Are you looking to plan a romantic getaway in Idaho with your partner? If so, you’ve come to the right place. For those of us lucky to live in Idaho, we don’t have to travel too far! Whether you’re looking for a rustic backcountry experience or fine dining at world-class restaurants, the Gem State has it all. Here are some of my favorite romantic getaways in Idaho to guarantee an awesome time in Idaho with your loved one.
1 - Glamp in a Yurt
Easier than camping but with the same wilderness feel, yurt stays are not just for nomads in Mongolia anymore. I think you can actually Google the name of any destination in Idaho followed by “yurt” and voila - it exists! These structures are popular here for good reason - they are relatively simple to build in remote settings and provide good protection from the cold.
If you are looking for somewhere close to Boise, try a yurt near Idaho City, Galena Summit, or McCall. My boyfriend and I went to this yurt outside of McCall last Valentine's Day (get a discount on your Airbnb stay here) and it was one of our favorite memories together. Read all about our trip here on Visit Idaho's site. Please note that many are accessible only by skis or snowshoes around this time of the year, so prepare accordingly. Also prepare for primitive bathrooms, a wood-powered heating source, and lots of coziness! Some yurts are also open all year round and can allow easy access to the summer nature!
