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!

Peaceful cabin in the woods.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Starfire Cabin. The owners are incredibly hospitable and make you feel like family as soon as you arrive. We found peace and serenity in the beautiful surroundings and loved the charm of this wonderful place. We enjoyed being just 15 minutes from Sandpoint where we could easily enjoy the downtown experience and then return to our quiet place to sit back and rejuvenate.

You'll never want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous property, gracious hosts, gardens to pick fresh veggies from, fire pit, grill, wood-burning stove...these are just the preliminaries - the tangibles - that you will love about this cabin. But what will really stay with you, what will touch your soul, and enact a paradigm shift in your life, is to read the cabin binder when you arrive. Don't just blindly thumb through the fliers and brochures for activities in the area...really read the story behind the cabin and the family who built it. Then take a walk along the groomed path, turning right at the gravel road - and take notice of the field with the wind chime, bench, and old cabin remnants. I promise - you will never look at this cabin, or at life in general, in the same way again.

George and Kristina, and their cabin, have touched my heart - I can't wait to go back!

Unique and totally wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Starfire cabin is a hand built log cabin by the host family that still emanates the love it was made with. In a quiet, peaceful location with deer off the deck every morning, this place is a marvelous retreat. Great hikes and outdoor sports nearby made this the perfect spot for us...wish we could have stayed longer!
