This fabulous 'Scandinavian-Country' home was once a notorious Yaak River Valley bar called Hell Roaring Saloon. Lovingly converted to a year-round family residence, it features an IKEA kitchen, a fully remodeled bathroom with tub and shower, river view dry bar, a library and a large master bedroom featuring a queen-sized bed with an unobstructed view of the Tamarack forested mountain across the river. There is a sleeper sofa (queen sized) in the main living area for a second couple.
In addition, there is a separate log cabin (perfect for kids or a second couple seeking their own privacy) with one bedroom and a sleeping loft, full shower, small kitchen. The cabin has two double beds, two twin beds and a sleeper hide-a-bed.
All of this on an open and SUNNY five-acre plot with a whopping 1,200 feet of private river front that wraps around the main building and flows within 15 feet of the full-view bar and front windows. Walk your kayak or fly rod to the river and be on the water in 30 seconds.
This is a 'get away from it all' vacation opportunity. Leave your cell phone at home (they don't work in the valley.) The trail head to Mt. Baldy is less than 100 yards from your front door. The deer and moose viewing - from your seat at the bar if you so choose - is incredible and your backyard is the Kootenai National Forest and the beautiful Yaak River.
Hunker down in your own piece of paradise, or use the place as a base camp for exploring the valley's multitude of gated forest service roads, hiking trails, secluded lakes and water falls. Once feted as 'the most remote valley in the lower forty-eight' The Yaak offers a truly unique vacation opportunity.
Don't let its name fool you ... the Hell Roaring property is quiet, beautiful and relaxing. The ultimate wilderness vacation for friends and family.
