Aspen Meadows Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #5 of 10 Coeur d'Alene B&B and Inns
GreenLeadersBronze level
Reviewed 12 July 2014

My wife and I chose this B&B, in part, because I had never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast. Another reason was after seeing Brian and Shar's picture on their website; they both looked so warm and welcoming. After meeting them, and staying at American Country, we can say that it is so true. They were the most gracious of hosts; making us feel so pampered, while still treating us like friends. The Master "Sweet" was incredible! A private little patio, comfy bed, soft and warm robes, jacuzzi tub and bubble bath and a sweet treat on the pillow. The breakfast was delicious and thoughtfully prepared. Brian and Shar joined right in on the conversations. My wife and I learned of how the B&B came about. It is obvious that these two people take great pride (and much effort) in running their Bed and Breakfast. It is so elegant and professional, yet warm and cozy. First rate recommendation, for sure! A wonderful way to end our honeymoon vacation. Also, the country store decor is great!

We are so happy that your 1st stay in a B&B was a very positive experience for you both, and we thank you for your kind words. Our Big Sweet is a popular room, particularly for Honeymooners! Hopefully, you will return for many anniversaries to come, we promise to provide another pampered experience and an opportunity to enjoy a variety of different breakfast delights.

This B&B is located far enough from the major road to ensure quiet and peaceful relaxation, and near enough to the "action," to cause it to be ideally located. Brian and Shar, two very likeable folks, obviously studied the area when locating American Country B&B. Friendly owners, great food, peaceful mornings, tasty coffee and treats before a gourmet breakfast, exceptionally clean facilities, beautiful structure, and a great location, all add up to a great place to getaway to.

Room Tip: This is a B&B with four very clean rooms. Any of the four would be a good choice.

Thanks for your kind words! We have been remarking since you left, and sharing with our other guests, that the short time you spent with us was certainly filled with great activities. Your "Birds Of Prey" cruise in Sandpoint, although not close to what you were surrounded by when living in Alaska, was still a highlight. We look forward to your next visit and know that there are many more adventures that await you here in Coeur d'Alene.

We have stayed here several times, and it just keeps getting better and better. Brian and Shar are amazing hosts. Every detail is perfect and the atmosphere is so incredibly warm and friendly. Need a restaurant recommendation? A dinner reservation? The name of the best spa? Where to find the best shopping? Whatever you need, they can help you - and their recommendations are spot on.

The location has a remote feel to it, but is actually just minutes from shopping, dining, downtown, and Lake Coeur d'Alene. The rooms are well appointed, and there is even a tree house room available! Breakfast is always superb, and you'll never go away hungry. The coffee is outstanding, and there are always cookies to munch on and candy in the candy bowls. My favorite is what I call the "good morning" tray: coffee and a muffin served to your room first thing in the morning; a little something to wake you up and tide you over until breakfast.

I love staying here, and I bet you will too.

Thanks again for your kind words! We too enjoy your visits here at American Country. We look forward to your stays with us, and spending time with you, and your traveling companions and dear friends. I think the highlight of this visit was our evening in the Gazebo sampling ports and sharing lots of laughs and great conversations! We are so glad your 4th of July VIP Cruise on Lake Coeur d'Alene to see the fabulous fireworks was so enjoyable! Hope this trip becomes a tradition for you and your friends!

Oh my gosh, what a wonderful and warm welcoming vacation weekend at Brian and Shar's American Country Bed and Breakfast! My husband and I stayed there for the Ironman Weekend and the hotel we had originally tried to book was full, and thankfully so...as we then booked this B&B and had a wonderful experience! First, the food (amazing!), accommodations, and location were awesome! Second, the personal attention to detail was unexpected and over the top. The turn down service, the (very) early pre race breakfast, AND the greeting us in the driveway after completing 140.6 mile Ironman race, was simply, the icing on the cake! We felt like we were family, right from the start. I'm afraid this will spoil us from enjoying any future B&B visits. We checked in as strangers and left as friends.

Room Tip: you cant' choose a bad room!

One thing for sure, our wonderful Ironman athletes always hold a special place in our hearts! We never forget them, and the stories we share with future guests that attend or participate in the event each year, always include these special individuals that have stayed with us in previous years.
A 140.6 mile race in water, on bikes and on foot is not for everyone, and those that do choose to train, and go for the medal, are indeed unique in that respect! We will always admire their tenacity and remarkable fitness!
We so enjoyed your stay with us, and hope to see you both again soon for the next Ironman in Coeur d'Alene.

...such words are not an exaggeration. Brian and Shar's American Country Bed and Breakfast is just that! Brian and Shar are genuine, warm, and welcoming. The rooms are quaint, charming, and spotless. Breakfasts are gourmet. Touches such as coffee served to your room (even at 4:30 AM prior to Ironman race!), afternoon tea and cookies, evening fires at the gazebo, and turn down service with a chocolate on your pillow, make this B&B extraordinary.

My Goodness, you are too kind! I don't know if we can claim that our breakfast is a true "gourmet" experience, but we will guarantee that you will enjoy some great meals at our table that include pastries, fresh fruits, always a potato dish of some kind (after all...you're in Idaho), bacon, ham or sausage and a special entre!

My wife and I decided to enjoy our anniversary in Coeur d'Alene and we found the American Country B & B on trip advisor. Of course, with its top rating we had to go there and experience for ourselves what others said was a great B & B. Well, I can only say that it was every bit as good as the others have reviewed; in fact I couldn't find a single negative in what Shar and Brian have created. From the moment we arrived I knew it would be good in the way Brian came out to our car to greet us. Brian and Shar were delightful hosts, and everything about the B & B was extremely well presented. One can not find a better place to stay in Coeur d'Alene than the American Country B & B. It is a great experience!!!!!

Room Tip: We enjoyed the Big Sweet. It was a perfect room for a special occasion.

Your thoughtful remarks make us smile. One of the things that Brian enjoys most about being an innkeeper here is being able to greet guests curbside as they pull into the parking area in front of the B&B. We don't always have that opportunity, but whenever possible, meeting our guests and helping to carry in their luggage is an important part of what we do to make sure that our "Welcome Never Felt So Good" for all of our guests.

.......and it doesn't get any better than this! American Country B&B is by far the BEST B&B around.

OK, so we are a tad bit prejudiced because we have stayed numerous times...enough to try out every room and love every one of them. But there is a reason why we keep returning time and time again: It is truly a wonderful place! Brian and Shar go out of their way to make each and every guest feel like they are the only guest there at the time. From arrival to departure no request goes unanswered (sometimes they think of things even before the guest does).

American Country has won yet another Trip Adviser award - this time for 2014. The awards just keep piling up and there is a reason for that - American Country is outstanding!!

We have said it on previous reviews: no need to hesitate about booking at American Country. Everything will be perfect. The whole place is spotless, the food scrumptious and the inn keepers are the sweetest people you could ever meet.

Also, as we've said before, the hardest part about staying at American Country is when it comes time to leave. But we always leave with a big smile and a warm hug knowing that we will return.
Can't wait!

Room Tip: All the rooms are wonderful!!
