The Diamond D Ranch is nestled in a valley in the Frank Church Wilderness and is surrounded by the Salmon River mountains. Many of our guests enjoy cracking a window at night and listening to the sounds of the bubbling stream and the wind in the trees from the comfort of their cabin. The Diamond D Ranch offers modern accommodations including three two-bedroom cabins (each holding six people), one large four-bedroom cabin which will sleep ten, two suites (Honeymoon and Ranch suites), each holding a single or couple comfortably. All cabins and suites have a private bathroom and porch or deck with views of golden sunrises, rippling aspen, fields of wildflowers, and horses galloping across the meadows, and star filled skies. The main lodge has five lodge rooms. Part of the main Lodge was built in the very early 1900’s, which was the original Coleman homestead house. In 1916, what is our present living room, was added onto the lodge as a post office, dance hall, saloon, and restaurant. The Demorest family first came onto the ranch in 1951 with plans of developing the ranch as a guest ranch knowing there was lots of hard work to do. In 1961 Tom Demorest continued to add to the lodge, by developing a kitchen area, bathroom facilities, and dining room (which expanded the first floor of the lodge by 50%). Now the lodge serves as the main gathering area for dining, games, and fireside conversation.

Food & Dining

A variety of taste-tempting meals are served family style in the lodge dining room or at outdoor poolside barbecues. Breakfasts range from hot oatmeal, fresh fruit selections, yogurts, special breads, to French toast, pancakes, eggs and bacon, biscuits & gravy, waffles, and beautiful quiches. A few examples of lunches are homemade soups, Mediterranean cuisine, tacos, French dips and other gourmet sandwiches and sides. Dinners range from Italian dinners of spaghetti, lasagna, eggplant or veal parmesan to prime rib, ham dinner, turkey dinner, Lemon chicken, seafood linguini, surf and turf, and much more!!! Breads and deserts are baked fresh daily and are irresistible. ***WE DO SELL A NICE SELECTION OF WINE AND BEER*** but hard liquor is not available. You are welcome to bring your own if you wish. There are mini-fridges in each of the cabins and suites.


The Diamond D Ranch is situated in the largest wilderness area in the lower 48 states. The Frank Church Wilderness is approximately 2.4 million acres. There is an endless amount of country and wildlife to see, streams to fish and mountains in which to hike or horseback ride. The Diamond D Ranch offers several activities daily, however participation is completely up to the individual. Two guided trailrides are offered most days with the exception of an all day lunch ride on Fridays. A full day guided hike is offered on Wednesdays to one of many beautiful destinations, including Mystery Lake, Owens Hotsprings, and Summitt Ridge. Lake and Stream fishing is always a popular activity. Loon creek has been noted as one of the best fly fishing streams in Idaho and we have had many return guests because of that. Please inquire about our fly fishing/pack trips and fly fishing/backpacking trips. Our standard pack trips are three to five days, however given enough notice we can make other arrangements. Some of our other activities include gold panning, horseshoe pits, volleyball, archery, target and skeet shooting, barbecues, campfires, swimming in our pool, or relaxing in our hot tub, wonderful wildlife viewing and scenic trips.

Kid's Programs

Being in the wild west is a very exciting adventure for children. Our staff tries to make everyday fun and memorable for the children by offering western lore of the area, a variety of crafts, nature walks, gold panning and other adventures. Some of our staff members have even been known to strap on a head lamp and take the kids in search of Night Crawlers in the moonlight. Children six years and older may participate in the above activities (under recreation). For children under six, there are supervised games, swimming, pony rides, etc. For the very young, three and under, there is baby-sitting available.
