Ennis house description
Spring is finally here. Yahoo!!!
For Southwest Montana, this means spring fly fishing season will soon be coming into very high gear. Even better, we have had an almost ideal snow pack scenario this winter. The snow pack in the Madison Range is right at 100 percent of normal. It has also been a not-too-cold kind of winter with spring so far (just a few days as of this writing) seeming to follow along with this trend.
This means the snow melt and subsequent spring run off should be moderate and drawn out so the rivers won't get too crazy as the weather gets warmer. The hatches should thus be on time and the fishing up through May should be it usual fantastic self. Last year, this was not the case because of the enormous snow pack which pushed back fly hatches and even made the Madison un-fishable in early July. No fun. This year, though, is entirely different. The river should be fishing great.
On offer are two options for guests. First, the entire house can be rented for up to one week. This is ideal for a decent sized group (five or more people). Second, I have a B&B option for fly fishermen that is suitable for up to four guests. These guests would stay in a room with three single beds, a room with a double bed, and a family room with a double hide-away in the basement and have full access to the kitchen for all meals in addition to a private bathroom, shower, washer and dryer, cable TV, and pretty much everything else the full house offers.
I am a native Montanan and have lived in Ennis Montana since 2004. I know all too well how beautiful, special, and unique this part of Southwest Montana is and what it has to offer visitors. Ennis is just 70 miles from Yellowstone National Park and it is right in the middle of the Madison Valley of which one half of the land is publicly owned (either national forest or designated wilderness). There is no problem with access to incredibly beautiful areas with wildlife watching and outdoor sports that you'll remember for the rest of your life.
There are thousands of people who already know this. This is why our hotels and B&Bs often book out during the most popular times during the summer. This can also be the case in the spring and fall.
The reason I want to rent out my house during some of these times is to have the chance to focus on niche markets and niche needs. During the spring, I focus on fly fishing enthusiasts. During the summer, I focus on families with kids, dogs, and multiple agendas. For some families, hotels and B&Bs are not always the best option. For the fall, I focus on fly fishing and elk hunters. They are here for a single reason: to fish or to hunt. They are not here to shop or do other tourist things.
The entire house can sleep 11 people in beds and has floor space for kids to "camp" indoors. The backyard is large and grassy and is perfect for dogs and kids to play. The deck is large and has a million dollar view of the Madison Range.
The Madison River (a blue-ribbon fly fishing river) is just a 10 minute walk away. The best trail heads into the Madison Valley, with access to the very best elk hunting in Montana, is about 30 minutes drive away. While I can't guarantee that you'll land a 24 inch rainbow or shoot a six-point bull elk, I can guarantee you that after a day of hunting or fishing you will have a warm, dry, and comfortable place to land. There is a laundry to clean and dry your clothes, a hot shower to clean up yourself, and a full kitchen at your disposal. If you eat in, there is satellite TV to watch while eating before going to bed and starting it all over again the next day.
Give me a call and I'll tell you more.
