No place... SPEAKS... 'Montana' like Quaking Aspen Ranch!!

Built in 1999 with comfort, elegance, and privacy in mind – Quaking Aspen Ranch is like no other. Located on 32 acres of river bottom on the banks of the blue-ribbon trout stream, East Rosebud River, this log home features 5,000 square feet of modern living.

Massive windows throughout the house allow for scenic viewing from every room. Montana’s Absaroka and Beartooth Mountains and the East Rosebud River provide the backdrop.

No matter which of the five bedrooms you rest your head in, crack the window to enlist the babble of the River. You’ll be asleep in no time.

The main floor has a spacious kitchen and dining room adjoining a great room with a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. Adjacent to the great room is a romantic master bedroom. The master bedroom has a private deck and bath – complete with a Jacuzzi tub and a two-person shower.

The length of the complete first floor is family room – outfitted with another large, wood-burning fireplace, ping-pong table, foosball, big screen TV, DVD player and movies, and Xbox console and games. The first floor also has two queen bedrooms, each with a private bath and closet.

A balcony/bridge connects the two queen bedrooms on the third floor. Each bedroom has a private bath and closet.

Relax, fish and/or hunt right on the private riverfront property. Cast for trout – brown or rainbow – in one of two ponds, one on each side of the massive 'yard'. Or you can fish live water by casting the river bottom, a blue ribbon trout stream.

Expect to see wildlife daily. The river bottom is attractive and is some of the finest whitetail deer habitat in Montana. The river bottom is also home to sandhill cranes, blue heron rookery, turkey, moose, beaver, and red fox to name a few.

In the evening gather around the large fire pit to enjoy a bonfire and toast S’mores.

Enjoy many nearby attractions within minutes of the Ranch.
