Quality Of Life


Rathdrum, Idaho is a remarkable place to live, not only due to its scenic surroundings, but to its location. It truly has the small town feel with the convenience of a big city….without all of the big city problems.  In the final analysis the familiar phrase, “quality of life” describes what we all seek in a place to live, work and raise our family.  In northern Idaho we believe the lifestyle is uncompromised. You’re not far from paradise when you can see nature all around as you go about daily routines.




The Rathdrum area is located among the most coveted recreational features of North Idaho, whose natural playground offers an abundance of opportunity for sailboats, skiers, snowmobilers, campers, hikers, bikers, fisherman and hunters.  There are four major ski resorts within an hour’s drive of Rathdrum. Nine golf courses are within a twenty mile radius, including several top-ranked courses to challenge the avid golfer.
