Very private and peaceful! The River Cabin overlooks the unspoiled Moyie River.  Enjoy walking in the forest or sitting  by the river to enjoy the beauty of North Idaho.  The cabin is surrounded by the Selkirk and Cabinet Mountains and is private with no view of neighbors property and is situated in a 15.4 acre Certified Family Forest.  If you hear the rumble of a train at night it's because the Union Pacific passes along the opposite edge of the property from the cabin. There is No Mobile Phone Service.  A land phone line is available nearby on an outside wall of host’s cabin for 24/7 Emergency Use and personal use with a prepaid calling card.  There are lots of wildlife on and around the property.

The log cabin has electricity, a small refrigerator with freezer compartment, electric heat, a hot plate, a Keurig coffeemaker and toaster oven. It has a set of twin size bunk beds, sofa and a small loft that could be used as an additional small sleeping area.  The outhouse is nearby. The cabin does not have water, but a spigot at the host's cabin provides fresh well water;  a short haul to the cabin.  A small wagon is on-site for moving larger water containers.  A camp site sized area between the cabin and river overlook has a fire pit, covered shelter, featuring a USFS-style charcoal grill, benches and picnic table.

Size wise it is ideal for a couple.  There is also room for a small tent site near the fire pit area and a larger tent site across from the cabin for additional guests.

Very nice, well-appointed cabin with electricity, fridge, toaster, 2 coffee makers, electric heater, vacuum and more. Everything is essentially in new condition. What is not yet listed by the host Paul is that there is also a covered BBQ area with picnic table and a stone fireplace, extra bench that has recently been constructed. The river runs fast (Memorial weekend) and deep, so I would not recommend this to a family with young children, but my partner and I give this two thumbs up for those who want to glam camp. ;-)

George, I am very happy your first experience at our "River Cabin" at Iron Horse Family Forest was a great holiday weekend Hipcamp experience for you and your friend! As you noted we are still improving both the cabin and nearby camp site. The heavy snow pack put us behind schedule on our projects. I am glad they are far enough along you got some enjoyment from them ....hopefully all complete by mid June. Thanks for beating me by adding them to the site description. Far North Idaho is a special place and I hope you can visit us again in the future! Cheers, Paul

My husband and I absolutely loved it! It was so beautiful and very private and quiet. It is the perfect size for a couple or very small family. We will definitely be going back!

Our stay was far beyond anything we could have hoped for. It is the perfect get away for anyone looking to unplug and just relax by an amazing river view. The cabin is exactly what you need, and is kept up very well. Pair that with a covered cooking and eating area and you have the best place for a relaxing trip.

Craver, We are glad your trip up North was all you expected. Come back and see us this Fall.. The s’mores taste better with a cool nip in the air. Paul

We just got home from our quick trip to the Iron Horse River cabin, and we had a fantastic time. I took my mom and our pups for a little trip over the holiday weekend to relax before the school year started and it was exactly what we hoped and expected. It was very private, quite and just the most beautiful little spot on the Movie River. Your friends that were visiting were just so sweet and we really enjoyed chatting with them. We had a fantastic time, thank you Paul.

Katie, Thank you for your feedback ! The River Cabin is a special place and we are glad we can share it with others. Also thanks for your picture posts, the bird on the fence post is a very creative shot. We hope you can come back again. Glad you brought your pups; we have feedback that HipPups love the cabin and river too. Paul
