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. And of course, it’s a fixer-upper, which makes me love it even more! The price? The location? The stained glass? The listing makes some claims about its history that I can’t substantiate, but nonetheless, this is a gem.


213 Cameron Rd, Careywood, ID

Asking Price $175,000
Opportunity to own a true piece of history in the form of real estate! Polish Farm House originally constructed in the Carpanthian Mountains in 1914 now located on nearly 10 wooded acres overlooking Lake Pend Oreille. A master piece of construction with the original logs and beams that was treasured enough to be saved during the German occupation of Poland during WWII. Handmade copper tile roof, German style colored windows and set amidst lovely cedars make this a dream come true. Still work to be done but will be worth every penny!!!
