Absaroka Moon Retreat is an extraordinary property located in one of the most spectacular settings in North America. Nestled at the foot of the Absaroka Mountain Range near Deep Creek in the northeastern corner of Montana’s famed Paradise Valley, all five structures feature breathtaking views of 9,000 to 11,000-foot peaks – many rising dramatically just 2,000 yards from the main house and others winding 30 miles downrange to the south.

Woods, meadows, spruce and aspen groves, plentiful and varied wildlife, and snow-capped mountain peaks dominate this magnificent and visually private 50± acre retreat. The property is located only 11 miles from downtown Livingston, one of the Rocky Mountains’ most sophisticated small towns known for its national-class literary and art communities, the historic significance of its railroad industry, its fine restaurants and a supportive community of multi-generational ranchers, business people and sophisticated newcomers of virtually every age and background. Livingston is also the center of one of America’s most fabled fly-fishing regions and offers world-class cross-country skiing, hiking, biking, horseback riding, hunting, rock climbing, and many other outdoor pursuits.

All improvements on the property – from the 4,300± square-foot state-of-the-art hand-hewn white oak log home and 1,000± square-foot hand hewn log guest cabin to the stone and barn wood garage and guest quarters, the log and stone office cabin, and the stone and wood horse barn and exercise room – are custom designed, built and decorated to the highest standards, and carefully integrated into the natural landscape. Two-hundred-year-old white oak hand-hewn logs, beautifully patinaed reclaimed barn wood, hand-applied chink and plaster, gorgeous old wood floors, exquisite imported granite, custom hand-forged metal hardware accessories and heated stone walkways combine to produce a lovely, comfortable retreat. The property is fenced and cross-fenced to accommodate a superb horse ranch if such should be the vision of the fortunate new owner.

The Absaroka Moon Retreat is located in the most breathtaking country in the world where the 45-mile long Paradise Valley is divided by the winding ribbon of the renowned Yellowstone River and framed by the Absaroka and Gallatin mountain ranges. This property presents a once in a lifetime investment opportunity for a discerning buyer seeking an extraordinary Montana lifestyle.
