Looking east toward Montana this is the mouth of Bottle Bay. This is a very desirable area to live and is only a few minutes to town by boat or a short drive by car. Great fishing, and water skiing can be found in the secluded bay. Off to the right is Gold Mountain which is a favorite for mountain bikers and hikers, and for incredible sunsets. It offers unspoiled views of Sandpoint, Schweitzer and the jagged peaks of the Selkirk Mountains to the north. Bottle Bay is a residential area with beautiful homes as well as commercial property on North Idaho's most beautiful lake.
