An amazing sweet 16!!!!
We had a truly amazing experience staying at Maria and Carl's beautiful home! From the minute we walked in the door, we were welcomed and spoiled. We were celebrating my daughter's sweet 16. The party included my husband and myself, along with my daughter and 3 of her closest friends. Maria thought of every detail to make our night incredible. From delicious food to henna tattoos, hot yoga to face masks, everything was perfect. And the house itself was beautiful! Stunning views, sunrise from the hot tub, the perfect birthday dinner and dessert, we had it all! Maria took the time to find out what my daughter liked and planned the entire party around her. What a surprise it was to walk into a house decorated just for her, they all felt like royalty! I would definitely recommend a stay here to celebrate a special occasion. We will be back!
Escape to Idaho
We spent a night at the C&M Bunkhouse at the end of a vacation. The seclusion and service were a perfect end to a trip for a pair of weary travelers. The food was fantastic and we loved the show put on my the elk herds.
Thank you for the nice review. We really enjoyed meeting you both. I look forward to buying some items from Fuzzy Slippers!
The B&B is in a beautiful location with gorgeous scenery. Maria and Carl are excellent hosts and great company! Carl's food was delicious. We would love to have stayed longer as one night wasn't enough! Hoping that we will be able to visit there again one day.
Aww. Thanks Kimberly. We loved having you two. You are great to hang out with!
Better than expected!!!!
All I can say is wow, wow, wow!! The 'bunkhouse' was much better than expected. Maria and Carl have taken pride in the careful attention to details to make every guest comfortable with their stay. Whether you want to hideaway and get away from the world outside or if you just want to rest and relax in the mountains and enjoy good food, fresh air, a good book, a hike in the mountains or a river raft ride, they make your stay very memorable!! I highly recommend this property!!!
Beautiful location, great hosts, and killer food!
Awesome place to stay near Boise! Great food and wonderful hosts!
Thanks for the great review! We enjoyed your stay. Can't wait till the next time.
The mark of an outstanding business is outstanding service. C and M Bunkhouse is a truly outstanding bed and breakfast (and dinner if you like). We booked our stay online four months in advance and due to a faulty third party website did not know that the rooms were already booked. When Maria discovered the problem, about four weeks from our trip, she called right away. As we talked she made it clear that she did not want to see our travel plans dashed and asked for a few days to work on the issue.The long and the short of it is that she managed to create space for us that was in no way a downgrade from what we had expected. The entire house and it's amenities were available for our enjoyment. Having a former chef doing the cooking was a real treat. We took full advantage of the opportunity to have dinners there.
The hosts, the accommodations, the location, and the food are all top shelf. Don't hesitate to stay here.

Thank you so much. Glad it all worked out. You and Dee are welcome at the Bunkhouse anytime!
