In the age of driverless cars and A.I.-integrated homes, it’s sadly impossible to rewind back to the age of bucking mustangs and dusty saloons.
That is, unless you’ve got a 255-acre old-world ranch, like the one just put up for sale for $6 million in Montana.
The expansive property includes four houses, as well as a standalone saloon, stagecoach stop converted into a cabin and sauna, three ponds, a dining building and horse facilities.

The main residence, built after the current owners bought the property in 2003, is 9,500-square-feet with four bedrooms and six bathrooms. As Bloomberg Pursuits notes, it “can sleep 20 people comfortably with a large loft that has five twin beds, accessed via hidden stairs behind a false door.”
In total, 40 people can rest their heads at the ranch, with enough space that no one’ll be calling for a showdown at high noon.
The clincher, though, is the saloon. The owners built it after realizing “they didn’t have a main gathering point large enough to hold all their guests,” writes Bloomberg Pursuits. Now, with a 24-foot-long walnut bar, commercial beer coolers, separate kitchen, an entire stuffed brown bear and room for over 100 people — it’ll handle even the rowdiest gatherings. And when you’ve had enough, simply ride off to your separate sleeping quarters.

And if 255 acres isn’t enough, the ranch is adjacent to the two million-plus acres of Lolo National Forest.
