Sited on the western slope of the famed Madison Range, the Bar K Ranch lies in a historic ranching area first settled in the late 1800s during the Virginia City gold rush. Surrounded by the State of Montana Game Range and private lands that are encumbered by conservation easements, the ranch is in an area with limited future development, ensuring privacy for generations to come. With four pivots to raise winter forage, a sustainable year-round cattle operation is assured. One of the historic aspects of the property is the homestead compound. The home is one of the oldest in the Madison Valley, and it has had many uses over the yearsfrom a stagecoach stop to a store/post office and currently as a ranch house. The famous fishing destination of Ennis is about 15 minutes north. Bozeman, a regional hub for southwest Montana with an international airport, is about an hour and 15 minutes from the ranch. A jet-capable airport complete with a fixed base operation is within 15 minutes. The Madison River, the primary draw to this area, is within 15 minutes of the ranch compound. Additional angling opportunities on the nearby Yellowstone, Beaverhead, Ruby, Big Hole, and Jefferson Rivers are all easy day trips. The half-million acres of the Beaverhead National Forest, which encompasses the Lee Metcalf Wilderness Area, begins within ten minutes of the ranch. Antelope, deer, and elk all inhabit the ranch at various times of the year.
