About the property

Black Mountain Lodge Is Ideal For Extended Families, Reunions And Retreats.

Historic Black Mountain Lodge is a one of a kind venue for family gatherings, retreats, special events and those seeking a unique lodging option abundant with history and charm. (Please contact host for event rules and pricing).

This historic property was originally a lucrative mining claim during the Gold Rush. The tailings from multiple mining claims can be found in the nearby hills. You might get lucky yourself but don't be tricked by the glittering Fool's Gold that laces the stream! In the early 1900s it became Primrose Farm, a dairy providing fresh milk to nearby Helena. Our family acquired the property in 1941 and we are now heading into our fourth generation as stewards of this remarkable piece of Montana.

The spacious Main Lodge with its sleeping porch and four private sleeping cabins easily accommodate up to twelve guests. A gurgling mountain stream winds its way between the Lodge and cabins lulling you to sleep at night.

During the day take in the panoramic view from the large screened porch. Or hike miles of spectacular trails right from the front door. Wildlife abounds in our mountain meadow and you will spot animals large and small--moose, deer, elk, coyotes, even bear--from both the porch and trail.

The Main Lodge sleeping porch accommodates two twin beds. The four sleeping cabins include a king size bed, a four person bunk house, and two cabins with a full size bed and bunk bed and single bed. A full bathroom is located in the Main Lodge and a multi-user Bath House serves the sleeping cabins.

The kitchen is provisioned with staples such as spices, coffee and cleaning supplies. There is a gas stove, microwave, toaster oven, dishwasher, refrigerator and coffee maker for your use. Cozy linens, soft towels, locally crafted bath soap and a variety of artistic touches will enhance the quality of your stay.

Over the decades Black Mountain Lodge has been an inspirational haven to many. "Somehow the atmosphere, history and natural setting speak Montana, and who would disagree, Montana is good for you!"
