Newsletter #9

It has always been a goal of the owners of Lifewater Ranch to share a place where families can make memories that will last a lifetime.

I feel this goal was achieved during the summer of 2020 when we had a couple of Orthodox Jewish families stay for the entire months of June, July and August.

This was the first time we did a long rental like this and it worked out well. Our families recently sent me a list of things they did while here, both on and off of the ranch. Just FYI – here is the list:

On the Ranch:


boating in the pond


almost every week in the summer is a different delicacy: 

miner’s lettuce, thimbleberries,  blackberries, raspberries cherries, plums, apples


building (ropes course & climbing wall)

helping in the egg production (collecting & washing)

feeding the animals


art & creative projects

Off the Property:

rafting in the Clearwater

horseback riding


Dworshak Dam

Kooskia Farmer’s Market


Fenn Pond

Kooskia Fish Hatchery tour

honey farm


The family sent me this link to their flicker account album of some fantastic photos they took while visiting Lifewater Ranch.

I couldn’t do a better ad campaign if I tried than what these images convey.

Enjoy Lifewater Ranch while your family is young and the time to make memories is at hand. Time goes too fast to waste it on the busyness of normal life.
