About Tony Bowler

We have lived in Hageraman Valley for almost 40 years. Whether it is the mornings or afternoons, the beauty of this area is breathtaking. We live here because the Snake River provides a visual and soulful experience, we can't live without.

Tony Bowler purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Tony Bowler chose Idaho

The River Cabin is a lovely place to stay. We have furnished it with everything to make a vacation rental comfortable and entertaining. The landscaping is ideal for yard games, sunbathing, picnicking, campfires and it's beautifully nestled into it's own secluded location.

What makes this cottage unique

WATERFRONT WITH A DOCK - Wakeboarding and Skiing,

canoes, swimming, fishing and anything else to do with the water. Seven miles of Upper Salmon Falls Creek Reservoir for your pleasure. Blue Heart Springs is the 19th largest fresh-water spring in the world and is always an amazing place to visit. Bird-watching, photography, an artists dream of color and shape, so much make this a spectacular place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was a very nice two bedroom cabin. Great beds and pillows and wonderful view of the snake river. Getting up in the morning and having coffee on the dock you are treated to the best water foul show around.

Will be coming back. Great day trips from the location. Hots Springs, tour the fish farms, and not far from ice caves. Management was excellent to work with. Don and Susan give it 5 stars. Aug 12th to Aug 17th 2013

The cabin is beautiful! ! Love the location too.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Hagerman. Ducks and geese everywhere. They were obviously migrating through.

The home is really, really nice. Stocked with everything. Very comfortable. We enjoyed the BBQ grill.

The cabin is located in a great area. Oregon trail is just up the street. Actually this house may sit on a part of the trail. My Grandson was able to have a little history lesson while on vacation.

Really enjoyed our little visits from Olive the canine. She is polite and really nice. That was a real treat to see her when she had time!!

Your information book was really helpful. Thank you for that!!

Looking forward to our next visit at the cabin!

Just Lovely..

  • 5 of 5

The river cabin was enjoyable, very comfortable and clean and most of all relaxing. There were apples and plums on the trees at the cabin and Tony was so kind and let us pick at will. The river was full of waterfowl and we even had a muskrat swim by. We explored all around the Magic Valley and is was very fascinating and fun. We learned many things about fossils, trout, sturgeons, cows, corn, aquaculture and agriculture. The most moving was walking on the Oregon Trail Ruts just up the road from the cabin in the Hagerman Fossil Beds. The weather was perfect but the last night there we were treated to a spectacular lightning show, we turned out the lights and watched from the living room as the lightning reflected from the sky and river. We also visited the local creamery, yummy ice cream in generous portions and cheese curds too. This place is definitely on our "go back too" list. Thank you Tony and Olive for sharing your cabin with us and our boxers dogs, till we meet again!

This was our second year staying at the river cabin, and it exceeds our expectations. The setting is spectacular, and everything we need is there. The bonus is that the hosts are super friendly and very accommodating. We look forward to coming back again!

Camping and fishing made easy!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our cabin stay at The River Cabin. We did not expect to have

all the comforts of home. It was like staying with family. The river was

gorgeous and there was a surprising number of varied waterfowl on the

river ranging from a half dozen small duck species, to large cranes and

pelicans. It was amazing. The cabin was very comfortable and we did not

need to pack nearly as many camping accessories as we did. It was all there.

Hope to be back at the cabin next year. Thanks for such a nice weekend get a way!

2. Fishing - trout, bass, crappie, crayfish, sturgeon

3. Boating - 2 long and deep reservoirs for wakeboarding, skiing and sightseeing

5. Historic places of interest - Thousand Springs, Balanced Rock, Hagerman Fossil Beds, Oregon Trail, Blue Heart Springs, City of the Rocks and much more.

6. Public access - 9 Idaho state parks, boat ramps, fishing for everyone including ADA, walking trails and scenic overlooks.

Hagerman Valley was formed 40,000 to 50,000 years ago by two separate geological events.

1.The Bonneville Flood was a torrent of biblical proportion that cut through Utah, Idaho and Washington. Hagerman Valley was scoured by BILLIONS of gallons of water, hundreds of feet deep.

2. At the same time, The Great Rift Lava Flow released mile after mile of flowing lava that blanketed what is now South-Central Idaho. When the flowing lava encountered the high water of the Bonneville Flood, the vertical lava walls of Hagerman Valley were formed.

The lava flow also created the Snake River Basin Aquifer and the pure water originating from as far as Yellow Stone Park and the Teton Mountains of Wyoming, pours out of Hagerman Valley's lava walls into the Snake River. This is called Thousand Springs and these magnificant springs can be found up and down Hagerman Valley for 30 miles.
