This cozy home was originally owned by a famous local bandleader during the 40's and it's fun to imagine how the musicians might have gathered in the Great Room that he built for jam sessions and parties. The acoustics do seem to enhance the music we play. With two Master suites there's plenty of privacy, and the third bedroom allows for another couple on the third floor. Two full baths; one with a jetted tub and a Powder Room on the Main floor are newly remodeled. There's a living room with Granite Fireplace on one side of the kitchen and the Great Room is on the other. Both fireplaces have been recently finished with new Marble & Granite.
We've enjoyed many family gatherings in the oak furnished dining room that can easily accommodate eight for dinner. The front yard is partially enclosed allowing privacy and ambiance in the covered Lanai which features 'musical note' tiles on the floor, which is another feature left by the bandleader.

As much as we love living in Sandpoint Idaho we also enjoy going to Spokane for Family & Cultural events.
The Owner purchased this house in 1999
This home was purchased so that we could spend time in the City of Spokane without having to drive home after a day or an evening on the town. Having just finished the remodeling project, we felt it was ready to share with others who might enjoy the history & ambiance as much as we have.
How nice it is to walk to the grocery store or Starbucks in the morning before breakfast for some freshly baked bread OR to walk to our favorite local restaurant called Vintages 611 down Grand Blvd. on the way to town. Driving to the theatre, restaurants, or sporting events is never a chore with available parking easy to find.
The house worked out well for us. They let us checked out late which is very nice.
We didn't give 5 stars because of the following reasons. The house was not tip top clean when we arrived. The kitchen needs more supplies. The toilet tissue was scarce. We had a good time in Spokane. Thank you!
This is a great house. The Christmas theme is a little weird, but it did provide for some entertainment. All 4 bedrooms are done very nicely and beds are comfy. The kitchen, though small, has everything you could need. The backyard was a big bonus for us as we were there for a family wedding and this house and yard was a great gathering place for everyone. The house is 10 minutes from downtown and has most necessities nearby. It really worked well for us.
The house was charming looking, clean, comfortable and very convenient to downtown Spokane and our planned activities. The Christmas "motif" throughout was a source of amusement since we were there during mid-summer. We were disappointed that there was no DVD player and that the CD player did not work. Additionally, there were no properly working lamps in the downstairs bedroom. The biggest disappointment was the non-responsiveness of the property management - they Do Not return phone calls whether we needed information before we departed for Spokane, during our stay or follow up calls after our stay requesting information on return of our deposit (took almost 6 weeks to receive). The Maintenance person was responsive and assisted us with an air conditioning issue when we called him directly. We would give the house an "A" and the property management a "D minus"
The property was nice but the managers are hard to get a hold of and have still not returned my security deposit.
We came to Spokane for our daughters wedding and graduation from college.
The listing of this property was very accurate, and it was spotless, a great location for us, beautiful, and we would recommend it for:
Families with elementary aged children (there is a lot of marble and lots of stairs), and for agile, fit people of any age. We had our 80+ mother with us, and the stairs were hard for her. Our son and his wife and l year old loved the basement, it was cool and dark, and the carpeting is great. There is no blind or curtain that covers the upstairs bath - this really needs to be addressed, as it is open to the entire neighborhood. There are half-window blinds in all the upstair windows, so this is not a property that you can plan on sleeping in past 6am due to all the sunlight.
There was plenty of room for all of us, 7 adults.
This house worked perfectly as 6 of us visited Spokane. The house was very clean and provided all that we needed. Having a great room (perfect for watching Blackhawks win - yes!) as well as another gathering area (front room) was wonderful. It was a very nice neighborhood and convenient for all that we did in Spokane. We enjoyed the Christmas look. The steps upstairs were a bit steep if that is an issue for anyone. We truly enjoyed our stay.
This is a great option for long term Sacred Heart Hospital visitors. There are so many options for so many types of travelers coming into the Spokane area. Here is my TOP 10 favorite 'Must-Dos': (1) Golfing at Qualchan or Indian Canyon (http://www.spokanegolf.org/), (2) Wine tasting at Barrister Winery (http://www.barristerwinery.com/) or Arbor Crest (http://www.arborcrest.com/), (3) People watching at Gonzaga University (10 mins. away) or even Washington State University (60 mins. South), (4) Bloomsday race the first Sunday in May, (5) Hoopfest the last weekend in June, (6) the Christmas tree and Santa display at River Park Square (http://www.riverparksquare.com/), (7) Skiing with my kids at Mount Spokane (http://www.mtspokane.com/) or 49 Degrees North (http://www.ski49n.com/), (8) wine tasting and dinner at Luna on the South Hill, only 3 mins. from the House (http://lunaspokane.com/), (9) walking the bridges downtown when the Spokane Falls are huge, and (10) Walking around Manito Park and the Japanese Gardens (http://www.manitogardens.com/japanese_garden/manito_japanesegarden.htm) or Hiking in Riverfront State Park and seeing the Bowl and Pitcher (http://riversidestatepark.org/bowl_and_pitcher.htm)
