ABOUT EAST ROSEBUD RETREAT
The East Rosebud Retreat is an exceptional offering situated on the East Rosebud Creek just 10 minutes south of the charming town of Absarokee. This picturesque property features nearly 1 mile of private creek frontage on an exceptional small water fishery. The water’s edge meets a riparian corridor teeming with billowing Cottonwood trees and brush providing excellent habitat for an abundance of wildlife including white-tailed deer, moose, turkey, numerous small game species, ducks, geese, and upland birds. Above the riparian corridor the property transitions to riverside hay meadows that are flood irrigated and produce quality forage historically used for hay production and/or livestock grazing.
Equine enthusiasts will appreciate the 3 new high-quality steel pipe pens, each with their own shelter sheds, plus perimeter fencing ready to immediately support livestock. Additionally there is a concrete pad at the foot of the river which can be utilized as a barbecue area, fishing headquarters, or a place for a gazebo and fire pit. A 45 x 60 ft concrete pad fit for a shop complete with radiant floor heat also sits adjacent to the house instantly ready for a new structure.
