                                  Year Purchased: 2007

                                  About the owner: Chris and I operate Homestake Lodge year-round. We live in a home on-site. We both grew up in Maine and came to Montana in 2003. We started our XC ski area and lodge in 2007 and are continuing to grow the business. We are outdoor enthusiasts and love what we do and where we the BIG SKY!

                                  Why the Owner Chose Whitehall:
                                  We live completely off-grid. All power is generated by solar panels on the barn and backed up by a generator. We use very little propane. We have a little slice of heaven in a peaceful spot under the mountains. We have an endless amount of trails out the back door; some of which are ours, and some of which are forest service. We live 3 miles from the Continental Divide, 10 miles from Butte, and 3 miles from a lake. There is lots to do in the immediate vicinity and even more in the surrounding area. All buildings were constructed in 2008. We live on the Boulder Batholith so there are many interesting and fun HUGE boulders to look at or play in.
