Nestled into mature stands of pines, the Hattie Creek Ranch captures the soul of each visitor who steps foot on the property. Located on a very private 82+/- acre estate in the western part of Wyoming's Black Hills, the ranch features a recently updated farmhouse surrounded by mature pines and oaks, productive apple and pear trees, and an expansive garden and greenhouse. Hattie Creek flows through the heart of the property between two large reservoirs creating riparian areas for a myriad of aquatic life, nesting and migrating wetland birds, and herds of both whitetail deer and mule deer. The higher vantage points on the ranch are uniquely positioned to take advantage of panoramic views of the Bighorn Mountains and the Black Hills, including Devil's Tower.
From the expansive front porch, enjoy the peacefulness of county living while taking in awe-inspiring Wyoming sunsets. Listen to the early morning gobbles of Merriam's turkeys and the countless species of resident birds who make the ranch their home. It's not uncommon to see deer or elk stroll by while relaxing on the porch or walking in the yard.
Hattie Creek Ranch is truly a rare find and one that can only be appreciated by seeing it for yourself.
Hattie Creek Ranch was homesteaded in 1916 by a young family looking for the freedom and opportunity offered in the west and sought by so many. Here on Hattie Creek is where they set their roots and laid the foundation for generations of successful sheep and cattle ranchers, many whom still reside and ranch in the area. The original hand hewn log cabin still stands on the east side of the ranch. The first homesteaders were gritty and resourceful and without their perseverance through the difficult times, Wyoming ranching history would not exist as we know it.
The present owners have lived on the property for the past 46 years creating many memories while raising two sons and countless numbers of livestock. The entire family is very involved in agriculture and the owners are only selling due to the opportunity to move closer to their larger family ranch, which they operate with their two sons, daughter-in-laws, and grandkids.
An updated four bedroom farmhouse style home with a large wraparound porch is centrally located on the property. Adjacent to the house sits a 3,000 + sq ft shop building, greenhouse, calving barn, loafing shed, and a working set of corrals. The house is serviced by electricity and a privately owned 1,000 gallon propane tank, and is set up to use both well and spring water.
Two reservoirs connected by Hattie Creek and two tire tanks provide year-round stock water sources for horses, cattle, and wildlife. A centrally located spring fills the tanks and is also connected to the house and serves as irrigation water for the garden and lawn. The home is connected to both the spring and to a shared well which provides nearly 60 psi of pressure for domestic water use. Lush green meadows and productive hay grounds give the owners enough high quality grass to graze a small herd of cattle each year and also put up enough hay to get them through the winter months.

The town of Broadus, Montana lies 45 miles to the Northwest and Spearfish, SD is 100 miles to the East.
