Beckwith Lodge in the Stanley Basin. The Lodge is perfectly located to begin almost any of your outdoor adventures. Public land is out the back door. You are free to go and enjoy.

Each season offers unique opportunities for those coming to visit. We look forward to having you stay with us. Always feel free to ask questions so we can help out.
Year Purchased: 1978
About the owner: Bob and Marcia were Idaho Educators. Guiding white water raft trips brought Bob and Marcia to the Salmon River, Sawtooths and Stanley Basin. Bob is a licensed white water guide. He has guided commercial trips on Upper Main, Main Salmon, Middle Fork of the Salmon, and Lower Salmon River. Marcia helped with river trip logistics and food management. We had a love of Idaho outdoors when we came to the basin. Working, playing, having and raising kids and now grand kids along the Salmon River and the Sawtooth Mountains is the fabric of our lives. During his career Bob taught, Biology, Environmental Sciences, Photography, and Yearbook for 33 years. Marcia was an English and Social Studies Teacher who then became a librarian-tech consultant. She completed her 34 year Career with Boise School District managing over 50 libraries.
Why the Owner Chose Stanley, ID, USA:
The land was purchased in 1978, the Logs were cut in 1979, and the Lodge built in 1983. We picked the piece of land because it provides easy access, with a wonderful Sawtooths View. The Salmon River is only 100 yards away. The Lodge is used year around so there is no challenge accessing the lodge because of weather or winter conditions. The Lodge has provided the perfect place to launch one day to days long adventures. Almost every outdoor adventure can begin at the Lodge. The Beckwiths have enjoyed starting many float trips, back packs, hikes, hunting and fishing trips from the Lodge. Families have been coming since the doors were in place for their celebrations. The Lodge was designed to provide adequate space for a family group, friends and guests. With the decks, bar-b-cue, hot tub, backyard, and fire pit area outdoor celebrations have occurred with more than 50 people. As educators we knew we wouldn't be able to use the cabin year around. We built it with the vision of having a Lodge for our family, friends and guests' celebrations and adventures.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
The Sawtooths come with lots of space. There are miles and miles of open space. They provide a place for a lifetime of adventures. You can walk from the Lodge onto your public land. You don’t even have to ask access. You are free to go, hike, hunt, fish, (with proper licenses), explore, sled, ski, and celebrate. The Salmon River is out the front door. It is the longest river in the United States to start and end within a given state. You could launch a boat 100 yards from the front door and go all the way to the Pacific! And some folks have done that. We tried to design the lodge to capture some of that spaciousness. When you are sitting at the table you can look up 26 feet to ceiling above. You can cast your eyes out multiple windows, each offering their own view. You can look up to the balcony and second floor above. Each time of year offers something different. Winter can be mild to well below zero. When the temperatures dip into the minus numbers, the air is crystal clear. You will hardly see the Sawtooths more beautiful. The wild flowers and green of spring and early summer couldn’t be richer. The wild critters are always around. Sometime you will hear them and sometimes you will see them. Over our time here we have heard the call of many kinds of birds. The geese love the open meadows. Bald Eagles fly the river corridor. Osprey can be seen taking fish from the Salmon River. Elk bugle in the fall. This is a treat when soaking in the hot tub. Wolves and coyotes have howled out the daily news. From the Lodge we have seen deer, elk, antelope, coyotes, an occasional bear, and wolves (very, very rare). At one point in time Todd the Fox (grandchildren’s choice of name) came for visits. This was a major delight for those at the Lodge. Sometimes you will see them and sometimes you won't. We always encourage guests to keep their eyes open; one never knows when something will show up to show off. Binoculars are a handy tool.
