The gateway to the Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch starts with a grand new entrance. This impressive design by Courtney Kapp was inspired by one of the original ranch gates. The older photo was taken when Highway 75 was a dirt road linking Stanley to Ketchum, the more civilized town. Nowadays, while driving on the ranch’s dirt road to the lodge and cabins, the old west nostalgia is unmistakable

The historic lodge remains relatively flawless since its construction in 1930. Of course, with the passage of time, comes a few scars and blemishes adding to the ranch’s character.  One of the necessary improvements this spring was the redwood stairs built by our maintenance manager, Jeff. The stairs lead you to the famous front porch view of the Sawtooth Mountains! Now, all we need is you rocking on the front porch!

Happy Trails!
