Cougar Mountain Lodge & Restaurant was built in 1941 in the beautiful Smiths Ferry Valley on the Payette River. We have 7 upstairs rooms that are rustic and cozy. We do not offer TV or room phones but we do have WIFI and most phones receive cell service. Downstairs there is a lodge lobby, a convince store and a restaurant. There is whitewater rafting, fishing and hiking in the summer and in the winter there is snowmobiling and we are less than an hour away from several ski resorts.
