Award-winning Log Spirit B&B is a magnificent log lodge, nestled in 30 secluded acres, surrounded by woods and mountains - a quiet place to relax, yet close to a wide variety of year-round activities (see the "Fun Actvities" page on our website). From gourmet breakfasts you won't forget to spacious, comfortable rooms that all offer their own personalities, you'll enjoy our warm country hospitality at every turn. For vacations, getaways, weddings, anniversaries, family reunions, or any other special time, we invite you to share our spirit.
The Spring Room is our handicapped-accessible room, featuring a two-person walk- or roll-in shower and a wheelchair-accessible sink/vanity. Decorated in warm pastel colors, Spring has an antique metal queen-size bed, plus direct access to the covered deck outside. Please note that the rates shown are the maximum for two people; please ask about available discounts.
This main-floor room, facing the sunset with soft pastels and an antique metal queen-size bed, also has exterior entry to the eight-foot-wide covered wraparound deck, with chairs and a table just outside the door. Please note that the rates shown are the maximum for two people; please ask about discounts available.
On the northwest corner of the main floor, Autumn provides both mountain and sunset views - even better from the covered deck outside your second door - and is decorated in rich fall colors. The focal point is a massive log bed with hand-carved bears on two of the posts. Please note that the rates shown are the maximum for two people; please ask about available discounts.
Winter provides virtually unobstructed views of the mountains to the north, including Schweitzer Ski Resort, along with the surrounding woods - the exterior entry takes you right out onto the covered deck. Decorated in crisp blues and whites, this room also has a large log bed. Please note that the rates shown are the maximum for two people; please ask about available discounts.
This huge room located alone on the balcony level is often called the honeymoom suite. Midnight Dream features a custom-built king-size bed, extra storage, a sitting area, refrigerator, and a large private balcony with a hot tub, all overlooking the gardens and the waterfall and pond. Please note that the rates shown are the maximum for two people; please ask about available discounts.

My wife and I were wanting a night away to celebrate her birthday. The Log Spirit was just what we were looking for. quiet, clean and very private. for anyone in the North Idaho area looking for what Coeur d'Alene used to be like, spend a night with Robin and Lew. We will definitely be back. Thanks for the great night.

As soon as we walked in, we were greeted with amazing hospitality, and it just got better from there. The view from our room (we stayed in Winter) was breathtaking. Although, I'm sure regardless of what room you choose, all the views are spectacular. The hosts were so accommodating. Since we were there visiting Scarywood, and were going to be out until 1am, they delayed breakfast an hour, so we could sleep in a bit. And on the topic of breakfast.... I have never eaten so well first thing in the morning! This was truly an amazing place and I can't wait until my next visit!

It looked like it jumped off the magazine page, from the greatroom layout to the retail space. The rooms were magazine picture-ready as well, the flooring and log structure were spectacular. If you are comfortable living in a magazine, this is the perfect place...if you're looking for somewhere to relax and enjoy your space, you may want to keep looking. The pristine beauty of this property goes without question, however, the "welcome" factor was missing for us. Coming from a rich northwest mountain up-bringing, I don't know anyone "since Lewis & Clark" who is comfortable lounging on a buffalo skin draped over a sofa...and asigned seating at breakfast was crisp, we were seated with folks who live about 20 miles from where we live... After politely asking several times for a key to our room, my husband came away emptyhanded - so not an option for him to leave me sleeping from a 17-hour travel day while he explored the area...they were polite, yet firm that there was no need lock the room...

We had a perfect honeymoon. The midnight room was beautiful, large, clean, and had a very comfortable king size bed. Our room has it's own balcony and hottub. The rest of the log house was cozy and charmingly decorated. The breakfasts were delicious, all homemade. Some of the food was grown from their garden. The friendliest people, we felt very at home. They have an enormous property with a gorgeous view. We will be back!

We love the outdoors, as our location on 20 acres surrounded by woods and mountains shows. When time permits (which isn't often enough), we both enjoy riding our motorcycles and seeing this great country. But mostly we enjoy sharing this great log lodge with our guests, many of whom have become friends. We hope you'll join them!

Country Apple Fritters
Fresh apple slices dipped in a cinnamon-seasoned batter, cooked on a griddle much like a pancake, and served with warm maple syrup. Simple, but simply delightful!
