About our home

Lovely two story waterfront house. Upper deck views of gorgeous PendOrielle Lake. Located 20 minutes from fabulous Schweitzer ski resort. Best small town living with wonderful local restaurants, city parks, mountain hikes and fish from our front yard. Quiet neighborhood with good access to all kinds of outdoor activities in all seasons. Summer activities include: hiking, huckleberry picking, swimming, use of jet skis (optional) fishing, summer outdoor concert festival featuring well known entertainers as well as the Spokane symphony, Classic carshow and rock and roll 50 entertainment in May. Winter ice fishing, skiing and cozy evenings around fireplaces. Views of wildlife, waterfowls including eagles outside the living room windows and frequently have moose wandering around the yard.

More about us

  1. Ed and I just retired. He as a clinical psychologist and I am a director of our local public health department. We are looking to have a few adventures and travel to other places. We have an RV and a family lake cabin nearby so the exchange need not be at the same dates as visitors come to our house.
    We would like to see Europe and particularly Norway. My maternal grandmother came from Bidne farm near Voss and I would like to visit this area.
    Yet we are interested in anywhere in Europe and then would extend our travels depending on what county we have an exchange house.Our younger son Jeff and grandaughter Lilianna age 10 may join us for a few days of 0ur trip.
    We had a wonderful exchange with a couple from Canberra Australia as well as a professor from Heidelberg and are excited to plan another successful adventure.

Sandpoint Idaho was recently named the best small town in USA. It has a thriving artist community with arts and craft fairs, local Panida theater with global cinema presentations, Banff film festival and live presentations.
Sit in the arena at the Festival at Sandpoint and enjoy music while the Osprey chirp and the moon comes up over the mountain while you enjoy your picnic dinner in August. Local fireworks over the lake viewed from our dock in July. PendOrielle Lake is a 45 mile long lake with great fishing and all water sports. Schweitzer Ski resort is 20 minutes and has fabulous ski runs.
There are many hiking trails in the nearby forests and lakes. A day's drive will take you to Washington state or Montana.
