Recent Schweitzer Mountain property reviews

  • Couple traveling to area for a wedding + hiking in the mountains.

    "Enjoyed our recent stay! The condo was clean, well-maintained, comfortable and very homey. The location is superb - quick drive to the resort and close to Sandpoint as well. The listing description is accurate and photos depict the condo's appearance and amenities. From the time we walked in until the time we left we were very impressed. We would recommend this to friends and relatives. In fact we attended a wedding while visiting and gave the website to family. The owner was extremely helpful and instructions are posted at convenient locations in the condo. Plan vacation there again soon!!"

  • Cozy cabin for family vacationing

    "10 ski instructors stayed in the cabin for a 3-day weekend training in the Mt.Schweitzer. We had a great time in the cabin. It's very cozy. The kitchen is well stocked. We enjoyed the time in the hot tub after skiing. The cabin as all the linens, towls, shampoo and body wash in the closet. The cabin is located at the base of the mountain, short and easy drive to the mountain. We are looking forward to go back there again."

  • A good deal on a great mountain

    "Clean, simple condo with easy ski in/out location. Owner's very helpful and friendly. Do note that beginning skiers may have a hard time skiing back in, given the location along a blue square run, and it is a hike up from the base lodge. Interior could use updating, but perfect for a family with young kids not needing a fancy place. Kids loved the bunk beds and we all loved the private hot tub."

  • Beautiful Spacious Condo

    "Our family spent 3 enjoyable nights at the condo in early August 2012. It was clean, well stocked, and beautifully furnished. Located right on Schweitzer Mountain within walking distance to the Village. Only a 10 minute drive into downtown Sandpoint. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a scenic spot to enjoy the mountain or any activities or dining in Sandpoint. You will love it! The owners are helpful and prompt in answering any questions you may have regarding the rental. Would stay there again in a heartbeat."
