About the Property
Main cabin: 2/2. Private Guest cabin 1/1, Bunk house 2/1
March through November you'll see fly fishermen along the West Fork River and the many creeks that flow that flow into the river trying to coax five different species of trout
Summer nights are frequently in the mid 40's with days in the dry 70's at this elevation of 4,800. The road is well kept in winter, allowing easy driving access to Lost Trail Ski Resort on the MT/ID border where you'll discover great skiing and snowboarding. It's locally owned, so come prepared with equipment or stop in Hamilton and get stocked up at Bob Ward's Outdoor store that carries everything for the year round avid outdoors sports person.
Our favorite activities are fly fishing the West Fork River and Overwich Creek, hiking, and riding ATV's. There is nearly 3,000 miles of Forest Service trails plus the 101mi Magruder Road Corridor which separates the 1.1mm acre Bitterroot-Selway Wilderness from the 2.3mm acre Frank Church River - River of No Return Wilderness.
Or, simply enjoy the front porch swing and read a good book. Afternoon naps are wonderful, especially with the refreshing mountain air, snuggled under a wonderful down comforter. There's also plenty of sightseeing to do from Glacier National Park to historic battle sights, and Hamilton's famous Farmers Market on Saturday mornings.

Amazing fly fishing on the West Fork of the Bitterroot River; great cut throat, rainbows, cut bows and brown trout all around in the creeks and rivers. Guide trips available from numerous professionals. Gym, gas, hunting supplies in Darby; grocery stores, salon/tanning beds, shopping, golf in Hamilton. Swimming and water activities in Painted Rocks Lake near cabin and Lake Como in Hamilton.
The Bitterroot Chamber:
has a very good video that gives you an idea of what there is to see and do in the area
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: I have been exploring Montana, Colorado and Idaho since 1966. When we found the Bitterroot Valley, we fell in love with the land and the people of Ravalli County. Home is Florida for us, but our hearts are in the Bitterroot Valley.
Why the Owner Chose Darby, MT, USA:
The West Fork area is full of treasures just waiting to be discovered. There are over 3,000 miles of trails to ride, and we haven't even discovered the winter activities yet! All the locals tell us how great the local ski slopes at Lost Trail are for snowboarding and downhill skiing. Plus, there are thousands of miles to ride snowmobiles that await our exploration this winter.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
I love exploring the high mountain lakes, trails, and creeks that surround the West Fork area. Sleeping is so refreshing with the fresh mountain air under the down comforters and memory foam topped beds, so I love taking naps at 4,800 altitude.
