As long as the Snake River has wound its way majestically through the mountains and valleys of Idaho it has been considered by anglers to be one of the premier fly fishing destinations. And nowhere more so than at Henry’s Fork. It’s an experience like no other; from the over the top welcoming and gracious staff, to the fantastic cuisine, to the natural beauty all around you, it is the ideal getaway for couples or friends seeking luxurious simplicity in a glorious setting. Perched on a small cliff perfectly overlooking the teeming waters below, Henry’s Fork Lodge is a castle of cedar and a shabby-chic dream. Designed by fly fisherman and world renowned architect Joseph Esherick, it is the ultimate home away from home and ideal for any avid nature lover. When the call of the wild is in your ear this wilderness retreat is the place to go. Elegant yet quaint, Henry’s Fork Lodge with its dedication to service, fine dining, and ultra-comfortable accommodations will make it so you never want to leave.
Opened in 1991 by Nelson Ishiyama, the lodge was the realization of his vision to have a luxury retreat for those who want the finer things in life while still being close to what makes life worth living. Probably the best wild trout stream around, Henry’s Fork offers lots more than just fishing. Yes they fly fishing is out of this world but we’re sure you’ll want to spoil yourself with some of their other indulgences such as horseback riding, swimming, back country hikes, canoeing, and of course a wonderful assortment of spots for relaxing and observing the fantastically abundant wildlife that make this corner of Idaho their home. There are plenty of friendly and knowledgeable guides available to help you find your ideal adventure. In addition, Henry’s Fork Lodge is a picturesque 45 minute drive east to Yellowstone National Park where there is an endless array of high impact as well as relaxing diversions to entertain you. Once you make your way back, your accommodations will remind you why you chose this unique and beautiful place to stay. The lodge has two magnificent suites and four standard rooms in the main building along with two additional buildings with eight equally spectacular quarters. Down comforters cover big cozy log framed beds in rooms with roaring fireplaces and each having a view of the river; it’s hard to find a more soothing place to lay your head.
All throughout the decorations and furnishings reflect the history of the area with fun accent pieces including Native American artifacts, antique furniture, and lots of tasteful fishing inspired décor. The restaurant is run by Paden Skaggs, a German chef who offers a truly world class dining experience. Relying on seasonal fresh ingredients, the menu changes on a daily and wonderful basis. If you are not staying at Henry’s Fork Lodge might we strongly suggest you make reservations and take a ride out there. The extremely talented chef will make it worth your time. If you are fortunate enough to make your way here, your meals are included as a part of the room rate and you get breakfast, lunch, and dinner (non-guests are restricted to dinnertime only fare). During the warmer months the best spot for lounging is on their huge sun porch that has plenty of comfortable and rustic looking rocking chairs looking right out at the river. Open mid-May to Mid-October pricing is similar to that of other high end resorts, but Henry’s Fork Lodge is so much more than a hotel. It is a destination experience for the pioneer in all of us.
