Wade or enjoy a private take out/put in on the Dearborn River in the green back yard where no one else fishes in this custom house on 10 acres with sprinkler-fed fruit trees. Don’t be surprised to see deer, geese and ducks in the window nudging their way near the deck, or a bear eating huckleberries along the river in the early morning. if you are especially quiet and observant, the hundreds of acres of park and ranch across the river also have mountain goats, bears, antelope and even the mountain lion.
Help yourself to the library, watch satellite television or DVD movies, or read from the house’s library.
Only few miles from the Missouri Inn over the bridge where the Untouchables was filmed, enjoy the canyon or visit the Lewis and Clark’s Tower Rock and surrounding Park. From this base, see the spetacular Glacier Park or the continent’s largest dinosaur digs to the northwest, float the Lewis and Clark Trail by pontoon boat and lunch at the island where one of the nation's most famous fires occurred, or travel south to Yellowstone National Park or Jackson Hole, each an easy day’s visit.
Hike with tremendous rock views, or enjoy the new, custom kitchen and fisherman’s décor. In the evening, take your pick of 3 spacious bedrooms where at the end of the day 6 extra long beds await or tie a few at the fly-tying table.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Yes, but most guests prefer 'Montana air conditioning' -- open the windows in the cool evenings, close them during the heat of the day. It is amazing, works perfectly when there is no humidity! ...moreless

there is so much to do the teens may put down their cell phones! Most guests are fly fishing, hiking, dinosaur digs, bird watching, or riding the rails. Glacier Park /Yellowstone Parks are 3 hours away, Lewis & Clark Tower Rock is down the road as is The Untouchables bridge. The Charlie Russell Museum in Great Falls less than an hour, there is live music in Craig, and the Museum of the Rockies (dinosaurs) in Bozeman is two scenic hours away.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We are avid outdoor people with political jobs that keep us indoors or reading the news all too often. The men were driving thousands of miles on annual 'vacation' fly fishing the West. One year I persuaded them to rent a week in Montana, and they found hundreds of great spots to fish all where the Dearborn and Missouri Rivers connect. The next year we bought not one but two great houses -- and have not looked back.
Why the Owner Chose Cascade, MT, USA:
We fish in the summer and hunt in the winter ... and there is nothing like leaving the humidity of DC and hanging out on the water.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We drive through Yellowstone to Jackson Hole, go to Fort Benton for the statue of a dog (Shep) and the most famous Wild West block north of Great Falls, visit the Charles Russell Museum to see the new exhibits, float the historic tour of the places Lewis and Clark saw, and endlessly fish or sunbathe. There are shrimp-fed edible pink fish at the dam, and someone is always giving us elk or venison to roast (which you can actually buy), yum! And the galleries and jewelry are fabulous, but you may even enjoy the gambling. The first time I read in the yard, three deer were curious and came closer to visit!
