About Us


PetersonFamilyThe founding vision of Hidden Springs was to build a rural community in the tradition of Idaho’s small towns while carefully preserving the natural surroundings of the valley. The Dry Creek Mercantile (The Merc) was designed to play an important role, creating a social gathering place and hub for our community families and friends to enjoy, frequent and feel welcomed.

When the Peterson’s bought The Merc in 2008, they committed to retaining the original vision for The Merc. Together with their friendly staff they take pride in ensuring that every visit to The Merc and its rental properties is an enjoyable and memorable one.

With the support of the Hidden Springs Community and our Treasure Valley neighbors, The Merc continues to thrive and be the social gathering place it was intended to be where adults and kids alike can come and enjoy each other’s company in a comfortable family environment.
