About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

NEWLY RENOVATED! Come to historic Sandpoint, Idaho and enjoy our adorable, first floor condo that is conveniently located just 2 blocks from downtown! From here, you can ride bikes (2 are included!) take the Spot bus, or walk to local shops, coffee houses, the community-owned Panida Theater, City Beach, quaint bookstores, amazing restaurants, grocery stores, art galleries and Lake Pend Oreille's clear water. A scenic 30 minute drive will take you to Schweitzer Mountain Village, where there is everything from bluegrass festivals to huckleberry picking in the summer and world-class skiing in the winter. The Festival at Sandpoint's Concert Series each August is just a 10 minute bike ride away! There are endless opportunities to sightsee, raft, hike, sail or just relax in our picturesque town. Upon arrival, you will find a book we created of our favorite places to eat and explore to help you enjoy all Sandpoint has to offer. Sandpoint's free public transport, the 'Spot Bus', will take you just about anywhere in Sandpoint, Ponderay and Dover!

We have tastefully decorated this home-away-from-home so that you feel comfortable, and rest assured that cleanliness is of utmost importance. Fully-equipped with fresh linens, (we hang them on the line, weather permitting) with all kitchenware and paper supplies, you'll want for little. The oversized sofa makes a very comfy bed for a 3rd person, (It's not a hide-a-bed, however.) OR use the inflatable twin mattress provided. We also have a Graco Pack n' Play with organic bamboo sheets for the baby.

Included: Satellite TV, WIFI, DVD & VCR player, CD/Stereo player with Ipod dock, flat screen TV, Keurig coffee maker and coffee, beach towels/toys, puzzles, books and many more little things to make your stay easy and relaxing. We live just a few blocks away and are happy to accomodate you quickly if there's anything you need. Need groceries? Email me a list and I can stock the kitchen for you!

We'd love to have you be our guest! A 3 night minumum stay is required. Please note that we do offer this as a monthly rental during the off season; call for details!

About Kathy Chambers

Although Chris is a local, we have lived in Sandpoint for 23 years now as a family. We love everything this town has to offer, and love even more sharing it with visitors. Living just blocks away allows us to keep the condo very clean and well-stocked!

Kathy Chambers purchased this condo in 2006

Why Kathy Chambers chose Idaho

We purchased the building in 2006 and remodeled all 9 units, keeping one for ourselves. The building was long overdue for some TLC, and we were fortunate enough to have the time to provide that!

What makes this condo unique

Being just 2 blocks to downtown makes this a perfect location for those who want to experience Sandpoint like a local. Bikes are big here, so keep the car parked and ride everywhere! Why stay in a hotel where you must eat out every meal when you can cook in your own kitchen enjoying all of Sandpoint's summer bounty found at the Farmer's Market?

Local Gem for small party lodging.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect! This place worked out wonderfully for my son & my needs during our ski vacation to Schweitzer Mountain. Just a short drive from the resort & a 2 block walk from the downtown main drag of Sandpoint, 3 blocks from a grocery made it so convenient! This place would work great for 3 persons with 2 sleeping in the Queen size bed. Having all the amenities of home, including well stocked spices for cooking & folks able to leave non perishables for the delight of the next visitor makes the experience all the more inviting. Its clean & definitely roomy enough for 2. The covered car port was nice too with the rain coming down. We didn"t use it, but the laundry facilities right there are a plus. I would recommend this place to any couple. The owners were great about communications too.

A great place!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great one bedroom apartment. It was very clean and had everything we needed plus extras - thoughtfully appointed to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The location is good with easy access to downtown and the beach - an easy walk or bike ride. We enjoyed the two bikes for riding to the beach as well as exploring some bike/ walking trails. The only downside was that the unit is not air conditioned, but the provided fan made it comfortable for sleeping. It was nice to have laundry facilities on site. We would stay here again.

Quaint, beautiful, 1 bedroom apartment close to town

  • 4 of 5

Updated, attractive, well equipped. Everything needed to cook a good meal. Well stocked. Many extras for comfort and convenience. We were there for an abnormally Hot July week in mid nineties. There is no air conditioning system and we maintained comfortable Temps indoors by leaving the windows open at night and closing them in the morning.

The only drawback is the traffic noise due to the intersection that is quite busy with heavy trucks. I am a light sleeper and found the morning light into the bedroom window and the noise (when windows are open) to be very disruptive. Overall a beautiful, clean, comfortable stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your honest review! I have a few thoughts (and a solution) for the street noise. Sandpoint recently revised their downtown street directions, so traffic has been confusing to say the least! My opinion is that many locals are avoiding downtown and using arterials until things calm down a bit. I also think Sandpoint is experiencing an inlfux of visitors, more than usual. I purchased a sleep machine (white noise/waterfall/thunderstorms, etc.) for the bedroom in the hopes that it helps. If not, our next move is to get AC in the bedroom and avoid opening the windows altogether!

Very nice for my one-month stay!

  • 4 of 5

Kathy was a great hostess! The condo had everything you could possibly need for your stay and it was very clean. The only negative was the road noise since it is on a busy corner, so I ran a fan at night to lessen the noise. You don't need a car much since it is close to downtown and there are lots of hiking and bike trails around. Very enjoyable stay.

Comfortable, Clean, Conveniant Condo

  • 5 of 5

Nicely decorated condo which is well cared for with one good-sized bedroom. Kitchen is well supplied. Very clean throughout. Owners have given a lot of thought to making this comfortable and welcoming. Quiet most all of the time. 4 or 5 blocks from downtown Sandpoint. This unit is on the first floor of a two story apartment building. I would enjoy staying there again. Highly recommend it!
