  • Spectacular views, Convenient location, Cute, Clean & Well-Appointed Cabin

    "As other reviewers mention, the photos are not a fair representation of this property. It is much better than the photos! We were all pleasantly surprised upon arrival, including my 70 year old mother who is accustom to staying in 5-star hotels. :) There were 10 of us, 6 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 young children. Plenty of room for all of us. My 70 year old father had suffered a broken femur 8 weeks before this trip and he was just beginning to walk on a cane. This property was perfect for him. He could not walk done the bank to the river, but he loved sitting out on the very large wrap around porch. We spent every night at the outside table for happy hour and watched the fishermen and listened to the river. The kitchen is well equipped and the table accommodated all 10 of us easily. Plenty of dishes and utensils for all of us. The property does sit right on a major road, which I was very concerned about before we arrived. You will hear occasional road noise from cars and tractor trailers, but it is not a very busy road, so it's just every now and then. None of us were kept up in the night from it. We highly recommend booking a float trip for fly fishing the Madison River. We had 3 boats and used Matt, Taylor and Pat, who were all great guides! We also booked a horseback riding day trip with Mike and spent the day in the Mammoth area of the park riding horses and enjoying the sites without seeing any cars or other people. There is an AWESOME restaurant just 5 miles away called Grizzly's. So, even though the cabin is remote (as everything is out there), you do have a couple of dinner options closer in. No matter where you stay, you will be driving to get to your next adventure. Having said that, this cabin was centrally located to all of the day trips we made ... Yellowstone Park, Jackson Hole, Big Sky, and Pocatello, ID. David is great to work with. He is incredibly responsive and accommodating. We highly recommend this cabin and we will certainly be back again! :)"

  • AWESOME VACATION GETAWAY!

    "The Payne Creek Cabin that we rented from Randy was awesome! We drove from Florida to Montana in 3 days, just over 2700 miles, and arrived at the cabin about 2pm on Monday, September 1st. The cabin was exactly like described and represented in the pictures. It was nicely stocked with everything someone would need to spend a week, to include cooking utensils, sheets, towels, etc. The cabin was very peaceful and the Payne Creek flowing right by the cabin was very relaxing. We saw several deer around the cabin almost daily, to include 3 bachelor bucks walking up the gravel road in front of the cabin on our first morning. The turkeys came by a few times. We used Randy's "things to do list" and seen almost everything on the list, with the exception of Spruce Lake. My Wife and I drove to Spar Lake and it was beautiful. As we left there, we attempted to find Spruce Lake and followed the signs until we came to a mountain road that was very untraveled and ended up stopping at a point on the other side of Spruce lake, but we never could find out how to get down to the lake. Kootenai falls was breathtaking, and the Road to the Sun in Glacier National Park was awe inspiring to say the least. We saw elk, pronghorn antelopes, 3 baby black bears, and 5 mountain goats. It was a trip of a lifetime. We will be planning another trip back to stay in Randy's Payne Creek Cabin, after our back sides get un-flattened from the 38 hour drive from Montana back to Florida. Randy, thank you very much for allowing my Wife and I the pleasure of renting your very nice cabin near Bull Lake! The Shoup Family!"

  • Even better than the pictures!

    "We had a fantastic stay here. All of our expectations were met or exceeded! Everything was as described in the listing. We would recommend this home to anyone and would love to stay here again in the future. Some things you can't tell from the pictures or description: * Super Clean. * River is closer than it looks in the pictures. Property is even prettier in person. * If you google earth/maps/street view it, you can see that it is close to a road. Don't be alarmed! This is the East River Road and there was very little traffic. Also, the speed limit is 35mph, so no roaring traffic. Completely peaceful. * The two bathrooms are much better in person than in the pictures. They are modern, new(ish), and very clean. * Fishing was good - but could be a challenging spot for beginners. The area directly in front of and downstream of the house is a pretty severe cut bank. I had better luck walking up or downstream to a couple of less steep areas that had more of a gravel bar (step down to the high water mark if crossing into other properties!). This was especially good for fishing with kids who were just learning. I fished for maybe two hours per day and caught ~10 fish in that span. Couple of rainbows and lots of whitefish. One small brown trout. We were fly fishing catch and release only. * Every room in the house has great views of the Yellowstone river and Paradise Valley. Truly beautiful and the house takes advantage of it. * The master suite is awesome. Tall ceilings and looks right out at the river. Master bathroom has great views. While in the shower one morning, I watched an osprey dive into the river and take off with a fish! * One of the rooms is purely a lending library (w/ the washer/dryer in it). Fun to see all of the books that were there and again - great views out the window. Would be a nice room to read in if you weren't sitting out on the giant porch in one of the rockers or the swing. * Just right for 7 people. We had 3 kids who loved the loft area with the twin beds, and also two grandparents along. Didn't feel crowded and everyone had a great place to sleep. We spent our days doing day trips to yellowstone. It is about 20 minutes from the house to Gardiner/the entrance to the park. The house was an awesome home base for those day trips and again we would recommend it for anyone!"

Montana Travel Tips

Things to See and Do at Montana Vacation Rentals

Montana cabin rentals and homes offer up wide open spaces, tall mountain ranges and abundant wildlife. It is often referred to as the Big Sky State because of its wilderness appeal. Perhaps Montana's most famous natural attraction is Yellowstone National Park and the tall geyser named "Old Faithful" that erupts on a regular basis. Yellowstone vacation rentals are close to great wildlife viewing. It is home to grizzlies, wolves, and various species of deer, elk and other antelope. There are several hiking trails in the park and one of the highlights is the hike up the Iceberg Trail. The route visits the Ptarmigan Falls and then traverses the southern shore of the glacial lake known as Iceberg Lake.

For those that enjoy water sports, Montana cabin rentals along the river offer many adventure opportunities. There is whitewater rafting, paddling and fishing to be enjoyed. Another favorite way to explore the landscapes is on horseback. There are numerous road and mountain bike trails available for cyclists. For technical riders, there are miles of forest and mountain single-track sections. When the season turns, it isn't the end of the adventures. Instead, when the snows blanket the mountains, it attracts even more visitors. Montana cabins are also close to some of the best ski resorts in North America and they are also some of the more affordable to visit. There are miles of downhill ski runs catering to beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. There are also Nordic and cross country skiing trails and various snowboarding terrain parks. Snowshoeing is a popular pastime and many of the parks offer winter snowshoe hikes. There are also snow coach tours that take you sightseeing and wildlife viewing in the cozy comfort of a heated all-terrain vehicle.
