Walk on the Wild Side Bed and Breakfast combines the atmosphere of staying in a 1930's Idaho ranch house with all of today's modern conveniences. "Wild Side" is located in picturesque Garden Valley, Idaho, just an hour and a half from downtown Boise

Originally known as the Beck ranch house, "Wild Side" sits on five acres with frontage on the Middle Fork of the Payette River.

Our unique location affords our guests the opportunity to observe many of Idaho's diverse wildlife from the comfort of their private bedrooms or while sitting in our living room. Wild elk and deer wander our property to graze while across the river you can watch herds of elk belonging to Elk Springs Ranch. Geese and ducks are abundant along the river in addition to bald eagles, hawks, quail and numerous other bird species. Throw in the occasional coyote, fox, porcupine and otter and you can truly "walk on the wild side."

Like to hike, cross country ski or snowmobile? "Wild Side" is located one mile from the entrance to the Boise National Forest with its numerous hot springs and miles of trails. Float or paddle the Middle Fork in a canoe, kayak or raft from the Tie Creek Campground to the town of Crouch (approx. 8 miles) but be sure to wave to us as you go past! For those more adventurous or experienced, whitewater is just around the bend on the South Fork of the Payette. Several outfitters offer whitewater raft trips on the South Fork and the Payette rivers. Enjoy this beautiful wilderness country from the back of a horse. Horseback trail rides are available at Garden Valley Trail Rides or, if you own your own horse, "Wild Side" offers corral and stable facilities. Or golf at Terrace Lakes Resort. Then relax and unwind -- massage therapy is available at Wild Side by appointment.
