We stayed at the Roost for a week and had a relaxing time. The layout was comfortable and sufficient for seven people (two couples and three children) with two bathrooms and a full kitchen, but the reason we plan to return is the working ranch atmosphere, its friendly owners (Larry and Bonny) and the miles of hiking trails. We intended to use the house as a nightly landing spot between adventures at Silverwood and Couer d'Alene, but ended up spending over half of our week exploring and enjoying the ranch. Our kids got to know each of the horses by name (and were eventually permitted to ride them under Bonny's watchful eye). The kids loved the pool, the adults loved the hot tub. We brought two dogs that bonded with their ranch dogs and lived for daily hikes into the wilderness. It was remote but still close enough to things that mattered (12 min to a grocery store, 30 min to Silverwood, 45 min to Couer d'Alene).
