About Theresa Schmitz

We came west for the mountains,” say Frank and Terri Schmitz. The couple, originally from Wisconsin, now own and reside at the White Bird Summit Bed and Breakfast Lodge.

Open since 2000, the Lodge sits a mile east of Highway 95’s White Bird Pass. At about 4,300 feet above sea level, the two-story structure affords the Schmitzs and their guests a breathtaking view of mountains -- and more mountains. Thirty or so years ago, before the current highway between Grangeville and White Bird was straightened and widened, a meandering Highway 95 ran right by where the Schmitzs now live. The Great Room is filled with comfortable furniture, wildlife art and taxidermy displays. Off one side of the room, French doors open to a spacious sun room with windows overlooking the canyon. One wall replicas a rock wall that includes a built in Fish tank. Bringing the outdoors indoors the wall fits right into the wildlife theme. This is another adventure of Frank and Terri's. The manufacture simulated rock panels for building these rock walls. Off of the other, entry to the Africa room offers an opportunity for quiet conversation or an evening nightcap at the hand crafted bar. Other amenities include an outdoor BBQ and bar garden. Lower level guestrooms – except for the Wisconsin Room that reflects the Schmitzs roots – sport names like ‘World Travel ,’ ‘Buffalo Bill,’ ‘Rodeo’ and ‘Summit.’ Three of the rooms have private patios. All have private baths. “Frank’s had lots of fun with things like putting a stone shower stall with swinging half doors and a ‘rainwater’ shower head in the Buffalo Bill room,” Terri says.

Theresa Schmitz purchased this house in 1999

Why Theresa Schmitz chose Idaho

The house is minutes from the Salmon river, Snake River and the Clearwater river. renting the house you have full access to all amenities, full kitchen, BBQ patio area. Located on 70 acres and adjacent to the Nez Perce National Forest for hiking. Intermingle with all the ranch animals, Horse trail rides available for additional cost. We will assist with any additional activites like white water rafting on the Salmon river and Jet boat tours on the Snake river. We have three large sitting areas and large game room.

What makes this house unique

In the trail riding department, Frank says, “We have 31 gentle horses for half-day, full day, hourly to overnight trips. And we work with some great whitewater outfitters to offer combination ‘saddle and paddle’ packages.” That’s where Terri’s skills as a travel and airline agent come in. “I can make air line reservations, set up rafting or fishing charters. All sorts of combinations,” she says with a travel agent’s enthusiasm. “When guests get here and two of them want to go hiking, two want to go horseback riding and two want to go fishing or golfing – we've got the diversity to make all those things possible.”
