|Sweetwater's Harrison Homestead Ranch - Livingston, Montana
We have designed our Montana package around a magnificently restored farmhouse, the Harrison Homestead. The ranch is located on the banks of the Yellowstone River and Sweetgrass Creek with over a mile of river frontage on the Yellowstone.
As the name indicates, the Homestead enjoys a rich history which has prompted is placement on the National Register of Historic Places. The Harrison house was built in 1883 just across the Yellowstone River from the Crow Reservation. Homesteaders' journals talk of the original settlers exchanging shots with Crow Indians riding on the other side of the river.
A short time later, a teacher at the local school teacher, Sara Thatcher, was shot in the Homestead by a disgruntled suitor from a nearby ranch. The heartbroken cowboy was then chased down by a posse and hung three miles up the Sweetgrass Creek in a gulch that is now named Hangman's gulch.
Despite its colorful past, the Homestead is a peaceful, relaxing and enjoyable home located in the middle of a very pastoral setting. In 2001 Dale and Margaret Vermillion renovated house with the help of Kirk Michaels, a well known architect from Livingston Montana.
The home is perfectly suited for a lodge. The rooms are large, charming and authentically re-furbished. Each room comfortably accommodates two anglers. The dining room and living room are both comfortable and well furnished with pieces from the era.
The lodge capacity is six anglers, and we encourage parties to consider occupying the entire lodge for the week. Our private chef is able to deliver professional meals to suit fishermen's tastes. Our cuisine will leave nothing to be desired. Fresh baked bread, pastries and rolls compliment meals that highlight creatively prepared local beef, seafood, and garden fresh vegetables. The high repeat rate among our clients has made this a wonderful place to guide. We look forward to seeing the familiar faces year after year. Please call early on the Harrison Homestead, as it is one of our smallest and most popular programs. The openings and dates are limited and fill quickly. We will look forward to fishing with you.
The Lewis & Clark Cabin
This charming western style log cabin, built in the 1870's, has been fully and tastefully restored. The large, sunny deck is a wonderful place to relax. In the summer, the cabin sits in a meadow surrounded by cottonwood trees and willows and as the seasons change, two mountain ranges come into view, the Absarokas and the Crazies. On 750 acres with a stocked trout pond, with catch and release fishing on the Yellowstone River, the location can't be beat for fisherman, mountain bikers or nature enthusiasts. With a certain western charm, this fully restored log cabin is comfortably furnished with your relaxation in mind. The log furniture in the bedrooms continues the western theme.
The two bedrooms, full bath, complete kitchen, living room with television which includes VCR and satellite reception will be sure to accommodate 4 individuals in complete comfort.
