Our Kitchen  is fully stocked.  We often come up to clean and occasionally stay overnight, so I am careful to review what items we have and what needs replacing.  Often measuring cups are broken so these are replaced frequently.  The coffee pot is relatively new and we supply the filters; however, we do not have a grinder, so bring ground coffee. 
 Our stove is gas and includes an oven.  We also have a dishwasher, dishwasher soap packets, and dish soap for hand washing.  Other items include:
 I also include a few packets of hot chocolate, cider, and microwave popcorn; if you love these items and consume them frequently, I suggest you bring your own.

  • A strainer
  • Numerous pots and pans
  • toaster
  • microwave
  • dish towels
  • grill tools
  • cutting knives
  • ice maker (built into the fridge)
  • filtered water (built into fridge--filter changed); note:  our unfiltered water is completely safe to drink and IMHO tastes just fine.
  • electric griddle
  • hot water kettle
  • cookie sheets
  • various mixing bowls
  • blender
  • can opener/bottle opener

Dover Bay Resort Amenities

Dover Bay Resort is a planned community with a fitness center, marinamini grocery store, and full bar restaurant called The Dish The fitness center has a gorgeous heated salt water pool and outside jacuzzi (which is not salt water); both are open year round, although in the winter often I have to call to get them to have the cover removed on the pool; it's pretty quiet during this time and often I'm the only one at the fitness center during ski season. 
Salt water heated pool

No lifeguards (ever) and no diving;  bring your own towels (there are four in the condo hallway closet beside the second bedroom for your use).  No dogs around the pool or inside the fitness center, either; sorry.

 There is a cost to use both the pool and fitness club, which varies depending upon the number of people coming and how long you want access to it.  To find out more information and to purchase a pass, call 208.263.5493.  I strongly suggest you contact them during working hours, M-F, rather than waiting until the weekend, as you may not be able to get a hold of someone.  No glass, but I do see people with plastic drink containers. 
The Dish has a full service bar and is open full time during the summer and limited hours during the winter
As for the health club itself, it has the basics--treadmills, ark-like step machines, weights, other various machines, and a yoga/stretching area with mirrors, mats, and large balls.  Nice restrooms and a shower (no towels provided).  There are televisions with cable for your use as well.
