About Crow Chief Meadows

Crow Chief Meadows is a small, Montana Corporation, solely owned by Gary and Clara Borland, both life-long residents of the Absarokee area. The Borland family homesteaded here in 1913 and Clara Borland's family came to the area in 1903. Her family has a long history in Montana since her great-grandmother is documented as the second white child born in Virginia City, Idaho Territory in 1863 before Montana became a state. The Borlands have three married children and six grandchildren. Both daughters are married to Canadian ranchers and live near Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Crow Chief Meadows was developed from a 480 acre parcel of rolling hillsides with a number of springs and a small creek running through the property.  The area including the creek bed has become a 38 acre park that has been left in its natural state with only walking paths for access.  No future development is planned for this park since it is natural habitat for numerous species of animals.  The park and all other common areas are owned and maintained by the Crow Chief Meadows Homeowner’s Association.

The development consists of 65 lots ranging in size from 1.5 to 39 acres.  All of the properties have a magnificent view of the Beartooth Mountains and the subdivision adjoins a 640 acre parcel of State Land.  Though the available lots do not have direct access to this public land parcel, there is access from a Stillwater County Road less than ½ mile from the property. This land is available for public use with the purchase of a State Land Use Permit.  It affords a beautiful place to ride horseback or hike.  No motorized vehicles are permitted on this State Land property. 

The Rosebud River is only a mile from the subdivision with public access available at the bridge that crosses the river.  There is an abundance of Rainbow and Brown Trout in the stream and even an occasional Mountain Whitefish.  A two lane bridge was completed in 2002 and improvements were also made to the access road from Highway 78 to the subdivision.
