Nestled into the mountains on expansive grounds, this place is worth a week at least. You can ride horses or mountain bikes. Make sure you go into the mineral pool...heaven! My cabin was down from the main building where you get coffee at all times and breakfast, which is extra. The staff are very welcoming and it feels like you... More

My husband and I just returned home after an amazing week at the IRMR (Aug. 24 - Aug. 30th), and neither of us were ready to leave! IRMR is an amazing experience and we can't wait to start planning our next trip. Our stay was so amazing thanks to the comfort, beauty, a great staff and fun activities @ IRMR.... More

Last week my wife, myself and twin 12 year olds spent 5 nights at the ranch. On our last night we were all in full agreement, we needed at least 3 more days!!! We hiked, rode horses, went fly fishing, swam, ate fabulous food and met some of the nicest people you can imagine. Professional couples and some wonderful families.... More

We stayed here for four nights last week and had a fantastic stay. From the moment we checked-in to the moment we departed we felt as though everything was done for us (except the hiking!) The staff could not have been more friendly or more helpful and the facilities were second to none. The food was a huge highlight, delicious... More

They say you'll encounter more sheep than people in New Zealand. A similar experience awaits in remote northern Idaho, where horses, deer, livestock and various other smaller critters, appear to dominate the vast landscape. But thanks to the Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch, there is a comfortable place to recover after a day of having your breath taken away (literally, if... More

I did a ton of research on guest ranches all across Montana, Idaho, Colorodo and Wyoming (including one in California) and chose IRMR as I was looking for the perfect mix of some luxury, healthy, wholesome food, with an authentic ranch environment. We stayed 8 nights at Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch in June and have already looked at dates for... More

Absolutely beautiful spot in the middle of the mountains. Quiet, peaceful, gorgeous views, very kind gracious staff. Delicious food. We were there for the cookout night on Mondays and it was fabulous and so much fun! My 2 year old LOVED taking the horse drawn carriage to and from dinner. And the musician who played during dinner. The cabins are... More

My wife and I returned from Australia to Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch in September this year for our second stay at this accommodation. The range of activities, standard of accommodation, friendliness and competence of the staff, quality of the meals and location are outstanding. Two stays at IRMR is not enough, we plan to return in summer 2013.

If you want to get away from it all, head to the Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch. Located on 900 acres a few miles south of Stanley, ID, and just off of Hwy 75, it consists of an 'upper' ranch where the lodge, cabins and fishing pond are, and a 'lower' ranch (on the other side of the road) where the...

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
