Auction: Locals Snap Up Cabin Sites

The first dozen-plus Priest Lake cabin sites to be auctioned today all have sold for the appraised value to the existing lessee, with no one else bidding. Each time, when the auctioneer declared, “Sold!,” the crowd, which now includes lots of people standing up in back and along the sides along with hundreds seated in rows, erupted into cheers and applause – and occasionally whistles and shouts, too. The auctioneer noted that the auction is moving along quickly. Slides of the cabin sites, the homes and their views of the lake are being projected on large screens up front during the bidding/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: Sounds like a good outcome, after all the fuzz, right?
