Walk on the Wild Side Bed and Breakfast combines the atmosphere of staying in a 1930's Idaho ranch house with all of today's modern conveniences. "Wild Side" is located in picturesque Garden Valley, Idaho, just ...More an hour and a half from downtown Boise. Originally known as the Beck Ranch House, "Wild Side" sits on five acres with frontage on the Middle Fork of the Payette River. Our unique location affords our guests the opportunity to observe many of Idaho's diverse wildlife from the comfort of their private bedrooms or while sitting in our living room. We also have a riverside meditation/yoga/wildlife viewing platform. Wild elk and deer wander our property to graze. Across the river you can watch herds of elk belonging to Elk Springs Ranch. Geese and ducks are abundant along the river in addition to bald eagles, hawks, quail and numerous other bird species. Throw in the occasional coyote, fox, porcupine or otter and you can truly "walk on the wild side." Our Guest rooms The Arabian Nights Suite: Our 900 sq. ft. second floor suite features a king-size tempurpedic bed, large Jacuzzi whirlpool spa and adjacent "His & Hers" walk-in shower with a view of the river, mountainside and wildlife. The next best thing to "skinny dipping" in the forest! Private balcony. Pricing:$190/night with a two night minimum or $215 for one night. The Shadow Room: First floor room featuring antique furniture from the French Quarter in New Orleans. Queen-size bed and Jacuzzi whirlpool spa for two with mountain view. Private bath. Pricing: $150/night. The Call of the Wild Room: First floor room that's handicap accessible with queen-size bed, antique furniture and adjacent full bathroom. Pricing: $130/night. We look forward to welcoming you. Martha Less

We loved this place! Martha and Bill are fantastic innkeepers and Jan's breakfasts were out of this world! Loved watching the red winged blackbirds, quail, and elk from the back patio. Extremely comfortable rooms and relaxed atmosphere. Bill is a great storyteller!More
