Off grid: Solar power; water from a spring. About 10 degrees cooler than Boise, and above the inversions. available July 2018. A well socialized dog is OK. Cats, not so much.
The Cabin: It is a rustic, romantic small cabin with large wrap-around deck nestled in the pine trees near a small pond, 8.2 miles to the Capitol Building in Downtown Boise. Built in the summer and fall of 2007 as an agricultural structure to support a native seed and tree operation. It has rarely been rented. Beautiful heritage fruit orchards are within walking distance. You may see elk, deer, wild turkeys, quail, other wildlife, and I recently saw evidence of a bear. Some say cougars are in the area, too, but I haven't seen any...
