This is the Wild West and Big Sky Country. Montana still has less than One Million residents in the entire state and is the 4th largest state in the US. We still enjoy the wide open country and breathtaking beauty. Wildlife viewing opportunities are abundant.
The property is a 75 acre working Gentelmen\'s Ranch and Home to our family. It allows for the opportunity to see wildlife right in your own backyard. Just out the front door there are opportunities for Fishing, Hiking, Horseback Riding, Mountain Biking, Snowmobiling and more. This is a place to simply sit around the fire visiting with friend and family or get outside and explore.
Missoula and the surrounding county have roughly roughly 125K residents, as well as the University of Montana, \"Go Grizzlies\". There are 3 major rivers in the area: Clark Fork, Bitterroot and Blackfoot all of them with great fishing opportunities. Missoula offers a bustling downtown with shops, resturants and taverns like the Old West. Many Cultural activities are available to visitors from Concert to Symphony, of all genres. Missoula is home to the Rockey Mountain Elk Foundation and Museum
Breathtaking scenery and wildlife. Incredibly outdoor activities no matter the season. A chance to unwind and enjoy a place like no other.

Missoula International Airport services many non-stop flights daily. Carriers include: Delta, United, Alaska, Northwest, Continental and Allegiant Air.
A car is a must as there is so much to see and do in every direction. The ranch is 12 miles from the town of Lolo and 8 miles south of Missoula for all your shopping needs. Closest sit-down resturant is the renowned Lolo Steak House or visit the Historic Lumberjack Saloon.
You will NOT be able to hear the noice of the city or neighbors. The stars are plentiful and light the night sky. You may never want to leave.
One common statement by those who visit is that the people who live in Montana are just downright friendly. Largely because Montana is founded on Rural Communities, everyone just looks out and is there to offer a helping hand if one is needed.
