I had been dreaming of coming to the IRMR after seeing an article in Country Living Magazine back in the early 1980's - and it finally came true. It's an amazing thing when something is better than you ever imagined and this place is it. Sandra is a truly gracious hostess. The staff lets you want for nothing. And the...

This is one of the most beautiful and well-appointed places you could stay in the middle of eye-popping Idaho. The amenities are amazing, every detail is carefully attended to, and the hiking, fishing, horse riding, biking, etc. available nearby is to die for. I just can't say enough. I could easily stay for several weeks if I had the time....

The Sawtooth range is similar to the Grand Teton, without the crowd. Enjoy staying at this historic lodge with spectacular views of the Sawtooth range while staying in the spacious cabins or lovely lodge rooms. Three wonderful meals are included daily that are amazing both in variety and presentation. There is a hot springs swimming pool, pond with paddleboat, horseback...

This wonderful lodge sits on sweeping ranch land looking out at the snow-capped SAWTOOTH RANGE. We had a lovely cabin with an adjoining room for our children. Each side of the cabin had a working fireplace, stone shower, cozy quilts and a large front porch. Superlative hiking, world class fishing and big blue sky fill your day. The lodge, staff...

This is the third day of five that we booked at the ranch. I do not know where to start....the setting is let's say very special, it's just outside of Stanley across from Redfish Lake, the ranch is perched on a shelf that rises above the Salmon River and offers a view of nearly the entire Sawtooth Mountain Range. Our...

As we were driving north up 75 on our way to the ranch I looked off to our left and said, ‘Wow! Look at that beautiful house.’ A second later we passed an Adopt a Highway sign on our right that was sponsored by IRMR and I said, ‘Wait! That was the Ranch!’ We made a right turn into the...

IRMR is a one of a kind place located near Stanley, Idaho. This is to say that it is nowhere near a population center. The views of the Sawtooth Mountain Range cannot be equaled. One feels close to nature. The porch is amazing: rocking chairs, quiet, etc.. This place is pretty much totally off the grid and that should be...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The living history of the Old West mingles with the solitude and peace of this 1000-acre ranch, offering freedom, breathtaking natural beauty, and a relaxed atmosphere. Surrounded by the largest protected wilderness area in the "lower 48", guests will enjoy full days of outdoor adventures, our authentic lodge and cabins, delicious meals, rejuvenating natural hot springs pool, and plenty of relaxation time. The atmosphere is friendly and casual, and the view from the front porch –well, you just have to experience that for yourself.This 50-person guest ranch is an ideal homebase to enjoy one of America’s most majestic natural treasures, --- The Sawtooth National Recreation Area. The Sawtooth Mountains are an outdoor enthusiast’s wonderland, with miles of hiking and biking trails, scenic western horseback riding, and countless opportunities for fishing, rafting and exploring the pristine Salmon River.The Ranch property originally was part of Stanley Basin pioneer Dave Williams’ homestead. It was acquired in 1929 by New York Frigidaire executive Winston Paul, who began building the Idaho Rocky Mountain Club. A crew of 60 men, among them a blacksmith and stonemason, camped on the Ranch property in the fall of 1929 until they were forced to leave by severe winter weather. Construction began with the snaking of logs up Williams and Gold Creek to the Big Meadow chosen as the Lodge site. The crews returned the following spring to complete construction, and the Idaho Rocky Mountain Club opened that summer as an invitation-only guest facility.A hydroelectric plant, whose log structure housing still stands at the willowed bend in the pond, generated power for the IRMC providing the first electricity in the Sawtooth Valley. Several of the original power gauges can also still be found around the Ranch. ... more   less
