The Town


Found at the base of Schweitzer Mountain, Sandpoint is emerging as the new “It Town” for Western mountain getaways.

This lively arts haven has incredible local cuisine, great regional wines and an eclectic collection of boutique shops. Add to that, a full calendar of events such as the Winter Carnival and Summer festivals, along with the acclaimed Panida Theater’s art-house films and local theatrical productions, and you have a place recognized as one of the “Top Ten Small Towns in the Western U.S.” by Sunset Magazine.

The Water


It is simply not the Pacific Northwest without the water. In the greater Sandpoint area that means a pristine, wild waterscape attracting outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds, whether it is anglers searching for big ribbon fish; kayakers cruising the Clark Fork River; or, wake-surfers and water-skiers chasing high-speed thrills on Lake Pend Oreille.

The Sky


The Heavens shine brightly over Sandpoint. From mountain top sunrises, stunning sunsets and serene, starry nights; a simple look to the sky can captivate a moment. It’ is even common for the night sky to put on a real light show, when the Northern Lights appear in all of there spectacular glory.

‘As tempted as you’ll be to linger in town, the majestic Selkirk Mountains exert a gravitational pull.’
