Are you headed to a celebration at the Farmhouse from out of town? Not sure where to stay? Here’s a quick guide to point you in the right direction…
A Spokane experience
For those that want to enjoy a full weekend in Spokane, there’s no better place to stay than the Davenport. While there are a few to choose from, we’d recommend the historic Davenport for their jaw dropping lobby or the Davenport Grand for the proximity to Riverfront Park.
Both options will put you within walking distance of Spokane’s great restaurants, shopping and the amazing Spokane Falls. If you are looking for tips on where to eat and what to see while you are here, check out Spokane Eats and Spokane Playground.
If you are driving to the Spokane area, chances are you are taking I-90. Green Bluff can be accessed from a few different exits off of I-90, but the most direct would be the Argonne exit. At this exit, you will find a few hotels in the area. We recommend the Fairfield Inn & Suites (about 13 miles away). Tru by Hilton is another hotel close to I-90, that is about 15 miles away from Green Bluff.
The great part about staying in Spokane Valley is that your drive up to Green Bluff will take you through the Peone Prairie. These rolling hay fields are a beautiful sight and full of Spokane history.
Because Green Bluff is in a unique agricultural area of Spokane County, some of the farms open up their property to campers. Hidden Acres is a 4th generation farm that allows guests to book a night in their orchard. They are located about 3.5 miles from the Farmhouse and are just across the road from Big Barn Brewing Co. – a must stop for any Green Bluff trip. Use Hip Camp or TentRR to find a cool spot. If you are bringing in an RV, there is an RV park located just off the Bluff (Alderwood RV Express).
No matter where you choose to stay, please keep in mind that Green Bluff is Spokane’s premier destination in the fall. From about mid-September through the end of October, the residents flock to Green Bluff for pumpkins, donuts, hay rides and apple picking. It is a festival spread out between approximately 60 farms on Green Bluff and is a “must” for those seeking the best fall experience. The downside with this comes traffic.
If you are attending a wedding in the fall, you should plan to give yourself some extra time for the drive. When you come to the Green Bluff sign, you’ll be given the option to take an East or West Loop. The West Loop will have significantly less traffic and is a much quicker drive to the Farmhouse.
