From Missoula, drive a short 50 minutes North in to the Flathead Indian Reservation. Crest a hill just outside of Ravalli and be awed by the majestic Mission Mountains. Just a short distance up the valley, heading towards Glacier National Park, you will turn towards the mountains just at Nine Pipes Reservoir. Another 3 miles to go (some on dirt road) before arriving at a sweet, newly remodeled cabin in the woods.

Walk up to a covered porch where later that evening you could charcoal grill your meal. Enter in to the mud room with a custom built bench for slipping your shoes off before entering into the living space with a vaulted ceiling and huge picture windows that look directly at MacDonald Peak and Sheep's Head.

Run through the living area to the bathroom to relieve yourself from the long drive from 'wherever you came from'. Welcome.

The bathroom has a dual flush toilet. Help us conserve water; use the 1/2 flush for #1 and full flush for #2. Don't forget to wash your hands in the small sink undermounted on the custom concrete counter top - ground down to see the aggregate. Wink at yourself in the mirror and head back out to the kitchen.

All kitchen amenities are right at your finger tips. Cook breakfast, fix lunch for your outing and stay in for dinner. While doing the dishes, you can look North towards the Kicking Horse reservoir; looking west enjoy the incredible Big Sky sunsets. Custom cabinetry with concrete counter tops, track lighting and a unique ceiling gives this kitchen a modern feel. A large pantry gives you the opportunity to stay a while without having to take the 9 mile drive in to Ronan for a market run.

Up the spiral stairs to the loft (watch your head, the ceiling is low) where there is a queen size bed with all bedding provided and a small dresser and table space to organize your things. The window facing east gives you incredible views of Mt Calowahcan (formerly Mt. Harding) while looking west you can see the expanse of the Big Sky and watch summer thunder storms roll in.

Sleep well... the design of the home allows for very good temperature regulation and ventilation. Use the ceiling fan to keep the upstairs from getting too hot. Open the windows at night to feel the cool mountain air on your face; close the windows as the Montana sun begins to warm the cabin.

Plan your day over coffee and a little breakfast. Stay close for adventures in the Mission Mountains or head towards Flathead Lake for water sports galore. Further north you arrive at one of America's treasures - Glacier National Park.

We hope you enjoy your stay. Welcome to your cabin in the woods.

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: I am a Montana native. This house has been a true labor of love. My extended family owns and operates the Cheff Guest ranch, just 2 miles from here. Working and living at the ranch over the years has been a gift. I love the outdoors and have spent many hours in the Mission mountains, the Bob Marshall Wilderness and beyond. I own a sustainable building construction company in Spokane, WA. I have a wonderful wife and a great dog. We love to travel (especially in our newly renovated 1960 Shasta camper) and enjoy most outdoor activities including skiing, snowboarding, biking and hiking. We hope you enjoy our home.

                  Why the Owner Chose Ronan:
                  I grew up here on this property but now work and live in Spokane, WA. We want to share this magical place with others. While it is close to Ronan, MT (9mi);, Flathead Lake (15mi), Missoula (50mi) and Glacier National Park (100mi) it is in the heart of Big Sky Country and the natural beauty of Montana.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Our house has been completely renovated over several years. We have re-purposed two buildings from a former structure and have used sustainable, locally sourced materials (when possible) and environmentally friendly finishes. The house is nestled in the beautiful Mission Valley on 10 acres. Though close to the amenities of town, it is an outdoor enthusiasts paradise. It is adjacent to Kicking Horse bird refuge and is within 2 miles of Nine Pipes Wildlife Bird Refuge. Within minutes you can be at one of the many trailheads heading into the magnificent Mission Mountain Wilderness. Just 11 miles away is the National Bison Range (one of the oldest wildlife refuges in the country)
