My house is 5 minutes north of downtown Moscow just off highway 95/North Main. The property is a hillside of grass, trees, flowers, and gardens. When the cabin was built in 1940, it was surrounded by residences and fields. Now it is surrounded mostly by businesses. Nearby is a big grocery store, drug stores, breweries, bars, and restaurants. UI campus is about 15 minutes away.
Typical of a traditional log cabin, the main floor consists of a big porch, kitchen, eating area, living room (all connected), guest bedroom, bathroom, and utility room. The guest bedroom is in the center of the house, next to the bathroom. It was "the library" and still has books and family photos. There is a window and a wood floor. The bathroom is large. The tub is a clawfoot that was enclosed in the '50s. A shower was added in the '80s. Be advised, if you have mobility issues, this is not the bathing system for you because you have to step in and out of the tub to shower. Heat is from a natural gas stove. The porch, with a couch, table, and chairs, is used as another room in the summer. Upstairs are 3 big bedrooms. You can stay upstairs if you like, and enjoy a larger and much more private space, but obviously, you have to go up and down stairs. The mattresses are on the floor, floors are carpeted. If you are very tall, you will be longer than any of my mattresses. I only list one room, one person because there is only one bathroom. The cabin is surrounded on all sides by grassy yards with flowerbeds, bushes, and trees. The walkway from the driveway to the front porch is uneven, narrow, and makes a 90 degree turn. I have a dog (Border Collie/Aussie) and two cats, all friendly.
The downstairs is all common area (except for, obviously, the guest bedroom). Feel free to cook you own food, use my appliances and cookware.
Interaction with guests
I work, walk the dog, go to the gym, have a busy social life, go to meetings, but I'm always available to give you a tour of Moscow. I've lived in Moscow for over 41 years.
Other things to note
There is no sign on North Main/95 that says "West Morton". There is a sign on the east side that says "Morton" but you have to be in the left turn lane of 95 so you can turn left or west on Morton. On the corner is a 3-story apartment house. My cabin is next to the apartment house. You won't see any "116". The porch has a string of red chili lights. My driveway is a sharp turn to the right and uphill. Park in the driveway, not on the road. If you arrive at night, use a flashlight from the driveway to the porch.
Guests of guests leave by 10 pm.
I work part-time at the Moscow Food Coop; previously I taught English (in Chile, China, and WSU), and before and during that, was an academic editor and writer at UI and WSU. I have lived in Moscow (and in this cabin) since 1976, except for time working in other places and traveling. When I was younger, I did a lot of cycling. I hike and backpack. I participate in Citizens Climate Lobby and support groups such as Friends of the Clearwater and Advocates for the West. I volunteer for the Washington-Idaho Symphony and am a member of the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have two sons and three grandchildren.
