For many folks, the idea of having their own island would be a dream come true. Think about it, a place surrounded by beautiful water where you could escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.  A place where you could sit back and relax and not have to worry about the outside world showing up and knocking on your door.

Sounds like paradise, right?

Hold on though, what if that island was located here in Montana? Even Better right? Of course, even if that did exist, where would it be and what would something like that cost?  We're glad you asked because such a place does exist here in Montana and it just happens to be for sale.

So what about living accommodations?

Not only does the island come with the barge, but there are two different residential structures as well.  The main villa, and a guest Villa.  The main Villa is an enormous 45 thousand pulse square feet French-inspired home that is made with rock quarried near Gardiner Montana. Originally planned to have 3 to 4 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms, there is certainly the possibility to do something incredibly special with the property as the inside is a blank canvas. The main property also includes an underground shooting range.

The guest villa isn't nearly as big, but still rather impressive, and did we mention that there is a boat dock that is big enough for a 70-foot yacht?

According to the website, the properties will need to be finished on the inside and require updating, however, if one is willing to spend 72 million dollars on their own island, you would think they would be ok with a little remodeling, right?

The island has multiple fuel tanks and a huge generator that would allow you to live off the grid for up to 3 months if needed.

As mentioned, this is the largest private island west of the Mississippi River, which in itself is quite something, but you also have stunning views of Flathead Lake and the nearby mountains, making this one of the most unique properties in the world.
