Avon Elk Hunting Summer/ Winter Recreation Lodge

Rugged back country makes up the majority of this vast working Montana mountain ranch. Avon Elk Hunting Summer/Winter Recreation Lodge is a 6 Bedroom, 5 Bathroom lodge that will sleep 14-16 comfortably! Located by Avon in the beautiful Garnet Mountains, it is 42 miles west of Helena & Canyon Ferry, 15 miles east of Garrison & Drummond, and roughly 40 miles south of Lincoln.

With over 12,000 acres to play on - this is a true outdoor recreation delight for Big Game Hunters (rifle & bow) with huge ELK herds, Trophy Muley Deer, Black Bear, Wolf & occasional Moose; also for avid horseman (endless mountain trails), nature lovers (watch big game & other Wild-Life, fields of colorful wildflowers, mountains, trails) , fisherman (fly fishing in our stocked reservoir), 'big toy' enthusiasts (4-wheelers in the summer, snow mobiles in the winter, over logging roads in the back country), snow-shoeing & cross country skiers (unbelievable views & endless roads). Also a wonderful place for a sabbatical, family reunion, or group retreat....a peaceful, natural setting for guests 'to get away'.

Enjoy the warmth of the wood fireplace in the Great Room, viewing the Elk trophy mounts on surrounding walls. The poker table corner is sure to delight those who enjoy a good card game, reminiscent of the old Wild West gambling days! Or step across the hall to partake in a game of pool. The large kitchen is great for entertaining large groups, with an attached sunroom & sauna.

This older ranch home offers lots of room to spread out with the Great Room, pool room, kitchen & office all on the main floor, along with the King bed Master Suite with double hide-a-bed & its own shower & bathtub. On the lower level you will find the Queen bed suite with shower & tub; bunkbed room, King bedroom, 5 single twin beds with 2 bathrooms adjoining the bath & shower.

Looking out the dining, sunroom & office windows, down the road is the ranch manager's house, with the corrals, barns & farm buildings of this operation. Cattle may be present in the corrals, depending on the time of year. With Mountain views of Helena National Forest to the west & Garnet Mountains to the east, wildlife is everywhere - an occasional fox or elk may stray cross the backyard hill! Treat yourself to a rugged Montana Wilderness vacation with over 10,000 acres to explore & come in at night to the comforts of our huge ranch house! Our property is great for your back-to-nature retreat, family reunion, nature exploration, big game hunting, bow hunting or fly fishing expedition. Close to mining opportunities by Helena.

Close to Montana cities - Helena (Helena is Montana's capital, mining nearby, restaurants, historical tours), Garrison, (bars & restaurants), Canyon Ferry (boating), Deer Lodge (prison, hot springs, restaurants), Lincoln (hunting, restaurants, bars) - if you feel the need for civilization!
