Just 29± miles north of Bozeman, the 3,731± acre Crazy Elk Ranch is nestled atop the Horseshoe Hills in a private mixed and mature Douglas fir forest with views stretching as far as the eye can see of Bozeman’s picturesque Gallatin Valley, the snowcapped Bridger Mountains, and the Missouri River Valley from Three Forks all the way to Canyon Ferry Lake. Crazy Elk Ranch features a stunning 9,690± SF eight-bedroom, nine-bathroom dream home designed by Locati Architects and built by Schlauch Bottcher Construction. The main home is situated at 6,300’ elevation, allowing for magnificent panoramic views from sunup to sundown. Enjoy a cup of coffee on the deck while watching the sunrise and wildlife come alive or a glass of wine in the in-ground hot tub as the sun slips below the mountains. This escape includes a rustic yet elegant 2,563± SF three-bedroom, three-bathroom guest home, perfectly sized barn for toys and gear, a cozy hunting cabin, and a modest ranch manager’s home. The striking improvements are only bested by the thousands of deeded acres to recreate on, already divided into 21 parcels. Located close to Bozeman’s international airport, Crazy Elk Ranch is offered turnkey and is move-in ready for the next owner to begin their Montana adventure.
