When the first settlers arrived in the area currently known as Eagle, Idaho in the late 1800's, they quickly determined that the best location to build their dream home was on the "island" between the North and South Channels of the Boise River.  This location provided easy access to all the things needed to be successful in their subsistence life style - fertile soil, water for irrigation and drinking, trees for shelter and fuel, wild game for hunting plus close proximity to the towns of Boise and Meridian for socializing and commerce. More than a century later, most of us no longer need these things to provide basic sustenance for our families but we do look to the elements of water, trees and wildlife to provide peace and harmony in our hectic lifestyles. 


As one of the newer communities on the “island”, The Shores blends together the elements of water, trees and wildlife to provide peace and harmony with the amenities most appreciated by today’s families.  Nestled along the South Channel of the Boise River, this intimate upscale neighborhood features 86 home sites designed to accommodate single and multi-level homes with a majority of the home sites adjacent to water.  The Shores also allows outbuildings and shops to be constructed with Architectural Committee approval. As you drive through the community you will certainly appreciate the variety of homes featuring European and old world architecture created by some of Boise’s best builders.  The community features meandering sidewalks/pathways, seven large ponds and nine waterfalls.  Residents also enjoy the large community clubhouse with adjoining tennis courts, basketball court and infinity edge pool.
