"If we could afford to go out to
Katharine's place once a month we would! This was our
second time there and it was just as lovely as the first
time. Last time there were six of us and there was plenty
of room for everyone. This time, just my husband and I
came and it was fantastic to have the place to
ourselves-Peace, quiet, and beauty. The house is great and
the special touches like a bottle of wine are greatly
"Hansen Woodland Farm is an amazingly magical place! The house is absolutely gorgeous and stocked with everything we could need for our stay. We were so impressed by the wine and personal note Katharine left us along with a bowl of fresh apples! The fridge had fresh eggs, orange juice, bacon and more. Katharine goes well above and beyond for her guests! She is super friendly, responds to inquiries right away and did everything to help make our stay incredible! The back deck was my personal favorite – perfect for sitting back at night watching the stars or enjoying the sunrise while drinking my morning cup of coffee. I love the added touch of the fire pit, complete with a 'smores kit and firewood. The herb garden was also a fun addition! It was nice having fresh herbs to pick for cooking! Overall, this was one of the best places I have ever stayed at!"
"WOW! This was definitely one of the best Airbnb experiences ever! Katharine is the perfect host. She sent us such helpful information before we arrived such as where to get groceries and the cheapest gas, plus detailed directions just in case the GPS didn't work. The house is gorgeous and beautifully decorated yet super comfortable. The setting is very peaceful and restorative. It's excellent for a romantic getaway for a couple or the perfect setting for a fun family reunion. Another bonus was the delicious food she supplied - enough to make a lovely breakfast which was a real treat. I could go on and on but you get the picture - if you are in the Kettle Falls area, this is the place to stay. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!"
"This is a very charming and well appointed home. We wish we had time to use the equipment to float the Kettle River. Katharine provides everything you could possibly need, even farm fresh eggs and a bottle of wine. We enjoyed breakfast and evenings out on the deck. Loved the friendly hummingbird. This would be a great place to take a family, there is even a fire pit and ingredients for s'mores provided. It was a lovely place to stay."
"This is a very cool Airbnb place. Very secluded and quiet but the most comfortable and unique place I have stayed in to date on my world Airbnb travels. Very detailed instructions on the house and the area provided and all sorts of supplies including a FirePit kit with all the necessities for making 'smores. Highly recommended and tremendous value."
"This a very well appointed and spacious house in a lovely location. Fantastic value for money. Thoroughly recommended."
"Katharine's place was a two night stopover for us on a long drive North. It was quiet on the property and very relaxing sitting out on the deck in the evening. It was a very warm time of year.. but there were fans for sleeping. We drove into Kettle Falls and enjoyed some home made ice cream and visited a number of lakes ... but basically appreciated having a rest."
"This house was beautiful. I didn't know what to expect because it was my first Airbnb but Katharine was awesome! She even brought me a blue tooth speaker upon request and we had an almost fully stocked fridge (which I wasn't expecting). It was awesome walking into a kind note with bottle of wine just for us, and even better sitting on the porch enjoying the calm landscape in the mornings. I would highly recommend this Airbnb and hope to return in the future!"
"I absolutely love this house. It was colorful, and beautifully decorated. It felt welcoming, like a home and not just a place to crash. I wish I could buy this house and live in it everyday. If there is anything you need, chances are it is already there. Katharine had a tent and camping set ready to use if you choose to camp somewhere on her property, she also had rafts available to use on the river. There were also dvds, and books at your disposal. My favorite for my family was her s'more set (kindling, firewood, chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers) that was all set to use at the fire pit outside. I stayed there with my husband and two young sons. My little guys were beyond excited to see a room with bunk beds decorated for kids, as well as have kids movies to choose from, and some toys already there to play with. Katharine also was generous and invited my sons to use her grandchildren's play structure near her house on the property. On top of that, I was very impressed at how well stocked the kitchen was. She had bacon, eggs (pretty sure fresh from her own chickens), bread, bagels, fruit, condiments, coffee, creamer, seasonings, etc! You could just show up and not even have to leave to go to the store. Or you could get a few extra items and bake a cake, since she also has every baking and cooking apparatus you probably at home. It felt like a home away from home, and when traveling, it's always nice to eat a healthy home cooked meal. Katharine was also very helpful in directing us to hikes nearby, and responded instantly when I texted her for some suggestions. If we are ever back in the area, we will definitely be staying there!"
