“Good location but disappointing cabin”
Reviewed 17 January 2012

The location is superb, against the river bank, 5 yards, with a stunning vista of the Sawtooth Mountains. But the cabin itself was very small for the price. there was very little storage space for clothes, and the kitchen area was very cramped. The bathroom was unbelievably small.

The cabin needed lot of renovation and work, but the location made up for any disapointments.

Reviewed 8 September 2009

My husband and I have stayed here three times in the last 10 years. Each time we have stayed in an upstairs room in the motel. The rooms are spacious, clean and simple with a kitchenette and 2 queen beds. The furnishings are dated but clean.

What we come for are the views off the back porch. I just love gazing at the river with the Sawtooth Mountains in the background. There is a large pasture with cattle grazing across the river. You can watch the osprey and the fisherman tryinging to catch dinner. It is so peaceful here.

We have always found the owners to be friendly and have never had any issues with the rooms. They also run Jerry's Country store so you have to talk to them between customers.

You won't get anything fancy. But the views are fantastic. I have never stayed in the cabins since we like the motel views so much. (When we first stayed here they just had the motel. They bought the cabins later.)

The very friendly owners give a warm welcome to you. The stay in a log cabin is rather simple, but that's intended, as well as the absence of any room service during your stay. For us it was a great experience - our first time - to stay in such a log cabin. But there was plenty of room, even with a seperated sleeping room. The cabins are located directly at the Salmon river with some phantastic views.
Our only problem was the cooking place which hadn't been cleaned up before so that we couldn't use it properly. But the owners were open for the critic and gave us a discount.

This was my husband's favorite place we stayed at on our recent two week Idaho road trip. The rooms were clean and spacious and had a kitchenette. The furnishings are simple and somewhat older, but the location can not be beat. We had a second story room which opened up to the back balcony (shared by all) where chairs were set up and where you can sit right on the Salmon River. It was wonderful, to sit and sip a glass of wine and view the river with the Sawtooth Mountains in the background. Absolutely gorgeous. I would love to go back.
