About the Property
The Rocky Mountain Front Retreat; 3 BRs 2 baths; 2 kitchens; Sleeps up to 11
Many outdoor activities are at your door step, such as hiking, photography, running or biking. Also, there are over 1,000 miles of wilderness trails close by in the Lewis and Clark National Forest and the Bob Marshall Wilderness. Plus, there are fishing, hunting and skiing opportunities in season.
There are very few places to stay located on the Rocky Mountain Front. It is sparsely populated with plenty of wildlife viewing, including: mule and white tail deer, elk, many varieties of birds, grizzly and black bears, chipmunks, rabbits and squirrels.
For those times you prefer to be cozy and stay indoors, the interior is comfortable and inviting, with quality furniture, and fully-equipped kitchen(s). The area is very quiet if you are looking for some writing or other creative time.
The Retreat has just been upgraded with high speed internet and two flat screen TVs for streaming from the internet, together with DVD players for watching movies.
High speed WiFi is available, as is a land line phone for local calls.
Introductory pricing from $120 to 220 per night (plus cleaning fee and taxes).

This majestic, scenic property is located on the historic Moore Homestead, founded in 1919. It overlooks the Saw Tooth Range of the Rocky Mountain Front. It is close to the trail head for Ear Mountain and has about 1,000 miles of trails in the close by Lewis and Clark National Forest and Bob Marshall Wilderness. It is truly a part of the 'last best place' on the Crown on of the Continent.
The homestead is located only a 1/2 mile from the Teton River, and is adjacent to the original A.B. Guthrie Jr place, the American Pulitzer Prize author of The Way West, and Big Sky, among other books. Guthrie noted that he returned to his place facing Ear Mountain after publishing these novels as it was his 'point of outlook on the universe.'
Also close by is the Old North Trail where, according to many, the original inhabitants of North America traversed in the safety of the shadow of the rocky mountains.
Egg Mountain one of the largest finds of dinosaur eggs is just down the Bellview Road. Remember Jurassic Park? The scientists were digging at Egg Mountain at the beginning of the movie.
Nature's Conservancy is conserving and protecting large areas of land in the area, including the Pine Butte Preserve, which is the only place where Grizzlies roam from the mountains to the great plains. They also work closely as part of the community on common interests, such as the awareness and management of noxious weeds identification and control.
Often the only sounds heard are created by nature. Watch the birds dip and dive among the ancient jack pines, feasting on the pine cone nuts. Little chipmunks and rabbits are amusing to watch as they run along and hide among the rocks close by. Deer often forage in the area, sometimes coming within feet of the windows in the Retreat.
The Rocky Mountain Front Retreat is located at close to 5000 feet above sea level on the edge of wilderness, yet close to amenities. A variety of interesting walks and hikes are nearby; something for nearly all age and ability levels. Choteau is 23 miles away and Great Falls is 75 miles away.
Glacier National Park is about 1 1/2 hours away and Missoula is just over 3 hours away.
Year Purchased: 1992
About the owner: We built on the 'old homestead' about 20 years ago, with a major addition and total renovations completed over the last year, to create the Rocky Mountain Front Retreat. Family members have been spending time there, in all seasons, for many decades.
Why the Owner Chose Choteau, MT, USA:
The property has been in the family for 5 generations; however, the Rocky Mountain Front Retreat is a modern and comfortable place in the 'last best place' on the Rocky Mountain Front which is part of the Crown of the Continent. We are now excited to share the experience with discerning travelers who are looking for something unique.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
There are very few places to stay located on the Rocky Mountain Front. It is sparsely populated with plenty of wildlife viewing, including mule and white tail deer, elk, many varieties of birds, black and grizzly bear, chipmunks, rabbits and squirrels. The Rocky Mountain Front Retreat is nestled between the Lewis and Clark National Forest and Bob Marshall Wilderness to the west and the Pine Butte Preserve and the Great Plains to the east.
