We lived at the Big Lost Ranch since 1992 although we move down to Sun Valley for the winter. Just the last few years we started sharing our paradise with the public and it has been a very positive and fun experience.

Justine & Steve Kaiser purchased this cabin in 1992

We are very lucky and fortunate to have our own little private Idaho, we feel very blessed to live high in the mountains in-between the Pioneer and Boulder mountains. We love our three ponds and the river front and beauty all around us without looking at a neighbors building. The recreation opportunities are endless, from hiking, biking, fly fishing, exploring mountain lakes, .................................

Enjoy your very own old western bar, that we share with our guest. The views are magnificent in every direction, especially the view of the Devils Bedstead. Our three cabins are very unique, we have a indoor and outdoor shower for you. You are right on the river! You have a few different areas where you can cook on the barbeque or make a fire right on the river outside your cabins, or if the weather is not so nice you can cook inside the bar.

Cobb Family Summer 2012

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 23, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
Once agin the Cobb Family returned for a wonderful time in the cabins and at the Big Lost Ranch. Our family has a long history of camping on the North Fork of the Big Lost, going back to our Idaho grandfather and family in 1910 and continuing on through each generation to the present with our grandchildren.
We were thrilled a few years ago to discover that cabins on the beautiful sight of "the Old Homestead" property (that we have been observing over many years), now welcomes guests. We have now stayed 2 summers for a week and can't say enough about how much we enjoy being at the Big Lost Ranch. The accommodations are perfect for our family and many fun times are enjoyed around the BBQ, campfire and gathering to eat/socialize in the "Bar". The setting and sights are spectacular, while providing a calm and relaxing atmosphere. Justine and Steve are gracious hosts who have given special attention to their guests' needs. We can't wait to stay again during the summer of 2013! Jay and Anne

Highly recommend the Big Lost Ranch

My immediate family and my parents have been staying with Justine and Steve at their Big Lost Ranch for years. They are the most gracious of hosts.

Generations of our family have been traveling up to the North Fork River for the past century. I have been fishing in the area for the past 40 to 50 years usually camping in a tent or staying in an RV.

How fantastic is it to now stay in the Big Lost Ranch's comfortable cabins, with gorgeous views, a relaxing bar, with all the comforts of home! Just the sound of the meandering river as you nod off to sleep is blissful.

I would highly recommend the Big Lost Ranch. Whether you are into jogging, hiking, biking, kayaking or my favorite...fishing, you will not be disappointed. The fishing alone is first rate with several 14 inch rainbow and cutbows!

Contact Justine and Steve today. They will make your vacation comfortable and most relaxing in God's country!

Experience Paradise on the Big Lost

  • 5 of 5

A written description cannot begin to capture the total experience and fun you'll have staying with your fantastic hosts Steve and Justine Kaiser in their cabins or ranch house on the North Fork of the Big Lost. Smack dab in the middle of the highest mountains in idaho and a 30 minute drive over Trail Creek Pass to the activities in the Sun Valley/Ketchum area, their place has everything you need for a memorable stay. From the front porches of the tidy cabins you have the 11,000 foot Devil's Bedstead for your front yard beyond the North Fork as it flows past, footsteps from your door. Cook your meals and celebrate your great days in the bar/kitchen, or around the fire in the outdoor barbecue area. The cabins are comfortable, unique rustic delights, with everything provided for relaxation, right down to the cowboy pajamas laid out for your use. The fly shop is next to the bar, and Steve knows more about fishing the Big Lost and other area rivers than most of the guides in the area, with unique access opportunities starting minutes from the Ranch. The fly fishing there is truly special in these mountain surroundings, wading for big trout in multiple special locales on both the upper and lower stretches of the river. Hiking, mountain biking, river activities, and sightseeing are all around, including a must drive up the East Fork to Copper Basin, truly one of the most beautiful places in the Mountain West, with its high mountain meadows and aspen groves. Or just kick back at the Ranch and experience the peace and tranquility of your wonderful surroundings. Steve and Justine will employ their knowledge of the area to make your stay one you won't forget, truly wonderful hosts who will make you feel instantly at home, and who will go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and happy. The true test of a vacation spot is whether, once experienced, you return, and we have been coming every summer for several years and plan to do so for years to come. If your idea of a great getaway is something beyond room service, with great things to do for all ages, and to make remarkable memories to carry with you for the rest of your years, then this is the perfect place for you. I personally look forward to it every year with a passion that I hold for few other places on the planet, and in these surroundings with these stellar hosts, truly a bargain like no other. Come and experience Steve and Justine Kaiser's Big Lost Ranch - you'll be more than happy you did!

I have not set up an instant payment, I like to talk to people before booking, just to ensure that our place is right for you, and I will be honest!
Just to clarify our situation again, it is 130,- per cabin per night! All we have are three cabins, and I will give some discount if you rent all three, because I like to give everybody complete privacy! If you have more than 6 I will charge extra!
Notes An additional cabin the bar and also primitive inside cooking and dinning cabin is included in the price! So you get two cabins for the price! Again we have three cabins only, one cabin is 130,.- If you rent all three cabins I like to give you a better deal, but not in July and August!
