Sandpoint, Idaho is an historic town of 7000 people located on the shore of Lake Pend O'reille. The lake is very large and is surrounded by the Selkirk Mountains. It's a magical setting and because of this, it has been written up by Sunset and Skiing magazines as one of the 10 best hidden jewels in the USA. It has all of the amenities of an endpoint destination including restaurants, shopping, biking, hiking, fishing, water and snow skiing, sailing, and much more.
Our condo unit #126 is a one bedroom unit with a queen bed, a sofabed, two tv's, dvd , and full kitchen. The condo inside was refurbished in 2010. Sit on the deck and the lake is 30 ft. in front of you--just walk down five steps and across the grass. People-watching is a favorite pastime for some. It can be a private and romantic getaway for two or maybe for a family of four. Two couples can fit but not very romantic if that is desired. You can tie your boat on the seawall right in front of the condo during the day but no overnight mooring. Sandpoint Marina across the street has boat slips for rent.
Skiing at Schweitzer is 20 minutes away with breath-taking views of the lake.
Please, absolutely no smoking or pets allowed.
If you need a larger unit, we have a three bedroom condo, also lakefront, vrbo #293790.
On the condominium grounds are two large swimming pools, two tennis courts, eight BBQ grills, a basketball court, and volleyball all spaced around a spacious lawn. Trailer/recreational vehicles can be kept on site for free. The entire complex had new siding, windows, and landscaping last year.

Jeanne and i first visited Sandpoint in 1976. Coming from California, we were not very welcomed by some of the locals--they thought we Californians would invade their area, and of course, they were right. I don't blame them since this area was so clean and unspoiled. Fortunately it has remained so and almost all of those who were reluctant to have people encroachment have since mellowed and have welcomed the traffic. We couldn't be happier with the town and it's people.
As for Jeanne and I, we have retired and can enjoy the area full time. Our kids and grandkids consider Sandpoint their second home even though they live out of state.
We recently built a home in Dover which is only three miles downriver from Sandpoint and therefore we can and do take hands-on care of our two rental condos. We are quite meticulous in their care and maintenance and expect that our renters will do the same.
