Bed & Breakfast

Charming, quaint, romantic. These are a few words that characterize Spokane’s bed and breakfast inns. The best universal descriptors? Warm and welcoming. When never-ending hotel hallways and run-of-the-mill guest rooms simply won’t suffice, bed and breakfasts are a great choice.

History buffs and art lovers delight in the old-world charm of bed and breakfast inns that double as historic landmarks. From their classic architecture to authentic period furnishings, these turn of the century homes showcase awe-inspiring craftsmanship. Perhaps you’ll choose the 1899 House Bed & Breakfast, a stunning Queen Anne-style home that has been painstakingly restored to its former glory. Wake up to the delicious smells of a made-from-scratch breakfast wafting from the kitchen. You’re happy to see the gracious hosts have taken note of your traveling companion’s gluten allergy—tasty choices abound for both of you. Spokane’s downtown is within walking distance for a day of exploring.

Another historic B&B is the Marianna Stoltz House Bed and Breakfast, located near Gonzaga University, which was built in 1908 and has over 25 years in hospitality. The Marianna Stolz is a place where couples can get away to early 20th century domestic bliss--with a master crafted interior with fir and maple, and furnished with period fitting furniture in the parlor and dining rooms.  The Intermountain Northwest, especially in the summer, is prime for sitting outdoors. So enjoy tea or coffee and the house specialty peach melba parfait on the wrap around veranda. 

Not all B&Bs have 100+ years under their belt, but that doesn’t take away from their magic. Consider a stay a little off the beaten path at a place like River House Bed & Breakfast, where the peaceful sounds of the Spokane River act as your alarm clock. Before heading out for a day of hiking and kayaking, a sample of the innkeeper’s specialty (huckleberry pancakes) turns into your new obsession. The family of otters spotted during your easy paddle downriver is a highlight that comes up in your daily recap—one that’s best done while sipping a hot cup of tea next to your loved one and a crackling fire.

Whether you’re planning a celebratory escape or a romantic getaway, bed and breakfast inns offer some of the most unique and hospitable accommodations available in the Spokane area.
