This rare piece of history sits in between Big Timber, Montana, and Columbus, Montana, just 30± minutes to each town. With dates carved in stone (literally), this remarkable treasure dates back to 1872. The “halfway house” welcomed weary travelers on the Bozeman-Miles City stage line. As evidenced in the original abstract, a formal transfer to its first private owner was signed by President Grover Cleveland in 1886. Preserved and transformed in 2012, a contemporary addition joins the south wall of the original stone house to provide unobstructed views of the White Beaver Valley. A manicured bluegrass lawn gently gives way to pastures and prairies traversed by a mile of spring creek and two year-round high-producing springs on 400± acres. Elk, deer, antelope, and upland game abound. A passively solar-heated hanger and grass airstrip will welcome your Super Cub, while the rustic barn, corral, and shed provide a home for your horses. The past and present converge in this private, tranquil, one-of-a-kind property. As you drive through Stonehouse Ranch, stunning views of the Absarokee Mountains rise dramatically to the south and provide one of the most impressive mountain vistas in the state. This ranch is in one of Montana’s most beautiful, recreationally diverse, and highly sought-after areas. The property is comprised of beautiful rolling pastures, covered draws, incredible mountain views, and springs. Just 10± minutes north of small-town Reed Point, Montana, this property is the perfect mix of an agriculturally rich environment, excellent year-round access, and an incredible amount of wildlife, from elk to upland birds.
