Homes for sale in Hidden Springs are seemingly far from the city of Boise, yet only a few minutes away.
Driving north on Seamans Gulch Road, surrounded by the gritty-brown hills pitching up and down, Hidden Springs appears on the right side of the road. A Hidden Springs fire station and Dry Creek Mercantile are the first buildings you pass by as you enter the large community, announcing that this is no ordinary subdivision.
Dry Creek Mercantile, also known as the "Merc", is a general store where you can grab a cup of coffee in the morning, buy groceries, get a pizza for dinner, listen to live music or host a gathering at night. The Merc, fire station and small park at the entrance to Hidden Springs, along with the roaming Idaho real estate and many large lots available, evoke the nostalgic feelings and spirit of the American west.
