Helena Lodge Rental Photos and Description
Lodge, 6 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 18)

Rugged back country makes up the majority of this vast working Montana mountain ranch. An ELK Hunters Paradise & Outdoor lover's Retreat, located by Avon in the beautiful Garnet Mountains, it is 42 miles west of Helena & Canyon Ferry, 15 miles east of Garrison & Drummond, & roughly 40 miles south of Lincoln.

With over 10,000 acres to play on - this is a true outdoor recreation delight for Big Game Hunters (rifle & bow) with huge ELK herds, Trophy Muley Deer, Black Bear, Wolf & occasional Moose; also for avid horseman (endless mountain trails), nature lovers (watch big game & other Wild-Life, fields of colorful wildflowers, mountains, trails) , fisherman (fly fishing in our stocked reservoir), 'big toy' enthusiasts (4-wheelers in the summer, snow mobiles in the winter, over logging roads in the back country), snow-shoeing & cross country skiers (unbelievable views & endless roads). Also a wonderful place for a sabbatical, family reunion, or group retreat....a peaceful, natural setting for guests 'to get away'.

Enjoy the warmth of the wood fireplace in the Great Room, viewing the Elk trophy mounts on surrounding walls. The poker table corner is sure to delight those who enjoy a good card game, reminiscent of the old Wild West gambling days! Or step across the hall to partake in a game of pool. The large kitchen is great for entertaining large groups, with an attached sunroom & sauna.

This older ranch home offers lots of room to spread out with the Great Room, pool room, kitchen & office all on the main floor, along with the King bed Master Suite with double hide-a-bed & its own shower & bathtub. On the lower level you will find the Queen bed suite with shower & tub; bunkbed room, King bedroom, 5 single twin beds with 2 bathrooms adjoining the bath & shower.

Looking out the dining, sunroom & office windows, down the road is the ranch manager's house, with the corrals, barns & farm buildings of this operation. Cattle may be present in the corrals, depending on the time of year. With Mountain views of Helena National Forest to the west & Garnet Mountains to the east, wildlife is everywhere - an occasional fox or elk may stray cross the backyard hill! Treat yourself to a rugged Montana Wilderness vacation with over 10,000 acres to explore & come in at night to the comforts of our huge ranch house! Our property is great for your back-to-nature retreat, family reunion, nature exploration, big game hunting, bow hunting or fly fishing expedition. Close to mining opportunities by Helena.

Close to Montana cities - Helena (Helena is Montana's capital, mining nearby, restaurants, historical tours), Garrison, (bars & restaurants), Canyon Ferry (boating), Deer Lodge (prison, hot springs, restaurants), Lincoln (hunting, restaurants, bars) - if you feel the need for civilization !

Little Valley Ranch is an awesome location nestled in the Garnet Mountains. It has a large rustic farm house that is part of a working ranch. You have access to miles of rugged mountains to explore. There is an abundance of opportunities for activities. We saw amazing numbers of elk, deer and antelope. Also enjoyed some awesome fishing and hiking. If you like the outdoors or just want to relax and take in the big sky country you will love this ranch.

The hosts were great! They even gave me a birthday party. Fishing was good. Saw lots of elk. The lodge was excellent and well stocked. Good fishing destinations nearby. The 4-wheeler trails were plentiful but a map of the trails would have been helpful. All in all a good place to stay. Would highley recommend it.
