My wife, children and I stayed for 3 nights during a corporate retreat. Overall the trip was great. Friendly staff. It is remote, which adds to its beauty, but if multiple parties are coming from different directions, there is quite a bit of driving after arriving at airports (closest is 2 hours plus). Fly fishing was good, as was the gentle (2/5 difficulty) river rafting. There is plenty of outdoor activities, but limited in children focused things. Its suited best for the very young child (infant) or early to late teen (self-sufficient). There was a very tasty Mediterranean menu. Despite being Idaho there wasn't an American steak or baked potatoe on the menu. We all ate great meals however. The biggest improvement that is needed if you are going on business or need to keep in touch is decent internet connectivity. There is only one older computer in the diner. Wireless is limited to about 100 feet from the diner so you can't access it from your cabins. The setting is nice, right across from the river, but also all cabins are just a few yards from the main road, so there is some road noise. The cabins are newer and well appointed, the landscaping has been started, but needs to be completed. Overall its a good 7 of 10, and a perfect overnight stop.
