Darby farmhouse description

The Running Elk Ranch is a 876 acre cattle ranch on a plateau at 4000 feet with breathtaking 360 degree panoramic views of snow-capped mountains year round. There are 450 acres of lush green irrigated fields and 450 acres of forests with roads for access ie; 4 wheeling and hiking. The ranch is absolutely private. The main house is a very large log cabin with 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, living room, playroom, formal dining room, office, kitchen with separate dining area, and 4 wood fireplaces. There are 2 separate guest houses outside of the main house. The studio apartment has 2 king beds, bathroom with shower, and pullman kitchen (no stove). The other guest apartment is attached to a 3 car garage and has a full bath and 2 queen beds. About a quarter of a mile from the main house, there is a beautiful one bedroom 2 story log cabin house with full kitchen, large full bath, and a 40 ft. porch over looking the Bitterroot wilderness and Como peaks. There is a large horse barn with giant hay loft, workshop, foreman's house, and several other barns. The property is teaming with wildlife. It has its own herd of elf and many deer! There are many hawks and eagles flying overhead. Once you are on the property you definitely feel the peace and solitude of country living. There are approx. 300 head of cattle that add ambiance to the lushness of the land as they are moved from pasture to pasture. The ranch is impeccably clean and cared for. There is water running everywhere from the 10,000 ft mountain glaciers, and a water fall near the house. We have fabulous well water. Lake Como is just up the road, a 10 minute drive, where you can go swimming or boating. This property is great for family reunions, corporate retreats, or weddings. Lots of room to take advantage of. Wonderful romantic place for couples too!
