Twin Bridges cottage description

A small town set amid five mountain ranges with four rivers converging within a few miles. I can't imagine being anywhere else for very long.

Twin Bridges is an agricultural community with 400 full time residents. With trout streams all around you can purchase an RL WInston Rod from the horses mouth so to speak and fish with it in minutes.

I purchased this unfinished home in 2005 and completed it over the next few years. All door and window trims were custom made from five species of hardwood. The floor is oak on the main floor. The kitchen is small but functional and you can see the river from the sink. Wildlife abounds in the neighborhood.

Keywords: Fishing custom cottage. River views. Rural agricultural community

We celebrate the natural beauty around us and the cowboy way of life here. Our town stays busy with ranching throughout the year. This is still the wild west so be prepared to take care of yourself, you may not see other humans on your journeys in these parts. Twin Bridges is home to the Madison County Fairgrounds hosting, the Floating Flotilla River Parade the last weekend each July,and the four day Madison County Fair the second weekend of August each year. Fly in to Bozeman, Helena, Missoula, Idaho Falls or Butte and drive in to this easy to find town between Highway 90 and Interstate 15....moreless

                            Twin Bridges is a very small ranching and fishing (fly) town. We were there for the fishing. The other rentals in town are available through fishing outfitters. This property has been renovated so kitchen and bath are nice. The main bedroom is adequate but the upper bedroom is really only for children or very small adults. When we were there (Aug. 1 - Sept. 1 2012) No WIFI. No TV. The owner promises TV is coming but not WIFI. So check first. (Twin Bridges does NOT have community WIFI.) There is a washer dryer on the ground floor. The $1000 pet deposit is way way too high. Forget what you read about the Blue Anchor Cafe. It has been closed for over a year. All in all a nice place close to the river and restaurants. You can walk to town. The three restaurants (Old hotel($$$$), The shack($), Wagon Wheel($)) and a small grocery store are 3 blocks away. The fly fishing outfitters are in the same area. The famous Sweetgrass Rods (boo boys) is two blocks away and The Winston Rod Co is at the other end of town. We were pleased with the accommodations and would recommend the property (with WIFI and TV). The fly fishing is great and I recommend 4rivers Fishing Co for guided trips.

                            Recommended for: Pet owners, age 55+.

                          Why the Owner Chose Twin Bridges:
                          I am happy to share this special place with guests. This is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beauty everywhere you look any time of year.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          The view from the deck of this home is breathtaking. The fishing is world class and the cowboys are authentic. Town is a safe place to walk and people are friendly. Neighbors wave to each other in their travels. The access to rivers, state parks and national parks within 100 miles is amazing. Yet the beauty right here makes it tough to leave this neighborhood. There are 209 homes in this town and half are occupied year round. Catch up on the local gossip over coffee in the morning at the grocery store or fly shop.
