The High Country Inn is only minutes from Idaho's Highway 12. The drive along Idaho's Clearwater River Valley from Orofino, Idaho through Ahsahka brings you into the world of a rustic, yet elegant, Pacific Northwest bed and breakfast - the perfect mountain retreat! The luxurious cabins are furnished with hand-made lodgepole beds, chests, tables and chairs, hand-quilted coverlets, and plush robes for ultimate comfort. The porches feature comfortable rockers and gliders, where you can sit enjoying a cup of coffee early in the morning, or a glass of wine in the evening, listening to the sounds of nature.. Our guests tell us that the beds are the most comfortable they have ever had, and the "quiet" is unbelievable!

My wife and I spent last weekend (end of September 2020) at the High Country Inn to celebrate her birthday! It was a wonderful stay! We booked two nights in the Black Bear Den, one of the two rooms in the Wilderness Cabin and found it to be super clean and very comfortable. The lodge decor furniture was very substantial (high quality) and attractive. The cabin's porch was a nice place to sit and enjoy a couple glasses of wine and appreciate the peace and quiet of the location. We explored the hills above Orofino and, at the owner's suggestion, made the drive upstream along the Clearwater and the Lochsa. What gorgeous country! Jo Moore, the owner, is a delightful woman and we so loved chatting with her over the delicious breakfasts she provided each morning. We were truly impressed with her intellect and kindness, and appreciated how she made us feel welcome. When we left, I was frustrated with this darned Covid pandemic because I just felt like giving her a hug. This was our first stay at the High Country Inn but it will definitely not be our last! In fact, the large cabin sleeps nine people and we are thinking this would be the perfect place for a large family gathering.

Thanks so much, my new friends, for your kind words! As I told you both, my feeding people and making new friends is my ministry, and your thoughts show me that perhaps I am on the right path. I certainly hope you will be able to return and see us again! May Covid disappear soon!!

I've stayed at High Country many times since my honeymoon and I always feel like I'm visiting family. No matter if I'm playing pool, sitting in the hot tub, throwing horse shoes or enjoying fantastic meals at the lodge, they always make sure we're comfortable and happy. Close to the lake, town and the Clearwater river. This is my favorite getaway of the year.

Jo met us after dark to help us get to our cabin. An added amenity was the free breakfast. Jo is an excellent cook. Her cinnamon rolls were to die for. All her meals were excellent. The cabin was spotless and very clean. Having a fire pit and horseshoe pit was a added feature. The game room had a great pool table and electronic darts. Sunrise and sunset from the deck was beautiful. Jo was very knowledgeable about the area, for fishing, boating , trails etc.. You couldn’t have asked for a more perfect place to stay!!!

We stayed for 3 days while we were fishing at Dworshak Reservoir and our stay here was spectacular. We had a gourmet breakfast provided each morning and Grandma Jo fixed a superb pork loin dinner on Saturday night with all the homemade fixing. If you are looking for a great experience with your family I would highly recommend staying at The High Country Inn.

We spent 4 days at the high country inn while steelhead fishing the clearwater. Jo the owner was the most accommodating and provided the best hospitality we've had in a long time! The cabin was warm, very clean, and nice. All the handmade furniture made the experience even more relaxing after a long day of fishing. There is a game room with pool table and lots of games. There are outside activities, camp fire, horseshoe games and hot tub. The views from the cabin were beautiful and serene. We are looking to go back every year for our annual fish trip and will be staying here. 5 Stars for sure!
