NEW LISTING: 20 Acre Resort Business in Scenic Clearwater Area

Pond with FountainThis 20 Acre Resort is located on Highway 12 in the heart of Idaho. Nominated one of the nations top-ranked Scenic Byways, Highway 12 traces the original Lewis & Clark Trail


Nature and history lovers the world over flock to the area for its untamed rugged beauty, blue-ribbon rivers & unique cultural legacy.

Part of the immense Nez Perce National Historic Park is located directly across the highway, site of the legendary “Heart of the Monster”. This geological formation is one of 38 sites spread across thousands of acres of untamed Idaho wilderness & attracts hundreds of visitors every year.

This scenic region of north-central Idaho is the largest public wilderness area in the lower 48 states,  a true Sportsman’s Paradise,  drawing year-round crowds.   World famous Clearwater River, a stone’s throw from the Resort, is on every angler’s bucket list.  The Clearwater River produces the largest, hardest- fighting  B-run Steelhead anywhere! Area rivers include the Lochsa, Salmon & Selway.  White water river trips are highly coveted & are often pre-booked years in advance.  At the height of Spring runoff, area rivers can challenge the most experienced navigators. 

Wildlife is abundant in these parts. Hunters and nature enthusiasts thrill to sightings of Deer, Elk, Bear, Mountain Lion, Pheasant, Grouse & Mountain Goats.  The occasional moose always stops traffic! Fall & Spring fishing seasons, hunting season, white-water river adventures, hiking & sightseeing draw year-round crowds and repeat business for the Resort.

 The Resort is located 1.5 miles from Kamiah, Idaho, a progressive small town with a Western/Victorian Motif. Kamiah offers excellent schools, sports programs, and medical services.
