Property description

The “Back Eddy” is newly renovated, and just on the outskirts of the town of Sheridan with views of the Ruby Mountain range to the southwest and the Tobacco Roots to the northeast. This comfortable home has all modern conveniences. The house sleeps 4 persons and could accommodate 5. The big back yard is great for barbecuing and relaxing with great vistas and shade, and it has a turn around with space for boat trailers. The house is in a private location and a short walk from Main Street downtown.

Sheridan, MT is located in the heart of blue ribbon fly fishing waters, a great jumping off point for exploring the Gold Country of southwest Montana. Set in the Ruby Valley, the Back Eddy is just 8 miles from the town of Twin Bridges with the Beaverhead, Big Hole and Jefferson rivers to the west, and the Madison River a 40 minute drive to the East. The historic restored gold mining town of Virginia City is 14 miles down the road, with options for exploring local history, hiking National Forest trails, driving rural roads for birding, wildlife viewing, searching out long forgotten pioneer settlements or just relaxing and enjoying this beautiful area of the state.

Sheridan has a grocery store, great wine shop, restaurants, a library and a great public swimming pool. We have favorite local guides and outfitters we like to use, and can help you set up fishing trips and shuttles. The house contains maps with hiking trails and information. Upon request, we can make a trip to the grocery store prior to your arrival, or arrange to have catered meals so you can truly enjoy your vacation!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Having traveled many years guiding and arranging fishing trips with my Guided Connections business, I found this region of Montana very inviting. It is fun to be able to share this with other folks with similiar interests of fishing, birding, hiking and taking advantage of the great outdoor opportunites available from Sheridan with the 'Back Eddy' being a great base.

Why the Owner Chose Sheridan:
Beautiful area of MT with lots of great water to fish in very close proxmity. Great fun to have these choices so you can target the river that is fishing best during your visit. Excellent birding on the back roads and a major nesting area for sandhill cranes in the state. Makes for good photo shooting too.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Wonderful sunsets here! Down home town folk and neighbors. A true Western town in a gorgeous valley bordered by mountain ranges in every direction. Wonderful location for artists to visit.
