Arrow Hill Ranch is a place for those seeking a lifestyle of great Montana living, big sky, craggy peaks, natural beauty, and sunny days. Just outside Hamilton, Montana, - a quaint and charming town of just over 4,000 residents and the Ravalli County seat – Arrow Hill Ranch is strategically situated in the midst of the Bitterroot Valley on 272.4 acres of prime land and is ideally suited to a wide variety of lifestyles and recreational opportunities.
Located in the southwest corner of Montana, the Bitterroot Valley, a paradise for the outdoor enthusiast, is nestled between two of the most majestic mountain ranges in the western region of Montana - the Bitterroot Mountains on the west and the Sapphire Mountains on the east – and is one of the most scenic and beautiful valleys in the country. The Bitterroot River, as seen in "A River Runs Through It", meanders through the entire length of the valley.
A four-lane highway connects Hamilton to the nearest urban city, Missoula, which is a little over 47 miles away, increasing the exposure to Hamilton while making it much more convenient for current commuters as well as for those wishing a cultural, sports, or new shopping experience. A bike and walking path runs parallel to the highway stretching from Hamilton to Missoula.
Of significant note, the world-renowned Rocky Mountain Lab is located in Hamilton and recently expanded its research facility by 100,000 square feet with an approximately $66.5 million investment. This expansion created the need for a number of ancillary support businesses and personnel.
Shopping in downtown Hamilton and the Bitterroot Valley area have been given the moniker "The Banana Belt" because the valley offers more sunshine and pleasant days than any other valley in the state. In fact, the average is 270 sunny days a year. This advantageous climate is a plus for those seeking the grand living of the Montana lifestyle. It is one of the significant reasons this location has been discovered as a desired retirement area.
Adding to the quality of life in the Bitterroot Valley is the availability of excellent education and health care, an array of services and shopping, and a wide variety of cultural events and celebrations.