"This was our first experience with Airbnb, the bar has been set extremely high with this one. The next time we use Airbnb, they will have a lot to live up to. We loved the quietness, but so much to do just around the property. Katharine was a great host and made sure we had everything we needed and provided excellent directions on where we could find everything and she communicated with us often. It was a great first time out the gate with this one. Would love to stay here again. My kids want to move in permanently!"
"Kathy's place was incredible, the perfect rural retreat. We didn't actually meet Kathy, but the place was so well stocked, and everything so well explained we didn't need to. We extended our stay by a night and wish we could've stayed for longer! Communication was pretty much instant, and the guide in the house explained everything brilliantly. It's the best Airbnb place any of us have stayed."
"We were more than satisfied with the Hansen Woodland getaway. Like a Five Star + Hotel and Private Woods to boot. The remote location was what we were looking for and this fit the request like never before. Multiple thumbs up for us."
"Katharine's property is beautiful, peaceful and just all around perfect. There's plenty of room at the house with everything you need and more. I've never seen an Airbnb so well stocked, especially in the kitchen. Katharine's instructions and communication were excellent. Wish we could have stayed for longer!"

I've never seen an Airbnb so well stocked, especially in the kitchen. Katharine's instructions and communication were excellent. Wish we could have stayed for longer!"
"Our stay was exquisite. It was beautiful, secluded, and luxurious. The best Airbnb I have been to."
"This is a Woodland Oasis for anyone who loves nature and getting away from the hustle and bustle! The house is beautiful and very well decorated! Everything you could need is at the house for your use. Not to mention the property is large and there are walking trails right out your back door where you can see nature at its finest - including deer who visited the property every day of our stay. Ms. Kathy was incredibly helpful with directions on how to use everything in the house and only a phone call away if we needed anything. She had a bottle of wine and a fire in the wood stove going when we arrived and thought of everything we, our kids, our friends, and our dog might need while we were there. The property is close to some great hikes, some fun towns to explore, and a short drive to the Colville National Forest, a Wildlife Preserve, Sherman Pass, and lots of other little side trips! The town of Kettle Falls is about 15 minutes away and has a grocery store and great antique store! If you want to get away and just relax in natural surroundings without having to worry about a thing - this is the place for you!"
"Katharine's place was wonderful! The property and views were stunning, the house was cozy and roomy, and she was highly attentive and accommodating. There was a bottle of wine and lightly stocked fridge waiting for us. We stayed with small children and Katharine went the extra mile to childproof her home and ensure we had anything we may need for them (playpen, highchair, etc). She even allowed us to visit her side of the property to show the kids the chickens and pony she has- the kids loved it! The large tub in the master was amazing, especially with the view from the large windows. Katharine has added a fire pit and a "fire pit fun kit" to the property which is great! I wish we would've had an entire day of our trip to spend exploring the trails on the property and sitting around the fire pit. Next time we are in town we will definitely stay at her place and take more time to enjoy all the amenities she has to offer."
"Katharine, and her beautiful home, far exceeded our expectations. It is sometimes challenging to find a place that will accommodate our "large" family and is affordable enough to stay. Katharine went advice and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed and you answer any questions we had. When she says that her kitchen is stocked with the basics, she isn't exaggerating. We have to drive seven hours to stay at Katharine's and we wouldn't hesitate to do it again."
