The upstairs features an open loft for kids or singles in 4 twin beds (one is a trundle) with decor that showcases mother bears and cute cubs. The large wolf room, also upstairs, sleeps 2 in a king bed. The third upstairs bedroom, located over the garage, sleeps 4 -- two in a new king bed and 2 in a queen sleeper. This huge room, with its own special amenities, includes a sitting area, a moveable privacy screen, 2 large closets and a gas log fireplace; while the decor focuses on bears and other wildlife. All 3 upstairs bedrooms overlook the river directly below.

A small yard off the elevated porch gives you access to the river which has just been cleaned up and stabilized thanks to a grant from the state and the city. Other special amenities for you to enjoy include a Jacuzzi tub featuring a rain shower head, a full sized laundry room with washer, dryer, and storage shelves, and a vacant lot next door where kids can use up their excess energy.
