If you've read some of the other reviews about the White Bird Summit Lodge you probably already know that it's not for everyone. However, if you enjoy the outdoors and appreciate great scenery and wildlife, this is the place for you. Yes, there are a lot of taxidermy mounts from the owner's hunting trips all over the world, but then... More

I have stayed at the lodge more than 20 times. I am impressed each time with the opportunity to really take in the environment and value the relationships I have built with the owners and the new and old friends I have there. Most special to me was the horse rides and the animal pictures I have with my then... More

I live in the area but had not visited the ranch before. I wanted to take some family members on a horseback ride and made a reservation with them. The ride was the real deal. I have been on rides at other places in the U.S. On those occassions the trails were as wide as a dirt road. Not so... More

We are a great location to base your adventure trips out of. Close to the Salmon River for Rafting , Horse back riding right out of the lodge. Hiking trails and great fishing trips all close by. It was great having you back with us again and it was wonderful for you to share the adventure with your grand kids.... More

We have been to Whitebird Summit Lodge twice now and have loved both visits. Frank and Terri are very welcoming. My husband and daughter love horseback riding - it is not the typical nose to tail slow walk through the dust on broken down nags that you find at most places. The wildlife in the area is great. Take a... More

This is not a lodge in any sense of the word. We arrived after six hours of driving, to check in at 3:15 pm, and rang and rang. (Mind, we reserved the Wisconsin room in February, 2013.) Waited for someone to answer. Just as we were ready to leave, someone ( not the proprietor) answered, and mentioned our patio room... More

I apologize for the change in rooms. We only wished you would have stated your concerns when you were at the lodge. Your review is some what misleading as you did not stay with us , you would have no idea what kind of service you would have recieved. If I would have known you would have been so concerned... More

This accommodation did not suit my standards. The room was okay just had a few spiders but most unappealing were the many animals displayed on the walls. This accommodation was part of a tour. Owners were nice. Would not stay there again.

Our bed and breakfast is filled with many taxidermy displays from all over the world. We have been very fotrunate to have traveled to many rare and exotic places. Our website shows many of these displays and we welcome our guests to ask questions and learn about the many animals and what their habitat is like and what land they... More

Frank and Terri Schmitz really have B&Bs down pat. During our entire stay, they made us feel like their house was our house. The food was outstanding, the rooms were spacious and clean, the views from the private balcony (or the group balcony) were wonderful, and Frank is a great storyteller. Frank, who doubles (triples? quadruples?) as a hunting guide,... More

My friends and I recently spent a night at the Whitebird Summit Lodge, having visited previously in 2005. We had another very enjoyable experience at this relaxing, laid back mountain retreat.

This B&B was an incredible find! It is a great get-away for couples and/or families. Terri and Frank are wonderful hosts and treat everyone like family. The breakfasts are delicious and you can also use their BBQ to fix your own dinners.
