Why Leanne Butler chose Jamestown

We absolutely love this cabin and the area. It's so beautiful and serene and the perfect getaway for a couple, family, or group of friends. It's beyond nice to have your horses right there where you can see them, be able to tack up and just ride off directly from the cabin to various trails within the park.

Perfect Long Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to the Big South Fork area and Deer Haven Lodge was an incredible find! What a gem! We loved the house and the location is perfect in relation to the many hiking trails in the park. We were so grateful for all the little details and touches the owners put into making us feel welcome and provided for, including a wonderful goodie basket. Thanks, Leanne!

Wonderful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is clean and well maintained, the surroundings are quiet, and it's conveniently located to the parks. The owners take pride in their home and pay attention to the details. It has everything you would need. The owners also go above and beyond to make each guest feel welcomed.

If someone needs gluten free food, you may wish to bring certain items with you. This is a rural area. The nearest larger grocery store is a Wal-Mart about 15 miles from the cabin.

  • 5 of 5

The property was amazing, very well maintained, clean, decor was beautiful. Stalls are covered and nice size for our mule and horse and there big girls . Hot tub was great after long days of riding, you can take a hike behind cabin and there we’re beautiful bluffs, cabin slept 6 very comfortably, on a quiet dead end road so no traffic. I would highly recommend Deer Haven Lodge to anyone that want to get away and have a peaceful and relaxing vacation. Location is only 17 miles to Jamestown, centrally located to trailhead and local points of interest. John and Leann are the nicest people and go above and beyond to make your stay memorable. If we head back that way we will be back.

Beautiful, quiet, clean and well appointed

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I made a somewhat last minute booking for a 3 night trip to BSF. Leanne made every effort to make the schedule work for us which was greatly appreciated. There were fresh flowers on the table and fresh fruit in a basket, very nice touches that make the statement that the owners care about their visitors and their home. The house was pristinely clean and very well appointed and supplied. Everything has been thought of. We enjoyed our stay very much and look forward to returning again next fall, if not sooner!

Peaceful, Secluded & Refreshing

  • 5 of 5

We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our recent stay at your cabin! The courtesy you showed us with the wonderful fruit basket, fresh flowers on the table and the cold Brita filtered water in the fridge awaiting our arrival was very thoughtful and much appreciated. The cabin was well decorated and very clean, the firepit was perfect for evening smores and a little music under the stars! I cant say enough we came to hike and see some of Big Forks beautiful fall colors but spent the majority of our time just relaxing at the cabin! It was perfect! Thank you for your hospitality!
