About the Property

2 Homes, 11 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 9 Baths, (Sleep 25 in both homes)

"The Bitterroot" is one of North America's most pristine alpine valleys, and Piquett Creek Ranch is among the area's finest destination locations for relaxing, discovering and enjoying the incredible wilderness, rivers, mountains and wildlife of southwestern Montana.

In the heart of the majestic Bitterroot Mountains just south of Darby, Montana, you'll find the Piquett Creek Ranch.This beautiful, family-owned 400-acre property is located on the banks of the West Fork of the Bitterroot River, surrounded by the Bitterroot National Forest and the magnificent Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness.

There is never a need to leave the property which includes: golf, tennis, world-class fishing, hunting, mountain biking, hiking, backpacking and more. Both houses are fully stocked. Perfect location for a guys fly fishing and/or hunting excursion, families vacations, weddings, snowmobile base camp or corporate retreats. Riding instruction on the ranch can be arranged. Guided fishing trips down on the Bitterroot River are also easily arranged. Best of all, the scenery and quiet allows one to escape and be completely "un-plugged". Town, Darby, is 15 minutes away.

Here's the real Montana. The kind of place you won't have to look hard to spot or even catch some of the abundant wildlife. Piquett Creek, with its numerous beaver ponds, criss-crosses the ranch pastures and meadows. Your kids will enjoy our stocked pond. And with a mile of Bitterroot River frontage to wander without even leaving the ranch, you're sure to find a spot to drop a line and land a trophy specimen for your next big fish story!

Aside from fishing the river and Piquett Creek, there is an acre+ stocked pond on the ranch. There is also a horseback riding insturction area at the barns. Becasue we are surrounded by national forest, there are plenty or roads and trails on which to ride. The tennis court is new; the golf course more for fun than for serious players. Perfect place for nountain biking on logging roads and mountain trails.

Year Purchased: 1961

About: We are John and Niki Talley. I am one of Frank Talley’s grandsons. Frank and his wife, Arline, purchased the property in 1961. I have spent most summers of my 45 year life on the Ranch. I am an avid fly fisherman and fly tier and was a Wisconsin DNR Angling Instructor for 2 years. I also am a 2 handicap on the golf course so if there is any instruction needed on our little course, or on the river, I am your guy. Niki has 6 years managing large multimillion dollar accounts in the outdoors industry. She has spent time in wilderness survival programs for youth teaching outdoor survival skills to troubled teens while obtaining skills herself. She is always willing to share (ask her to teach you the bow-drill fire starter while you’re here!) We both love backpacking, with many trips in the Tetons, Wind Rivers, Uintas, and of course in the Bitterroot Mountain ranges. In short we love the outdoors and are exited to share this great part of the country with you!

Why Darby, MT, USA:
With close to a mile of riverfront on the West Fork of the Bitterroot, and exclusive access to one if it’s largest tributaries, Piquett Creek, Piquett Creek Ranch is your flyfishing home base for river floats, fishing the high alpine lakes, wade fishing the river or spring creeks, or just honing your skills on our ponds with the kids. In addition to the world class flyfishing, enjoy backyard access to hiking, mountain biking, backpacking into alpine lakes and just about any other alpine mountain outdoor activity possible.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
2 separate homes to rent large(sleeps 18) and small(sleeps7) email for pricing structure. Sauna House, 6 hole Par 3 Golf Course, walk in access to a mile of the West Fork of the Bitterroot River, 3 Private Ponds, Flyfishing/flytying, and Golf instruction available.
