Anglers Lodge$ 995,000
A Unique Business Opportunity in Montana’s Bitterroot Valley!
On 13+/- acres just 3 miles south of Hamilton, the hub of Montana’s Bitterroot Valley, and with Highway 93 frontage and Bitterroot River access, this lovely set up has a beautiful owner’s residence and 9 furnished lakeside rental accommodations. This property is currently operating as a well-established popular resort/lodging service; but has wonderful potential for many diversified uses and great expansion opportunities.
A main lodge accommodates a two level managerial residence with decks and sun room overlooking the lake and Westside mountain range. Two guest apartments are housed within the lodge as are the main business office and a laundry facility. A double car garage and two storage outbuildings offer ample storage options for the on-site owner.
An additional seven clean and tidy rental units are on premise; all constructed of log with knotty pine interiors and providing the rustic, woodsy essence anticipated of a Montana fishing lodge while also supplying modern essentials such as high speed internet and cable television feed. Five individual furnished cabins each have a living room, dining area, kitchenette, bath and master bedroom on the main floor and a cathedral ceiling with balcony bedroom upstairs. The two-story chalet is a duplex unit offering two fully furnished residences. All cabins are being sold with their rental facility furnishings.
Each cabin has a private patio that looks out at the glorious lake shared only with other Anglers Lodge occupants. A nature path and wildlife trail encircles the perimeter of the lake taking in open areas with breathtaking mountain views, as well as wooded areas with plenty of flora and fauna. Take a quiet evening stroll to enjoy a sunset or spy on the waterfowl that enjoy the serenity of this body of water. Fishing may be done in the lake or on the Bitterroot River, an easy walk via a 100’ easement at the northwest corner of the property. The Bitterroot River is a world-renowned blue ribbon trout stream capturing the attention of avid fly-fishermen from far and wide.
Anglers Lodge is located adjacent to a well-established gas station, campground and convenience store with licensing and sporting goods facility. Together the two businesses complement one another to provide all the immediate services for their clients.
Recreationally, Anglers Lodge is not only convenient to the Bitterroot River for fishing and rafting, it is also in close proximity to numerous Bitterroot National Forest trailheads leading to tremendous hiking, hunting, snowmobiling and ATV pursuits. Lost Trail Powder Mountain offers exceptional downhill skiing throughout the winter season and the Chief Joseph Cross Country Ski Area provides varied courses for all Nordic ski levels…both located an easy 45 miles from the property.
Hamilton is just a quick drive for great shopping and fun dining experiences. Medical, legal and professional services abound in this growing town which also has a jet-capable airport suitable for private aircraft. Missoula, the largest city in western Montana, is 45 miles to the north and is host to a vast array of services, an airport with commercial flights daily and is home to the University of Montana.
What an opportunity to own a stunning property in the beautiful Bitterroot Valley with such great investment potential!
