Sandpoint cottage description

Sunlight streams through the many windows in this clean, comfortable, attractively decorated, four bedroom (+ loft), two bath home that is perfect for family vacations. Quality linens, dishes, furnishings and supplies abound, there are no hand me downs in this well stocked cottage! The large fenced backyard and deck is a safe place for kids and pets so you can relax under the huge willow tree or barbecue while the children and pets play in safety. Or sit out on the front porch and chat with the friendly neighbors. In the winter moose have been seen walking down the sidewalk in front of the house and 'pruning' the shrubs in the backyard!

This desirable Lake Street home is located on a corner lot in the heart of Sandpoint. The house is within walking distance to all the great restaurants, the farmers market, entertainment and shopping in downtown Sandpoint. A large health food grocery store is just a block away. A short five block walk to swimming and sunning on the Lake at City Beach! Or use the bikes that come with the rental.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: I have always loved entertaining guests and sharing my homes in Sandpoint is my joy.

              Why the Owner Chose Sandpoint:
              When I first visited Sandpoint in 2007 I was instantly captivated by its sophisticated simplicity. It is a step back in time to a simpler America but has all of the modern amenities travelers love….GREAT restaurants, hip wine bars, a thriving art community, live entertainment and lots of outdoor activities in the midst of beautiful scenery… a winning combination for a relaxing and exciting vacation experience.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              I have ALWAYS wanted to live in a vintage cottage and this sweet cottage makes my heart sing! I love that it is so conveniently located close to town, just one block to a large health food grocery store. When I am there I park the car and bike or walk EVERYWHERE! I love to sit on the front porch with a cool drink and some good friends or BBQ in the backyard with the whole family. It’s just the perfect place for a memorable relaxing vacation.
