ONE OF MONTANA'S FINEST PROPERTIES:

http://travel.nationalgeographic.com/travel/best-trips-2013/#/upper-missouri-river-breaks-national-monument_62528_600x450.jpg

Cabin on 365 acres, PLUS contiguous additional 6000 BLM acres, walking distance to 3 rivers, 'Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument', & official Lewis & Clark historical site. And, 10 min from Fort Benton, official MT birthplace.

DIRECTIONS: Great access. Cabin is 50 Mins From Great Falls Int. Airport. Paved road + 1/2 mile excellent county dirt road.

LODGING: 2 queen sized beds, living room sofa, & cot. Additional cots/beds as requested.

FOOD: Oven, Microwave, Mini-fridge, Grill at cabin. Ma's Cafe only 1.5 mi's away - great food! World-class Grand Union restaurant in Fort Benton.

GAME: Cool Storage available upon request.

HEAT: Comfortable propane-driven fire place & hotwater heater.

POWER: OFF-GRID - reliable 3000 ampere gasoline generator (initial fill-up provided; nearest gas station: 1.5 mi fm cabin). Lights in every room. Comfortable.

COMMS: Verizon best for phone service & internet (w aircard). TracFone excellent.

Authentic Montana Experience: Most people think of Montana as snow-capped peaks and blue-ribbon trout streams. Yet most of Montana is a combination of smaller yet equally rugged mountains, prairie & badlands, & warmer rivers - with trophy fish & game.

This cabin, home to pheasant, hawks, eagles, several species of fish, mule and whitetail deer, & the occasional moose, elk, & grizzly which follow the Teton River down from the Bob Marshall, is the best symbol of this other, larger Montana. And the people in the area are down-to-earth, hard working, helpful and friendly. This is where Lewis & Clark camped, confused which river was the mighty Missouri - there are 3 rivers. The Teton River, made famous through the writings of A.B. Guthrie, a Pulitzer Prize winner, runs for a mile through the property. And two other rivers, including the mighty Missouri, are within 2 miles of the cabin.

What To Do - If You Don't Hunt: Recommendations:

1) Fish 3 rivers in one day without setting foot in a car. Pull out a Sturgeon in the Teton River, a Walleye in the Marias River, & a Paddlefish out of the Missouri.

2) Hike or mountain bike to the top of the property. Watch 3 rivers run, simultaneously. The mtns to the east are the Bears Paw, home to 3 Indian tribes.

3) Bring/rent a canoe, raft, or motor boat. If it is early-to-mid summer, put in at the Teton River 100 yards from the cabin, float to the Marias 1/2 mile away, keep going to the Missouri, another 1.5 miles away. (Be sure to wear a life vest.) Drop anchor in each river. If it is late summer, start at the Marias.

4) Take a drive to Virgile Ferry. Cross the Missouri as the local ranchers and farmers have done for a century.

5) Have a meal at Ft. Benton's elegant Grand Union, arguably finest in the Northwest.

6) Take the binoculars and bird watch: pheasant, turkeys, pelicans, osprey, eagles, hawks, owls, and others that nest in the cliffs.

About John

Military veteran (former nuclear submarine officer commissioned out of U.S. Naval Academy, Annapolis, MD). Currently in energy sector with large E&P after obtaining my MBA at the London Business School in the UK. I own an operating cattle ranch near the Rocky Mountain Eastern Front and river-side property in Western Montana near Missoula. But the property at Fort Benton/Loma, MT is my favorite and is the perfect antidote, buttressed by 3 rivers and virgin countryside, for those who want a break from their demanding schedules. I hope you enjoy the property as much as I have and do.

Great countryside

  • 4 of 5
My boyfriend and I have visited Montana a few times, and this time we decided to explore the Fort Benton area.
You do not get to see such a beautiful landscape everyday. To me, the pics do not do any justice. The sunset was spectacular.
I love fishing, and this was the place!The cabin that we were staying at was big and relaxing. Right outside the cabin there is a river where you can enjoy fishing.
My dog loved the fact that it could take a bath every now and then. After a day of fishing, we went to Fort Benton to the old hotel, we had a beautiful dinner!! Very interesting place.
I do recommend this place, especially I wanna thank Pat and Scottie who made our staying very pleasant!

Notes:
1) This is an off-grid Montana cabin in some of the most beautiful, rugged country on earth. Please be mindful of the power that you are consuming. The generator will require a gasoline refill (extra gas located beside generator) after about 15 hours. Suggested practice: run generator from early evening to mid-morning, then secure via remote ON/Off switch. 2) The cabin is heated via a propane fireplace. Propane also heats water. 3) Please respect the land and surrounding community of ranchers, farmers, & craftsmen. Hunt & fish according to Montana regulations and with an sense of ethics. 4) Verizon is the best carrier for phone & internet (for internet you will need a Verizon USB aircar). A TracFone is also excellent for phone service and can be purchased relatively cheaply in Great Falls. Adequate AT&T mobile phone service & library with DSL internet in Fort Benton, 10 min away
