A beautiful place, excellent service, cozy and private accommodation.
It amazed us how in such a remote setting within the Coeur D'Alene national forest mountains, you could experience such culinary exuberance with not just one chef but several including a pastry chef who provided personal attention especially to those with dietary needs. The wine selection was exquisite, ensuring a vast variety of local vintages to satisfy a varied clientel.
The varied offered activities besides the daily basic to advanced horseback riding were fun and at times challenging and all the more enjoyable in the beautiful setting.
The evening bonfire get-togethers with the local cowboy poet/singer was an unforgettable experience, especially since the multi-talented staff joined in with their musical contribution.
It was hard to leave the warm and cozy comfort of the plush bed but we made it to Amanda's morning yoga/stretch sessions to get us ready for the full day's activities.
