Cottonwood Creek Ranch- 1085 ac
Cottonwood Creek Ranch is a contiguous 1,085 acre working cattle ranch with wintering area just outside of Stites, Idaho. The ranch includes a large portion of the Cottonwood Creek drainage nearly to its confluence with the South Fork of the Clearwater River, which is an excellent fishery. There is a main house (approximately 2,300 sq ft plus loft), an older home that could be renovated for a bunk house, 3 livestock barns with hay storage, a shop, a partial steel structure for additional hay storage, slaughterhouse, woodshed, and multiple granaries. All but 40 acres is fenced and cross fenced. There are roughly 340 acres of timber and 660 acres of rangeland pasture. Extremely valuable and unique for this area is the approximately 50 acres of irrigated hay ground allowing for additional cuttings. There are multiple wells and springs and very few neighbors!
The location of Cottonwood Creek Ranch on the edge of the Nez Perce – Clearwater National Forests and Selway Bitterroot Wilderness also makes this an exceptional recreational and big game hunting opportunity. You can fish in Cottonwood Creek on the property or walk down to the South Fork of the Clearwater River or take a 35 minute drive and be on the world-renowned Selway or Lochsa Rivers. This property is currently set up as a working cattle ranch, but it could also be great as a hunting property for upland birds, deer, turkey, and bear or as a base camp for a larger outfitting operation.
The small town of Stites is only 2 miles from the ranch with additional services 6 miles away in Kooskia, Idaho. The nearest regional airport is in Lewiston, Idaho which is about an hour and 45 minute drive down the Clearwater.
