Overview

About the property

MINUTES TO TOWN & SCHWEITZER

This studio apartment is attached to a main house of which my husband and our 3 dogs live upstairs. It is across a private dirt road from the railroad tracks that are active several times throughout the day and night.

(I provide wax earplugs for light sleepers)

We are 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!

About Danielle Caniglia

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.

Danielle Caniglia purchased this studio in 2007

Why Danielle Caniglia chose Idaho

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 lived.

What makes this studio unique

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.

Great location! Great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for an extended Memorial Day Weekend / Hubby's Birthday 2017. This house is very convenient to town and Schweitzer Mountain. The owners are very hospitable and everything you could possibly want is here. This is a lovely studio with an awesome hot tub. We would definitely stay here again. The train was not a big deal. We had trouble sleeping the first night but found ourselves barely noticing it the remaining nights. Highly recommend this home to others.

We had a busy 3 days in Sandpoint, so it was nice to have somewhere to go to in the woods to relax. It was very comfortable, very clean, and Danielle was VERY hospitable and helpful to what our needs were during our stay!

Welcoming and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We home-based it here to go snowboarding at schweitzer. It's close to the mountain for boarding and close to town for hitting a restaurant for a quick meal. Daniella and her husband were awesome and their home is great, especially the hottub!

This little studio was perfect for out weekend ski trip! It was exactly what I thought it was going to be! I was a little skeptical having never used this type of service before, but thankfully it worked out great!

Cozy, convenient and with great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is well laid-out with a nice sleeping area, full kitchen and beautiful bathroom. Moreover, there are plenty of supplies for the forgetful traveler: dishes, silverware, spices, toiletries, even coffee! This place is a tremendous value with a full-sized refrigerator, stove top, and oven which you won't find at hotels or similarly priced rentals.

The layout of the back deck and gathering area looks very nice (I didn't have the time to use them), and the hot tub is a must use (I MADE the time to use it).

The owners were gracious and accommodating - I would stay here again!

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.
