This is one of the few places that I have ever been that I can't wait to return. Lynn, Mike and the crew are top notch and have the most gracious, caring staff anywhere! It only takes one visit and you are family. During two different successfull steelhead trips with Shepp, I am planning a summer fly fishing trip with them. The views are amazing (nothing like watching two Big Horned Sheep rams fighting right off the bank of the river) and the food is second to none. After a cold afternoon on the river in late November, it was absolutely so nice to get back to the cabin and have a fire already going in your cabin. The hot tub on a clear night always soothes the bones and refreshes the soul while listening to the water running by in Crooked Creek. You may leave Shepp, but Shepp never leaves you
My company held a management retreat at Shepp Ranch last fall. We were treated wonderfully and the staff made special accomodations for our group. The food was great
and the secluded location (no TV, Cell, ipad, etc) made sure the facilitator got everyone's
My wife Connie and myself, Steve Evans of Lapwai, Idaho, decided to hike down trail 214 off of Jersey Mt. to Shepp Ranch. We left Wed. August 24. (It was my birthdfay trip, I just turned 68). Our plan was to leave the end of Forest Service Rd. 222l, off of the Mackay Bar Rd. We had reservations to spend the night of the 25th at Shepp Ranch, so we planned to camp along the trail the night of the 24th and then proceed to the Ranch on the 25th. Road 22l was not cleared so we began our trip by crawling over logs across the road. When we arrived at what we believed was the end of the road we dove off the ridge. visibility was limited but from what we could see our detailed 7.5 map just never made sense. Long story short, we were two nights on the trail and severely dehydrated when the employees of Shepp Ranch really rescued us and brought us back to health. I cannot say enough about the fine qualities of Lynn, Mike, Christy, Elli, Greg and Dave. Their good character and judgment along with their straight-ahead kindness and service was truly a source of joy and literal salvation. We will love Shepp Ranch forever and be back ASAP. Thank you Mike, Lynn and the Crew. Call us if you want to go down F.S. trail 214, and we will tell you how (and how not) to do it. Steve Evans, Lapwai
Three adult couples who are long term friends all with small children trying to relax get away from it all and enjoy each others company headed up to Shepp ranch July 25. The fun started with the Jet boat ride in. We hiked, fly fished, road horses, took jet boat tours, swam on secluded beaches, ate wonderful meals, had some fly fishing lessons and completely enjoyed ourselves. My only complaint was that I did not want to leave after only a few days. We plan to make it a yearly event. It is a wonderful wilderness setting with excellent food, helpful staff and so much to do outdoors!
I have been to Shepp Ranch twice and plan on returning. It is well worth the money. The Ranch and the surrounding area is rich with Idaho history. The vacation itself can be catered to your liking: you can be as active or as inactive as you want, you can go there with a group or alone, it's perfect for kids and adults alike. You are guaranteed of some fantastic meals and hospitality. Every person who comes to Shepp Ranch is made to feel a part of the Ranch family. I can't say enough about it!
