"The Old Homestead" An Original Homestead Cabin

Bedrooms 2
Space 800 sq ft
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

"The Old Homestead" Actually Is An Original Homestead, Built 1943.

It is situated on 22 acres, on a quiet country road, away from highways. We have satellite TV, Internet and AT&T cell phone access. There is a convenient, clean propane stove, and a fully equipped kitchen. We can set up a ping pong table for you, and you can make a cozy fire in the outdoor fire pit. Watch deer, turkeys, elk and moose, and occasionally the neighbor's hound dog right from the front porch.

Enjoy watching our horses roam around behind it, or bring your own. Just remember, our pasture is not a golf course, so we cannot be responsible for any injuries to your horse.

You will be just minutes away from world class boating, fishing, snowmobiling, or hiking or riding endless mountain trails. Or cross country ski right out the back door. The closest ski lift is 1 1/2 hours away in Sandpoint, Idaho.

If you don't feel like cooking yourself, there are fabulous restaurants and lounges in Trout Creek and nearby towns.

Secluded property with a well-outfitted historic homestead cabin. The delightful owners live on an adjoining property and go out of their way to make sure your stay is top-notch! We will be back, without a doubt. Trout Creek is a quaint town that offers outdoor fun no matter the season!

Excellent private place

  • 5 of 5

Just like having your own oasis. Quiet, nicely appointed, homey, very clean, room for our dog to wander. (They even left him a welcome bisquit on the counter!) Perfect accommodations for a weekend getaway. Erika and Dieter are excellent hosts. They made sure we were comfortable and were available in case we needed anything. We will be back.
