Cozy, Quiet and Secluded.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful and well kept. Offers a true opportunity to get away from it all (no wifi, very limited cell service). Great recreation options both on property and a short drive away (in every direction!), but the best use of this cabin is to stay put and enjoy a few days of tranquility. George and Kristine were truely gracious hosts who made us feel welcome without being overbearing. You will not regret time spent at this property.

Amazing Christmas at Starfire Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I felt so lucky to be able to spend a sublime Christmas together at Starfire Cabin. The peace & tranquility in the snowy woods, combined with the coziness of the beautiful log cabin were exactly what we were looking for.

George & Kristina had the wood-burning stove roaring for us when we arrived, and thoughtfully greeted us with a delicious pumpkin loaf. (Kristina also brought us cookies on Christmas morning) The cabin was decked out for the holiday with a wreath on the front door and a lighted Christmas tree on the porch. The entire setting was absolutely magical!

We spent one day skiing at Schweitzer (which had great conditions and almost no one on the slopes), but the rest of the time we lounged around the cabin reading, cooking, & just being (usually in front of the fire). We're already looking forward to another visit the next time we need to get away from the city & recharge.

North Idaho Garden of Eden

  • 5 of 5

There’s a reason the Starfire Cabin has so many 5 stars reviews - it’s just that good! The moment you turn up the lane your anticipation rises. Pass by Kristina’s magical, whimsical, english garden and come to your private log cabin. If you’ve ever wanted to experience a log cabin in the woods this is will spoil you for any other. The whole place invites you to relax, be present, unwind and recharge. Cabin is clean and well stocked with comforting incidentals. But the most wonderful part is the fantastic heart and souls of the owners who have shared this lovingly crafted cabin. This isn’t a rental, this is a soul experience. A return visit has already been planned.

Starfire Cabin A Weekend in Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and loved everything about our stay!!! From the warm greeting to the gracious sharing of their time! We saw deer out of every window in the cabin walked the property, drove to the bay, ate in town and in the cabin, enjoyed the wood stove/fireplace, looking at the stars through the skylights! We honestly did not want to leave. We WILL be back; you can count on that! Thank you again George and Kristina!!

A quiet refuge

Heaven in Idaho

  • 5 of 5

We are truly blessed by the exceptionally unique accommodations of the handcrafted cabin in the Idaho woods. Kristina and George are delightful and most gracious hosts. We loved this special experience, and the amazing craftsmanship of the log cabin is delightful adding to the experience in nature. Full of comfort, peace and tranquility, and a time to unwind from the technological world and appreciate life. We travelled from southern California to celebrate my husband's birthday! This was truly a blessing and we enjoyed our time in nature greatly! Thank you for this rare and distinctive luxury!
