Shining Mountains West is part of the old Robison Ranch in the North Meadow Creek area of the valley. The whole subdivision has spectacular views down the whole Madison Valley, including Ennis Lake. These 20-acre parcels have varied terrain - from the flat, productive lots in the old hayfields with irrigation ditches and shared water rights up to the mountainous lots with trees, large rock outcropings and seasonal access. Some lots border BLM public lands. Shining Mountains West holds the water rights and a certain number of irrigated acres are specified for the lots, based upon historical usage. The water is managed by the SMW Water Association.

Shining Mountains West, Lot 69
Lot 69 is one of the best lots in Shining Mountains West! Has Trees, water, great views, 20 fenced and gated acres plus Hollywood History! Scenes from the movie, Return to Lonesome Dove were filed on this property and remnants of the set are still there. Not one, but TWO seasonal ditches run through the property providing stock water as well as shared water rights* for irrigating 12 acres. A beautiful, deep, tree-lined draw carries one of the ditches through the lot and provides habitat for numerous wildlife. Deep, lush grass covers the lot and appears to be ideal for livestock. Canyons, rocks and 2 HUGE rhubarb plants - as additional bonus! *Shining Mountains West owns the water rights and allocates them to lots with historical usage - currently being adjudicated. There are no guarantees for the quantity or during what period of time water will be in the ditches.
