A Little About the Inn
After an invigorating day of sports or exploration, outdoor enthusiasts and tourists alike will love the charming accommodations at Cottonwood Street Inn. Although the property began many years ago as an Idaho-Canadian line shack, it has been lovingly renovated to provide the comfort and modern conveniences our guests demand, without sacrificing the charm and quirkiness found only in the Idaho mountains. Guest room renovations are complete, with current focus on the exterior to create a welcoming environment inside and out!
Located a block from Idaho City's historic downtown, our guests can enjoy the shops, historic buildings, museums and historic buildings, restaurants, the local hot springs spa, and special events that make Idaho City the perfect choice for your next overnight getaway.
A Little About the Innkeeper
Hello! My name is Cynthia and I moved to Idaho from Minnesota in the autumn of 2018, after my only child left for college. Although Minnesota has a lot to offer, it's always been a dream of mine to live in the mountains. On my first visit to Idaho City to look at this property, I instantly fell in love with the warm and friendly people every bit as much as the stunning scenery. And even though we get tons of snow here in the winter, it's never too cold to go out and play in it, which I really appreciate. I'm an outdoor enthusiast, and Idaho City is like nature's playground all year round for folks like me! My dog Hagrid and I hike the trails around town every day, and the beauty here never gets old.
For several years I ran a large Victorian inn, but really prefer the intimate and more casual vibe of Cottonwood Street Inn. The guest rooms feel homey, and they should, because most of the decor is from my own home back in Minnesota. I love the idea of creating a place where people can come to make wonderful memories, so all of the renovations have been designed to create a welcoming and comfortable space for my guests. I've also collected some extra equipment like snowshoes and cross-country skis for guests to use while they are here, and plan to add a couple of mountain bikes to that list in the future.
I look forward to meeting you!

Our inn is a stone's throw from beautiful mountain trails. The local ranger station can help you find the perfect trails for hiking, mountain-biking, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and more! They can also point you to the best fishing or kayaking. Whatever the outdoor activity, Idaho City provides a stunning backdrop to help you make cherished memories.
Idaho City's historic downtown is a flash back to the old west, with wonderful shops, restaurants, visitor center, museums, and more!
