Anyone who wants to have the perfect vacation experience needs to visit the this Lodge. From the moment we arrived we were treated like kings by all the staff--Megan at the reception desk, Kirsten at the rustic lounge and Caroline who attended to all our dining needs as we ate one of the best meals we have ever had amongst the spectacular views all around--the setting is truly superb! We had the tremendous good fortune of having Ed Emory as our fishing guide for an all day fishing excursion the next day who is a fishing guide extraordinaire--we caught every kind of fish the Snake River had to offer--he positively is beyond description in his knowledge of the river, ability to guide you and give you your hoped for peak fishing and nature experience and just a great human being. How lucky we were to have Ed as our fishing guide--don't miss the chance to have him take you down the Snake River and fish!! Thanks to Ed (he truly is amazing) and to all the staff of the South Fork Lodge--we are already trying to figure out when we can make a return trip with Ed and another stay at the Lodge! Everything about this venue is totally first class!
