These communities are tight-knit and remind one what life was like in simpler times. Eden is so named because the surveyor that came to plot the area in 1859 exclaimed that it was one of the most beautiful places he had ever seen. The Eden General Store has been a fixture here since the early days and is a vision of the Old West. Inside the diner you will find an old-fashioned soda fountain counter and a storefront filled with jars and jars of old-fashioned sweets as well as homemade crafts and other goodies.
Obviously, the snow season is a big one in these parts with three world-class ski resorts within 15 minutes of the communities, but the Spring, Summer and Fall are also filled with recreation. The area boasts river rafting, camping, hunting, fishing, biking, hiking and plenty of off road trails for all those toys!
The housing in these areas is mainly rustic design. Cabins, large and small, dot the narrow streets and hidden pathways that make up these throw-back communities.
