The cabin property provides winter range for elk, moose and deer and a private 7 km trail for hiking and cross-country skiing. Private trout pond for catch and release fishing and open pit fire ring with seating.

20 minutes drive from the cabin to the alpine ski-area complex at Big Sky and Moonlight Basin. 30 minutes by car to Yellowstone National Park. Other nearby amenities include Lone Mountain Ranch Nordic Resort with 80km of groomed ski trails and 20 km of snowshoe trails and sleigh/hay ride dinners; outstanding restaurants, shops and boutiques; Big Sky Meadow Village 18-hole golf course and trout fishing on the blue ribbon Gallatin River and nearby streams. Tennis is available at the Big Sky Tennis Club and on public courts at Ophir School.
