About the property

One bedroom one bath condo on the banks of Lake Pend Oreille

Ready to get away from it all? You've found the right spot. Just pack your clothes and bring your favorite foods - everything else is provided at this wonderful remodeled condo. Sandpoint has been voted most beautiful small town by USA Today and Rand McNally - and this is a clean and licensed unit to kick your feet up and enjoy everything our town has to offer.

As you enter the unit, you will find a fully equipped kitchen featuring new granite countertops and oak cabinets. All appliances are new and stainless steel. The stove and refrigerator are Kenmore Elite and the dishwasher is a Botsch. The living room features ample seating for conversation or watching a movie on a 46" Smart HDTV Samsung equipped with cable and Wi-Fi for streaming. Seating is available for four at the granite countertop for mealtime. In our bright and airy bedroom you will find a queen size bed with a new mattress. The bedroom is also equipped with air conditioning and a 32" Smart HDTV Samsung. Additional sleeping for two on a convertible sofa sleeper with a new memory foam mattress.

Amenities include, two community pools, tennis courts, basketball court, and volleyball court. Additional amenities in the unit include AC in the bedroom, Wi-Fi, games, an iPod dock and charger for your own sweet tunes, and washer/dryer.

Our location is great as its a short walk to the City Beach, great local restaurants, live music, wine bars and local shopping. You will also find gift shops, antique shops, and rental shops for bikes, jet skis and boats.

In the summer months beginning in May, enjoy Sandpoint's farmer's market at Farmin Park next to the Jeff Jones Town Square. There, you can enjoy live music, local produce and crafts. And lets not forget other summertime favorites in Sandpoint, including Lost in the 50's car show (3rd weekend of May), a hometown 4th of July celebration including parades and variety show at the city beach. The Pend Oreille Arts council hosts the annual Arts and Craft Show in August. You'll also want to check out the music line-up for the Festival at Sandpoint that takes place on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille in August.

Even though most everything in Sandpoint is in within walking distance, Sandpoint has a local bus. There's a stop only about a block away from our apartment, and you can ride the SPOT (Selkirks-Pend Oreille Transit)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.

Nearby attractions include the City Beach, Schweitzer, Silverwood Theme Park and Boulder Beach Water Park.

Whether you are planning a family vacation or a retreat weekend, this beautiful condo will make you feel like you are in a five star resort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo is delightful and in the perfect location. Easy to find and an easy two block walk to town. Walking and running paths are very close. The condo is outfitted with everything we needed and very comfortable.

Comfy, Clean and Considerate!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were visiting Sandpoint for my son's wedding and were totally pleased with The Gem by the Lake accommodations! This condo home felt just like that - a HOME, complete with everything we needed to relax (during the few minutes we could!), prepare food to take for various family functions and even iron 72 recalcitrant cotton napkins for rehearsal dinner! We truly appreciated the cleanliness and order of the condo, in addition to all the supplies and convenience items the owner provided. Even the kitchen knives were respectably sharpened, which came in handy while preparing appetizers for our 60+ guests at rehearsal dinner! It seemed that they had truly thought of everything a traveler might need while away from home - just like a good friend would provide if we had been visiting them. Also, the location was ideal for our purposes - with events ranging in distance from The Barn at Jewel Lake to The Birds of Prey boat tour to visiting family members in the area.

The only drawback to our unit was noise transmission from the floor above. We were surprised we could hear most every footfall from our upstairs neighbor (but no voices). The only suggestion we have is upgrading that most inhospitable toilet paper! Mahalo from Hawaii!
