The 7000 square feet over four floors gives plenty of room to spread out. All rooms have private baths and most have bay windows with sweeping views of the Schweitzer ski area South Bowl.

Please call for availability as the calendar only reflects 'not available' when the whole house has been rented.

Rent one room or all five rooms. Great for family reunions or a quiet get-a-way. Located 500 feet above the Schweitzer Village at 94 Crystal Court, Sandpoint ID 83864

The B&B 's new look has had a great response! Last year we freshen the bed rooms with new floral carpet to reflect the Victorian theme. The Snow Ghost Suite colors were changed to high light the carpet colors. The living room 15 feet (4.5 meter) bow window and corner fireplace make the room cozy, bright and warm. The Crystal Run, Big Timber and Enchanted Forest Rooms bay windows and comfortable window seats provide larger views of the ski runs and a great area to read. The covered 30 x 50 deck with full outdoor kitchen, fire place, one horse sleigh and hot tub are fun for everyone. The Snow Ghost Suite 2 balconies are up so high they provide huge views of the slopes. The guest garages keep snow off the cars!

Wake up to the smell of a delicious gourmet Northwest breakfast served with homemade pastries and homemade jams. Learn how to create delicious pastries with Marsha.

Eat in our bright breakfast sun room overlooking the slopes, a mountain of beautiful pines and Lake Pend Oreille.

Spend a cozy evening:
Enjoy the fire, Steinway Concert Grand player piano, fantastic view of the ski area or
Watch dish TV or
At the canopy pub bar with antique fire place or
Soothe those ski muscles in our outdoor hot tub enjoying the mountain air or
Sit around the outdoor fire place reliving the exciting runs of the day or

The huge ski room has lockers for snow equipment storage and a fire place to warm you as you return from the slopes. There is also another half bath right beside the ski room. A commercial washer and dryer and extra refrigerator space for your use are available near the ski room. The indoor parking places are allocated based upon booking date. Enjoy star gazing from the covered deck with telescope.

CANCELLATION POLICY: If the ski hill is not operating because it has not opened for the season or has closed early for the season, we will give you a 100% refund. Thanksgiving to December 24 can be a great time to ski. Our refund policy takes away the risk of the ski area not being open. Go ahead and book early in the year, you might be the first on the mountain.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: My husband, Mel, and I are both Mechanical Engineers and business owners. We love to ski, sail, fish, hike, bike, hunt for antiques, restore old cars and older homes and prepare unique foods. We enjoy meeting people. Guests come to stay with us and leave as friends. We both like to show our guests around the ski area.

                  Why the Owner Chose Schweitzer Mountain:
                  We bought the B&B because it is right on the groomed ski trail. It is easy to ski in and ski out, you never have to walk in ski boots. YEA! Yet it is on the end of the road, no traffic nor grooming machines beeping in the middle of the night.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
                  The property has a fantastic view, being the highest home on the mountain facing the ski area. It is a great location to watch the fire works, or other activities in the Village. The property also features ski-in ski-out access, with the groomed trail on our property. The hot tub on the deck is a fun place to be warm and have the snow flakes fall around you.
