About Norm or Sheila Gibbons
My husband and myself grew up in the area and live in Spokane Valley. We have worked and owned an excavation business for 20 years and were also employed with the school district and Kaiser Aluminum. After retirement we decided to venture out and purchase the Log Home from the family trust. We wanted to share this unique Log Home that was built by my parents and many family members. Our kids and now grandkids all love coming to the Log Home for Christmas and summertime activities making many cherished memories.
Norm or Sheila Gibbons purchased this House in 2017
Why Norm or Sheila Gibbons chose Newport
Our family was the second owner of this property in which we purchased it in 1960 from one of the original owners, Frank Trowbridge. His family homesteaded it in 1905. It sat on 170 acres in amongst cedar groves and natural running springs. The original house burned down in the 70's and was rebuilt in the 80's.
What makes this House unique
We also have a 100 plus year old barn on site. It is registered on the Washington Heritage Barn site. Known as the "Ashenfelter Bay Farm" (or The Trowbridge Farm). It's a great place to take pictures and just enjoy some memories of the old days.

This was the perfect get-away for us. Sitting on the front porch enjoying the early mornings was my favorite part. This property is gorgeous and Sheila was so wonderful to work with.
We are so happy you enjoyed yourselves. We love looking at the wildlife out the doors. The deer love the apple orchard. Hope you got to enjoy seeing all the activity. Thank you for taking such good care of out home. Come back again.

So comfortable and relaxing. Thank you for the awesome stay!
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. You were wonderful guests and thank you for taking great care of our place. Hope you can come back again sometime. Your boys were adorable.
This is a great place to stay! Lots of room for socializing in the kitchen, dining, living room and out on the back deck. It is private and in a beautiful location! Very close to town if you need to run to the grocery store. We attended our son's wedding while there and wished we had been able to spend more time relaxing at this house! Yes the counter tops are orange, but they are clean and in excellent condition which is what is most important in my opinion. They add to the charm of this house! Sheila was very friendly, accommodating and so easy to work with! I highly recommend staying in the Log Home Getaway!
Thank you for staying with us. Please come back and stay again when you have more time. You were wonderful guests and the house was so clean when you left. Thank you for taking great care of our orange counter tops and the rest of the house. Take Care and Thank you again. Sheila
Could not have asked for a better place to stay! The cabin was clean, well stocked with the basics and extras, owner was fast to respond, thorough, kind, and wanted to make sure we had everything we needed. Property is gorgeous, perfectly located close enough to town but secluded enough to be tucked away and private. It was perfect for our two kids, grandma and a set of parents. Thank you Sheila for a great stay, can't wait to book it next year!!
Thank you for staying with us. We loved hosting you and your family. So glad everything worked out well and thank you for taking such good care of our property. Hope to see you next year.
