Lake Pend Oreille

Come and discover Sandpoint, Idaho! It’s a perfect getaway any time of year. Tucked away in the beautiful Selkirk Mountains of North Idaho, just 60 miles south of the Canadian border, Sandpoint is a friendly small town–a gem waiting to be discovered. The scenery is spectacular and recreation possibilities are endless.

Sandpoint offers fantastic eateries and shopping as well as numerous cultural activities abound such as The Festival at Sandpoint, where nationally acclaimed musicians perform before a backdrop of the lake, mountains, and rising moon. Arts and Crafts Fairs, Winter Carnival, Lost in the ’50s, International Draft Horse Show, Wooden Boat Show and Schweitzer’s Fall Fest are just a few of the great events that take place throughout the year.

The Idaho Club, formerly Hidden Lakes, is one of Idaho’s premier golf courses. Moose and elk abound in the area. Schweitzer Mountain Resort attracts recreational winter enthusiasts from all over the United States, and Lake Pend Oreille, Idaho’s largest lake, beckons summer visitors. 1200 feet deep and over 100 miles of shoreline, most of it undeveloped, Lake Pend Oreille is our crowning jewel. Its deep blue waters and myriad of waterfowl and wildlife attract young and old alike. In addition to its stunning beauty, fishing, waterskiing, sailing, windsurfing are all popular sports on our lake.
