Spokane's South Perry District on the South Hill is emerging as the city's coolest, hippest, most happenin' neighborhood. Why? Because it is enticingly close to downtown but has its own vibe, with great restaurants, pubs and street activities.
Our house, lovingly dubbed 'Wishbone', is a 1948 home that we have restored and furnished with an unflinching eye to detail and comfort. It has a full bath on the main floor with a deep soaking tub/shower combo and two comfy bedrooms, one with a queen and the other with a full bed. Top-notch linens, mattresses and amenities. Ample built-in custom closets for your clothing and necessities.
The kitchen rocks it with a bright, airy eating nook with a huge window and windowed door leading to the patio. Fully stocked with excellent cookware and tableware. We are cooks and food lovers and know how to outfit a kitchen! Vintage stove works like a charm.
Gleaming hardwood floors throughout, and huge floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room. Wood-burning fireplace, dining area, amazing private patio with view out over the treetops.
Down the stairs on the lower level is another large room with double bed and fireplace which serves as an additional bedroom. It is on the rustic side with exposed rafters and beams. There is also a half bath and a washer and dryer there for your use.
Our passion is restoring wonderful historic South Hill homes, and in turn, offering people great places and communities in which they can thrive. We have been restoring and managing top notch living spaces in choice neighborhoods for more than a decade.
We live on the South Hill in a nearby neighborhood, so are readily available for our guests should you have any needs or concerns at any time.
Tim is a master carpenter and contractor and general all-around good guy who can fix just about anything. Rebecca is the mistress of Rookery Enterprises, and will help with any needs, wants and questions related to the community, resources and creature comforts.
We have four sons, all of whom have launched, three dogs, a parrot and chickens who will provide you with fresh eggs if they are in a laying mood when you are visiting.
Rebecca Mack purchased this house in 2012
This home is ideally suited for guests because it has a great feel and it's in a great neighborhood! The home is on a cul-de-sac perched on a sort of bluff, so the big bank of windows provides a cool view of the Spokane Valley. There's a spacious private deck right outside the living room and kitchen which brings the outdoor feel of the big pines and sky right into the living space.
This home, we call 'Wishbone', is the perfect size, all on one level, with this wonderful open floor plan yet cozy at the same time. We restored and furnished it to our personal standards of quality and taste. We love this home and this neighborhood!
You are a short walk to the vibrant South Perry District - there is a cool foot path from where 14th dead-ends, right down to South Perry!
We stayed at Wishbone for three nights while visiting our daughter at Gonzaga. This is a great home in a funky neighborhood. Close in, yet on a very quiet street. We very much appreciated how clean, nicely furnished and well-equipped it was. Everything you need, plus a whole lot more. The owners have decorated the home with historical pictures and provided books and brochures, perfect for out-of-towners who want to explore Spokane. We would definitely stay here again.
I am a professor of chemistry and was in town with my research students for a conference at Eastern Washington University. My students and I were initially interested in using a VRBO property because we believe it to be a more "green" solution to traveling than compared to staying in a hotel. When we arrived we found our accommodations where so much more than that, it was a full luxurious experience! The house had plenty of room for all of us to have privacy, but the common space was also plentiful as well. We were able to make breakfast and fresh coffee each morning with ease and we all got great rest each night as the beds were all very comfortable. The back porch has a fantastic view of Spokane and watching the sunset from there was glorious. Also, we were able to walk right down the street and found plenty of bars/restaurants, which were excellent. I would love to come back to Wishbone sometime when I am not there with my students!!
My husband and daughter and I stayed for two nights over Valentine's day weekend. We had decided on the spur of the moment to make the trip to Spokane, and were very happy to be able to book this house at short notice. We were even happier when we arrived! The house is absolutely charming, and has been lovingly decorated. Rebecca Mack has thought of everything to make her house welcoming. There were fresh flowers on the table, fruit , juice, english muffins, and yogurt in the refrigerator, and the cupboards are stocked with just about everything you could possibly need. There was even a new toothbrush and tooth paste in the bathroom. The house was spotlessly clean, the beds were comfortable, the linens were luscious, and the quiet location made for a very restful retreat. The bookshelves were filled with interesting books, games, and there was ample information about things to do and places to eat in Spokane. I would highly recommend this charming house and hope to get to stay here again in the future. Just a wonderful weekend in every way!
My husband and I stayed here for two nights with our three year old daughter and my mother-in-law. The house is in a fantastic location and is well-cared for and impeccably clean. The basement bedroom is aptly described as being for the more adventurous, but again was very clean and the bed was very comfotable. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need and the bathroom had great water pressure. The owner was very helpful and kind and very quick to answer any questions. Will definitely stay here again!
The catchy title of the ad got my attention and the place fit our needs. We were 3 tennis players coming for a weekend of match play. The listing was accurate, the photos were accurate as well. The house was clean, well maintained, the owner was great and lives just a short distance away. I'd certainly stay here again next year and would recommend it to friends!
This house suited our needs for a long weekend. The kitchen was pretty well stocked (no dishwasher), but we found everything else we needed for breakfasts. The two bedrooms on the main level were sufficient, however, the bedroom in the basement, which we did have to use, needs to be refurbished. It is a rather bleak room to sleep in. I understand the house is continually being worked on, so I would hope the owners get to this very soon for the convenience of the renters. There was also a very large patio/deck with a gas grill which we enjoyed using for our barbecue.
Honestly, our town and its environs have so much to offer, and so many amenities, it's tough to list them all!
Spokane is smack dab in the middle of some of the best outdoor recreation opportunities in the Pacific northwest. It is also a regional medical and convention center, drawing visitors from all over the world.
We are outdoor enthusiasts, and are happy to direct our guests to great hiking, biking, skiing (all kinds), and water sweet spots within easy striking distance from 'Wishbone'.
We are also food lovers, so can point you to what we believe are the finest markets and eating spots in town. The South Perry District has great restaurants, taverns, a renown Farmer's Market and a cool bike shop, among many of its charms.
