The SpaceThe log cabin brings out a feel of the West we read about in history, with touches of the local history in the photos throughout the cabin. Yet it has plenty of hot water and a Hi-Flame efficient wood stove or a infrared electric heater. Cabin stays warm in winter and cool in summer because of the thickness of the logs. Comfortable Englander queen bed and just as comfortable twin.
Since we live on the Earth and there are critters out there that want to share the indoor space, we take precautions to control the insects and rodents( have never had a rodent yet in cabin but a few ants have made it in) so we use a organic product ( will not hurt pets or humans, but takes care if the insects) the product is in a small granular form and is under sinks and around the outside of cabin and on porch. Please leave only effective if there.
PLEASE do not leave pets alone in cabin, either have in crate ( we have very large one and smaller) or take them with you, unless a parrot in cage we had visit for 5 weeks once! We have a out door kennel if you dig does not dig. Talk to us and introduce your animal to ours, everyone gets along better that way. There maybe exceptions for a few hours once we meet the animal. Guest AccessGuest have access to the world of nature, many lakes, trails, streams,
Views and mountains to climb! Feel free to walk around property, we like company and a chat (our house is on the property as well)
Mica, our rescue horse likes to meet guests and after Lee demonstrates method she can be given 4-5 treats a day. Addie our wonderful friendly dog likes people but if one wants to be left alone we understand and she willingly stays at home. Couple of nice cars keep us rodent controlled. But don't really care about guests.
Sharon's Country Store and bakery is about 1/4 south of property with mNy assorted coffees and teas as well as breakfast burritos and homemade bread for their sandwiches, try their Full Nelson sandwich. Huge!!! Our area has many restaurants with grass fed local beef as the main source of meat. Rusty Moose, Under the Sun ( organic food) Moyie Springs gas and restaurant, Elmira store and restaurant ( 10 miles south) we have lots of family style that serve wonderful food , home made ice cream, great Oriental food and authentic Mexican. Our local Brewery has a great view of the river and mountains as well good brew! There is a 8 hole golf course that is well maintained and loved. We have a wildlife refuge and center, has a 5 mile drive through the wet lands where many species of wildlife can be viewed ( depending on the season) Interaction with GuestsWe like a chat, feel it is fun to meet our guests, but we are busy ourselves and are happy to have guests come and go as they please ( please just drive slow as we share the road, have had painted turtles on the road, so please avoid or just remove to side) let us know if you would prefer Addie, pup, not to visit, she's a good girl and will stay home. If you bring your dog, let us know if it feels like a play date. There are beehives on the property. They are away from the cabin and far enough off the drive to safely walk by, please do not approach hives. I water the plants in front of the cabin, but try to do it when guests are gone. In the winter we keep road plowed and road is flat can get in and out during that season with front wheel drive , if very icey rear wheel can be difficult. The NeighborhoodThe property is country, but close to town, 3 miles, we live on the property too, but cabin is past and off to the side init's own grove of pines, we have a 6' bamboo privacy fence at the edge of our pine grove.
We have a fairly close bakery and country store 1/4 mile and Hardware is just past that, a truck stop is at the junction of 95 and 2. Has good hardy food too! All you can eat fish and chips Friday! We have a organic farming couple across the road and many nice quiet families on their well kept acres in the area. But the wonderful mountain views as one drives to the property. Lots to eat, drink and do outdoors here! Occasionally there is a happiness at the local Pearl theater and we are scheduled for our movie theater to be reopened after renovations at a later date.