"This was probably one of the best rental experiences I've had. Katharine was so organized, easy to communicate with and accommodating. She even built us a fire to make our check in more comfortable and welcoming. House rules were so minimal and reasonable and check in and out was so simple I had to keep checking the manual to make sure it was really that easy! The house was fully stocked better than any I've experienced. Anything you could possibly need.... Towels, linens, dishes, appliances and beds were quality and luxurious. The house is so unique and we'll furnished I felt like I was in a high end resort. Interesting artwork, classic reading material, games for kids, even some complimentary groceries! The house is located in a beautiful area and just down the road to a little Orchard market. It's only 20 min to town either direction, which is no longer than most city routes anyway. The towns nearby are charming and the sights are plentiful in the area. Canada is just a quick drive north. This location has to best of both worlds - secluded in nature, and close to a handful of charming antique stores and rustic cafes or a quick 7 mile drive to the larger town of Colville. I only booked I for a few days while I was here visiting friends because it seemed like a more comfortable (yet comparably priced) alternative to a motel. I didn't read too much about it ahead of time but it turned put to be such a nice surprise I didn't want to leave the house! This is a good weekend or extended vacation retreat for a romantic or a family scenario. I highly recommend it to anyone."
"It was my third time visiting this gorgeous house, as I'm in town monthly for work. Katharine always does an amazing job, leaving a bottle of wine and lots of goodies in the fridge, and allowed me to check in early and had a fire ready for my arrival! I wish I could stay next month, but it's already booked. Until next time, thanks again!"
"This place blew us away! We spent the whole time admiring the decor and homey touches. It was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed and then some."
"Absolutely a perfect getaway! So quiet, beautiful scenery, and the house was amazing! We got to the house late at night, but there was a fire going for us, a welcome note and dog bones for our dogs. There is nothing more we could have wanted from the house, we even had to do a little unexpected work on our car and the garage was perfect so we were not out in the weather. Kathy has great communication and is so nice! Thank you for this wonderful get away!"
"It was my second time staying at Katharine's place and she did not disappoint! My boyfriend joined me on my trip as it was over Valentine's day and Katharine was nice enough to get a fire ready for our arrival, as well as leave some beautiful flowers, candy, and wine!"
"Came for one night looking for a scenic, cozy stay. Took with us that experience and then some. Katherine was a wonderful host who was accommodating and kind. The extensive house manual made it incredibly easy for us to understand where everything was. Would absolutely return."
"Katharine's place was exactly what we was looking for...a relaxing weekend away. We were welcomed by a cozy fire warming up the entry. The kitchen was well stocked with nearly everything you need. We cooked all our meals very easily. The scenic view from the master bedroom was a treat. Very close to Sherman Pass for fun afternoon of snowshoeing. The rural and secluded setting was ideal and we were happy to find that the internet connection and speed was impeccable. This place is huge; my kids would have loved it here. Maybe another trip is in order."
"Katharine's house was by far the most amazing house I have had the pleasure in staying on Airbnb. She really has an eye for decorating, which is evident through the bright colors and the custom detail. I was given very detailed directions to the house, and upon arrival she had a fire waiting for me, in addition to a bottle of wine and lots of goodies in the fridge! The kitchen is well stocked...she has almost every spice you could imagine. So I would make sure to visit the house first before the grocery store. There is a very detailed binder guide telling you where you can find things in the house, as well as an overview of the property. It was very quiet, and I couldn't believe that the deer came right up to the house. The upstairs shower was AMAZING! She had lots of mini travel sized soaps/shampoos/toothpastes/etc so I wouldn't worry too much if you've found out you've forgotten something..Katharine probably has it! I was in the area on business so access to wifi was very important for me, and it was very reliable. Katharine was very accessible and good at communicating, available whenever I had a question. The house was amazing and I am excited to visit again in a few short weeks!"
"House and location are amazing. There was a warm fire going when we arrived and we were provided eggs, bacon, bread and OJ for a special breakfast. House is warm and inviting. Spent two nights playing games, watching TV and relaxing in the big tub! It was amazing. Planning a trip there this summer with my kiddos."
"The home was beautiful and fully equipped, with lots of unexpected extras like apples for feeding the deer and an offer to bring groceries from the nearby town. There were comfortable beds for all 7 of us. We had a lovely stay."
"Kathrine is very kind and welcoming and her communication was quick and helpful. The home is so beautiful and unique and is perfect for groups. It is surrounded by forest and within walking distance of the spectacular Columbia River. I highly recommend the place to everyone who seeks to enjoy the nature amid quiet beauty. We look forward to returning in the future!"
