Property description

Set within a short distance to Yellowstone Park, 3 major world class ski resorts and blue ribbon fishing rivers, this home offers amenities you won't find anywhere else. The classic vernacular farmhouse is set against a backdrop of open fields and willows and water - home to abundant birdlife including Sandhill Cranes, Blue Herons, Bobolink, Canada Geese, ducks, pheasants, song and marsh birds. Rarely can you experience a private pond out the front door and unobstructed views of the many surrounding mountain ranges as well as close proximity to a desirable destination town.

This property has it all and will provide you with an experience of a lifetime.

Imagine yourself casting a line into the trout filled pond or sharing a beach fire under the moon's glow, sitting out back watching the sunrise or out front - the sunset over the mountains or enjoying the livestock in the front or side pastures. Cuddle up next to the warmth of the fire in the Tulikivi stove or cook up a delightful meal on the Wolf. Pick fresh vegetables from the kitchen garden. Gather the free range chicken eggs. Pack your cameras, your paints, your imagination and head to Montana. Learn what it's like to live in a place of such beauty. Learn from the wildlife still nesting and growing among willows and reeds. Walk the wetlands. Smell the fresh ions sweeping off the mountain tops. The Cottonwoods is the place for you to recharge and unwind - find yourself in a vibrant place. Rediscover imagination.
The home features wood and stone accents including a wood burning soapstone fireplace, a gas fireplace, gourmet kitchen, a large master suite with a jetted tub overlooking the pond view, two other bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate additional guests. Enjoy a cozy media room as well as ample dining area for the welcome meals after a full day of skiing or hiking or site seeing. The full wrap around covered porch provides another opportunity to enjoy each vista. A private sandy beach is the perfect spot to visit or play. Soak in the hot tub facing the Bridger Range.
The 1950's barn doubles as the summer studio for painting, drawing or just a great place to hang out on a hot afternoon with Rex the horse, the seven chickens, Tee and Thee the Turkeys and the five soon to be eight Dexter cows. We are, with help from our borrowed angus bull, Biggee who stayed with us this last fall, starting a breed just for the climate and conditions here in the valley. They will be strong sturdy good mothered cows that can bear incredible offspring and keep them safe within the confines of our small farm. I hope they are all at least a couple girls then will use future boys to support us later as local grass fed beef. They only eat what we raise here at the farm - organically grown clover and native grasses. The hand picking weeds will continue on the south plot. Fencing continues. Painting the landscape begins….
Walk or jog or bicycle on the paths that cover the 40 acres which includes the two ponds and a waterway through the land. Hide in the ancient trees and discover the 'Secret Place' all on your own. Even a true Montana dump hides history buried here over years of farming. This treasure of a property is almost too close now to the town it helped create. Come here and remember how America was started. Farming life - especially organically - is unique to all others. If you have eyes to see open them here.
If you are lucky you will see the eagles soaring, the cranes nesting and the swans flying right above the house. If you wish, sleep in the teepee under the ancient Cottonwoods by the south pond - even an abandoned buggy rests there. This Spring we are trying to attract swans to naturally live here where they were indigenously. Words can't express how beautiful the sun rises in this valley. It will change you to stay here. Smell the clover fields burgeoning in summer.
... Taste some honey...
