Sometimes Montanans fall into a daydream where we imagine living in some of the most remote parts of the state. We look to the mountains and wonder, "Could I camp up there," or see a clearing near a river and think, "I bet a cabin would be so cozy there," and then imagine the quiet and privacy of being in the trees and not talking to anyone.

If you've got the money, this land might be that place from your daydreams.

But, there are two especially interesting details about the listing from Lynn Kenyon at Live in Montana Real Estate, which is currently on the market for $253,900:

  1. The property includes three mining claims.
  2. The property has physical access but not deeded access.

What is a Mining Claim?

Seeing land for sale that references mining claims is sort of unique to Montana compared to buying real estate in other parts of the country. According to the Bureau of Land Management,

A mining claim is a parcel of land for which the claimant has asserted a right of possession and the right to develop and extract a discovered, valuable, mineral deposit. This right does not include exclusive surface rights. -

You would need to contact the real estate agent to find out if the land is separate from the mining claims, but based on the listing, it does mention that you could "build a cabin" or have other temporary living structures like a tiny house.

What Is Deeded Access?

The listing says that there is a road but it doesn't have deeded access which means that if you owned the land, you wouldn't necessarily own the way to get to that land. The listing does say, "...bring cash or seller may carry. No deeded access is also deemed uninsurable access. Folks have been accessing the claims for over a century, but easements were never included on the roads. This is unlikely to ever change." Might be something else to ask the agent about.

To fuel your daydreams a bit more, here are some photos of the property:
