Gozzer Ranch's setting is impressive enough-looking out onto the 60-square-mile Lake Coeur d'Alene in northern Idaho. More stunning is how the property's developers, Discovery Land Co., have kept the whole place rustic and in low profile. The 700-acre land plan includes a Tom Fazio-designed golf course that snuggles easily into the native contours. Long views of the lake and of the surrounding Coeur d'Alene Mountains are unimpeded, thanks to a relaxed residential envelope: only 266 homesites (each three-quarters to one acre) plus 90 cottages and lakeshore lodges.

At a base elevation of 2,500 feet above sea level, the golf ball travels a long way here. The par-72 course, ranging from 7,237 yards down to 5,100 yards, incorporates native prairie grasses in the roughs and dramatic long views-including infinity-edge looks behind greens into the Wild West. Every few holes, there's a welcome distraction-well-stocked food cabins, replete with premium cheeses, meat and liqueurs.

Gozzer Ranch sits across the lake from downtown Coeur d'Alene and is accessible via a ferry that runs every hour or so. Too bad the ferry also runs back to town. Here's a place you'd like to be stranded for a weekend or a summer.

“"Many years ago, our company founder, Al Conklin, sold a new twin-engine business aircraft to a very successful entrepreneur. He had established a bit of a rapport with the individual and, after the sale, asked him straight out, 'How can you justify the cost of this airplane?' His reply? 'What is the cost of a divorce?'"–David Wyndham, president, Conklin & de Decker”
