Why the Owner Chose Sandpoint: There's just no better place on earth to relax, unwind and spend precious time together, than at the water. When my father passed, my dream became to turn his cottage into a place where families, (ours included), could be together and have the time of their lives, in a beautiful wholesome setting with very little effort. We feel we have accomplished this. My father would be pleased.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Johnnie's Cottage is the perfect balance between a private secluded getaway and a sightseers paradise. Conveniently located just 1.5 paved miles from hwy#95.
