Situated on the banks of the wild and scenic West Boulder River, the Historic West Boulder River Refuge allows you to experience the wilds of Montana from the rustic living of the handcrafted authentic fishing cabins or the McLeod Guesthouse! Relax and spend your time fly fishing or whitewater rafting the waters of the popular Boulder Rivers or hiking the Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness or just sitting by the campfire. This well-established family-owned and operated resort property is being offered for the first time in 50 years and has served as a basecamp for many anglers, hunters, outdoor enthusiasts and recreationalists. Originally founded in the early 1900s, the Historic West Boulder River Refuge features a 3,000 square foot five bedroom three bath home and offers a variety of accommodations including a guest house, five rustic fishing cabins, five apartments, post office rental, RV hookups and central shower house with laundry facilities.

Area recreation includes backcountry hiking and camping, mountain lake fishing up the Boulder Valleys during the summer and rafting on the main Boulder and Yellowstone Rivers. Winter supports rugged mountain snowmobiling with 25 miles of groomed local trails with access to open play areas and Independence Mine. Many species of big game can be found throughout the Boulder Valleys and the nearby Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness area, offering excellent local big game hunting. The West Boulder River offers excellent fly fishing with many species of trout including cutthroat, rainbow and browns.
