GREAT PLACE to stay after a full day at Silverwood, Glacier Park or a long day of driving. At top of driveway, turn right thru the red reflectors (onto the grass), pull up to the patio and enter thru French Doors. Very comfy King bed, huge luxurious bath w/his /her sinks, jacuzzi tub, walk in shower & heated floors; located on 20 acres; 40 min. to Schweitzer, 1/2 hr. to Sandpoint, snowmobiling, hiking near Kootenai Falls & family activities. Keurig coffee & well stocked mini kitchen.
This 20 acre parcel is VERY unique with huge house sized boulders. Walking distance to 3 grocery stores. Deer (8-12) walk out of the "retired" tree farm and graze in the front yard; flocks of wild turkeys (usually 13-14) and the occasional elk will stroll thru. Bedroom and bath are very spacious; our recent guest referred the bathroom as "epic"!! Property is very quiet; no close neighbors. We have an information sheet in room that recommends places to eat.
The private master suite is locked off to the rest of the home. Arrangements will be made to have the key available and you will have total independence as far as coming and going thru a private exterior entrance. Should you desire to have access to the laundry or visit the main living/dining/kitchen while the hosts are at home, just let us know. Our cell numbers are on information sheet so you can text us with questions.
Interaction with guests
Occasionally, the hosts are traveling but there is a locked key box outside the French Door entrance. We also have a person who can greet you when you arrive if you prefer and their phone number would be made available if for some reason we can't be there; however, we are always just a phone call/text away.
Other things to note
It is not possible to access the rest of the house from the Master Bedroom Suite. The door separating the master from the rest of the house is kept locked. The master bedroom suite sorta stands alone and you enter and leave from the private French doors. If you would like the opportunity to use the laundry facilities or visit the kitchen/living room when the hosts are home, just text us and we would be happy to have you come inside!!
- There is some flexibility about pets and an additional damage deposit would be required.
_ After your stay, please remove sheets and used towels and put them in a laundry basket or the Jacuzzi tub and set out dishes used.

Eldon is an engineer and just finished a two year contract in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. He was a former diary farmer from Minnesota and is a multi-talented man with an engineer's mind!
Margene loves to travel. Her travels have included Budapest, Amsterdam, Dubai, Slovakia, all over Europe, as well as Hong Kong, China, Korea, Machu Pichu, Norway to name a few. Eldon took his first international trip with Margene to Guatemala last year with a Rotary Group.
Margene has stayed in Airbnb in Amsterdam, Budapest, Amman Jordan, Arizona, Idaho, Nashville, California and has never had a negative experience. She loves meeting people and making new friends!! Her grandfather left Norway in 1905 and immigrated to the USA, coming straight to Poulsbo so her family has a long history here ... it is known as Little Norway.
Eldon Cegelske and Margene Smaaladen are co-owners in this fabulous home in Bonners Ferry on 20 acres. The deer come out of the woods as if to greet you when you arrive. Airbnb is one of the best ideas that has ever come about!!
Margene's life motto: Everything happens for a reason.
