About Jim Kephart

My family and I had the BAR N RANCH in West Yellowstone for decades. That was large, many guests, full service. SILVER STAR RANCH captures the beauty, privacy and ambiance of that place--and other traditional guest ranches--in a smaller size just right for couples and small families.

Jim Kephart purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Jim Kephart chose Silver Star

I had been searching for several years for a nice rural parcel. Several other deals came & went--and then I found this place. The views alone are worth it all---not just million dolar views but TEN MILLION DOLLAR at a great price!

What makes this cabin unique

You have a wonderful little cabin , LOTS of land (our 170 acres PLUS you are surrounded by endless federal BLM lands that offer great hiking and hunting), yet the hiwy is only 1/4 mile away and Twin Bridges (offering gourmet market & deli/espresso bar, 2 very good & 1 truly great restaurants, & more) is just 6 miles away.

LIKE FLY FISHING?? Well, world class fly fishing starts at Hell's Canyon at S. end of property, and continues all around us. Twin Bridges has numerous excellent fishing guides and TWO renowned fly rod mnufacturers.
