Feels like you are out on a farm, but really you are in town. Ride the bike trail 10 minutes to Downtown and 15 to Univ of Idaho. The "Barn" is a handcrafted English design from the 1400s with posts joined by with wooden pegs, and furnished with antiques.

The space
Peterson Barn is a 700 square foot building built as a house that looks like a barn. It has the character of a mountain hide-away with all the comforts of home. The main floor has kitchen, eating area, living room with vaulted ceiling and a bath. A heat pump provides heat & AC. The upstairs loft has two beds overlooking the living room. Peterson Barn is the perfect way to get away from it all without ever leaving town.

In the tradition of English cruck frames, the Peterson Barn was built by hand in 1997 from curved timbers. We felled and milled the trees, cut the joinery by hand, and did a barn raising with about a hundred of our closest friends. Many of the timbers are rescued urban hardwoods and each has a story. And the barn is gathering its own stories... honeymoons, anniversaries, holiday dinners, and even a home birth. We know you'll enjoy your stay.

GREEN your travel: We know it can be hard to keep your carbon footprint down while traveling. We are converting the barn to a carbon neutral building and buy renewable wind power for the electricity.

Cyclists: From the end of our driveway you can go east 14 miles on the Latah Trail's paved railbed to Troy, ID or west 8 miles via Moscow's Paradise Path to the Chipman Trail's paved railbed to Pullman, WA. There is also off-road biking on Moscow Mountain (see MAMBA Moscow Area Mountain Biking Assn).

Guest access
You are renting the main floor and sleeping loft of the Barn. We have a two car garage and greenhouse below which is private.

Other things to note
We provide one parking space for guests. Additional cars need to be parked on the street. The driveway is used by others, please be thoughtful about how you park.

We budget 3 hours to clean between guests. We appreciate what you do to tidy up so we can get things ready for the people after you.

My husband, Nils Peterson, and I have lived in Moscow since 1992 and we built the Peterson Barn in 1997, beginning with cutting and milling the trees. Nils is now the chief guesthouse operator (maid) and is building a commercial kitchen in the garden, and I work for Disability Action Center. When those things aren't keeping us busy, we are working with a local charter school or trying to keep up with the berries and cherries and tomatoes and apples and pears and plums and garlic (and weeds or snow).
