Fishing and hiking guides: Our 3 sons run Sweetwatertravel Co. and provide excellent and experienced guides for our clients. It is recommended that you hire guides early in your week for wade fishing, river floats, or jet boating so that you will learn how to fish our local waters. See the contact info on our Vermillion Ranch web site . The ranch link is just below this paragraph. Also, ask about our hiking guide, Felicia Ennis, who is congenial and capable. You will enjoy your days with the Sweetwater guides and our hiking consultant. We also can put you in touch with a large family ranch, where you can ride, so basically staying at our ranch is like having your own private dude ranch to enjoy with tons of privacy! Arrange your activities to suit your own time schedules, and don't forget to relax in the peace and quiet. If you are not the relaxing type, you can always connect to our high speed internet to keep busy. Also, bring your binoculars to view the deer, antelope and birds that visit daily.

                                      The Vermillion Ranch (800 acres) sits at the confluence of Sweetgrass Creek and the Yellowstone River. It consists of river bottom, 1 mile of Yellowstone frontage with mountain views, and meadows populated with wildlife. Excellent fly fishing in our area, and we can provide guides. We are 9 miles East of the quaint western town of Big Timber (2,500 pop.), a site for rodeos, country fairs and cutting horse events. Enjoy gourmet dining at the Grand Hotel, featured on the national historic register. For kids, a movie theater, golf course, and water slide are nearby. Explore the many hiking trails in National Forest Lands, the Crazy Mtns and the Absaroka/Beartooth Range. Swimming, rafting, and tubing on the rivers is great summer fun and uncrowded.

                                      Year Purchased: 1972

                                      About: My husband Dale, a surgeon who loves to fly fish and hunt, and I bought this ranch as soon as we arrived in Montana. We love living on the Yellowstone River, and our 3 sons now operate an international fly fishing company in Livingston, Mt--Sweetwatertravel. We have enjoyed watching our clients take advantage of all the recreational opportunities at the Vermillion Ranch and in our region. We do not intrude in your vacation, but we are here to help you with any arrangements or questions you have. I am originally from Maine, Dale from Kansas, and we met in Boston, where Dale trained and we lived for about 10 years. Living here is a pleasure we like to share!

                                      Why Livingston:
                                      Dale and I bought the ranch for our enjoyment, but since it had 2 historic homes on the property, we decided to rent the Lewis 'n Clark Cabin and the Harrison Homestead seasonally. It is fun for us to watch others delight in our location, privacy, peace, and excellent fishing!We never tire of hearing compliments about the Lewis 'n Clark Cabin or the Harrison Homestead.

                                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                                      800 ACRES WITH NEARLY 2 MILES OF PRIVATE YELLOWSTONE RIVER FRONTAGE-- BIG TROUT OPPORTUNITIES!

You will enjoy your days with the Sweetwater guides! HIKING:Our hiking guide is Felica Ennis, who is congenial and capable. she grew up in Montana and knows the area well. She will take you into the Beartooth or Crazy Mts., both of which offer exceptional hiking.
