Walking Distance to town from hotel?

We will be staying at the Mountain Village Resort before our rafting trip. We do not have a car. Is it possible to walk into town from the Mountain Village Resort?

Thanks for such a quick response. We will be coming in from Boise via McCall Aviation. How far is the airport in Stanley from the main part of town? Are there cabs or shuttles?

well, i am sure that you can arrange that at the airport, or i could call for you. it is just down the hill and across the street. depends on the luggage. can you ask mcall aviation? if it were me, i would walk.

i would call the place where you are staying and ask them to pick you up. it is s very, very , very small town, and the folks there are so nice. it would be no problem, i am sure. and the walk, nothing. you can see the hotel from the airport, so you won't get lost!!

ps don't forget dinner at the sawtooth hotel, and the stanley bakery for breakfast and lunch. they are owned by the same young people, that are so nice. they refurbished the old hotel, and the views are to kill for. it was hard to find decent food in stanley, and they have hit home runs with there food. we drive 1 hour just to go for breakfast and dinner, stanley is our fave place. have fun.

you can arrange a pick up through the mtn village. There are not any cabs in Stanley and few shuttle services. Once at the MV hotel everything is an easy walk without any elevation gain. The Bakery and the Hotel are great. Make sure to check out Peaks and Perks for a quick cup of coffee and riverwear for any last minute equipment. Enjoy the Rio!
