Idaho State Parks offers several cozy yurts for year-round stays. Each sleeps five or six and provides all the comforts of home both in the winter snow or summer heat. And the views can’t be beat!
It’s the little things. Literally. Stay in a tiny home, without sacrificing amenities or comfort. Each unit at The Smokejumper includes a full mini kitchen, sleeps 4, features “smart glass” and even remote work stations.

INN AT 500 CAPITOL
Style and comfort in the center of the city. Inn at 500 Capitol is a Four Diamond, boutique hotel with soul. Enjoy unique rooms, artistic interior design, and upscale dining without leaving the property. But when you do, Boise’s charms are just steps away.

With designs inspired by Boise’s rich history, this luxury boutique hotel offers guests a “new way to stay.” In the heart of downtown Boise, take in the city with a warm cup from the hotel’s coffee house or wind down with an old fashioned at the rooftop bar. Be one of the first guests at Hotel Renegade in 2024!

McCall & Cascade
WAPITI MEADOW RANCH
Located in the heart of Idaho’s Salmon River wilderness, Wapiti Meadow Ranch offers classic guest cabins surrounded by hiking, fly fishing, wildlife watching, and more. And they’ve done it for 32 years. Wapiti Meadow Ranch is a true Idaho experience.
Sure, you could bring your RV or tent — but you don’t have to. Arrowhead includes rustic cabins and yurts just steps away from a calm stretch of the Payette River. Also included? Classes from on-site artisans.
Sleep under the stars in this beautiful geodesic dome. It may be a rustic, off-grid experience, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t high-style or comfortable. Requires walking down 32 stairs and over uneven terrain. The Cascade Dome sleeps two.
A historical staple in downtown McCall surrounded by Scandinavian culture, architecture, and tradition. With five different room types, the Scandia Inn is just a short stroll from Payette Lake, local shopping, and restaurants.
WARM LAKE LODGE
Outdoor enthusiasts – your perfect place awaits! With an elevation of 5,300 feet above sea level, this pristine location is located at Warm Lake, the largest natural lake in the Boise National Forest.
Camp, fish, hunt, hike, or spend your time at the Warm Lake Lodge restaurant and bar. The area is full of active wildlife, so there is never a shortage of things to see. Rent one of their seven cabins or opt for a camping spot just 250 feet from the short of the lake.
Welcome to McCall, Southwest Idaho’s winter wonderland. Here, the adventures don’t stop when winter hits, so we’ve put together a 4-day visit full of skiing, snowmobiling, hot springs and more.
