Ennis cabin description

This more than 100 year old cabin is quaint and secluded in the Shining Mountains II area near the Ennis National Fish Hatchery. It sits above Wigwam Creek which flows into the Madison River and is next to The Bar 7 Ranch which is one of the largest in the area. These two things make it very private and no obstruction to the views of the Madison Mountain Range. There is a great deck facing east for afternoon wildlife viewing. The front porch facing north is great for morning quiet time and coffee and possibly viewing antelope and even a cattle drive to the Bar 7. The master bedroom view frames sphinx mountain which is 11,000 ft high. We love our little spot in the wild and think you will too. We have a great area for long walks. The Madison River and Varney Bridge access is about 1 mile from the cabin, West Yellowstone is about 1 hour 15 minutes,. I promise you will enjoy your stay here. There are so many things to do in the area but the best spot is our deck. Come try it for yourself.

Keywords: Quaint 100 year old cabin with the amenities of today. You will have the feel of a cabin from a Log Cabin magazine when staying here. There are great views from our new dining area and our deck is the best for the afternoon wildlife viewing.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1997

              About the owner: My name is Debbie and I'm a Delta Airlines Flight Attendant for 35 years. My husband is a Wildlife Biologist and should be an Ornithologist. We both love the outdoors and found Montana and the Madison Valley on a camping trip in 1991. We bought our cabin in Dillon and moved it to the property in Ennis. At that time we started our renovation which was mostly finished in about 1 year. We have since remodeled and added on. We have also built a Barn/Garage in which we have a studio apartment that we rent also. It is perfect for two people.

              Why the Owner Chose Ennis:
              We spent three different summers looking at the Montana area. We love the three valleys: the Paradise Valley, Gallatin Valley but our favorite was the Madison Valley.. We loved the wide open spaces and Big Sky views. There is just something about this area that is addictive. We've made some great friends and had some great times. We know you will too.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              My favorite thing to do right around my cabin is my morning walks and 4 wheel rides. It is mostly flat so you can walk for 2 and 3 miles. There are hills if you need more challenge. The wildlife is abundant. Antelope, deer, marmots, an occasional bear and moose. A variety of birds for my bird watching husband. Even though we have neighbors, our cabin is very private because we are next to the pasture of the ranch and on Wigwam Creek which runs thru the ranch. The Milky Way is awesome when there is no moon. But the full moon is just as awesome. My cabin is very cozy and comfortable. My dining area overlooks two ponds on the Bar 7 and we have a scope for wildlife viewing. If you see a bear it is most probably down in the canyon and is not threatening but fun to watch with the scope
