Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: I love all things outdoors, then enjoy hanging out with friends for good food and conversation. In Ovando, I can do it all, then watch the sun set over the vast and open valley, while enjoying the beverage of my choice.
Why the Owner Chose Ovando: Ovando is real Montana. Open, gorgeous and quiet. It is the place my wife and I go to just relax and not worry about things that need to get done. And now that it is finished, we thought, why not share this place with people from all over that may not get a chance to enjoy Montana for long or often. With multiple access points for world class fishing, endless backcountry room for hunting, skiing and hiking, multiple lakes nearby for all kinds of water activity, it justs seems like a place people will want to vacation in.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse: Space! Time, or a lack of watching it. Real. As in Montana as it was 50 years ago. The famous Trixie's Bar within walking distance. Extremely nice people, without the attitude found in more expensive towns. Endless bird and animal watching, at all times of year.
We have added a "Network Extender" to our house which has created excellent 3 G or better connectivity for your cell or pad.
Make your own unique day, and share it with us.
