Not many people know about some of the small towns in Idaho, but Salmon is one that you need to put on your radar or, in this case, on your compass! On the shores of Williams Lake, you'll find an old pirate ship that appears to have crashed onto the beach, but when you get closer, you'll see that this isn't an actual shipwreck; it's an Airbnb.

If you're seeking an adventurous twist for your relationship, the Shipwreck House is a one-of-a-kind experience you won't want to miss. Step aboard this pirate-themed vacation rental with a bottle of rum to set the mood and let the night unfold in unexpected ways. Despite its weathered exterior, the Shipwreck House boasts surprisingly modern amenities, making it a comfortable and unique home away from home.

The deck has a galley kitchen and living area to tell the tales of your past voyages. Send the crew up to the Paradise Deck for bunk beds, a water cannon, and a movie on the projector while you head up to the romantic Captain's Quarters. Featuring a triple-headed shower, pedestal hub, and a fireplace, you'll be in the mood to ride the rough seas.


Salmon is a haven for explorers, offering a diverse range of activities. Paddle along its pristine waters, fish for salmon and trout, or embark on a thrilling hike through its scenic trails. For a more relaxing experience, unwind in the secluded Goldbug Hot Springs under a blanket of stars. History enthusiasts can delve into the rich past of Salmon, including the Lewis and Clark Expedition that passed through in 1805, led by the renowned Sacajawea, a local hero.

The scenic drive from Boise on US-93 is just under five hours long. Salmon is on the outskirts of Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness.
