Stillwater River borders this 5-acre property bringing fresh mountain waters coursing over rocks and through the trees. Coveted river frontage lots are far and few. Leave your sound machines behind! Build your dream home on this parcel and fish out your back door! With a backdrop of the Beartooth Mountains, the setting is gorgeous. It is also a great spot for a vacation home or hunting cabin; there are many ideal building spots that are level and flat. Power is conveniently underground at the easily accessible access road, Spreading Winge Lane. Open your windows and fall asleep or wake up to the sound of the river flowing while breathing the fresh air and smells of the Quaking Aspen and Douglas Fir trees. A small drainage near the river creates a pond, and the meadows were once irrigated so they generously blanket the ground. The acreage has one previous owner that left it untouched and in its natural state. Any direction you look fills your vision with panoramic sweeping views of the mountains and wilderness. This high-end area is abundant with recreational opportunities. Hike the many trailheads, fish, camp, hunt, or just take in the sights of the scenery and the awesomeness of the wildlife. A property with secluded acreage and its own length of waterfront property is certainly rare so ask about this property quick!
Nye, Montana is in Stillwater County nestled at the base and in the foothills of the Beartooth Mountains. The picturesque scenery makes for a gorgeous setting for the community as the locals will tell you they are more than just a town. Nye is at 4825 feet elevation and 80 miles southwest of Billings. Historically, Nye was one of the liveliest mining camps in the state and was named for Jack Nye, the original discoverer of copper ore in the area.
The Stillwater River is a tributary of the Yellowstone River. Contrary to its name, the river is far from being very still. The river begins in the towering mountains of the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness Area and flows through 20 miles of dense forest before spilling out into rolling prairie and canyons for another 45 miles until it reaches the Yellowstone River at Columbus. This river is rugged, wild, and beautiful. It has significant white water with a swift current. Fly- fishing is popular and brown, rainbow, and cutthroat trout are plentiful. Any dry fly imitation or attractor will work in these waters. Below the town of Nye, brown trout grow in numbers and size. Because of the rocky bottom of this river, a good pair of wading boots may be a wise investment! Floating the Stillwater River takes an experienced floater because of the extensive rapids and rocks.
Elk can be found in this hunting district of 575. They have been frequently observed in the Fishtail and Work Creek areas. Other game includes turkey, deer, mountain lion, and black bear.
