Off-grid 80.54 acre recreational retreat with 4 log cabins completely surrounded by Salmon-Challis National Forest land. Yellow Jacket Recreational Retreat is located just a few miles from the historic Yellow Jacket mine and the Frank Church Wilderness area. This remote wooded haven highlights a pond, 1928 priority irrigation water rights, and mineral rights. Yellow Jacket Creek runs the full length of the property year-round.
The main cabin and honeymoon cabin are located in the northeast portion of the property and over a mile away in the southwest portion of the property are the other two guest cabins near the pond. Therefore, there is plenty of privacy if you wanted to have multiple guests visiting the property at the same time. The land between the cabins would also make a great place to put a private landing strip. There are 2 bridges that cross the creek, a driving bridge that leads to the main cabin and a walking bridge near the guest cabins.
The property attracts a variety of wildlife such as deer, elk, moose, bear, and grouse making it a great place to both enjoy nature and hunt.

The historic town has evolved over the years but still retains its small-town old West charm as witnessed by its downtown art galleries and custom local shops.
