Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: My husband and I have lived in this area for over 20 years. I moved here from Virginia and he is a Montana native. We both love to hike, fish, camp, hunt, ski, etc. We also like the laid-back lifestyle in Montana. It is the perfect place for dogs, and we have great neighbors. We love the beautiful mountain views, the river behind us and all of the natural surroundings that make Montana a great place.

Why the Owner Chose Livingston, MT, USA:
We built this cabin here because we live here and we love this area. The agricultural surroundings are very peaceful and full of wildlife and songbirds.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Aside from all the beautiful natural surroundings it is the people of this valley that make life enjoyable here. The Shields Valley is still a relatively undeveloped ranching and farming community. The small towns around us; Livingston, Clyde Park and Wilsall still have an authentic western look and feel. They host local events such as; rodeos, branding parties and dances with a real sense of tradition and community.
