Overview

Eastern Idaho Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Deluxe fully restored homestead cabin, Sleeps 5, 1 bathroom, 2 viewing decks

The Henry's Fork Ranch offers guests 2 miles of private access to the renowned Henry's Fork of the Snake River. This section of river is very wadable or floatable, but most important , 80% of the fish caught off our banks measure 16 inches or more. The ranch is a 500 acre working cattle ranch that caters to the outdoor enthusiast. Ranch activities include fly fishing, bird watching, waterfowl hunting, sight seeing, relaxing, and cross country skiing. Since we offer one solitary cabin, you'll share the ranch with the host, cattle, horses and sheep, but no other guests.

Fishing on the Henry's Fork: The Henry's Fork of the Snake River is open year round for fishing. Most anglers prefer to fish with flies but the river allows rod casting as well. This stretch of the river is designated as a wild fishery so it has limits and restrictions. The fishery is very healthy and big Rainbow and Brown Trout are the norm for anglers.

Henry's Fork Ranch is in the middle of it all: The Henry's Fork Ranch is centrally located near many of the areas major attractions. Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks are within a short drive. There is also Jackson Hole Wyoming, West Yellowstone and St. Anthony Sand Dunes. The ranch sits on the bank of the Henry's Fork but there are the South Fork of the Snake River, Madison River, Warm River, Fall River, Robison Creek, and numerous other streams. We also have major lakes like Henrys Lake, Island Park Reservoir, Hebgen Lake, and Ashton Reservoir to fish.

Year round activities: The ranch provides an environment for many migrating birds and waterfowl. Bird watchers come to see a wide variety of bird species such as Trumpeter Swans, Canada Geese, Sandhill Cranes, Bald Eagles, Osprey and a wide variety of songbirds. Other activities include ATV riding, Golfing, Horseback riding, hiking, rafting, skiing and snowmobiling depending on the time of year. Waterfowl hunting is available on the ranch and big game hunting is nearby.

Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5

We booked this ranch stay several months before our summertime driving trip around the western states. After 3 weeks in standard hotel rooms, Henry's Fork Ranch was a fabulous respite from the routine. The Fuchs made us feel so much like family. From our initial greeting on arrival, to the daily visits after there work day, and to the 4 wheeler trips around the ranch and fishing spots. Then there was the family dinner which was such a pleasant surprise followed by an evening at the Rodeo. I wish every American could experience such a reality check.

The cabin had everything we could ever need, including a big back porch; perfect for lounging or visiting or spreading out all the fishing gear, and within earshot of the river.

This was a great place get away from it all and just what we were looking for.

Owner's Response: Many of the guests who stay with us do become part of our family or at least the family of outdoor enthusiasts who appreciate nature, fun, good friends, natural wonders and simple pleasures. A friendly dinner and a summer rodeo are all the ingredients that were required to make ranch guests into close friends who we look forward to have stay with us again. The memories of catching your first Henry's Fork Trout or the challenge of stocking a large trout that has broken your leader before. These are the memories and lessons that the river will give you for free.

The perfect spot to enjoy Idaho fishing...

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place to use as a home base for fly fishing trips in the area. The cabin had everything we could want.....it was clean, spacious, and well equipped. It is our preference to relax on a back porch overlooking a river after a day of fishing rather than hurry to get ready to sit in a resturant. A fully furnished kitchen and gas grill allowed us to do just that.

The Fuchs were gracious hosts....giving us area information, tips on fishing the two mile stretch in front of the cabin....and even delivering warm cookies!

Thoughtful touches such as a great movie library, a bag of ice, and a boot dryer made our stay exceptional.

You couldn't ask for a more serene and private setting.

A Fantastic Home on the River

  • 5 of 5

The Henry’s Fork Ranch is a beautiful home on an amazing ranch. The owners, Bill and Teresa, have masterfully restored the home. Inside and out, it is everything you could possibly ask for. We stayed here for six nights and we really didn’t want to leave. The relaxing atmosphere in such a beautiful setting – the river, ranch, sunsets – everything was absolutely perfect. Bill and Teresa are the bests hosts. Their warm hospitality is second to none. We felt like part of their family – from Teresa baking a surprise homemade birthday cake on Jeff’s birthday to Bill taking his time to accompany Jeff on a fly fishing adventure. Our time here was so enjoyable it will give us great memories until we can return – which will be soon.

Great Hosts, Great Fishing, Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Henry's Fork Ranch is an oasis for the weary, a Mecca for the fly fisherman and a great way to enjoy the west without all of the hassle of summer crowds. My family has stayed at the cabin on "the ranch" for three summers in a row now and we have made a couple of trips for the fall fishing and waterfowl hunting as well. The cabin is always spotless, the fishing and hunting has always been good to excellent and the location is perfect to do other things. Bill, Teresa and their family are true representatives of western culture and hospitality and exert every effort to make our stay there the best possible experience every time. It don't get no better than the Henry's Fork Ranch.(or Teresa's cookies) Thanks for a great stay!!!!!

Owner's Response: Ken + Kelly came to fish and reconnect with family and friends but have become regulars here at the ranch. They have become familiar with the ranch and the Henry's Fork River and they continue to develop their fly fishing skills. Kelly got her first goose here during the waterfowl season and they bring their Chesapeake Bay Retriever with them. He is well mannered and enjoys the freedom and loves the river (and the Chesapeake likes it to). While we don't allow indoor pets in the cabin, we have accommodations for dogs outside. We only have one guest cabin here at the ranch so we have the ability to meet and spend some time with our guests to answer questions about this great place we call home. We look forward to their return and spending time with them in the future.

Beautiful winter wonderland

  • 5 of 5

I had to write a review as well as John. What a beautiful cabin and amazing property to explore in the winter. While the boys duck hunted in the heated blind, I explored on snowshoes(it snowed a foot the night we came) but XC skis would be great as well. The birdwatching and photography opportunities were wonderful. At one point as I made my way along the river I watched 25 Trumpeter swans land and hang out on the river shore for a good 25 minutes. Many beautiful photos. Elliot our 13 year old loved riding the snow mobile out to the blind. Special times in a winter wonderland! Thank you Bill and Teresa for your cookies, cake, use of dog crate, and helpful and interesting info about the area. We will be back!

Owner's Response: It is very nice for Joan to send us such a nice review about her families experience while they stayed with us during the holidays. This is the first time we have gotten reviews from both the husband and wife. It gives both a man's and woman's perspective of what they liked about what the ranch offers our guests. We look forward to their next stay

great family trip!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for some family time and some waterfowl and found both. Thank you Bill and Teresa for the warm welcome and helping with finding our way around the ranch. The cabin is cozy and well set up. We look forward to a next visit.

Owner's Response: John and his family came right after Christmas for a few days to do some waterfowl hunting. They arrived just before heavy snow fall and enjoyed watching it snow while they stayed nice and warm in the cabin. Since the hunting blind is a mile away from the cabin we used the snowmobile and equipment sled to get them and their equipment to the heated blind. Joan really liked snowshoeing and watching all of the Trumpeter Swans, Bald Eagles and other wildlife. The two sons had a great time being with their mom, dad and their yellow lab. While they were here for a short stay, they made some great new family memories of the 2014 Christmas season. We look forward to their return to the Henry's Fork Ranch.
