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 Northern Idaho

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.

Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The views from Gus' Cabin were incredible. There is a very nice front porch that allows you to look down, and listen to the Moyie River. The air smells sweet with all the pines around, and it was very quiet in the forest. There are many places to hike and swim, and both our boys (ages 7 & 9) loved exploring the area. The cabin was clean and well furnished, the beds were very comfortable, and the boys enjoyed sleeping in the loft. If you decide to rent this house you will be very happy with the decision, we intend to come up again.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful little cabin in a quiet secluded area, yet close to attractions. Wonderful setting close to running River. This cabin has all the comforts and conveniences of home, plenty of sleeping areas, and wonderful porches for relaxing. I would definitely recommend for families, couples, or just about anyone!

Cozy cabin, very private

Beautiful setting, cozy cabin. Great view from the porch. We would stay here again. The second bathroom is definitely a plus when traveling with two couples.

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

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.
