Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch Flexible Approach

Planning Your Visit

Schedule your vacation when it’s best for you, arriving and departing any day of the week, stay 3 nights or all summer, choose activities prior to or after your arrival, and create custom day adventures with our staff’s assistance.


This is a ranch for independent folks. Almost any outdoor activity you want is readily available, usually without the summer throngs. Take your pick: mountain climbing, kayaking, fishing, sailing, trail riding, swimming, white-water rafting, sailboarding, waterskiing on two of five lakes.” ~ LA Times

Western Adventures – Hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, fishing, rafting, and climbing – are available for all ability levels, at accommodating times. Whether you’re a beginning explorer or skilled adventurer, would like a short, slow-paced scenic walk or a long and challenging mountain scramble, to ride horses for an hour and a half or all day, to casually cast a line in the Ranch’s pond or Salmon River, or spend the day fly fishing with a guide, we’ll arrange the experience you seek.


And with breakfast served from 7-10am, a take-away picnic lunch (on homemade bread, no less), fruit and bags of trail mix always out, and dinners served over a two-hour period, you’re free to dine and savor your meals, not schedule around them.

Leisure Time

Relaxation opportunities also abound, to be enjoyed on your timetable. At any hour, no scheduling required, soak in our natural hot springs pool, take in the incomparable Sawtooth Mountain view from our iconic front porch, enjoy a lemonade or cold beer in an Old Hickory rocker, play some Ping-Pong, grab a mountain bike and take it for a whirl around Williams Creek short loop, book a massage, or have games and good old-fashioned conversation with friends and family.
