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.

Spectacular views, peaceful setting, well kept & clean cabin
This cabin was everything we could have wanted. The serenity of the mountains, the music of the creek, and the beautiful tooting of the train in the valley below gave this place a charm that is hard to describe. It was very obvious the owners love this place in that it was well cared for and clean.
We spent 1 week at Gus's cabin it was great. We fished all the surrounding lakes and the River.
We explored around the cabin saw Turkey and Deer.
We had a great time and would come back.
Best Place to Unplug!
Quiet, calming, serene and the best place to get away from busy lives. Not a sound to be heard except for the river rushing below the cabin. A true winter wonderland beyond compare! Susan, the host, is helpful and caring. This is the second time I've stayed at Gus's cabin and both times were amazing! Will definitely be staying many more times in the future!
Cozy, Quiet, A perfect getaway
Perfect place to disconnect and enjoy the quiet. Came here for our honeymoon and loved every minute of it. The cabin is very well stocked, you need bring nothing but the groceries. Very clean. My wife and I loved sitting on the back porch and listening to the river and the elk. We will definitely be back on or next trip through Idaho
The most peaceful place on earth
Beauttiful cabin and all the comforts of home. Enjoyed peaceful mornings sitting on back porch in clean, crisp air sipping coffee,,,,,,,, listening to nature at its best. I enjoy the serenity of gus's cabin and all it has to offer. Sleeping in the loft looking at the beautiful sky and stars......priceless! I will go back. The owners do all they can to accommodate guests and it is homey and welcoming.
Love love love this property!! Beautiful area and so private! Hope to come back some day!!! Wouldn't change a thing!
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.
