Four of us were headed to Glacier National Park, and stayed at the Mcfarland Inn. It's a stunning home in a beautiful old neighborhood in Coeur d'Alene.
When we rang the bell, Nancy, the owner, answered the door and showed us around. The two rooms that we got were really nice. My boyfriend and I had the Mcfarland room, which had a king bed, and our friends had a nearby room with a queen. Both had private bathrooms within the rooms and were on the upper level.
Nancy had an AC unit going for us, which we promptly shut off and opened the big, old windows to enjoy fresh air and the sounds of Foster Ave. It rained, but there are big overhangs, so you can leave the windows wide open while you sleep with no worry. Our room also had a TV and DVD player - we never even opened the cabinet they were in we were enjoying ourselves to much.
After we got settled, Nancy kindly offered some wine and snacks to be set out for us to enjoy, which were complimentary. We accepted the gesture and enjoyed a couple bottles of wine in the cozy back sun room.
The breakfast was very delicious, had a ton of options and completely filled us up. Nancy was down in the breakfast area chatting with us and with one of the other guests.
I know that we will find ourselves in Coeur D'Alene again someday, and I know that we will be checking in at the Mcfarland.
The only note that I would make is that I don't know what Nancy's kid policy is, but in my opinion, this wouldn't be a good option for people with kids. This is an old house with nice furnishings - it's not a hotel with a pool where you can walk through with wet feet. In addition, I think that most people check in as couples expecting a romantic feel (which we had) or as singles looking for quiet respite. There were no kids there when we stayed.
