This property provides the ideal backdrop for off-grid living. Solar panels would be a great option for power out here – there are over 250 sunny days per year! For water, you can drill a well or haul water in. Average water levels in this area are an economical 60 feet, and provide a plentiful groundwater supply. Install a septic system, and you’re ready to build your weekend oasis, a place to escape the chaos of city living. Dirt roads lead directly to the property, keeping it both remote and accessible.

Rachel made the entire land purchase a "piece of cake". She walked me through everything and was right on top of things. As soon as I sent the money, the deed was notarized and recorded only a couple of days later. I just visited my new property in Wolf Creek Montana today and I am very pleased with the purchase. Thank you again 😊

The Ashbrook Land Company is a superb company. Their communication skills and desire to help you obtain the land of your dreams is top notch. Probably some of the best service I’ve had when buying a piece of land. I would recommend them to anyone.

I just purchased a piece of land from Ashbrook Land Co., LLC, and I am very happy with the professional yet personal approach that Bob and Rachel Ashbrook gave to me.The whole process was easy and painless, and only took a couple of days. Everything was done online, but I felt completely secure giving out my personal information, because I think the Ashbrooks are truly honest people to deal with.
