Horse Property Description

Amazing Irene Snowy Mountain Ranch Tucked away in the southern foothills of the Big Snowy Mountains is this amazing working ranch with lush meadows, hay bottoms and rolling hills. It is comprised of roughly 7,871 deeded acres, 640 acres in state lease and a 41-head cow/calf forest-service grazing permit in nearby Swimming Woman Canyon. About 40 miles of new fencing has been recently installed, providing 14 medium-to-large pastures allowing good rotation and grazing for cattle. Water is abundant with year-round springs, reservoirs, ponds, wells, windmills and the presence of Swimming Woman and Currant creeks. There are excellent irrigation rights for approximately 100 acres of improved pasture/hay land. Elk, bear, mountain lion, whitetail deer, mule deer, antelope and upland game birds are plentiful on this tract. It is said the largest trophy elk in Montana exist in the Snowy Mountains. Swimming Woman Creek also offers excellent fishing, as do three of the ranch’s six ponds. Improvements The newer cedar-sided home has a cedar shake roof, approximately 3,000 square feet, open living room, three fireplaces, dining room, kitchen, large master suite, two full baths, a powder room, office, family room, large mudroom, laundry area, sewing room, wraparound decks and a stone patio overlooking Swimming Woman Creek. A new horse barn has a tack room, wash stall, feed room and stalls. It is cedar-sided with cedar shake roof to complement the main house. A set of working corrals with new handling equipment is located on the upper ranch, adjacent to a road allowing convenient shipping and receiving of cattle. Historic Features The old homesteader town of Irene, now restored, resides along a creek adjacent to ranch headquarters. The town was part of both the Nez Pierce Trail and the Carroll Trail, thus many Native Americans traveled through the ranch. One can still find teepee rings and other Indian artifacts on the parcel. The lower ranch contains the old homestead town of Rothiemay with a single-room schoolhouse and the Rothiemay Dance Hall, which is well-known locally. Location All this is set among large working ranches owned by third- and fourth-generation ranchers. The Lewis & Clark National Forest is within walking distance of the property’s northern border. It is located just 25 miles north of Ryegate, 25 miles east of Judith Gap, 50 miles south of Lewistown and 90 miles northwest of Billings International Airport.
