Sandpoint is a great small town. I grew up there and I know I will move back at some point. You will easily find a place for under $300,000. Places right now are selling for next to nothing. If you are looking for a home in the town, I would look near the lake in town, it would be considered the northwest part of the lake (near memorial field and Washington Elementary School). If you are looking for a place with a couple acres and woods, I would look near Sagle, ID (it is a separate town, but only about a 7-10 min drive to sandpoint). I grew up on the west side of town (near the High School) and I loved it. It was far enough out of town so we could have land, yet close enough to run to the store to grab a gallon of milk.
While you are there I would recommend attending Schweitzer's Outrageous Air Show on March 5th and 6th. Olympic arialists and locals show off their talent in the village. I would also recommend, taking an afternoon to walk downtown and check out all the local shops and artists. There are some great places to eat as well. McDuffs is a local brewry with some really good bar food and salads. Then there is the coldwater creek wine bar across the street, it is a great place to hear some local music and enjoy a glass of wine.
I hope this helps. Let me know if you are wondering about anything else!! Have fun on your trip!
