Kalispell house description

Thompson River Ranch is an unforgettable experience. Gorgeous Log Home with additional cabins, if needed, located on this exclusive, private Montana Ranch. Enjoy your privacy in our spectacular mountain home - 4 bedroom, 3 bath home with stunning panoramic views of Thompson Valley and Thompson River Ranch. Enjoy watching real ranch life from the wrap-around deck.

Thompson River Ranch is one of the few working cattle ranches left in the area and you will have a bird's eye view as the cowboys move cattle across the valley on horseback and work the land. Enjoy full gourmet kitchen and house as many as 15 guests in the log home. Other cabins can be made available if your party is larger for extra fee.

Make it an unforgettable family reunion or a private get-away. The 100,000 acre ranch is nestled between 2 of the more spectacular lakes - Thompson and McGregor Lakes - just off Highway 2. Enjoy hiking, fishing, mountain biking and many more outdoor activities from this spectacular private setting. This ranch was one of the premier dude ranches in the area for over 15 years and has quaint cabins and log home to offer a small, private group of guests. We are now focused on maintaining the ranching heritage and only offer private rentals.

Thompson River Ranch is an excellent location to call home base as you experience Northwest Montana.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: Bultman Family has owned the ranch since 2001 and are the third owners of the property since it was homesteaded in the late 1800's. This is truly a working cattle ranch with all the amenities of a commercial dude ranch. We are dedicated to the heritage of the area and are delighted to share this spiritual place. Please, come and visit and 'Live the Legend'.

                      Why the Owner Chose Kalispell:
                      Log home is perfectly suited for family vacation. For someone who wants to 'get away', this is the perfect place. Easy to get to but you will feel like you're living in another era. Most people don't want to leave after the week is over! Many families have used the home for family reunions, weddings, or just vacation. There are many outdoor activities moments away and you are 40 minutes from Kalispell and Whitefish area.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Experience the legend of Montana life - mountain views, cattle, horses, kittens, goats all are part of the ranch life. Fishing, hiking, skydiving, are minutes away. And are within an hour of every wonderful activity Northwest Montana and the Flathead/Whitefish area can provide you. Truly this home will provide an unforgettable experience.
