Great cabin with all the amenities. Far enough from everyone but close enough to run to town for supplies or for dinner and a movie. Beautiful views with the Rockys on the West and prairies on the east. Wildlife is everywhere. This was our second vacation here and hopefully we will return.

Year Purchased: 1919
About the owner: Unlike most vacation rentals, we did not buy this property. This is a family owned property passed down through 4 generations to the present owner, whose great grandparents homesteaded the ranch in 1919 raising both sheep and cattle. Originally, it was the Bar-Lazy K-Triangle, but since we no longer raise livestock, it's become the Moore Homestead. There is a sign inside the gated entrance, stating the name of the property. There are presently 3 houses on the property, but not all are ready for vacationing at this time. (Two single family dwellings and one duplex dwelling.) By next summer, this would be a great place for a family reunion, utilizing all 3 buildings. Each building has a designated name to know which one is being discussed. This building on this site is Deer Crossing Getaway. For hunters, there is no hunting allowed on the property although we are extremely close to state and federal lands where hunting is allowed. There is a meat processor in town, 30 miles away on the far south end.
Why the Owner Chose Choteau:
This property is situated in a dramatically beautiful setting, rather like straddling two different worlds. Set in the foothills of the Rockies; to the west are the Rocky Mountains Sawtooth Range and to the east are the rolling prairies and buttes. Two distinctly different eco-systems. The canyons are made of glacier carved granite and have the look of Yosemite National Park on a smaller scale with a variety of conifers and aspen and hanging Alpine valleys. We are extremely close to the Lewis and Clark National Forest and the Bob Marshall Wilderness. This uniquely beautiful area has inspired many a writer and artist and has been included in numerous books and novels. The late Pulitzer Prize winner, A.B. Guthrie, (whose lands borders ours), was inspired by the area and it's western history to write many of his stories. ('The Way West', 'The Big Sky', the movie script for, 'Shane', among them.) Other books made into movies based in the area were 'The Horse Whisperer' and 'Legends of the Fall'. Maybe you will be inspired, too!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This area of Montana is unique in it's eco-system and sparsely populated, no crowds! The close up vistas and views of the mountains; watching the colors change throughout the day, on those rock and slab behemoths creates its own enchantment. Ripe with wildlife in the area, both hunters and photo enthusiasts will LOVE this area! A person can have as much quiet and serenity as they need or as much activity as they can handle, depending on what the vacationer's needs are. If you are looking to 'just getaway', this vacation home is perfect for your needs! For indoor times, there are books, games, radio, wireless Internet access and satellite TV. Updated furniture and appliances completes the comfort level! Close by are over a 1000 miles of mountain trails for hiking, lake fishing, fly fishing, small game and big game hunting/both bow and rifle, bird watching and numerous scenic vistas for photo and other artistic opportunities, snow skiing and ice fishing in the winter. The town of Choteau offers a museum, antiques shop, a theater, golf, bowling (not open for a quarter of the year, during summer), restaurants and eateries. A small town 10 miles north of Choteau, named Bynum, offers a dinosaur museum and a very reasonably priced rock shop with many unique finds. If you are a rodeo fan, periodically, there are rodeos held at the Choteau Fair Grounds. A fiddler's contest in the summer and an art auction in the fall. The Choteau Visitor's Center has numerous brochures and information. The U.S. Forest Service also has a building in town, where anyone can gather maps and information on what to do and where to go in the mountains and for hunting and fishing regulations. This is an all year lodge though the weather is variable: be prepared for possible extreme conditions, especially in the winter. A 4-wheel drive vehicle is advisable.
