The Smith River Canyon Ranch offers a rare opportunity to own Smith River frontage in a breathtakingly beautiful and remote area of Montana where the land is very closely held and highly sought after. The river borders the ranch for over a half mile on the lower west end of the property and provides blue ribbon trout fishing within a 20 minute ATV ride from the headquarters. The diverse terrain includes open grassy benches that roll down through deeply wooded coulees, to towering limestone cliffs that frame the canyon where the Smith River flows below.

The ranch’s main house was built in 1984 and offers a newly remodeled main lodge. The main house is 3,200 SF on one level with a modern kitchen, large main living and dining area, along with 4 bedrooms.  Additionally, the house has a large wrap around deck perfect for enjoying the views of the valley and Big Belt Mountains. Also located in the main yard are 3 cabins each including 2 bedrooms and lofts, an open-faced storage shed and a large garage with unfinished living quarters on the upper floor.
