It's not an exaggeration to say that properties of this magnitude are few and far between in today's world. This legacy property, locally known as the Reid Ranch, spans along the northeastern front of Glacier Park, just outside of Babb, MT. There are 3,649 deeded acres of fee land, and 32 different geo codes. The ranch has a wide range of land usage; 275 acres are currently producing Sainfoin hay, while another 240 acres are used for grain, alfalfa, and grass hay, leaving 3,134 acres for grazing, recreation, and development potential. The majority of the land can be easily accessed from U.S. HWY 89 or county roads. There are 620 acres that hold 100% of the mineral rights with varying percentages on other pieces. There are multiple water rights that cover domestic, stock, and irrigation and numerous bodies of water in or running through the ranch. A couple of notables are the St. Mary River and the St. Mary Canal along with an assortment of creeks, ponds, springs, and a surface water culvert. There are 2 homes (4 bed 2 bath and a 2 bed 1.5 bath) nestled in amongst the expanse of land, along with storage areas, a barn, shed, shop, and Quonset. The ranch is fenced with a variety of four-wire, mesh, and electric fencing. Currently, no livestock or equipment is being offered in the sale other than a solid set of corrals with sorting pens but there is potential for negotiation. The ranch is located minutes from Glacier National Park. From the home located at 1 Boulder Drive, Babb is 4 miles away, the Many Glacier Entrance Station is 12 miles, and Going -to-the-Sun Road is 13 miles. From the home on Pike Lake Road, the Canadian Border is 4 miles and an hour drive to Waterton Lakes Park in Alberta, Canada. Babb, Montana is a small friendly community with schools (headstart through sixth grade), restaurants, general stores, motels, post office, churches, gas station, vacation rentals, campgrounds, and guiding businesses. There is no pollution of air, sky, water, or light pollution of the brilliant night skies. There is a multitude of wildlife in the area to include deer, elk, moose, grizzly, black bear, cougar, coyotes, eagles, cranes and more. Specific information regarding water rights, mineral rights, easements, crop yield, or to schedule a showing will be approved when buyers submit a qualification letter from a lender or proof of funds from their financial institution. It is a working ranch so all showings will be held during scheduled weekends. This listing is currently taking backup offers as it is in the process of the Blackfeet Nation's first right of refusal period. With so much to offer, it is easy to imagine the possibilities this property can offer. From ranching, farming, leasing, development or to just kick back and enjoy seeing the multitudes of wildlife that also call this place home.
