Beautiful B&B in quiet foothill area of Coeur d' Alene, surrounded by peaceful meadows and forests, only 5+ miles from the busy town of Coeur d' Alene. Very friendly atmosphere. Wonderfully gracious hosts, Brian and Shar, who are great cooks and anxious to recommend local restaurants (all of which we now recommend) and attractions. Brian is the best source of... More

From the moment you walk in the door, you feel like you are a cherished friend or family member. As we arrived, we were immediately greeted by Brian coming out to welcome us and offering to help with out luggage. Then we came in and were offered cookies and beverages by Char. We were given a tour and then left... More

We will treasure your kind remarks! Our 24 hour snack bar is kept stocked with fine teas and our instant hot water is always available for a cup of tea, cocoa or cider. Coffee is available upon request and there are always freshly baked cookies or sugar free treats. Glad you enjoyed the snack area! More

This was the MOST AMAZING STAY!!! Brian & Shar are the perfect pair hosting the finest B&B in CDA! The location is 15min from all the action, yet remote enough away for a peaceful relaxing setting.

Thanks for your kind remarks.

This was our first visit to Idaho, but it won't be our last - especially to Coeur d'Alene! And there is no doubt that we will be staying with Brian and Shar; they are easily in our top 3 list of hosts we have had the pleasure of meeting. (And we have stayed in many B&B's!)

Thanks you for your kind remarks! We are so happy you took the time to enjoy the grounds here at American Country.

We spent two nights with Brian and Shar at their warm and friendly B&B. Breakfasts were delicious, coffee always on hand, cookies a pleanty, and good recommendations on things to see and where to eat with good coupons too boot. They treat their guests as friends.

Thanks for your kind remarks. We enjoy the fact that our 5 acre setting offers the peace and quiet of the countryside but yet getting to the action in the heart of downtown is just a few minutes drive away! In fact, our favorite restaurant, a very unique venue as it floats on Lake Coeur d'Alene at the mouth of... More

There is absolutely nothing you could complain about this place. Brian and Shar make sure that you feel at home in all prospects with their wonderful hospitality.

We have visited this wonderful B & B for a third time now and it is never a disappointment. Super clean with attention to every last detail. Nothing is overlooked.

We liked this place, although it was not what we expected. Start with the hosts: Shar and Brian wrote the book on BNB gracious hosting. I think they implement every trick imaginable: turndown service, lush robes, pillow chocolates, departure photo, etc. They are very devoted to their guests, they know CDA, and have a lot of good advice. The breakfast... More
