Post Falls 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 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.

About Frankie Mcferon-Crumb

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.

Why Frankie Mcferon-Crumb chose Northern Idaho

We moved here from Oregon in 1980 to live in beautiful North Idaho and haven't had even a moment's regret.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

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.

Great log cabin in the woods

  • 4 of 5

Blossom Mountain Retreat is a very nice log cabin in a quite setting and still just minutes from Post Falls and Coeur d'Alene.

It was perfect for our family of 4 with everyone having their own space and a nice open area kitchen/family room to hang out in. We did experience some bees outside the cabin in our early August visit, but the owners were very response and came out early the next morning to deal with them. Great place to relax for a couple days or a week.

Exceeded Every Expectation!

  • 5 of 5

Our jaws dropped the minute we unlocked the door and stepped in this home. We loved everything about it. The layout of the home was perfect, each of us had a space to retreat to, our bedrooms, but the open main floor allowed us to be together. We started each day eating breakfast at the kitchen table while enjoying the view out the french doors. Then we stepped out on the deck and soaked up the mountain freshness with our coffee. The fire pit, the hammock, and the swing were an added bonus.

In one word, our week there was IMPRESSIVE! We were impressed everyday. Every amenity was covered, the beds, bedding, kitchenware, and one of our favorites, the laundry room! As silly as it sounds, it was such an added bonus to pack clean clothes for our return trip, one less thing to do when we arrived home.

We can't wait to stay again the next time we come back to Post Falls!

Owner's Response: Thank you Jackie, for the wonderful review!! I've enjoyed our communication back and forth and feel like I know you, even though we haven't met. I like being 'invisible' so our guests can feel as though they own the cabin. Thank you for choosing our place and you and your family are welcome back any time!

Awesome Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

I have been using VRBO for years and this house is the best I've ever rented. It's a beautiful spot and feels very comfortable the minute you walk in.

Our hosts, Frankie and Brian were so good to us and it was a pleasure to meet them. We stayed a week and wished we were there for the summer !

If you are in N. Idaho, Blossom Mountain Retreat is where you want to be. No question about it.

Thanks from Russ, Doug, & Sonja Stevens

Owner's Response: Thank you Russ!! We're usually 'invisible' to our guests, always available but wanting them to feel as though the cabin was their very own....but you and your family invited us up and we totally enjoyed the experience of meeting all of you! What a great family! Thank you for leaving the cabin so nice and we hope to see you all again! Frankie

WOW WOW WOW!!!!! We absolutely LOVED this cabin! It was so beautiful and came completely equipped with everything you could think of. We came with our clothes, deodorant, and toothbrushes/toothpaste. I thought we would have to pick up more things from the grocery store once we arrived but we didn't lack one single thing as it was all there waiting for us! Even ponchos for our rainy stay. Thank you! Superbly clean and well maintained. My little one was able to sleep in the pack and play, which was like new and very clean (with a clean sheet packed neatly inside). My father has allergies and is very sensitive to many things that most people don't think of-- but this cabin didn't bother him in the slightest! Our stay was absolutely fantastic and if we ever need a rental while in the area again, you can be sure that we will be back. We were really busy while visiting the area and didn't have time to sign the guest book, but I wish we had! Frankie and Brian, thank you so much for sharing your beautiful cabin with us.

We really appreciate it, and all of the small things that went into making our stay so wonderful, beautiful, easy and clean!!!!!!!!!!!

God Bless- -

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has the charm of a cabin but every convenience needed. It is close to town but feels isolated. The views are beautiful, the furnishings are great and the owners are incredibly accommodating. If you need the quiet of a mountain get away but would like to be close to the action, then this is the rental ( there is a beautiful beach area of the Spokane River ten minutes away and drive through coffee kiosk the same distance). Coeur d'Alene is close and Spokane is an easy freeway ride. This is a great place for a family with great owners who are available and extremely helpful. The scones were certainly a really nice, unexpected touch. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for choosing our cabin. It was nice meeting all of you...and seeing the excitement and the mixed emotions of settling your sweet daughter into Gonzaga. I hope you return and maybe even move to North Idaho or Spokane. Thanks for the great review!
