Located at the gateway to the Bob Marshall Wilderness, the Blackfoot River Retreat is a premier fishing property comprised of 85± well-maintained acres and is currently the only property available on the Blackfoot River. The retreat is situated within a diverse ecosystem highlighted by plentiful stands of mature trees, vibrant pasture, lush river bottom, and a private swimming pond. Through this well-balanced landscape runs the storied upper Blackfoot, the very body of water that inspired Norman Maclean’s classic narrative, A River Runs Through It.
The turn-key three-bedroom, two-bathroom log cabin was built with the river as a visual centerpiece; large windows and doors open to the sights and sounds of the river. Adjacent to the log cabin and built above a two-car garage are guest quarters perfect for visiting friends and family. An additional two-vehicle log garage provides space for ranch implements and other toys. A haven for wildlife, Blackfoot River Retreat is a desirable elk and deer archery hunting property as well. Deeded acreage on both sides of the river and nearly 1,500 feet of river frontage offers privacy and excellent dry-fly fishing for native west slope cutthroat trout. River features on the property include excellent fishing and swimming holes and access to miles of wilderness wade-fishing, both upstream and down.
Rarely, if ever, does a single property feature so many desirables: picturesque end-of-the-road privacy amongst the wildlife, excellent recreational opportunities, productive pasture with old-priority water rights, and a location in a historic Montana valley.
