Tips and "How-to's" A collection of practical thoughts on buying rural land.


Gulf Creek Canyon Preserve

Gulf Creek Canyon is a nature preserve with a small cabin that allows you to stay and be a part of this unique property. It is being sold with a 164 acre conservation easement that limits the rights to timber, make new roads, and building on the property. The conservation easement will run with the land with each owner in the future.


The property is the top of the hill and the canyon with Gulf Creek running through the heart of the property. A mature hard-wood forest creates the habit for wildlife and rare wild flowers. There are several overlooks from the hill and hiking is easy on the top. However, you will need a hiking stick and maybe a rope to hike some of the steeper parts in the canyon. The beauty and mystery make it worth the trip.


The cabin is a small two bedroom, one bath with a larger room in the basement. An old fashioned swing hangs from the front porch. It is the kind of place you just want to sit and take in all that surrounds you.
