PLAN YOUR TRAVEL
There are several options to get to Scotlyn Ranch Resort. We provide complimentary transportation from any of the airports listed below. Most of the drives from the airports are extremely scenic and you will be able to enjoy cold beverages (including beer and wine) while enjoying the scenery on the way to and from the resort.
COMMERCIAL AIR TRAVEL
The closest regional airport is Lewiston, Idaho (LWS), a little over an hour drive away. Delta/SkyWest is the only national carrier that services Lewiston. On the drive from Lewiston to the resort, we will travel along the Clearwater river making for a comfortable and beautiful trip.
Other Airports Options:
Pullman, Washington (PUW) – Airline: Alaska. Drive Time: 1:45, Similar route as from Lewiston.
Spokane, Washington (GEG) – Airlines: Alaska, American, Delta, United, Southwest, and Frontier. Drive Time: 3 hours, The route will take you through Lewiston and the last 45 minutes will be along the Clearwater River.
Missoula, Montana (MSO) – Airlines: Alaska, Delta, American, United, and Frontier. Drive Time: 3.5 hours, This option provides a stunning drive through the Bitterroot National Forest, and going through Lolo Pass on your way to the resort. If you choose to arrive from Missoula, we highly recommend planning your flights so that your drive is during daylight hours, as this is a road trip you will want to see the sights!
If you are traveling from Seattle or Boise, we recommend driving. Seattle is approximately a 6-hour drive and Boise is a 4.5-hour drive. Charter flights are also available from these locations, please see below.

Lewiston, Idaho (KLWS) is also an option if you need a larger runway (6,511×150 ft).

WHAT TO BRING
Scotlyn Ranch Resort provides most everything you will need outside of clothing and toiletries (we do have a stock of regular toiletries if you forget something!). You will need clothing appropriate to the activities you will be doing. The weather in Idaho can vary greatly season to season, be sure to check the weather before you leave.
Even in the summer, it can be quite warm during the day (80-95 degrees F) and cool down in the evenings, so a light pullover or windbreaker is highly recommended. Due to the wide variety of activities, a variety of footwear is also recommended: Hiking Boots, Tennis Shoes, Water Shoes. Layering is also a good idea for any time of the year due to the wide variety of weather you may encounter – it is not uncommon to have a cold morning followed by a very warm afternoon and then a cool evening.
Wi-Fi and Cell Service – Verizon and AT&T work well at our Lodge and on much of the upper part of the ranch. Sprint and other carriers have limited or no coverage. We have excellent Wi-Fi at the Lodge and in the Cabins.
