About Mike and Gina Friccero

The cabin was built by Gina's Dad in 1972. A retired Marine, he enjoyed the outdoors and fishing. We have continued to update it and added the new deck. All of the rock work in the fireplace and walls, as well as walkways outside were built by Casey Peru, Gina's Dad. The beautiful light fixtures and one of a kind wooden tables, lamps and cabinets were also built by Casey.

Mike and Gina Friccero purchased this cabin in 1972

Why Mike and Gina Friccero chose Salmon

We inherited this property and all of Casey's amazing work when he passed away a few years back. We decided to rent it so that we can continue to improve and update it.

What makes this cabin unique

Bird watching is amazing. On the flight path for many migratory birds, combined with a large, diverse bird localized population there is always something interesting to see. If you enjoy the back country you can drive or hike to many beautiful areas.

We had to modify our vacation itinerary because of the fires in glacier park. This was totally ad hoc but turned out to be a WONDERFUL alternative. We thoroughly enjoyed this side trip and are considering another trip in the future to complete our exploration of this magnificently beautiful area

This is the perfect place for those who want a quiet cabin away from the hustle and bustle of town!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was clean and well supplied... From hand lotion to coffee! The back deck was the perfect place to observe nature... From mule deer to osprey to blue heron! The cabin is about half way between Salmon and Challis, Idaho... Right on the Salmon River! We would come back in a heartbeat and loved our time in this charming log cabin filled with wonderful handmade furniture and art works...

It was great!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great cabin, that has all you could possibly need. We enjoyed sitting on the terrace, as well as in the comfy chairs in the living room. The kitchen is abundantly equipped, there's speedy wifi, the beds are great (well, we tested only one queen bed).

I recommend this to anyone!

Oke, there is a huge satelite dish in the garden, but no satelite TV, but I don't complain...

Thanks you owners, for letting us stay.
