Sandpoint, Idaho is a little out of the way, located in the panhandle of the state, but very easy to access and situated in the middle of some beautiful and fun surroundings. A visit to this little waterfront town puts you within easy driving distance from Silverwood Theme Park, Schweitzer Mountain, Farragut State Park, and more. In fact, if you’re thinking about an alternate route to Glacier National Park, Sandpoint can easily be used as a fun stop off on your way there.
The top draw to Sandpoint is easily the huge Lake Pend Oreille. This gorgeous mountain lake provides enough room for a phenomenal amount of water recreation, including everything from swimming or kayaking to fishing and boating. Finding a way to stay right on the shore of the lake is a great way to make your stay in Sandpoint the best that it can be.
Sitting right on the south shore of the lake, near where it empties from and directly across the water from the town of Sandpoint is Sleep’s Cabins. This is exactly the kind of lodging option you look for when you think of time away at the lake.
Sleep’s Cabins include several historic cabins built back in the early to mid 1900s. As historic as they are, they are also very updated and modern too. You can easily find yourself comfortable but still enjoy a very rustic setting.
For families, Sleep’s is a great place to stay because kids will have fun inside their very own cabin. At the same time, they will enjoy the freedom of being able to access the large grassy area directly from the front door, as well as the beach area that comes complete with both a shallow wading area and a deep swimming hole. There is a dock right there at the property too so if you are going to be doing some boating or kayaking, entry to the water is not a problem.
The facility is small, with just a handful of cabins, which means that you get to enjoy a level of privacy that larger resorts and hotels just can’t match. The staff and owners are very friendly too, as well as very attentive to any needs you have or problems that arise. There really is no downside to staying overnight right on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille at Sleep’s Cabins.
