Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: David and Karen Lail purchased Broken Leg Ranch in 2003 with the intention of restoring the old Montana homestead to it's original 'Western' theme while discreetly incorporating the latest in modern amenities. The Ranch has been used as a private retreat for the Owner's friends and family and has never before been available to the public. The Owners used authentic Western building materials and had several barns dating from the 1800's deconstructed so that the original building materials could be used in new construction on the Ranch. The project's blacksmith created the ironwork used throughout and on-site cabinetmakers constructed the kitchen cabinets and countertops from reclaimed barnwood and even floorboards from the first drugstore in Montana !! The fitness facility is constructed as an old fashioned horse barn.

Why the Owner Chose Bigfork:
We bought Broken Leg Ranch in order to preserve this small piece of the vanishing West for the enjoyment of generations to come after us.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
A healthy and peaceful retreat ...perfect for hiking, fishing and outdoor adventure in the lap of Western luxury !! The views of the Swan Mountains from the meadow in the middle of the Ranch and from the front porches of the cabins are simply stunning...We love to garden, stay fit and eat healthy and it's all there at Broken Leg Ranch.
