The Great Divide Ranch offers 146± deeded acres and has accommodations for up to 60 guests. The property has the potential to be a fabulous private estate, lodge, outfitter destination, cooperate retreat, or bed and breakfast. Nestled between the Pintler, Flint, and Sapphire Mountain Ranges, this gem is surrounded by public land. There are multiple sources of live water on the ranch, and the Middle Fork of Rock Creek meanders through it for over a half mile, offering fabulous fishing opportunities. Moose Lake borders the northern boundary of the ranch with a private boat dock and lake access. Additionally, there is a large, spring fed pond on the ranch which was stocked with trout in years past. Its water remains cool all summer and provides a perfect spot for waterfowl to rest in seclusion.

The original homestead is a log cabin constructed in the early 1900’s. It rests on the edge of the meadow and overlooks the creek, offering serene views and a charming glimpse of the past. The ranch is 25± miles from Philipsburg, a quaint 19th century mining town, and is nestled in the foreground of the Pintler Mountain Range. It’s difficult to describe just how beautiful it is. Outdoor enthusiasts love this part of Montana due to its panoramic mountain vistas and abundant wildlife. The ranch is an expansive campus of cabins, homes, entertainment venues, and a commercial kitchen/dining/bar combo. In order to comprehend this location’s possibilities, you must see it. Evenings are best spent enjoying nature’s symphony, which drifts pleasantly to one’s ear from the river, or lounging on the shores of Moose Lake with its deep aqua-green water.

Recreational venues are available on and off the ranch. The newly constructed library cabin is located on the lake shore and offers a restful reading sanctuary. Anglers will eagerly test their skill at catching a trout on the private half mile of Rock Creek, which draws fly rod enthusiasts from afar. The stream originates in the deep natural springs of the Sapphire and Pintler mountain ranges and provides moisture for the verdant pastures along its banks. Deep breaths of crisp morning air are a delightful way to start a fair-weather day, which can end in balmy relaxation on the shores of the lake. Picturesque wilderness areas with trailheads are just a few miles from the ranch. Equestrian enthusiasts will be thrilled with hundreds of miles of trails to explore the wild and scenic mountain ranges. ATV users will appreciate all the accessible public land that can be explored.

The Great Divide ranch is surrounded by three distinct mountain ranges, the Flint Range to the northeast; the Pintlers to the south; and the Sapphires to the southwest/west/northwest. Recreational opportunities abound in all three of these ranges. The property is move-in ready for horses, with barns and large, irrigated pastures. Mountain lakes dot these ranges and do not have frequent visitors, offering an authentic wilderness experience. The majority of these backcountry lakes impart fantastic fishing opportunities, making a long hike or horseback ride rewarding for anyone who wants to get away from it all or enjoys the aggressive strike of a hungry trout when a line is cast. This 146-acre ranch is a dramatically beautiful river/lake property with incredible wildlife habitat.
