Galena Lodge | Sun Valley Voices & Views, Stephanie Reed Real Estate


– Hi, I’m Stephanie Reed with
Stephanie Reed Real Estate and you’re watching the “Voices & Views” where we celebrate the people and places that make our community amazing. Today we’re 23 miles north of Sun Valley at the Galena Lodge where you can experience
amazing outdoor adventures as well as cozy up in the lodge and eat delicious food and drink. I’m here with Erin Zell and we’re gonna hear
all about what they do. So when somebody comes up here, what do they expect to experience? – Well, the first thing that they notice is that there’s no cell service. After the initial panic is over, they’re usually pretty excited because that means no one
can get in touch with them. Our lives are very busy and so what we hope to offer up here is a place for them to reboot. Galena Lodge is home base
for many outdoor adventures. Skate skiing, cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, hiking, biking and of course, the back
country yard experiences. – What would be some
of your top experiences that you want people to take away? – Galena is a community-owned gem that is just one of a kind. It has something for everybody. Just spend the day here. Like go out, do an activity, come back, have a hot chocolate and then go back out again and then come back in and have lunch. – [Stephanie] So let’s talk a little bit about the restaurant because it has great ambience but it also has amazing food. – So I married well. (chuckling) Don and everyone that works
in the kitchen are incredible. We just try to give people the opportunity to have good food and enjoy themselves. – And a good beer, a glass of wine. – A mean cocktail.
– A mean cocktail. – [Erin] We do have this little bar. – This community’s pretty amazing. When it has a passion, and it gets behind it,
it amazingly sustains it. – It’s a very generous
community and it is. When they have something that
they can sink their teeth into and be a part of. It means as much to them as it does to us. ♪ I, I, I’ve got these growing pains ♪ ♪ When the storm wind blows ♪ ♪ On the weather vane ♪ – I’ve looked for this
place so many times, I wanna be that person that’s on the couch right
now reading their book with a Baileys and hot chocolate. Like I want that. And I think that it’s such a special treat to have this community-owned small lodge. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. – Thank you for joining us, Erin. I really, really appreciate it. I look forward to coming
back up and seeing you. And thank you so much for
watching the “Voices & Views.”
