The Resort offers skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, and snowshoeing during the winter months. Once summer arrives try mountain biking in the region's best bike park, go for a scenic gondola ride, hike to the fire lookout on Kellogg Peak, or just settle in for huckleberry ribs and live music at the Mountain House Grill.  How about a round of golf at Galena Ridge, or grab some pavement bikes from Silver Mountain Sports and hit the 72 mile Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes bike path.

Top 5 Things to Do in and Around Silver Mountain: 
-Ride or run the Trail of the Coeur D'alenes, a 72 mile paved scenic bike path that follows the beautiful CDA river .  
-Fly fishing on the Coeur D'alene river. The majestic North Fork is just 10 minutes away and provides easy access to world class fly fishing.
-Ride the Trail of the Hiawatha, one of the most scenic bike paths in the U.S.  This re-purposed gravel trail goes over old railroad trestles and through some amazing tunnels, the longest of which is almost two miles.  This is a must do.
-Mine Tours are a fun and interactive way to explore the rich heritage of the "Silver Valley".  Go under ground and get a behind the scenes look at what is happening right under your feet.
-Micro Brew for you! Wallace, just 10 minutes down the road, is home to two microbreweries! Always worth a visit to The City Limits or Wallace Brewing.
Let American Country Bed and Breakfast be your home base in the beautiful countryside of Coeur d’Alene and then take the short drive to Kellogg. Make it a day of winter or summer adventure! 
Things to Consider:
1. Check the road reports especially if you plan to travel to Wallace in winter. You will want to know what the driving conditions will be so there won't be any surprises.
2. Wear layers whether you visit in the Winter or Summer. Taking the mine tour or riding the Hiawatha can get a bit chilly even in the Summer. 
3.  Be prepared to be spontaneous. Once you make the trip to the Silver Valley you may discover things to do that we haven't even mentioned.
