Are you looking for a great adventure getaway with your friends and family? Or that romantic getaway you've been dreaming about? This lovely dog-friendly house with free fiber-optic WiFi is nestled in the quiet heart of Sandpoint but still within walking distance to all Sandpoint has to offer. This quaint space also has a large, private fenced backyard, perfect for family barbecues, playing with your dogs, or lounging in the sun.
Located only six blocks from downtown, the city beach and the sparkling waters of Lake Pend Oreille, you'll be just minutes away from a restful afternoon in the sun, on the sand, or in the heart of downtown. Restaurants, coffee shops, brewery/pubs, grocers, and various shops are all within short walking distance. The Farmers’ Market is on Saturdays with plenty of food trucks offering a wide variety of great cuisine. Pack up swim gear on the bikes and trailer. Within minutes you'll be at one of the best views on the lake, all without struggling through summer traffic or the headache of parking.
The 1908 house is adorned throughout with a handsome wood finish, giving it a classic, old-fashioned ambiance. Keep warm in the evenings by stoking up the wood stove, then kick back on the plush sectional sofa. You'll be totally set up with a 40-inch TV, an AppleTV with Netflix and streaming capabilities for your favorite music and movies, and free fiber WiFi service with Amplify HD access points allows for very high speed streaming from any location in the house or back yard.
In addition, there are USB charging outlets for all your devices in the kitchen, living room and bedrooms, so no need to bring your chargers. Local guidebooks are provided to get you started on your adventure or to simply feed your inner armchair adventurer.
If you're not a foodie now, you will be after getting a taste of the fully stocked, beautifully equipped gourmet kitchen with a gas range and a double oven. There is an abundance of counter space, seating for two at the marble island, and a formal dining room to enjoy a sit-down dinner. If you're here during the summer, make the most of the weather by firing up the gas grill, grabbing a bottle of wine, and enjoying the large, fenced private backyard while gently swinging on the reclaimed ski lift chair or roasting marshmallows over the fire pit.
The master bedroom is furnished with a comfortable queen-size bed and a large window to let in the sunlight. A cozy second bedroom upstairs includes a second queen bed and two twins, which means that up to six people can enjoy the home at once. (For a small fee, you can bring both of your dogs along, too!) Please note that there is only ONE bathroom, however, making this ideal for a couple or small family getaway. There is a large sectional couch in the TV room and two couches in the family room allowing for plenty of space for family and friends to spread out. If you're traveling with an infant, a Pack ’n Play is provided in a spare room so no need to haul all of your gear with you on vacation. Situated on a corner lot, there is ample parking for your boat, RV or extra cars.
Perched on the banks of Lake Pend Oreille, Sandpoint offers a charming small-town vibe while also providing easy access to a dazzling range of outdoor activities. The house is less than five minutes from a wonderful bike trail that takes you out along the banks of the lake and up into the surrounding hills. Four adult bikes and a kid’s trailer are provided for your convenience, and this home is just minutes from a local bike trail. After you get back, cool off with a dip in the alpine waters of Lake Pend Oreille, or pay a visit to nearby Schweitzer Mountain, where you can ski, hike, mountain bike or pick huckleberries. Catch the bus to the gorgeous slopes of Schweitzer Mountain or investigate the amusement park rides at Silverwood Theme Park.
