A unique B and B experience

3.2 on August 20, 2015

The road up to WBSL is in a word..pannoramic..the view is breathtaking. We enjoyed the farm / ranch ambience the animals and even the museum of trophy mounts from hunts, expeditions and safaris our hosts have taken. We were there to enjoy a jet boat tour up the Snake River through Hells Canyon. We toured with Killgore Adventures out of White Bird and had a wet but wonderful time. We recommend doing what we did..stay at the logde, enjoy the ambience and scenery, and take the tour.

Better than expected

Nice place. Hostess was excellent! No cell phone service, but did not effect us any. Breakfast was excellent! I would recommend this to anyone that likes a rustic but nice place to stay!

What a wonderful experience and friendly hosts

We were looking for a relaxing, yet fun family experience. We found it at Whitebird Summit Lodge! Terri and Frank are fantastic hosts. Friendly, outgoing, and ready to help us enjoy our stay. There was swimming for the kids, and horseback riding for all of us. Frank was a lot of fun on the ride. Terri lined up a great rafting trip on the Salmon River. Exciting! The themed bedrooms were very comfortable. Our whole family stayed in one "bunkhouse" room, a value for us, though they have many choices. And, we had free reign of the spacious living rooms, sun room, and deck. Watching the hummingbirds feed inches away from us was a unexpected extra. The breakfasts...to die for! Terri puts on a wonderful spead! We'll be back!

Incredible experience

4.6 on January 11, 2010

Not only are the surroundings peaceful and relaxing, but the owners, Frank & Terri, are excellent hosts. Gourmet meals, engaging activities, and an unforgettable atmosphere all blend to create an experience you'll want to repeat. The ducks, geese, horses, dogs, goats, and wildlife also add to the entire effect. My husband and I will most certainly be back -- and I'm already gathering up some girlfriends to do one of the Girls Only special packages weekend!

Probably my favorite Vacation

Wow! This place is amazing. Frank and Terri (the owners) are some of the nicest people I have met, and the view there is amazing. I only wish i could go spend 4 or 5 days there every summer.
