Hope Idaho on the North shore of Lake Pend Oreille

Picture perfect sunsets and expansive lake views dotted with islands, is how most people remember Hope. Just 12 miles from Sandpoint, on the North shore of Lake Pend Oreille. Hope found its begining with the building of the Northern Pacific Railroad which has since settled into two unique cities. Hope and East Hope and the name I love Beyond Hope on the Sam Owen Game preserve on the Hope peninsula.In the height of its time, Hope was a bustling town of 3000. Quite a bit of the labor to make the railroad were Chinese, brought over under 25 year contracts, Once the railroad was finished many made their home in Hope. The Historic Hotel Hope, was built by Joseph M. Jeannot in 1897 and still watches over Lake Pend Oreille. In the basement are the tunnels that once allowed guests to go to the railway station. Hotel Hope has seem many faces over the years, including Teddy Roosevelt, Bing Crosby, J.P. Morgan, and Gary Cooper.  Hotel Hope is for sale right now.  Today the town isn’t nearly as full, but you can get a great meal on the floating restraunt or rent a boat at the Hope Marina. Just beyond the marina on the peninsula is the Sam Owen Campground, with over 80 campsites, a wonderful beach, and boat ramp, Sam Owen ranks as one of North Idaho’s finest settings. You will want to drive slow through the area as hundreds of whitetail deer make this preserve their home. In the fall and winter Bald Eagles are often seen watching the water for their next meal. See Hope Idaho homes for sale If you are looking for commercial space to live and work be sure to check out the new listing on 218 W.

Small town of Clark Fork Idaho on the scenic byway


Photo taken by Sam Silverhawk overlooking Derr Island
Clark Fork
When coming in from Montana, Clark Fork Idaho is the port of entry to the gorgeous Pend Oreille Scenic Byway along Highway 200. Clark Fork is a small town with the population of 578 but has always been a draw for people seeking the peace and quite that mountain lifestyle has to offer. A large portion of the land is owned by the state and provide the perfect play ground for outdoor recreation.   The most prominent feature Clark Fork, Idaho is the clark Fork river which feeds Lake Pend Oreille the largest lake in Idaho. Much of the area was formed by glaciers and catacalizmic floods. Just about where the Cabinet Gorge dam now stands was a mile high ice dam which formed the Great Lake missoula. (which was the size of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario combined.) The ice dam failed repeatedly with each glacial advancement, causing cataclysmic floods that swept through Idaho and Washington and Oregon. These towering walls of water and glacial ice moved at such tremendous speeds that researchers believe the lake may have empties in as little as 2 to 3 days.Our first inhabitants were the Flathead indians. Meriweather Lewis and William Clark explored the area during the 1806 Lewis and Clark Expedition. In 1864 Northern Pacific Railroad started construction on a railroad line between Lake Superior and Puget Sound. In 1881 construction on the transcontinental line through the Bitterroot and Cabinet Mountains had begun and with the railroad the towns of Clark Fork and Hope were formed.In 1916 a bridge was constructed over the Clark Fork River and ridding the area of the need to operate a ferry. Located at the northeast end of Lake Pend Oreille on the Clark Fork River, this small but active community hosts a full range of outdoor activities, restaurants, and lodging. The Cabinet Gorge dam is just upstream and supplies power to the area. Also upstream is the Cabinet Gorge fish hatchery, designed to handle 20 million Kokanee salmon annually. Clark Fork offers great fishing, wildlife and bird watching, Mountain Biking, Miles of National Forest Service Trails and small town friendliness.
