Thanks for visiting. I'm Heidi Sipe and I grew up playing in this house and riding my horse and playing in the fields of this property. Some of my favorite childhood memories are of playing solitaire with my Great-Aunt Helen and following my Great-Uncle Bob around the orchards here. In 2010, my dad, Kelly, husband, Kyle, and I bought the property from our cousins. The retreat is possible thanks to help from the extended family as well- Caden, Cameron, Dane, and Tess all contribute to ensure the home and property are ready for all to enjoy. We spend as much times as possible here, laughing about old family memories and making new ones together. It's our happy place and we treasure the time we spent here.
For generations, our family has enjoyed this property and are committed to ensuring it's a place to make family memories for generations to come. Sharing our property with others allows us the opportunity to preserve this special place for our family, and yours. We have many repeat visitors who have become extended family and dear friends through the years. We love seeing multi-generational families come to stay and build new memories together. With hiking, sledding, bird watching and exploring available on site and fishing, skiing and antiquing nearby, there's plenty to do to ensure a fun trip for all.
If you are looking for a sleek, modern, place to watch tv and surf the internet- you'll be happiest elsewhere.
If you're looking for a rustic farmhouse full of room for all and with plenty of property to
explore and enjoy, you've found your place!
Our "family reunion" in Kettle Falls was greatly enhanced for those of us fortunate enough to be able to stay at Kelly & Heidi's Mingo Mountain Retreat. Our daughter found it online and contacted Kelly, then we easily completed the arrangements with Heidi. The place is so pleasant, having such a "homey" feel, with character & furnishings reminding one of "Grandma's House." Our family's visiting with each other was eased late into every night by the old-fashioned comfort that we felt. Our only regret is that it will probably be a long time before we have need to stay there again! Highly recommended for friends & family groups having use for up to 6 bedrooms.- B.W.
We just spent a restful week at Mingo Mountain. The simple charm of this old farm house looking out over the wooded valley is perfect. The walleye fishing in Lake Roosevelt is spectacular most years and this summer was no exception. Turkey's and deer abound in the hay fields around the house. A family of Red Naped Sap Suckers lives in the cherry trees next to the barn - how cool is that?
A really nice family to do business with period. Come a stranger leave a friend. Heidi and her dad Kelly will do anything to make your stay memorable. I can't wait to come back next year.- J.E.
This was one of the most relaxing, refreshing vacations I've ever had! The house was clean, quaint and fun! (lots of old games, books, antique furniture) The view from my bedroom window every morning I woke was breathtaking as the sun came streaming in through the walnut trees and across the wood floors as I slept in my antique bed. We went on a great hike through the woods, sat in the yard and watched the deer (tons of them!!), went antique and thrift store shopping (a great one is in Kettle Falls just about 10 min. away) and just generally had a great time! We can't wait to go back.- A.S.
