This beautiful hand hewed log cabin is located directly on the bank of the East Fork of the Salmon River. The property offers big mountain and river views. There is a horse corral, loafing shed, shed, tee pee and many extras that come with this delightful property. The property comes with surface and subsurface water rights. The property is centrally located for numerous mountain activities.
Property was used as a camp ground when it was part of a ranch, owned by the Lezingers. People camped here to fish the famous Ziggler’s Hole. http://www.hookandbullet.com/fishing-east-fork-salmon-river-sun-valley-id/The old outhouse still stands on the property.
There is a deep fishing hole just off the shore where the tipi (on a wooden deck complete with antique iron bed) stands as a guest lodge for those visiting. There is a sandy beach, and numerous camp spots.
There are 2 eco systems on the property.
There is a lower road (the beach road) that goes to the tipi and beach. The upper road (the desert road) goes to the “cabin”. Upon entering, you will go by the small orchard and numerous trees planted for privacy. All trees are on a drip line. The well is 55 gallons per minute of pure beautiful drinking water….There are water rights included with the property.
This property is a wildlife sanctuary for anyone interested in fishing, hunting, horseback riding, hiking, photography, writing, peace & seclusion, and ultimate bird watching. The stars at night are awesome. Sit out on the deck and watch shooting stars. The skies are bluer than ever.
The cabin is built of hand hewed logs of ponderosa pine. The logs were treated with “Lifetime” (non- toxic) which ages the logs in appearance. The whole theme of the cabin is “Rustic Casual Elegance”. Light is of utmost importance, with windows all around, that open to let summer breezes in. The quality of the windows and doors is apparent. Fully screened. Fully chinked inside and out. Flooring is rough sawn pine from Montana with antique square nails. Outside decks are redwood…oiled under and over, assuring longtime use. The interior barnwood is from the old Wooly Ranch (presently the GreenFire Ranch) down river. The rock work is all from local quarries and the river below. This cabin is a work of art….the furniture is handmade…from the bed to the dining trestle table. The lighting is part of the ambience that gives the feeling of candle and lamp light…with the ability to turn it up or down. Attention to detail is obvious. Everyone that visits feels they are in a world in tune with the surroundings……peace and serenity. The feeling of the great room with abundant light and views of the river below lends to possibilities for a writer or artist to find no limits …….You can be at eye level with an Eagle flying by…..or viewing the wildlife resting in the peaceful surroundings below.
