Environmental & Social Practices

  • Environment

  • The goal of the Kapp-Singer families, who purchased the Ranch in 2005, is to be 'authentic' in all areas, -- architecture, activities, food, entertainment and an option to 'unplug'.  Exemplary of this is the artful renovation of the Lodge and Cabins, on the National Register of Historic Places, that honors this designation, with architectural details preserved and improvements made that speak to the Ranch's history and connect guests to a unique western experience. 

    The Ranch guest season is mid-June to mid-September. White water rafting is best early in June, July and early August, hiking, fishing, mountain biking and horseback riding are available all season, with spring's onset influencing availability of the higher elevation destinations.

Ranch Recipe

    Idaho Morel Mushroom and Oregon White Cheddar Potato Au Gratin
    6 servings

    Ingredients
    4 Large Idaho Russet Potatoes, peeled and sliced about 1/8 inch thick
    ¼ Cup Unsalted Butter
    1 Cup Idaho Fresh Morel Mushrooms (you may substitute any tasty fresh mushroom, please no buttons)
    2 Garlic Cloves, minced
    ¼ Cup Marsala Wine
    Kosher Salt and Fresh Ground Black Pepper
    ¼ Cup Parmesan Reggiano
    ¼ Cup Tillamook White Cheddar
    1½ Cups Heavy Cream

    Procedure
    Preheat oven to 350.
    Put potato slices in bowl of water to cover so they don’t discolor while you prepare the dish. Rub 1 Tablespoon of butter around 10-inch gratin dish or glass pie pan.
    Sauté the rest of butter, mushrooms and garlic for 5 minutes on medium-high heat. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Deglaze with Marsala wine for 30 seconds. Turn off heat and let mushrooms chill to room temp.
    Mix cheeses.
    Arrange a layer of potatoes, drained and patted dry, in a slightly overlapping fashion, in bottom of gratin dish. Season the potatoes with a good pinch of salt and pepper and a little cheese. Continue layering the potatoes and cheese in this manner, seasoning each layer and finishing with the cheese (you should have at least 3 layers). Spread the mushroom mixture evenly before you put down the last layer of potatoes. Drizzle the cream along the sides of the dish, so as not to displace the cheese.
    Place the gratin, uncovered, on the top oven rack and bake for 1 to 1¼ hours, or until the cram has been absorbed and the top is crispy and golden. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
    *Recognize that both cheeses are fairly salty when seasoning each layer.

We're extremely proud of Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch's rich history, and each of the 4 families who have nurtured and preserved its heritage since it's inception in 1930. Constructed of native lodgepole pine by a crew of 60 men including stonemasons and iron workers, the Ranch is listed on The National Register of Historic Places. 

In February 2005, the IRMR was acquired by the Kapp-Singer families. Owners Steve and Courtney Kapp, and David Singer and Diana Kapp, all hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing and fly fishing enthusiasts, fell in love with the Sawtooths and their endless recreation possibilities. Their passion to restore authentic details shows in the artfully renovated Lodge and cabins, which honor the Ranch’s historic integrity, while enhancing the guest experience.

  • Sandra Beckwith, Lodge Manager, discovered the Ranch in 1994, seeking a 2nd utopia after spending several years in an idyllic location on the baja peninsula.  The magical setting of the Ranch, the limitless outdoor activities available, the palpable sense of history and the incredible people -- both residents and guests -- who are attracted to the Sawtooth region made this her second paradise.  Over the years, friendships have deepened as has appreciation for the Ranch and area, shared with family, friends and guests alike.  Introducing others to this relatively undiscovered paradise has become Sandra's passion.  

    Bill Leavell, Ranch Property Manager, returned to the Sawtooth Valley in 1980, a family favorite vacation spot. Early seasonal jobs at nearby Busterback Ranch and guiding river, cultural and mountain adventures in the western US, Canada, Peru, Chile and New Zealand eventually led to his current position at Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch. The return to the Sawtooth Valley over Galena Pass was always accompanied by a sigh of gratitude and awe to live in such a spectacular environment.

    Bill's two children were raised at the Ranch, attending the two room schoolhouse in Stanley. Two grandchildren now bless his life. River, ski, mountain bike and climbing adventures, along with nature and historical studies continue as his passions. Bill brings a local source of knowledge to guests at the Ranch, ranging from the easy hike to the high peaks, flowers to trees, mice to moose. And which mountain bike trail you don't want to ride is his forte. We invite you to enjoy in planning and sharing our mutual passions.

Offsite Activities

  • The Ranch is in the heart of the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, surrounded by more wilderness than anywhere else in the continental United States. There are hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails, lakes and fishing streams, and a host of outdoor recreational activies, including rock climbing, guided fishing (walk and wade and floats), white water rafting in the Salmon and Payette Rivers, kayaking and canoeing at nearby Redfish Lake, visits to Custer and Bonanza ghost towns, local museums, and even a trip to Sun Valley, Idaho for upscale retail therapy, if desired. Our staff assists each guest in choosing and arranging their activities. Offsite activities require a vehicle.
