Built 1926, Timber Inn is located on the main street of Pierce, ID. This rustic log inn, owned by Rob Harrell since 1990, is a retreat for hunters, snowmobilers, or groups of travelers who would rent the entire floor for privacy yet togetherness. For lodging, the Timber Inn has five rooms for rent and all have been remodeled and redecorated since Rob bought the inn. The use of the upstairs kitchen and sitting room, with cable TV and high-speed internet, is included with the room rental, as are laundry facilities.
Pierce, a gold rush town that is home to the oldest courthouse in Idaho, is central to many breathtaking landscapes. Located in the mountains of North Central Idaho offering an abundance of activities in the area, guests here at Timber Inn can easily find fun and exciting recreations. During the summer and fall, enjoy the beautiful patio deck area, complete with a barbeque and horseshoe pit or spend time camping, hunting, fishing, backpacking, berry-picking, and gold panning. In the winter months, enjoy the outdoors snowmobiling and downhill and cross-country skiing.
June 11 is the Deer Creek Fishing Tournament at Deer Creek Reservoir, sponsored by the Pierce-Weippe Chamber of Commerce. There will be prizes for the heaviest fish and for the largest fish. Be sure to take pleasure in the fishing fun for the whole family.
After engaging in the outdoor adventures, drop by our café and satisfy your appetite. Make sure you try our Timber Burger – the best burger in Idaho. The dinner menu includes steak and seafood and at 5am breakfast is made by Rob.
