Absarokee house description
Located along the most scenic route to Yellowstone National Park, this Montana Stillwater Riverfront Retreat is a 2 bedroom/3 bath 2.800 sq ft newer luxury home located directly on the banks of the Stillwater River, one of the premier trout streams in America. If you're looking for a secluded Montana destination for fly fishing, exloring, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, etc., you won't find a more spectacular location.
Professionally decorated in antique western motif, this spacious retreat can accommodate 6-8 people (2 bedrooms and a sleeping loft with a day bed and a futon) and boasts all of the comforts and conveniences of a new home, including satellite TV, high speed internet, enormous kitchen (with dishwasher and trash compactor), sauna shower and jacuzzi bathtub, radiant heat floors, wood burning stove, insulated blinds, all on a completely private 40 acre property with panoramic views of the river, mountains and surrounding landscape.
The Stillwater River, which flows into the Yellowstone, is absolutely beautiful and wild and fishing pressure on the Stillwater River is moderate. This is a 'locals favorite' river where anglers will experience first-class fishing with no crowds - your own riverfront property to fly fish or float down the river.
Five miles from the quaint town of Absarokee, this riverfront home is at the end of a private half mile driveway, only a short 1 hour drive to the Billings airport and a 90 minute drive to Yellowstone National Park. The Stillwater Valley area, explored by Lewis and Clark and boasting numerous markers along the Bozeman Trail, is a 75 mile stretch of two lane roads that starts at Columbus, travels through Absarokee to Fishtail, Dean and Nye where you'll find the surroundings peaceful and the scenery spectacular.
Enjoy the Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness close by with unparalleled wildlife viewing, outdoor exploration, hiking, back packing and camping or venture to nearby scenic Red Lodge Mountain ski resort (45 minutes) offering snow skiing and golfing at several courses.
Enjoy world renown fly fishing for rainbow, cutthroat and brown trout right out the back door, whitewater river rafting, horseback riding hiking, or just relaxing on the wrap-around porches or upstairs decks with the sound of the rushing water. Wildlife abounds around the 3 ponds located on the property: mule deer, whitetail deer, bald eagles, sand hill cranes and great blue herons are just some of the species frequently seen.
If you're looking for a true Montana vacation experience with 'A River Runs Through It' feel and your own private fly fishing location or need a longer term rental to relax and take in all that this part of the country has to offer, you won't find a more perfect place. Short term and long term rental terms available.

Beautiful, quiet, and peaceful cabin
Beautiful, quiet, and peaceful cabin
Our family stayed at the cabin for 6 days and my wife fell in love with the cabin the second we got there. Many antiques that remind me of my childhood but thought that would be a problem for our 13mo old baby but it wasn't a problem at all. The master bedroom has a bed that was extremely comfortable that our baby slept all through the night and had no problem falling asleep, the master bathroom allows you to relax in the sauna and hot tub. There is also a pool table and a poker table. The ping pong table is outside. At night you can hear the running of the Stillwater river, further relaxing you. Modern kitchen with everything you need. Binoculars are provided for you, there are toys in a chest if you have small children. There is also a baby gate too. The fishing is more than great, which is one of the reasons we chose this cabin. We caught rainbows, browns, and mountain whitefish. We saw a bald eagle flying over at around 6pm every night, bighorn sheep, snowshoe hare, deer, elk. The owners have horses, mammoth mules, sheep, cows, coyotes at night, and others. We took the bear tooth highway into yellowstone one day and highway 89 the other days. Absarokee is about 5 miles away with a small market and Columbus is about 8 miles away with a larger market, gift shops, fly shop, large gas station etc. Julie was a wonderful hostess and a joy to deal with, she made us feel right at home. I can't say enough great things about this place and the owners, Julie and Tim. I would highly recomend this cabin for the avid fly fisherman or those who wish to escape from civilization for a while. Thank you Julie and Tim for a most memorable time and we will be back again.

Incredible Stillwater River Retreat - You WILL love this place!
Incredible Stillwater River Retreat - You WILL love this place!
We just returned from a fabulous week at the Stillwater River Retreat. I can't say enough great things about this home, the location, and owners. The home is exactly as described - very tasteful western decor, well stocked kitchen with state of the art appliances, very private with lots of room and very homey. My husband said, "I could live here for the rest of my life." The location is great: only 1 hour from Billings; 15 minutes from Colombus (grocery store, pizza, hardware store, post office, fly shop, etc.); 45 minutes from Red Lodge; and only 5 minutes to Absarokee (smaller grocery store, gas station, ice cream stand, etc.). For the fly-fisherman, we caught lots of brown trout and rainbows right out the back door. This home affords access to lots of river frontage. We saw deer, turkeys, cranes and bald eagles on the property every day. In the nearby areas, we saw coyotes, elk, mule deer, and in the high elevations mountain goals, marmots, and pikas. Great central location for hikes to Mystic Lake, Sioux Charley Lake, and other hikes in the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness Area as well as other activities such as driving the Beartooth Highway, Whitewater Rafting on the Stillwater or Yellowstone Rivers, or just relaxing with a book next to the river. Nearby small towns of Absarokee, Fishtail, Nye and Roscoe have great character and a chance to see "The Last Great Place", Montana. (Did I mention the pool table, ping pong table and poker table provided hours of fun?) Thanks to Tim and Julie for their incredible hospitality. We can't wait to return and when we do it will be for at least 2 weeks as 1 week is not enough!
