This property sits on the banks of the Stillwater River located in the beautiful high prairie north of the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness Area in South Central Montana.
The Beartooth Mountain Range dominates the southern sky with over 25 peaks exceeding 12,000 feet including Granite Peak, the highest point in Montana.
The Stillwater River, one of Montana’s premier fly-fishing waters, runs through this property with frontage for one-half mile. This property is the dream of a lifetime for a fly-fishing enthusiast.
The property is near a nice small town at the base of the Rocky Mountains in South Central Montana. Convenient to fine dining, the arts and international airport facilities. It is very scenic with all of the outdoor activities Montana can offer including fly-fishing, hiking, wildlife photography, downhill and cross-country skiing, hunting, backcountry adventures, horseback riding and much more.
While the fly-fishing is fantastic, the Beartooth Mountain Views are outstanding. That is not all; the hunting is also great for resident mule deer and migrating elk.

The history of this region includes when the Crow Indian reservation was located in this lush mountain valley. In the late 1800’s the reservation relocated to the southeast and this land was opened for homesteading. Cattle ranching continues to be a staple of the rural economy. Many ranches remain with families of the original homesteaders.
Red Lodge, Montana is a scenic alpine town, with first class downhill skiing, fine dining, boutique shopping and is located just 30 miles south of Absarokee. The Home of Champions Rodeo is held in July, which is a fun time for the entire family. Nearby, Bearcreek Saloon has nightly “Pig Races” on summer weekends – bring your camera! Just a short drive from the property, Red Lodge is a great place to spend a few hours with friends or begin a day drive on the Beartooth Scenic Bi-way or Chief Joseph Pass.
Yellowstone Park is truly a wonder to behold from the amazing thermal features to tremendous wildlife viewing and beautiful scenery. The Beartooth Scenic Bi-way goes from Red Lodge to the park’s northeast entrance. The late Charles Kuralt of CBS described this scenic roadway as “one of the most beautiful drives in America”
Cody, Wyoming, 60 miles from Red Lodge, is a fun Cowboy Town that exudes everything western. Cody’s Buffalo Bill Historical Center is internationally recognized with five (5) museums and 300,000 square feet. The world-class museum assets grew from $5,000 in 1917 to over $50 million today. Yellowstone Park’s east entrance is just an hour from Cody.
Billings, Montana is “Montana’s Trailhead” where the plains meet the mountains. Just 65 miles from Absarokee, it is the state’s largest city. It offers an international airport, shopping, fine dining, theater and the arts along with the most advanced healthcare services in a four-state area. Billings is a regional hub of commerce for an area that spans in excess of 125,000 square miles and is home to Montana State University Billings, Rocky Mountain College and University of Mary. The city’s proximity is close enough for convenience, but far enough to not be a daily distraction.
