This historic 1880's hand hewn log home is the combination of the original homestead house and a barn that were completely renovated by the family in 2002. While the logs & ranch ring with history the facility is first class.
Our third generation, operating ranch includes the North Fork of the Blackfoot River, two spring creeks and four ponds that hold native trout waiting to challenge fishermen. Guests have exclusive access to these waters and the ranch. The storied Blackfoot river is nearby and other rivers are an easy drive. The ranch is located between Montana's two major national parks and the Bob Marshal wilderness is north of the ranch. We are happy to share our bit of heaven as well as generations of stories! Many of our guests just enjoy the peace & quiet of the ranch & it's surroundings. Lots to enjoy besides the fishing!

My family purchased our ranch in 1949. It has been a love affair ever since. Many small ranches in this area have been purchased for summer trophy ranches. Instead, our family has restored the original homestead home into a vacation rental. We enjoy sharing the home as well as the ranch. Guests have exclusive use of the spring creeks, ponds, & access to the N. Fork of the Blackfoot that runs through the ranch. I am happy to tell guests the history of the valley & our 65 years of toil on the ranch.

Took a risk six years ago, my wife and I found it online and have been back every year since. Each visit, something really special and unexpected happens, which deepens our relationship to the place, our hosts who I now consider friends, and to each other. The house was built out of love and you can feel it when you walk in the door. Yes, there is great fishing, the scenery is literally breath taking, you can bike and float in the pond and wildlife abounds. But what keeps us coming back is being a part of working ranch, I've driven tractors, jumped on hay bales and rode on an ATV chasing errant livestock. All during cocktail hour. It is an amazing wealth of unstructured free time with as little or as much as you want to do. I write this with some inner conflict as I want John and Diane to have lots of guests but I want my week every year!
My son recently got married near Helmville and we rented the Krutar Ranch for myself, my husband, my niece her husband and their 3 month of son. It is beautiful and worked well for us as we prepared for the wedding. On Saturday the groom and his groomsmen came to get ready and we had a bbq for them on the back deck. They took some pictures outside on the property and near the pond-I am sure they will be awesome. The pictures on this site or good but the property is even more beautiful than captured in the pictures. I would highly recommend this property-the owners were amazing to work with.
Lots to do for everyone! My teenager went paddle boating on the ponds, my grade schooler rode a bike on the property and my spouse enjoyed the views, and the fantastic house. I went fishing--on the ponds, the spring fed creeks, and the Blackfoot River. Only about an hour from Missoula and Helena, you can always go into town if you want to, but we never felt like we should. The mountains are stunning, the stars uber bright, and seeing rainbows only added to the splendor. We cannot wait to go back to enjoy the house and our hosts!
Can not say enough good things about the Homestead. Great access to fishing on the blackfoot, north fork of the blackfoot, and multiple creeks on the property and nearby. The property is very close to the amazing wilderness complex where you can hike for months without ever hiking the same trail twice. The house is in a wonderful location with great views. The house is modern as far as the appliances and such, but still retains a nice ranch/cabin feel. I highly recommend a visit here.
Krutar Homestead is the BEST of all the vacation homes/properties at which we stayed in the last 5 years! The homestead is awesome- it's rustic yet modern makes it so relaxing and fun with its early 1900 details in fixtures and furnishings! The property-all 500 acres-and setting is BEAUTIFUL with so much to explore. Did I mention the peacefulness it provides-which is what vacation is suppose to be! Then there is fishing the spring creeks and we love our fly fishing! Sitting on the wrap around porch with sun rise and sunset was beyond words! We will go back...
This isn't just a vacation rental - it's an experience! What a fantastic property! Views in every direction. Excellent fishing and recreation and to top it off - a beautiful handcrafted masterpiece of a home! LOVED it! Would go back in a heart beat and will recommend it to others for sure! What a great place to unplug, get off the grid and do what you're supposed to do in Montana - enjoy the serenity and beauty! A+++++
Working ranch setting with spring creeks and ponds. Excellent hiking and biking and river fishing close by. Many western MT sites and recreational opportunities within easy driving range.
