Located along the banks of one of Montana’s greatest blue-ribbon trout fishing rivers in the aptly named Paradise Valley, the Yellowstone River Ranch is conveniently placed between the charming western town of Livingston and Yellowstone National Park. The ranch consists of 269 +/- acres with for over a mile of Yellowstone River, irrigated pasture, easy year-round access, room to roam and dramatic “big sky” views. Paradise Valley is prized for its dramatic beauty and is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. The mighty Yellowstone River flows through the valley providing some of the finest fly fishing in the world as well as an inviting playground for kayakers and rafters. Fishing Ranch – Yellowstone River.
The Yellowstone River forms the eastern and southern boundary of the ranch for 1.2 +/- miles providing excellent fishing access protected in perpetuity in a conservation easement with The Montana Land Reliance. The river bottom is lined with cottonwood and indigenous evergreen trees providing a robust habitat for white tail, mule deer, Eagles and waterfowl that migrate up and down the river.
Built in the 1970’s, the main house and guest house are authentic to their origin.
The conservation easement allows for the main house with its striking river and valley views to be rebuilt in the same general location or may be remodeled and expanded to include up to 7,500 SF. Additionally, the main house may be used for non-retail business which is not open to the general public on a regular basis.
The guest apartment located above the barn may be used as a commercial guest rental unit and may be remodeled or replaced with a new structure of the same size and location.
Additional improvements on the ranch include a heated 7,000 SF indoor riding arena with metal siding and metal roof, turn out sheds for livestock and a gazebo.
The Yellowstone River Ranch provides a timely and excellent investment opportunity in one of Montana’s most beautiful valleys and will provide years of enjoyment for the new owner whether it be on a full or part-time basis.
Prior to current ownership the property was referred to as the “Daum Ranch”. Al Feldstein and his wife Michelle purchased the ranch in 1992 naming it “Deer Haven Ranch”. The ranch was placed in a conservation easement in 1992 to protect its natural beauty and vast natural resources. Al operated his art studio out of the main house for many years and Michelle rescued animals allowing them to graze on the land and live out the rest of their lives in a humane environment. Michelle has continued this practice since Al’s passing, although she has downsized her animal rescue operation over the past year to prepare for the sale of the ranch. The marketing name of the property is “The Yellowstone River Ranch” due to its amazing river frontage and fishing resources.
