4th of July Seclusion

  • 5 of 5

Loved the property and the beautiful landscape setting. The house was clean and well furnished. Couldn't have asked for a more secluded and peaceful place to spend the 4th.

Great Fishing Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Seven fly fishing women from Bozeman spent 5 days at the Schindler Ranch the last week in June 2018. This was our third visit to the ranch and the best yet. The river was high and the water fast but we found many pockets holding fish and landed quite a few. The house is very spacious with plenty of beds for all of us. Though there are only two baths the seven of us managed without difficulty - the master bath has a separate shower and tub with two sinks and we never ran out of hot water. The kitchen is well stocked and we were able to prepare dinner and breakfast every day. The island offers a great work space and having two ovens helped greatly.

The setting in the Big Hole Valley is spectacular and very, very peaceful. We most likely will be back.

Little slice of heaven in Montana

  • 5 of 5

The Schindler Ranch home is so peaceful and serene, it was just what we needed for our vacation! Our family of four had a wonderful time there. The home is spacious, very clean and extremely comfortable with all of the modern amenities to keep our kiddos happy. We made precious memories there and took some amazing photos day after day! The views of the mountain ranges and the big sky sunsets were spectacular. Tammy was an amazing and thoughtful host, we will definitely be back!

Beautiful Big Hole Valley

  • 5 of 5

This is a peaceful home in beautiful surroundings. Three families gathered for the 4th of July here. We all had a great time. Plenty of room--clean and comfortable. We didn't catch any fish, but didn't spend a lot of time fishing. We went to Crystal Park to dig for crystals and found some nice specimens. Nearby restaurants were great, but the kitchen is well stocked with spices, condiments, etc. So cooking was easy. Everything that we needed was right there for us. Highly recommend this home!

The Best of the Best

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed in Montana for years and consider this wonderful rental the best we've ever rented. Of course with the Big Hole River literally in your backyard, the fishing is unmatched. But the views, the wildlife and the nearby town of Jackson offer a great slice of the true Montana. My husband and I hope to return here again.

Fishing Galore!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to go! We had trout for breakfast every day and it was wonderful. Although all of us did not fish, there were so many more things to do! I watched a doe and her fawn from the front window for quite some time. We saw antelope, elk, deer, and the views were to die for. One day we took a trip to the Lez Perce Indian battle ground and learned a lot about the tribe and its tribulations, I would definitely recommend this. On Saturday we drove into the little town of Jackson and had dinner at the Jackson Hot Springs restaurant/Bar. Although they have a Mexican Food restaurant too, we did not try it.
