Mill Creek Ranch is perfectly located in Montana’s dramatic and private Jack Creek drainage that links the resort communities of Big Sky, Moonlight and Yellowstone Club to the charming western town of Ennis and the Madison Valley.   The 2,636± acre Ranch offers a beautiful custom log home in an alpine setting and several additional building locations with stunning panoramic views of Lone Peak, Fan Mountain and the Spanish Peaks.  Accessed by a gated roadway, the Ranch offers excellent privacy and tranquility while being only minutes from world-class ski and golf resort experiences.   

The Ranch is located in a classic Rocky Mountain alpine setting, complete with snow-capped peaks, timbered slopes and mountain meadows that are filled with wild flowers throughout the summer.  Several streams traverse the Ranch including Mill Creek, a tributary of Jack Creek.  Jack Creek continues for several miles before its confluence with the famous Madison River just above Ennis Lake.  The Jack Creek drainage has been compared to a private Yellowstone Park and is home to most of the large mammal species in Montana.  This wildlife cornucopia includes deer, elk, moose, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, mountain lions, wolves, bobcats, bears and wolverines.  With over two miles of common boundary with the adjoining Lee Metcalf Wilderness, the Ranch features some of the finest mountain-wildlife habitat in the state as it provides critical wildlife migration routes to and from the adjacent wilderness, ensuring world-class elk hunting during archery and rifle seasons.

In addition to fishing Jack Creek, which is just a short walk from the porch, devoted anglers will appreciate that the Madison River is a comfortable 20 minute drive from the Ranch – within easy striking distance when one of the legendary hatches are coming off the River.  
The wildlife, hiking and recreation opportunities are further enhanced by the adjoining wilderness and millions of acres of nearby U.S. Forest, Wilderness and National Parks.  The wildlife habitat as well as recreational opportunities in all seasons is unparalleled.  Mill Creek Ranch is perfectly positioned for winter recreation; skiing enthusiasts have access to the ‘Biggest Skiing in America’ at Big Sky Ski and Summer Resort, located only 15 miles up the road through the private Jack Creek Roadway.  All of the wonders in Yellowstone National Park lie just over an hour south of the Ranch via the West Yellowstone entrance.  Ennis, Quake and Hebgen Lakes, where boating and fishing are both available, are just a short distance away.

Mill Creek Ranch is easily accessible year round and conveniently located about 10 miles east of the vibrant small town of Ennis.  Bozeman, the closest urban center, is a comfortable hour and a half drive from the Ranch and provides commercial and private airport services.  Buyers seeking solitude without isolation in an attractive Rocky Mountain setting close to high-end resort amenities will find Mill Creek Ranch to be the finest resort ranch on the market.
