Absarokee house description

Located along the most scenic route to Yellowstone National Park, this Montana Stillwater Riverfront Retreat is a 2 bedroom/3 bath 2.800 sq ft newer luxury home located directly on the banks of the Stillwater River, one of the premier trout streams in America. If you're looking for a secluded Montana destination for fly fishing, exloring, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, etc., you won't find a more spectacular location.

Professionally decorated in antique western motif, this spacious retreat can accommodate 6-8 people (2 bedrooms and a sleeping loft with a day bed and a futon) and boasts all of the comforts and conveniences of a new home, including satellite TV, high speed internet, enormous kitchen (with dishwasher and trash compactor), sauna shower and jacuzzi bathtub, radiant heat floors, wood burning stove, insulated blinds, all on a completely private 40 acre property with panoramic views of the river, mountains and surrounding landscape.

The Stillwater River, which flows into the Yellowstone, is absolutely beautiful and wild and fishing pressure on the Stillwater River is moderate. This is a 'locals favorite' river where anglers will experience first-class fishing with no crowds - your own riverfront property to fly fish or float down the river.

Five miles from the quaint town of Absarokee, this riverfront home is at the end of a private half mile driveway, only a short 1 hour drive to the Billings airport and a 90 minute drive to Yellowstone National Park. The Stillwater Valley area, explored by Lewis and Clark and boasting numerous markers along the Bozeman Trail, is a 75 mile stretch of two lane roads that starts at Columbus, travels through Absarokee to Fishtail, Dean and Nye where you'll find the surroundings peaceful and the scenery spectacular.

Enjoy the Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness close by with unparalleled wildlife viewing, outdoor exploration, hiking, back packing and camping or venture to nearby scenic Red Lodge Mountain ski resort (45 minutes) offering snow skiing and golfing at several courses.

Enjoy world renown fly fishing for rainbow, cutthroat and brown trout right out the back door, whitewater river rafting, horseback riding hiking, or just relaxing on the wrap-around porches or upstairs decks with the sound of the rushing water. Wildlife abounds around the 3 ponds located on the property: mule deer, whitetail deer, bald eagles, sand hill cranes and great blue herons are just some of the species frequently seen.

If you're looking for a true Montana vacation experience with 'A River Runs Through It' feel and your own private fly fishing location or need a longer term rental to relax and take in all that this part of the country has to offer, you won't find a more perfect place. Short term and long term rental terms available.
