Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Julie and Steve:



Thank you so much for your hospitality. Your place was much nicer than we could have imagined. Ray had it warmed up, and the home is so well-appointed. Very nice! We felt right at home, and we thank you for having so much gear for bicycling,etc., though we couldn't use it in the winter. We borrowed your sleds and snowshoes and used them, and went hiking on the Pulaski trail, my son in law carrying Caleb, their 4 month old, in a sling on his chest.



The location could not be better.... we walked all over town, and even hiked up the big stairs for a valley view.



Thanks for a great time. The house was much larger than I expected, and could sleep 8 easily.

Thanks... see you this summer!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY FOR ACTIVE PEOPLE

  • 5 of 5
The house was very clean, with lots of extras if you forget something. This is a totally different experience than staying in a condo. You have to make your own fun, which was great. There is river rafting, horseback riding and great biking within an hours drive. We biked the Hiawatha trail for the 2nd time, an incredible experience. Hint: Take some air out of your tires first-easier ride on the gravel trail. Gloves would also be handy for the cold tunnels. We rafted with Montanariverguides outside Superior. It took about 1 1/2 hours to drive there and were very happy with them. We have rafted with others in the area and find this company to be the best. The biking trial that runs through Wallace is alot of fun and very easy. The area surrounding the house is a little run down, but the people are very friendly. Be prepared for all the cleaning at the end. All the bedding needs to be washed and beds remade, floors vacuumed and mopped. It makes it impossible to leave first thing in the morning, unless you sleep on the floor. I would still stay there again, but maybe ask to pay more for the cleaning deposit. That would give us more flexibility and keep the vacation fun to the very end. The owners are very easy to deal with and gave us contact numbers in case of any problems. The town is full of antique shops, which are fun to browse. We drove through Kellogg, which wasn't nearly as historic. We are so glad that we stayed in Wallace. Kellogg isn't nearly as quaint and has alot more commercial activity. The stairs are rather steep that lead to the bedroom and basement. They do have hand rails and new carpeting, but people with leg problems may find them difficult. Parking is on the street, so everything must be carried up the stairs. It worked out okay for us, as we are all in pretty good shape. It was my husband and I with our 13 and 15 year old girls. We all had a great time!

Owner's Response: Whoops. The clean-up list was meant as a guideline for our housekeeper, not our renters! It's wonderful if you leave the house looking nice, but the cleaning fee does cover vacuuming, mopping, making up the beds, etc. I'll be sure to clarify that at the house. Thanks.

THERE ARE BETTER CHOICES IN WALLACE

  • 1 of 5
Futons for beds, internet router located next door resulting in poor connectivity and the property manager was unaware of my arrival. In short, there are better choices to be made in this area for housing.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry that you had an experience at our vacation home that did not meet your expectations. We do our best to make sure the manager knows you are coming. I include his phone number for you to call ahead to let him know when you are coming on the day of arrival so he can get everything ready, as well as emailing him that you are coming. In this case, he did not get my e-mail about your arrival.

I’m sorry for the slower connectivity than you expected, which is something we only have partial control over in the Silver Valley. The beds have mid-range Ikea mattresses for comfort, they are not futons. We work hard to make sure everyone enjoys their stay with us.

NICE HOUSE ON THE HILL ONE BLOCK FROM DOWNTOWN...

  • 5 of 5
Perfect house for a ski weekend in the Silver Valley. Midway between Silver Mountain and Lookout Pass ski areas. Downtown and all it has to offer with restaurants, a brewery, wine bar, museums, and cool shops is just a block away. Comfortably slept the five us us and even enough room for more. Great kitchen for cooking and living room for putting your feet up. The covered porch would be great in summer. The two bedrooms and open loft with single beds are all upstairs, so if you have snorers bring earplugs. Beds and linens were clean and comfy. The unfinished basement has a washer and drier and an extra toilet and shower for those who like privacy in the privy. Parking was a bit limited, but the neighbors are very accomodating. We'll definitely be back for future ski trips and bike rides on the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes and Hiawatha Trail.

COMFORTABLE HOME IN HISTORIC WALLACE

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't have had a better time staying at this home in Wallace. It is a very comfortable and clean home. It was very nice to have a washer and dryer since we were there 10 days. The care taker Ray is about the greatest guy ever and will tell you anything you want to know about the area and what there is to do! Parking is limited but everyone around makes every effort to fit you in. Example: We fit two trucks which both were pulling a trailer. The town is amazingly interesting - some of our favorites were The Mining Tour, The Bordello Museum, The Wallace Brewery (so nice and fantastic beer), The Fainting Goat (fun atmosphere, great service), Route of the Hiawatha, The Pulaski Tunnel Trail, too many to count hikes and ATV trails and our neighbor Ray! Thanks Wallace for a great trip, we miss you already!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words about our vacation home in Wallace! Ray really is a gem and we are glad to have him help our visitors. Having grown up and living in the area all his life and having worked in the silver mines really pays off for visitors. He is just a great resource. There is just so much to do in the area that a week is not enough!

SUMMER 2008

  • 4 of 5
A very nice house to stay in. All of the appliances and fixtures worked good, the beds were firm but comfortable, and the house was well kept up. The ad is pretty accurate with few surprises. The town is very cute and easily with in walking distance. One thing I will mention is that you park in the street in front of the house, and the stairs to the house have no handrail if you need one. There is no TV stations for weather updates just DVD and VHS, but you can get local radio. I would suggest you take time to relax on the front porch and enjoy the view for a while, it is small but very nice. We had five people and were comfortable in the house and by using the laundry facilities we were able to pack lighter for our week stay. The town has a local grocery and several restaurants. There is also a Walmart about 12 miles to the West on the freeway.

A PERFECT HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at this wonderfully comfortable home. We had a fantastic time - Wallace in the summer is very relaxing and lots to see and do – history and nature abound. The bike riding was terrific. The air was clear.
We came home feeling great. Our son was able to work out in the nearby pool - it was too convenient. The kitchen is great – we made meals in and ate out in town when we wanted– just an easy stroll to the heart of town. The home is ideal for couples or families. The home is clean and beautifully maintained.

Our other visit was in the winter – the snow was plentiful and the drive in and to the ski resorts was a breeze. The views from the home are charming and picture postcard of a historic small town.

The property managers are efficient, available, and prompt. It is very easy to make arrangements with the owners. Respond quickly to emails and inquires.

This is truly a home that feel like a home away from home!!!! Would recommend without any reservations.

Car: recommended

Wallace, a quaint mining town, looks much as it did in the early 1900's. For bicyclists, a 72 mile paved bike path is 3 blocks away. Both Lookout Pass and Silver Mountain ski resorts are a 15 minute drive by car. There are unlimited possibilities for biking, hiking, riding and snowshoeing in the surrounding National Forest. Downtown is a block away, featuring antique and gift shops and other attractions including the Silver Mine Tour, the Oasis Bordello Museum, Wallace District Mining Museum and Northern Pacific Depot Railroad Museum. There are numerous festivals and activities in town throughout the summer.

Other Activities: community pool 2 blocks away

Ski: Wallace is 12 miles from both Lookout Pass and Silver Mountain Ski Resorts! Silver Mountain has more lifts and more runs but is significantly more expensive. It also takes 20+ minutes on the Gondola to get to the lifts. Lookout Pass is less expensive, less crowded, and usually has better snow.
