Was a very nice place for our first BW, we didn’t know what to expect. The driveway was a tough one for our front wheel drive Promaster but we made it and it was worth it! We saw wild turkey and a big group of does with their first year fawns. Great experience! Thank you, Gary!

Gary is a wonderful host and his property is a great spot to stay, on top of a mountain! It was a bit scary for me going up and down, but my wife driving the 30 foot motorhome had no problem. The view is fantastic! You can watch storms that are miles away. Plus while we were there the plums were in season and delicious. We had nightly visits of deer and turkeys. Gary responded quickly and it's available when needed. We would definitely stay again.

Really enjoyed our visit. A little muscle to get there but well worth it. Gary is a great host. There when you need him and out of hair when you don’t. Perfect. Views are amazing. We should have had a cell booster though to more easily do work, but that is no reflection on the host.

What an amazing location and amazing host. There property is high up on the hillss above the Snake River at a bend in the river giving you amazing views in a few directions. Gary met me as I made it up their drive (its steep as they described) and directed me to the area where I could park for the evening. I settled in for the evening and as another guest wrote I broke out a book and sat outside. Thank you for being a my Host.

We stayed two years ago, and I see that I failed to leave a review. This was a beautiful spot up on a hill. Thanks for letting us stay!
