Shelter Island, Montana, began earning its name back in the late 1800s, according to its agent Dawn Maddux. The native people of the area would hunt buffalo by running them off Painted Rock Cliff (an outcrop neighboring the island that still exhibits tribal paintings). The story goes that one buffalo swam its way to safety at Shelter Island. In the early 1900s, a drowning fisherman did the same, and lived here for a time. There was also historically a sweat lodge on the island, Ms. Maddux said.

Today, Shelter Island is home to Montana’s largest private estate, which was completed in 2011.

Consistent with its history, it remains a restorative and peaceful retreat: a 22-plus acre private island with a main house and a boathouse with guest quarters.

The U.S. Treasury Department has approved Montana's 25 Opportunity Zones as nominated by Governor Steve Bullock. 

In April 2018, Bullock nominated 25 areas of Montana for designation as an Opportunity Zone, after communities submitted proposals for consideration.

With the help of Prospera, the City of Bozeman was selected for an Opportunity Zone in May 2018. The Zone is a designated census tract south of Bozeman (along 19th/MSU) that is designed to provide tax benefits to investors. These Zones are new creations in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, and will act as an incentive for infill development.

For homebuyers today, luxury doesn’t necessarily equate to price point — often it is actually quite personal. Luxury can be more time at home with family, proximity to friends and loved ones, or convenience in terms of amenities and features.

What does this mean for real estate professionals?

It means that we too have to start thinking of luxury differently. Its definition is as unique as every client who walks through the

Considering it can snow in Montana at any time (and often does, in fact, in early summer), we fully embrace the blissful few months when we can take a nice, scenic drive without worry. There’s something nostalgic about packing up some snacks and hitting the road for a relaxing Sunday drive, and these roads happen to be perfect for just that.

And considering it's one of the most scenic drives in the entire country, if you live anywhere near Red Lodge, you should hit the road this summer. 2. Highway 12 around Lolo Pass dunadan / TripAdvisor The pass is the highest point of the historic Lolo Trail, between the…
