The property is located approximately 5 miles from Ontario, Oregon. Ontario is an agricultural community that lies along the Oregon-Idaho border overlooking the Snake River. The area is known for its prime agricultural growing land which commonly produces crops such as russet potatoes, sugar beets, and onions. Its location is unique in that it is near the point where four major rivers converge. These rivers are the Snake, the Malheur, the Owyhee, and the Payette rivers.
Besides the robust agricultural economy, Ontario offers its residents several local events and cultural opportunities. Local attractions include The Four Rivers Cultural Center, the Annual Great Owyhee Ride, and Malheur County Fair. Ontario is also close to some beautiful natural attractions such as Malheur Butte, the Owyhee Reservoir, and Leslie Gulch. Ontario is also on the eastern edge of the Treasure Valley, which encompasses the Boise metro area and is a mere one hour drive from Boise, Idaho.
