Check-in is after 2 p.m. and check-out is by 11 a.m. unless otherwise negotiated.

Deposit
For short stays, we ask for a deposit in the amount of the first night’s stay to hold a reservation.  The deposit will be returned in full if a cancellation is made more than a month before the scheduled date.  Beyond that, return of a deposit will depend on our ability to rebook the canceled dates. 

For stays longer than a week, we ask for a deposit of 30% of the total, refundable if cancellation is made more than a month in advance.  A refund for cancellation less than a month in advance will happen only if we are able to rebook stays of equivalent total value during that time period.

About:
The Peterson Barn is a fully furnished 750 sq. ft. guesthouse in southeast Moscow, Idaho, available by the night, week or month.

In the tradition of English cruck frames, the Peterson Barn was built by hand in 1997 from curved timbers.  We felled the trees, cut the joinery by hand, and did a barn raising with about a hundred of our closest friends. Many of the timbers are rescued urban hardwoods and each has a story.

History:
This structure was never actually a barn. It was constructed as a guest house above a two car garage and greenhouse. It was built by hand using a timber frame technique from England called “cruck” frame, where long curved pieces support a ridge pole.  Other timber frame projects by Nils Peterson can be seen here.
