Property Description

The Shields River Reserve is a premiere Montana lifestyle property with its harmonious blend of nature, pristine river frontage and exquisite amenities located in one of the most authentic rural and ranching valleys in south central Montana. The distance to the Reserve from Bozeman Montana is about the same distance to the Big Sky resort area, without the traffic, tour buses and strip malls. The route to the Shields River Reserve will take you back in time as you wind through the authentic Shield’s Valley where farms, ranches and rural towns that date back to the late 1800s are scattered amongst the expansive landscape. These wonderful towns still represent the lives of cowboys, cowgirls, cattle brandings, rodeos, western days and parades.

This world- class property is suited for qualified buyers seeking a Montana retreat with easy year around access, a wonderful outdoor setting with plentiful wildlife, beauty, tranquility, fly fishing, hiking, equestrian activities, and expansive mountain views. The exquisite yet unpretentious improvements at the Shields River Reserve have been carefully blended into the natural landscape.

Graced with approximately a mile of the pristine trout waters of the Shields River you will also enjoy a varied topography with a park-like setting that supports an abundance of wildlife, lush pasture, native grassland, a beautiful bluff with rock outcroppings, and vistas of the Absaroka, Bridger, Bangtail and Crazy Mountain ranges.

The reserve includes 245 +/- acres where adjoining parcels have been stitched together to prevent development along this valuable recreational corridor. Consistent with the architectural history of the Shields Valley the main home and spacious guesthouse were each designed by celebrated architect Larry Pearson, and built with meticulous craftsmanship with recycled aged timbers and indigenous rock by the revered builder Yellowstone Traditions. The owners have held true to their vision of living within their limits on the land by creating a “true sense of  place” without asserting a massive presence over it.

The Shields River Reserve is located just one mile north of  Clyde Park and 8 miles south of Wilsall, Montana.  The storied western town of Livingston is about 20 miles, and vibrant Bozeman is approximately 47 miles away.

Convenient commercial and private air travel is available via the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport & The Jet Center ( or nearby Mission Field a municipal airport for private pilots and smaller planes. The Wilsall airport is primarily used for farm/ranching industries.

Additional adjoining acreage of 73.97 +/- acres may be purchased separately.
