Friends of our stayed here 38 years ago on their honeymoon. I don’t think much has changed since then. Maybe some furniture, maybe new carpet? The linens were shabby and stained, the bathroom (but for the mirror and sink) was old. To stand in the shower with the curtain closed, you’d have thought you were in a 1970s time warp. Open the curtain and it’s 1999. I can get past old fixtures and furniture as long as the place is clean, which it was, sort of. But I need a quiet room. Our room was next to the pool, so although the pool itself wasn’t noisy, kids and families running down the hallway to get there were. And the people in the room above us were heavy-footed. How do I know they got up two times in the night to go to the bathroom and then woke up at 7:00 am? Because I could hear every step. They were also “phone pacers” (those people who pace around the room when they are talking on the phone), but thank goodness they at least went to bed early.
It wasn’t the experience I was hoping for. Had the room been comfortable, the restaurant inviting or the pub friendly, then we most likely would have stuck around the Edgewater to become better acquainted with the surroundings. But as they weren’t, we didn’t.
If being close to the lake/beach is important to you, then this is a great location. I prefer being closer to the restaurants and pubs in town. I know where I'm staying the next time I'm in Sandpoint...unfortunately, not here. less
