, ,

by Elizabeth Finkelstein My husband and I just returned from a week-long vacation in our friends’ DROP-DEAD STUNNING Ozarks rental home, so of course we’ve been dreaming ever since of buying our own historic vacation home somewhere lovely and remote, tucked away in the mountains. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I spotted this Idaho property for sale, which is dripping with old-world beauty and is on nearly 10 wooded acres overlooking Lake Pend Oreille.