"Katharine was kind, welcoming and accommodating to our needs. We contacted her last minute for a place to stay along our long roadtrip from Seattle to Calgary, and she was more than happy to greet us at a late hour in the snow to get us into a cozy space. And a cozy space it was indeed! The house is beautiful, colorful and spacious, and the bathtub and shower made us feel like we were in a luxury home in the Swiss alps. You will love staying here. I would recommend staying at Katharine's home to anyone, and especially couples or a group of friends."
"Kathy was a wonderful host and her communication before our stay and during was quick and so helpful. We arrived late to find a warm fire burning away and a lovely personalized greeting in the kitchen. The home is unique, spacious, and cozy. I would highly recommend this home to anyone visiting the area whether they be a couple or a family with children. We look forward to returning in the future!"
"Fabulous stay! Amazing hospitality. Would definitely stay again."
"Our crew truly enjoyed your home. As we are a restoration cleaning company, we know clean, and your home was very well cleaned, comfortable yet still current and updated decor wise. All 4 guests truly enjoyed their stay and have all commented that they will make a future visit outside of work. Thank you again for taking such good care of our team!!"
"Our stay was fantastic. The house is loaded with amenities, and some great ideas for things to do. Our daughter loved the kids' room, and didn't want to leave. Perfect getaway."
"A fantastic house, in a beautiful location. Delightfully decorated with all the comforts of home, including a fridge stocked with lots of goodies. We couldn't have found a better place for our family to stay."
"Well-stocked is an understatement! This beautifully decorated house had so many thoughtful touches, you can tell the owner is committed to going above and beyond as a host. Fresh apples and other breakfast items in the fridge, a well-stocked kitchen, any toiletry or first aid item you needed, Netflix, comfortable deck furniture, you name it. We stayed here for our anniversary and this was exactly the peaceful respite we needed. No other houses within view, no noise, plenty of wildlife viewed from the deck, a beautiful view, and a cozy home. We couldn't have asked for more, and we'd certainly stay here again. Very grateful to our host Katharine."
"This home is amazing! I can't pick my favorite thing about the home at all. The decorations and colors in the home we're spectacular. And that bathtub! I'd go back just for that! Kathy provided exceptional hospitality and quick responses."
"This place is amazing. You get a tranquil setting in the woods with amazing views. We saw wildlife. We were able to have our dogs and they loved it. You are close to the river and lakes. The house is fully stocked and has anything you need."
"Very quiet, peaceful, and beautiful area. Would love to go back to the area with my wife and family not just a business trip."
"Nice lovely home in the middle of the woods and nicely decorated. Should have stayed 3 days if vacation planning had allowed it !"
"Kathy is definitely a 'hostess with the mostest' as my Mom used to say. The house accommodated our party of six adults and one infant beautifully. The amenities were the best of any place we’ve ever stayed. We were able to keep the house comfortable even with hot temperatures. There were great beaches and breathtaking scenery nearby . Kathy provided all the basics- oil, spices, butter, flour, sugar, fruit ( including cherries-we were there at the right season) , eggs and bacon, bagels, cream cheese, mayo, salad dressing, bread (even gluten free at our request). Also coffee and tea- the list goes on! Be sure to do the loop from Kettle Falls through Inchelium- the free ferry is fun."
"The house was perfect and the host is amazing and very accommodating. Will definitely stay again."
"Awesome experience. Love the hospitality. The house is beautiful."
"Incredible place, special for rest and disconnects from the city, the house had everything that you need to have an great stay. Thank to the host."
"Kathy's home was the BEST we have yet stayed in thru Airbnb! First, she is the most communicative and by check-in we had all the information we needed to get there easily and "know" what was what with the house so we were able to settle in quickly. The house is so much more than we expected. She has lovingly filled it with cherished possessions....we truly felt we were staying at the home of a long time friend. She welcomed our little dog Ruby also which was important as we travel mostly with her. If you are a cook like I am the kitchen has everything you need and she also leaves you with "extras" like eggs, bacon, fruit , milk, juice, etc. Kitchen is also stocked with spices and condiments, coffee, tea, etc. The large soaking tub in the master bath was so wonderful to have...lying there gazing out at the beautiful trees. The property is expansive with trails weaving thru for you to wander and enjoy. We loved walking Ruby there but talked about how wonderful it would be for a family with children...the perfect place for a special family-time trip. All in all we feel Kathy's home and Kathy herself made this the best stay yet!"
