  • Are pets allowed at this property.
    Hello! Thank you for the inquiry. We normally don't allow pets at Sunspot, but we can consider individual requests. What dates are you looking to stay with us and what type of pet do you propose to bring?
    Answered on December 3, 2021
  • Hi! I noticed that your chalet says it houses about 18 adults. Am I allowed to book for 22 people (kids and adults) if it is convenient for my group?
    Thanks for the question. Our county in Idaho sets the maximum number of guests we can accommodate at Sunspot and 18 is what we are allowed. We have helped several guests identify options for overflow guests next door or down the street.
    Answered on April 26, 2022
  • Hi, Could you tell me how far you are from ski lift and slopes. Thanks
    Sunspot is located a third of a mile from the two ski lifts in the center of Schweitzer's resort village - Great Escape and Basin Express. We are a two minute drive to the resort's upper free parking lot and a 5 minute drive to the lower free lot.
    Answered on November 9, 2022
  • Hi again! So I need to book for 22 people and I know your chalet limits guests to 18/house. What are my options to stay at your lodge? We might be able to divide the group into two with 15 children in one group and 7 adults in the other.
    We are can take 18 with us - any combination of adults and kids that works for your group. Our neighbors rent their homes and we have helped previous guests get reserved with our neighbors for overflow capacity. Some guests have also brought an RV.

Host Review Score

The Sunspot is one of the largest private lodges on Schweitzer Mountain and features 5 suites, four sleeping lofts, a Peleton studio with mountain views, and a completely remodeled kitchen. Sunspot is within walking distance to the Schweitzer Resort for winter or summer activities but optimized for guests seeking privacy and isolation with a dedicated office space, ensuite bathrooms in all bedrooms, and a ski locker and equipment room. Sunspot was fully redecorated and partially renovated in 2021 and 2022 to maximize comfort and convenience for a family gathering - a fully stocked kitchen with luxury appliances and table settings for 24, a private master retreat with a fireplace, Peloton, and dedicated work from home space, and 4 two-story secondary suites with ensuite bathrooms spread across 5 floors and over 3800 square feet. Sunspot is arranged to provide an optimal experience for large families, multi-generational gatherings, or a group of friends. The lodge includes a large dressing and equipment room on the first floor, designed with both adults and children in mind, to make suiting up for a day of skiing or biking easy and enjoyable. Sunspot includes its own laundry room.
Sunspot uses an entirely virtual and contactless system - remote check-in, electronic locks for guest access, and seamless transactions. We are close by to address any needs that may arise during your stay.
Sunspot is located in a quiet neighborhood just outside the hustle of Schweitzer Mountain Resort - the perfect location for a large family or gathering of friends to enjoy the best of Schweitzer Mountain from their own private retreat. Sunspot is serviced by the Schweitzer Mountain concierge shuttle during normal times (suspended for winter 2021), but we are only a two minute drive from the Schweitzer Village circle where skiers and bikers embark on their mountain adventures.
