Brief description: Originally built in the early 1900's, this unique stone ranch house was fully restored in 2007 to its original beauty. Gorgeous wood floors, restored original woodwork trim throughout the home, historic style lighting fixtures and tasteful artwork are just some of the details that add to the overall sense of history at the property. The authenticity and quality of the restoration has allowed the Thextondale Homestead to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Stone House and accompanying Overlook Cabin are located on an authentic, working Montana ranch several thousand acres in size. Guests staying at Thextondale will enjoy the use of a huge yard about two acres in size immediately surrounding the Stone House and Overlook Cabin. In addition, guests enjoy access to approximately 100 pristine acres of the ranch via walking trails and foot bridges leading down to nearly a mile of fishing access and wildlife viewing along the Madison River and the Madison/Blaine Spring Creek channel. The bird and wildlife watching, as well as the fly-fishing opportunities, are truly second-to-none!

General location: The Historic Thextondale Homestead is located approximately 5.5 miles south of Ennis, and fifty miles north of West Yellowstone - one of the main entrances to Yellowstone Park. There is an airport in West Yellowstone, as well as in Bozeman, which is about an hour and twenty minutes from the home.

Bedrooms and bathrooms: The home has three bedrooms and three full bathrooms. On the main level of the home is one of the bedrooms, with a luxurious king size bed and attached bathroom. This bathroom is accessible from the living area of the home also. Upstairs, guests will find another bedroom with an equally luxurious king size bed and attached private bathroom. Across the hall is the third bedroom, which is set up with two queen size beds and attached full bath with a walk-in style shower. For flexible sleeping space there are two sofa beds in the Overlook Cabin.

Kitchen: This wonderful kitchen has all the modern conveniences - yet still retains the home's old fashioned charm. The chef of your group will find all the high quality cookware and serving ware that any meal may need. Happy cooking!

Dining room: A 'formal,' yet casual dining room with gorgeous built in china cabinets is located just off the kitchen. The spacious table will easily seat a group of eight. This beautiful dining area has dining room chairs that are extraordinarily comfortable!

Living room: A spacious living room is located off the dining room, in the home's 'front parlor room.' Cozy sofas with windows looking out across the native landscaped yard and to the main ranch beyond provide a great place to relax at the end of the day. Guests will find a nice flat screen television with satellite service and DVD player.

Overlook Cabin:Additional space for relaxing, as well as sleeping space for one or two more guests is available in the Overlook Cabin just across the yard from the main house. This sweet cabin has been reconstructed from an old log tack barn. It includes an open living space with two comfy sofas and a harvest style dining table for meals and playing games. A small, propane fired stove can be used to warm up on a chilly evenings.
