Description

Savor a unique, upscale camping getaway with everything you need to relax & enjoy the beauty of our north Idaho wilderness, 30 miles from scenic Sandpoint, Idaho. Our Mountain View campsite features a comfortably furnished tent cabin & camp kitchen.

We feature three special campsites— Nona’s, The Cedars, and Mountain View. This listing is for our Mountain View Tent Site.

When you stay at Huckleberry Tent and Breakfast, you’ll enjoy a secluded home in the woods with everything you need to make your stay unforgettable. In addition to our snug and comfy canvas walled tent cabins, each camping site includes …

• Your own screened camp kitchen with antique functional hand pump for water, a propane stove, ice chest (bring ice) and lots of cookware.
• An airy, cozy outhouse complete with candles and plenty of reading material. It’s all natural, completely sanitary, and smells as fresh and clean as all outdoors.
• Outdoor shower (yes, you can heat the water) with towels and amenities.
• Your own thoughtfully-furnished campsite with fire pit, camp furniture, citronella torches and candles to keep the bugs at bay, and more. If you call ahead, we’ll even light the fire for you.
•Bringing an extra guest? No problem. In addition to the queen size bed in the main tent, there is a side tent with 2 cots, foam mattresses, pillows, comforters, and sheets. The 2 cots can also be moved into the main tent if you desire. Just let us know.

"Doubly happy, however, is the man to whom lofty mountain tops are within reach." --John Muir

The view from Mountain View tent site is of the spectacular Scotchman Peak, the highest point in Bonner County, Idaho at 7009 feet. There's nothing better after a day's hike than to come home to dinner around the campfire and a comfy feather bed. For those of you who love adventure (or just a great view), this is the site for you.

Experience a private camping experience in the North Idaho wilderness—like a bed and breakfast inside a cozy tent. Our canvas-walled tent cabins feature
• A wood-burning stove complete with wood and kindling in cool weather
• Screened walls for cross-breezes in warm weather
• Wide plank wood floors
• Queen-size bed with patchwork quilts.

When you stay with us, you’ll enjoy a hot homemade breakfast each morning at the homestead. You’ll also get to see real live homesteaders in our native habitat.

We built our homestead from scratch beginning in 1992. Beginning with the garage that originally served as our home, you’ll enjoy seeing the house we later built, as well as our garden and the animals that provide for our needs (and yours).

Our homestead is powered by the sun—and by a generator when the sun doesn’t shine. We grow most of our food and either make or barter for many of our implements, and generally make do on a lot less money than most people consider necessary. But we’re happy, and we’ll bet that staying with us, you will be too.

If you wish, we’ll provide advice on gardening, homesteading, animal raising, off-grid living, and simple living in general. In season, pick some of your lunch or dinner out of the garden. You’ll be surprised at how much better the real stuff tastes

Folks are attracted to north Idaho’s rich natural beauty, and we think that around here we have more than our fair share of it. Local attractions include ...
• Wildlife, including deer, elk, moose, eagles, owls, and numerous smaller birds, fish, and critters.
• Scotchman Peak (visible from Mountain View campsite), the highest peak in Bonner County. This is a strenuous climb but definitely worth it!
• Clark Fork River delta and Johnson Creek inlet, with dozens of islands and quiet water channels, throngs of birds and an occasional moose, all nestled between the towering Bitterroot mountains on the south and Cabinet mountains on the north.
• Lake Pend Oreille, Idaho’s largest and deepest lake, just 20 minutes down the road.
• Ross Creek Cedars, up the road about 30 minutes. Some of the largest trees in Montana live here, in a quiet dell that could be a fantasy movie set.
• Sandpoint, the county seat and nearest big town, just 45 minutes away. Enjoy downtown shopping, restaurants, watersports, City Beach, and much more.
• We’re just 75 minutes from Silverwood, the Northwest’s largest theme park, and an easy half day’s drive from Glacier National Park.

Leave all your modern worries behind as you hike down the well maintained trails. Explore our water, hills, and woods. Let nature's song take you back to a simpler time. Visit Huckleberry Tent and Breakfast to reconnect with land, life, and spirit.

Serenity abounds with no electricity, video games, TV, Internet, or other modern distractions.


House Rules
No parties or events

To keep everyone's experience peaceful and relaxing, we reserve the right to limit the number of people per site.

Pets (1 or 2) are more than welcomed -- no extra charge! We do ask that you leave them at your campsite when you come over to the homestead for breakfast.

Bringing the kids? Great! Only $20 per child - per night. We supply cot, bedding and breakfast. Got teenagers? We can even set up a separate side tent! Have two or more children? Contact us and we'll cut you a special deal. We love families!

Every morning we serve up a full farm-style breakfast featuring our chickens' fresh eggs, pancakes or french toast, sausage or ham, homemade jams, real maple syrup, berries from our garden (in season) and our own apple cider. Let us know in advance if you have any food allergies, dietary restrictions or vegetarian and we'll make sure you have something delicious to eat.

You'll need to bring ice for your cooler and your main food items for lunch and dinner. S'mores, firewood, pantry basics including spices, sugar, honey, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate are stocked at your camp kitchen. We'll even supply locally made salad dressing to go along with the salad fixings you harvested from our garden.

Travel safe and we look forward to sharing our mountain wilderness with you.

Maybe I had watched too many episodes of “Little House on the Prairie” as a child but what I love to do more than anything is homesteading. I love gardening, raising animals, quilting, gathering firewood, baking bread in a wood cook stove and living close to the land. From this foundation, the idea of Huckleberry Tent and Breakfast was born.

I set out to create a unique North Idaho bed and breakfast that I, personally, would love to stay at. I wanted an old-fashioned camping experience but with all the comforts of a traditional bed and breakfast. A place where people could have a good night’s sleep but also enjoy a campfire, pump water by hand, view the stars and just get back to the simple way of life.

My dream is to offer an alternative to the hectic, fast-paced modern world. My hope is to create a place where people can come to reconnect with life, land, and spirit.
