Whether you are looking for a home, ranch, land, commercial, or investment property in northern Idaho, the team at St. Joe River Realty is ready to help. St. Maries is the county seat of Benewah County, and mountains, rivers, lakes, and forests provide a scenic backdrop for the town, with both the St. Joe River and St. Maries River passing within the city limits of St. Maries. The St. Joe River (the highest navigable river in the world) offers you adventures such as level 5 whitewater rafting, world-class fly-fishing, peaceful float trips, and of course swimming – including Aqua Park, a favorite with locals as it is right in town. With the St. Joe River, St. Maries River, and seven lakes between town and Coeur d’Alene, you are provided with some of the best boating and water recreation found anywhere. Chatcolet Lake is just moments from town and is a local favorite for recreation as well as being a migratory stopover for birds of all kinds including ducks, geese, herons, and pelicans, creating one-of-a-kind photo opportunities. If you enjoy cycling, visit the Trail of the Coeur d’Alene's or nearby Hiawatha Trail. For other outdoor activities like hunting, fishing, or riding ATVs and motorcycles, there are miles of state land perfect for these adventures. To enjoy nine holes of golf with panoramic views, visit the public St. Maries golf course, or visit the Circling Raven Golf Course, voted the #1 golf course in the State of Idaho.
Idaho is called the “Gem State” for good reason, and rockhounds flock to the local Emerald Creek Garnet recreation area which features the rare star garnets found only in Idaho and India.
St. Maries is located in the Saint Joe Mountains, where the ski areas and snowmobiling opportunities abound. Silver Mountain is a year-round destination and offers northern Idaho's largest indoor water park, luxury condos, North America's longest single-stage gondola, mountain biking, and golfing, all in addition to renowned ski trails. Skiers and snowboarders will also delight in the runs found at Lookout, North/South, Mt. Spokane, and Schweitzer.
