The Highwood Mountains in Central Montana located in the Lewis and Clark National Forest are home to some of the best Elk, Pheasant, and Mule Deer hunting in the state. One could enjoy the blue ribbon fishing for Rainbow and Cutthroat Trout on the Highwood Creek, or try hiking and horseback riding from one of the many nearby trails. All of this is just minutes away from the Highwood Creek Retreat. Land Nestled at the foothills of Highwood Mountains is this 9.7 acre retreat encompassing river frontage, mountain views, wildlife, and privacy. This custom log home features 3,348 Sq/Ft with three bedrooms, three bathrooms, large master suite on second level over looking Baldy Mountain.
The main level features the kitchen with all high end appliances, a cozy office space, dining area, bathroom, laundry room, and living room. Hardwood floors throughout the home help accent the oversized logs. The lofted second level is where the master suite is located. The master bathroom includes a double sink, jacuzzi tub, and shower. From the master suite the views out to Highwood Creek and the Highwood Mountains beyond are nothing less than spectacular.
The lower level features two bedrooms, one bathroom, wet bar, living area, storage, and includes a walk out to the downstairs patio and lower lawn.
Imagine yourself sitting on the wrap-around deck in the evening listening to Sandhill Cranes calling, birds chirping, pheasants cackling, and the water running from Highwood Creek, or watching the whitetail deer coming down out of the hills for a drink of water. Occasionally a moose or black bear will visit the property.

Water/Mineral Rights & Natural Resources The retreat features water rights for livestock direct from Highwood Creek that date back to 1940. The well is a shared well with the neighboring property which is also for sale and could be bought with this place for added guest space.
Region & Climate Only a 15 minute drive a way is Highwood an unincorporated town with only around 200 people. The bar/cafe in town is famous around the area for its Friday night steak dinners. The community took its name from the nearby Highwood Creek that is a tributary of the Missouri River and Big Sag creek. The valley was popularized in the 1962 movie Shoot Out at Big Sag starring Walter Brennan.
The Highwood Creek Retreat is only a 40 minutes drive to Great Falls where you will find exceptional shops, restaurants, and entertainment. The Great Falls International Airport makes it easy for you and your guest to fly in for long periods of stay or for just the quick weekend trips. It's a great midway spot between Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park-not to mention all the world -class fly fishing rivers and streams, state parks, wilderness areas, and campgrounds in between.
The Highwood Creek Retreat is a must see if you are looking for a quiet relaxing property away from the busy city life. Call or email for a personal tour.
