Fly fishing aficionados can now own a piece of paradise the only kicker is it costs, $7.95 million. The South Fork Lodge is located in the Rockies on the Snake River in Swan Valley, ID, it was a state-of-the-art, luxury fly fishing lodge but it can now be your dream getaway house.
The property is set on 25 acres with over a half-mile of river frontage and features 8 bedrooms with their own outdoor patios, 2 private cabins containing 5 suites, a self-contained 4 bedroom/2.5 bath river house, 4 fisherman cabins, and a high-end restaurant replete with outdoor, riverside seating and a grand bar suited for swapping fishing stories by the roaring fire.
The property includes a full-service fly shop, established and successful guide service, employee housing and equipment storage, and an exclusive number of fishing permits for the South Fork, Main Snake and Blackfoot Rivers. The location of the property is also strategically located next to the busiest boat ramp on the river providing robust retail traffic throughout the fishing season.
