The 45,000 acre Red Rock Lakes National Refuge was established in 1935 and is home to over 241 bird species. At a wide spot in the road is Lakeview, Montana, the headquarters of the refuge and a great spot to stop and get first-hand information on this remote and beautiful area.

Over 700 miles of trails are located in this wilderness along with hundreds of lakes providing some of the best alpine hiking and fishing anywhere in the entire world.


Of the approximately 385,000 acres in the valley, only about 100,000 acres are privately held, and much of that land is protected by conservation easements. About 90% of this private land is controlled by 15 large ranches. Home to less than 100 people in the summer (far less in the winter) cattle far outnumber people in the valley.


Marshall is also well known for its wildlife, particularly big game such as; moose, elk, mountain lion, wolverine, big horn sheep, black bear and grizzly bear – the US Forest Service believes that the grizzly population is higher here, than in any other place in the country outside of Alaska.


This broad east-west valley is home to extensive wetlands, in fact, it is the largest wetland in the entire Yellowstone Ecosystem. Two large lakes, the Upper and Lower Red Rock Lakes dominate much of the valley. Situated just north of the 10,000 foot Centennial Mountain Range separating Montana from Idaho, a rough 51 mile seasonal dirt road winds its way between Henry’s Lake, Idaho and Lima, Montana and provides the best access to the valley.

Located along the northern border of Yellowstone Park, the Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness contains the highest peaks in Montana, among which is Granite Peak, at 12,799 feet and one of the highest points in Montana.

The wilderness is composed to two distinct mountain ranges – the Absaroka Range rises to the east of the Paradise Valley, south of Livingston, while the Beartooth Range is west and south of Red Lodge Montana. The Absaroka’s are primarily steep volcanic and metamorphic mountains with imposing ridges and deep valleys while the Beartooths are more like alpine plateaus laced with lakes.

Established by the Wilderness Act of 1964, this is the wilderness by which all others are measured. Alpine lakes, waterfalls and dense old-growth forests punctuate the landscape between some of the most dramatic mountains, ridges and outcroppings anywhere in the


According to The Nature Conservancy, “The Centennial looks very much as it did more than a century ago.”


“The Bob” is the fifth largest wilderness in the lower 48 and home to some of the wildest back country in the country. Almost 2,000 miles of trails, traveled only on foot or by stock carefully lace their way through spectacular rock formations, such as the Chinese wall, which averages 1,000 vertical feet and stretches out about 22 miles in length.

Serving Bitterroot Valley, Big Hole Valley, Missoula, and Surrounding Areas

We found that Jan King and Rod Freeman were the best real estate team we could have ever hoped for when we put our home on the market. From the beginning, they put us at ease with their broad knowledge of the market and professionalism. At every step of the way, they were “there”, at every showing personally presenting our home to potential buyers and navigating us through all the steps to a successful completion. Jan and Rod are good people, trustworthy, friendly and thorough. We could not have asked for a better selling experience. R & T Victor, MT


Rod is a Montana native, born in Livingston and raised in the Beartooth Mountains south west of Billings. Dude wrangling, working cattle ranches and rodeo were a large part of his life growing up.



Your Local Ranch and Recreation Specialists

Jan King has over 45 years of high volume real estate sales in western Montana. Her expertise helps buyers locate and purchase their Montana property with confidence. Her listings are some of the finest offerings in the State. Jan and her team offer professional photography, drone video productions, and quality staging for the best online presentations in the business.

Rod retired from the Army in 1983 and followed that with a career in upper retail sales and operations management returning to his native Montana in 2003 to begin a career in Real Estate. His wife and current “family” include three horses, three dogs and two cats. He and his wife Christie are active equestrians. Rod rides in the Vaquero tradition of natural horsemanship while participating in cattle sorting events, having trained with Buck Brannaman, Peter Campbell and currently with Ty Heth, a trainer of this art and a resident of the Bitterroot Valley. Rod and Christie ride together participating in Working Equitation clinics and competing in their shows.

Rod is very active in community activities, serving as a Commissioner on the Ravalli County Fair Grounds Board, on its Rodeo and Events Committees and as an Ambassador for the Bitterroot Valley Chamber of Commerce. Whether selling or buying, Rod is a “top hand” at all real estate services.

Just for a bit of background on my testimony: My parents placed their ranch property on the market and I was minimally involved until their health and age related issues demanded I play a more prominent role regarding the sale of their property. That said, both Jan King and Rod Freeman are highly involved and personally vested in the sale of your property from start to finish. Their expertise, commitment and overall knowledge of the MT real estate market is second to none! Additionally, they have the empathy and compassion to deal with various family dynamics involved in selling a property that has special meaning and sentimental obligations. I highly recommend Jan King and Rod Freeman for your Montana Real Estate needs. J.L. Alberton, MT

Jan and Rod did an amazing job -- they helped us buy the log cabin of our dreams. We did much of this transaction remotely, so they were instrumental throughout the process helping us line up lenders, inspectors/inspections etc. They went well beyond what I would expect from a realtor. A real pleasure to work with and now good friends! I cannot not say enough good things about them. L.R. Darby, MT
