The 640± acre Double Springs Ranch is one of central Idaho’s premier properties. Located in the upper Pahsimeroi Valley 65 miles northeast of Sun Valley, the ranch is encircled by the majestic peaks of the Lemhi and Lost River Mountain ranges and surrounded by federal lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The ranch specializes in the production of premium alfalfa and is nestled at the foothills to the east of Mt. Borah, the highest peak in Idaho.
The ranch features a restored three bedroom, two bath ranch house tucked against the adjoining hillside and overlooking the property’s four interconnected trout ponds. The covered porch frames an extraordinary view and is a perfect spot to relax and watch the day begin and end. Additional improvements include a restored one bedroom, one bath guest cabin, six stall horse barn with tack room and ranch office on the first floor and four bedroom, two bath caretaker’s apartment on the second story, 7,500± sq. ft. shop and machine shed with bunk room, four bay equipment storage building, and four raised and covered big game blinds along the southern property boundary. Buried utilities service the ranch compound.
The property features 537± acres of decreed surface water rights that are delivered via gravity flow from the spring source and applied using four center pivot sprinklers.
The ranch lies in the heart of some of Idaho’s best big game hunting with a large elk herd residing in the hills next to the ranch and qualifies for landowner preference tags for controlled hunts in unit 37. With high-quality public lands in every direction, the ranch is an excellent base from which to explore the area’s unspoiled backcountry and offers excellent hiking and trail riding right from the gate.
The ranch is accessible all year and situated between Sun Valley and Jackson Hole, Wyoming, within easy reach of either community. Idaho Falls and its commercial airport lie approximately two hours southeast of the property, while Salt Lake City is located just over four hours to the south.
