Sandpoint, Idaho...A huge buyers' opportunity in a piece of Paradise.

HOMES OF SANDPOINT (updated pricing!)


Sandpoint, Idaho is a destination "vacation" town in North, Idaho with giant water (Lake Pend Oreille) and a world-class ski mountain (Schweitzer Mountain Resort).  The beauty of Sandpoint is that it also is a "real" town with a long and colorful history.  (Not dissimilar to my "adult hometown" of Aspen, Colorado).  Sandpoint is the type of town that feels like home even when you are immersed in the spectacular beauty of the area.  You can choose homes in one of Sandpoint's Lakefront communities, in one of the pristine valleys surrounded by the majestic Selkirk Mountains or up at Schweitzer Mountain where you will be charmed by the quaint Schweitzer Village (to say nothing of some of the most prolific powder skiing in North America).

Sandpoint is a sport-persons' utopia.  High School sports always rank among the highest in Idaho.  The football team is a perennial powerhouse, the boys basketball went deep into State in 2009, the Sandpoint wrestling team is well known for its strength, the girls volleyball team has been a powerhouse in Idaho and on the national scene for decades, the tennis team has always been strong...the list goes on.  ...and, of course, there is the skiing and snowboarding.  These are not officially high school sports, but many of Sandpoint's best athletes excel each year at regional and national ski and snowboarding meets.

For us weekend athletes, there is a never-ending supply of opportunities to perform in Sandpoint and the surrounding area...weekly running, biking and swimming events, tennis leagues, ski races, boating/sailing, hiking...it is ALL here.  The Sandpoint motto to attract families that could enhance the local workforce is, "WE MEAN BUSINESS..BUT DON'T FORGET YOUR TOYS!"

 

  


Nestled deep in the mountains of Idaho's Panhandle, Sandpoint is 42 miles north of Couer d'Alene on highway 95 and about 50 miles from the Canadian border to the north.  Even though we find ourselves so close to the border, the weather here is fairly moderate...influenced by the Seattle coastal region just 350 miles to the west.

Hi Mary - That was actually the motto created by SANDPOINT UNLIMITED in the 80's and is no longer used.  I've always loved it.  I have the poster on my office wall.  ...and, good luck to you in Red Feather!
