This multi-million dollar, architect designed home sits on 60 acres ensuring absolute privacy and breathtaking views of the Madison Range. Located in the exclusive gated community of Sun West Ranch, you have private access to 3 miles on both sides of the Madison River. Only 18 homes dot this 2000 exclusive wildlife preserve. Almost every other home is a private vacation home. Very few of these exclusive homes are available for rent. Sun West Lodge is an easy drive to Yellowstone Park through the West Yellowstone entrance. Once you sit out on the huge wrap around deck or dine with family and friends in the vaulted ceiling dining room looking out at your forested view, you will come back year after year.
This wonderful home offers plenty of space for everyone. The main floor master bedroom with a California king sized bed has its own full bath as well as an office and walk out access to the deck. Upstairs, the north gues bedroom has a king sized bed and a private bathroom and balcony. The second upstairs bedroom has a queen sized bed with a private balcony. This bedroom shares a bath with the two bed Western bunk room but also has a sink for freshening up when the bathroom is in use. On the main floor there is a half bath for visitors.
Cuddle up in front of the TV in the sunken living room with a two story stacked rock fireplace. The huge family kitchen welcomes everyone to gather and share stories of the day's adventures.
Out on the large deck, guests can gather around the built in gas grill and you prepare a delicious dinner and gaze at the surrounding mountains and pines.
Speaking of adventures, if you aren't hiking through the private ranch, riding your horses in the Madison Valley or fly fishing along the Madison River, you also have lots of other choices. What about.....

Hire a guide to teach your whole family the art of fly fishing

Head 30 miles north to the quaint town of Ennis to shop, antique, grocery shop and dine. Head 10 miles west from there and visit the Old West town, Virginia City. There you can take a guided walking tour, horse drawn carriage tour or get on the steam engine train to visit the town of Nevada City.
Or head north from Ennis to Norris and their funky natural hot springs. Most evenings you can sip a glass of wine, order a light meal and listen to local musicians, all from the hot springs pool.
Once home from your daily adventures, you can grill your dinner on the deck or order in a beautifully catered meal. Laundry is a snap with a huge laundry room conveniently located on the main level.
Horses are welcome and have pasture and water within your view. No horses, not a problem. Hiking is also perfect as you travel along designated footpaths on the Ranch or past the Ranch in the Lee Metcalf Wilderness area.
An added benefit for your peace of mind is that the property managers live ten miles from your home and are available to answer any questions or solve any issues anytime you need them.
