Nostalgia hangs heavy in the air while rocking in your chair on the glorious wrap-around porch while sipping your freshly brewed coffee gazing at the blazing sunrise. The dreamy ranchette is complete with a tool shop, a bunkhouse, and irrigation to keep your animals fat and sassy on good Montana grass! A 20' x 20' outbuilding houses a rough walk-in freezer with a wooden floor, and the other half has an area for chickens with a dirt floor. There is a long list of updates from the complete remodel in 2020 including new colonial style windows, a new furnace, a new metal roof, and new siding. A mudroom is essential for country living. This one does not disappoint! The home features a new enclosed 8' x 16' luxury mudroom! Don't forget to factor in the bonus attribute of bordering BOR and then state land just across the county road so your endless views are protected. The Milk River is within walking distance so grab your pole and reel in a Channel Catfish! It can't get much better than front porch rockin' watching the sunset on a blissful Montana evening!

Local Area

As the county seat of Phillips County, Malta, Montana remains much the same as it was when Lewis and Clark roamed through in 1805. It is marked by diversity in landscapes with a variety of wildlife. The town of Malta was incorporated in 1909 and is rich in cultural history. It was a railroad station stop for the Great Northern Railroad. Malta serves as a notable stop along the Montana Dinosaur Trail. Enthusiasts can visit the Phillips County Museum and the Great Plains Dinosaurs Museum to gaze upon the evidence of a world that once was.

Area Attractions

Early Day Outlaws

Montana is well known for the days of the gun-slinging cowboy. Kid Curry's stomping ground in the 1880s was the Little Rockies country about 40 miles southwest of Malta. On July 3, 1901, Curry and his partners, Butch Cassidy, the Sundance Kid, and Deaf Charlie held up the Great Northern Railway's No. 3 passenger train. They blew up the express car safe and stole a bag of gold coins and $40,000 in unsigned and worthless banknotes. It was soon after that Curry and his gang departed Montana.

Bowdoin National Wildlife Refuge

A grass prairie region of the wide-open plains of north-central Montana. The Bowdoin National Wildlife Refuge spans 15,551 acres. It was established in 1936 as a migratory bird refuge. The birds flock to the cover and nesting areas provided by the saline and freshwater wetlands, native prairie, and densely planted shrubs. The Milk River supplies the refuge with most of its water through a system of canals. As you travel the 15-mile self-guided tour, expect to see waterfowl, shorebirds, birds of prey, grassland songbirds, beavers, muskrat, coyote, white-tailed deer, and pronghorn antelope. In the fall hunting season, the refuge allows the harvest of waterfowl and upland game birds with a permit. This sprawling landscape of diverse habitats is located seven miles east of Malta.

The Milk River

Forty-one different species of fish swim the milky waters of the Milk River. One of prominence is the Channel Catfish. On May 8, 1805, the first “tourists” to this region, the Lewis and Clark Expedition, camped at the confluence of the Milk and Missouri rivers, about 18 miles southeast of present-day Glasgow. After exploring the river, Lewis called it “Milk River” because of its color resembling that of a “cup of tea admixture of a tablespoon full of milk.”

Nelson Reservoir

Designated as one of the most ultimate Walleye fishing areas in the state of Montana, Nelson Reservoir covers 4,000 acres of water. Located in northeast Montana 17 miles east of Malta, the reservoir attracts anglers promising to produce record-class fish! Nelson Reservoir is stocked with Walleye, Yellow Perch, and Northern Pike. The reservoir produced a state record for Walleye with a whopping 14-pound one! Ice fishing is also popular when the cold months set in. Spearing, angling, and tip-ups are the most popular methods when ice fishing. The 288-acre area allows for fishing, camping, boating, or swimming.

Fort Peck Lake

Fort Peck Lake is Montana's largest body of water at 134 miles in length and a maximum depth of 220 feet. The shoreline spans more than 1,520 miles. That's longer than the California coast! More than 50 different kinds of fish call this body of water home. In 1933, a 3.8-mile dam was constructed across the Missouri River creating the reservoir. Anglers flock here for the Walleye, Northern Pike, Paddlefish, Sauger, Lake Trout, Small Mouth Bass, and Chinook Salmon. There are several access points and boat ramps.

Charles M Russell National Wildlife Refuge

Known as the CMR Refuge, it surrounds Fort Peck Lake and is managed by the US Fish Wildlife Service. The Refuge provides over one million acres of public land for fishing, hiking, hunting, camping, bird-watching, and other outdoor activities. If you're looking to observe game in its natural habitat, this refuge shall reward. It is the second-largest refuge in the continental US. In September and October locals and tourists from all over gather to watch the bull elk bugle and battle for the cow's attention. Miles of parked cars can be seen while people sit on lawn chairs and watch for hours the wild display the elk present. Herds of deer, red fox, and coyotes can also be observed. Bird watchers can delight in spying mountain bluebirds and black-capped chickadees. Osprey, spotted sandpipers, and white pelicans can be found along the coast of the reservoir.
