All amenities of the inn are accessible to guests, as the host lives separately in a home on the same property. The Sunken Garden with its fish pond offers a respite for weary guess, as well as a comfortable place to relax and read.
Host/owner Jo Moore is readily accessible to answer questions about the area, take care of guests' needs, and personally cook and serve breakfast, as well as full dinners upon request. Drinks and snacks are offered on arrival of guests, and if dinner has been ordered, a social hour of appetizers and beer/wine service precedes the meal. Sometimes guests, who also enjoy cooking, even join Jo in the kitchen with a glass of wine while cooking together! Guests are always asked if they prefer dining alone, or wish to join other guests in a social atmosphere. Jo feels it is very important to see that guests feel as comfortable as if they were in their own home.
The High Country Inn is a "getaway" where there is no close traffic or noise. Deer, wild turkeys, birds of many kinds are the only visitors. Woods, hills, open sky, and the river below are the nearest sights. Less than five minutes away down in the tiny community of Ahsahka can be had the best hamburgers you'll find anywhere, cooked to order with the condiments you want! Orofino is the rural town about ten minutes away, with an assortment of cafes, from standard American to Mexican, Chinese, and pizza.
The nearest airport to us is Lewiston (LWS) one hour, or Spokane, WA, three hours. Most vacationers reach us by car traveling from areas of Portland, Seattle, Boise ,Coeur d' Alene, Missoula, as well from other parts of the U.S. and Europe. We are located about a day's travel from Seattle or Portland and half-way from there to favorite vacation spots of Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks, which makes a nice stop for those traveling that way.

I enjoy cooking, gardening, reading, civic organizations, and being with family and friends. I also enjoy running my bed and breakfast and enjoy seeing the satisfaction of my guests here at the inn.
