Our community

In the southwest corner of Montana lies one of the most scenic and beautiful valleys in the country. Ranches are scattered throughout the landscapes amidst acres of lush hayfields nursed by the Bitterroot River as it meanders the length of our valley. Surrounded by the theatrical backdrops of the Bitterroot Mountains and Sapphire Range are quaint communities, unique and rich in history. Home to approximately 40,000 residents, the Bitterroot Valley has an abundance of public lands accessible for recreational enjoyment.


Recreational opportunities in the Bitterroot Valley include hundreds of miles of trails for hiking, horseback riding, hunting and fishing in the blue ribbon streams, recreational lakes for boating and swimming, and white water rafting on the Bitterroot River. Natural hot springs are just minutes away. Excellent skiing is close by at the Montana-Idaho border. Golfing at its best is offered by the valley's three courses, two public and one private. There are two wildlife refuges located in the valley offering opportunities for wildlife studies and photography along with several historic sites to visit.


From apartments to single-family residences to homes with acreage, the Bitterroot Valley offers a variety of housing options. For information on real estate listings, visit Bitterroot Real Estate.


With seven public school districts and three private schools, there are great educational opportunities for your children, and the University of Montana is just 45 minutes north in Missoula.


There are plenty of restaurants, breweries and retail stores to meet your needs in the Bitterroot Valley, along with large department stores in Missoula and Spokane, Washington.
