Reviewed 4 August 2008

The website for this place is attractive for those who think they are going to have a rustic cabin in a nice piece of Idaho mountain wilderness.
We got to the gravel road (6 miles of it) that leads to the lodge area, checked in, and was assigned our rustic cabin. We were unable to pay as they requested because the power had just gone out. This was supposedly due to a great abundance of RVs who were also camped on the property and were told not to use the electricity. Somebody apparently did, and it blew out the whole site's. We came back later for basically the only thing on the menu at the "lodge," which was spareribs. Well, they were so tough you couldn't cut them (and for the grand price of $18.95). The cabin we had had linoleum flooring, there was junk lying all over the grassy areas where the cabins were (junk that could have been gotten rid of), and the general sight was just plain junky. They finally got the electricity up and running, only to have it go out again later in the evening - and it never came on in the morning before we left either. It was apparently connected somehow to the water supply, so we had no water as well. No water even to brush our teeth with. This was the scrappiest place and most disappointing place we'd ever stayed at (we had previously just stayed at a rough and primitive "tent camp" around Clark Fork, Idaho, and it was luxury compared to this place).
We were supposed to stay there three nights; when we had no water in the morning and no electricity, we left (we had paid for 3 nights) and never came back, forfeiting our second two nights. It was that bad and undesirable. Never again!
