While most restaurants and businesses at the Schweitzer Village shut down by 7:00 PM, Sandpoint's downtown pubs, restaurants and other nearby businesses stay open longer hours.  This makes staying at the Newport Plums Estate far more desirable and convenient if your family or group will want to dine out past 7:00 PM.
