About the property

Townhouse, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-11)

Our lake house is located in incomparable Sandpoint, Idaho. Sandpoint was voted the 'Most beautiful small town in America' in 2011 by USA Today and will blow you away with natural beauty, friendly people, abundant activities and a great food scene! Our lake house is an easy stroll from all the amenities of downtown Sandpoint but still has a private location right on your own sandy beach beside the beautiful waters of Lake Pend Oreille. Does your perfect vacation involve parking your car when you arrive and not having to get in it again until you leave? Waking up to 270 degree views of the lake and mountains? Mooring your boat on your own private dock (with boat lift) where your kids can spend the whole day and never get bored. Walking through tree lined streets of historic south sandpoint on your short stroll to enjoy a coffee, glass of wine or relaxing lunch? Tearing through huge powder at an amazing ski mountain and then returning to your lakefront retreat in town where you can enjoy the water, birds and lake even in the winter? Whatever the season or activity our 3 bedroom lake house in Sandpoint is the perfect home base for a relaxing, fun filled break. Sandpoint has a unique vibe that will draw you in and make you want to come back again and again.

Our lake house vacation home is right on spectacular Lake Pend Oreille. All the water sports, swimming and sandy beach fun you want is right at your doorstep. The house is within easy walking distance to downtown Sandpoint. Feel like a coffee? Starbucks, or one of the great local coffee shops, is an 8 minute walk. Eating out? Sandpoint is blessed with some diverse, delicious and affordable restaurants that are a few blocks away. Want to grab an ice cream? City beach is a 10 minute walk. Feel like checking out the cool local shops? The downtown business district is a short stroll. Other local attractions include Schweitzer Mountain Resort (20 minute drive), Silverwood amusement park (30 minute drive) and the Sandpoint Marina.

About Fraser Powell

We are an active family of four who all love the water, skiing and boarding. Our family time is a top priority and we have found no place we enjoy more than Sandpoint.

Fraser Powell purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Fraser Powell chose Sandpoint

We fell in love with Sandpoint & the Lake Pend Oreille area when we first drove through in 2006. The lake is one of the most spectacular places we have visited in North America and Sandpoint has an incredible relaxed and fun atmosphere year round. There are so many great restaurants and downtown is alive with great local live music.

Schweitzer Mountain Resort is an easy 20 minute drive and has some of the best skiing and riding we have found. Schweitzer is a real hidden gem and even on a busy weekend you will never wait long in a lift line.

What makes this townhome unique

Our professional and family activities really keep us busy and it is such a pleasure to go to Sandpoint, park the car and hardly need to touch it again until we leave. Everything you want to do is right at your doorstep or a pleasant walk away.

One of our favorite outings, and one we try and do every summer, is to take the boat down the lake to Hope or across to the Lodge at Sandpoint and have an unforgettable meal at one of the great lakeside restaurants. The late afternoon boat ride, sunset, dinner and trip back is always a memorable highlight.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Reviewed by: Gracey2011 from Edmonton, Canada

Reviewed on: 09/12/2013 for their stay in 09/2013

We were very lucky to book this wonderful property last minute when we decided to go on a road trip. Owners were very friendly and easy to work with.

We stayed 2 nights before going on to Coeur D'Alene but if it had been available we would have been content to just stay put. So relaxing!!

We prefer our accommodations to be very spacious, clean, comfortable, well equipped with all the extras and we were not disappointed with this property.

They have thought of all the little extras to make your stay enjoyable.

We highly recommend this lake house and definitely hope to return ourselves.

This is a beautiful home with a great view of the lake in Sandpoint.

  • 5 of 5

The beds and linens were comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with cooking and serving items. The house is well appointed and has lots of room for entertaining. We skied at Schweitzer Mountain but were glad we stayed in town for the convenience of shopping and dining out. We highly recommend this property!

Beautiful home, well kept up and unbelievably convenient!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th stay here. It is incredible and n the summer and winter with a spectacular view of the lake. Home is in impeccable shape with fun rooms, nice art and style of the art amenities. Love walking down town from the Home. Our only wish is that we owned it! Our kids seem to think it is their Sandpoint home - not wanting to disappoint them we will have to keep coming back - yeah!

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place for our Christmas and ski trip in memory of my husband. We had a white Christmas ( first for my kids and grandkids) and great skiing conditions. The accommodations are very attractive, warm, welcoming, and very comfortable. With days in the teens and twenties, the fireplace in the living room was perfect-- we spent great evenings around it reviewing our day. View is breathtaking. Christmas Day we watched young ice hockey players trying out their (new?) gear in a rink they'd made on the frozen lake, ice skaters too, and even some cross country skiers were shushing along the shoreline through the snow. Thank you for making this near perfect environment with the beautiful view available.

Fall Fun in Sandpoint

  • 5 of 5

Great weekend! We have been to Sandpoint many times but not in November but it was a fantastic time to visit. Quiet but still lots going on if you went looking. Good time for hiking, strolling through town and just relaxing in front of the fire and admiring all the birds out on the lake. We have stayed at the lake house before and this trip was as winderful as the others. Cool space, clean and so comfortable. Thanks for having us back.
