The ONeill property is located along the Weiser River about 8 miles northeast of Cambridge at Goodrich, a beautifully picturesque area of West Central Idaho at the base of Cuddy Mountain. Goodrich Creek flows into the Weiser River just north of the property and a one-room country school still stands testimony to earlier days when Goodrich was a railroad stop and small farmsteads were prevalent along the river and its tributaries.Known for being a good fishery, the Goodrich Reach of the Weiser River is popular for floating late spring and early summer and the old railroad grade has been converted into the Weiser River Trail, an 80 mile long non-motorized recreation trail through the beautiful country-side and open for horse-back riding, hiking and mountain biking.Accessible are thousands of acres of public lands extending all the way to the Snake River at Hells Canyon.
The owners residence and guest quarters enjoy privileged and presiding views across 59.16 acres of meadows, hay fields and out to the wooded stream channel.One-half mile of the Weiser River forms a rich riparian corridor that is the northwest boundary of the ONeill property. Healthy stands of cottonwood, willow and native hawthorn line the river and create woodland glens on the property. Water, feed and cover attract a sensational variety of wildlife from songbirds to elk.The stillness and aesthetics are priceless.
Goodrich is located in the southwestern corner of Adams County. The Adams County Seat is Council, a town with a population of 800, about 12 miles northeast by well maintained county roads and State Highway 95. Council offers a variety of shops and services, professional and medical, K-12 schools and a small airport. The mountain resort town of McCall on Payette Lake, popular for summer and winter outdoor recreation, boutique shops and fine restaurants is just 30 miles north of Council. Boise International Airport is 112 miles southeast of the O’Neill property via county, state and interstate highways.
Extensive block walls with ornate swinging iron gates open into a courtyard drive that serves the main dwelling and guest quarters. The entrance is auspicious, artistic, appropriate to what lies behind and brings an element of privacy. The same gate design re-appears at another entrance into the fields along the river.
