If you like beautiful sunsets, expansive lake views, and some of the nicest people on earth, Hope is the place for you. On the North shore of Lake Pend Oreille and just 12 miles from Sandpoint, Hope was once a bustling railroad hub, which has since settled into two unique cities, Hope and East Hope. Be sure and ask the locals how to find Beyond Hope, really there actually is a Beyond Hope! Nearby on the Hope Peninsula is the David Thompson Game Preserve. You will almost certainly see grazing herds of whitetail deer and gaggles of Canadian geese. In the fall and winter, Bald Eagles can often be seen resting in the trees along the shoreline.
