It was love at first sight when we found Williams Lake. We traveled the western U.S. for years looking for a vacation property, and when we saw Williams Lake, we knew we were home. We love the lake and Salmon River activities such as fishing and boating. We love the uncrowded Salmon area which has the friendliest people ever!
Williams Lake is like no other place. It is peaceful and scenic.
We hope you enjoy using the boats to get out on the lake....2 kayaks, canoe, rowboat, SUP. Use of the boats is complimentary for our guests.
It's hard to find a nicer place than the Jumping Trout Lodge. It is beautiful inside and out - and has everything within it that you need. The cabin is on the lake, with a ramp leading to a boat dock, which is perfect for enjoying an evening on Adirondack chairs near the water. Tommy and Roberta are the BEST owners, as they keep the home updated, and they are very gracious and friendly. We were there last year, and as we returned this year we noted the new roof, new siding, new doors and even new landscaping on the lower lot. There is a sand area immediately in front of the house if you'd like to play volleyball and two lounges if you'd prefer to sit on the "beach." They provide a canoe, two kayaks and a little fishing boat, plus life jackets. Tommy set a string of small white lights on the lot they own immediately to the east down by the fire pit, and provided wood for a fire there. Also, the large deck has a table/chair set with a propane flame, a double hammock, a picnic table and a lounge chair. There is nothing missing in this cabin except a television ... and that is a good thing! It's a perfect place to read, relax and enjoy the beauty of Williams Lake. Though I was timid about the outside shower, it is terrific. We have a large shower at home, and as we left my husband said he wanted to take the shower with him. It's totally private, of course, but also is large enough to bring your change of clothes with you and dress before you step back out of it. This lodge is really quite nice, and it is without doubt the best vacation we've ever taken because it's quiet enough to relax and enjoy and not be troubled with traffic or street lights or convenience stores. If there were more stars than five, that is how we'd rate it. You cannot go wrong by choosing the Jumping Trout Lodge.
From the first communication to the property owners of this home to our end of trip thank you, these folks exemplified customer service and friendliness. The home is exactly as advertised, plus! It has every amenity to make a vacation stay relaxing, fun, and comfortable- water craft to fit every style, an outdoor gallery of furniture for relaxing and enjoying the beauty of the scenery or just enjoying a book or nap(!), an interior that is as stunning as it is functional.The area is gorgeous, and the home sits far enough into the mountain to make trips out a real adventure. (pay attention to the caution to drive in during daylight hours). Quiet, serene, peaceful, beautiful scenery and wildlife. This was a true vacation home and location. The locals are wonderfully friendly. The blue book (information binder) with area attractions was spot on- white water rafting and a trip to the hot springs were truly memorable. The wildlife, Deer, Sheep, Bald Eagles and fishing were spectacular. What a great trip. We have already recommended this to others.
This is my second time back at the cabin, I love it. The addition of the fire pit, right next to the lake, is awesome for roasting marsh mellows and singing campfire songs.My grandchildren and I had so much fun using the 2 kayaks, row boat, canoe, and body board. The newly expanded deck is great. We will be back again and again!
We enjoyed the very scenic view of the lake from the house and spacious deck.
The setting was unique, beautiful and interesting. Our hosts were friendly and helpful; we enjoyed talking to them. The kayaks were a were a real plus. We had lots of fun kayaking on the lake. The home was comfortable and provided everything we needed with the exception of linens.
This is an outstanding vacation lodge located at Williams Lake above Salmon, Idaho. The refurbished but quaint cabin will sleep 10 people and there is plenty of room for lounging.
