Property description

This studio is attached to a main house. It is across a private dirt road from the railroad tracks surrounded by cedar, pine & aspen trees! It is cozy, inviting and serene. Along with all the comfortable amenities; 1000 sq ft back deck with an awesome tiki bar, charcoal BBQ, 65 jet hot tub with cool lighting scenes and a fireplace, bicycles, hammock and a fire pit for cowboy cooking. I have also stocked the kitchen with everything a cook would need. This place is meant for relaxation. Located on a half acre of land at the base of Schweitzer Mountain. A quick 10 min ride up the mountain (or a 2 min walk to the Schweitzer shuttle that runs every 30 min during season) for skiing, mountain biking, hiking etc. or 10 min drive to town for great restaurants, bars and shops.
In spring, summer & fall go Kayaking down sand creek, take a pend oreille lake cruise or choose from tons of other outdoor activities!
There is a DVD player with a small collection of DVD's for your enjoyment. 200 channels of satellite Cable is available. Satellite WIFI is available for e mail and internet surfing and it can be slow at times.
The main bed is a comfy queen and a day bed with a trundle bed that sleeps 2 (both single beds). The studio has a shower bathroom, kitchenette, TV, DVD. The studio can accommodate up to 4 people comfortably.
There are plenty of games, books, bring some DVD's to watch or choose from my small collection. I think you will truly enjoy your stay!

Car: Necessary

We are located just a few miles outside of downtown Sandpoint or 9 miles to the top of Schweitzer Ski resort. Downtown Sandpoint is a quaint town with plenty of shopping, good restaurants, bars, a great winery and brewery. Its a 4 seasons kind of town with boating, hiking, mountain biking in summer and fall, skiing, snow mobiling, snow shoeing, snow boarding and much more in winter.

Take a beautiful drive around the lake in spring, summer and fall to the many picnicking spots and make sure to keep and eye out for Big horn sheep and bald eagles!

Sandpoint is a beautiful setting to get out in the magic of nature and regroup, rejuvenate and revitalize yourself. In summer I love to take the Pend Oreille lake cruise that includes dinner where we enjoy wine and lovely food from a local caterer.

Winter time is the time to hit the slopes that is usually full of fresh powder. Whatever your game is Sandpoint has it for you.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I was born and raised in Los Angeles then lived in downtown San Diego for 22 years. I have recently relocated to Sandpoint. I am a restaurant owner for 17 years. I love entertaining and hospitality. I have traveled extensively throughout Europe, South America, Canada, Asia and the United States. I have 3 dogs, a German Shepard, a mini Golden Doodle and a Maltese/ chihuahua mix. All rescues. My husband and I and our crew of hounds live on property. We have created a cozy space to relax in, get some work done and to play in. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Sandpoint, ID, USA:
I visited Sandpoint 9 years ago for the first time and fell in love instantly. I looked around and saw a majestic lake, an amazing ski mountain and the wonders of nature all around. I was super impressed with the restaurants and great wine at the local winery. I have used this house as a sanctuary to get away from the antics of downtown San Diego where I live. I travel to Sandpoint at least once per quarter. Sometimes it takes a few days before I even leave the house. I just turn off everything and relax.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
I completely remodeled the place when I first bought it. I took pictures as to what it was (those are in the house manual). I have a great passion in creating a comfortable, cozy and inviting space. I liked that this house was just outside of town and there aren't many people around. Its a very quiet neighborhood. Its wonderful to sit out on the porch at night and listen to the silence of the night.
