The Bold Fisherman Ranch provides the ultimate escape yet perfect place for discovery. The house sits amidst 75 acres on the Gallatin River in the center of some of the world’s best fly fishing rivers with easy access to the Gallatin Highway as well as privacy and quiet for the ideal Montana retreat. Just 12 miles/20 minutes south of Bozeman, it's also 20 minutes from Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (BZN) with readily available rental cars and shuttles to the property.

Owner/Property Manager

This advertiser has been with HomeAway.com since 2012

This property has been owned by our family as a retreat for 23 years. Originally Chicagoans, we now live on both coasts. The second generation of our family now owns the ranch and is offering it as a vacation rental for the first time. The caretakers have lived on the property for 12 years and are available for guide services in the area, as well as any other needs.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 1990

The Bold Fisherman Ranch was originally bought as a fly fishing retreat, but it quickly became a family gathering place given the beauty and serenity of the property. When you can pull yourself away, the ranch is in close proximity to the area's wonders, including the Gallatin River, the Spanish Peaks, Big Sky, Bridger and Yellowstone National Park. Twenty minutes from Bozeman, it offers a perfect combination of easy access to shopping and amenities with privacy and the feeling of a rural retreat. The trout pond and river access make it a rare property for both fly fishing afficianados and lovers of Montana beauty.

Traveling down the drive from Gallatin Highway, one enters the ranch and quiet and beauty descend. The views from the house include the fishing pond, an 85+ year old barn, expansive meadows bordered by the Gallatin River, and the Spanish Peaks in the background. Wildlife abounds, and the sky changes constantly: as beautiful on clear days as when clouds roll across the sky. We frequently see deer, fox, bald eagles, herons, ducks, sandhill cranes and more from the house. We never tire of the views and the sound of the river flowing through the bottom of the meadow, whether gathering by the stone fireplace in winter, or hanging out on the expansive deck in summer.

Great house, magnificent property, an ideal place for the fisherman almost anytime, and skiers in winter. House is immacuately clean, exceptionally well maintained and is furnished with just about anything you can name, particularily in the kitchen. The view from the dining area and living room is fabulous.
The owner is wonderful and the caretaker very responsive if there's problems or questions
One tip: finding the driveway can be a bit tricky the first time, be sure to get the great directions from the onwer or caretaker!!

This was a lovely place for 8 of us--6 adults and two teens--to spend the holiday week. The house is spacious, light, and beautifully 'decorated' with art and artifacts collected and produced locally. (Doesn't feel like a stripped-down rental.) Great kitchen stocked with full array of cookware and staples! Very accommodating place and caretaker. We skied, shopped and toured to Yellowstone, all from this base camp. Can't wait to do it again!

Family holiday vacation

This is a terrific setting for a multiple family vacation. The house is great--plenty of shared space plus places to escape for a little privacy and quiet time. We especially loved catching up at the end of the day in front of the fireplace in the living room. This is a perfect location for groups with multiple interests, with cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, coffee shops, and shopping all close by. The caretaker is also wonderful.

We'll be back!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and that the skiing was great. We would love to host you again in the future.
