LEWISTON, ID – National Geographic Traveler magazine has named the River Dance Lodge to its first annual "Stay List." Selected from more than 600 nominated hotels and resorts in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Caribbean region, the River Dance Lodge is the sole Idaho property on the list.
According to the magazine, the Stay List showcases properties with location-inspired architecture, ambience and amenities, eco-stewardship, and an ethic of giving back to the community. Featured locations are also recognized for promoting authenticity and a sense of place. After receiving nominations and input from local travel experts and seasoned travelers, the magazine's editors compiled in-depth questionnaires and conducted extensive research before selecting the top 150 properties for the 2008 Stay List.
The River Dance Lodge is eight custom log cabins overlooking Idaho's Clearwater River, one of the original rivers designated "Wild and Scenic" by Congress in 1968. The lodge partners with ROW Adventures (http://www.ROWadventures.com), a Coeur d'Alene-based adventure travel company, to offer guests guided fly fishing, whitewater rafting, horseback riding and hiking tours of the area.
"We deliver an authentic Idaho wilderness experience," said Vincent Rosan, general manager of the River Dance Lodge. "We hire locally, support our community and offer a broad range of outdoor pursuits. And after an exciting day whitewater rafting, fly fishing or horseback riding, our guests retire to the rustic luxury of their custom log cabins and private hot tubs."
