General Description: A warm, comfortable, healthy GREEN home utilizing solar power but grid intertied with 270 degree vistas of mountain ranges, sitting above the trout-rich Madison River, in a ranch setting 40 miles from Yellowstone National Park (35 miles from Ennis) and with private access to 3 ½ miles of fishing on the Madison River.
The house has 4 bedrooms & 3 baths..
The kitchen contains top-of-the-line equipment including double Miele ovens with Magic Chef programming, a DCS gas cook-top, a silent Bosch dishwasher, a large refrigerator with freezer compartment, and a good size pantry. There is an outdoor Weber gas grill.
The house has a steam bath as well as a Jacuzzi bath.
The entertainment system includes a Blue Ray DVD player, a CD player, stereo speakers in several rooms, DISH large screen TV, and internet programming all operated by a single remote control. There is wireless internet access throughout the house with a broadband internet connection; fax machine/copier/scanner are provided.
The 3500 sq. ft. house was built during 2007-09 using renewable resources. It features thick adobe-style walls which, together with a highly insulated roof, keep the house at a constant comfortable temperature for a good part of the year. The house is designed to admit the winter sun and protect against the summer sun. Each room in the house features an interlocking, artistic interplay between wood and plaster. The plaster is a green product with a low carbon footprint (it absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere) and has high vapor exchange properties which tends to preclude water condensation. Straw bales are the insulation between the exterior and interior plaster.
There is a large outdoor porch sitting area with comfortable rocking chairs; a number of small sitting patios tucked strategically around the outside of the house with marvelous views; an outdoor picnic area; plenty of open space to enjoy; and complete privacy.
The house sits adjacent to an elk migration route (fall and spring) on land that may be considered part of the greater Yellowstone eco-system. The house is situated on a 2,000 acre ranch subdivision which has 1600 acres in conservation for recreation. The ranch resources include 3 ½ miles of riverfront on the Madison River, 2 trout ponds, a tributary of the Madison (Horse Creek), wildlife, and 12 plus miles of private roads for jogging and walking..
West Yellowstone is 40 miles; Ennis is 35 miles; and Bozeman is 90 miles. There are airports at West Yellowstone and Bozeman. The elevation of the house is 6000 ft.
Area activities include river & lake fishing, river floating (a boat launch just downriver from the house), hiking, sightseeing/ exploring, biking, horseback riding, camping, cross country skiing, and an enormous area of BLM Land & the Beaverhead National Forest abut the southern end of the ranch.
Smoking is not permitted inside the house. Pets are not allowed.

About the owner: Our family shares a love of the out-of-doors - fishing, boating, hiking, biking, camping, and wildlife viewing. There are resources on the ranch where our grandchildren can fish in small trout ponds while the adults wade the Madison. We love to boat the Madison which is basically a 50 mile riffle in our area. There is a launch site just downriver from us. Also, we love seeing the elk migrate in large numbers right through our yard in the Fall and Spring. In the winter we cross-country ski on trails at the ranch or in the park at W. Yellowstone and then downhill ski either at Big Sky or Grand Targhee. We also go on field trips to Yellowstone National Park which is a great outdoor learning lab for all of us. Cross-country skiing in the Park is a favorite winter activity while biking in the Park in the Spring to see the animals calving is also very special.
Why the Owner Chose Cameron, MT, USA:
We love southwestern Montana and the proximity of the property to Yellowstone National Park. We also enjoy having the resources of a 2000 acre ranch situated on the Madison River.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is extremely comfortable with all modern amenities but situated in part of the greater Yellowstone eco-system with wildlife viewing opportunities and lots of open space. The property offers private access to 3 1/2 miles of riverfront fishing on the Madison as well as on a tributary - Horse Creek - plus trout ponds.
