About the Inn


Gardenview Estate Bed & Breakfast

History & Property

This 148 year old home is nestled in the Selkirk Mountains less than 2 hours north of Spokane. Opened as a mission in 1873, its 43 acres were home to the Sisters of Providence and later to a convent for Dominican nuns who ran a school on site. The main house was once the Mother Superior’s quarters and office. It also contained a chapel, now the two-story-high living room that welcomes guests upon entry. 


Reminders of the property’s history abound, including religious statues, a cross on the gymnasium and “Crown of Thorn” trees planted by the nuns. The property features a gazebo built in the 1930s & original fire hydrants.

The large, square, wood-frame house, painted white and surrounded by white railed fences is as pristine as the grounds. It’s been completely modernized, but still has the second-story porch where the Mother Superior would greet visitors. Inside, it’s warm and refreshingly uncluttered.
