As A Way of Life

A unique idaho retreat on the salmon river

Mavens’ Haven invites you to restoration and healing on the banks of the Salmon River in Lucile, Idaho. Attend a unique Idaho retreat, relax in a personal getaway, create a family celebration, or facilitate your company training.

Surrounded by National Forests and Wilderness Areas, the Haven is nine miles downstream from Riggins, a popular rafting and fishing destination.

 Guests receive a beautiful space to rest, learn, and rebuild. The main house, deck, and lawn overlook the river. Enjoy the vegetable garden, fruit orchard and grape arbors, chickens, a wood-fired sauna, koi pond, beach with swimming eddy, pickleball court, and Hecate Labyrinth.

Unique accommodations include off-the-grid, custom-built sheep wagons. Each distinctive wagon features a queen-size bed with high-quality linens, wood-burning stove, bench, and table. Outside each wagon, guests have their own area to relax with table and chairs.

We also feature a vintage trailer court with two Alohas and a Silverstream. Each trailer has been refurbished and comfortably outfitted.

Our History

The Haven was founded on the vision of sharing knowledge, the role of a Maven.



From Riggins, Lucile is a few miles north on Highway 95.  After the Lucile Boat ramp, drive another 1/2 mile and turn left at the sign.  Take the RIGHT FORK at the split.  Continue past the Pickleball Court and GO STRAIGHT instead of up the hill to Route 95.  Pull in and park in any open space.
