Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Mead - Aviator Dreams

2400 Square Foot House, With 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths And Sleeps 10 Comfortably

This lovely Northside home sits on a small quiet airport with gorgeous views of Mt. Spokane. Just minutes from downtown Spokane, just off Hwy 2 and the North Division Y.

Watch the local planes take off and land from the front yard swing and then end your day watching the sunset on the large back patio while BBQing.

The Large master suite has a queen bed and walk in closet with new carpet. The master bathroom has new flooring, a garden tub, walk in shower and double vanity. Second bedroom has a queen bed and closet. Second bathroom is located just off the second bedroom and has a shower/tub and a nice large single vanity. The third bedroom is located downstairs and has a queen bed with two sets of dressers. A twin bed can be found in a cubby in the laudryroom, perfect for a young child. The beds are brand new, firm and high quality. The linens are also new.

This property is close to civilization but feels remote. During your visit you will see wildlife like deer, quail and wild turkeys. Aviator Dreams is a open spaceous floor plan much like the property it sits on.

What ever your needs may be: Bloomsday, College Graduations, Hoopfest, Skiing, Shopping or just a little getaway; this is the place for you.

Cool location, dated home, limited sleeping, large living area.

  • 3 of 5

While the living area of this home was sufficient to host our family throughout the week as people came and went for our son's wedding, I would not book this home again, though my wife says she would. It is very dated (though well maintained and very clean), from the lighting to the toilets to the kitchen appliances to the central HVAC. In fact, the HVAC is so bad at cooling the house that the owners added a stand alone unit to the living area, which required my attention at least six times to drain the water from the evaporation system, which I was told to do by the owner. We were here in the heat of summer (July 19-25). Without a/c this house would have been miserably hot, as it was on several occasions when we returned to find the stand alone unit turned off due to needing draining (the unit automatically turns off when the water hits a certain fill level, which is a mystery).

My wife also felt that the layout of the home was awkward. There are only two bathrooms, but both are accessed through a bedroom (the master and the bedroom off the kitchen). So, the bedroom downstairs (my sons called it the dungeon) is isolated with the laundry room, which contains the one twin bed that I cannot imagine having anyone sleep in and storage for toys and games.

Realistically, this home is good for six people (though two more could sleep in the spacious living area) mostly due to the limited bathrooms. As for hosting a party, there is plenty of space in the living area, just make sure you drain the stand alone a/c unit ahead of time so that it doesn't turn off in the middle of the festivities.

As for location, my little nephew loved being able to walk down and look at the small planes along the air field. I also appreciate the family history associated with this property and the air field.

If I had it to do over again, I would probably rent one of the newer homes down by the Spokane River Gorge, even though I picked this house to be closer to the wedding venue. Though, as I've already said, my wife would stay here again.

Owner's Response: The house was built in 1986 and has been well maintained over the years, so things like lighting, and a kitchen remodel have not been done. The pictures show this. That being said, updates like new furniture have been done. Not to mention replacing the mauve carpet that was in the master bedroom and bathroom. ;) Many homes in Spokane do not have central air and neither does this house, in the amenities there is no mention of AC as I don't want to over sell. When groups larger than 4 book the house I always call the potential renter and explain the layout of the house and the bathroom set up. Your reservation stated that there would be only 2 guest.

Beautiful Clean Comfortable Home

My family and I had a wonderful time at Aviator Dreams. Six of us slept very comfortably. I highly recommend this house. Thank you so much to the owners.

Wonderful location for a family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of two houses that I rented for a family reunion/birthday party, and it worked out very well! This house was the location of the main "party" (about 30 people) because of the spacious layout, as well as lodging for 2 nights for several relatives. Although I did not stay at the house, I spent a good deal of time there and it was very nice. The only thing the relatives pointed out was that both bathrooms are accessed via a bedroom - so middle-of-the-night bathroom visits by people not occupying one of those bedrooms is a bit awkward. But since everybody in our case was related (brothers and their wives, mostly), it was mostly a point of humor for them. Everybody had a great time, enjoyed the peaceful location, and the well-appointed home!

W-O-W! What a home & what a location! Prior to our arrival April made sure we were all good & checked to make sure we were all set. Stayed their back to back wknds & she was extremely flexible & gracious enough to offer us to leave some things if we wanted. House was very "spacious" & the setting was like it was straight outta a movie! :-) lol.....Mahalos for & to April for allowing our group to stay & experience Spokane in a little different light & look fwd to making this a permanent stop for our group every year. A definite spot to stay if you are planning to stay in or near the area. You will not be disappointed, I guarantee it! Thx again & Alohas!!! ;-)

From the family that was there --fantastic!

  • 4 of 5

We have spent many a year together at accommodations like this, but yours was exceptional. Clean, supplied, functional and the access and scenery was great. It was hard to believe we had the woodsy setting, snow and turkeys included, so close to shopping and grocery, yet at the same time separated from the world. The family loved the living room and seating for TV and movies and it worked great for the "Coug Game!"

The family wants to do this again here.

The difficulties were easily overcome (of which we knew about at rental time) with the bathroom access in the second bedroom. We as a family had no difficulties with the arrangement. If there was a difficulty it was lighting the fire place but with perseverance we were able to find the "red switch."

Thank you for sharing this facility with us.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I flew in to Spokane for a week vacation with a friend and chose to stay at Aviator Dreams. It was a great decision. The house was well furnished, clean and comfortable. It was in a nice location with plenty of wildlife around to enjoy. The one time I needed some assistance with an issue, I called the owner and within five minutes, had an answer and help.

Wonderful experiences in the house and will definitely come back for more fun!
