A rare opportunity to build a new home along the river in Eagle

Mace River Ranch is a 192-acre master-planned community set along the Boise River, adjacent to downtown Eagle, Idaho—the last significant real estate of its kind in the city. If you’ve been looking for a place to buy or build a home in a beautiful riverfront or waterfront setting, convenient to Eagle, Meridian and Boise, this is it.


  • Mace River Ranch has everything that you could want in a new community from a great location, great amenities, quality builder team and much more like:
  • New one-mile-long Greenbelt extension
  • Spacious clubhouse
  • Community pool
  • 40-acre nature preserve with fish and
    wildlife restoration
  • 2.5 miles of on-site trails
  • Lush landscaping, ponds and waterfalls

I have had the pleasure of knowing many at The Garner Company for a long time, some I have known since just after high school and others I have known for just a few years.  I have always been impressed with the quality projects they produce and the quality people that work with them.  With the popularity of Eagle Idaho and the short distance from the Boise River and green belt.  Mace River will be a huge success and a welcomed addition to the Treasure Valley.

The history of Mace River Ranch

When the Mace family’s ancestors homesteaded on Eagle Island in the 1880s, they had no idea the land they settled would be Eagle’s last undeveloped riverfront parcel of its kind a hundred and twenty-six years later.

In 1887, Mace River Ranch was homesteaded by Polete Mace, one of the original founders of Eagle. Back then, Polete traveled by horse into Boise to file a patent for land near the river. On September 3, 1887, President Grover Cleveland granted him one for 130 acres. At that time, Eagle Island was mostly cottonwood forests and gravel bars.

Eventually, the Mace family cleared the land and farmed it for over 100 years through four generations, using the property’s trees to build log houses. Mace River Ranch’s large nature preserve serves as a living tribute to the Mace family’s legacy of environmental stewardship.

Back in the 1880s, Polete Mace knew what he was doing when he snatched up prime riverfront property in Eagle.  We hope you will too.
