Bonner County is located in the northern panhandle of Idaho in a land of magnificent lakes, mountains, forests and vibrant communities. The seat of county government is Sandpoint, but they serve residents from Clark Fork near the eastern border, to Priest River and Oldtown to the western county border. Our unique location, beautiful landscape, diversified economy, and exceptional human resources make Bonner County a wonderful place to live, work, do business and visit.
Summer, fall, winter, spring … do you love them all? If you enjoy the year’s four distinct seasons, Bonner County is the perfect place to call home. Summer is sunny and yet very pleasant, with highs in July and August averaging in the high 80s. Our spectacular fall season is renowned for its crisp days and showy color, while winter is a time when Bonner County transforms into an outdoor play land with snowy vistas and brisk temperatures that bring out the adventurer in all of us. And finally, spring’s arrival is always welcome as wildflowers make their appearance and temperatures warm into the 60s by May.
