For over 12-years, I operated my own business…’The Great Northwest Trading Company LLC’ from this location.  In July 1995, we hosted our Grand Opening in which ‘The Gentle Giant’ actor Clint Walker (who starred as Cheyenne Bodie in the 1950’s TV Series ‘CHEYENNE‘) and the lovely actress Donna Douglas (the Original Elly Mae Clampett of The Beverly Hillbillys), brought in Over 10,000 Visitors during a 3-day weekend festival  to this location from as far as Seattle & Vancouver, Washington, Calgary, Canada, Billings, Montana… Boise and Ketchum, Idaho… who came to our event to meet and have their photos taken with Clint and Donna, and pick up a Clint Walker & Donna Douglas autographed Poster (shown below at bottom), as a souvenir.

Before purchasing this property, I spent over a year and a half… searching for the ‘right’ parcel of Commercial ‘Highway-Frontage’ Property… from Sandpoint to Coeur d’ Alene.  This is it!  Excellent visibility and exposure from Highway 95.  Many improvements have been made to this property through the years, including  a professional-built loop-driveway that will accommodate several large R.V.s,  Buses, and Semi-Truck & Trailer rigs (at the same time), with three separate entrances into this property from Highway 95.  There is also a ‘Turn-of-the-Century’ Schoolhouse located close to the Highway that has the potential to be restored and become a Registered Landmark… or serve other purposes.

The County Zoning Laws permit almost any type of Business to be operated from this location.  It’s layout offers a nice, aesthetic atmosphere, with lot’s of room for the Family, Pets, Your Business, and for Future Expansion.

The Great thing about this Property is it’s Excellent Layout, Location, Visibility and Access from Highway 95, with room for expansion.  Located about 10-miles South of Sandpoint, and 35 miles North of Coeur d’ Alene, only a half a mile from Lake Cocolalla.  Sandpoint and Coeur d’ Alene are both Fantastic Resort Towns / Tourist destinations, offering all of the amenities that one could expect.  Both are located on Large, Magnificent Lakes, surrounded by Majestic Mountains.  

Nestled at the base of the Selkirk Mountains in North Idaho’s Panhandle region, and bounded by the Kaniksu National Forest, the community of Sandpoint can be found 60 miles south of the Canadian border and 75 miles northeast of Spokane, Washington.  With a population of approximately 6,000 residents, Sandpoint is located in a land of uncompromising natural beauty on the northern shore of Lake Pend Oreille (pronounced Pon-da-ray).   A spectacular, glaciated body of water 43 miles long,  with approximately 180 square miles of water, Pend Oreille is the fifth deepest lake (1,158 feet at its greatest depth) in the United States with 111 miles of shoreline, and was used for testing submarines during World War II (Farragut Naval Station), and is still used for testing scientific subs.  Its pristine waters are a major factor in the community of Sandpoint’s high ranking as a premier tourist destination, known for it’s World’s Record Trout and Mackinaw Fishing.  Overlooking Sandpoint is Schweitzer Basin, one of the finest, yet un-crowded Ski Resorts in the Western United States with 2,400 feet of vertical, 2,500 ski able acres, and a Nordic trail network.  In the summer there are golfing opportunities at Hidden Lakes and the Elks golf courses, as well as camping,  hiking, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, mountain biking, and exploring.  World famous fishing and excellent hunting are right at the doorstep and a myriad of mountain activities abound in both the Selkirk and Cabinet mountains.  Sandpoint, the County Seat for Bonner County, is an artistic and cultural community.  Sunset Magazine recently designated it as the best small town in the west.  National Geographic Adventure magazine voted Sandpoint one of the 10 best adventure towns in the nation, and the 2003 Money Magazine indicated this area as the top location for second homes in the U.S.   But what really reels you in is Sandpoint’s small-town sense of community, with the restored Spanish-mission-style Panida Theater and all manner of city-sanctioned excuses to lollygag (like Winter Carnival, the Lost in the ’50s nostalgia fest for muscle-car buffs, and Music festivals throughout the summer).   And then there’s the big-town lineup of restaurants: “The best place to eat in Spokane,” goes the joke about the city of 194,000 lying 75 miles southwest, “is in Sandpoint.”   Sandpoint has a true four season climate that is much more moderate than that found farther east in the Rockies. There is neither extremely hot nor cold weather.  Usually, there are only a few sub-zero days each winter while summer has equally few days on which the temperature rises above 90 degrees.  Nights are generally cool.   A great place to raise a family!!  Small businesses will find a helping hand in the Sandpoint Economic Development Corporation which operates a business incubator at the Bonner Business Center. The incubator installed the first commercial kitchen west of the Mississippi and has an extensive list of users. Bonner County Economic Development Corporation is also available for assistance on a county wide basis. The Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce and the Sandpoint Downtown Business Association are additional resources for entrepreneurs.  Spokane International Airport is located approximately an hour’s drive from this Property.
