About Mike and Gina Friccero

The cabin was built by Gina's Dad in 1972. A retired Marine, he enjoyed the outdoors and fishing. We have continued to update it and added the new deck. All of the rock work in the fireplace and walls, as well as walkways outside were built by Casey Peru, Gina's Dad. The beautiful light fixtures and one of a kind wooden tables, lamps and cabinets were also built by Casey.

Mike and Gina Friccero purchased this cabin in 1972

Why Mike and Gina Friccero chose Idaho

We inherited this property and all of Casey's amazing work when he passed away a few years back. We decided to rent it so that we can continue to improve and update it.

What makes this cabin unique

Bird watching is amazing. On the flight path for many migratory birds, combined with a large, diverse bird localized population there is always something interesting to see. If you enjoy the back country you can drive or hike to many beautiful areas.

Great little getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was nice!. Huge deck out back where you can sit and enjoy morning coffee and watch the water go by. Lots of birds like to hang out in the trees and chatter. Kitchen had everything we needed.

My only real negetive is that the property is a solid 30 min, drive from Salmon. It's a pretty drive, though.

We'd definitely go back.

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable right on the Salmon River beautiful back porch which is 10 ft from the Salmon River and a beautiful Rock Ridge beyond that. There is a Road between the river and the ridge and the traffic is very very light.

Beautiful riverside cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the cabin, the views of the hill side and Salmon river where breathtaking. The cabin was very clean and suited all of our needs for our relaxing vacation. Communition with the owners Mike and Gina Friccero was easy. Having stayed in other rentals in the area this was by far the best and I would highly recommend this for your stay. We will hopefully be returning in the spring and next fall again.

Amazing getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was all we expected and more, truly special location, ambiance, comfort, and convenience, highly recommend it

Our goal was a remote getaway with lots of exploring by ATV and this was the PERFECT place to do it

Lemhi Pass and the Continental Divide, Bayhorse ghost mining town and alpine lakes at 9000' or higher by Challis, Wallace Lake and lookout points right above the town of Salmon - it was all beautiful and fun. Coming home to the cabin was perfect end to our days and we thank the owners for sharing this spot!
