In the style and tradition of Montana's National Park hotels, the Emily A Wilderness Lodge sits on 160 acres of pasture/timber overlooking the Clearwater River. Just below the Lodge this crystal clear river slows to a large lake which overflows over to a stunning waterfall providing a cascading, burble of sound. The Lodge is 9700 sq ft of stately larch logs featuring an open great room with a two story rock fireplace. Large windows overlook the waters where extensive waterfowl are in residence - loons, geese, ducks, sandhill crane, blue heron. 9 bedrooms, 6 1/2 baths, modern kitchen and scenic dining room. Designed by Dr. Keith Peterson (longtime team physician for the Seattle Mariners ballclub), the Lodge is situated to experience the river, lake and tumbling waterfall all at once. With over 1/2 mile of Clearwater River flowing through the 160 acres, a private bridge accesses acres of trails and neighboring Forest Service lands. Benedict Creek joins the Clearwater below the Lodge with a caretakers cabin along side. Includes a homestead cabin with fireplace also along the river. Ideal fishing throughout. Located just 5 miles north of Seeley Lake, the Bob Marshall Wilderness is close by. Missoula International Airport is one hour away. A conservation easement assures future preservation yet allows for an additional premium building site above the lake. A Montana wildlife haven.