"Great quiet place to stay. Will def stay again in the future. Next time I will have to take advantage of the fire pit kit and make some s’mores."
"Fantastic place. The home is super quaint, but had plenty of space for our two families. There were some wonderful trails for morning and evening walks with our boys. The firepit area was great. The home was more than well stocked. Katharine was a thoughtful and communicative host. We will be back!"
"This is a fabulous private place. Kathy is an excellent host offering to do anything to help you out. We really enjoyed walking our dogs on all the awesome trails and very grateful for allowing our two large dogs to stay there! We loved the fresh farm eggs. She provides many little extras that really make a stay here special! We enjoyed visiting her farm to see her friendly goats and chickens. Highly recommend this place!"
"This is an amazing place! We didn't want to leave! Katharine made us feel special and right at home. Couldn't ask for a better house or host! We are planning to come back as soon as we can. I would give 10 stars if I could. I recommend to everyone."
"Loved our time. The home was great, lots of interesting things to see. Wonderful views from all the windows and so many interesting wildlife. Special touches and welcome card awaiting when we got there."
"We were a group of eight students visiting from Vancouver, Canada. We loved the seclusion and the nature - while the house itself was a bit far away from towns, we really enjoyed exploring the area and everyone we met was incredibly friendly. If going in winter, might want to bring your own snowshoes/skis to explore the property more readily - there weren’t any rental places nearby. The house itself was beautiful and cozy, and Katharine was incredibly accommodating and generous, even providing us with breakfast supplies for the first day. Would definitely stay again!"
"This is an incredible and spacious place tucked away in the woods. We woke up here to a veritable winter wonderland – with our dog frolicking in the snow. Katharine is an very thorough and helpful host, you can tell she really works at make the place a good experience for guests. We will definitely come back another winter and potentially other seasons as well."
"I honestly cannot rave about Katharine or her place enough! From the very start she was above and beyond with her helpfulness, detail and information. She sent us detailed directions, pictures and details about the house and even a link to an awesome video tour of the property. When we arrived ,it was to a super sweet and warm welcome. The house is absolutely gorgeous, enormous and has everything in it you could ever possibly need. The location is an absolute dream. Nestled in the middle of a gorgeous forest full of trees, deer and hiking trails. Yet it’s just a few minutes from both the river and Kettle Falls and Colville. We hiked, played by the river and went into town for lunch and pool. Katharine provided us with all sorts of tips on places to visit and see and checked in from time to time to make sure we were having a great trip. I can not recommend her or this property enough and we will absolutely be going back again."
"Wonderful and very cozy place. Loved everything about it, including our kids, who were wishing to stay longer :)"
"A cozy, spacious, and family-friendly house (with a great collection of books!), a beautiful property nestled in the woods, and an attentive and caring host--this was our best Airbnb experience yet. I recommend Katharine's place without hesitation. You will not be disappointed."
"This was my second time staying at Kathy’s place and it was again wonderful. A beautiful house in a beautiful setting."
"Katharine's place is the perfect getaway. A cozy fire in the stove and a beautiful snowy view – the perfect winter day! The amenities provided were exceptional. Definitely a great place to stay if you enjoy cooking as, in addition to breakfast supplies, there are many dry staples and spices available... Even a Smores kit! I also enjoyed all of the artwork and books. This has been one of my favorite Airbnb stays."
"This was my second trip to this house and same as last time it was amazing. Katharine is one the best hosts that I ever seen. She is so accurate about the detail of the house and so helpful. The house is always better than your expectation. If you're looking for a quite place to relax and have fun with your friends and family, I totally recommend it. I'm sure I'll be back to this place next year."
"We love Kathy’s house. It is clean, warm and welcoming! It feels like home. We definitely will book again! Thank you again for having us."
"Very nice place to stay if you want to be secluded and away from town, but yet not too far away! Extremely nice lady and clean house."
