Additional Comments

One of the finest homes in the Salmon River corridor and Salmon valley area. Additionally this property is immediately set up for horse enthusiasts with a turn key operation ready to go which will handle multiple horses. The river frontage is among the best ever seen on any river. The fact that this is the world famous Salmon River fishery and one can catch world class Steelhead from the front lawn adds enormously to the owners enjoyment. Trophy big game hunting has been a byword in the Salmon Valley for a century. This beautiful high mountain valley was the ancestral home of the Lemhi Shoshone Indians. Sacajawea led the Lewis and Clark Expedition here to this valley where she was born the 1804-1806 Expedition which opened the Western US to future expedition.
