About the Property

Farmhouse, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s) and bunk beds, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

Brookside Acres offers the ultimate in country accommodations and 140 private acres with trailheads that wind into the solitude of nature in all seasons. Trails will take you onto additional thousands of acres of private timber and state land. Plan on encountering wildlife but not people or noisy machines. Ride out on your own horse or slip on your hiking boots at the back door , grab your camera and take off for an hour or half the day. In summer, take a dip in our pool and soak up the sunshine. In winter, backcountry ski or snowshoe at your level of expertise, or just cozy up by the outdoor firepit with simmering hot chocolate. Watch the moon rise as you soak in your private hot tub right outside the door. However you choose to spend your day, you're sure to feel rejuvenated and rested in the 'Roost', our guest house at Brookside.

You may also enjoy skiing at any three ski resorts within 90 minutes of Brookside: 49 Degrees North, Mt. Spokane, and Schweitzer Ski Resort. Silver Mountain is a bit further. Stoneridge Golf and Recreation Resort is a ten-minute drive and offers year around pool and hot tub. You'll find many other golf courses for summer use in our area. And of course Silverwood Theme Park is a North Idaho jewel with a fantastic water park and amusement rides that will surprise you - 30 minutes away on country roads.

The 'Roost' has been in operation three years and has a fresh, new feel. At 1900 s.f. it is spacious but cozy. Many more photos of the ranch and accommodations are available to you at the Brookside website. Just click onto 'Links' at the top of the page. Our current rate is very affordable at $95 per night with accommodation for six.

We offer fine furnishings including comfortable king-sized beds, two full bathrooms and complete kitchen and laundry. The living room is equipped with a 36' TV, with TVO Direct TV and DVD machine (and a good supply of family approved movies). Enveloped by farm and timberland, you'll likely be wakened each morning by our friendly rooster, Beethoven, and lulled to sleep by the sounds of the nearby creek, horses nickering and coyotes crying in the distance.

Brookside Acres is located at the far west end of Blanchard Valley and, since 1939, has been a diary farm, a cattle ranch, has been logged numerous times as has the surrounding area. Larry and Bonnie Reichert are taking a more conservative approach and continue to raise hay for sale and their own livestock. Guests are welcome to bring their own horses and ride surrounding trails.

In the foothills of the Selkirks, Mt. Spokane at 5400’ is the highest nearby mountain. Brookside Acres sits at 2700’ and is accessed from the west over a small pass which elevation equals that of Snoqualmie Pass in the Washington Cascades. You’ll normally find the pass enshrouded with snow through April. From the east, Brookside lies six miles from the town of Blanchard, Idaho.

We are certain that you’ll enjoy and prize these surroundings as we do.
