Sandpoint is perhaps the most charming small town in Bonner County, if not the entire Idaho Panhandle. Friendly shops, excellent dining, and beautiful scenery make Sandpoint a must-visit for anyone planning a trip to our beautiful area. From its early days as a logging and rail town, to the opening of the tourism industry, Sandpoint has a rich and interesting history.
Sandpoint boasts the only Amtrak rail stop in Idaho, which is fitting considering the town’s rich rail history. Amtrak’s Empire Builder route runs from Portland/Seattle to Chicago, and the most beautiful sections of the route begin and end in Sandpoint. Plan an old-fashioned rail trip and let Sandpoint be your destination!
The legendary Schweitzer Mountain resort is located just next to Sandpoint, offering year-round recreation opportunities. If you prefer a quiet, relaxing vacation instead of outdoor thrills, Sandpoint is the place for you. Take in a show at the historic Panida Theatre, or take a walk downtown.
If you’re looking to plan your dream vacation to Sandpoint, there’s no better place to stay than one of the relaxing inns of the North Idaho Bed and Breakfast Association.
