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.
