Situated on the banks of the mighty Flathead River sits Flathead River Ranch - 210±

deeded acres of farm ground, pasture, and irrigated hay meadows. In this pastoral

setting in the Flathead Valley, the ranch is surrounded by multiple mountain

ranges and large farms, while the communities of Kalispell, Bigfork, Whitefish,

and Glacier National Park are located only a few minutes’ drive. The ranch is

perfectly positioned to take advantage of all the aspects of a Montana lifestyle.

With a private boat ramp and access to the Flathead River, access to Flathead Lake

is an easy nine-mile boat ride. The ranch also provides private access to springfed

Egan Slough on the west boundary, which provides recreational sport fishing

for bass, perch, and pike as well as exceptional waterfowl viewing and hunting

opportunities. Additionally, the ranch has a regulation skeet and trap range and

an observation tower for wildlife viewing and further hunting opportunities. The

signature feature of the ranch is the Flathead River which meanders in front of

the property to the south. Here, the river is over 200 feet wide and over 60 feet

deep with views across the river of the rich riparian forests, much of which is

in conservation easement. There is also a river-side recreation and campground

area offering friends and family power for travel trailers. The comfortable

improvements on the ranch consist of a 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath, 5,000 square-foot

main ranch home, beautifully remodeled in 2009, and a cozy 3-bedroom, 2-bath

guest home. A spacious heated and insulated main shop, several outbuildings,

equipment sheds, storage areas, corrals and a historic grain elevator make up

the remainder of the headquarters’ improvements. The setting behind the main

home and guest home is a manicured landscape along the banks of a spring-fed

creek offering an environment of tranquility and peace. Opportunities to enjoy

the ranch are varied with a unique combination of recreational, ranching, and

farming components. Flathead River Ranch, in this very special Montana location,

will provide much enjoyment to the next fortunate owner.
