About Ridlon & Carin Kiphart
As The Adventure Couple, we have over 20 years experience in the luxury hotel industry and wanted to create a mountain lodge retreat with the look and feel of the 5-Star western lodges we have stayed at over the years. In the summer, we spend time on the outdoor decks, love watching the abundant wildlife on the property, go hiking and enjoy a glass of wine in the hot tub. In the winter, we love the skiing (downhill and x country) and chilling out by the fireplace. Every year, we travel and guide people to the most exotic places in the world but always look forward to coming back to our mountain lodge home. The Bitterroot Valley grabbed us with its stunning grandeur, access to millions of acres of National Forests, friendly people and absolute wealth of outdoor activities. We drove the Rocky Mountains from New Mexico to Canada looking for our mountain home and this is what we chose. We love it dearly.

Why Ridlon & Carin Kiphart chose Darby
As The Adventure Couple, we have worked in luxury adventure travel all around the globe including two decades in the American West. So when we decided to create our perfect vacation home, we knew we wanted a special retreat. We wanted to create a unique experience blending our knowledge of the finest lodges and resorts from over 100 countries around the world. The home is equal parts luxury western lodge, private relaxing retreat and grand adventure headquarters mixed with a majestic dose of inspiration. Starting with an architect designed, custom log home, we drew inspiration from luxury boutique resorts like Relais and Chateau and Small Luxury Hotels of the World. So the home is outfitted with the finest bedding, hand crafted western furnishings from top designers, a unique selection of indigenous art from around the globe and award-winning nature photography. 360 degree majestic mountain views of the Continental Divide, Bitterroot Mountains and Sapphire Mountains. You stare at Trapper Peak from every room in the house and over 1200 SF of decks. 23 acres to roam on and wildlife right in the yard. The Bitterroot River and blue ribbon fly fishing is minutes away. National Forest on three sides of the home. And at the heart of all of it, a beautifully finished and furnished, custom log home.
