Property descriptionLooking for a lifestyle change? This picture-perfect historical estate is an ideal opportunity for you to leave the hustle and bustle behind, and embark upon your new adventures at bucolic Kettle Falls. Kettle Falls, on the upper Columbia River, lies about 40 miles south of the Canadian border, and just under 2 hours away from Spokane. Once an ancient salmon fishing site, Kettle Falls is now the gateway to Lake Roosevelt and the beautiful Columbia River, where there are wineries and orchards abound. Nature enthusiasts will revel in the many outdoor activities amid the stunning views.
Introducing this sprawling estate on 50 acres with 1/4 mile of Colville River frontage. The main house and dormitories were built around the original St Francis Regis Mission building by the Sisters of Providence in 1869, when the Sacred Heart Academy was started. In 1934, the Dominican Nuns established the Lady of the Valley Convent, and the gym was built in 1954 as part of the Lay Women’s retreat house. In 1972, the Circle Bar J. Ministries ran a Boys home at the property.
In 1983, the estate was converted into a private residence. When the dormitories were demolished at that time, the main house was taken down to the studs and completely rebuilt. The frame and foundation were part of the original building shown in pictures circa 1900. All siding, windows, wiring, plumbing and interior were replaced in 1984. In 1989, this estate was established as a Bed and Breakfast.
Be transported through this enchanted history as soon as you drive through the double gates that open up to the verdant tree-lined driveway, where birds sing to welcome you to their retreat. The estate consists of 3 parcels of land. The main home boasts a total of 5314 sf with a 3 car attached garage. 4 ensuite bedrooms were created in this country home with large gathering spaces, including a gourmet country kitchen, a beautiful dining room with a view of the mountains, a living room with a cozy fireplace, a second story loft area, and large bonus rooms on the top floor.
There are a total of 7 out-buildings: a classic barn in sturdy condition, a second residence with 2 beds/1 bath/4 car garage that is currently rented out on a month-to-month lease, an indoor half-court gymnasium with full basement and a completely remodeled “honeymoon suite” with exterior access, kitchenette, and full bathroom with clawfoot tub and separate shower, another 4 car garage with full basement for chicken coup and small animal area, a chic 600sf garden shed that has a decorated white interior, a pump house which houses one of the irrigation pumps, and a generator house that holds a 1940’s era generator.
Spend the morning harvesting vegetables from your own gardens and tending to the flowers, or perhaps take a stroll in the rose garden. Relax with a cool glass of lemonade while enjoying the afternoon breeze at the gazebo that was thoughtfully constructed in the coolest part of the entire estate. In the evenings, invite a few friends over for easy conversation and an early dinner, then take an evening walk through the pastures to explore your private river frontage.
Or this could be an ideal opportunity to convert the estate into a magical wedding or event venue, a church, a winery, or perhaps run as AirBNB. The choice is yours — make this your own private adventure!
