Call Matthew Hohnberger (406) 212-3600, or your real estate professional today! Welcome to unparalleled, natural beauty at the majestic Rocky Bar O Ranch. The ranch is surrounded almost entirely by State, Federal, and Park lands and feels much larger than its 2, 006+ deeded acres of wilderness paradise. The North Fork of the Flathead River forms most of the north and eastern property boundaries with over 2.6 miles of frontage, a common boundary with Glacier National Park. Coal Creek forms a portion of the southern boundary for half a mile at the bottom of a ravine. The land is a mixture of expansive meadows, old-growth forests, rolling ridge tops, and timbered mountainsides. All this is interspersed with crystal clear springs and creeks cascading down the mountainside or gently flowing through the ranch. There are many advantages to the numerous miles of river breakouts for fishing, wildlife observation, or a tranquil walk by the water. Secluded and off-grid, yet despite the seclusion, the ranch is accessed via a paved and gravel County Road. Log rail fencing, accompanied by multiple gates and ATV fence openings, allows easy movement through the ranch while keeping others out. No matter where you go on the ranch, you are constantly captivated by the breathtaking views of Glacier Park's Rocky Mountains, reaching 8, 000 to 10, 000 feet high, or the forested Whitefish Range. The views here never get old! The main ranch headquarters has various structures perfect for comfortable wilderness living or ranch operations. On the property, you'll find a primary log 2-bedroom, 1.5-bath, 2, 900 square foot home, two original homestead cabins (dating back to 1946 and before), three guest or ranch hand log cabins, a garage/shop, a spacious pole barn for equipment or hay storage and an additional barn for hay or horses. In a separate location on the ranch, there's a caretaker's 3-bedroom, 1-bath, 2, 520 square foot log home paired with a small cabin, workshop, and various outbuildings. Near the main river, situated on one of the river breakouts and a spring, resides a cozy 2-bedroom, 1-bath, 1, 020 square foot cabin with a garage and storage buildings. To own the Rocky Bar O Ranch is like possessing a piece of Glacier National Park itself! The North Fork Valley, home to this ranch, is known for its limited private land ownership and its vast variety of wildlife. Beyond the beauty of all the water, meadows, and scenery, the ranch is literally a sanctuary to an array of wildlife. Throughout the year, but especially from fall to springtime, the elk herds from the valley and Glacier National Park assemble here on the ranch and call it home. It is always a special moment when you find that antler shed in the grass or see a prize bull elk bugling. The ranch also consistently hosts moose, whitetail and mule deer, wolves, black and grizzly bears, mountain lion, beaver, otter, fox, coyote, lynx, snowshoe hare, flying squirrel, pine martin, and other mammals. Nearby on the half-mile-long pond complex or the seasonal wetlands, you will find ducks,
