Property description

The Big Hole River, a world-renown wild trout fishery, perfect for your fly fishing vacation - is a stone's throw away.

This historic house is located right in the middle of Melrose, Montana with the Big Hole River and the bars/restaurants within a few minutes walk in each direction. It is a well-cared-for and charming turn-of-the-century home that is perfect for launching your adventures. It is a two bedroom, one bath house with bunks in each room - hence the name 'Bunkhouse' and it's perfect for groups 2-6 people.

One place in bunkhouse makes it fun and unique is the great room (living room and dinning room) that is 30 feet long by 12 feet wide. It's perfect for kicking back and socializing with your group. No cramped quarters here!

With newly laid wood floors and fresh paint, this comfortable, quiet home is the perfect getaway for a fishing or hunting trip - or even a local wedding. You can walk to the river, fly shops, restaurant (for a steak sandwich) or bar (for one of their famous Moscow Mules) or make your own meals in the full kitchen.

Sleeps up to 6 people comfortably (3 twin, 1 double, 1 queen beds, large couch and pads.) Spacious great room (living room/dining room) for gathering, playing cards, tying flies and telling tall tales of 'the big one that may or may not have got away'.

Big Hole River

Car: Necessary

Melrose is a quaint little town located halfway between Butte and Dillon. It is world famous for its trout fishing as the The Big Hole River flows right through town. The Big Hole River is a blue-ribbon trout steam that has rainbow, brown, cutthroat and grayling. The river is floatable most of the season, with wading most successful in late July, August, September and early October. Melrose makes a perfect launching point for fishing excursions as the Beaverhead, Ruby and Jefferson Rivers - all famous for blue-ribbon trout fishing - are within an easy drive of Melrose. We are smack dab in the middle between fantastic lake fishing (ice fishing too) on Georgetown Lake and Clark Canyon Reservoir - equal distances at about 45-50 miles. Wade fishing on other creeks nearby also exists.

Hunting for Deer, Antelope and Elk near Melrose is world-class. Melrose is surrounded by National Forest. The mountains surrounding the Big Hole range from about 7600 feet, to over 10,600 feet. The Bitterroot, Pioneer and Anaconda-Pintler mountains are known far and wide for their beauty. Duck hunting is excellent around the Beaverhead and Jefferson rivers.

Rock climbing at the Humbug Spires in very close. About 5 miles up the road - then about 4 miles up the Moose Creek drainage, there are countless spires ranging from 50 to over 500 feet. The most popular is The Wedge, hosting a wide variety of routes. Predominantly traditional, with a few bolted slab lines.

Attractions: The Big Hole National Battlefield is a memorial to the people who fought and died here on August 9 and 10, 1877; combatants in a five month conflict that came to be called the Nez Perce. Big Hole National Battlefield is located ten miles west of Wisdom, Montana on state highway 43. From I-15 at Dillon, Montana take highway 287 northwest to Wisdom, then highway 43, ten miles west.

Hot springs, ghost towns, rodeos, golf, lake fishing, solitude - all exist nearby.

It's a hidden paradise.
