The setting can't be beat, we loved being right on the water. The cabins are secluded and you really feel like you have gotten away. The accommodations were absolutely wonderful, with attention to every details. Everything in our cabin was new or updated. Can't wait to go back! I'm sure we will be visiting again.

My wife and I had booked this trip three years ago and as life would have it we couldn't make it happen. Robert and Jeanie just said make it when you can. normally when you cancel a reservation that is nonrefundable. That's it. Not here they kept our deposit but applied it to our new reservations. These are truly wonderful... More

An easy 6 hour drive from the Tri-Cities, WA, which included stopping to eat in CDA and a brief stop at a grocery store in Sandpoint to pick up a few perishables before continuing on to the cabin.

My husband and I took off on a vacation with no destination in mind and happened to come across this wonderful place. Robert and Jeanie had cabin #2 available for 3 nights so we booked. Due to unavoidable circumstances, the people in cabin #1 had to cancel and we took their place for 5 wonderful days. WOW! WOW and WOW!!!... More

As a vacation destination for our nature-loving family, this place was captivating! We enjoyed hiking, canoeing & paddle boarding to Bull Lake, s'mores by the fire, star gazing and critter watching, all accompanied by amazing mountain views. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with a spacious, immaculate cabin, containing every amenity and heavenly homemade jam to boot! The pristine surroundings... More

Our vacation to Montana was amazing! Our cabin was comfortable, quiet, and the view was awesome! We saw many critters during our stay, and loved fishing in the crystal clear water! Robert and Jeanie let us use their canoe and had kayaks available. I would love to return to this beautiful Montana getaway! Melanie Hammer Kansas

KRO provided outstanding service, equipment, transportation, and an awesome drone video of the beginning of our river expedition that we will treasure forever.
