Ken was so humble in his description of his lodge prior to our arrival. This place is so perfect!! Its roomy, spotless and so welcoming. This place is paradise!! We pulled in to welcome arms...awesome rooms...20 feet off the river! The hospitality second to none! Lords of Louie will be back!

This is one of those places that I'm ambivalent about giving a wonderful review - but only because I want to keep it to myself! This is our second visit here and we loved it as much as last year. It sits right at the junction of the Salmon River & the North Fork River. We love sitting on the... More

Very comfortable and well appointed rooms in this lodge. Ken immediately made me feel very welcome. My end room was spacious, bright, had a table with three chairs, refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave, and a lovely back deck overlooking the river. All rooms are by the river. Very good in-room WIFI. There is a boat launch and swimming access to... More

A great riverside room enabled us to watch elk, deer, and various birds on the river in both the morning and evening. Room was large and clean and everything appeared well kept. Sitting on the porch watching the river go by and the animals forage was just great. Only downside is the area does not have anyplace to eat. A... More

We book here occasionally to just get away. The Salmon River is literally ten feet behind the back doors of the ground-floor rooms. We enjoy just sitting on the back porch listening to the river and watching the river wildlife. Nights, turn everything off, open the back windows, and sleep to the sounds of the river flowing by. In essence,... More

We just had our second stay at River's Fork Lodge. The last time was 5 years ago. We were thrilled with all the updates and changes they have made! We got there after 5pm and upon checking in they gave us a cooler full of dinner for everyone in our family. Our dinner came with burgers with all the fixings.... More

This was truly a great experience. The host was the best at making sure our stay for 2 nights was perfect for 2 couples on bikes. The rooms are spacious and had a great view (and sounds) of the Salmon River. It was super hot so it was perfect that he has chairs you can slide into the water and... More

This lodge is incredible. The rooms are located right on the Salmon River. We enjoyed seeing elk come down in the evenings to graze and drink. Many different species of birds every day. Yes, the lodge is just off a highway but it is not a very busy highway and you hear no road noise at all - only the... More

You could not find a better location and a view from your back porch. The Lodge is really 10 feet from the Salmon River. The rooms are large and the furniture looked new. Beds are comfortable. Ken is a likeable host and tries to make you feel welcome. On the downside, the rooms do not have any storage space, such... More

This lodge is in such a beautiful spot. It is just off the highway, but it's not a very busy highway so there are not really any noise concerns from the highway. The owners are so nice, friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean. The lodge is kind of old, and you can hear people above if you are on... More
