The SpaceWe accessorized the guesthouse space with the Airbnb traveler in mind, in hopes that it has everything you need for a comfortable and convenient stay. This is a completely separate 750 sq. ft. guest home that sits adjacent to the main house.
~The living room boasts two large, comfy couches, a ceiling fan, flat-screen TV (with DISH network), various board games, and a desk nook. (While we do have Wi-fi access on the property, please note that it tends to get spotty in the living room area of the guesthouse.)
~Inside the bedroom, you’ll find a queen pillow-top bed surrounded by rustic farmhouse windows, with an adjoining lighted outdoor patio.
~The bathroom has a shower/tub with full-sized body wash, shampoo and conditioner, hair dryer, as well as complimentary toothbrush and toothpaste, in case you forget!
~The kitchenette has a full gas range, full-sized refrigerator and microwave, coffeemaker, basic kitchen accessories, and 2-chaired bistro table for dining.

It’s a quiet area, with friendly patrons who enjoy their privacy, and who will respect yours. Feel free to come and go as you please, and wander the property grounds if you need some fresh air. You may even spot some of the local wildlife, which includes coyotes, deer, skunks and porcupines. Getting AroundShould you decide to explore the region, here is an idea of what you will find:

Kamiak Butte Trail – Located between Palouse and Pullman, this is a great hiking destination, with incredible views.
Steptoe Butte - A photographer's dream...
Palouse – Just an 8 mile drive, Palouse features some cute antique shops, a grocery store, and a couple of restaurants and cafes.

Pets: We do have one large and happy lab, as well as a friendly senior Boston Terrier (and a welcoming cat, who thinks he’s a dog). While outdoors, the dogs are leashed for walks and potty breaks, but will not invade your privacy. They sure would love to meet you, though, so if you are an animal lover, please feel free to give them a pet. They will voice their welcome to you upon your arrival, but acclimate quickly to new and safe visitors. **We are not yet equipped for the traveling Airbnb dog, but hope to be by springtime, when we add a safety fence on the property.**
