Nestled in the shadow of the Crazy Mountains, this 951± acre property is a little over an hour from Bozeman in the tightly held Shields River Valley. Made up of two parcels of pristine wilderness, the property is contiguous on 1.5 sides (2± miles of property boundary) to thousands of acres of Gallatin National Forest.

Known for its crystal-clear water and scenic beauty, the Shields River flows through the northern portion of the property for over half a mile, offering fly-fishing opportunities for native cutthroat and brook trout. Over a mile of both Mill Creek and Deep Creek meander through the ranch, along with a little less than half a mile of the South Fork of the Shields River, providing habitat for diverse wildlife on the property.

The ranch supports elk, moose, deer, blue and sharp-tailed grouse, antelope, and various other wildlife that migrate up and down the riparian corridor from the mountains to the creeks and river. Tucked away with unparalleled privacy and surrounded by towering peaks, the ranch includes two cabins to retreat to.

The rustic yet elegant 1,596± square-foot, two-bed, one-bath skip-peeled log home with loft sleeps 12. An outdoor hot tub, sauna, and deck are the perfect places to watch the alpenglow on the mountains. An additional two-bedroom hard-peeled guest cabin with an outhouse sits just down the hill along the creek amongst the mature pines. Both structures are true log stacks with tree log corners and saddle notches.

This awe-inspiring property sits amongst the rugged beauty of the surrounding landscape, adjacent to one of Montana’s most magnificent mountain ranges, the Crazy Mountains, with trout fishing on the Shields River, meandering creeks, vast grassy meadows, towering trees, and unparalleled panoramic views.
