Mary Alice's Painted Sacred Tipi is absolutely magical. The experience of sleeping on the ground next to the warm fire and looking up as the smoke rises to the sky is incredible. I felt close to the elements (it was winter when I came and cold outside), yet warm and cozy at the same time.

The tipi is located on a 2-acre property with a beautiful and large garden. The tipi is surrounded by trees (though they are dormant when we were there, so lots of sun shined on the tipi). Mary Alice says it's even better in the summer when the flowers bloom. If I can, I definitely want to come back.

The property is also very conveniently located close to the center of a cute historic town. The park where the Chataqua Festival and farmer's market are held is just a few steps away. There's also a picnic bench and creek by the park.

And then there's scenic drives of beautiful farm lands and mountains. We enjoyed hiking at the Colville National Forest and having coffee and fresh fruits at Crandall Coffee Co. & Riverview Orchard. We also made a drive to the Keller Heritage Park & Historical Museum in Colville. It’s fascinating to learn about the history of this area, which was once an ancient and important fishing site for Native Americans. The museum had incredible photos of Native Americans fishing at Kettle Falls in canoes!

The fire pit inside the tipi was very useful for keeping warm and dry as well as cooking. The white fluffy stuff around the fire pit is snow that fell from the air vent at the top (which also lets smoke out) The inside of the tipi is painted with four shields, each corresponding to one of the four directions as well as the four seasons. They also represent parts of our human nature. Each is necessary and important to wholeness and well-being.Here's the tipi near sunset.The tipi sits in a large garden with many trees.

All of our expectations were met and then exceeded. The tent was gorgeous, the fire pit completely set up so that the fire was a breeze, and Mary's home and garden is like something straight out of a Jude Devereaux romance novel- lush, verdant, and peaceful.

I came with my daughter so we were thrilled to find that the space was less than a five minute walk from the local park and an adorable stream with bits shallow enough to wade in. Had I known how perfect everything would turn out to be we would have stayed for way more than one night; now we know, and we will definitely be back!!

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!

Mary Alice had lit a fire in the tipi fire ring before we arrived, very nice! The space accommodated four of us quite well. She directed us to use the bathrooms across the street at the public park, which surprised me because we expected hot water and probably showers to be available based upon the site's amenities as listed.
