Blackhawk On The River

Have You Ever Been to Blackhawk On The River in McCall?


Just recently stayed there - it was awesome!


Don't we all deserve a little break from the rat race?  Life is full of distractions, deadlines and responsibilities. I'm not complaining.  I love the life that I live.  But it can be exhausting sometimes.  Which is why I recently made the 2 hour drive from Boise to Blackhawk on the River for some quiet R&R time with the family.  
If you haven't heard of Blackhawk on the River, it is a gated community a few miles outside of the downtown McCall along the Payette River.  There are many things about this community that make it special.  My favorite part?  How quiet it is.  I like McCall, but when we get away for a weekend, sometimes I really want to just decompress in a quiet outdoor setting.  
Blackhawk really delivers on this front. It is located right on the Payette river, and there is a 360 acre wildlife preserve with a trail system that goes right through it, so seeing wildlife and getting away from it all is just so simple there.

There is also a very cool lodge in the community that is available to owners and guests, that includes a nice gym with sauna and steam room.  Outside there is a pool and hot tub.  So while the kids play I can relax in the steam room or work out some stress on the TRX machine.

We took the kids fishing in the community ponds and then we went down to the river and had a bone fire while the kids fished some more and played in the sand.  We felt like we had our own private Idaho.  It was like remote camping but will all the luxury amenities we could ask for.

Of course because I am always evaluating real estate were ever I go I decided to speak to the development community directly about real estate options in the community.  From my research you could build a VERY nice 3 bedroom cabin/home in community and still be in the $300's.  I recon that you I could rent out the cabin as a vacation rental for $250-300 night.
Which means I would only need to rent it 7-10 days a months for it to break even.  If I rent it out 15-20 days I would make pretty really good cashflow on the property.  That would still leave me 10+ days a month for me, my family, and my friends. Not a bad arrangement.  Plus as an owner, you can rent out the community townhomes for your extra guests at 50% off the normal rate.  
I was so impressed by the community and the opportunities there that I negotiated a deal to have my real estate firm assist with the real estate sales for the community.  So now I have the inside scoop on the place.  Just call me if you want more details on the place or want a tour of it.  I have agents on my team up there every week you can reach them directly at 208-972-7168
