My husband and I were looking for an anniversary get-away...this filled all our expectations plus some! The cabin was so cozy and laid out well...from the walk-in shower to the spacious, fully-stocked kitchen, it was a delightful experience. The hot tub on the back deck looked out to a beautiful mountain range, and we really felt like the only people staying on the property even though the owner, Mike, is on the premise. We did take a jaunt down to the barn to help with feeding the array of farm animals: Alpacas, goats, pot-bellied pig, chickens, ducks, and turkey. Several of the alpacas wander the property at will and get close to the cabin for a great viewing! The farm dog just had a litter of puppies we were able to play with as well! We were able to bring our 6mo old puppy with us with no complications on Mike's part.This was definitely a one-of-a-kind peaceful, relaxing stay for us and we will most definitely be coming back!


Awesome! Such gorgeous property! And the house is beautiful and cozy. Michael is a warm and friendly host that has covered all the bases. I was sad to leave. Michael cooked our steaks for us and they were perfect. His ranch hands are friendly while staying busy taking care of the animals and surroundings. We loved it!

Fulfilling, incredibly peaceful views filled our senses.

This out of the way area, yet within a few miles of Coeur d'alene, filled our senses with peace, beauty, and fresh air. Watching a storm move through the mountains and valley as we sat on the patio or in the hot tub was a delight, as we had come from hot dry weather back home. Mike was a great host and made us feel very welcome. The 2 bedroom house was roomy and very comfortable. Mike's collection of music fit any mood. The kitchen was very well equipped to cook anything we desired. The grill was large and Mike had prepped it for our stay. The animals were a delight to watch and the property was open and well maintained. We didn't hire Mike to cook for us this trip, but I'm confident he would have done an amazing job at it. Lot's of time for adventuring, rest, and just enjoying nature.

Our secret piece of heaven

this was absolutely everything that we were hoping for and much more. Our hosts were incredible...they were freindly, caring, attentive, and just genuine good people. Michael can make some mean crab enchiladas too! We are already planning our next summer trip.

Romantic Getaway

I stumbled across this while trying to find an inexpensive getaway for me and my girlfriend.The review I read were all positive and thought I would give it a try. It was amazing! All the other reviews are right on. I have paid more to stay in hotels the offered only a fraction of the amenities. One awesome feature is the full chefs kitchen. Everything you could ever want or need to cook a meal is available. The space was more than ample for the two of us and it was extremely comfortable. Plus there was a hot tub which was nice in the evenings. For a fee Michael will cook for you. His food was excellent and he has good stories to tell. There are plenty of things to do on the ranch and around the area. However, we just stayed in and it was peaceful and relaxing. Another bonus was the baby alpaca that would come a visit us. In short it is a great place to stay Mike is really helpful. If you like a comfy place to stay, lots of extras, and a nice location this place has all of those in spades. We are already trying to figure out when we could go back again.

We Love it Here

We look forward to staying here again on our next trip to Coeur d'Alene! The property is beautiful, the house is lovely and the owner's thoughtfulness in the details is above and beyond anything we've experienced in other homes we have rented. We arrived very late, so my favorite surprise was when I went to make morning coffee and it was already prepped. :) It is a comfortable place to be and we just wanted more time to enjoy it.

A week on the this ranch was one of the best vacations I have ever

Simply put, our stay here was far better than we had anticipated!! Everything was just perfect...the ranch house, the views, the animals, the chef prepared dinner and the host, Michael. My son fell in love with all the animals! We were fortunate to see the new 5 hour old baby alpaca on July 6th. Tyler loved her and even named her "Emily" :) Seeing him with the animals so good for my soul! We truly enjoyed our week there and cannot wait to go back!

Incredible experience

We arrived not knowing what to expect, thinking it was a small house, but would be adequate. To our surprise the house was large, about 1000 sq ft with a fabulous kitchen, breathtaking views from its large covered patios and beautifully decorated rooms. The alpacas greeted us with curiosity and gentleness; they eat food right out of your hands! We were so blessed to see the arrival of a new baby alpaca during our stay, 3 baby goats and a beautiful horse named Jazz. What an experience my husband, standard poodle and myself have had, we will definitely be booking a week stay again, 2 days just wouldn't be long enough for anyone. I also want to mention Mike, the owner/manager of the property, he is wonderful, knowledgeable and sincerely cares about your stay, his thoughtful personality is genuine and his stories are so much fun! Mike's side kick, Kona, a gentle giant, she's an English Mastiff with the sweetness of a puppy yet agility of a lion, she and our dog immediately became best friends. I just had to write about our experience, you can't go wrong with your vacation staying here!
