The lodge features 5,000 square feet of commercial space and a variety of amenities including fitness center, owners lounge, owner and guest ski storage and terrace with several hot tubs that overlook Lake Pend Oreille. The four-story addition, opening in 2014, will create 16 new two-bedroom/two-bath homes and four three-bedroom/three-bath homes.
Situated in the center of Schweitzer Village, White Pine Lodge offers fully-furnished residences, providing owners with a "turn-key" mountain home.
