About Us

Don and Erin met in Virginia at James Madison University in 1995 where we were both studying physical therapy and perfecting the art of playing. The snow, mountains and adventures took us away from Virginia and first brought us to Oregon, where Don went to culinary school, and then in 2000 to Idaho where we have been living the dream! We have been lucky enough to operate Galena Lodge since 2006.

About the Loaner Dogs. Some of our customers favorite things about Galena Lodge are the loaner dogs. Zeke has been packing out snowshoe trails and leading lonely dog lovers on amazing hikes in both the winter and summer months. But now he has a new partner in crime, Bandit! If Bandit is around the lodge he would love to follow you on a hike or snowshoe adventure. Just ask one of our friendly staff members! Sadie our best loaner dog ever passed away this past March and  we miss her dearly. The loaner dogs say “Come up and visit!”
