River View Ranch is an exclusive and meticulously maintained trophy property that offers a remarkable array of recreational opportunities within its manicured grounds. The ranch’s panoramic views are a picturesque backdrop for all who visit, creating an awe-inspiring atmosphere.

Every detail of River View Ranch has been carefully attended to, reflecting the owner’s commitment to excellence and showcasing their attention to detail. Privacy and security are paramount, ensuring a secluded and serene environment that allows residents and guests to fully unwind and enjoy their time. Abundant wildlife freely roams the property, allowing for captivating encounters with nature and enhancing the overall ranch experience.

The River View Ranch is currently operated as a multi-award-winning luxury hotel. The 12,000-square-foot lodge features a gourmet chef’s kitchen, a great room, and eight private luxury suites, each with patios, fire pits, and stunning views of the private lake. The lodge’s great room and wet bar are perfect for unwinding and having a farm-to-table dinner. A Lakehouse is a hub for daily activities along the water’s edge. An estate home is in place for an owner’s residence or additional lodging, and a horse/event barn works as both a wedding venue and daily equestrian needs. If a new owner wishes to utilize the property as a personal estate, it could easily be done. Overall, 23 bedrooms and 19 bathrooms plus the six RV pads will accomodate many.

The property consists of a varied landscape with extensive river bottom riparian areas, grassy benches, irrigated fields, private lakes, and ponds that transition into timbered foothills and public lands. Adjacent to the Lolo National Forest, the ranch seamlessly connects with the surrounding wilderness.

The healthy populations of elk, deer, and other big game animals that inhabit the ranch make it an excellent destination for hunting enthusiasts. With convenient access to some of the finest fly-fishing streams in the country, anglers will appreciate the exceptional trout fishing available on two private lakes or the renowned Clark Fork River bordering the ranch.

River View Ranch is not just a place for hunting and fishing; the well-maintained hiking and riding trails that extend from the back door of the ranch are a haven for hiking, horseback riding, and outdoor exploration. This quintessential Montana setting provides a harmonious blend of natural beauty and nearby urban comforts and amenities, offering the best of both worlds. The River View Ranch is ideal for families to come together, create lasting memories, and engage in various recreational pursuits within this extraordinary outdoor paradise.
