Noon Bear Ranch is perched high on the north side of the divide between the Yellowstone and Stillwater River Valleys, offering sweeping views of the nearby Crazy Mountains. The modest yet charming house, along with a spacious barn and utility buildings, was home to a couple who ran cows and raised hay for over 40 years. As the remaining owner prepares to pass the property on to another generation, all tractors, trailers, ATVs, implements, tools, and equipment will be included, making this ranch turn-key for the new operator.

The ranch features a year-round spring at the top, a solar livestock waterer, several automatic waterers around the barns and corrals, and a seasonal spring in a separate drainage at the bottom. The rolling topography is mostly grass with occasional stands of cedar and ponderosa. Sharptail grouse and Hungarian partridge favor the grasslands, while elk and mule deer frequent the ranch. Though the current owner does not allow hunting, the neighboring property to the south harvests 4-5 elk annually on similar-sized land. The ranch is located in the general tag area of the 575 Hunting District, which allows either sex for elk.

Noon Bear Ranch is conveniently located 30 minutes from the towns of Big Timber, Columbus, and Absarokee, Montana. The Stillwater River is just 20 minutes away via Cow Face Hill Road, and the town of Reed Point, offering basic services and access to the Yellowstone River for fishing and boating, is only 10 minutes away.

This ranch offers the next owner privacy with unbeatable scenery overlooking the Yellowstone River Valley, the Crazy Mountains Range, and abundant native wildlife. Its prime location places you in the heart of Montana, with fly fishing on the Yellowstone and Stillwater Rivers just minutes away. Noon Bear Ranch is about one hour from Billings and 1.25 hours from Bozeman.
