Directions to the Retreat Location

The Alta Vista House 111 Council Court at Tamarack Resort

The turn-off to Tamarack Resort occurs off Hwy 55 in Donnelly, Idaho, at the Stinker Station. You will be turning West on Roseberry Road. From the turn-off on Hwy 55, proceed heading west on Roseberry Road for 4 miles. Roseberry Road will dead end at West Mountain Road, turn left (south) and head another 3.5 miles to the entrance at Tamarack. You are now on Village Drive. Village Drive turns into Discovery Drive once you pass the round-about at the Lodge and main Village parking lot. Continue on Discovery Drive to Pinnacle and make a right hand turn. Pinnacle will turn into a “Y” at the very top and you want to stay to the left of the “Y”, which reads Council Court. This home is located on the far left side of the cul-de-sac backing to the hillside.
