On a rare occasion a ranch becomes available with so many amenities that it may excite even those individuals with an exacting list of requirements who yearn for the Montana experience yet provides all the conveniences a nearby town can offer. The Bitterroot River Valley Ranch, an amazing ranch, is an exciting discovery. An exceptional 662± acre ranch situated on the banks of the beautiful Bitterroot River, it offers boundless recreational opportunities, but at the same time, its owners may enjoy all that downtown Hamilton has to offer, including a plethora of fine dining, shopping, quaint boutiques, sightseeing, art galleries, and medical services.
Expansive swaths of irrigated, green pastureland blend harmoniously with the stands of ponderosa pines and deciduous trees that flourish along the river. The hay/pasture grounds rest on the upper bench and gently slop down to the river bottom. Healthy populations of elk, deer, pheasant, quail, turkey, waterfowl, and other wildlife call this part of the ranch their home. The large river bottom area provides the perfect blend of deciduous and conifer trees to lend eye-pleasing color at any time of the year. As the mornings become crisp in the autumn, mother nature displays an impressive palate of colors, and at twilight it is common to hear the majestic bugle of a bull elk in rut. The river bottom is very secluded and private, almost like being in a different world away from civilization.
