Why Jeff Lee chose Hamilton

This is a one of a kind property. Totally remodeled with top quality material. Located on 5 min from town but feels like you are in a remote setting. The house sets just 40 ft from the Bitter Root River. You can launch right from the house. Great fishing or just float 45 min down to Anglers Roost where you can take out and be back home in 10 min. It has a family room upstairs and a huge entertainment room down stairs which included a world class billiard table. If you like snow skiing we are less than 1 hr from the slopes. Hamilton has every amenity. You are only 1 hr from Missoula and the airport. Wildlife is abundant. Deer and turkey roam on the property daily. In the fall elk wander through the yard. With over 2000 sq ft of deck and covered patio siting outside by the river is relaxing beyond words. You can see the river from almost every room and the mountains in the background bring it all together. You will not find another home like this one. I had been vacationing all over Montana for over 20 years then I found this spot. I have never seen another property located like this. It feel remote but its close to everything. The snow never stays to long and the access is never a problem. You can never build this close to the river. This is one of the few properties that are high and dry well out of the flood plane but you can launch your boat right form the house. Only 40 ft from the river gives you that fresh clean aroma with no dust. This just can't be replaced. If you want a vacation that will make your BUCKET LIST THIS IS IT!

What makes this house unique

The series Yellow Stone, staring Kevin Costner, filmed some of their shots from this site. In the first episode the herd of elk crossing the river were filmed from the back yard. The property is in close proximity to everything but it is nestled up against the Bitter Root River surround by nature. Wildlife is so abundant. Town only a few min away. It just doesn't get any better than this.

Wonderful time with grandkids.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I hosted our 6 grandkids - 8,9,11,12,13 and 20. The house could not have accommodated them better. The size and layout of the home allowed everyone ample space to be together, as well as find some down time. The float from the house down the river on supplied large river tubes was great. As was the fishing and horseback riding. Will certainly return next year.

Well stocked kitchen and very comfortable beds, etc.

Amazing home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fantastic! We traveled out to the Bitterroot for our wedding and used this house for the Bride's family. They had never been to Montana before and this was the perfect location. Beautiful Mountain view and right next to the Bitterroot river. Very quiet and private and only 10 or so minutes to downtown Hamilton. The space was amazing with a wonderful deck overlooking the river, perfect for morning coffee and book reading. The kitchen had all the utensils we needed to cook for our group. Animal sightings included deer, river otters, osprey, and wild turkey's. Thank you to the owners who were so welcoming and accommodating and even called just to make sure our stay met expectations. I recommend this as a place to experience the beauty of Montana and we would definitely stay here again.

Hamilton is the prefect Montana town. It has almost every amenity you will need. Numerous restaurants and groceries, movie theater, hardware stores, shops, car dealerships, weekend markets, abundance of outdoor activities. Snow Skiing less than 1 hour away. Missoula International Airport only 1 hour away. Bitterroot Mountain Range with snow capped peaks are the backdrop view as you look out upon the Bitterroot River. Outstanding trout fishing at your back door. Many local guides just a few minutes away. This is my favorite place in Montana !
