The history of the family who owns the Nordic Inn is amazing.
Michael will keep you entertained for hours with stories about his life, his war hero father and his extended family.
It's a quaint little place with only 9 rooms, but it has limited amenities in the small rooms. There are no ironing boards, hair dryers or guest laundry. There is no fitness room, but you can hike nearby trails, which is very enjoyable. It's only open from Memorial Day (weather permitting) through October 15.
The rooms are spotlessly clean and nicely decorated in a rustic style .You feel like you are staying in someone's simple, but comfortable home. The beds are somewhat firm and seem like they are ready for replacement.
The landscaping and abundant flowers throughout the grounds are gorgeous and impressive. The gazebo on the expansive lawn is a great spot to enjoy a glass of wine and conversation with friends and family.
Breakfast at the Brenthoven Restaurant is wonderful. Dinner was also delightful. Chef Brent goes out of his way to prepare unique meals that are made with love.
Guest are definitely treated like family by the folks at The Nordic Inn, and we enjoyed our stay very much, although I'd likely stay at the Flying Saddle Resort next time which is located across the highway if I was bringing others along, since it has a pool and hot tub, larger rooms with more amenities, a fitness center, a horseshoe pit, guest laundry, a view of the Snake River, a restaurant with a more varied menu, and can be booked for a lower price.
But, in most cases, we prefer to patronize family-run establishments where it makes sense.
