Property Description

Bitterroot Fishing Lodge with a really cool history. Once the home of Jim Burk, Actor, stuntman, and horse trainer for Hollywood. Often the stunt double for John Wayne Jim worked on over a dozen of Wayne's films. As an actor best known as "Trooper" in "Big Jake" and "Bobby Joe" in "The Undefeated". In retirement in the 1980's he purchased this ranch and continued raising horses. His specialty was training a horse to tumble and roll at full speed. This property is in 8 parcels, with 7 of them being buildable lots from 2.11 to 3.17 acres each. There is approx. 1/2 mile of both sides of the West Fork and East Fork of the Bitterroot River. Lodge sits at the end of the road and provides a great deal of privacy, yet only 7 miles from the town of Darby. Bring your horses as property is fenced and includes a log horse barn, corrals, pastures, and approx. 18 acres of fenced irrigated hay ground. Lodge has had many upgrades but still maintains the very "Western" look that Jim Burk created. Massive floor to ceiling rock fireplaces in both the living room and family room. Large deck overlooking the river, view of Trapper Peak from the covered front deck, and loads of wildlife travel through this property. Fish every day out your back door and has an excellent road to the river to launch your raft. Current owner uses this as a short term vacation rental and a family estate. Would make a great spot for a fishing guide, family retreat, continued vacation rental or year round living. Downstairs is set up where it could be used as a separate living area and the 7 lot subdivision could be developed without diminishing the value of the Lodge. Lodge to be sold with all furniture and appliances.. Easy to show, contact your agent and set up a viewing today.
