Description

A unique opportunity to own this historic landmark nestled near one of Montanas premiere flyfishing destinations. Ekstroms Stage Station has been owned and operated by the same family since 1955. The familys dream was to recreate a pioneer village on this historic site adjacent to legendary Rock Creek. The sale includes the 12-acre parcel with creek frontage, multiple cabins, shower house and laundry facilities, restaurant, RV park with 34 hookups, 17 tent sites, two teepees, with access to Rock Creek. This well-established business is now ready to be passed on to new owners to expand upon the current use or create their own vision. A variety of lodging options and infrastructure is already established, creating a rustic, yet comfortable setting, perfect for a fishing or guiding retreat, RV park, destination dining, and so much more. Included in its history, the location is known as one of the favorite camping and fishing destinations of the Flathead Indians as late as 1926, where each fall they would return to partake of Rock Creeks bounty. After purchasing the property in the 1950s, the new owners spent the next 15 years collecting artifacts and furnishings with the plan of creating an atmosphere as close as possible to what travelers might have found 100 years prior. By the 1970s they began acquiring vintage log buildings, these included log homes from Missoulas westside, another from Hall, Montana and the old Birmingham Flats stage station building. This final structure became the inspiration for the name, the Stage Station Campground. In 1975, the dining room opened with the bar in the old school opening the following year, known as the Stage Station Saloon. The old Rock Creek School was then refurbished as a recreation center for campground guests. This labor of love has resulted in a special place for locals and travelers alike to take a step back in time, to slow down for a meal, or stay for a day or longer, and experience a pace of life from years past. Take a moment to appreciate this hidden gem that preserves a piece of our early Montana heritage. Located within a corridor offering a range of outdoor activities, yet less than a 30-minute drive to Missoula. A rare opportunity to own a piece of local Montana history and continue the story.
