Property Facts


17700 South Valley Road is located on the south side of the famed Centennial Valley in Lima, Montana. A 30+/- drive from I-15 will find you on the property. The closest commercial airport can be found in Idaho Falls, ID, just an hour south of Monida.



Lima, MT is a charming little community located in the beautiful, wild, and scenic southwest Montana. Lima boasts a great K-12 school system with the average student/teacher ratio being 9 students to every 1 teacher. The school also houses one of the only pools in the area. The population of Lima is estimated at about 231 people.

To the south of Lima, only 96 miles, is where the bustling town of Idaho Falls, ID sits. There is an estimated 52,716 people who call the city home. It is situated along the Snake River and has all the features of big city living while still embracing a small-town charm. Offering its own symphony, opera, chamber orchestra, community drama, performing arts groups, museums, zoos, golf courses, airport, shopping, higher education facilities and of course professional minor league baseball, it’s hard to imagine finding nothing to do in this town.

In addition, Dillon, MT is approximately 80 miles away and offers a considerable array of commercial, institutional, and social enterprises including grocery, banking, auto-dealers, movie theater, churches, restaurants, hotels, and taverns.




The Centennial Valley is very vast country. It’s a place of sweeping grasslands and wetlands, embraced by the forest with ragged peaks of the Centennial and Gravelly Mountains. The Centennial looks very much as it did more than a century ago. In parts of the valley, not so much as a power line mars the view. In the winter, just a handful of people inhabit the valley. Summer, the human population is usually fewer than 100—and they are far outnumbered by cattle.



Improvements include a nostalgic barn,  a comfortable 2BD/1BA home, and and older cabin that is rich with history.

Property also has two wells and a small pond, and excellent physical access and views that will never bore you.
