Looking for a little piece of Heaven on Earth? Moose Creek Estates might just be THE PLACE for you. Nestled deep in the woods, backing up to a National Forest, this pristine land offers beautiful trees, streams and wildlife. The developers are fighting mightily to maintain and even improve upon what Nature so generously has given us. We were impressed with the conservation program and plans for further expansion. Each homesite is unique.
We visited in the "Dead of Winter" and experienced the beauty of fresh fallen snow glistening in the moonlight as we sat dreamily by a warm fire, wine glasses in hand, snug as the proverbial bugs in a rug. The air is crisp, the sky is vast and the people are unbelievably friendly. What's more, they are anxious to share their little slice of paradise with those lucky enough to be invited. We met so many talented craftsmen and women who shared their knowledge of this unsung area of Idaho. We are anxious to return to experience this wonderful spot in other seasons as well!
