Living at Buck Quarter Ranch means moments for a bounty of outdoor recreation abound, both on the property and within the surrounding region. Benefiting from its perch on a high plateau, the northwest interior of Washington offers four distinct seasons and on average, 174 sunny days per year.
The average rainfall ranges from just 24 to 30 inches per year with warm summers routinely reaching the mid to high 80’s while the evenings are cool and comfortable. Winters are equally as active with reliable snow coverage and average a low of 17 degrees. The climate and geography are perfectly aligned for hiking, equestrian sports, off-road vehicle tours (ATV’s, snowmobiles, etc.), biking, and fishing (both in lake and the active water rivers nearby).
Buck Quarter Ranch is also a natural sanctuary and wildlife utopia with nearly daily sightings of Moose, Elk, Deer, Turkey, Eagles, Cranes and many other bird species. Cast off the dock or take out the pontoon boat while the fish are biting – there are many species and thanks to annual stocking and an immaculate ecosystem, you’re guaranteed your catch. Off the ranch there are numerous nearby attractions including renowned golf courses, world-class ski resorts and recreation on the many waterways that include the Pend Oreille River, Lake Pend Oreille and Priest Lake – regarded among the most beautiful lakes in America.
