Shields River Lodge is nestled between the Bridger, Absaroka, and Crazy Mountains along the productive Shields River, in the heart of the Shields River Valley. The lodge sits in the center of 283± acres of pristine Southwestern Montana land with one mile of the Shields River, a guide favorite for fishable trout water, making up the eastern boundary. Run as a fly fishing lodge the past two years, the 14,000± SF compound comprises nine bedrooms and 10.5 bathrooms with breathtaking views stretching as far as the eye can see of the Absaroka, Bridger, and Crazy Mountain ranges out every window. The stunning log structure could be used as a single-family residence or in various other ways. Enjoy a cup of coffee on the expansive deck while watching the sunrise and wildlife come alive or a glass of wine as the sun slips below the mountains. The striking improvements are only bested by the hundreds of deeded acres to recreate on. Located just outside Clyde Park, close to the historic town of Livingston, and not far from Bozeman’s international airport, Shields River Lodge is offered turnkey and is move-in ready for the next owner to begin their Montana adventure.
