Westerly views of the majestic Bitterroot Mountains will never disappoint, and its wilderness designation calls to outdoor enthusiasts with endless trails, drainages, and mountains to explore. Whether you’re an artist, a writer, a photographer, an outdoor lover, or a fisherman, this place will inspire you to get outside and enjoy all of Montana’s splendor.
This stretch of the Bitterroot has braided channels. The ranch is located in the middle-bitterroot where walk and wade fishing is great. There is even a private island for kids to camp on.
For those who dream of building an estate-like home on the river, this is the perfect property to do so. The existing residence could eventually serve as guest quarters and would provide all the comforts during construction, eliminating the stress and financial hardships of finding temporary accommodations for adults, children, pets, or livestock until a primary dwelling can be completed. The building site sits on a bench out of the flood plain offering amazing views overlooking the river.
