About Jason Tankersley

This house was built for one thing: entertaining families. This is one of the most spectacular and peaceful places on earth. The house sits on a gentle slope overlooking Lake Pend O'reille and from the front yard there are views of Schweitzer Ski Mountain. This house features the best of both summer and winter amenities. Contact Book online or contact The Fairfax Companies in Tucson Arizona and our office can assist you directly with reservations.

Jason Tankersley purchased this house in 2004

Why Jason Tankersley chose Ponder Point

The moment we drove across the 2 mile long bridge crossing lake Pend O'reille we knew we had to invest in this community. We bought this property the second day after arriving in Sandpoint. The views are spectacular, changing from one moment to the next as the sun moves across the sky reflecting the different colors of the lake into the home. The house location could not be better. The home is located 5 miles driving or by boat from downtown Sandpoint and Schweitzer ski mountain is only 12 miles away. The lake is so warm you don't need a wetsuit in the summer and the fishing is world class. Skiing Schweitzer Mountain is great due to the lack of crowds and variable terrain. At Schweitzer there is rarely a line and with 3000 skiable acres you never need to ski the same run twice. This is truly a magical place!

What makes this house unique

Too many benefits to list. Almost any outdoor activity you can think of is within a 30 minute drive.
