This Month's Testimonial:  “A Great Getaway”

Featuring: the Lodge at Sandpoint in Sandpoint, ID

“My wife & I celebrated our anniversary at the Lodge. Our room itself was very spacious, clean & comfortable. No road noise could be heard. The lobby was a great place to sit by the fire & read a book. The customer service was excellent. Breakfast was pretty good. All in all, my wife & I will return. The lodge is right on the lake & the beach makes for a great place to sit & relax.”
