Last summer I had the honor of visiting River Dance Lodge in Kamiah, Idaho. This was our second visit to the lodge grounds where they offer food, river trips, hiking, glamping & much more. Tucked away near Kamiah, this beautiful retreat gets you out of cell reception & into a central location that offers a variety of relaxing activities.
Owned by the same owner as Coeur d’Alene’s amazing ROW Adventures, River Dance Lodge is in close proximity to several natural hot springs, the Lewis & Clark Trail & it’s not too far away from what we call Heaven’s Gate.
The grounds at River Dance Lodge are beautiful, & I’ve heard that this is also a popular wedding location. The tents themselves are really clean & the wood burning fireplace is easy to light (they provide firewood).
This aerial shoot was a small one, & I did end up breaking one of my drone blades (oh no!) but all in all, it was a wonderful weekend spent at River Dance Lodge with my husband, relaxing by the fire & enjoying the clawfoot tub that sits in the back.
Because this was the summer of 2020 (during COVID), we were unable to enjoy the dining options, but we did take a few walks along the river, & even drove out for our second attempt to visit Heaven’s Gate, which was sadly unsuccessful. (The first was due to snow, this time fog!)
I know you’re curious! Heaven’s Gate is a lookout location a little over two hours away. From this viewpoint, you can see into Idaho (obviously), Washington, Oregon & Montana. One day we will get to see this – one day!
