Western Montana Pasture And Rec Ranch In The Flathead River Valley


 The Big Sky River Ranch is one of the most unique investment opportunities in Western Montana. The entire property overlooks the underdeveloped Flathead River, with may picturesque views that rival some of the best throughout the entire state of Montana. Adjoining the river, and directly across from the ranch, is a public conservation easement that allows access to the river for your recreational pleasure. As you look down the river corridor, you’ll notice views of the breathtaking Mission Mountain Range, and as you look directly across the river from the ranch, you’ll see the velvet hills of the Ferry Basic Elk Conservation area. With Vanderburg Creek running through this ranch and three springs throughout, there is year-round water for wildlife and cattle, making this ranch very desirable! Each water source has its own water right that will be transferred to the new owner. By owning more than 500 acres, it’s no secret that you could have all the privacy you’ve ever wanted while living the Big Sky Country dream. In addition to the privacy found on the ranch, there are thousands of acres of federally owned land adjacent to the ranch, which will likely never be developed, preserving your private paradise. The ranch would be perfect for riding horses, hiking, snowmobiling, or riding other offroad vehicles, and while hunting isn’t allowed on the ranch, there are millions of acres of national forest and state lands that can be enjoyed in other nearby areas of western Montana. It’s not uncommon to see elk, mule deer, whitetail deer, bears, fox, coyotes, geese, ducks, eagles, or even the occasional moose on the ranch! Don’t worry about being off the grid either when you’re at this ranch. With water, electric, and other amenities available, you’ll have everything you possibly need to make this gorgeous property fit your needs. The property is only 2 hours from the famous Glacier National Park and the Bob Marshall Wilderness. The breathtaking recreational paradise referred to as Flathead Lake is only 45 minutes from the property, and the National Bison Range is only 15 minutes away! Other nearby attractions include the Clark Fork River, the Thompson River, the Noxon Reservoir, Lake Pend Oreille, Snow Bowl Ski Area, Blacktail Mountain Ski Area, Big Mountain Ski Area, Little Money Sheep Conservation area and more. Missoula is only about 50 minutes away, where there is an international airport. If you happen to be a pilot, who is capable of flying your own plane, there is an approximately 1,700’ paved landing strip on the ranch that would allow for you to fly directly to and from the ranch. With the proper permission, bird hunting, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, or trail riding is all possible on lands adjoining the ranch. In fact, there are miles of trails, some of which even lead to high mountain lakes above the property! If you choose to spend your time fishing on the Flathead River, be prepared to catch anything from trout to bass to whitefish, and even northern pike. There are numerous places and vistas on this ranch that would make for a great home building site. With the purchase of this whole property, you can ensure that nobody else will build nearby you. If you’re not interested in the entire property or perhaps would simply like a smaller slice of this amazing ranch, the property is being offered in many smaller splits. It is possible to buy anywhere from 18 acres +/- all the way up to the entire 540.59. To see other variations of this property, please go to whitetailproperties.com website.
