Plains, Montana is located along Hwy. 200 in Sanders County, between Thompson Falls and Paradise, Montana. Despite the often snow-covered peaks in almost every direction, there is free and open feeling to this cozy Montana community. The Clark Fork River runs parallel to the town, and provides tons of recreational opportunities, with fishing, boating, water skiing, at the top of the list! 

Several family owned businesses in Plains keep the town flourishing, and provide residents with all the resources needed for everyday living. There are a variety of restaurants, banks, motels, convenience stores, and gas stations, as well as a pharmacy, a well equipped hospital, a lumber yard, a grocery store, and a variety of specialty shops. Missoula Montana (approximately 75 mi.) is an easy day trip away for those larger shopping excursions, and the county seat, Thompson Falls, is just 20 minutes away.
