A private room and shared bath in our beautiful historic Victorian built in 1891. The house is located in Spokane's historic Browne's Addition neighborhood which was voted one of the 10 greatest neighborhoods in America in 2009. We have great views of Coeur D'Alene Park and the historic Patrick Clark mansion. A short two block walk will take you to some of the best restaurants and pubs in Spokane. We are one block from the bus line that takes runs between downtown and the airport.
A gorgeous private room on the second floor of our Victorian home. Soft green and silver peacock wallpaper, white trim, and dark wood floors. Firm queen size bed, white cotton linens, in-room sink and two mirrors, side table and chairs. The room is not large but pleasant. Our guests are encouraged to enjoy the main floor of our home as well. The bathroom is directly across the hall from the room with large claw foot tub with shower package. Towels, soap and shampoo provided. This bathroom is shared with "The Museum Room" also listed on Airbnb on the same floor. Of course, if the other room is empty the bathroom is private for your use. If both rooms are rented and there happens to be a need, there is another full bathroom on the main floor available for use.
Guests have access to our living room on the main floor with the gas fireplace and period furniture. In fair weather, the wrap around porch offers a great place to sip coffee or read. Tables and chairs are available. In the summertime, the gardens bloom with roses of all colors. Our guests are welcome to enjoy all aspects of the yard.
Our guests are welcome to socialize as much or as little as they wish. I will be available for questions/needs throughout the stay and would love to chat over cups of tea or coffee.
THE FOTHERINGHAM HOUSE IS A HOME:
We are inviting guests into our home and living areas. We ask that our guests respect this invitation and treat the premises and furnishings accordingly.
NO THIRD PARTY BOOKING:
We cannot accept bookings made on behalf of another party regardless of family relation or circumstances for security and liability purposes. The person booking must be one of the parties staying with us.
GUESTS MUST HAVE VERIFIED ID:
All guests booking with us must have verified their identity with Airbnb.
There is no daily housekeeping service (making bed/room tidying) offered for short stays. Guests must do this for themselves. However for those staying a week or longer we will do a surface clean (dust/sink/trash/floor) every 3 days. Sheets will be changed once a week. New towels are available every day.
The house and rooms do not have AC. Opening the windows at night cools things off and fans are available.
The bus line only accepts exact change. For $1.50 paid when boarding the bus, you receive a 2 hour pass to ride anywhere on the system.
***Please air travelers!***
Realize there is no place to get change at the airport! The bus system does not take credit cards and they do not make change so you need to plan ahead.

Greetings! I am a Montana girl currently living an incredible childhood dream of renovating a historic Victorian home and sharing the fruit of my labors with guests. Together with the love of my life, Son, we have the pleasure of hosting fellow Airbnb travelers visiting the Spokane, Washington area at The Fotheringham House.
When I am not reupholstering a rescued piece of furniture, painting, building, sewing, gardening, or cleaning something, my interests include history, art, dance, and travel. A previous job in the airline industry allowed me the opportunity to see some of the world. My favorite place I've been so far is Heidelberg, Germany.
Airbnb asks me about a life motto. Live life in the now moment. The past is gone. The future is yet to come. Now is all you have for certain. Do not waste it.