"We loved the subtle touches such as the welcome bottle of wine and the warm fire in the fireplace. Everything was ready for us when we arrived, and it was so nice to step into such a warm and cozy house. It sure felt good on a cold winter’s night. We’ll certainly be back."
"Everything was beyond expectation!! Thank you so much!!"
"Wonderful welcoming home in a cool area with much to see and do Kat provides way way more than typical bnb hostess in food drink and toiletries Everything is clean and everything works. I will come again."
"What a simply amazing and beautiful place to stay. Katharine is an amazing host and very easy to communicate with. This place is truly a treasure and has everything you could ever want in a relaxing stay."
"The house was lovely, clean and more than we expected. Communication was great and the house was stocked with everything we needed. We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Hansen Woodland Farm."
"This is a really nice home and Katharine is a great host. My stay was short, so I wasn't able to take advantage of everything, but the home was clean, the bed was comfy, there were farm fresh eggs (delicious!), bacon, bread, and even wine. Oh, and a couple biscuits for my dogs. It's a spacious home, nicely decorated, and we'll equipped with everything you might need. The location is convenient to Kettle Falls and the drive from Highway 20 is shorter than you might expect. It's very quiet at the home. I hope I can return and spend more time here!"
booked this place for a home base for a family reunion...
I wasn't sure what to expect or if it would work for my
older relatives. I was amazed. This perfect little patch
of paradise in the middle of the forest far exceeded my
expectations. Kathy was an amazing hostess. We started
with a personalized welcome to the home, the house was
immaculate and fully loaded with everything we could have
possibly anticipated. Kathy communicated every day being
sure we were well taken care of and answering any
questions we may have had. The stress I had going into the
weekend for the reunion disappeared the minute I arrived.
Everyone loved the place and we had already decided to
book again the following summer. It was not a hard
decision and we were leaving the reunion already stress
free for next year. Simply put, it was an amazing stay and
I STRONGLY recommend this place to everyone."
"Superb hospitality. The foresight and planning Kathy devotes to meeting visitor needs is amazing (she knew what we needed before we thought to look for it). We greatly enjoyed our woodland retreat and will recommend it to friends and family. THANK YOU!"
"Our stay at Hansen Woodland Farm surpassed all of the other VRBO and the like vacations we have enjoyed. The house is very well equipped, we had everything we needed to just enjoy the setting and each other. The house itself is a gem of a place with Kathy's carefully curated collection of decor pieces. We felt pampered and welcomed. Supplies were generous and plentiful. The fridge had us saying wow to farm fresh eggs and a gigantic bowl of fresh cherries! Morning sun on the deck was splendid under a blue sky and a hummingbird flitting by. Eating breakfast while watching deer enjoying there's is a rare treat. Robins setting a nearby nest hatched while we were there. The bear I saw was a few miles up the road and added excitement. Surrounded by the pines, we couldn't see the road and enjoyed being in our own world. The folks we met in the community are friendly and hospitable and Kathy is a wonderful host."
"This property surpassed expectations! A gorgeous home nestled in the trees with amenities you wouldn't expect. Flat screen, satellite, and wifi went unused because it was better to enjoy games on the deck. Haag cove was just ten minutes away for swimming or kayaking on the Columbia River. Cabin has everything and we arrived to a bottle of wine and treats waiting for our pups. The trails were beautiful and peaceful. It was great to be able to throw some laundry in the day before leaving for less unpacking stress returning home. I strongly recommend this property if looking for some peace and quiet along with the perks of a modern home. Side note- no AC which is listed. We rustled up fans and ensured as soon as the sun went down we had those going to make for a comfortable sleep.. ..ps. fresh eggs were a treat and there are also deer that hang out by the trough set up on the property, gorgeous birds, and some turkey that like to roam nearby."
"Beautiful, secluded and quiet. Kathy has thought of everything you may require and then some. Kettle Falls was a friendly town and Harvest Foods has all that you need for groceries. Lots of deer, wild turkeys and birds galore! Just sit back and chill in nature!"
