About the property

2 king bedrooms + Convertible bed and bunkbeds, 2 Baths (Sleeps 8) Full kitchen

Brookside Acres offers the ultimate in country accommodations and 140 private acres of easy to challenging trail heads that wind into the solitude of nature in all seasons. Trails will take you onto additional thousands of acres of private timber and state land. Plan on encountering wildlife but not people or noisy machines. Slip on your snowshoes or hiking boots at the back door and take off for an hour or half the day. Backcountry cross country at your level of expertise, or warm yourself by the outdoor fire pit with simmering hot chocolate. The firepit is perfect for hotdogs and smores in summer. Bring you own horse and explore the back woods. However you choose to spend your day, you're sure to feel rejuvenated and rested in the 'Roost' at Brookside.

Your extra large private hot tub will rejuvenate you and the swimming pool is open all summer.

You may also enjoy skiing at any three ski resorts within 90 minutes of Brookside: 49 Degrees North, Mt. Spokane, and Schweitzer Ski Resort. Silver Mountain is a bit further. Stoneridge Golf and Recreation Resort is a ten-minute drive and offers year around pool and hot tub. You'll find many other golf courses for summer use in our area.

We offer fine furnishings including comfortable king-sized beds, two full bathrooms and complete kitchen and laundry. The living room is equipped with a 36in HD TV, with TVO Direct TV and DVD machine. Enveloped by farm and timberland, you'll likely be wakened each morning by our friendly rooster, Beethoven, and lulled to sleep by the sounds of the nearby creek, horses nickering and coyotes crying in the distance.

Brookside Acres is located at the far west end of Blanchard Valley and, since 1939, has been a diary farm, a cattle ranch, has been logged numerous times as has the surrounding area. Larry and Bonnie Reichert are taking a more conservative approach and continue to raise hay for sale and their own livestock. Guests are welcome to bring their own horses and ride surrounding trails.

In the foothills of the Selkirks, Mt. Spokane at 5400’ is the highest nearby mountain. Brookside Acres sits at 2700’ and is accessed from the west over a small pass which elevation equals that of Snoqualmie Pass in the Washington Cascades. You’ll normally find the pass enshrouded with snow through April. From the east, Brookside lies six miles from the town of Blanchard, Idaho.

We are certain that you’ll enjoy and prize these surroundings as we do.

Charming secluded comfort

The home is clean, comfortable, and has everything you need to relax on vacation with the family. It's also fairly convenient driver to Silverwood and other areas.

Our family of grandparents with two children, their spouses and 4 children ages 2-10 (10 people) spent a wonderful weekend at the farm! We hiked, swam, flew kites, rode Big Red and gathered eggs. Larry and Bonnie met our every need and helped to make it a memorable time. We would highly recommend this farm to anyone. Our group was larger than they like but they allowed us to come and we were most grateful. You will love this place if you want to get away from the rush of everyday life!

Amazing Place!! and Amazing hosts! We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

My family (7, 12 & 14 year old) had an amazing time! We had room for our in-laws and they also had an amazing time!!! My 7 year old wants to buy the property, see loved it so much. She enjoyed riding Big Red (beautiful horse), checking on the chickens each morning and pool time. We would normally stay at our time share, but we feel very blessed that the time share was full and we go to stay with Larry and Bonnie. Would 100% recommend this place!!!

Picturesque horse ranch with hiking in the foothills!

  • 5 of 5

An incredible vacation experience! Larry and Bonnie are most excellent and gracious hosts. The Roost is spacious, comfortable, and well equipped. Hiking in the foothills was delightful. Their ranch is very picturesque especially with their beautiful horses grazing around a meandering creek. Very much want to return to this special, pastoral place.
