The Sanders Beach neighborhood in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho encompasses the area south of Sherman Avenue between 8th and 19th Streets, extending south to Lake Coeur d'Alene.
Sanders Beach consists of a mix of 100-year-old cottages that have been loved and remodeled, 1950s-era homes, and new homes where the owners have razed the original structure and built their modern dream home. It includes waterfront properties, and from time to time a vacant lot will show up on the market.There are also some upscale condos and duplexes.
One of the main assets of Sanders Beach is the stellar location. It lies at the foot of scenic Tubbs Hill, with its beaches and hiking trails. You're walking distance from the shops, cafes and restaurants downtown.
Then there are the events on Sherman Avenue, from Car d'Lane and Live at Five to parades and the Christmas lighting ceremony. McEuen Park is minutes away. And, of course, there's beautiful Lake Coeur d'Alene.
In June, the streets of Sanders Beach are filled with spectators as the Ironman Triathlon route passes through the neighborhood. Every New Years Day, Sanders Beach is the setting for the annual Polar Bear Plunge. The Centennial Trail runs through Sanders Beach, so you can hop on your bike and be at Riverstone, the Kroc Center, or winding your way along the Spokane River or the lake.
The maple-lined streets wind past beautiful vintage homes that show a pride of ownership. Jewett House, perched on the edge of the beach, is a popular place for weddings.
In the winter, kids sled down the hill at 14th Street and Lost Avenue. And throughout the year, you'll see wildlife such as deer and turkey pass through.
