“The Writer’s Den”
Enjoy a relaxing getaway next to the Little Salmon River in Central Idaho. “The Writer’s Den” offers one queen bed and a microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker. This cabin features rustic decor and offers both heat and A/C for year round comfort.

"Super clean and quiet for the right price. We had our RV right on the river with full hook ups, where we could relax, read a book, catch some fish, have a fire, play games, or take a nap in the hammock, We could not have asked for anything more enjoyable. The owners were very accommodating and pleasant."
