This historic 1880's hand hewn log home is the combination of the original homestead house and a barn that were completely renovated by the family in 2002. While the logs & ranch ring with history the facility is first class.
Our third generation, operating ranch includes the North Fork of the Blackfoot River, two spring creeks and four ponds that hold native trout waiting to challenge fishermen. Guests have exclusive access to these waters and the ranch. The storied Blackfoot river is nearby and other rivers are an easy drive. The ranch is located between Montana's two major national parks and the Bob Marshal wilderness is north of the ranch. We are happy to share our bit of heaven as well as generations of stories! Many of our guests just enjoy the peace & quiet of the ranch & it's surroundings. Lots to enjoy besides the fishing! Please see our khomestead.com website for more information & pictures.

Year Purchased: 1949
About the owner: My family purchased our ranch in 1949. It has been a love affair ever since. Many small ranches in this area have been purchased for summer trophy ranches. Instead, our family has restored the original homestead home into a vacation rental. We enjoy sharing the home as well as the ranch. Guests have exclusive use of the spring creeks, ponds, & access to the N. Fork of the Blackfoot that runs through the ranch. I am happy to tell guests the history of the valley & our 65 years of toil on the ranch.
Why the Owner Chose Ovando: Has been in family for 65 years so it is our roots. Rental income is allowing us to keep the ranch operating. We enjoy sharing it with many wonderful guests.
