Your hosts

Welcome to Inn at the Lake

Designed for the PERFECT romantic couples getaway… *Anniversary, *Wedding Night / Honeymoon, Birthday celebration or just a weekend getaway. Located in Eastern Washington State close to Priest Lake, Pend Oreille Lake and half way between Spokane Washington and Sandpoint Idaho just of highway 2. This almost 8000 sq ft Mediterranean Style Villa is also located only 40 minutes from 3 different ski resorts – 49 degrees north, Mt. Spokane and Switzer. It sets at the entry from Spokane to the International Selkirk Loop, a road trip ranked as one of the top 10 scenic destinations in the Northern Rockies going into British Columbia Canada. North America’s only Multi-National scenic loop. The Villa sits 7 miles from Newport Washington on the crystal clear waters of Diamond Lake.

We also sit at the gateway to Yellowstone National Park, Glacier National Park and over the border into Canada we have Banff National Park. We have had many guests (both from the USA and international) stay here while traveling to and from these parks starting at Spokane international airport.

Some of our guests say that one day here is like a weekend at a spa. You will enjoy the large 2 person Jacuzzi tubs, Netflix, hulu, STARZ, Amazon Prime, and cable on the flat screen TV’s and the lake view from almost every window.



A little About Us

Hospitality has been a shared life-long passion for my husband Wayne and I.  Before settling in Eastern Washington, my husband Wayne owned and operated a restaurant in the Seattle area and takes his hobby of cooking very seriously.

As the the oldest of 9 children growing up on a farm in Chattaroy Wa, I discovered early on that cooking, baking and hospitality would be a life-long passion.  My fascination with food is quite evident by my large collection of cookbook treasures and stories from family and friends about my creative cuisines – ask me the funny story about my asian lemon chicken (I promise this will not be a menu item offered during your stay).  Breakfast has always been a favorite meal of mine.  I have chosen unique, homemade recipes to put a whole new spin on your breakfast favorites.  I want to tantalize your appetite with the aromas of freshly baked pastries and breads and leave your palette fully satisfied in both the sweet and savory flavors of breakfast.

When I’m not in the kitchen, I love caring for a home – creating a comforting, relaxing and peaceful atmosphere for you, my guest!  Luxury linens, fresh locally roasted fair-trade coffee, and sweets are just a few of the amenities offered to make your stay enjoyable.  Please let me know about any gluten, dairy or nut allergies so I can accommodate  you during your stay.
