Nestled on 160 acres of private land, Idaho Smoky Mountain Lodge is surrounded on three sides by National Forest. This large pristine area provides a buffer from other recreationists and a haven for wildlife, including deer, elk, birds of prey, even an occasional wolf.
The Lodge’s six bedrooms comfortably accommodate eight to twelve guests. A river rock fireplace dominates the great room constructed with stones from the South Fork of the Boise River which runs by the west porch. Beetle killed pine trees were harvested and milled on our property for building purposes. Our active solar systems provide power, radiant heat and hot water. Tasty pure water comes from the Lodge’s well. The oversized kitchen has proven to be the highlight of the Lodge, whether you are cooking for yourself, your friends, or being served by one of our many gourmet chefs.
This summer, the Lodge is expanding its culinary operation and giving guests another reason to enjoy the great outdoors when we unveil our custom wood-fired oven, smoker, and grill—you may never want to cook inside again!
After epic days of enjoying the great outdoors, guests can rejuvenate soaking under the stars in our wood burning hot tub; or find a comfy seat in our custom outdoor sauna, complete with cold plunge tub. If you really want to pamper yourself, arrange for a private body massage when booking stay at the Lodge.
The ever-evolving network of trails surrounding the property lends itself to additional walking, biking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. If you like the nightlife, be sure to bring a headlamp!
In the summer, the Lodge may be rented for private events—Weddings, Birthdays, Reunions, Bachelor/Bachorlette Parties, Teams, Clubs, Multiply Families, and more. The Lodge sleeps 12 guests comfortably, but we welcome you to pitch a few tents and expand your group size to a maximum of 20 people. Bedding and towels are provided for all guests staying inside the Lodge.
Cost: $1000.00 per night with a two night minimum. Please contact us if you have a special request to book only one night.
When the lodge is not booked for a private event and there’s space available during a Bike Ranch Camp, we rent rooms for $150.00 per night. Meals are available upon request with an additional surcharge. To book a room, please contact us in advance to ensure there is space available.
The ground floor houses the master bedroom and bath, cook and helpers quarters, powder room, gourmet kitchen and great room with dining and lounging facilities.
The upstairs houses four carpeted bedrooms (2 beds apiece) and two complete baths. Magnificent vistas of the Smoky Mountains abound as one sits on one of the many exterior decks.
