Wow that’s a beautiful place! Actually we are looking at some properties there and was hoping someone was there that could do a drive by and snap a few pictures for us. We were just there a few weeks ago. Love it there. Thanks for your reply.👍

Live in Boise (moved from So Cal 3 years ago) ...Boise is many hours from Sandpoint. I hear that part of the state is very beautiful.

I’m not totally sure around there. Most lakes in Idaho are 35mph. I can’t say for sure about that specific lake.

Looks like all the good places to boat there have similar rules. 50 mph during the day. 35 mph on the rivers.

Like I said earlier, we were there a few weeks ago and we had a fire in the fireplace in the evenings and mornings. It was really relaxing. As far as speed limits on the lakes up there, I’m ok with that also. I done the fast thing on the water for along time. I’m ok with slowing down.😉

I believe all ID lakes carry a speed limit of 50mph. There are some other situations that lower that even more, and some lakes/rivers carry a lower maximum limit as well.

My family has had property in sand point, Hope Actually, for 40 years. Grew up on the lake most every summer. It’s one of the most beautiful lakes I’ve ever seen, maybe the most beautiful. Crystal clear water too. It’s only warm / hot up there for 2 months and then it’s cool and straight freezing in the winter. Awesome area. There’s a couple DCB’s and an eliminator I believe as well
As a guy that has a Summer house there who has a cigarette gladiator. There’s “speed limits” on the lake but they’re not enforced unless you’re being an idiot. I was actually talking with a couple guys from up that way and they want to organize a poker run on pend orielle in the near future. We plan on towing the cig up there maybe next summer if I can figure it out logistically.

We were in Sandpoint all last week and spent a lot of time touring all of Coeur d' Alene and Sandpoint and bought 2 lots at The Idaho Club in Sandpoint and plan to start building a retirement home there soon. We have been searching all over the US for our retirement destination and Sandpoint/Lake Pend was it for us. My father lives in Sisters OR and that was a close second but Sandpoint had more to offer in my opinion. We also took a hard look at Martis Camp near Truckee but in the end was too expensive and in Calif which we really want out of Calif and to move into a more tax friendly state for retirement.

IMHO, The Idaho Club has so much to offer and anyone that is interested in Northern Idaho should check it out, there are only approx 60 lots left of 300 in that community, centered around a Nicklaus signature course and they are breaking ground on a private lakefront marina/ club house with private docks for members. I believe this community could be the next Martis Camp type of development. It provides a gated/ private community with secluded lots on acreage with tremendous views of lake Pend and Schwitzer mountain. You are welcome to PM me and I will give you some contacts there.

I too would like to talk to anyone that has a home/experience in that area to pick their brain and if anyone has some references on a design build contractor that would be great!

Relative to the 50 MPH speed limit that is true, that said, this is a huge lake with plenty of remote open water to run a boat without concern for a speed limit....

That's great. This is where we are looking as well. We might be neighbors soon!

Lake Pend Orreille is amazing as are all of the lakes in the pacific northwest! Sandpoint is a beautiful little town! We moved up here from so cal in 09 and have not regretted it at all. We currently live in Spokane and our business, Legend Performance Marine, is in Liberty Lake. The performance boat scene is growing rapidly up here due to all the people moving out of california. The lakes due have speed limits but if you are reasonable and refrain from getting on it in the busy parts of the lakes, you wont get bothered. We are definetly trying to put on a poker run next year on Lake Pend Oreille. Any of you RDP'ers make your way up here with your boats next year, let me know and we will get together. I can help you out with where to go, launching, places to stay etc.

Right on and it would be great to move into an area and have neighbors that share interests! Jeff Gove is the local PGA pro and realtor we worked with there, he is awesome!

Lots F18 and F19 are gone though.... they be ours. Below us placing the sold signs on the lot plots and a few of us onsite

Yes Jeff was very nice to talk with. Looks like you bought on the other side of the highway. We are looking at 2 different lots 1 next to the river and the other on the lower Pack River Rd. We were there 3 weeks ago. Golf course looked awesome. Wanted to play but like always we just ran out of time!

We did buy on the other side of the hwy, we really wanted a remote lot that had a lake view with room for a home and big garage. We are marrying both lots together to do that.

Not sure if you know it but membership to the golf club is included in the lot price, we did not learn of that until signing. Also the $10k sewer tap in is also included. Those were 2 nice bonuses we learned of.

My grandparents have a place right one the water up there they are in sagle which is about 20 min from standpoint but still on lake pend oreille. I believe there is a speed limit but we have never had an issue he has a 21 Daytona and we run down the lake at 75 80 no issues. There is also a m35 that runs that lake most of the summer I have never seen him doing over a 100 but most of the time looks to be running faster then 50. We go up for a week every summer and ski and wakeboard it’s a beautiful lake. Good fishing on it as well.

Thank you FMO24 --- Yes I am a Realtor up here. I moved here about 4 years ago from California. The only thing I miss down there is the Ocean.
Yeah it snows and gets cold here but with what the Libs have done with California the fantastic weather was no longer worth it. In the Coeur D Alene area it is Trump land and they proudly display their Trump Flags on houses and vehicles. Our prices on houses have gone quite a bit due to people leaving other states.
