The Salmon Prairie Ranch

$6,000,000 Bigfork, MT 297± Deeded Acres

Executive Summary

The Salmon Prairie Ranch is located in Western Montana’s Swan Valley in the middle of two of Montana’s most dramatic mountain ranges: the Swan Range and the Mission Mountains. This is the heart of the Crown of the Continent and many trailheads leading into the massive Bob Marshall Wilderness (1.5 million acres) are a stone’s throw away. The ranch itself has 3.2 miles of boundary with an ocean of Flathead National Forest and almost a mile of both sides of the Swan River. A comfortable three bedroom two bath log home is tucked into the trees on a hillside overlooking the meadow and across the river at the snowcapped Swan Range. Another cluster of improvements located in the meadow include a barn, guest cabin and more. A two bedroom two bath manager’s home with a detached garage provides the opportunity for an on-site manager to keep an eye on things. There are two wells and water rights for 54± acres of flood irrigation. A conservation easement encumbers approximately one-third of the acreage. Wildlife and trout abound here, and the views will put your jaw in your lap.
