Welcome to Salmon, Idaho and the Greyhouse Inn Bed and Breakfast !! We offer you the best quality lodging at a reasonable price in the Salmon, Idaho area, guaranteed!! This year, please allow us to help plan your Staycation.
We are located in Idaho's Central Mountains; smack dab between the Salmon River Mountains and the Lemhi Range. Oh yes!, and we can almost see the Bitterroots from here. This is a nature-lover's paradise with activities for all ages including white water river rafting, hiking, salmon fishing, hunting and exploring local history.
Looking for lodging at a child friendly hotel? We invite you to choose our bed and breakfast; the Greyhouse Inn Bed and Breakfast. Sharon and David Osgood, innkeepers at the Greyhouse Inn Bed and Breakfast, extend their warmest heartfelt greetings to all. We will do our upmost to make your stay interesting, warm, friendly and comfortable. And that isn't all. Wait until you sit down to our full country breakfast of berry or banana pancakes, Belgian waffles, and fresh ranch eggs, served with juice, freshly ground coffee, hot chocolate, tea or milk. Take a look at the variety of accommodations we offer in our country inn: cozy, charming rooms in the Victorian house. Or, if privacy is to your liking, try one of our cottages: the Carriage House or the Lewis or Clark Cabin. Have a family? You can bring 'em all and stay in the Lemhi Shoshone or the Trapper Cabin.
The Salmon River and surrounding mountains give us unique, unsurpassed natural beauty with many interesting places to visit. So, while you are here, we suggest you try whitewater rafting on the Salmon River. We can arrange your float trip with one of our local river guides for a half day, full day, or several days. If whitewater is not your "bag," perhaps horseback riding will tickle your fancy. We can arrange it. Ask us about our package deals! Do we have your attention yet? If not, try our steelhead fishing, big game hunting, hiking, hot spring bathing, birding - it's all near to the Greyhouse Inn Bed and Breakfast. We've had visitors celebrate anniversaries, get married, and even give birth to a baby at the Inn, though we don't encourage that!
If "getting away from it all" interests you, then by all means, include Salmon, Idaho in your travel lodging plans. Geographically, the Greyhouse Inn Bed and Breakfast is located a couple of miles north of the 45th parallel, about one hundred and sixty miles south of Missoula, Montana, and roughly the same distance from Idaho Falls, Idaho. Both are big cities to us. We are close to the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness, the largest wilderness in the lower 48 states. In other words, Wal-Mart is not doable here. But, on the other hand, if open spaces and ghost towns turn you on, then come check out Bannack, Montana and some of the others.
Lewis and Clark traveled into Idaho through Lemhi Pass on their way to the Pacific in August 1805. The Lewis and Clark Expedition Trail through Lemhi County is undeveloped and remains much like it was in 1805. We can provide transportation for our visitors to view campsites and trail sites, or we have a self-guided motor tour pamphlet if you want to explore on your own. Sacajawea was born near here in Lemhi County. Her people are known as the Lemhi band of the Shoshoni Indians. Sacajawea Heritage Days are an annual event held in the Sacajawea Interpretive, Cultural, and Education Center.
