BLOSSOM MOUNTAIN RETREAT

Kidd Island Bay Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Love the cabin...our trip was short and busy so this wonderful place was lovely to come back to at the end of each day. We look forward to a longer stay next time! Thanks for the flowers, s'mores fixins and comfy beds.

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.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1980

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.

Wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5
Beautifully appointed, warm, and comfortable with all of the amenities you'll appreciate. Wonderful linens, comfortable beds/pillows, plush towels... this place has it all. Deer slept in the yard during evening times and we enjoyed lounging in the hammock. Even though it's up in the mountains, it's easy to get to everything you might need in town within 10 mins. Special thanks to Frankie and Brian for sharing their beautiful home. Highly recommend!

Perfect quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5
I hate to tell the truth about the location because I want to keep the secret of this gem to myself. This home was wonderful. Nice and quiet out in the woods with easy access into town for supplies and to the River and Coeur D'Alene Lake. It had every amenity we needed and then some. My family hasn't stopped asking when we can go back. We enjoyed the deck, the fire pit, and of course the indoor swing!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
The Blossom Mountain Retreat is as is says, a retreat, it's so wonderful feeling that you are away from it all and at the same time being only 5 minutes from downtown, a great location for biking, hiking, shopping, eating and generally relaxing. The cabin is cozy but spacious with everything in there that you could wish for. In a nutshell it's perfect.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
The cabin is beautiful, very clean and fully equipped for a great stay. Only a few minutes from downtown Post Falls, but you'd think you're high up in the mountains. We saw deer, turkeys, raccoon and a host of smaller birds and critters. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting some privacy, great scenery, yet close to town. The owners are very nice people and great to deal with. Excellent experience.

Heaven in the trees

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this wonderful cabin over the Memorial Day weekend. It was perfect!!! From the scones Frankie left for us to the beautiful scenery and peaceful environment, it was more than we could have hoped for during a tough time. I would recommend this location to anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and in need of some rest and relaxation. When we make another trek to the area, we will definitely plan on staying here again. Thanks again Frankie and Brian for being so great.

This is the perfect vacation for anyone seeking all the comforts of home plus so much more. From the Viking range to the outdoor grill to the swing inside or the hammock outside, Blossom Mountain retreat is paradise for two weary adults, two need to unplug teenagers, and a rambunctious four year old boy. The owners lived here and treat you like you do too! They have a gift for hospitality and a knack for wrapping the rustic in the luxurious. Moreover, you are minutes from the quaint towns, lovely lakes and rivers. We all love it!

The owners are a delight to talk with and so helpful with understanding the property and area.
