our 5th Anniversary so special. We definitely have plans to return, and will be telling our friends and family about your incredible B and B. We cannot say enough about your hospitality and thoughtfulness.
    Rebecca and Sean M. of Spokane, Washington

  • Thank you so much for making my birthday celebration so wonderful. My husband sure earned many brownie points for finding this incredible B and B! From my 1st birthday surprise, waiting in our room, to the many that followed . . .! The gourmet breakfasts, great coffee and most important, the hospitality, all made this stay the best we have ever experienced. We appreciate your attention to every detail! Amazing!
    Neil and Juli C. of Bonney Lake, Washington

  • Our stay here was delightful. We have become B and B fans, but have never experienced such a completely luxurious experience. The wonderful views, the fantastic food, and the attention to detail far surpassed our expectations. This is a labor of love, and it shows! Thanks for the great hospitality, and the drum lesson! P.S. We are torn between telling everyone we know, and keeping it our secret place!
    Paul and Colleen T. of Polson, Montana

  • Thank you so much! You have a lovely place . . . superb! The property, the grounds, the lake, the balcony . . . what is there to wish for? Colleen and I had a lovely honeymoon here and are already thinking of coming back. We had a wonderful relaxing time. Thanks again!
    Daniel and Colleen of Alberta, Canada

  • We had a wonderful stay. Thank you so much for being the ultimate hosts and making us feel welcome. We especially enjoyed the breakfasts as they were beyond delicious!!! The French toast was divine and the eggs, they melted in our mouths. You are are very blessed to live on such a gorgeous piece of property. Thank you for sharing this gift with others.
    J. and R. of Colorado

  • What a pure delight to sit on the balcony enjoying stunning views of the lake and mountains!! The room was exceptionally comfortable. Stocked with everything from delicious treats, organic bath products, plush towels, I felt utterly spoiled. The hosts have given a new meaning to the word hospitality! They truly go above and beyond with terrific attention to detail. The rooms and grounds are lovely and pristine. The breakfasts are absolutely scrumptious! I had such a marvelous stay!
    China A., Southern California

  • You have made our 50th Wedding Celebration a very special and romantic event in our lives. Your attention to detail is above and beyond anything we have ever experienced. It was all executed with exquisite taste and creativity. We wish we did not live across the country so we could come back again and again. P. S. The Blueberry Pancakes are the best!
    Susan and Paul S. of Livingston Manor, New York

  • What an amazing stay!! Everything was perfect. I have never experienced a B and B quite like this one. The attention to detail and comfort is second to none! The room, with a giant lake view is so welcoming. I find it hard to leave. Just sitting in the window seat staring at the moon shining on the water was heavenly.
    T. A., Los Angeles, California

  • Thank you so much for making my "un-birthday" so wonderful!! Mike and I loved our stay and really appreciated all the creative details you both have added to the B and B experience. Anyone looking for the best of the best need look no further. The experience is memorable and affordable.
    Mary and Mike D. of Spokane, Washington

  • Thank you for the wonderful stay in your B and B. You made us feel like friends who were visiting your lovely property. The breakfasts were delicious, the bed confortable, and the views of the lake serene. The weekend has been totally relaxing. Thank you for being such wonderful hosts!
    ReyNell and Jarold M. of Golden, Colorado

    C. Adams of Los Angeles, California

    Holly S. and Bill R. of Everett, Washington

    Terri R. and Brad E. of Spokane, Washington

  • What a wonderful and unique experience you have created! "Created" is the right word, as it refers not only to the beauty of the environment, but to your personal talents as well. Your attention to our individual needs and privacy, as well as your trust and contributions to the environment were greatly appreciated. Thank you. We look forward to our next visit.

    Jennifer S. of Coopersburg, Pennsylvania

  • We have stayed in B and B's in many countries with many lovely sites - but no comparison to the views from your terrace, and the lovely artistic touches for the Breakfast place settings! Thank you for your wonderful hospitality - your efforts were most appreciated. We have had a wonderful stay here in Dover/Sandpoint. Highest recommendations for B and B lovers!

    Douglas and Heather G. of Vancouver, Washington

  • This is our 40th Anniversary and our children found this piece of heaven and gifted us a stay here. What a gift! We would have driven hundreds of miles to stay here.

The room - perfection, comfortable, decorated - filled with charm. Everything you can imagine you need, they thought of. Cary is a master at art, technology, and chef.

From the moment we set foot in your Bed and Breakfast, we realized we were in a special space and about to watch something magical transpire. You are both Renaissance people who are marching to your own drummer . . . never mind the fact that Cary helped me overcome my fear of trying something new, and Denise never ceased to amaze us with her knowledge of all things "design." This is a very spiritual spot, so thank you for allowing us to enrich our lives with the memories of 48 hours on The Lake.
    Doris and George of Oakland, California

  • We had the best weekend here at EstateOnTheLakeBandB.com - Denise and Cary are phenomenal hosts. They thought of everything and more than we even knew we wanted. Their B and B is immaculate and all the details are luxurious! Thank you so much for everything - we think you're the best!

The setting is amazing with a private beach and breath-taking vistas beyond that would make any person who appreciates the beauty of the out-of-doors be drawn here. Our wonderful hosts are both professionals, professors, and deeply artistic. All of this is reflected in the details (which are many) at EstateOnTheLakeBandB.com.

Flocks of ducks and geese have just arrived. There were even two deer inside the main entry gate eating apples fallen from the property's apple trees. Truly an idyllic setting.
