Guest Comments and Reviews

Not everyone who stays at Tabor House leaves us comments and reviews but, when they do, we try our best to share them with you here:

This was a great place to visit and our family really enjoyed our stay! The children especially enjoyed the thrill of fun and creative touches the host has incorporated. The host was helpful and very timely in his responses as well. We would stay here again.


We have rented houses in Wallace for an annual bike ride on the Hiawatha with friends. This is our first stay at the Tabor House. We absolutely loved the house and especially the porch! It can accommodate a large group sharing an evening! The kitchen is large and the dining room was great!! The bedrooms were extremely comfortable. The house is very well stocked and pretty much had everything we needed. I highly recommend this house and am so grateful we were able to stay there.


Great property with everything a family needs to enjoy historic Wallace. Perfect place for a family to gather, hike and bike.


Fantastic location, great property, everything we could have asked for.


Lovely Victorian style home in downtown Wallace. We really enjoyed our stay. If you have younger children, definitely rent the attic, our 10 year olds had a blast having their own attic retreat.


Cute Victorian house with modern appliances and bathrooms. We used every room in the house. The grandkids had fun looking for the ‘Heart of the House’. Very unique touch!


Great time
No problems


Scotty, Thank you so much for allowing us to rent your beautiful home. The five of us ladies cannot rave enough about the house. Every convenience is there and location is perfect to get to the Historic Wallace Blues Fest. We look forward to coming back next year! Thank you Jennie

“The Tabor House is great for families. The 9 and 10 year olds in our group loved the attic. The house includes many nice touches that make the place feel like home: kitchen staples, extra tp and towels, etc. We enjoyed easy access to town and the Pulaski Trail”.


“Historic home in a quaint little town full of history, fun, and great biking. Scotty is great to work with and quick to respond. Highly recommend his place”.

“The home was more spacious than the impression we got from the photos. Great kitchen and laundry space, as well as room to spread out for meals and “game time.” Will definitely book again”.


“This is my second time staying at the Tabor House and it was just perfect. We had a ladies weekend with Mom’s and daughter’s and the home was just what wished for. Between the festive holiday decorating and the fresh falling snow we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect and cozy home. Thank you Scotty for the second visit. Look forward to coming back in July 2019”!

“This was a beautiful home. the owners were very helpful. absolutely a wonderful stay. I would recommend this to anyone. Wallace is an amazing town. this house was beautiful”.


“We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at this wonderful and quite interesting historical home. Furnishings were very comfortable with plenty of room for our party of six. Well kept home with lots of charm and with some very interesting memorabilia. We were steps away from downtown which offered eateries, a very interesting museum depicting the silver mining industry so prevalent in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, plus a variety of antique shops. Toured the Sierra Silver Mine which was so interesting, and also did a bike ride on the nearby Hiawatha Trail…a 15 mile downhill trail going thru a number of tunnels and some trestles that offered some awesome views of the valley! The owner of the property was very accommodating and answered any of my questions within minutes. A great place to spend a few days on our way to Glacier National Park. I highly recommend it”!


“Cozy Home with all the amenities! A perfect home for a large group! The home was exactly what we hoped for. We had five ladies in the group and each one raved about their room and how comfortable they were. We very much enjoyed the porch in the am with our coffee and a glass of wine in the eve in between going to the Wallace Blues Fest. We look forward to visiting again next year”.

Robert-Phoenix, Arizona-2018

“We so enjoyed our stay at the Tabor House.  There was enough space and every detail was considered.  Our family loved the considerations of traveling with young children.

Thank you for having toys, games and the wagon available for our use.  The fenced in yard was perfect and the park down the street helped them burn out additional energy.

We loved exploring the area trails, and nothing beats walking downtown to grab a yummy bite or brew.  We hope to return in years to come”.

