Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: My wife and I are lovers of the outdoors, and the natural world which surrounds us here. We love the access to so much phenomenal flywater and nature hikes in this peaceful setting. As professionals, we both need to stay connected to our businesses, and the hi-speed internet gives us the best of both worlds while recharging our batteries here in the mountains.

Why the Owner Chose Shining Mountains 1 (Ennis, MT, USA):
The sheer beauty of the place and the great opportunities for world class flyfishing are all around us. Real peaceful country setting. A light show plays upon the Madison range all day long with great sunset skies. Why not enjoy the great wide open with the best in comfort and space for the whole family.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We enjoy our morning walks down to the river or along the dirt roads with our labs; we enjoy access to private water and have at least 3 good restaurants in town for your dining pleasure. We're not on the river, but close to the madison and 5 other blue ribbon flyfishing rivers.
