  • 60 acres
  • Power line is run in to cabin site
  • Nearly 2000 feet border National Forest Land on the east property line
  • Mostly wooded – pine, fir
  • Recently selectively logged to enhance healthy forestation
  • Not fenced but boundary lines & corners are clearly marked
  • Amazing, up close views of the Big Snowy Mountain Range
  • Located at the end of the road
  • Easy access on a deeded easement
  • Abundant deer, elk, black bear and other wildlife
  • I have built a small, 2 story cabin in the woods with outdoor balcony, indoor loft & a “lean to” roof on the side for outdoor enjoyment out of the rain. Is “shelled in” with windows, doors & roofing installed. Is a great opportunity for a new owner to finish the cabin as they desire.
  • There is another excellent cabin site close to this one with breathtaking views
  • All extra lumber on site will stay
  • Asking $260,000.00

    Do we have any info on why they are selling it? What about restrictions?

    Hi Denise, we are selling for several reasons but the main one is my health. The property sits at 6030 feet above sea level. I have asthma which is aggrivated at higher altitudes. I find exerting to work on the cabin extremely & increasingly difficult. I need to find a place at a lower elevation. There are no restrictions that I am aware of regarding building, keeping animals, etc. There is no well on this property but the neighboring parcel has one that is 235′ deep with lots of pressure & very good water. Thanks for asking, Jim

    Also, about half of the lumber I used to build the cabin is reclaimed which is something I’ve always wanted to do. I am a homebuilder by trade so you can be sure this tiny cabin is well built. Sq ftg: ground level 12’x12′ = 144, upper level 14’x16′ = 224, loft 7’x16′ = 112, balcony 4’x16′ = 64, under shed roof 11’x14′ = 154. Thanks again, Jim

    Love the look of it. Any lakes/water in the area?

      Luis, There are some local streams nearby like Timber Creek, Swimming Woman Creek & Neil Creek but they are mostly seasonal with spring & early summer run off. There is a pond that is stocked by Fish & Game about 10 miles down the road. Deadman’s Reservoir is about 35 miles south & is a great place for camping, boating, skiing & fishing. Also, there are several other reservoirs with in 75 miles. In Montana that’s just a short drive. This property is located smack dab in the middle of the state, south of Lewistown about 25 miles as the crow flies. Jim

    Seriously – particle board?

  • Avatar Jim Dawson

    No, not particle board, Nick. It’s OSB (oriented strand board) which is widely used in the construction industry for exterior wall, roof & floor sheathing. It is rated for exterior use & achieves excellent shear strength. It does not delaminate like plywood does and makes for faster & stronger construction than individual boards. It is also recognized as a “green” building product.
