I look forward to seeing some of you next summer. The Tent and Breakfast really did turn out cute. We just received our 3rd write-up. We are in the September 2007 issue of Idaho Magazine.

Our first year has been amazing. We started with 7 guests in May and by August we had over 80 people stay with us that month. People really have a desire to reconnect with nature. I was planning to take down two of our tent by October 1st, but we are still taking reservations. Guess I better get busy and cut some more firewood to keep everyone cozy.

Oh, how charming! We are driving to havre, Mt next summer for a family reunion. I'll show my husband this idea for our trip :)

That is so gorgeous! I've bookmarked it for next year. We're sitting at 62 degrees here in southern Idaho, so camping has become an unappealing option until next summer...

We have had a wonderful first year. So many interesting folks stayed with us--returned peace corp volunteers, students getting degrees in sustainable living, world travelers and just plain good-ole people who want a taste of the country. We also got our first offical write up in Idaho Farm Bureau Quarterly. If your interested, go to
our article starts on page 32.

Take care and look us up if your coming to North Idaho.

Oh what a lovely place.

My son and his family lived in Boise for sometime. I thought Boise was wonderful. The rest of Idaho, has got to be even better.

I am not a camper, but I would certainly consider camping at your place.

Thank you

We just got back from our little summer holiday at the Huckleberry tent and brekkie. It was wonderful! It really is a quiet, peaceful, old-fashioned retreat into the wilderness. Well worth the 9.5 (scenic!) hour drive to get there. Not only was the tent gorgeous, but the camp kitchen was to die for - Christine had thought of every little detail, right down to an antique bread tin to store all the s'more goodies! I just put on my apron and felt right at home. :-)
A great big thank you to Christine and Tim.
Farmgirls, if you are ever traveling near N.Idaho you must stop by and stay awhile, just be warned, it's so lovely - you may not want to go back home! (We sure didn't!)

Thanks for all the beautiful comments. I am really excited about this venture. I love homesteading and old-fashioned living. Sharing this with others is the most ideal job I could think of. Special thanks to the people at Mary Janes Farm who answered my questions and gave me encouragement. They truly live what they preach about helping others.

Oh, Christine! It's just lovely. I'm sure it will be a success - I really can't think of a more fun place to stay in the area. The tents and accomodations are beautiful - congratulations on a dream come true!!!

XOXO, Libbie

Congratulations, Christine! I know youíve been talking about doing a B&B since you started chatting on the forum. MaryJane said that you were here for Farm Fair and talked to her about starting a tent B&B like ours. Iím glad she could encourage and help you get started. Starting your own business is such an exciting adventure!!! If I get any overflow, Iíll send Ďem your way. Agritourism ROCKS!! Good luck!!!

How lovely, Christine! This is my favorite part: "Serenity abounds with no electricity, video games, tv, internet, or other modern distractions." That sounds just about perfect. You've made a wonderful hideaway. Next time I'm in Idaho...
