We stayed August 25th. A truly beautiful setting along the south fork of the Snake river. We had the lodge to ourselves and enjoyed the hot tub and night sky! The Mallard room was our choice and were really good accommodations, could use a firmer mattress. Breakfast was a flawless presentation with stuffed French toast.

My family only stayed one night, but the place was a perfect stop on our journey to Yellowstone and a family wedding. Drove up from Salt Lake City and arrived late, but they had my key on the front door and the rooms were spotless and very nice. Breakfast the next morning was excellent and everyone was so friendly and accommodating. Got to see a few deer, but no moose that morning. The owners made a suggestion to visit Mesa Falls on our way up since we had a little time and it was great stop and just a little out of our way. Would definitely stay here again!!!

We only chose this B&B because we had an early flight our of Idaho Falls the next morning and wanted something close to the airport but outside of IF...I'm so glad we did! The lodge is just beautiful. The great room overlooking the river had cathedral ceilings and matching windows. It's a beautiful room with a fireplace, sumptuous seating and beautifully furnished, as is every part of this lodge. Our large bedroom had a veranda overlooking the river and was also beautifully decorated and had a walk-in closet! The breakfast room is also a lovely, light, airy room with coffee, tea, popcorn etc. to help yourself during the day or evening. Breakfast is a treat there. Dennis made us a delicious and beautifully presented meal. There is another delightful area upstairs with a library space, a seating area and a games area. All very inviting and tastefully decorated. I would come here just for a weekend to sit and watch the river, relax and unwind...it's that lovely! We didn't meet Sandra as we got in late and left early but she was very nice on the phone. The lodge is very close to a photo worthy old iron railway bridge and we saw fisherman catching trout beneath the bridge. In the morning we saw a moose come down to the river to drink and we saw a bald eagle waiting on a log by the river to catch fish! The lodge is only 20 minutes from Idaho Falls on the freeway. I would highly recommend this B&B for a relaxing stay with a beautiful view, an elegant and thoughtfully decorated lodge and rooms and close proximity to Idaho Falls or the I15 north to Yellowstone and Montana.

This B&B is outstanding. The hosts are wonderful. The coffee and breakfast are wonderful and the setting on the Snake River is beautiful. This is a short drive off the I-15 so easily manageable, e.g., for snowbirds passing through.
