Most accommodating, this lodge places emphasize on customer service. They were receptive to every request and truly listened to your questions. The food was well presented, innovative but traditional and the portions were right. The breakfast was varied, the lunches fun. The prices for alcohol were very reasonable. We had a great time and would return for a longer stay...

Our family loved IRMR! There was something for all of us. IRMR has spectacular views, delicious food, hiking, mountain bike riding, fishing, horse back riding, relaxing, and beautiful cabins! Comfortable beds, clean crisp sheets and chic newly renovated bathrooms. Very deluxe accomodations for a ranch. The BEST ever! In addition to all of the activities offered, I had a wonderful...

A truly incredible location and accomodations. The views are awesome, the food truly incredibly delicious, and the staff extremely dedicated to providing a wonderful experience. My husband and I stayed for four days in late July and enjoyed the fly fishing, which was excellent, on the ranch section of the middle fork of the Salmon River. The natural hot springs...

Spectacular views, deluxe accommodations, beyond delicious food. Plus there is so much to do. For the active family there is mountain biking (bikes and helmets on site), hiking (expert trail recommendations and access to a guide), horseback riding (also on site), white water rafting nearby - plus much more. For the mellow vacationer it is relaxing to sit on the...

My husband and I stayed at IRMR for 5 days in late July, our third visit in 10 years. The staff is as outgoing and helpful as ever, the cabins are comfortable and homey, and the food is stellar. My husband and I enjoy outdoor activities, and every day the staff would recommend specific hikes or mountain bike trails. In...

A group of six of us stayed at IRMR in late August. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating, and the food was excellent; very good value. We relaxed and unplugged very quickly. It was great fun to talk to other guests over meals, and we especially enjoyed the evening activities such as the wine chats on the front...

We had an amazing stay at IRMR. The staff was wonderful, view from the porch stunning and the food amazing. We have been several places in the rockies and think that the view of the Sawtooths in Idaho is some of the most beautiful we have seen. The ranch has a friendly and inviting atmosphere, so does the many repeating...

My favorite resort experience in my lifetime. This place is a national treasure. Two nights during our cross country drive vacation was simply not enough. Stay for at least three nights in a cabin, with your own fireplace, and drift to sleep in the luxurious bed. During the day there is a plethora of activities from biking to horseback riding,...

We are from San Jose, CA. We planned a trip to Idaho for 5 days. Pros: We got a cabin, most cabins are attached to another one. It had nice comfortable beds, a fireplace, upgraded bathroom. They have meals included in the room price which can be a good thing. The breakfast option was the best as we could order...

Sitting on the front porch of the Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch, sipping wine, listening to a terrific guitarist, and - most important of all - staring at the Sawtooth Mountains cannot be replicated anywhere in the West. It's a unique and satisfying place to stay. The view alone is worth the price. I note some reviewers balk at the price,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The living history of the Old West mingles with the solitude and peace of this 1000-acre ranch, offering freedom, breathtaking natural beauty, and a relaxed atmosphere. Surrounded by the largest protected wilderness area in the "lower 48", guests will enjoy full days of outdoor adventures, our authentic lodge and cabins, delicious meals, rejuvenating natural hot springs pool, and plenty of relaxation time. The atmosphere is friendly and casual, and the view from the front porch –well, you just have to experience that for yourself.This 50-person guest ranch is an ideal homebase to enjoy one of America’s most majestic natural treasures, --- The Sawtooth National Recreation Area. The Sawtooth Mountains are an outdoor enthusiast’s wonderland, with miles of hiking and biking trails, scenic western horseback riding, and countless opportunities for fishing, rafting and exploring the pristine Salmon River.The Ranch property originally was part of Stanley Basin pioneer Dave Williams’ homestead. It was acquired in 1929 by New York Frigidaire executive Winston Paul, who began building the Idaho Rocky Mountain Club. A crew of 60 men, among them a blacksmith and stonemason, camped on the Ranch property in the fall of 1929 until they were forced to leave by severe winter weather. Construction began with the snaking of logs up Williams and Gold Creek to the Big Meadow chosen as the Lodge site. The crews returned the following spring to complete construction, and the Idaho Rocky Mountain Club opened that summer as an invitation-only guest facility.A hydroelectric plant, whose log structure housing still stands at the willowed bend in the pond, generated power for the IRMC providing the first electricity in the Sawtooth Valley. Several of the original power gauges can also still be found around the Ranch. ... more   less
