Minutes from Helena’s bustling and historic capital city, Rattlesnake Creek Ranch invites visitors to slow their pace and step back in time. Featuring minimal improvements and a deep-rooted connection with nature, the ranch offers a rare opportunity to purchase a large landholding in a tightly held region adjacent to BLM and National Forest lands that offer out-the-back-gate access to abundant and unlimited recreation.
When entering the ranch, the main trail follows along bubbling Rattlesnake Creek, a corridor frequented by wildlife, including elk and deer that call the ranch and region home. The trail passes by a historic log cabin built shortly before the homestead land patent was finalized in 1920. Rising up from the creek bottomlands, the ranch features rock outcroppings, timbered hillsides, and beautiful grassy meadows with big Elkhorn Mountain views. The ranch resembles a colorful painting in springtime with the abundance and variety of wildflowers that blanket the meadows.
A new owner may choose to construct a full-time residence, getaway cabin, or family retreat on the ranch, taking full advantage of its beauty and privacy while still close to the Helena Valley and the variety of amenities and services located there. Also, this mountain property would serve as an excellent candidate for a conservation easement for the conservation-minded buyer. This mountain ranch is available for sale for the first time ever, as it has remained in one family for over 100 years.
