AB Blog - Clark HouseThe Clark House
If you want a true escape from the busy modern world, then The Clark House on Hayden Lake might be the place for you. The mansion was built in 1910 by F. Lewis Clark, who built the house right on the shores of Hayden Lake as a summer home where he invited the most prosperous of society to visit. The house has been carefully restored to its former glory and now is a bed and breakfast. You won't find high tech modern conveniences here, but you will find charm galore!

Cost per night: $100-$200 average
Driving distance: 45 minutes from Spokane (7 miles from Coeur d' Alene)
