The Lodge at Sandpoint
The Lodge at Sandpoint is a boutique lodge on 600 feet of waterfront on Lake Pend Oreille offering a total of 29 spacious rooms and suites, as well as two rustic cabins and a small house.
The Lodge at Sandpoint is dedicated to the proposition that "Life at the lake is the most fun of all." It was built to give its guests the sense of being in a private, lovely vacation home filled with art and books. During the summer, the massive Water Wheel and Pond at the entryway greet our visitors with an exciting cascade of water and cool refreshing spray. The Great Room features a high trussed ceiling, floor-to-ceiling windows and a giant fireplace. It is amply furnished and beautifully decorated to complement life at the lake and the mountains. Guests are invited to relax, sink into a big cozy chair, enjoy the spectacular North Idaho beauty and have fun. Views of the lake, the landmark Long Bridge and Schweitzer Mountain are breathtaking from the Great Room's balcony and decks.
Guest rooms feature luxurious pillow-top beds, plush linens and refrigerators, with many rooms also featuring gas fireplaces, wet bars, waterfront balconies or patios, and flat screen televisions. For guests who prefer two beds, some rooms are furnished with two queen or two king beds.
The Lodge at Sandpoint's additional amenities include: spaces for small weddings, private parties, and meetings; Creekside Lounge, a light and bright sun-filled room that features a river rock faced fireplace, an impressive Douglas fir slab bar top, and enormous windows that look out onto the lake; The Fitness Room has cardio and weight equipment to help guests keep fit and trim; Guest Business Center provides a computer with convenient high speed Internet access, printing, and a place to work.
41 South, a 150-seat full service restaurant adjacent to the hotel, serves dinner year-round, and lunch and dinner in summer. Many dining patrons during the summer will boat to the restaurant and tie up at the docks. It's the most romantic spot around for waterfront dining and watching the sunset.
Shopping, art galleries, antique stores, farmers markets, music festivals, car shows, boat shows abound in 100 year-old Sandpoint, located just across The Long Bridge. One can ride a bike along the bike paths, rent a kayak, or just stroll to downtown Sandpoint to enjoy the day.
Recreation abounds with hiking, biking, sailing, kayaking, fishing, boating, wakeboarding and waterskiing in the summer ... hints of snowflakes falling at Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort lure the skiers and snowboarders to slopes and adventure seeking snowmobilers to the mountains.
