we looked there too, but they had a lot of restrictions, we wanted none of those, that's part of the reason to move to such a reomote area, right now we are in the tri cities. where are you now?

I'm in Yelm, WA close to Olymipia. I've been to Omak, nice area. I like Eastern WA for the smell of the sage brush and open country. If I take a road trip, I head over White Pass. Good luck with your new lives.

We are in Everett right now.

OOPS I made a mistake maybe lol.... I was not talking about the Cape Labelle area out the Aenneas Valley Road, I meant to refer to Cape Labelle road area off of highway 20 just about to the top of Wauconda Pass, about a mile from the Wauconda Cafe. The are no restrictions in this area and only 4-5 little farms. It does not connect to the 'other' cape labelle lol.

We decided long ago that we wanted nothing to do with anything up the Aenneas valley, no matter how attractive the price.

We went through hanna realty, you can look at their easy owner contract properties at hannarealty.com they were excellent to work with. lot's of property, though it's going fast. can't wait to move and be there full time.

Follow the link below for a picture of the homestead...lol...we hope. In the process right now.

We tried to buy this place about 18 months ago and 2 days before closing the owners found they had a unknown lienholder who would not release unless they had about a half a mil. on a place worth less than 80K. Needless to say it didn't close...

So time passes and a stroke of luck passes my way. The owners emailed me last night and asked if I was still interested. This time no lien holder , no realtors, everyone saves.

There's a gravel road on the right just before the little museum area, go up the road about 2 miles and then my friends property is on the right. Anywho we were over looking a little pond by his place hunting for deer and a heard of about 20 elk came out of the woods and they were stomping on the ice so they could drink. one 5 by 5 and all the rest cows. I guess it's not open to elk hunting though in that gmu.

I tried the website, but it doesn't come up. Did you post the correct spelling?

We're in Bellingham, also along the border, but prices are soooo high here right now that I'm just itching to find a larger space for a little less. We spotted some land in Toledo...anyone familiar with prices in that area? (Mt St Helens) There was a sign, for sale by owner, $5K an acre, 5 acre tracts. It's nearly 5 times the price here!
