This is a legacy property - perhaps a once-in-a-lifetime ownership transfer in Western Montana. Grey Wolf Ranch has been owned by the same family for nearly 50 years, with very few owners since it was originally homesteaded. The magnificent property is nestled between the Mission Mountains and the Bob Marshall Wilderness, just a short distance from beautiful Placid Lake. Boasting more than 220 acres, and adjacent to thousands of acres of public land, Grey Wolf Ranch is also an astonishing 75 minutes from Montana's second largest city, Missoula, Montana.Grey Wolf Ranch is a Montana dream property - mountain views, two creeks, a spring-fed pond, meadows, lodge pole timber, sand hill cranes, moose, bear, beavers, bald eagles... Second only to the wildlife and views, the homes on this property range from historically significant to Montana iconic. The owner's cabin, constructed in 1928, has been lovingly cared for and drips with the history of the ranch. Views over the meadow and the mountains beyond are intentional, and the enormous dining table will remain to share the stories of prior generations. There are two additional guest cabins, as well as a charming A-frame, to accommodate ranch managers, paying guests, or friends and family. And the newest addition to the ranch constructed entirely of logs harvested on the property, some more than 40 feet in length, provides an additional, luxurious one-bedroom accommodation for family, friends or guests. But...the Belle of the Ball is the Main Lodge. Constructed of enormous, hand-scraped logs, and artisan masonry, the 2004 Lodge is the cornerstone of the ranch today. A chef's kitchen on the main level of the lodge offers every amenity needed for a private residence or small commercial operation. And in the lower level, a fully licensed commercial kitchen offers the option for the new owners to continue operating Grey Wolf Ranch as a destination for celebrations. There is a full-service liquor license available, upon inquiry, as well. The lodge includes a massive gathering space with a custom masonry fireplace, locally constructed bar, and charming loft. The main-floor "bridal suite" includes its own access to the outdoor decks, marble bath, and steam shower. In the lower level, in addition to the commercial kitchen, a two-bedroom living area, complete with a second fireplace and full-bath, offers options for a wide variety of uses. In addition to the homes, there are many amenities not to be overlooked: The events pavilion was recently completed and is located near the wedding pagoda, pond, and horseshoe arena. The shooting range includes an underground skeet thrower and shooting shed. The working sawmill has milled many of the logs on the ranch and might continue to do so. There is an 11,000-gallon propane tank, a diesel and gasoline tank for equipment refueling, and a back-up generator large enough to keep the operation in full swing in the event of a power outage. Grey Wolf Ranch is perfectly situated, and has been thoughtfully curated.
