The scenic lakeside town of Sandpoint is located in the north of the state of Idaho, on the banks of Lake Pend Oreille. From the moment you enter this charming settlement on the two-mile-long bridge to the south, you are immediately greeted with one of the most attractive towns you are ever likely to find in the United States of America. This is a town where time seems to have remained stuck in an era where life was so much more simple and relaxing and this is one of the fundamental reasons why holidays in Sandpoint are so popular. Why not really discover that laid-back way of life for yourself and treat your travelling party to cosy and well furnished self catering accommodation in Sandpoint.
One of the truly great things about spending your holidays in Sandpoint is the fact that there is always something for you to do no matter what time of the year you choose to visit. The summer months will all tend to focus on the lake and surrounding countryside, with the most popular pastimes including white-water rafting, canoeing and kayaking, lake-fishing (there are some huge rainbow trout in these waters!), swimming and pleasure boat cruising; plus nature walking and hiking. The winter season tends to start here at the end of November and it is possible to participate in skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling and even ice fishing at this time of the year.
There are an abundant array of attractions and facilities to keep people happy within the town itself. These include a collection of shops, bars and restaurants for when you fancy a break from cooking in the self catering accommodation in Sandpoint.
