Big Timber house description
The Harrison house is situated about a quarter mile from the river. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Despite its colorful history, it is completely refurbished and offers all of the modern amenities such as telephone, WI-FI, cable, and air conditioning. It has four bedrooms and three baths. With a futon and a non-conforming bedroom, the Harrison House can accommodate 11 people.
Additionally, if you are a large group, you can rent the Lewis and Clark Cabin which sleeps 5 people. So, your total group would be 16 people.
While staying at the Harrison House, you will have complete access to the 800 acre Vermillion Ranch. The ranch is located at the confluence of Sweetgrass Creek and the Yellowstone River, the longest free-flowing river in the U.S. The ranch has over a mile and a half of the Yellowstone River flowing through our ranch, and as a guest, you will have private access to one of North America’s premier trout streams. In addition to the Yellowstone, you are a short drive from the Boulder River and the Stillwater River, as well as a seemingly endless supply of small mountain streams and lakes.
The ranch consists of 800 acres of agricultural lands and river bottom and is populated with robust populations of deer, pheasants, geese, ducks, and Sandhill Cranes. Our family has owned the ranch since 1971. We have protected the ranch through a conservation easement with the Montana Land Reliance. It is a great example of agriculture providing wonderful habitat for fish and wildlife.
As a guest of the Vermillion Ranch, you will have access to the best wildlife and fishing Montana has to offer. Like most ranches, life on the ranch moves at your own pace and provides a relaxing refuge from the hectic, outside world. Days are filled with fishing, hiking, horseback riding, or just relaxing. If you are looking for an off-the-beaten-path escape, the Vermillion Ranch is the perfect home base for a Montana Vacation.
