GALLATIN RIVER RANCH (GRR) is a 5,900(+/-) acre residential ranch community outside Bozeman in the Horseshoe Hills of southwest Montana, bordered on the south by the legendary Gallatin River. Offering stunning views of the entire valley floor, showcased by eight mountain ranges, rivers, and rolling farmlands, the GRR is comprised of individual 20 - 60 acre parcels of varying topography. Offering a unique selection of homesteads, there is one that will become the foundation of the comfortable upscale lifestyle you've dreamed of.

The Gallatin River Ranch offers a variety of opportunities in which to integrate you into the community. Whatever your dreams may hold, these spectacular homesteads are priceless for many reasons, and to be enjoyed by every generation.

The pristine quality of our authentic rural community is carefully preserved. Our GRR Ranch Manger oversees the Ranch in order to provide a vigilant environment for you and your family. Our full-time GRR Maintenance Supervisor maintains our private road system to ensure access through every season. As we maximize their use and minimize their impact, our roads are smooth and well maintained, but they are not paved. GRR is proud to host a volunteer fire department, complete with licensed EMT Responders and on on-site Fire Chief.

Montana's heritage grips our imagination! This land is rich in history, legend, and lore. In the late 1800's settlers homesteaded in this area. Today, the undaunted spirit of pioneers, Native Americans, and Lewis & Clark has been blended to perfection at Gallatin River Ranch. We've combined Old West timelessness with modern day amenities in order to create the ideal Montana lifestyle. So, put on your favorite boots and get comfortable--Gallatin River Ranch is waiting for you!

An image from 1921 hangs in one of Manhattan's largest downtown businesses. The scene in black and white shows women in dresses and men in collared shirts before storefront windows. A man leans against his bicycle and a few Model T-era cars are staged along the main street. The people in the town portrait look proud and it seems they wanted to lock that feeling in history.

Crisp air, fresh snow, and gorgeous mountain views draw travelers to the slopes every winter from mid-October through mid-April. In fact, seven of the top ten fall destinations for vacation home rentals are cities with mountains equipped for snow sports. As the prime season for skiing and snowboarding approaches, travelers have plenty of U.S. resorts to choose from spanning from coast to coast. Factors such as number of trails (and their levels of difficulty), lift ticket prices, and the amount of snowfall all play a role in deciding where to visit. A mogul-covered mountain that's fitting for an avid, lifelong skier might not be an optimal fit for a newbie who would benefit from shorter, less difficult runs. And large families, for instance, might prefer resorts with less expensive lift tickets.
