A completely restful perfect experience. Brian and Char are perfect hosts and have perfected pampering guests from coffee and fruit in the morning delivered to the room, customized breakfast tailored to distraught needs, making dinner reservations and many other things. The inn is tastefully decorated and the landscape perfectly manicured. The beautiful gazebo, suitable for wedding renewal vows, is amazing. Certainly a value for the price charged. Thank you Brian and Char for a memorable time. The inn has become out go to destination

As I am from Post Falls, we don't typically stay in hotels/accommodations because we have so much family in the area. But this was our getaway vacation from the little ones and we were very pleased with our choice in stay! Their home is absolutely stunning and they were very courteous, outgoing, and a pleasure to visit with. I would highly recommend their B&B to anyone that wants to stay out of town just a little bit and enjoy the serene environment that they have to offer!

Signature Dish

Praline Baked French Toast
This fabulous breakfast dish will make you feel pampered and spoiled. It is prepared the night before and topped with butter, light brown sugar, chopped pecans, light syrup, cinnamon and ground nutmeg. Then baked for 40 minutes until puffed and lightly golden. Served with a variety of toppings, but most of our guests prefer warm Wisconsin Maple syrup.
