"How Do You Enjoy the Great Outdoors in Sandpoint, ID?"

In the panhandle of Idaho, just 60 miles south of British Columbia, Canada, Sandpoint, Idaho, has been named the “most beautiful small town” in the United States, for good reason. From the shores of Lake Pend Oreille (pronounced “pond-o-ray”) to the Selkirk, Cabinet, and Bitterroot mountain ranges, Sandpoint is a year-round travel destination for visitors from all walks of life. Even 29-year-old Theodore Roosevelt visited Sandpoint in 1888, hunting for caribou in the Selkirk Mountains and noting the town's “rough and tumble” character. More from this guide...

When Is the Best Time to Visit Sandpoint, ID?

With all of its natural beauty, there is an abundance of outdoor activities to enjoy in Sandpoint. In fact, the town's motto, “What a beautiful pace,” exemplifies both its splendor and its laid-back small-town vibe. The best time for winter sports enthusiasts to visit is from early December to late March, when an average of 61 inches of snow falls in the area, allowing for skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, and other cold-weather pastimes. Visitors in January will enjoy the lowest rates, making it the best time to engage in snow-related activities.

For those who enjoy more temperate weather, summer in Sandpoint is hard to beat. From June through August, temperatures rarely reach above the low 80s with almost no humidity, resulting in comfortable weather for all visitors and perfect for water sports, fishing, hiking, or horseback riding. July is the height of the season for both tourists and hotel rates, so perhaps consider a visit in spring or fall instead. Just be sure to pack an umbrella, as cooler temperatures may be accompanied by an increased chance of rain.

What Are the Best Hotels in Sandpoint, ID?

Any hotel search in Sandpoint, Idaho begins with the Selkirk Lodge at the state's largest ski resort, the 2,900-acre Schweitzer Mountain Resort. This independently-owned retreat is considered by many to be an outstanding family-friendly resort that also happens to host some of the best skiing in Idaho. From the top of the Selkirk Mountains, Schweitzer overlooks the town of Sandpoint and offers stunning views of Idaho, Washington, Montana, and Canada. In the summer, the ski resort becomes a prime location for mountain biking, ziplining, and even picking huckleberries, the state fruit of Idaho.

Amenities such as ski-in/ski-out access, flat-screen televisions with DVD players, memory foam beds with down comforters, complimentary Wi-Fi, free underground heated parking, and two restaurants, tennis, and spa services on-site make Selkirk Lodge an enjoyable hotel, regardless of the season.

Sandpoint's cozy, tucked-away location may not lend itself to a full-blown luxury hotel experience, but if you're flying into Spokane, Washington, on your way to Sandpoint, consider the Centennial Hotel. Fronting the Spokane River, this hotel is just 10 minutes from Spokane International Airport and offers luxury-type amenities such as premium bath products, an outdoor pool, and pillowtop beds, for a price that won't break the bank.

In the Spokane City Center, another option is the Doubletree by Hilton, just 12 minutes from the airport. The outdoor seasonal pool, Eforea Spa, and Doubletree's famous warm chocolate chip cookies make for an indulgent stay on your way to Sandpoint.

Yet another hotel offering the AAA discount is the Best Western Edgewater Resort.

Another good value that provides guests with a different perspective is the Clark Fork Lodge, just a few minutes' drive from Sandpoint around Lake Pend Oreille.

What Are the Top Visitor Activities in Sandpoint, ID?

Entering Sandpoint from the south, you cross Lake Pend Oreille via the Long Bridge and see your first spectacular, panoramic views of Schweitzer Mountain, the Selkirk Mountain range and the town of Sandpoint itself. The bridge is even part of the Long Bridge Trail, a five-mile walking and biking trail that is wheelchair accessible. Other trails, such as Mineral Point and Gold Hill, provide a variety of activities at different intensity levels for both hikers and bikers.

For those who would rather drive, the International Selkirk Loop is a 280-mile tour through Idaho, Washington, and even Canada. It encompasses two national scenic byways: Pend Oreille and Wild Horse Trail. And lake lovers can enjoy Lake Pend Oreille with a themed cruise, such as sunset dessert cruise, dinner cruise, or wine tasting cruise.

Back on land, visitors can peruse the Cedar Street Bridge Public Market (inspired by Italy's Ponte Vecchio), visit Pend d'Oreille Winery or MickDuff's Brewing Company, or attend special events such as the Sandpoint Winter Carnival, the Idaho State Draft Horse International Show, and the annual “Lost in the '50s” Car Show. The classic Panida Theater (named for the PANhandle of IDAho), built in 1927, has held entertainment events since the vaudeville era and currently hosts a variety of concerts, films, and dance performances, while the Pend Oreille Arts Council hosts the annual ArtWalk and Arts & Crafts Fair (which recently moved from City Beach to downtown).

From these artistic endeavors to the burgeoning culinary scene to the plethora of year-round outdoor activities available, Sandpoint has something that will appeal to visitors of all ages and interests. The town truly is a gem in the Gem State of Idaho.
