Located an easy 30-minute drive on good gravel roads from Big Timber, the Morris Place Ranch is a quintessential private retreat located just below the southeast corner of the Crazy Mountains. Views near and far are incredible as the mountain vistas rise above treeline to over 10,000 feet. The property is encapsulated by two large operating ranches that have been in the same family ownership for generations. There are three drainages that pass through the ranch. The middle one is seasonal with a large perennial spring and the other two are live year around streams. These transitional mountain valleys are impressive, containing large patches of timber and a rich riparian corridor. The lands that tie these valleys together are open rolling grasslands. The building compound includes the three-bedroom owners home overlooking a beautiful trout pond, a two-bedroom guest cabin, a three-bedroom guest cabin, a caretakers apartment and a bunkhouse that contains 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, a tack room, and storage. These are all attractive reclaimed log, wood and stone buildings in a vernacular that makes them look like they have been there since homestead days, although all have been built since 1995. The headquarters setting is magnificent tucked into a protected valley but with big views overlooking a large trout pond. The ranch contains 1759 deeded acres and provides seasonal grazing for livestock, although the owners prefer to leave a lot of forage for wildlife. Hunting for trophy quality elk and mule deer is exceptional as the ranch lies in a protected area that has been a haven for wildlife for many years. This is primarily because the habitat is ideal for these species with good water and large blocks of timber interspersed with high quality forage. In summary, the Morris Place is an appropriately and comfortably improved, good sized private retreat within easy range of one of Montanas great small towns.
