The Gooding Hotel Bed & Breakfast is the quintessential B&B experience. It is owned and operated by descendants of the city founding fathers, Dean & Judee Gooding. They take great pride in making each and every guest feel welcome – even to the point of feeling like family. Their breakfasts are made to order – delightfully with a regional flair. Their human interest and conversation talents are a rare, yet refreshing find in today’s B&B community.
The décor is 100% antique – It really is like stepping back 100 years. There are no TVs and no telephones (…except in the back porch common area). The occasional floor squeak and enchanting bathroom fixtures are a definite reminder that we’ve temporarily slipped out of today’s modern world. The change is surprisingly uplifting.
I’ve stayed in B&B’s from the Olympic Peninsula to the rocky shores of Maine; The Gooding Hotel B&B places in the top 3 on my favorites list for traditional B&B standards, authenticity, and overall experience.
Who’d ever expect to find a gem like this, off the beaten path, in a charming little town in Idaho?
