About Margaret

I am a retired contractor and have loved fly-fishing since the age of 12. I spent many years fishing with my sons in the Swan Valley area.

Why Margaret chose Irwin

When I found this house on the Snake River, it was like a dream come true. It has provided us with wonderful family memories as our sons and their families join us for summer vacations.

What makes this house unique

The location of this home is perfect for exploring the Eastern Idaho/Western Wyoming area. We are about an hour from Jackson Hole and about 2 1/2 hours south of Yellowstone National Park. The scenery is gorgeous at any time of year.

Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house located on the Snake river. I organized a large group of friends for a week of fly fishing. We've done this for 10 years and this year was one of the best. The house made a huge difference, we all loved it.

Very Pleased

  • 5 of 5

The pictures, as beautiful as they look, don't even describe how nice this place is. Very clean, well maintained and well stocked. The back deck, overlooking the river, was our favorite part. We ate almost every meal out on the deck. Palisades Reservoir, nearby, is a beautiful boating and fishing lake. Great for water skiing and not at all crowded. Trail head for running/hiking trails up Palisades canyon to the two Palisades natural lakes are very close. We saw moose, eagles, pelicans and more. We had planned to spend an afternoon and dinner in Jackson, but we decided we'd rather stay here and fix our own meal and enjoy yet another evening on the deck and around the fire pit. No regrets. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice getaway in beautiful surroundings.

Perfect Vacation and Fishing Rental Home

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year I've stayed at this very comfortable riverfront home/lodge.

It located along the finest stretches of fly fishing water in the country. Lots of good

sized Rainbows, German Browns & Cuttthroats. And the fishing begins nearly off

the backporch. A driftboat is available for rent from the owners or one can rent a

boat and guide from operators in the area.

The home itself is very roomy and comfortable for any season of the year. I was

there in the Fall and early Summer. The fall colors are spectacular on the surrounding

mountains. The home is surrounded by a lush lawn which makes it a perfect place for

children to play - - or practice your fly casting techniques. There's also an area for

a campfire. It's off the road which makes it very quiet.

The home is well appointed with all the creature comforts. A beautiful kitchen which

looks out on the backporch, lush lawn and rolling river. Many comfortable beds in 4

separate bedrooms and bathrooms which gives lots of privacy for multi-family use. It has

a huge deck which runs along the entire back portion of the house. Great for BBQ's and

social gatherings.

For those who wish to sightsee in the area, both Idaho Falls and Jackson Hole are less

than an hour away. Lots of good restaurants and fun shopping in both.

If you love the outdoors, great fishing, and all around serenity of a mountain vacation,

I can think of no better area and home to stay. Enjoy!!!

Wonderful Experience!!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here several times over the past few years and found amenities, atmosphere, and location uncomparable. I live in the mountains near a scenic lake and river, and when I say that this lodge and surrounding property are breathtaking, I am comparing them to one of the finest fishing, vacation, and recreational areas in the country. If you are into shopping you will need a car and a day, but if you are into fishing, just grab a pole and step out the back door. You will not be disappointed.

Accurate and complete.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this Lodge on several occasions at different times of the year. It is well maintained, completely equipped and very clean. Our favorite time of the year to visit is late September. The foliage has turned and is as beautiful as anything we have seen in the New England area when the colors change. The wildlife is abundant and often can be seen without setting foot off the deck. When we want a night out, the Rockefeller fishing camp and restaurant is nearby for cocktails and dinner. We always return home completely relaxed after a vacation at Snake River Lodge. We'll visit there again in 2012.

This is a beautiful, well-appointed home right on the Snake River in lovely Swan Valley, nestled between two mountain ranges. There is a feeling of peace and seclusion as it is well off the highway, and there are no adjacent homes. You can sit on the deck and watch the river go by as eagles, osprey, and white pelicans soar over head. Jackson and Idaho Falls are less than an hour away. The house is spacious, clean, and very comfortable. I have enjoyed many a delightful stay in this home, and I would heartily recommend it to others.
