Property description

This house is the perfect headquarters for a weekend adventure in the Seeley-Swan Valley!
Seeley Lake is minutes away and the house offers private access to public land. Holland Lake, the Bob Marshall Wilderness, and the Swan and Mission mountains are all a short drive away!

The Swan valley and Mission mountains are beautiful year round and full of wildlife. In the spring and summer you can hike, fish, boat, swim, and view wildlife and native plants. After a day outside relax on the porch, build a campfire or warm up by the woodstove.
The house is on a wooded acre bordering public land, 1 1/2 miles from the lake and local businesses. Large picture windows offer views of the woods and wildlife.
