This beautifully restored home with a gorgeous back yard is minutes from downtown by car and provides excellent access to nearby cycling trails, restaurants and tourist sites. The house is immaculately clean but I do agree with a previous writer who mentioned the need for a toaster and kettle and I would add hooks in the bathroom for wet towels as well as some reading lights as it is quite dark. We didn't meet the owner but she was very accommodating when we made an error in our departure date and was able to let us stay the extra day. We found endless things to do in Spokane and were so impressed with the number and quality of cycling/walking trails. The city is beautiful and easy to get around. We especially loved Wild Sage for dinner and also enjoyed Central Food. Although the house is in a transitional area, we felt entirely comfortable and safe.
