Mountain Setting; 2 bedroom, 1 bath fully equipped RETREAT

Regenerate and connect with friends and family in this idyllic setting. Delight in the experience of 'owning' a 730 acre ranch which includes our 500 acre ISLAND in the Payette River to get away from it all for unequaled R & R.

You will be the ONLY GUESTS at Island Ranch Vacation Retreat, so you can set your own schedule, your own activities, as well as your own pace--whenever.

Enjoy all of the 730 acre private working cattle ranch which includes our 500 acre Island bordered by 2 miles of the PAYETTE RIVER on one side and BIG CREEK on the other.

Relax in rustic comfort in a 2-bedroom, 1450 square foot Retreat, SLEEPS 4-6. Room for family and/or friends.

Early risers can often see ELK just beyond their window crossing Big Creek to get to the Island's main meadow in the spring and summer.

Listen for ELK bugling in the fall.
