AFFORDABLE FAMILY & PET FRIENDLY VACATION COTTAGE NEAR SILVER MOUNTAIN

Kellogg Cottage Rental Photos and Description

After a day of fun in the Silver Valley of Northern Idaho, who wants to be cooped up in a tiny, overpriced hotel room?

What you want is the affordable comfort and privacy of the nicely furnished Birdsong Vacation Cottage in the heart of the Silver Valley. Romp and play with your dog in the roomy fenced in back yard. Temporary tags with the address of Birdsong Cottage are provided in case FIDO gets out and can't find his way back home.

With 3 bedrooms and 1.5 baths, a full kitchen, living room and basement, The Birdsong Cottage offers you and your guests the clean, quiet, affordable comfort that you are looking for.

Both bedrooms on the main floor feature comfortable queen size beds. The third bedroom on the 2nd floor sleeps 3 on a bunk bed and a large futon.

Relax in one of the four big comfy recliners in the living room while watching cable TV or your favorite movie on DVD.

High Speed internet is available with the cable service and cell phone coverage is excellent so with either a laptop or your wireless internet card, you will be able to surf the net, check your email,and post your vacation pictures.

An unfinished , but clean and dry basement provides extra space if you need it. Keep your equipment downstairs out of the way. You will also find the full sized washer and dryer in the basement.

Large patio in the fenced back yard gives a great place for small children to play. A propane grille in the garage can easily be moved to the patio for cooking the trout you just pulled out of lake Elsie. Or maybe you just like the smell of those sizzling steaks.

It gets hot in Kellogg on a summer afternoon, so both floors have window mounted air conditioners that keep them cool.

This place is perfect for a family looking for an affordable vacation any time of the year. Not fancy, but not expensive either. So pick up the phone and call me or click on the 'Contact Owner' button and drop me a line. I'll respond promptly.

Guestbook comments from the owner
we very much enjoyed our trip the yard was wonderful for the grandkids to play in after such a long time in the car. It was nice to walk into the house and have the air conditioner on after driving in 90+ degree heat. We would recommend this stay for any and all who were looking to stay in or around the area. Nice not to be cramped in a very small hotel room and the price was fantastic!! Thank you!

Rosalie and I met in Spokane, WA when I was stationed there in 1960 and have been married for more than 50 years. She grew up in the Silver Valley during the hay days of Mining and Logging and graduated from Kellogg HS. We are retired and live in Arlington, WA where we are surrounded by our large family of children and grand children.

Talmadge (Tal) Coy Birdsong purchased this cottage in 2006

Rosalie and I decided to buy this house after her mother passed away because we love vacationing here and did not want to lose contact with the rest of the family who remained in the Silver Valley. We vacation here as well as rent it to others who wish to enjoy this great vacation spot. We first made some improvements like adding the patio shown in the photo. We also added a new kitchen, a second half bath upstairs and replaced the driveway and painted inside and out.

The view of Silver Mountain from the living room, view of mountains from the kitchen sink, the large fenced back yard and its central location makes this affordable little cottage a great place for a family to enjoy their vacation. This house was built in 1949 by Bunker Hill Mining Co. to house a supervisor's family. We have tried to update it without losing the historic feel.

AMAZING FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We were all extremely happy with the location of the home. It was 5 minutes to the skiresort and very easy to find. The beds were very comfortable. We were surprised with how well stocked the kitchen was. It was like being at home. We will definitely be back next year. Thank you Tal for making your rental so homey.

Map

Birdsong affordable vacation cottage is located just a half mile from the base of the gondola to Silver Mountain. The rails-to-trails bicycle and hiking trail that runs 73-miles is an asphalt trail that almost spans the Idaho Panhandle. The trail begins at Mullan, near the Montana border in the Bitter Root Mountains, and travels through the Silver Valley ending at the Hn'ya)pqi'nn Trailhead near Plummer on Idaho Highway 95. It is only 5 blocks from the Birdsong Cottage to where it passes through Kellogg. The town of Wallace, which looks just like it did in the early 1900's and probably will never change is just 15 miles east. You can rent snomobiles in Wallace where it is allowed to drive them on the town streets.

For the Quad ATV enthusiasts there are hundreds of miles of logging roads through the mountains around kellogg, Smelterville, and Pinehurst which will take you to some of the worlds most beautiful scenery and often encounters wild life to look at. I have seen black bear, moose, elk, deer even bunnies while riding in these mountains. Although there are stories that would lead one to believe: That if a bull moose is standing in the road looking at you he should not be challenged and the best course of action is to quietly back away. Usually one only sees the animal up close just long enough for them to run into the bush and disappear. Then if you stop and wait you can see them re-appear in the next clearing or next ridge.

Silverwood Theme Park just North of Coeur d'Alene just an hour drive away provides a great day of entertainment for the whole family. Coeur d'Alene Lake just 30 minutes away is a great boating lake. I love to water ski there. There is a boat launch on the East edge of the lake that launches into a calm bay.

Treat your family to a wonderful vacation in this beautiful part of Northern Idaho.
