It was our anniversary, and we wanted to stay somewhere we'd never been before. The beautiful fountain was our first greeting as we entered the driveway. It was August, and the St. Joe was a picturesque treat, both to view and to experience. Our room was country-elegant, and all the accommodations were wonderfully quaint and tasteful, as well as fully...

Their home and views are beautiful and relaxing. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated, and I love waking up to the views. I especially enjoyed the special evening...

Val and Cary were wonderful and even got us reservations at the Cedars. The room was beautiful, the evening treats delicious and the views from our deck spectacular. It was the perfect place for our special weekend.

30 years of marriage is very special, so glad you chose to stay with us to celebrate. It is also very nice how businesses help each other and the Cedar's understood how important your reservation for dinner would be, once we spoke with them.

This was my first trip to Idaho and I really enjoyed it! I stayed 5 nights at St. Joe Riverfront B&B and really enjoyed the wonderful breakfast each morning with a relaxing view of the river. My room was clean and comfortable and the home was beautiful. I look forward to going back soon! Great place to stay.

Deck smelled like dog pee. View is of campers and retaining walls. Noisy; you can hear everything and everyone. Got cold, and they didn't turn the heat on the first day. Toilet ran 24 hours a day. Way overpriced. No privacy.

We had been traveling with family and friends on a motorcycle for a week when we came here. From the first moment we pulled in the driveway, we felt welcome.
