Beautiful lodge located in a remote feeling wilderness area but only 15 minutes from BYU-Campus in Rexburg. Our room looked out over BLM land and the river. The lodge's seven rooms were full but when we made it back that evening and grabbed a homemade cookie and a drink in the dining room, we almost felt like we had the place to ourselves, except for a loud family who stayed up late talking right next door and whose children were fighting in the morning, but that's not the Inn's fault. (I felt so at home I even went out to look for a movie in my pajamas=).I wish we would have had more time to explore inside and out. Super clean.
We received a complimentary $50 room upgrade (not sure why) which put us in a more rustically decorated room than I had originally chosen, but it was very nice and the view made up for it so we're not complaining. The lodge look isn't my first choice for atmosphere but it was very beautiful and tastefully done and definitely created an impressive ambiance.
There was a hot tub right under our balcony, but it was covered and I didn't ask if it was working since we didn't bring our swimsuits, but that would have been a nice perk.
This will definitely be our go-to place whenever my husband and I visit our children at college.
