Rent one room or all five rooms. Great for family reunions or a quiet get-a-way. Located 500 feet above the Schweitzer Village at 94 Crystal Court, Sandpoint ID 83864

The B&B 's new look has had a great response! Last year we freshen the bed rooms with new floral carpet to reflect the Victorian theme. The Snow Ghost Suite colors were changed to high light the carpet colors. The living room 15 feet (4.5 meter) bow window and corner fireplace make the room cozy, bright and warm. The Crystal Run, Big Timber and Enchanted Forest Rooms bay windows and comfortable window seats provide larger views of the ski runs and a great area to read. The covered 30 x 50 deck with full outdoor kitchen, fire place, one horse sleigh and hot tub are fun for everyone. The Snow Ghost Suite 2 balconies are up so high they provide huge views of the slopes. The guest garages keep snow off the cars!

Wake up to the smell of a delicious gourmet Northwest breakfast served with homemade pastries and homemade jams. Learn how to create delicious pastries with Marsha.

Eat in our bright breakfast sun room overlooking the slopes, a mountain of beautiful pines and Lake Pend Oreille.

Spend a cozy evening:

Enjoy the fire, Steinway Concert Grand player piano, fantastic view of the ski area or

Watch dish TV or

At the canopy pub bar with antique fire place or

Soothe those ski muscles in our outdoor hot tub enjoying the mountain air or

Sit around the outdoor fire place reliving the exciting runs of the day or

The huge ski room has lockers for snow equipment storage and a fire place to warm you as you return from the slopes. There is also another half bath right beside the ski room. A commercial washer and dryer and extra refrigerator space for your use are available near the ski room. The indoor parking places are allocated based upon booking date. Enjoy star gazing from the covered deck with telescope.

CANCELLATION POLICY: If the ski hill is not operating because it has not opened for the season or has closed early for the season, we will give you a 100% refund. Thanksgiving to December 24 can be a great time to ski. Our refund policy takes away the risk of the ski area not being open. Go ahead and book early in the year, you might be the first on the mountain.

About Marsha Bell

My husband, Mel, and I are both Mechanical Engineers and business owners. We love to ski, sail, fish, hike, bike, hunt for antiques, restore old cars and older homes and prepare unique foods. We enjoy meeting people. Guests come to stay with us and leave as friends. We both like to show our guests around the ski area.

Marsha Bell purchased this chalet in 2002

Why Marsha Bell chose Kootenai

We bought the B&B because it is right on the groomed ski trail. It is easy to ski in and ski out, you never have to walk in ski boots. YEA! Yet it is on the end of the road, no traffic nor grooming machines beeping in the middle of the night.

What makes this chalet unique

The property has a fantastic view, being the highest home on the mountain facing the ski area. It is a great location to watch the fire works, or other activities in the Village. The property also features ski-in ski-out access, with the groomed trail on our property. The hot tub on the deck is a fun place to be warm and have the snow flakes fall around you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for the hospitality. We really enjoyed our stay. Have a wonderful rest of teh season!

Great on slope location

  • 5 of 5
We booked our trip to Schweitzer and wanted to stay on the hill. The bed and breakfast location was great and the accommodations were fantastic. The best things were the covered deck with BBQ and hot tub, and the ability to use the kitchen facilities at night to prepare our own meals. As well, Marsha took us on a mountain tour our first day so we got to know our favourite areas more quickly than if we'd had to explore on our own.

Owner's Response: We always enjoy skiing with our guests. If they have not been to Schweitzer before, we try to show them around the ski area when we are available. Guests become friends!

What a wonderful place to stay for a weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I came to Schweitzer for a snowboarding weekend. This B&B is very close to the mountain. We boarded down to the lifts in the morning and took the free shuttle service back at the end of the day. We stayed in the Gypsy Run room which has a marvelous view of the mountain and overlooks the village. The room itself was clean, quiet, charming, and relaxing. The breakfast is more like a gourmet feast! So tasty and filling for a day of snowboarding. The hot tub, well let me just say there is nothing like a full day of boarding on the mountain and then relaxing in the hot tub in the evening. The kitchen and BBQ were very convenient for making our dinner with supplies that we brought. The hosts Mel and Marsha were so friendly and thoughtful. They gave us tips on everything from where to buy lift tickets, to the different runs on the mountain that would be fun our level of boarding, to fun places to eat out in the village and in Sandpoint. Suffice it to say, our weekend was thoroughly enjoyable and we definitely recommend this bed and breakfast.

Snowboarding Family

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were traveling around Idaho snowboarding and this accommodation was excellent for that purpose. The house is beautiful and quiet with excellent sleeping conditions. The breakfasts are delicious and just what you need for a full day of outdoor adventures. Mel and Marsha were extremely kind especially seeing as our travel arrangements continuously changed. They are excellent hosts with lots of information about the local area. One of the best places we have ever stayed and we look forward to additional trips back.

Big Timber

  • 5 of 5
I just spent a week with Marsha and Mel. They view from the bay windows in Big Timber was non-stop entertainment: morning sunrises, sunny slopes, night time grooming,... Besides being great chefs M&M are wonderful ski guides. Ski in/ski out access to the slopes and warm ski boots made my day. I can't wait for a return visit.
