When you look up at the night sky, what do you see? If you’re standing on a front lawn or back porch in Montana, you’re likely staring right into the dazzling maw of the Milky Way. It’s romantic, isn’t it? But with increasing light pollution across the globe, dark skies are becoming a rare commodity. Here, we’ve rounded up six Montana homes with epic stargazing potential.


1335 Bridger Canyon Spur Road, Bozeman  

Nestled in the heart of Bridger Canyon, and positioned to take advantage of some of the best views in the area, is a spectacular 40-acre property in a league of its own. Originally a small dairy farm, the property was homesteaded in the early 1900s. The home is set in the hillside, with a pond and exceptional mature landscape and waterfall system that wraps around the master wing. Just below the main house is another large spring-fed pond, complete with floating dock, sauna building with a patio, sand beach, horseshoe pits, and picnic tables. Open meadows, active springs, and treed hillsides create the perfect habitat for large herds of elk and wildlife that meander the property throughout the year. The home spans over 10,923 square feet, yet each space in the home was thoughtfully designed with comfort, style, and usability in mind. $7,800,000
