Blossom Mountain Retreat

Bedrooms 3
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

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.

Frankie Mcferon-Crumb purchased this cabin in 1980

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.

Nature's Best

We stayed at the cabin for 4 nights, the cabin felt like home with flannel sheets and all you need for a peaceful vacation. The location is central to everything and only about 4 mins from I-90. Frankie was so accommodating and helpful...There was even a nice surprise when we came in the cabin.

All I can say is Wow! And Wow one more time!!!

  • 5 of 5

I simply can't believe we had the opportunity to stay in such an extraordinary place. It was perfect in every imaginable way. The cabin was a real gem inside and out with surreal views. We have every intention of coming back really soon to enjoy yet another wonderful and one of a kind experience. I would like to thank the owners for being first rate professionals. Their cabin is tastefully decorated, incredibly spotless and cozy beyond belief. It's location couldn't have been better. Thanks, Frankie and Brian for providing us with memories that will be treasured for a lifetime.

Couldn't have been better.

Being from Texas I may never visit Idaho again. Glad my experience was here. Deer passing by while cooking hot dogs in the open pit fire was a once in a lifetime experience (hot dog/marshmallow skewers were ready and waiting for us). Places to hike were nearby and exhilarating. If I ever find my way back to Idaho, I will stay here. The listing description was very accurate. We needed to call Frankie a couple of times, especially how to work the hose and she answered right away and stayed on the phone until we got it right. I would recommend this place, and even already did to a man who works at the airport. Thank you for the peace and quiet and the thousand of stars you can see at night. We did a lot of cooking and the kitchen was stocked well with all kinds of kitchen wares. Look under the bowl that looks like an apple and you will find a recipe that looked great. Thanks again for a great place to stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Terilyn, Thank you for the great review and the sweet blessing in the guestbook. My husband had a good laugh when I told him about your garden hose issue...thinking it was an old fashioned pump;). I'm glad you took advantage of the camp fire with marshmallows...we are going back this evening for a camp fire of our own. PS Loved talking to you when you first arrived...your Texas accent is priceless! You are welcome back any time!!

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time at the cabin and once again, it was a wonderful experience. As soon as you open the door there is a sense of calm and a true feeling of a home away from home. The cabin itself accommodated all five of us very comfortably and the large deck overlooking the wooded areas is a great place to relax and unwind. My morning coffee never taste better up there. Over all it is an amazing place to stay and my definition of "glamping." (glamorous camping!)

Frankie, the host, is very accommodating, receptive and always approachable. She thinks of everything to make your stay even better. Home baked scones await you on the kitchen table, soft calming scents resonate throughout the house, there is amazing "tingly" shampoo in the shower, there are great movies to watch and games to play...and the list goes on and on. Her attention to detail is incredible, living in a log cabin is amazing and the experience she provides is unprecedented.

We look forward to returning again.....I would recommend staying here with no hesitation.

Owner's Response: Wow, Sylvia! I love that you had your grown children along this trip and now have memories to last until next time. You seem more like a friend now, with all our emails back and forth, from your first inquiry until your actual trip. I truly hope you can return again. Thank you for leaving the cabin so nice and neat, making my cleaning routine easier than ever! See you next time, Frankie

Wonderful mountain cabin

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need to enjoy the area. The beds are great and the rooms are good sized. My brother in law and I stayed here for the Ironman in August. If you don't want to fight the crowds this place is wonderful, but still only minutes away from everywhere. The road is steep but nothing anyone used to the mountains should mind. The owners were great to work with. I was injured during the race and they were extremely kind. I would highly recommend staying.

Owner's Response: Hi Trent, Thank you for the great review. I always look forward to my annual Ironman guests and am sorry for your race injury. I hope your recovery is swift and that you'll be training soon for next year. You are welcome back any time. Thanks for choosing our place and leaving the cabin nice and neat.
