Owner info

Year Purchased: 1954

About the owner: Hi! My name is John Campbell and our Swan Valley Family Retreat is the home my father 'Bill' built in 1954. I was only 1 year old. My two sister's Linda and Francelle and I lived in the most beautiful valley in Idaho and were fortunate to have so much of mother nature's pleasantries around. We decided to share this beauty and serenity with you and your friend's and family. The home was recently remodeled (2013) to accommodate 16-20 comfortably in this 5 bedroom 2 bath home. We designed it to keep the taste of the old fashioned charm, yet have the technology of today. The home is on over two acres which can accommodate large RV's, trailers and tents for large family reunions. The 'Cook's Kitchen' includes new appliances (including dishwasher) and plenty of everything for large meals. The large dining room has two tables that seats 16-20. You will absolutely feel much at home here at the Swan Valley Family Retreat! Swan Valley is world famous for fishing on the incredible snake river! But you must see the breathtaking Fall Creek Falls!

Why the Owner Chose Swan Valley, ID, USA:
I grew up here and loved every minute of it! The Swan Valley Family Retreat...is just that! An escape from the regular world into serenity, beauty and relaxation so family can be the main focus! My dad built a large red grainery, and with it's rustic charm, creates the best backdrop for outdoor family photos. The huge front lawn is wonderful to relax and view the mountains, and the open area behind the house is perfect for parking, games, and more! This is a family home and the nostalgia of what Bill and Rose Campbell (my parents) created here is meant to be shared. Their favorite color is RED, and you will see a lot of red throughout the house. Bill was a farmer and a mechanic. If anyone wanted anything fixed, they would bring it to Bill. His famous fix-it shop is still around just the way he left it. He was also an artist and along with a grandson, painted the side of his shop a beautiful mountain view. The house is known for it's four large picture windows where the views are incredible. Deer frequent the property in the wintertime. A big apple tree brings terrific apples every year. You will love vacationing here and making it your yearly vacation home. It is charming every day of the year!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Every outdoor amenity is within 45 minutes of the property. Some are only less then 1/2 mile. Come and stay at our Swan Valley Family Retreat and make it your yearly vacation destination! Give us a call! We will be glad to meet you!