"To be honest, when I originally made my reservations for this property, I was extremely skeptical. I couldn't reconcile the pictures with the price. But as it was the only affordable option in the area - even cheaper than a hotel in Colville! - I decided to take the risk. THANK GOODNESS I DID! This house has everything you could ask for: a king bed, a queen bed, a day bed, a kid's bed, and more! Fully stocked kitchen, not only referring to cooking- and dish-ware, but also to items Kathy provides in the pantry and fridge. There's a firepit with tons of s'more supplies. Camping and rafting supplies. Dish Network if you need to unwind in front of the television (but why would you on this gorgeous property?). It is truly like walking into someone's home instead of into a rental property. It's the details (pain pills, first aid kit, fresh flowers, candles, impressive library, etc.) that make this home "homey" and a wonder to behold. ...[T]his property is definitely 5-star worthy and I'd say there again regardless of these issues. Kathy was a wonderful, unobtrusive host. The property is beautiful. I only wish I would've planned an active vacation instead of a reading vacation so I could've taken better advantage of the outdoor activities the area has to offer. Tip: Wait for sunset, fill the tub in the master bathroom, light the candles, and pour yourself a nice glass of wine. You won't regret it."
"Wow, is all I can say. Staying at Kathy's little mountain paradise was more than anyone could ever expect. Anything a person could ever need.....it's there! I only wish we could have stayed longer. The furnishings and décor consisted on antiques and art. It was colorful, fun, and homey. No need to pack a whole lot of food, because her kitchen was fully stocked with any spice, condiment, or cooking utensils you'd ever need. She even had a wonderful herb garden, so if you want fresh herbs all you had to do was go down and snip a few plants. We will be staying there again!"
"First as you drive up to the house it's rustic charm is second to none! Upon entering you experience a house that is tastefully decorated to match the country charm and nearby picturesque landscape. The house itself is stocked with almost everything you would need to move in and stay for a weekend or a month! The area around Kettle falls has breath taking scenery and many outdoor adventure options. We would not hesitate to return to Hansen Woods in the future when the family needs an outdoor adventure again!"
"This is an amazing place, very private & quiet. My husband and I rented this place for a quiet retreat & we were not disappointed. Clean, well stocked & easy access to town. The soaking tub is to die for. This is most likely the best VRBO we've ever stayed at...& we've stayed at the quite a few! We will be back!"
"Very nice home with lots of accommodations. Far more than I normally expect!"
"We all loved the house had a great family get-together. The house is beautiful and clean. We loved all the rooms and the layout of the house. Walking down the trails and outdoor fire. We would recommend anyone to stay here looking for peace and quiet. We loved it."
"This is our first time to the Kettle Falls area. We picked this lovely house to be out in the country, and it was a good middle point for the different activities we had planned during our stay. House is two-story, clean, and well stocked. Owner was attentive and kept in contact with us to make sure we had everything we could need or want on our trip. Gave us excellent advice on things to do and places to see. We especially loved this house because we could take our two dogs with us. They enjoyed the open grounds to go for walks and have new places to sniff out. I wouldn't necessarily recommend for senior dogs who can't walk up and down stairs as the stairs are very steep (if you can't carry them that is). We would stay here again and again if we find ourselves in Eastern WA again."
"Nice, quiet, the best stocked rental we've ever stayed at. Would definitely stay again."
"Paradise. The accommodations were fantastic. We saw wildlife pulling into the driveway, walked a very nice trail system on the property. It is absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately a wild fire broke out a few miles away so we had to leave paradise early. We were quickly reimbursed for our shortened stay. We will be back."
"Beautifully decorated, fully stocked house. Wonderful property with the occasional deer friend.
Great "customer service" by the owner. House has everything you could want except air conditioning. Would definitely recommend."
"Wonderful experience. Thank you for sharing your wonderful house with us. The breakfast things that were provided were excellent. Farm eggs, bacon, juice, half and half, bagels and cream cheese, fruit, jam, butter – everything to make a beautiful breakfast to eat out on the deck. The house was decorated so tastefully, and the bed was super comfortable. I would definitely stay there again."
