VIRTUAL TOUR: 95 Acre Sun & Snow Retreat

Virtual Tour Highway 6

95 Acre Sun & Snow Retreat /

Conference Center

Exchange the predictable, tired & well-worn paths of living for the invigorating purity of the Mountain Wild.

This former ski resort was remodeled in 2006 into a majestic 12 thousand square foot Mountain Lodge.

Nestled on 95 Acres in a remote region of North Idaho and adjacent to the St. Joe National Forest, the resort remains easily accessible from paved Highway 6.

Nowadays, the ski lift will carry you to quiet cross-country and downhill trails, trodden only by the local wildlife. The pine forests whisper peace, and dazzling snow sculptures articulate every detail of this azure mountainscape.

Living is more gentle here. Inhabit majestic stillness from the covered lower level porch or upper decks of the lodge, or from the rocked footpaths of the landscaped grounds.

Perfect for private respite, family gatherings, or business functions, this property can accommodate many, with 13 bedrooms and 10 baths in the Main Lodge alone.

More romantic and intimate, the Suite of Rooms atop the Lookout Tower overlooks a gorgeous panorama.

Upper “Cabin in the Woods”, an additional lodge, and a large Shop are just a few of the other accommodations, making this property perfect as a Private Vacation Resort or a spectacular Business Venue.

What is the True Cost of the Interest Rate Increase?

Dear Friends,

It’s probably no surprise that rising interest rates have a significant impact on your pocket book.

But how much of an impact?  The True Cost may shock you!

Consider this:

The average stay in a home is 5 to 7 years

according to the National Association of Realtors®.

Knowing you like to stay informed, we have provided three real-world home buying scenarios in the graphics below.  From these hypothetical comparisons, we hope you can get a better idea of the true cost of the interest rate hikes that are expected in the near future.

Assuming that you remain in your new home for 7 years, it is very clear the HUGE impact of rising interest rates. 

WAITING TO BUY could cost you THOUSANDS of dollars!

(Visit our website to view larger PDF graphics of these three scenarios.)

Home “A” Costs $150,000

At the current interest rate of 4.875%, the monthly payment will be $797.

If you wait until the interest rate rises to 6%,
your monthly payment will increase by $85,
for a total annual increase of $1020!

If you stay in that home for 7 years,
you will be spending $7140 MORE!

What could you do with an extra $7140?

Waiting to purchase this $250,000 home could cost you

$140 per month 
$1680 per year

If you stay in that home for 7 years,
you will be spending $11,760 MORE!

What could you do with an extra $11,760?

 

What could you do with an extra

$21,840?

Thinking of buying?  Now is a great time, if you want to save $$ in your monthly budget, as well as over the life of your potential mortgage.

Are you waiting for a lower purchase price?

The “savings” of a few thousand dollars off the purchase price will actually COST you THOUSANDS when the interest rates rise.

Don’t wait to make your next Real Estate move.

Mountain Top Sun and Ski Resort – Great Business Venue

When we tire of well-worn ways, we seek for new. This restless craving in the souls of men spurs them to climb, and to seek the mountain view.
