East Boise County Living

Idaho City and the east Boise County area offers the best of both worlds. It offers mountain living and pine covered hills all within 30 to 60 minutes from the city of Boise respective of the area you live. Many folks want the enjoyment of mountain living but not forsake the amenities of the city. This allows for both. There are some trade offs and it isn't for everyone. Some may not like the 30 to 60 minute drive but others coming from long traffic congested commutes find the stress and traffic free driving, with great views, therapeutic. Also while Boise gets very little snow you will experience it in the higher elevation of Boise County. Snow that stays usually starting from mid Nov through end of March generally, as we do tend to get glorious Springs here. I like to say that 'winter is as hard as you are prepared and about when your tired of it its over'. It does however bring its own wondrous beauty. Another perk to Boise County area is you are generally above any inversion in winter time so lots of sunshine. Most employment is in the city of Boise but there are a lot of local businesses and amenities to enjoy such as the Hot Springs Resort and Trudy's Kitchen, the pancakes are a must. Boise County is surrounded by Federal and State land for quick easy public recreation. Thousands of miles of back country trails for ATV, Motorbike riding, cross country skiing, fly fishing and just exploring. Many natural hot springs and hiking trails to be discovered. On top of Mores Summit there are 200 miles of equestrian trails that make great snowmobile highways in winter. If you are a nature enthusiast and outdoors kind of person then it is heaven. If your a nightlife person then it may not hold the same charm. It does offer a very serene, relaxing quality of life if you are looking for that. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about the area as I have specialized in property sales there for many years. You can get more info at
