About Susan Gilbert

Gus and I fell in love with Idaho three years ago. Our dream is to retire there one day. Currently our children are in school, so we cannot make that move, yet.

Susan Gilbert purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Susan Gilbert chose Bonners Ferry

Bonners Ferry is a charming small town. It offers shopping, good food, and a friendly atmosphere. From the moment, Gus and I crossed the Kootenai River, we knew we had found home. People are so friendly, there's little to no crime, and our love for nature made it where we had to have a small piece of Idaho.

What makes this cabin unique

The Moyie River is a beautiful river that offers white water rafting adventure. Idaho law requires you wear a life vest any time you are in the water, and you must have a licensed guide when rafting parts of the Moyie River due to the caliber of white water.

If you enjoy snow skiing, Schweitzer Mountain in Sandpoint, Idaho has great skiing. Fast in and fast out - you can get in many runs. Tubing is also offered.

Many lakes and hiking trails are in the area, as many antique shops. Be sure to visit 3 mile Antique Store, the stores in downtown Bonners Ferry, and Sandpoint for your shopping fix. If you crave homemade pastries, go to The Bread Basket early for a delicious cinnamon roll. You can get bulk goods at Sharon's Country Store next door. The best pizza is found at Papa Byrd's pizza in Bonners Ferry. Make sure you have a hearty appetite, because the pizza is HUGE and the portions are large. Wallace, Idaho is about 2 1/2 hours south of Bonners Ferry. This is where they filmed Dante's Peak. For adventure, grab a bike and ride the Hiawatha Trail.

A true getaway

  • 5 of 5
The moment we pulled up to the gate and drove down the 1/4 mile "driveway" we knew this was what we were looking for. The cabin and property are better then the pictures. It was hard to drag ourselves off the comfortable back porch with a stunning view of the surrounding mountains. However we did get out hiking on the numerous trails as the property backs up to a National Forest. The owners were kind and helpful.

Awesome location, beautiful cabin, great host!

We loved staying at this cabin. The owners have done a wonderful job of making it very comfortable and cozy but still maintaining the cabin feel. We loved exploring the area and all there is to do near the cabin. It's the perfect place for a family to be together and be away from it all. Susan was very gracious and allowed us to use the bikes and kayaks she had there (although we never did use the kayaks). I hope to retire and such a place one day!

A fabulous get-away in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5
Gus' cabin exceeded our expectations! What a pleasure to sit on the back porch, take in the gorgeous scenery, and only hear the sounds of nature - with the exception of the train whistle, which was not that much of a distraction :-). The cabin was very clean and it provided all the comforts of home. The kitchen was well stocked, the beds were comfortable, and the outdoor furniture was perfect. After seeing many deer and turkeys and no people, we throughly enjoyed our time in the "wilderness". We walked down to the river (a nice bench is there to watch the river), hiked around the mountain, took many pictures of wildlife, and just relaxed on the porch. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer!

A Lovely Discovery!

  • 5 of 5
I was in a tight spot, having taken time off when my other choice of a cabin didn't work out. I was elated when I was able to rent this cabin at the last minute. Truthfully, I would love to keep this a secret, a beautiful, peaceful, secret to enjoy all by my self, but that wouldn't be fair to these wonderful owners of Gus's cabin! This cabin had everything I could need on my getaway, I just brought my food. Very well decorated and homey. Comfortable beds, privacy, quiet, wildlife,clean and lots of little extras. I even saw a moose and he stayed in one place just long enough for me to get a picture. I will definitely be back if the schedule doesn't fill up before I can! Would be a great romantic get away, or a time to relax and spend time with God like I did! Don't be afraid to try this place out, you will want to go back again! I am so glad that the first place didn't work out, this was better by far!

What a beautiful location and perfect cabin for a short stay or to spend the rest of our
lives at. We really enjoyed our three days this spring at your cabin in Northern Idaho
and would come back again at the first chance. John really needed just such a trip to
unwind and I also found the cabin and scenery invigorating. I hope this situation can
continue to work for the owner's and we will always remember this trip and their cabin
in the woods. C&J...

Owner's Response: The Moyie River creates such a relaxing environment as well as the peace of the woods. Northern Idaho is a great place to unwind and refresh the spirit.

Gus's Log Cabin is located in northern Idaho approximately 3 miles from the Canadian border. The cabin in situated on 4 acres surrounded by national forest land. You have access to the Moyie River where you can fish, tube, kayak, or canoe. You can sit on the deck and enjoy watching the wildlife: Canadian geese, ducks, eagles, moose, deer, and elk; or you can just enjoy the mountain scenery. Banff, Canada, is only 4 hours away and Calgary is about 7 hours. Casinos are located in Bonners Ferry and just north across the Canadian border. A day in Sandpoint, Idaho is a must. Skiing can be enjoyed at Schweitzer Ski Resort located in Sandpoint, which is an hour's drive south of the cabin. Be sure to take the short hike to Copper Falls and enjoy fishing in one of the many nearby lakes. Robinson Lake is one of my favorites.
