This place is just a few blocks from downtown and so you can walk nearly anywhere. We stayed in room #1 which is large and beautiful with a private bath with a claw foot tub. Lots of large windows overlook the main street so even though the woodwork is dark, you still get plenty of light. Coffee in the room but no refrig - however you have full use of the refrig in the kitchen downstairs and they leave it stocked for you. Water bottles, wine, beer, fresh fruit, cheeses and more! Breakfast is included and you just help yourself to a continental "plus" breakfast. Cereals, fruit, yogurt, fresh made pastries, breads and jams and sliced meats as well as coffee, tea and juice. Staff is friendly and can offer ideas of things to see in the area. There is a great 3 mile hike on Tubbs Hill nearby as well as everything Coeur d'Alene has to offer! Bed is very comfortable and the decor of the entire house is beautiful. There is a pool table and basement theater room with shuffleboard. The negatives are few: it is an old house so you will hear people walking above you if you are not on the top floor. Room #1 is at the top of the stairs so you do hear people coming and going. As well, because you are on the front of the house, you hear the traffic noise outside. They use a lot of fabric softener so if you are sensitive to smells, the sheets and towels have a somewhat strong odor, though it is pleasant. None of these things would stop me from returning!
