In the summer, guests are welcome to use the patio and gas grill, and in the winter, a living room with enclosed fireplace offers a warm and cozy setting.
Surrounded by beauty, and close to the 50 mile bike path and wildlife preserve, nature is at your door! We offer a seasonal conversation area at the barn, with sofas, chairs, and the great outdoors. TV is not provided, and with so much to do and see, we promise you won't miss it!
With a location close to all that Missoula and the Bitterroot Valley have to offer, you can be minutes from fishing, music, hiking, biking, or just enjoy our quiet space. We know that once you enter through the gate, you can leave the world behind, and enjoy Montana at it's finest.
We are happy to recommend local food, fly fishing, hunting, or guide services. Western Montana a world-renowned for it's blue ribbon fishing and water activities such as rafting and kayaking.

I need a working e-mail and a US working cell phone for all reservations and, according to the Patriot Act, we keep and maintain guest records. The NeighborhoodWe live in a very rural setting with minimal traffic, crowds, or noise. Montana has roaming ranches with bison, yet share their land with predators, elk, deer, and other wildlife. It is not uncommon to see antelope or deer grazing with cattle.
Located in the heart of the western frontier, many historical sites documenting Lewis and Clark, native american tribes, and mining towns dot the landscape and provide insight and information to the culture that still exists in Montana today. Vigilantes, miners, outlaws, and pioneers have all made Montana's history rich and colorful. There is a saying here that Montana is just one very large town, with exceptionally long roads. You will find most people here to be friendly, helpful and accommodating. Don't be surprised if strangers offer you a friendly wave as you pass on the roads...
NO marijuana...please don't even think about using marijuana at my ranch. I know this is debatable...but not at my ranch. No guns, either...
Rural...fewer than 40 people per square mile...mooooo, moooo.... Getting AroundYou will need transportation... an all wheel drive or mountain bike can get you to some amazing places in Montana, and an inner tube or canoe can give you a view along a river that you will never see from the highway....Summer is our prime time for road repairs and construction, so if you are here between May-September, plan for possible delays. Other Things to NoteGreat hiking, lots of local wildlife, and the occasional elk wanders down the road...The Lee Metcalf WIldlife Preserve is located minutes from our location, as well as the newly constructed Bitterroot Bike trail (approximately 50 miles of riding!) The National Bison Reange is approximately an hour from Missoula, as well as Garnet Ghost Town, Rock Creek Fly fishing, The Stevensville Mission, or the historical town of Hamilton. Montana is abundant with wildlife, so please drive carefully and have a safe trip through our beautiful state!
