Top 10 North Idaho Airbnb's For Your Elopement

North Idaho is a region of breathtaking beauty and abundant outdoor recreation. With its majestic mountains, dense forests, and crystal-clear lakes, North Idaho is a paradise for eloping couples, and nature lovers alike. Its landscape provides an abundance of opportunities for exploration and adventure, especially if you're looking for some amazing places to say I do! Within these amazing places lies some incredible Airbnb's and rentals that you can rent for your elopement to incorporate into your adventure.


If you're looking to rent some amazing Airbnb's for your elopement in North Idaho, I have found the top 10 North Idaho Airbnb's for your elopement that would be great for amazing photos and an unforgettable elopement experience here in the Northern Idaho Panhandle.


Things to Look for When Renting an Airbnb for Your Elopement:

  • Nice big windows

  • Neat wall space

  • Provides needed amenities for your activities

  • Consider its proximity to the day's activities (drive time)

  • A getting ready space

  • A nice kitchen if you wanted to make food

  • Seeing if it can accommodate the amount of guests & vendors present

  • Making sure it can provide a ceremony space/act as a backup location (if host allows)


Along with the main things above, the main thing I looked for when researching the best rentals was imagining how it would look in photos. Having a nice open space, lots of window light, and imagining the main photos I usually take for elopements helped me to see if the space would work well. I kept all of these things in mind while finding these 10 rentals, so they are photographer approved as well! Things like these make all the difference in photos!



This Crystal Peak Lookout has to be one of the coolest Airbnb's in North Idaho! Who wouldn't want to rent a private lookout tower and have it all to yourselves? You could wake up, get ready together with pine trees outside your windows, make fresh hot coffee, and take adventurous lookout tower bridals. Located in Fernwood Idaho, this lookout tower is available year round (a snowcat brings you up in the wintertime), complete with a wood fired sauna and 13 acres for exploring! Plus, it's pet friendly! This is a perfect addition to any adventurous elopement.


Why I Love this Property for Elopements:

  • Rentable year round

  • Amazing views and window light

  • Privacy

  • Pet friendly

Okay when I saw that there was a literal castle available to rent on Schweitzer Mountain, I immediately added it to my list! How cool is this medieval looking castle nestled in the mountains?

You look out the windows and you can see the tops of the trees, making it also feel like you're in a treehouse.

When looking for Airbnb's, I also really wanted to make sure there was a neat variety of places you could rent. I think yurts are great for elopements! Imagine your wedding dress hanging on the front door with all the beautiful trees in the background!

The forest area is a great spot for a first look/bridals, and from here you could head off on your elopement adventure!

I just recently photographed an elopement here and after doing so, I thought it would be a great one to include, especially because I have image examples!
