Manager info

Year Purchased: 1997

About: JB & Lennae Klyap have managed & Outfitted Dome Mountain Ranch for nearly 20 years-they know how important 'Montana Time' is, and they sure know how to provide an unforgettable Montana vacation. Each have a deep knowledge of surrounding attractions and know the habits of Dome Mountain's abundant wildlife.

Why Gardiner:
Montana is known for it's wide open spaces, and the Elkview Guest House certainly offers that, and then some. The nearest neighbors are miles away. This home is located behind an electric private gate and rests in the middle of Dome Mountain's summer playground for hundreds of Elk, Deer, Wolves, Big Horns and more...many guests see more variety of wildlife from the front porch of this secluded guest home than all of Yellowstone Park.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Private working ranch setting, located at the base of the iconic 'Dome Mountain'. Minutes from Yellowstone Park. The arched entry way welcomes all adventurers. This home provides some of the most private and quiet Montana vacations available.
