High above the famous White Bird battle field where the U.S. Army chased the Nez Perce tribe, led by Chief Joseph, is a place for solitude and reflection. The owners, Terri and Frank, are full of information about the area in north central Idaho and their amazing display of hunting trophies all have a grand story about adventure all over... More

The room was nothing special, but the location was unbeatable. If you walked down the road a little bit, you had an amazing view of Hell's Canyon. There are a bunch of farm animals on the property which we really enjoyed watching as well. Breakfast was excellent and just what we needed before heading down to our jet boat trip!... More

Marge, Thank you for your stay with us here at Whitebird Summit. We do have an awesome location here being close to the Snake and Salmon rivers.

My wife and I stayed three nights at the White Bird Summit Lodge. Frank and Terri were both great conversationalists. Terri made us feel welcomed, and we enjoyed her coffee, fresh fruit and hot breakfasts. They have horses, goats, chickens, swans, turkeys, ducks, geese, and other birds and animals. They have 4 cats, we only saw two. And two dogs.... More

While this lodge is technically a bed and breakfast, it is not your typical East Coast lace curtain B&B. Frank and Terri are globe-trotting big game hunters and retired hunting outfitters, as the dozens of exotic game heads on the wall and beautifully stuffed and displayed animals in the main lodge area demonstrate. They are also outstanding hosts who transcend... More

We stayed here because it was close to our launch site for a rafting trip. We arrived after dark and found it a little difficult to find, it would be good to put some signage on the road. We had a GPS that saved us. The lodge is rustic and has LOTS of taxidermy of animals from all over the... More

Our family had a very pleasant stay here a week or so ago. We had gone rafting and our truck broke down right as we reached White Bird (Hoots did a fabulous job repairing it).

If you've read some of the other reviews about the White Bird Summit Lodge you probably already know that it's not for everyone. However, if you enjoy the outdoors and appreciate great scenery and wildlife, this is the place for you.
