About Moose Creek Estates, Premier Idaho Mountain Real Estate For Sale
We at Moose Creek Estates (MCE) are dedicated to providing exclusive Idaho investment / recreational land for sale through our pristine mountain home sites. Our focus and passion is environmental enhancement. MCE is unique in that the owner (Bob Wilson - on horseback in photo to right) is not a developer by profession but a retired executive with a love for this exquisitely beautiful area and the environment. Where a professional developer might invest a minimal amount of money to make the property marketable, Bob focuses on doing the right thing for the environment. Bob has invested more than $4 million on environmental enhancement over the past several years.
Moose Creek Estates is a gated community consisting of 30 home sites in 200 acres of prime real estate located thirty miles north of Salmon, Idaho and four miles from the continental divide, the Idaho - Montana border, and Lost Trail Powder Mountain Ski Resort. The property consists of a 2.5 mile-long valley with Moose Creek, West Fork River, and the North Fork River converging into the North Fork of the Salmon River which runs the length of the property. National Forest (Public Land) surrounds Moose Creek Estates providing excellent hiking, mountain biking, and horse access to several hundred thousand acres of public land. We chose a low-density housing strategy to limit impact to the environment and wildlife. Moose, elk, deer, and all kinds of wildlife abound on the property. The North Fork River corridor (50% of the property) that runs through the property is a dedicated greenbelt. Homeowners and guests have an exclusive opportunity to view the Idaho wildlife and flora in a pristine setting along the nearly three miles of hiking / biking trail along the North Fork River. Words do not do justice to the beauty of this area or the incredible natural views of animal life.
Much of the local economy is geared around recreation. During the summer months, whitewater rafting, kayaking, and boating are enjoyed on the Salmon River. The several thousand miles of streams and rivers in the local area provide incredible fishing. Fly fishing for trout, steelhead, and salmon is a must try! Opportunities are nearly limitless for hiking, trail riding, mountain biking, fishing, snowmobiling, 4-wheeling, and hunting. Skiing at Lost Trail Powder Mountain (only 4 miles from MCE) is exceptional with their 25 runs (the longest run is 2.5 miles long), 5 lifts, and unbelievable powder skiing with a relaxing, laid back, low cost, fun family adventure. Some rate the snow here as the best in the world.
Please take a few minutes to check out some of the fantastic local recreation opportunities right out our back door from Salmon, Idaho to the Montana border and also the local area photos linked to this website. We welcome your inquiries.
Our family took a well needed vacation to Moose Creek Estates in June of 2010. We all had the time of our life! The scenery there is incredibly beautiful - absolutely post card perfect! We were very impressed with the parts of history maintained on the property as well as all the wildlife and beauty of it all! Our hope is to have a second home at Moose Creek Estates in the not too distant future!
