The Historic Northern Hotel is the oldest hostelry in northern Idaho. Located on Priest Lake in Coolin, Idaho, the two-story log hotel was built in 1900 by Walt Williams, an employee of the Great Northern Railroad. One of a number of lodges created to attract more passengers to the rail line, the Northern Hotel is the only one that remains from the early days of Idaho statehood when mining, timber, and tourism businesses were beginning to develop around Priest Lake.
房源空間 This room features plush forest green carpet and, as with the other Old Northern Inn suites and rooms, rich cedar paneling.
A handcrafted quilt wall hanging distinguishes this room. The antique floor lamps located at the head of the bed is of particular interest. These lighting fixtures, the other antique furnishings and the lace curtains reflect the early days of the 20th century.
As the sun sets behind Outlet Mountain and the cool stillness of the evening envelops the Inn, you may want to spend a few moments outside on the deck gazing towards the heavens.
You will likely become spellbound by the magnificence of the pure black night sky that is characteristic of the Priest Lake area. Stars, constellations and galaxies sparkle with a brilliance seldom seen elsewhere—and the aurora borealis occasionally performs its magical light show. It is a fitting end to a relaxing day in Mother Nature's wonderland.
This room, as all rooms at the Historic Northern Hotel, feature a private bathroom.
