The Schrock Ranch is a masterpiece by design, by its quality workmanship and by its picturesque setting overlooking the beautiful Weiser River valley of history, recreational attributes and timeless values. It offers the best of two worlds: a country lifestyle of open space, serenity and quietness with neighbors to befriend, while the other realizes the benefits of reasonable access to city amenities. Only two hours to the Boise Valley, it is easily accessible, yet private and remote enough for those longing for a simpler lifestyle. With its high-quality master workmanship and attention to detail, it offers simple elegance to be enjoyed. And at today’s costs, it could not be duplicated at the price offered. In a region of wonderful ranching families, this is an incredible opportunity for someone looking for a ‘pride of ownership’ retreat or mountain ranch.

As they say “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and for most, the Rock Creek Ranch is just beautiful! The Ranch is in a picturesque setting, private & quiet with an incredible ‘barn-dominium’, meadows, live creek, complete home with shop & garage, three (3) wells and two septic systems with one (1) additional residential building permit for a new home. With the artesian wells (2 of 3), adding a solar system and vegetable garden would make this an ideal, self-sufficient, “off-grid” ranch retreat for multiple families. If this sounds interesting, come drive through the arching log ‘gateway’, take a look and see if this might be where you want to be when you come ‘HOME’.
