About Chris Miller

I love all things outdoors, then enjoy hanging out with friends for good food and conversation. In Ovando, I can do it all, then watch the sun set over the vast and open valley, while enjoying the beverage of my choice.

Chris Miller purchased this farmhouse in 2011

Why Chris Miller chose Blackfoot Valley

Ovando is real Montana. Open, gorgeous and quiet. It is the place my wife and I go to just relax and not worry about things that need to get done. And now that it is finished, we thought, why not share this place with people from all over that may not get a chance to enjoy Montana for long or often. With multiple access points for world class fishing, endless backcountry room for hunting, skiing and hiking, multiple lakes nearby for all kinds of water activity, it justs seems like a place people will want to vacation in.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Space! Time, or a lack of watching it. Real. As in Montana as it was 50 years ago. The famous Trixie's Bar within walking distance. Extremely nice people, without the attitude found in more expensive towns. Endless bird and animal watching, at all times of year.

We have added a "Network Extender" to our house which has created excellent 3 G or better connectivity for your cell or pad.

Make your own unique day, and share it with us.

This is a place to get away from your daily life and take a step back in time. This past summer we had a larger group come in and many of them camped. We will continue to consider this option with permission. We go there to fish, bike and play, but also to slow down and let life come to us. This house reminds me of time at my grandparents house in rural Virginia, where we knew all the neighbors, waved as people drove by and did not have a long list of things we had to do. River shuttles just down the road. Call Leroy at 406 793 3717.

Fantastic property, huge plus it's dog friendly

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a quick get away that offered something remote, something private and the hard to find requirement, we wanted to bring our dogs. We found it in this place. Communications with the owner was fast. He answered questions, was information, and followed through. The property was perfect, and needless to say we had a great time. I would absolutely recommend this place.

The Farm House is a fantastic get away in the Blackfoot valley. House has everything you need, very well done and cozy. Love the porch, the sunset, the firepit, the bbq and the tunes,.ideal for an evening after a great day on the Blackfoot. Several access points within 15 minutes. Well be back, owner was extremely helpful.

Great stay, excellent house

  • 5 of 5

My husband, sister and two medium size dogs stayed in the Ovando house for a week to assist my other sister with a building project in Seeley Lake. The house was perfect for the three of us. It was especially good for dogs as there is a fenced yard and doggy door. All the floors are reclaimed wood or tile, so vacuuming was easy. Tastefully decorated with reclaimed wood adn great windows for a view. We had a great time.
