    Bordered by the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness Area, the home sits on 42.5 acres, about 40 miles outside of Riggins, Idaho. The only way to access it is by a small aircraft or jet boat. The property has access to a 1,900-foot landing strip that's nearby. The mail, reports the Wall Street Journal, is dropped off at a nearby lodge about once a week per bush plane. (The post man is even known to take grocery store requests.)

    The 3,246-square-foot home was renovated in 2009 and includes new tile flooring, appliances, and bathroom upgrades. It includes four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and a 1,200-square-foot deck, as well as three large fireplaces. 

    Located along the Main Salmon River, which allows for fishing and white-water rafting, the home sees its fair share of wildlife like mountain lions, cougars, and wolves. 

    "Once you're there," the owner claims, "the rest of the world goes away."
