Location + Surroundings

This scenic getaway is nestled in the heart of Boxman Canyon near the small town of Island Park in Idaho. The property is full of thick pine trees and lush green grasslands, with the Henry's Fork River flowing through the area right in front of the accommodation. Henry's Fork then empties into the Island Park Reservoir to the north and the Snake River further west, which is known as the number one spot for fly fishing around the world.

In just 30 minutes, guests can also access the town of West Yellowstone, which is home to the west gate entrance of Yellowstone National Park. Yellowstone is one of the most celebrated national parks in the country, known for its bubbling red, green, and blue hot springs and of course, the symbolic natural geyser, Old Faithful. The property is also within close proximity to Upper and Lower Mesa Falls and Targhee National Forest, where guests can hike to undisturbed waterfalls and through rustic forests, as well as pristine lakes, green meadows, and scenic canyons.

Activities

  • Swimming
  • Boating/Sailing
  • Fishing
  • Whale watching
  • Yoga
  • Feeding animals
  • Water sports

Guests staying at the resort will have all of the splendor of the Island Park area at their fingertips. Targhee National Forest is to the south, and Yellowstone National Park lies to the north, and Henry's Fork River is right in the front yard. On the property, guests can fly fish on the river or go mountain biking on the many miles of trails that wind throughout the forest. At night, glampers can sit down for a gourmet meal at the resort restaurant, or stargaze in one of the fields beyond the rental.

Guests can then venture into the region of eastern Idaho, where they can hike to the Upper and Lower Mesa Falls or up Mount Sawtelle for views of Henry’s Lake and the Teton Mountains in the distance. In Targhee National Forest, guests will find an enormous network of hiking trails that lead up small mountain peaks that go through river gorges and timbered highlands that are home to grizzly bears, bison, wolves, and elk.

In Yellowstone, glampers can spend the day exploring the geysers and hot springs around Old Faithful or choose one of the more rustic paths that head into the wilderness, many of which lead to waterfalls, lakes, or secret geysers erupting in the pines. The area will also appeal to those with an interest in history, as both West Yellowstone and Ennis are home to historic centers and cultural tours that give a glimpse into the region’s rich, centuries-old past.
