Met your Senator Crapo in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday for breakfast. I told him of our Idaho trip and that you were the best lodge in the Riggins area. -Tim P.- Ohio
The Last Resort Lodge sits on the banks of the Little Salmon River. A picturesque setting with a mountain flair, the quaint, very comfortable Lodge with its mountain decor, sits among large pines and a landscaped back yard with large covered deck. With just a leisurely stroll across the back yard, you can be casting your fly to a feisty rainbow.

10 miles to the west as the crow flies from the Lodge, is the eastern boundary of Hells Canyon National Recreation Area, the deepest river gorge in North America. 20 miles to east of the Lodge is the western boundary of the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness Area, the largest contiguous wilderness in the lower 48, comprising of 2.5 million acres. The Lodge is conveniently located with easy paved access on U.S. Highway 95 just 20 miles North of New Meadows and 13 miles South of Riggins, Idaho, between milepost 181 and 182. U.S. Highway 95 is the only highway or road of any kind that links North and South Idaho and we are centrally located between the two.
We have 1 guest bedroom with an individual bathroom and two additional bedrooms that share a bathroom . Each room has its own decorative lodge theme. All bedrooms have doors leading into the main room, and the 2 main bedrooms also have French Doors opening onto a large deck.
There is a mud/gear room to change wet or soiled clothes, hang waders, tie flies, fix gear, etc.
We have a large landscaped yard, and a small kennel for hunting dogs. Large pine trees are part of the very picturesque mountain setting adjacent to a trout, steelhead, and salmon stream/river.
The cuisine is western and delicious, with dutch ovens, barbecue, and a touch of gourmet. We cook from scratch, making our own breads and desserts. The focal point of our meals is a 100+ year old sourdough start that is second to none. We take great pride in what we prepare and select from fresh local produce and prime meats, resulting in a very flavorful extravaganza of recipes.
