Charming B&B

4.8 on October 20, 2015

Very charming B&B. Our room was spacious and cozy and the bed was very comfortable. The location was perfect for walking to activities. We would certainly stay again.

A wonderful property

We recently stayed here on a short weekend getaway to Coeur d'alene. The Blackwell Hotel is a beautiful property, with fabulous rooms and amenities. It's clear the property has been recently renovated. The rooms were large, comfortable and well maintained. We also enjoyed the extras like the pool table and game rooms. The breakfast was basic continental fare, but met our expectations. There was a nice variety of choices. Overall the stay was wonderful, the property great and the staff was very nice and helpful! I would recommend to anyone wanting a cozy place to stay in CDA!

Classy, quaint, and great location!

Avoid the large resort (and their fees) and choose the Blackwell instead. The three story house is lovely and decorated with Sinatra-like class. Modern furnishings with a throwback to the forties-fifties are comfortable in the common areas on the main floor as old big band tunes play in the background. It feels like you are staying with a rich friend rather than in a hotel. You have your own house key and lock it yourself as you come and go. We stayed in room number 7 on the third floor with a private bath, facing the back yard. Be advised that you may see squirrels running by the window or hear them on the roof. The ceiling is slanted in places, which at first worried us because we are both over 6 feet tall but it was a non-issue. Rooms are comfortable and updated. Keep in mind there is no AC but there is a box fan in the closet which sufficed plus the evenings were cool. We kept the windows open the entire time. If you need to iron something, you have to go down to the laundry room in the basement do to so. It is actually nice down there with an entertainment area, large flat screen, and shuffleboard. Staff was very friendly and the continental breakfast each morning was more than adequate with assorted breads, quiches, hard boiled eggs, yogurt and fresh fruit. There is also a great Java cafe right across the street. You can also purchase a bottle of wine from the kitchen. One night we ordered pizza and easily just put our leftovers in the fridge with a note of our room number, again, as if we are house guests not hotel quests. Easy walking distance to shops, restaurants and the lake. We loved the quiet privacy and charm that Blackwell offers. If we return to Coeur d'Alene we will definitely stay here again. If you are looking for resort style amenities like room service, in-room ironing, safe, fridge, with 24-hour service, then this is not the place for you. Want a romantic, sophisticated getaway? Stay here!

Great Experience at the Historic Blackwell Home in Northern Idaho

We had such a good time with Bill! We felt not only cared for but also loved. The rooms are very clean, well decorated with attention to detail and very quiet at night. The breakfast was very delicious and light. I will visit Coeur d'Alene again only to stay here.

Great place to stay and great value too!

This B&B in Coeur D' Alene is awesome. Beautiful old home completely restored. Gorgeous furniture and artwork. Fantastic friendly staff. Walking distance to town and the lake. We loved it!

First trip to Coeur D''Alene

The guesthouse was comfortable with beautiful rooms. The establishment is not staffed 24 hrs but we knew that on booking. A short walk from the lake and beautiful downtown.

Amazing, romantic getaway

This hotel is like something from a bygone era. Our room was huge, comfortable, clean, and so quiet. We had a lovely first anniversary here and will definitely return.

Beautiful boutique B & B

Great location, could walk to many things. Beautiful home with wrap-a-round porch. Great continental breakfast. Not a fan of tubs with wrap-a-round shower curtains.

Only suggestions for me would be to launder the linens in an unscented detergent. Scent of what they use is very over bearing.

Sister Weekend

4.2 on April 23, 2015

My sister and I rented room 5 for a weekend away to celebrate her birthday. We had the best time relaxing on the patio, soaking in the hot tub, and playing shuffle board. The staff was very friendly and offered wonderful suggestions on how to spend our time around town. We parked our cars Friday night and didn't get back in them until it was time to go Sunday. We enjoyed all the shops, the dock, and hiking Tubbs Hill which were all just a short distance from the house. I would highly recommend Blackwell Hotel for anyone seeking a wonderful weekend away! Thanks!
