Worth planning a stop-over. In addition to the interesting character of the building and the absolutely fantastic breakfast, Ruth provides a warm hospitality - chatting on the patio with guests as we watch the dozens of hummingbirds, discussing the schools history, advising on dinner options. It was my favorite night in a 10 day trip.

On our way to Banff my 2 sisters and I enjoyed this fabulous B&B! Ruth was very accommodating of our need to sleep 3 in a room. The relaxing ambiance was nice, the extra touches to have tea, cookies or a liqueur for evening was very nice. The breakfast was a class act with beautiful settings, excellent foods. Quiche, huckleberry...

We stayed at the Northside School on our journey from Banff to Spokane. Everything was very clean. Ruth, the owner, very friendly and a wonderful cook! The breakfast was delicious with many choices. She also has her homemade jellies, syrups, etc. for sale at a very low cost. Never heard a single train, which many people complained about in their...

This is a beautifully converted elementary school, lovingly done by Ruth, who attended school here, and her husband. Each room has its own unique decor. The entire B&B is comfortable and welcoming, as are the hosts. The pool is heated and the jacuzzi was perfectly located to watch the hummingbirds on the feeders. Breakfast was sumptuous and first-rate. Our only...

The owners, Ruth and Gene Perry, converted a historic school into a charming bed and breakfast with nine rooms. The schoolhouse sits on a hillside and guests can walk a few steps for a lovely view of the Kootenai River. The "monkey" bars and other playground equipment still visible on the property made me feel like a kid again. An...

Charming, Beautifully restored 1912 school house. All the rooms used to be classrooms, so they have giant, old-school windows. The wooden floors were refinished and schoolhouse antiques are placed throughout the building. We stayed in the very spacious Tuscany room. It was spotless and dust-free. Comfy bed. Beautiful view of the gardens. The breakfast was DELICIOUS - huckleberry stuffed French...

This is an old school, turned into a B&B. The owner actually attended and many of the old memories are used in decor. Lovely gardens, great breakfast and Bonner's Ferry has an interesting history and good restaurants

Have stayed in many B&B'S and have never found one that exceeded all of our expectations and wish list items like Northside School B&B. The ambiance of a renovated school house was comforting and the renovations were top notch. The room was very clean, the view was awesome and the hospitality was second to none. The owners had just returned...