The McCrays (friends of Robert)-Phoenix, Arizona-2018

“We loved the Tabor house. Comfortable and clean, we highly recommend this property! Grandparents(us) on the main floor, our adult children on second, grandkids on third floor, perfect! Loved the history, front porch and proximity to everything in town. Rode the Hiawatha, Coeur d’Alene trail and everywhere in town. Beautiful stay”!


Tabor house fit our needs perfectly. We were a large party with six kiddos on the ski team. We were there for a race at Lookout. The house was spacious and we weren’t ever on top of each other. There is a newly remodeled attic with games, dress up clothes, tv, beanbag etc that was a haven for the kids after a long day of racing. The kitchen was well stocked and we were able to cook our own meals. It was great having a washer and dryer also to dry out our ski stuff for the next day. The hosts were fantastic and responded to any questions we had in a timely manner. Location was wonderful in a quiet beautiful neighborhood. We look forward to staying again next season”.

“The Tabor House was fantastic! Kinda like your favorite Granma’s house. The location was awesome. We filled this house with a group of 12, but we never felt crowded. Its a corner lot so parking was ample. Walking distance to the Center of the Universe. Scotty was the most responsive owner I have ever dealt with, and was great every time, even when I was peppering him with questions and requests. If you like 1800’s neighborhoods, this was the classiest house on the block in its heyday, and this old girl still holds her charm. I know that we are already planning next years trip. Thanks again Scotty”!

“We had a great stay. Beautiful place. Updated with comfortable furnishings, beds and kitchen. It was so warm and comfortable. Great place to gather after ski and walking distance to local pubs and eateries”.

Melissa-Spokane, Washington 2018

“We are a family of four and stayed here with some friends (a family of 5). We loved how much space we had for the kids, and they were very content to play upstairs in the attic area. There were toys, books, an air hockey table, puzzles, games, movies, etc. The front yard and back yard are fenced in which was helpful for the 2 year old. We cooked all of our meals there, and I would say the kitchen is well-supplied. The beds were also surprisingly comfortable, and it was nice to have a TV in the bedrooms in case we wanted to watch something without disturbing anyone else. We had a great time!! Very relaxing”. 

Roxy-Seattle, Washington 2018

“We loved the Tabor House! There was plenty of space for our group to gather for meals and board games, and also for our introverts to spread out and recharge 🙂 The neighborhood is filled with beautiful homes, and you’re just a short walk from downtown with shops and museums and restaurants. It was a winter wonderland, and our skiers took advantage of the great snow at Silver and at Lookout. Thanks for everything, Scotty”! 

Hailey-Moscow, Idaho 2018

“The house is comfortable, very organized, clean, spacious, beautiful neighborhood”.

Tania-Pullman, Washington 2018

“The Tabor House is quaint and comfortable! With period furniture, yet all the conveniences of home, it was a great place to reunite our family over Thanksgiving. They allow dogs and the Red Garage down the street even allows them in a certain part of the restaurant! Scotty was fantastic at recommending brew pubs and cool restaurants! We’ll be back”.

Danielle-Santa Cruz, California 2017

“This is a great house for a group. With four bedrooms everyone can have as much privacy as they want. It is clean and the kitchen is pretty well equipped if you want to cook your own meals. Lots of dishes including china and tablecloths. We were there for a biking adventure. The backyard is enclosed, providing a secure place for our gear”.

Susan-Boise, Idaho 2017

“What a cool home! There are lots of historic pictures around the house that were very interesting to look at. The house was very comfortable, exceptionally clean, and had everything we could possibly need. Very convenient access to the highway and to downtown Wallace. Everything in town was easy to walk to”.

Molly-Okinawa, Japan 2017

“Super quaint, yet modern. Front porch is amazing! Conveniently located with everything within walking distance. Literally a five minute walk to food, drinks, tourist shops, bike path, and anything else you’ll need. Owners provide bikes, helmets, kids toys, games…too much to list. Friendly neighbors, but not nosey. Gated yard for dogs. Trolley passes out front. Superb place. Can’t wait to go back”!


“A great time at Wallace Blues Festival. Perfect place to stay. Hoping to be back next year”.
