We cater to families and those in need of healing and rest.
Prices are geared toward inexpensive yet quality family vacations.
World class fishing, river rafting and hunting is available in the area as well.
We feature a solar heated pool (generally available from June-September) and a nice large hot tub for year-around relaxing and star gazing.
Our grounds occupy 160 acres - lots of room for hiking and exploring. Several ponds are also available for fishing and swimming. We are located about 15 minutes off of Highway 12 about halfway between Lewiston and Missoula. Animals are present as this is a working ranch as well. We have chickens, Scottish Highland cattle, and a few horses.

About the owner: I am an ex-retired homeowner doing my best to keep this ranch by sharing it with others. I used to be a Microsoft Developer, made my fortune and came here for Y2K and to retire only to lose it to professional money managers. I have long had a vision to share this beautiful place with others and at the same time help support the many talented and interesting people that live in this area. I am also a chess coach and love to help kids learn how to think clearly.
Why the Owner Chose Idaho County, ID, USA:
Kooskia is in the Palouse valley and is known as the banana belt of the northwest. It is one of the best kept secrets for a quality lifestyle. My kids have left the house so now we have a large, empty place we want to share. This property has so much water on it and herbs and views and beauty, we just love it. You will experience the feeling of wilderness with the top notch comforts of a fancy home complete with AC and uninterruptable power. Water is in our name because that is what we have with the highest quality and a lot of quantity.
