“Whitebird Summit Lodge Grangeville Idaho”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2008

I would like to share my several experiences at Whitebird Summit Lodge. Owners Frank and Terri Schmidts have a wonderful facility that is great for families or adventurers wanting to get off the beaten path. They offer a huge variety of wilderness adventures from horseback riding to whitewater rafting on the Salmon, Snake and Clearwater Rivers. They have great hunting camps and are rated as one of the top places to get a huge elk in the lower 48. I have take several trips with them and stayed at thier lodge only to find the experience 5 star for a wilderness and lodge type of adventure. The food is great, the accommodations are from a nicely appointed lodge to drop camp hunts. If you are looking for the true experience in the wild consider this as your choice. I have referred other hunters, fishermen and horseback riders and all have stated the stay was delightful. All in all you will come as a client and leave as a friend.

I have read/heard stories about places like this...never thought I would actually experience something like this in my lifetime. The drive to Whitebird Summit took a little while but that was because we were stopping every 5 minutes to take pictures. It brought new meaning to the song "America the Beautiful". My boyfriend likes to hunt and he did quite a bit of that with Frank as his guide...but I stayed by the fire..read books...did some yoga in my room....went horseback riding and slept in.

The B and B is very clean (being barefoot in the bathroom did not make me cringe like it does in hotels). The food is the stuff your mom made you (my mom was an excellent cook) and if you are truly lucky you will get to have your favorite drink by the fire with Frank and Terri (owners of the place) and listen to some of their stories and the things they have done in their lifetime. No need for television or dvd's. We actually brought a portable dvd player...it never came out of the bag.

We will be back for our honeymoon!

The food , accomodations ,and the guides dedication were the best I ever encountered in numerous trips Elk hunting out west.
I also went there for a vacation with my wife and we were never so impressed with the support they give you to enjoy yourself.

Stayed October 2007

This place is great!!! My Dad, brother, and I came to the Whitebird Summit B and B in the begining of November and we had such a good time. I have been there twice and both experiences were perfect. It is very relaxing and there are so many things to do. We have gone whitewater rafting, horseback riding, and hunting out of this location. Can't wait till I can go again.

We booked our first trip to Idaho in hopes for some family adventrue. What an experience we recieved. The lodge atmosphere is perfect with all the extra amenities with feather beds, down comforters, heated towel racks, private patios, fireplaces, and much more. The guest ranch has lots of ranch animals with horses, goats, chickens, cats and their dogs Shadow, Dexster and Morracco. Breakfast each day was perfect and with more food served than any one can eat. You dont need to plan on lunch with one of Terri's breakfasts.
We went horse back riding out of the lodge and viewed the Salmon River basin, Hells Canyon, White Bird Battlefield, and the Camas prairie. Frank enjoys giving all of us a little bit of history from the area. We took a day and went on a jet boat tour on the Snake River and another day and took a whitewater rafting trip on the Salmon River. All of our activities were planned with Terri and she made sure every adventure we wanted to pursue was taking care of.
This area is one of the most beautiful areas we have ever vacationed in.

My family first visited Frank & Terri in 2001 and have since been back twice! They will do as little or as much as you want.

The lodge is a beautiful wooden structure with floor to ceiling windows in the main sitting room and beautifully tiled stone floors. The owners are avid-hunters (and offer special hunting packages through their site) and the entire place is full of taxidermy-d creatures, from the normal such as elk and deer to the exotic - elephants, zebras, a mountain lion, etc. If you are not the type to find this comfortable, this is NOT the place for you.

Frank & Terri offer wonderful meals and even offer guided excursions, such as horse-back trail riding, white water rafting - or special weekends. Just before we arrived, she had the lodge filled with scrapbookers!

Each bedroom is individually themed from top to bottom and includes a personal bathroom, complete with shower.

  • Liked — From the time you walk in, until you leave, every moment is spent with friends!
  • Disliked — On our first visit, it was hard to find, but it has gotten easier as the years go by and more people live in the area.
