A peaceful 20± minute drive from the booming college town of Bozeman (pop. 52,000), the East Gallatin River Ranch boasts an unheard-of 1.75± miles of both sides of the East Gallatin River as well as a beautiful pond, spring-fed sloughs, and oxbows. A beautiful executive home and guest house overlook the large pond and river with stunning views of the Bridger Mountains and Ross Peak. The setting is private, peaceful, and secluded, yet you can be eating at world-class restaurants in twenty minutes in downtown Bozeman.

Rich in water, the ranch can produce excellent waterfowl hunts, and the East Gallatin River is known for its high trout count and prolific hatches. The well-managed habitat on the ranch, coupled with like-minded and low-pressure neighbors, has helped build a ranch with outstanding pheasant, waterfowl, turkey, and whitetail hunting.

Main Street Bozeman and its world-class offering of culinary options, trendy shops, outdoor vibe, and artsy culture is a short 20± minute drive from the ranch. Bozeman’s local Bridger Bowl Ski Area is a 40± minute drive, and the “largest skiing in America” at Big Sky Ski and Summer Resort is an hour drive south along the Gallatin River. Bozeman-Yellowstone International Airport is less than ten minutes away, making for easy commutes.

The location of the ranch is not only alluring to the entire family, but also enriches its investment value. Large tracts of recreational land, including live water such as the East Gallatin River, within 20± minutes to Bozeman are few and far between, making the East Gallatin River Ranch one of the smartest land investments available on the market today. Bozeman is the fastest-growing micropolitan city in the United States for the past four years in a row.
