The setting is very good, if a bit rough. The grounds are not maintained, but I can see how that might appeal to some. When they advertise "rustic", they mean it. It is quite expensive, but also sold mostly sold out. Due, I'm sure, to the location. There is a small beach, which on the Monday we were there was... More

We sat down but ended up leaving after a drink because we just didn't see anything that looked good. It's a tiny menu. Place is great with a nice view and excellent people watching, but more selection would be really nice.

We recently attended a wedding at Redfish Lake and had the option to book a room at the venue. We selected a Lake Suite, advertised as a hotel style room, rather than a cabin. It was more expensive than we would normally pay, but thought it worth it for the convenience of not having to commute to Stanley seven miles... More

We were there for a wedding and everything about it was lovely. The food was great. The wedding staff was excellent. The setting - with the tent opened to look at the gorgeous lake and the Sawtooth mountains behind it - was exquisite. We had the buffet breakfast two mornings, had one lunch at the little beach shack, and dinner... More

What a wonderful, relaxing place and like a step back in time! We enjoyed great water sports, hiking, and relaxing in our rustic cabin with a fire burning every night - in June! I would absolutely return to this location!

My husband and I come to Redfish Lake and have ate and stayed at the lodge about a half dozen times over 10 years. It remains one of our favorite Idaho destinations. Very romantic and serene. The lake is very cold, so if you want to swim come in July. Apart from swimming, enjoy the trails, fishing, boating or just... More

The room (lake suite 21) is in desperate need of a makeover. The main bed was very squeaky, uncomfortable, and unstable. The screens were ripped (not good with all the mosquitoes) and the lights are still using 20th century fixtures and bulbs. The shower curtain was moldy and smelly. Please! The pullout bed had a blowup mattress which was nice.... More

My 15 year old Son and I stayed in the original lodge for 1 week. Boy did we stumble upon a little piece of paradise! The views from the front porch of the lodge overlooking Redfish Lake and the Sawtooth Mountains were breathtaking. Words cannot descibe the beautiful views. No cell phones, tv's or social media distractions allowed at the... More

What a hidden gem. We stayed two nights in their "hotel style" rooms as we were not smart enough to reserve a cabin earlier in the year. Our room was clean and had a refrigerator. The only downside was not coffee maker (but it then made a trip into Stanley to their Espresso stand more fun!). When we arrived after... More

The room was old but updated and clean. I was only there for one night as a photographer's crash spot so I didn't take advantage of the properties other amenities, boat dock, boat rentals, bike rental or cool old lodge with (from hearsay) excellent food. My friend and I had mentioned in joking that at one time we probably could... More
