About This Listing
Our beautiful mid-century home is spacious, private and comfy. It looks like a cabin in the pines from the dead-end street, but is well-appointed with everything you may need or want for your stay in the coolest neighborhood in our fair city.
Spokane's South Perry District is the happenist neighborhood in town! A Farmer's Market, brewery, cool little shops and the best pizza ever - South Perry Pizza - all within walking distance from this cool house.
The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful, and the home is larger than it looks from the street. It is perched above the Perry District with a terrific deck overlooking the valley.
We call our 1948 gem "Wishbone". Two bedrooms, full bath with tub, fabulous kitchen with breakfast nook and a great big living room with huge floor to ceiling windows overlooking the valley. Warm oak floors throughout and a cozy wood-burning fireplace. There is a large deck just off the living room where you can relax in privacy as you gaze over the ponderosa tree tops.
This house has a great feel - the best mid-century features carefully restored with expert attention to detail, from the period light fixtures to the vintage chrome-clad kitchen stove.
Wishbone is at the end of a sweet street that dead-ends into a walking path that leads you straight down to South Perry where there are oodles of neighborhood amenities.
The furnishings are top-notch, right down to the high-end bed linens, towels and fluffy pillows and comforters.
There are two bedrooms and a full bath with tub on the first floor, one with a queen and one with a double bed. On the lower level, which is for the more adventuresome, is a half bath, double bed and laundry.
There is a TV with cable and also high speed wireless internet at the house, but you can;t see it in the photos.
We are pet-friendly, and will happily welcome your well-behaved creature for a fee if we can all feel comfortable about arrangements . Please contact me if you would like to spend your time in Spokane with your pet.
Our guests have access to the entire house and grounds. Our home, "Wishbone" is for the exclusive use of our guests. There is no one else on the property.
Interaction with Guests
We like to greet our guests and let them into the house, but otherwise we will not be there. We live a couple miles away, so are available, but we allow our guests their privacy.
We love how peaceful and quiet it is on this particular street, which is a dead-end. It is perched in towering Ponderosa pines, overlooking the Spokane Perry District which has loads of great shops, eateries and pubs right within walking distance.
There is a bus to downtown Spokane which stops on Perry Street, just 2 blocks from the house.
House is strictly NO SMOKING. We are in a quiet residential neighborhood and expect our guests to be respectful of neighbors.
The house was a wonderful setting for our family vacation. Rebecca has provided all the amenities to create a home away from home for travelers. The setting in an older residential neighborhood with mature trees was quiet yet still conveniently located a short walk or drive away from parks, restaurants, etc. The house and private patio provided enough space for six of us to be comfortable and relaxed during our week-long stay. Rebecca welcomed us to the house with many helpful recommendations for places to go and see. She was flexible about the check in time. The house was clean and attractively furnished. We would stay there again.

Rebecca was a fantastic host. She met us at the house to give us a quick tour and provide great tips for nearby cafes, then she respected our privacy and we didn't hear from her again until checkout.
The house was perfect for our stay. It was clean, had everything we needed, had reliable wifi, and the private patio was the cherry on top. I highly recommend staying here if you're in Spokane.
Rebecca was an incredibly gracious host, she provided bagels, coffee, juices, butter, even coffee creamer. Plenty of blankets, towels and sheets. She was not put out at all that we had the heat turned up pretty high since we had three kids (one of whom was a last-minute extra guest) sleeping near the floor-to-ceiling windows. Beautiful view, great little house with neat details. We walked to South Perry on Rebecca's recommendation - cute little commercial district with neat shops and great coffee shop. Once we figured out the navigation, in and out of town was super easy.
What a beautiful house to stay in. Everything was available to use for the kitchen and bathroom. The house had a lot of charm as well as the neighborhood. It was an amazing location and Rebecca provided a list of great restaurants near by. She also accommodated our dog which was great. We would defiantly stay there again!
