Absarokee house description

Located on the Circle T Ranch, this Montana Stillwater Riverfront Home is a 2 bedroom 3 bath 2.800 sq ft 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, wildlife viewing, exloring, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, ranching experiences on a multi-generational historic working ranch, you won't find a more spectacular location.

Decorated with original family antiques, this spacious retreat can accommodate 6 people (2 bedrooms and sleeping lofts with a day bed and a futon). Large kitchen and dining area, sauna shower, jacuzzi tub, radiant floor heat and wood stove, Wifi, satellite t.v., and the open floor concept allow all the comforts while enjoying old west atmosphere. This spacious home with the surrounding windows and decks allow unique wildlife viewing and photography opportunities on the owners ranch with panoramic views of the river, mountains, and surrounding landscape. An active eagles nest upriver provides entertainment as eagles fly the river fishing.

The Stillwater River, which flows into the Yellowstone is absolutely beautiful and wild, fishing pressure 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 explore the river.

Three wetland mitigation ponds provide unique opportunities to view Montana's birds, wildlife, and flora in this unique natural wildlife area. Photography and birdwatching opportunities abound with all natural bird species.

Five miles from the quaint town of Absarokee, this riverfront home is at the end of a private ranch road only a short 1 hour drive from Billings.
Enjoy the Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness close by with unparalleled wildlife viewing, outdoor exploration, hiking, and back packing.
The route to Yellowstone Park from the ranch is a beautiful day trip that takes you through the historic town of Red Lodge onto the Beartooth Highway to the Silver Gate entrance. It takes approximately 2.5 hours from the ranch to get to Yellowstone Park due to scenery and mountain switchbacks.

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 porch or upstairs decks with the sound of the Stillwater River.

Participation in ranching activities optional and always welcome.

              As well as Stillwater Riverfront fishing, the property has three wildlife viewing ponds which provide many opportunities for viewing birds and mammals in their natural habitat.

              Guests can hike or ride horseback to the historic Bozeman Trail wagon snubbing post or travel the leisurely Mexican Joe Creek Trail. Both are located on private land of owner.

              Horseback rides are individualized for guests.
