Family Ranch is located in the
heart of Idaho (see
map), surrounded by beautiful
pine-covered mountains. We
are in the Primitive Area that
is approximately 3 hours driving distance
from most towns of any size. The closest
are Boise, Twin Falls, Idaho Falls,
and Hailey, Idaho and Missoula, Montana.
1997 we began to remodel an old ranch house
and five outbuildings for the purpose of accommodating
our very large family (13 children -yes, 13!)
for family reunions and holidays. Our first
goal was to establhish a Bed and Breakfast
for a business. As the project progressed,
so did our vision of what could be done. The
evolution of the Ranch has brought us much
joy and satisfaction. We are very happy to
be able to share our Ranch and this amazing
part of the world with you.

closest commercial airports are
in Boise and Idaho Falls, Idaho.
There are small ports for private
planes in Stanley and Challis. They
are each 30 miles from the Ranch.
Fortunately we have temperate weather
(for Idaho) year-round. From the
end of May through June it is generally
beautiful and warm in the day, with
cool nights. It is often hot in
the daytime during July and August,
but warm in the evenings and cool
at night. The fall months are beautiful
and warm -with cold nights. Winter
is generally cold with good snow
for winter sports. Like anywhere
else, the exception sometimes rules.
Be prepared for anything!
