5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

We just returned from a 6 day stay at The American Country Bed and Breakfast. We had a nice stay and Shar and Brian are wonderful hosts and never miss a detail ! Chilled forks for your breakfast fruit and a wonderful assortment and variety of food at breakfast ! The cookies that were available were quite the temptation !
Also, it is very peaceful and enjoyed sitting in the gazebo in the evening ! If you are looking for a friendly,clean and cozy place to stay, you will not go wrong !

So happy to hear that your six day stay with us was memorable and exceeded your expectations. We try to provide an experience for all of our guests that will make them want to return again and again. We both love to cook, and our recipes have an International flair, as we try to provide a variety that is both palatable and unique.

This place has everything you could want from a B&B. Your hosts Brian and Shar make your stay truly memorable with so many personal touches. Amazingly comfortable beds, coffee to your room in the mornings, a beautiful house with so much great decorating, and amazing gourmet breakfasts! Not to mention super nice hosts! We had a wonderful time, would recommend this to anyone, and will go back!

Yes, we love our beds and linens too! The Comphy line of bedding that we provide our guests with is truly luxurious. We are so happy you noticed and enjoyed the pampering.

My wife Catherine and I spent a most wonderful week at the American Country B&B the first week of July. We had come to Coeur d' Alene to scout out the town to see whether or not we might want to move there, since I have recently retired. From the warm welcome when you first park and walk up to the front door until the last good-byes and picture taking when you leave, Brian and Shar make your experience most memorable.

Since we went to early Mass at St. Joan of Arc most mornings, we only had the morning tray once, but it was always beautiful to see. We made a point to be back for breakfast every day-do not miss it. The breakfasts were better than any 5-Star restaurant we have been to. Every morning it was a new delicious treat and the with the B&B cookbook we can try to making the breakfasts back home for ourselves. We stayed in the Big Sweet and enjoyed every minute. With the window open we could go to sleep and wake up to the beautiful bird songs coming from the woods close by. The Comphy bedding helped us get wonderful rest and we ordered and are now enjoying Comphy bedding at home. One night I used too much bubble bath and had bubbles rising like a mountain out of a Lucile Ball show, but I managed not to drown under the bubble mountain-it was great fun.

Aside from the wonderful facilities and tremendous food, the best part of staying at the American Country B&B are the Scotts. They really make you feel like you are at your own home. They pamper you incessantly and are willing to help you find places to go, things to do, and just fun activities in the area. The afternoon cookie snack and the evening sweet treat were always wonderful. We were extremely thankful that we had scheduled eight nights at the B&B-It really made our vacation stay most memorable. When the time came, it was really tough to say good bye to our new friends. Whenever we return to Coeur d' Alene in the future, we will certainly check to see if there is any "room at the inn" for us.

Room Tip: The biggest difference between the rooms is the size and location of bath facilities. The Big Sweet...

We so enjoyed your visit with us and are looking forward to your return to the area. We do have some wonderful churches here that are unique in many ways. Your enjoyment of what was offered by one in particular, was delightfully obvious. We are also fortunate enough to be in a location that reveals Mother Nature in all her glory and we are glad you took the opportunity to notice. Thanks for your kind words and gentle ways.

I had one goal - reward my road trip hating wife with a special night after traveling 2,000 miles in a rental car. After reading TripAdvisor reviews I settled on the American Country Bed and Breakfast. Mission accomplished!! Shar and Brian pampered us from the very beginning when Shar stepped out onto the front porch to welcome us seconds after the car stopped. She ushered us into a collector's paradise of Americana, the common room filled with antiques ranging from a marshmallow tin collection (didn't know they used to come in tins!) to a scrapbook filled with trade goods cards. Shar graciously upgraded our room after a guest cancellation, and we spent our night in jacuzzi-swirled luxury. Brian and Shar built the inn from scratch, every element in each room thoughtfully planned for maximum comfort and rest. Breakfast was aebleskiver, a traditional fried dumpling, chilled fruit plate, huckleberry yogurt, and a great hash brown dish served with Brian's homemade spicy ketchup. We both wish we could have stayed for a week. As wonderful as the room and breakfast were, the very best part of American Country are Brian and Shar, your innkeepers, who take a warm, personal interest in each guest and help set the tone for a relaxing stay. Thanks for making the end of a long road trip a special occasion!

So happy that we could make a part of your long road trip a wonderful and relaxing experience. We take great pride in pampering our guests and try to offer all the extras that any discriminating traveler may look for. We both enjoy cooking and the arrangement of our kitchen and dining rooms allows us to share our enjoyment and have great conversations with our guests while they dine. We have some excellent restaurants and we don't hesitate to make referrals for anyone staying with us.

Our first trip to Coeur d’Alene was a very enjoyable experience. Staying at American Country B&B was an incredible part of that! A great place away from everything yet only minutes from downtown. From the moment we arrived, Shar and Brian greeted us and instantly made us feel at home and very comfortable. The entire house was impeccably clean and intricately decorated.

Because of availability when booking out trip, we stayed in 2 rooms, the Big Sweet and the Holidaze. The rooms are large enough and have their own distinct advantages. While the Big Sweet has the Jacuzzi tub and the private patio, the Holidaze is an end room and doesn’t get any by-the-door traffic.

Breakfast consisted of fresh fruit, eggs, sausage and hashbrowns. Tea, coffee and juices rounded out this abundant feast. Fresh baked cookies were available through the day and made a nice treat!

Brian and Shar were very knowledgeable about the local area, which helped when making our daily plans. Lots of pamphlets and maps were readily available. They provided us with umbrellas, coolers and folding chairs when we needed them and Shay even coordinated our dinner reservations at some of the local restaurants!!

We have nothing but positive things to say about this B&B. If you’re looking for the perfect getaway in the Coeur d’Alene area, this is the only place you should consider!

Our 5 day stay at American Country Bed & Breakfast was such a pleasurable experience. Every morning started with a breakfast tray delivered to our door - fresh flowers, fresh baked breads, coffee juice - and it just got better! Every breakfast was outstanding - those round pancakes were my favorite! Brian and Shar prepared and served all the food. They are pleasant hosts who have a wonderful talent for listening to conversation and encouraging those who are quiet to join in. Their home is interesting, spotless, and comfortable inside and out. You can tell they love their home and enjoy sharing it with others. I love their flowers, the gazebo, the wrap around porch and the back patio - all perfect! They make it seem effortless because the enjoy what they do! Thank you both for opening your home to guests. We enjoyed your company! (and the candy on our pillows each night!)

Room Tip: I always try to talk personally by phone to the B & B owner.

Green Features: My husband had an interesting conversation with Brian about his well - good use of water. Also, thank goodness - no non-stop air conditioning; instead, open windows with fresh air!