"A fantastic and beautiful place to be when getting out of the city!! Truly paradise!! Kathy was amazing and made sure our stay was comfortable. We felt at home and would love to go back!! The trails were named, which we thought was very creative. Every morning we would see the deer which would come down to graze or lay down in the thicket. The layout of the house was very nice. The many colors and home interior was very artistic which we felt added to our wonderful experience!! Thank you Kathy for allowing us to stay and for being the perfect hostess!!"
"The location and place were great. I highly recommend it. Great stay. Very nice in every way."
"It was excellent. Had wonderful time. So many things to see. Thank you so much."
"Great, quiet property with plenty of amenities. The house was perfectly equipped with everything we needed. The owner had so many special touches to make us feel right at home. The beds were comfortable and clean. We plan on staying here again. The trails around the property were quaint and the owner is a great steward of the land. Enjoyed walking with the tame goats and bird watching."
"Best time ever! We had such a wonderful time at Hansen Woodland Farm. It was the perfect place to get together with our family. This was our first experience with a vacation rental and we are pretty sure Kathy goes beyond the norm! It's just the best place ever! Thank you, Kathy!!"
"An enjoyable and relaxing stay. We had a wonderful time and look forward to doing it again. The house was warm and inviting. The decor was bright and festive. Enjoyed the visit by the deer, turkeys and even 4 small goats. Kitchen was well stocked. Bedrooms were more than comfortable. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality."
"Wonderful house on a secluded bit of land. This house is cozy, comfy and fully loaded. All the amenities are there and then some. This is one of the few homes that I've been to where even the kitchen knives are sharp. Kathy is a wonderful host and even provided a bottle of wine for us to enjoy the first night.This was a perfect place to get outdoors with or sacrificing any modern comforts."
"Absolutely Perfect! My girlfriend and I recently stayed at this property and we could not have been happier with our stay! Kathy was a wonderful communicator and thanks to her detailed and thorough instructions we were able to check in and check out on our own which was very convenient! The whole property is beautiful and the house was amazing. We could not believe how nice everything was, especially for such a fantastic price. Everything in the house was very clean and very well stocked. Pretty much anything you could forget to pack is provided! We were absolutely delighted with every aspect of our stay and are already planning to come back again in the future. We cannot speak highly enough about this property and Kathy as an incredible host. Thank you so much for such a great stay, we will be back!!"
"Beautiful Scenery, Ample Space. We stayed at Kathy's home during a winter storm and she made sure the driveway was plowed for us before we got there. The scenery around the home is beautiful with the snow covered evergreens and the multiple families of deer that would casually wander throughout the property. The home has ample space for many people. Kathy's communication was great. We would stay here again."
"Perfect get away. Kathy was a fabulous host! We were welcomed with a warm fire burning and a very nice bottle of wine. We cooked, baked, hiked and bathed. We absolutely loved the house and all its charm. Thank you again, Kathy!"
"Will be back someday! Really nice! Very clean! Great communication with host! Would love to come back someday!"
"A great place to stay. It was great staying there with the upstairs views and large tub. Plenty of walking trails on the property. The place was well stocked and welcoming."
"5-star retreat with all the amenities and solitude of paradise in a peaceful forest setting. I booked this place for a home base for a family reunion. I wasn't sure what to expect or if it would work for my older relatives. I was amazed. This perfect little patch of paradise in the middle of the forest far exceeded my expectations. Kathy was an amazing hostess. We started with a personalized welcome to the home, the house was immaculate and fully loaded with everything we could have possibly anticipated. Kathy communicated every day being sure we were well taken care of and answering any questions we may have had. The stress I had going into the weekend for the reunion disappeared the minute I arrived. Everyone loved the place and we had already decided to book again the following summer. It was not a hard decision and we were leaving the reunion already stress free for next year. Simply put, it was an amazing stay and I STRONGLY recommend this place to everyone."
"Perfect, couldn't have asked for more. Superb hospitality. The foresight and planning Kathy devotes to meeting visitor needs is amazing (she knew what we needed before we thought to look for it). We greatly enjoyed our woodland retreat and will recommend it to friends and family. THANK YOU!"
"Loved it. Well kept, well cared for, lots of TLC on part of the owner; we enjoyed it! Thank you so much for working with us for budget!"
