Productive Ranch with Riverfront Setting
Flathead County


  • Kalispell, Montana

  • 210 Deeded

  • $5,850,000

Situated on the banks of the mighty Flathead River sits Flathead River Ranch – 210± deeded acres of farm ground, pasture, and irrigated hay meadows. In this pastoral setting in the Flathead Valley, the ranch is surrounded by multiple mountain ranges and large farms, while the communities of Kalispell, Bigfork, Whitefish, and Glacier National Park are located only a few minutes’ drive. The ranch is perfectly positioned to take advantage of all the aspects of a Montana lifestyle. With a private boat ramp and access to the Flathead River, access to Flathead Lake is an easy nine-mile boat ride. The ranch also provides private access to spring-fed Egan Slough on the west boundary, which provides recreational sport fishing for bass, perch, and pike as well as exceptional waterfowl viewing and hunting opportunities. Additionally, the ranch has a regulation skeet and trap range and an observation tower for wildlife viewing and further hunting opportunities. The signature feature of the ranch is the Flathead River which meanders in front of the property to the south. Here, the river is over 200 feet wide and over 60 feet deep with views across the river of the rich riparian forests, much of which is in a conservation easement.  There is also a river-side recreation and campground area offering friends and family power for travel trailers. The comfortable improvements on the ranch consist of a 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath, 5,000-square-foot main ranch home, beautifully remodeled in 2009, and a cozy 3-bedroom, 2-bath guest home. A spacious heated and insulated main shop, several outbuildings, equipment sheds, storage areas, corrals, and a historic grain elevator make up the remainder of the headquarters’ improvements. The setting behind the main home and guest home is a manicured landscape along the banks of a spring-fed creek offering an environment of tranquility and peace. Opportunities to enjoy the ranch are varied with a unique combination of recreational, ranching, and farming components. Flathead River Ranch, in this very special Montana location, will provide much enjoyment to the next fortunate owner.
