This cozy retreat has a remote quality but is actually only three miles from I-90. You can be downtown Spokane in less than thirty minutes and Coeur d'Alene in fifteen minutes. The Centennial Trail that runs from Spokane to Coeur d'Alene, fun for running or biking is less than ten minutes away. The Spokane River Park with boat launch and swimming is less than three miles away. Scenic day trips and activities make this cabin a perfect and peaceful place to stay.
There are three bedrooms, all with new queen beds and down comforters. One bedroom is on the main floor, one in the daylight basement (master bedroom) and one in the loft (my favorite).
The open living room/kitchen area has bamboo floors and outstanding views. A Viking Range and KitchenAid stand mixer may entice you to cook. If you prefer to dine out there are two or three now famous restaurants in Post Falls, minutes down the hill as well as several great places to eat in Coeur d'Alene and Spokane.
There are two bathrooms. The bath on the main floor has an antique clawfoot tub and the other bath, downstairs, has a new tile shower.
Two gas fireplaces will keep you toasty warm on cool evenings, and a window A/C unit will cool the house if the days get too warm, which happens only a few days a year.
We have decorated the cabin with comfortable furniture, hoping you will want to keep coming back.
The view from the cedar deck is breathtaking and at any time you may see moose, elk or deer wandering by the front of the house. A birdwatcher's delight, there are Stellar Jays, Juncos, Chickadees, Robins, Woodpeckers...birds than I can list and even the occasional Bald Eagle!
Due to the massive rock wall and open loft area, this cabin may not be suitable for young children.
The half mile driveway is gravel and steep in places but well maintained in the summer.
This was our primary residence for thirty years and still our little slice of heaven. We hope you will enjoy the same peace on the mountain as we do.
PLEASE NOTE: In the guest comment section a hot tub is mentioned. The hot tub is no longer available....it was 20 years old and finally stopped working. Because of liability and upkeep we have opted against replacing it. We hope this does not stop you from visiting our peaceful retreat.

We built this log home, beginning in 1980, with the help of family and friends. This was our permanent residence until last year. Our wish is to keep the furnishings simple but at the same time warm and inviting. We hope others get the opportunity to see why we love our mountain home and visit us often.
We moved here from Oregon in 1980 to live in beautiful North Idaho and haven't had even a moment's regret.
Bird and wildlife watching, hiking and dirt biking over miles of old logging roads. Solitude and silent nights. Star filled sky for nighttime deck sitting, prefect for a glass of wine and good conversation. Lots of DVDs and games for your entertainment.
