7 Devils Lodge & Ranch

Located in central Idaho, just south of the Seven Devils mountain range, the Seven Devils Lodge lies in a unique area, neighboring jutting canyons, high desert, and soaring mountains. The Seven Devils range runs between the Salmon River and Hells Canyon. The Lodge is just nine miles, as the crow flies, from Hells Canyon, known as the deepest canyon in North America.  One of the few guest ranches in the state operating on an actual working cattle ranch, Seven Devils Lodge sits on the historic OX Ranch. Unique enough to be the subject of the popular book, A Wild Cowboy, the OX Ranch is rich in history and western culture.  A working ranch since the early 1900′s, it was founded by Albert Campbell.Campbell’s family owned one of the biggest ranches in the northwest, the Circle C Ranch in New Meadows, Idaho. Albert had dreams of his own ranch and a love for the mountains, which led him to the OX. In 1982 the current owners bought the ranch and the Lodge, driven by a desire to own and preserve a piece of the old west for future generations to enjoy. We invite you to go to the OX page for more information on the historic ranch and see some of the actual cattle operation.

Seven Devils Lodge is a  5500 sq ft facility with 6 spacious bedroom suites: The Boss, The Angler, The Hunter, The Trapper, The Cowboy and The Gardener. Each room has been uniquely decorated, using themes from the surrounding great outdoors. Additionally, most of the rooms have an assortment of sleeping arrangements with multiple beds, cots and sofa beds. In this way, the Lodge is well suited for retreats, wedding parties, or family reunions, as it can sleep up to 20 people easily. Apart from group retreats, the ideal group size is  6-8 guests at a time.  If you book a stay with 6 or more in we reserve the rest of the lodge for your friends or family.  This works great for business retreats or friends/family get-a-ways. We provide home style meals and strive to deliver tasty and healthy options, using many foods right from our organic gardens and orchard. WATCH A VIDEO OF THE LODGE
