This was the perfect accommodation for our trip to Idaho. It's a very nice and spacious cabin that worked perfectly for our group. The location was also perfect for us, we had a great time hiking in 3 different wilderness areas and whitewater rafting out of Riggins using the lodge as a base. The price was also excellent and I particularly appreciated the fact that we only paid for the space we actually used. I highly recommend this lodge and visiting this gorgeous area of Idaho!
We were in this area of Idaho for a family wedding over Labor Day weekend. Two couples (and a puppy) shared a room/cabin (actually two bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths, a living area and kitchen). The workmanship on the log cabin was very nice, and the cabin itself was spacious and very clean. The porch and the large yard provided seating areas to relax in the sun. It was a short walk across the street to the river, and a restaurant is close by. The owner, Troy, was friendly and helpful.
Customer service is priority number one for the owner/operator of this awesome lodge. Troy, the owner, met us at the property after hours as we got into town late. He made sure we had everything we needed, even going so far as to get us some bottled water. He left us his personal phone number in case we needed anything else. That was pretty impressive in my book! Then I actually looked around this "lodge." It is more along the lines of a condo wrapped in logs. All the amenities you could wish for, including a nice TV and DVR so you don't need to miss the game. Plenty of room and all done very nice. Couldn't be happier with my stay at this location.
On a side note, if you're going to stay here, you better go have a bite to eat at the South Fork Cafe. Its a couple of blocks away and you won't be disappointed with the food there. Try some pie!
What a treat it was to spend three nights at the Sportsman Lodge. It is log cabin style, much like our own home in Maryland. We spent our vacation touring 1800 miles of the west (Utah, Yellowstone in Wyoming, Montana and of course Idaho). It was so nice to be able to take a break from hotels and motels to stay in such a comfortable place. We spent the days with family in the hills of Kamiah and the evenings relaxing in our own space. Only complaint is the beds were a little loud and creaky. We could hear the kids tossing/turning throughout the night, even though they were upstairs. Same was true with my husband's tossing/turning. The loud beds made sleeping a bit tough. With that said, the owners are super nice and accommodating. They had all the amenities you'd expect in hotels and even a few I didn't expect (gallon jug of water in the refrigerator for drinking). They even let the kids climb the tree in the back yard. Double thumbs up and thanks for a helping to make it a great first visit to Idaho for us. If we do come back, we'll definitely look to stay again.
A great accommodation in this tiny town -- and at a great value. We were delighted with everything and will definitely keep this place on our list if we go back into Stites. Troy could not have been more helpful in getting us settled.
