Flathead Lake Overlook is a one-of-a-kind 1,367+/- acre ranch property in Dayton, MT that features the original 1912 farmhouse overlooking Cromwell Island on the west side of Flathead Lake. Owned by the Huckins family for decades, the "Huckins Ranch" as it is locally known, has views of the Mission Mountains that provide a scenic backdrop for the modestly updated 1765sf, 4 bedroom and 1 bath ranch home. The property also has a historic barn and multiple outbuildings including a granary that was modified to host 1055 sf, 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom guest/managers home. The Montana Land Reliance conservation easement allows the next owner to update or replace the existing homes in their current locations. The rich history of Flathead Lake Overlook and its proximity to Flathead Lake are just the tip of the iceberg with this property. The south-facing slopes, end of the road privacy, and the half-timbered, half grass pasture provide ample space for your next cattle or horse operation or a significant family retreat. The ranch has 5 fenced, well-watered pastures. Naturally formed Bow Lake, a 25+/- acre pond and wetlands area up in the timbered portion of the ranch provides a unique alpine water source for multiple species of waterfowl and other birds as well as elk and deer. To the north, the ranch borders thousands of acres of privately timberland creating excellent elk and deer habitat. Just a mile way in Dayton there is a boat launch and storage facility to enjoy all the recreational pursuits of Flathead Lake. Additional recreation is nearby as Lake Mary Ronan is just a few minutes up the road. Less than one hour to commercial air service in Kalispell and 1.5 hours from Missoula. The quaint town of Lakeside provides dining and recreational opportunities less than 15 minutes from the ranch.
