About Jocelyn and Doug Plass

Family of four (plus a crazy dog). We love all four seasons in the Sawtooth Mountains!

Why Jocelyn and Doug Plass chose Stanley

Our home is located in town but just enough outside to enjoy the peace and quiet...just a 3 block walk. Easy access to library, clinic, restaurants, shopping and a few bars. There is live music frequently in the summer. Easy access to hiking trails and many lakes.

What makes this cabin unique

Amazing Sawtooth views and is located on Valley Creek. Fish right from the backyard.

Large, comfortable and sunny and has all amenities needed to disconnect and reconnect.

Enjoy lovely warm days and cool nights in our wonderful log home.

A magical experience.

  • 5 of 5

The perfect accommodation for a first-time visit to the Dark Sky Reserve. A very cozy, clean, and romantic space - well appointed with everything we needed. Centrally located enough to explore the area, yet tucked away for a feeling of privacy. Belle, the resident Aussie Shepard, was a sweet added touch. Will definitely return! Thanks for the memories!

We loved Stanley!

  • 5 of 5

Great spot that was cozy and warm when we arrived. Jocelyn and Doug were very accommodating and made the apartment easy to access. The views in the morning from the studios big windows are almost worth it alone. Stanley is such a cool little town. I wish we could have planned our trip in September to take advantage of the other restaurants in town since many of them are only open in the spring/summer. We hope to be back in this part of Idaho in the future!

A perfect studio with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

The studio is much more spacious than we expected, with a nicely equipped kitchen, lots of storage space, easy walking access to "downtown" Stanley, and gorgeous views. It'd be comfortable even for a family of four. We highly recommend it and would stay here again on our next visit.
