Property description

Need an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life? With quiet, starry nights? Listening to the sounds of the river just outside your window? Or watching the silent snow fall? This place is for you! A beautiful private custom home waits for you on the bank of the Boise River, buffered with 15,000 square feet of rolling lawn up to the river's edge. After a day of fishing, boating, river rafting or motorcycle riding, enjoy cool summer breezes while roasting marshmellows in the outdoor firepit or head to the natural hot springs just 5 miles downriver. When winter snow covers the ground, fire up your snowmobiles and hit the gateway to the Trinities, 5 minutes from our door. Complete privacy for a small group or a family reunion.

All the features expected with a property such as this are included in the luxuriously appointed lodge: massive stone fireplace, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors, 55' flat screen HDTV, computer/printer, games, exercise equipment, and much more. Master bedroom features a king size bed, bedroom 2 has a King bed with a private deck overlooking the river, bedrooms 3 has a King bed and a bunk bed, and bedroom 4 has a King bed with a pull out twin bed. There are also three twin beds in the loft and a Queen bed in the bonus room.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Hello - We are Mike and Sheri Freer. We grew up in Flagstaff , Arizona and enjoyed 34 years there. Mike grew up spending his childhood summers in Featherville with his siblings and cousins every year. We decided to make the change and moved our four children to Featherville in 2006. Mike built our home and we lived there for 4 years while our children were still young. Those are precious years to our family. When our oldest needed to go to high school we moved to Mountain Home. We currently reside here in Mountain Home and escape to Featherville as often as possible. It is peaceful and quiet and more fun than anywhere else in the world. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Featherville:
This is a great property to spend your winter or summer vacation. It is away from the crowds and allows you time to reconnect with your family and friends. We found that 2-3 families really can enjoy it together. It will accomodate everyones wants in a vacation. Those who want to read quietly by the river or the fire can enjoy that while the others play outside with many different outdoor activities. The house is also set up in a way that those who want to watch a movie and/or play games(i.e. kids) can be closed off by a door while the others(adults) can enjoy a quiet conversation downstairs by the fire or on the patio.
