Log B&Bs offer more than just food and lodging.

Log B&Bs offer more than just food and lodging

A bed and breakfast used to be simply a place for a weary traveler to rest his head for an evening and wake up to a hot meal in the morning. Not any longer. Today's B&Bs have become sanctuaries providing the ultimate in luxury and log homes are a growing part of that luxury. Below, we spotlight two distinctive inns and offer our annual log lodging directory. We've compiled a list of 123 log home bed and breakfast retreats. Each one has something unique to offer, but they do have one thing in common—they are all rooted in the log home living tradition. The Grizzly Den Bed and Breakfast Stunning and luxurious accommodations are the hallmark of the Grizzly Den, located in the Okanagan region of British Columbia, Canada. Built entirely of Douglas fir timbers by Peco Log Homes, the bed and breakfast is nestled among tall pines on 10 acres of private land. From your room, you can look out over the nearby town of Vernon and the crystal clear Kalamalka Lake. The Grizzly Den offers five unique guestrooms to choose from—each one featuring its own bath with whirlpool tub, a king- or queen-size bed (except for the Kodiak room, which boasts custom twin bunkbeds) and satellite television. All guests have access to the eight-person outdoor hot tub. Each morning a delectable homemade English breakfast is prepared for rested guests before they embark on a day of activity. Local attractions include world-class cross-country and downhill skiing, snowmobiling, horseback riding, mountain biking, swimming, water skiing, fishing, hiking and, of course, fine dining. Owners Pat and B.J. Illingby are eager to welcome you to their exquisite corner of British Columbia.  
   

If You Go

Vernon, British Columbia, is located just north of the U.S. border near Washington state. In addition to outdoor activities, the area boasts a performing arts center and multiplex, a space and science center, historical tours, a water park and numerous festivals throughout the year. Rates range between $85-$290 per night.

The Blue Heron Inn   Conveniently located near the gateway to Yellowstone National Park in southeastern Idaho, the impressive Blue Heron Inn overlooks the scenic south fork of the Snake River, a world-famous fly-fishing mecca. Built in 2000, the B&B is the realization of a 10-year dream of innkeepers Claudia and Dave Klingler. The half-log exterior, produced by Snake River Log Homes, is offset by drywall inside, but log detailing is everywhere you look—from the log loft and posts in the great room, to the rustic log bed in the South Fork guest quarters. Amenities include a magnificent river view, fireplace, jetted tub, private balconies and in-room massages (with prior arrangements). The entire first floor is wheelchair accessible. Every morning, guests enjoy a full Western-style breakfast including such entrees as sourdough pancakes, omelets and quiches. Continental breakfast is available for those who want to get an early start. Evening provides an opportunity for guests to socialize in the great room, where appetizers and complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks are served. The library nook provides a refuge for the guest who just wants to escape into the pages of a good book. For those looking for a more active vacation, the surrounding area offers everything from boating to rock climbing to whitewater rafting. In addition to Yellowstone, Grand Teton and Craters of the Moon National Parks and Harriman State Park are all within a short drive. So prepare yourself to be as relaxed or entertained as you desire; you may never want to leave the Blue Heron.
