Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8+)

If you really enjoyed staying here you should make it your second home for $189,000!

We bought The Cedars house to make it a home for ourselves and you, our guests. We visit to play and relax and hope you do too. WELCOME!

The home was built in 1913 by the manager of the silver mine up the street. At the time it was one of the nicest luxury homes in Kellogg. Complete with leaded glass windows, leaded glass china cabinet in the dining room, 9’ ceilings, and 1913 vintage chandeliers. It was huge by the standards of the day. We have fully remodeled it, (except for the laundry room) preserving the vintage features but outfitting it with modern appliances. It’s now a 2677 square foot vacation rental that sits on a third acre corner lot which is a perfect place to porch sit and watch people go by. The house has a very warm feel to it. It's ideal for family get-together’s and friends who come as a group to get away from the rat race. It has very large rooms that are beautifully decorated. It has tile and hardwood floors and a tile shower with double shower heads. Luxury living at a very reasonable price.

We use the house as a base for adventures to all the exciting places to visit and things to do. We river raft, ski, board, swim, fish, bike, hike, explore old mine ruins, pick huckleberries, eat and eat some more, and visit friends we've made. Silver Mountain Resort virtually always has activities going on. They have live bands, sporting competitions on the mountain (skiing, riding, biking, frisbee throwing) and in their pool surfing. They host music events, charity events, local events, etc. We provide an 8 page directory of things to do within 50 miles of Kellogg both via email and printed and in the house. This is the fun capital of N Idaho.

What makes this house unique

This valley, Silver Valley, is an amazing combination of 2010 and 1900 characteristics. You can eat steak at a restaurant built in 1892 and still looks like it did when it was built, a cow bell hanging over the door announces you as you enter. On the way back to 'The Cedars', stop at Silver Mountain Resort and have a Mint Mojito while visiting with people from Europe. You can walk underground into a silver/gold mine and see actual Silver and Gold veins as well as the actual implements used in 1920 to mine the ore. Walk back above ground and visit the Bordello Museum on your way to having a Huckleberry beer at a local brewery in town. You can hike or bike anywhere in the world but only here can you do it along a trail with historical markers indicating a cave where 40 miners hid when a raging wild fire that darkened the sky all the way to Europe, passed overhead. America doesn't have much history, especially out west. But Kellogg (Silver Valley) has what’s available and it is still alive and visible for all to enjoy.

Old Charm

Loved the house and was sad to hear it won't be a vacation rental for much longer. Clint was great at getting information to me and offering me suggestions. Thank you for the home!

Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

As a member of a club at Gonzaga University, we stayed in this house in January of 2016 and again January of 2017 and we couldn't be happier with our stay. The owners are very accommodating and provided excellent customer service. The size of the house was perfect for eight people and the kitchen was fully equipped to cook a good meal. Only downside is the internet can get really slow with 8 people connected plus the Roku streaming device provided with the TV in the living room.

Multiple Family Get Together

  • 5 of 5

We booked this rental for a long weekend trip with another family. The house was perfect for what we needed. We had young school age children with us, and the room with a full bed and 2 twins was perfect for the kids to have their own room to hang out in and "have a sleepover." The size of the house was perfect, the location of the house was perfect and the owner was easy to work with and answered all questions right away. We would definitely stay here again.

Silver Mountain Resort

The main attraction in the summer is Biking, Fishing and ATV - 4 Wheeling. The Hiawatha Trail for biking is incredible with 8 tunnels and 7 trestles running through the mountains. The main attraction in the winter is Skiing, Snowboarding, and Snowmobiling. We bought the house because we love skiing and snowboarding at Silver Mountain Resort and Lookout Pass. The Coeur d' lane and St Joe rivers offer fishing, whitewater rafting and boating. We've done all 3 activities on these 2 beautiful rivers. There are 3 Golf courses within 10 miles and several more in Coeur d' lane. Of the 3 courses nearby, 2 are 'mountain' courses. On these courses, if the animals on the fairway are over 300lbs you let them play through. The Silver Mountain Resort has a water park and there is another one about an hour away. The mines offer tours and nearby Wallace (10 mi) is a historical preservation town.
