Year Purchased: 2000

About: I always use VRBO when I travel so it was easy to place this home with them. I retired from a 32 year career in 2006. My goal was to start a lavender farm on the property and that is what I am doing!

Why Hamilton:
My family is from Montana and we love it here!

beautiful mountain setting; 33 acres of wildlife habitat; 2 trout ponds
