About the owner: My husband and I moved back to our home state of Montana after living in the corporate life of big cities. We came home to care for elderly parents and to enjoy our grandchildren. The cabin has been the scene of many happy family times for us. And we are glad to be able to share it with families from all over the country, meeting new folks and seeing the joy that this magical place continues to bring to others.
Why the Owner Chose Red Lodge: We searched for many years for a place to have respite from care giving and the rigors of daily life. We feel that God 'gifted' us this special place so that we could in turn share it with that the peace and tranquility we have enjoyed would also be enjoyed by others who need it.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: We walked into this place which 'magically appeared on the road in front of us' on a Sunday we knew that this was IT. The mountains, the horses all around, the sheep, the wild birds, the pond of jumping fish, the porch swing, the PEACE AND QUIET. We know you will feel it too....
