Situated between the Bridger Mountains range and the Crazy Mountains, the Spring River Farm on the Shields River offers vast acres of private, peaceful, and unspoiled natural beauty. With approximately 0.67 miles of both sides of the Shields River and another 0.25 miles of spring creek flowing through 189± deeded acres, this property is truly special. The ranch also provides a small pond and fields full of grains, alfalfa, and other legumes for whitetail deer, pheasants, and other wildlife. A beautifully designed 2,700± square feet modern-style home looking over the river completes this dream property and offers a new owner the ability to enjoy the property immediately.

Located 45± minutes from the University town of Bozeman, 30± minutes from Livingston, and 30± minutes from Bridger Bowl Ski Area, the Spring River Farm on the Shields River is close to amenities but far enough away to enjoy the natural beauty of the land and wildlife. Approximately 4.5± miles off Highway 89 on Shields River Road, the property location is exceptionally private. The farm is a sportsman’s dream, with world-class fly fishing, top-end deer, pheasants, turkeys, waterfowl, and the occasional moose. A thoughtfully created conservation easement is on 34± acres with limited impact on the property while maximizing the wetlands that the easement protects. Whether you wish to explore hundreds of hiking, mountain biking, or snowshoeing trails nearby or fly fish on the property riverfront, the small pond, or the creeks, the Spring River Farm on the Shields River has something to offer everyone.
