This is a quiet sanctuary (not a party place) It is one mile to a quiet non-motorized lake. Great for swimming, fishing, paddle boarding etc... 3O minutes to Sandpoint.

Please note (in the winter months Nov-April the outdoor shower is winterized and not usable. If you need a shower you can book an appointment at the main cabin up the hill from this one.) Thank you!

A beautiful place!

The Bird's Nest is a beautiful place to spend the weekend. Lori has included everything you need for cooking and sleeping. There is a extra little heater in addition to the wood stove that keeps the place nice and warm and the outdoor shower is wonderful. The cabin is well laid out, so although it's tiny, the space feels open. Perfect for two people. We had our dog, Simon with us and he loved playing with Lori's puppy Nevada, who was eager to greet us!

The cabin is located right next to Lori's home and a larger cabin that she is building. It's off of the road and feels like a little commune. There are beautiful hikes and trails in the area, which seems quite remote, but only a quick 25 minute drive to Sandpoint. It's very exciting what Lori is doing with her land and I'm looking forward to staying there again!

Lori's property was a quite, serene place ideal for getting away from the bustle of city life. Her permaculture set up lacked none of the comforts from home (her hot water for the outdoor shower heats up faster than mine!). Our site, the Bird's Nest, was clean and charmingly decorated upon arrival (with paintings by Lori herself on the wall) and the woodstove was more than ample to keep the space warm at night. We got to see lots of birds right outside our window as well as other animals just outside of her property. A truly peaceful place to unwind, I would absolutely recommend any of Lori's sites to other campers. The sites are situated in such a way that you aren't overlooking other campers, though you may cross paths with them during the day if they happen to be there at the same time as you (my boyfriend and I didn't have this happen as we spent our days visiting local parks, like Round Lake State Park which is very near Lori's property). If you are a dog person, you are also in luck as Lori has two VERY cute dogs, that was definitely an unexpected bonus! On top of being a quite, sanctuary-esque retreat, Lori's property is close enough to Sandpoint, ID that we were able to drive into town to try out the local restaurants (their food game is strong) on the couple of nights that we didn't feel like cooking (but the kitchen is well set up to cook if you prefer that.) Thank you, Lori, we had a great time and definitely hope to make our way over to you again!

Such a cute little cabin. We were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary and spent two nights at Lori's cabin. It has everything you need. Great place to get away and enjoy nature. We loved the outdoor shower and sitting at the cute table for two outside the cabin door.

This is a very sweet spot, Lori has made such a special property.

There is a lake just down the road to enjoy as well!

I loved the outdoor shower and the cozy cabin. 10/10 would stay here again.

A quiet, tranquil space nestled a cozy cabin with all the basics needed to recharge and enjoy a meal. We loved the outdoor shower and the trees that nestled the space. Lori was warm and welcoming!

We loved our stay at the Birds Nest! It was the perfect balance of nature and simplicity with the conveniences and little luxuries that made it incredibly relaxing, cozy and peaceful. Lori was so responsive and even though we never saw her, we felt very well cared for.
