Quaid’s Paradise Valley Ranch (also referred to as “Camp Warren Oates”) is an absolutely gorgeous recreational ranch property situated on 418 +/-acres in one of the most beautiful valleys in southwestern Montana. The ranch sits at the base of Emigrant Peak near Dailey Lake, approximately 30 miles from the north entrance to Yellowstone National Park.
“The backyard is basically Yellowstone Park,” says Quaid.
Breathtaking views, approximately two miles of fishable Six Mile Creek, two trout ponds, and miles of riding and hiking trails will satisfy the avid outdoor enthusiast. The diverse and spectacular terrain of the ranch spans from native grassland to the forested mountains which provide access to the 930,000 acre Absaroka/Beartooth range and neighboring Gallatin National Forest. The habitat supports a variety of wildlife including wintering elk herds, migrant and upland birds, moose, white tail deer, beaver, otter, bears and mountain lions. Paradise Valley is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. The mighty Yellowstone River flows through Paradise Valley providing some of the finest fly fishing in the world as well as an inviting playground for kayakers and rafters.
Steeped in history… there are remnants of old gold mines to explore. In the past, parts of the ranch belonged to director Sam Peckinpah and actor Warren Oates, who were friends and spent time together at the ranch. Quaid has owned the property since the 80’s.
While Quaid’s ranch is rugged and wild, historic Chico Hot Springs, and the charming yet progressive town of Livingston are nearby offering activities for the whole family. The improvements are an impressive example of timeless harmony, and rustic elegance where an abundance of contemporary conveniences have been integrated into the natural landscape. The 5300 square-foot, four-bedroom, three-bath main house that Dennis built in 2000 was featured in Architectural Digest in 2003. Additional improvements include an observatory, four charming guest houses, wine cellar, ranch manager quarters, and horse facilities making this a truly exceptional Montana retreat.
Rich in amenities, the ranch presents a unique investment opportunity for the discerning buyer seeking a spectacular recreational property in the Livingston Montana area.
