About Us

Dan Blair
Lodging Manager

Sandpointers is a full service vacation rental management company.

My name is Dan Blair, I'm owner and lodging manager for Lake Coeur d’Alene, Hayden Lake, Sandpoint, Priest Lake and Kellogg/Silver Mountain areas as well as Spokane and Eastern Washington, and am here to help you find the perfect vacation rental.

I began my lodging career by building a 450 home vacation rental business on Maui, Hawaii. After selling to a major corporation I returned home to the Inland Empire and now offer my services to vacation home owners who want the same quality and success I provided to my happy Hawaii clients. Please call anytime. Phone: 208-627-5184
