Tract 19 of Grays Creek Meadows is nestled at the base of historic Mesa Hill and the foothills of the West Mountains in Indian Valley, one of West Central Idaho’s most scenic valleys. Picturesque and rich, Grays Creek Meadows has been, until recent years, a 1000 acre cattle ranch under single ownership for nearly 100 years.
The southernmost part of Adams County, Indian Valley has a post office, fire station, a church and a well-attended community center. Just a 15 minute drive from the property is Council, the Adams County Seat, a small Idaho town with a diverse history and a sense of community. Council offers a variety of shops and services, professional and medical, K-12 schools, a nine-hole golf course, eateries 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 50 miles north. Boise International Airport is 120 miles southeast of Indian Valley via state and interstate highways.
The town of Cambridge, approximately 15 miles southwest, offers a variety of shops and services, K-12 schools, a medical clinic and churches. Cambridge hosts the annual Washington County Fair and Rodeo the first full week in August and Hell’s Canyon Days in June. Brownlee Dam on the Snake River, the Payette National Forest and numerous reservoirs open to fishing and boating and mountain streams are within short driving distances from Council, Cambridge and Indian Valley.
C. Ben Ross Reservoir, relatively undiscovered and tucked away from public view, is open to boating and fishing. It has a healthy population of largemouth bass and virtually any motorized boat can explore the entire reservoir in a day. Elk and mule deer populations are notoriously strong throughout the area. Upland game birds include turkey, sharp tail and sage grouse, valley quail and ring-neck pheasant.
Indian Valley is big country with millions of acres of national forest, BLM and State lands surrounding the area on three sides and reaching all the way to the Snake River. The distinct four season climate and approx.. 3000 ft. elevation is conducive to wonderful year around living, outdoor recreation and to cultivating gardens, yards, growing fruit and shade trees.
