Excellent Resource for everything in Coeur d'Alene

5 on September 04, 2014

It was a delightful experience. I have celiac disease. Because of that, travel can be a difficult challenge for me. Nancy was very knowledgeable about gluten and went beyond my expectations to accommodate my needs. She was also knowledgeable about restaurants that also would be able to provide gluten free meals for me. Nancy was also an excellent resource WRT Coeur d'Alene. She first learned what we were interested in and then directed us accordingly. The accommodations were very delightful. Built in the early 1900's, the house has all the charm of the era. Nancy has done a lot to restore the home the its character of the past. This was our first stateside BNB that we've done. It was a much better experience than what we experienced abroad. We had a great vacation; probably one of the best we've ever had.

Great stay!

The McFarland Inn is lovely and conveniently located in downtown Coeur d'Alene. Inn keeper, Nancy, is a bit controlling- but so helpful, and she keeps a beautifully appointed and comfortable BnB and the breakfast and "happy hours" are fantastic. We would definitely stay again.

Great Location to Coeur d'Alene

Lovely B&B & Hospitality!

Lovely getaway, great hospitality, beautiful grounds and excellent breakfast at McFarland Inn. My husband and I weren't at the B&B for as long as we would have liked - we got in late in the day, had plans north of CDA and took off right after breakfast the next day - but loved the short time we were there. The breakfast enchiladas are not to be missed!

Mini Honeymoon

5 on November 25, 2012

This was by far the best weekend date of our 13 years together. We've never been to a B&B before so we weren't sure what to expect. The hospitality of Nancy was perfection to say the least. She made us feel so comfortable & at home. We felt like we were on a cozy vacation in a place that was intimate and private. Her breakfast dishes were to die for! I even left there with a recipe of one of the meals we are. Nancy, we can't thank you enough for the relaxation and wonderful memories that we have of our "mini honeymoon". ~ The Grizzle's

This beautiful historic home is quiet and comfortable. The meals are delicious with a variety of choices. Nancy truly goes above and beyond to provide wonderful meals, a comfortable stay, and assists guests in recommending local activities and restaurants.

Wonderful B&B

5 on May 28, 2012

My husband and I spent 3 wonderful nights at the McFarland Inn. Nancy is a wonderful hostess and made us feel very comfortable. We also loved Lily & Toby. The Inn is beautifully maintained and wonderfully clean with all the amenities you could want. The breakfast is made with love and care. Wonderful fruit each day as well as amazing "Nancy's Famous French Toast". Yummy! I would highly recommend the McFarland Inn. We hope to come back!

Great stay

My wife and I just recently stayed at this cozy little B&B for two days and it was quite delightful. Nancy, the woman who owns and operates it, does a wonderful job of making you feel at home. We were new to the area so she gave us plenty of advice on where to go and what to do. The breakfasts she made were delicious, filling, and quite healthy (plenty of fruit ! yum.) Overall, I would highly recommend the MacFarland Inn!

Just slow life down & rejuvenate!

Nancy was so generous as to have us for a complimentary veterans day getaway. We got to enjoy the hot tub, the warm hospitality, and the relaxing atmosphere. We were honored to meet her father who has served in WWII and her brother-in-law who served in Vietnam. We can't express how grateful we are to her and her family for having us be apart of their Veterans day breakfast gathering. Delicious breakfast, absolutely the most comfortable bed around. This is the essence of what a bed and breakfast should be. If you are looking for a way to slow life down, and rejuvenate this is the place.
