Sandpoint is on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille which has the distinction of being the 5th deepest Lake in North America. There are uninterrupted views of the Selkirk and Cabinet Mountains.
Within minutes of Downtown Sandpoint there are unlimited recreational opportunities. Sandpoint has some of the best hiking, biking, camping and skiing in the Northwest: there are three walking/biking trails right downtown. Schweitzer Mountain Resort offers year-round activities and festivals.
Visitors find the beauty secondary to the friendly small town feel. Home to a thriving arts community, festivals year-round, a variety of excellent restaurants, award winning wineries and breweries, Sandpoint is full of pleasant surprises. Historic yet eclectic the town is adorned with artistic murals and welcoming storefronts. Plan your trip to Sandpoint!
