I really enjoyed my stay here. The Windmill Cottage has just about everything you need for a comfortable and pleasant stay. Great location (and Spokane is a great town). Patricia is very friendly and helpful, as are the neighbors. Everything worked well, although Wifi was slow and dropped out a fair bit. Overall, great experience.

This was my second time staying at the Windmill and I enjoyed this 4 week stay as much as the first. The Windmill is in a great location, on the river, near downtown. The place is spacious and well-appointed. There is a shared garden that offered tomatoes and squash this summer. The laundry room, extra basement storage, and off-street parking are conveniences that made the stay more comfortable. Patricia is very hospitable and attentive to needs and concerns.

Our stay was incredibly comfortable at the Windmill. Everything was very well thought out; everything we needed was provided: from the fully stocked kitchen and bathroom, to the air conditioning (clutch in the 100+ F heat!), and pleasant decor. A laundry room is conveniently located right next to the Windmill and offers bike storage. The Windmill is located in the historic Browne's Addition, which is the "hip and upcoming" neighborhood of town. Very walkable to downtown as well the riverfront, Museum of Arts and Culture, Coeur d'Alene park (parks in Spokane are impressive!), and great coffee shops, restaurants and bars. I spent the summer commuting by bike or walking downtown to take the bus. The Browne's Addition was very accessible for biking, public transit and airport access. It was so effortless staying at the Windmill for two months. Patricia and Mike were incredibly responsive to questions via text or email. We appreciated their warm hospitality. We would definitely enjoy visiting again!

They were awesome, friendly and there if you needed anything. The neighborhood was good for walking my dogs. Close to the hospital i was working at.

I could not have asked for a better experience! I had just moved to Spokane from Pennsylvania, and Patricia and Mike helped make my move effortless. I stayed in the Windmill Cottage for 3 months while I was working at a local hospital. The location of the apartment was perfect. Easy walk/bike to downtown, not to mention the beautiful historic neighborhood it's in. The apartment was clean and beautifully decorated. Everything I needed was already at hand. If I could pick that apartment up and move it with me everywhere I travel, I would!

Stayed here for two nights for a business/personal development conference. Patricia took the time out of her busy schedule to answer multiple questions from my end, chat in person and to make sure everything was right. Location-wise it really suited my needs as I needed a place close to downtown Spokane. I was within walking distance to pretty much everything I needed. Small touches - WIFI password was provided without asking and worked great. The house was well-heated and the bed very comfortable. They even had ergonomic pillows for the neck which was a pleasant surprise. All-in-all, great value because of the location, the fact that you get the whole house, the hostess, and the little attentions to detail. If you are planning to stay in Spokane, definitely check out Patricia and Mike!

This place is WONDERFUL! We are convinced we stumbled on the best place in Spokane. The windmill is very accessible from the interstate (and easy spot from the street!). Inside everything is very clean and appears to be recently renovated. It's smartly decorated and furnished with a great little kitchen, a cozy living space, a desk for any computing you'll do, and a great big bed with the comfiest sheets you'll find. There is also an awesome little gas fireplace that radiates the perfect amount of heat. The location is great, a brief walk into downtown Spokane with many little coffee shops and pubs along the way. Patricia gave us a couple recommendations to start with which were very helpful due to our late arrival. We did not know how long we'd be in Spokane, but this place easily pushed us over the edge and compelled us to book another night. Having stayed with amazing airbnb places quite literally all over the world, I'd rank this one very near the top. If you're in Spokane, don't miss it!!! Don't miss: Baby bar (shares a spot with a great burrito place) Steam Plant Grill (a steam plant converted into a very cool space) Canada Island (perfect way to spend a sunny day) Jenny's Diner/Frank's Diner (great nearby breakfast/brunch spots)

Patricia & Mike User Profile

Mike and I own this wonderful little compound comprised of 6 units. 4 air BnB and 2 full time tenants. Each cottage is situated in a horseshoe with it's own entrance, offering all the amenities of a home. As you enter a private courtyard you will find a shared patio with slate pavers, raised garden beds, patio tables and a gas BBQ. There is a community laundry room with 2 coin op washers and 2 dryers, an ironing board, vacuum, brooms etc all to make you comfortable during your stay. We are hands on owners who care about your accommodations and are always looking for ways to improve our community. I am a realtor/boutique owner and Mike owns a race car business out of Portland. We travel a lot and enjoy listening to other travelers and their stories. If you like being close to the city, close to the river, close to restaurants shopping and more.....this is the place. Leave your car, walk, ride a bike and enjoy Spokane. We would love to have you!
