Property description

ON GOLDEN POND is the perfect vacation home for a group of 10 or less.Since the property is a wildlife refuge, this home isn't used as the venue for other activities, such as reunions, weddings, etc.
On Golden Pond is located in the Bitterroot Valley in Montana with close views of the Bitterroot and Sapphire mountains. You can walk out any of the bedrooms or the den and watch waterfowl on the pond and deer sleeping on the grass.
Whitetail deer, fox, coyote, California quail, ducks, geese, pheasants, turtles and bull frogs are some of the wildlife that call this property their home. That is why we limit the amount of guests. You can see wildlife in action when the environment is calm!

Year Purchased: 2000

About: I always use VRBO when I travel so it was easy to place this home with them. I retired from a 32 year career in 2006. My goal was to start a lavender farm on the property and that is what I am doing!

Why Hamilton, MT, USA:
My family is from Montana and we love it here!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
beautiful mountain setting; 33 acres of wildlife habitat; 2 trout ponds
