Jefferson View Lodge is named for the majestic mountain view enjoyed by many while relaxing on the patio with family and friends. Jefferson View is a great place for families & friends to kick back, relax and enjoy the lake! With jet skiing, boating and snowmobiling always an option, you will never become bored. Idaho is home to some of the greatest fishing in the country. With rivers and lakes within driving distance, the only thing better than relaxing on the deck at the lodge, is touring the riverbanks looking for the next big catch!

About Julie Wilcox

The Wilcox family is native to Rexburg, ID and has enjoyed the Island Park area for many years. We love coming to Island Park for the great getaway that it is, offering lakeside enjoyment with the comforts of home. When we come to the cabin, some of our favorite things to do are boating, hiking, fishing, snowmobiling, and just spending time with the family!

Julie Wilcox purchased this lodge in 2010

Why Julie Wilcox chose Island Park

Island Park (Bills Island in particular) is a great vacation spot, which is why we bought these properties when we did. They are remote enough to help us feel as though we are getting away from the world. However, we are close enough to other larger areas, so that shopping and emergencies are taken care of!

What makes this lodge unique

The lodge is a great place to get away for the weekend or to plan as an extended stay. With all the comforts of home and the magnificent kitchen, large groups can be accomodated easily. We know it's nice having some peace and quiet as well as play areas for the kids, so we love that the lodge has multiple entertainment rooms and sitting areas on each floor.

Absolutely stunning property!

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely stunning! It is lovelier than the pictures. We felt "at home" from the moment we entered the lodge. Our large family fit very well in the 8 bedrooms, and with the many large gathering areas we never felt like we were crowded anywhere. The view of the lake from the large deck just outside of the kitchen/living room is stunning; watching the sun set at night was gorgeous. Having a private dock for our boat was wonderful; we only had to put the boat in once and take it out again at the end of the week! No one wanted to leave! We even had a moose to greet us as we arrived! The owners were wonderful to work with and had thought of everything we might need! Two stoves, two microwaves, two refrigerators, and two sinks made meal prep for so many people very easy. A lovely vacation in a wonderful home in a truly beautiful part of the country! Our favorite saying this week? "It truly doesn't get much better than this!"

Beautiful property - We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a family reunion with 18 people. It was spectacular! We were from Illinois, Colorado, California and Idaho. We had a couple of excursions planned in the area. But when it came down to leaving the house, more than 1/2 of us chose to stay on the property because we were so relaxed and were enjoying just being there. We loved how all of the cupboards and drawers were labeled in the kitchen. Made it so easy to put things away after they had been washed. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. We also had s'mores around the fire pit every night. There were so many different areas to play games or just sit around and visit. We spent a lot of time on the deck and in the lake. The only room in the house that we didn't use was the child's toy room as our youngest was 9. But it looked like it was fully stocked with great toys. This place was just beautiful and perfect. I hope to be able to come back again some time.

family reunion

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place even better than the pictures We had our family come from multiple states to meet here. Everyone had their own space. You don't have to think of anything except clothes, sunscreen, and groceries. The place is fully stocked and ready to cook for an army- spices and all. Moms, there is a play room, high chairs, crib and playpen so travel just got lighter. Just enjoy and replenish what you use up.

Best house for large family gathering. Best kitchen. Best views. Best location.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home yesterday from our stay here. Loved it! We will definitely be returning. We had 12 adults and 10 children and we had plenty, plenty room. One thing that helped is that there are five different group areas: large family room, theater room, large game room, play room and upstairs TV area with large sectional. With teenagers down to toddlers, this set up was fantastic. There was a place for everyone when kids needed a break from each other by the end of the day. A few of the the bedrooms are very large and easily fit a porta-crib. NOTE: the large lakeside basement bedroom has the most amazing view; we were fighting over it.

But the thing that really made this place so perfect and workable for our large group was the kitchen. It is THE best, most practical kitchen we have seen in all the times we have rented large houses/cabins. Two of every large appliance. Two sinks. Large island that easily seats 9 -- the kids loved that. AND...it is the best stocked kitchen of any rental we have had. Honestly, they have thought of everything from multiple aprons, to multiple cookie sheets, to numerous cooking and serving utensils. Even supplies to make cupcakes. Hello! They have gone above and beyond in stocking the kitchen. All of the furniture is quality and in great condition. The location on Bill's Island is perfect. Being right on the lake with our own dock was great because we could go out on the lake with our rental kayaks and float tubes several times a day. We also liked using the fire pit by the lake in the evenings. For activities we went to Yellowstone, floated the Snake river in rafts.
