About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

This downtown apartment is a two bedroom, 1 bath unit that has been totally renovated with stainless appliances, hardwood floors, and slate tile. The open plan between kitchen and living room is great for entertaining. The comfortable living room includes a large flat-panel TV and a charming freestanding gas fireplace. There is a walk-in closet with a washer/dryer, and plenty of closet storage -- including shoe racks.

Our location is ideal in downtown Sandpoint, within walking distance of City Beach, the Marina, all the downtown restaurants, live music, wine bars, and shopping including outdoor gear shops, a bike shop, and lots of gift and antiques shops. In the summer, enjoy Sandpoint's lively farmer's market just down the street with live music, local produce and crafts. Please note that the condo is right downtown, in the heart of everything, which is about as urban as Sandpoint gets! Our guests love the location for its convenience and access, but if you are looking for waterfront or mountain views, this is probably not the place for you!

Did you know Sandpoint has a free local bus? There's a stop only about a block away from our apartment, and you can ride the SPOT bus to the Schweitzer base for a ride to the village, stores in Ponderay, and anywhere else you'd want to go around the Sandpoint area. You can also access bike and walking paths within a block or two of the front door.

And while we offer a great location to walk or bike from, you'll also enjoy off-street parking for your own vehicle giving you freedom to get up to Schweitzer or access more remote hiking areas or day-trip locations.

About Charles Manning

My wife and I lived in this great apartment when we first moved to Sandpoint. it was once a restaurant and we completely refinished it to be a downtown metro-feel apartment that we could enjoy. It's close to great food and bars and it super comfortable. We loved being in the middle of everything downtown in this great small town!

While we lived in the apartment while we re-finished our craftsman house in south Sandpoint. We moved here from Washington DC and before that - San Francisco.

We'd love to have you as our guests!

Charles Manning purchased this condo in 2006

Why Charles Manning chose Sandpoint

We want to share this great location with others. Sandpoint is fantastic for skiing, the summer music Festival at Sandpoint, or just a summer vacation to enjoy our beautiful Lake Pend d'Oreille.

What makes this condo unique

This location offers guests a true Sandpoint experience in a beautiful, comfortable apartment. Miss nothing by being right downtown! Enjoy a fantastic day of skiing at the beautiful Schweitzer Mt. Resort, and end the evening with a great dinner with friends, a glass of wine at one of the bars, and a short stroll home.

Sandpoint is such a great town, and the benefit of being in the heart of it all is that you can take advantage of so much within walking distance: Rent a paddle board or kayak just across First avenue and explore Sand Creek; go for a run along the scenic Ponderay Bay Trail; visit Evans Brothers on Fifth avenue for award-winning coffee; rent a power boat for the day and explore the lake or go fishing; take a bike ride up onto the surrounding trails or do a grueling road-bike workout by riding up Schweitzer Mountain Road; walk to Italian, Meditteranean, or Thai restaurants, or enjoy the local pubs, breweries and wine bars. It's a lot of fun in Sandpoint, and when you stay in the heart of downtown, you can leave your car parked and take advantage of it all!

Right downtown, nice amenities

  • 4 of 5

The outside of the condo is a little deceiving. The inside is great.

Good location. Not much else...

  • 2 of 5

Location was great. Really as good as you can ask for if you want to stay in Sandpoint and like being in the center of the town. Close to lots of bars and food.

There is a pretty big open living room and kitchen. Tiny TV, but you're not really there to watch TV. Oven didn't work and we had to go buy a lighter to use the stove top. Tried reaching out to them, but it took them 15 hours to respond (reached out around 9AM and they responded at 1:44AM), and by then it was too late.

Primary room is decently comfy. It does have windows facing the street though, so it can get loud with drunk people at night (it did on our stay). Second room is small and needs more light. There is no windows or circulation in there.

WiFi is very slow. Also no way to play music so bring your own little speaker.

Price is a seemingly high, but I guess the location kinda makes up for it. A little upset about the oven and lack of urgency. If you pay this much, you'd hope to have everything working and if not, have some sort of response in a timely manner.

Owner's Response: Thanks Philip - and sorry again about the experience. On your items: - As discussed, the Oven wasn't working because the breaker flipped. I flipped the breaker back and things were working fine. I know that doesn't help you now, but it was a relatively straight forward solution and for the benefit of the review, I think it's noteworthy. - We try to be super responsive, in this case I was returning from travel and wasn't online. - I value your feedback on making music possible in the Condo. Thanks for the suggestion. As i mentioned to you directly, we always want our guests to have a great experience. I know you mentioned that you wouldn't be back in Sandpoint soon, but my offer still stands that we're happy to extend a meaningful discount for your next stay to make this less-than-perfect experience better for you in the future. cfm

It was a very nice property and would definitely return

  • 5 of 5

The residence was clean new and modern. It had everything we needed for a great vacation in beautiful Sandpoint. The air conditioning was definitely welcome with the hot weather and there was plenty of space for our family. The location was excellent and we found ourselves walking to the beach often to play tennis and basketball In was right downtown and close to great restaurants. A great place that I recommend to anyone looking for an enjoyable vacation

Nice Clean DOWNTOWN condo.

  • 3 of 5

Nice enough condo but overpriced for what you get. Won’t do it again. Clean, plenty of space, all the amenities. By far...LOCATION is its best attribute.

Also....the AC might be the BEST ever.

Dead center of down...can walk to most anything in Sandpoint.

Condo itself has a bit of a funky layout. Only 1 bathroom to share. Only one night lamp for both rooms.

Although fairly clean...still a tad rough around the edges.

TV’s are tiny and poorly positioned if you have kids or want to watch a movie.

As said before...nice enough place..great location. Personally will not stay here again for the price.

Fantastic place to stay right in the centre of town. Handy place to have your base while you’re in Sandpoint. Lovely condo with everything you need. Very well equipped. Would definitely stay here again if we came back to Sandpoint.

Awesome apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Was a truly great apartment! It was very spacious, nice furniture and kitchen, and very clean. The air conditioner was truly amazing. The location was very convenient, just a few short blocks from everywhere you'd want to be in downtown Sandpoint. Would love to return again soon.

(BTW, stay away from the Jalapeno's Mexican Restaurant... its food was very poor & uninspired which was strange since the size & decor of the place was good. The Hound had amazing salads & pizza, and around the corner from it is the surely famous Panhandle Coffee & Cone - became an instant fan of their homemade ice cream - especially the coffee flavored ice cream!)
