Like many communities, Rock Creek was hit hard by the economy’s turn eight years ago. But it has come through the tough times better than ever, with strong financial backing, great golf, a new development plan, and prices that savvy buyers will appreciate.
Sitting at 2,600 feet and minutes from Lake Coeur d’Alene, Rock Creek is heaven for anyone who loves the great outdoors. It abuts uninterrupted acres of forest, with miles of trails, skiing a short drive away, a full slate of court and water sports, and, particularly now, with the first homes and lots for sale, the nearest neighbors moose, elk, and deer.
The property spreads over nearly 1,000 acres, but new plans call for developing only 300 acres of that with another 250 for the Tom Weiskopf-designed golf course. That layout—featuring both lake and mountain views—was built in 2008 and revitalized in 2012. From flat, open land lined by firs and pines, it moves to more rolling terrain with cedars and hemlocks. The clubhouse offers indoor and outdoor dining that relies on locally sourced ingredients paired with regional wines.
Lots, from half to one acre, start at $100,000. The first houses going up begin at $699,000. The next offerings will be slightly smaller, two- and three-bedroom homes promising high quality at lower prices.
