The famed West Boulder River Valley is considered one of the most beautiful mountain valleys in southwest Montana, located just south of Livingston off of Interstate-90. In this pristine environment lies the West Boulder Reserve, a 1,300± acre ranch community that features 2.5± miles of both sides of the West Boulder River, a tremendous trout fishery, and access to the adjoining National Forest and the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness Area. The West Boulder Reserve was established in the 1970s by a group of talented easterners bent on establishing a recreational lifestyle far apart from the hustle and bustle of the east coast. They were counseled by one of the country’s premier attorneys. Even now, over fifty years later, the covenants and by-laws of the West Boulder Reserve Association remain a proud model for practical and wise land stewardship to many other ranch communities.

The West Boulder Angling Retreat offering includes a 20± acre lot, a 5,000± SF custom home inspired by the Old Faithful Inn at Yellowstone National Park, and one of only twenty memberships to the West Boulder Reserve. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience one of the west’s most beautiful settings. The views from the property and home are incredible; overlooking the unspoiled 1,300± acre Reserve, the river valley, and the snow-capped peaks of the Absaroka Mountains are unmatched. In this natural landscape yet close to amenities, just 20± miles from Livingston, Montana and 28± miles from the quaint town of Big Timber, Montana, a grand adventure awaits you, your family, friends, and of course, your fly rod.
