Wonderful. Charming. Cozy. Perfect. These are the words our guests use to describe us. Nestled in the forest just one exit off of Main Street, Bear Creek Log Cabin is truly a hidden gem offering the real Montana experience for those looking for the BEST of ALL worlds: Proximity to town and MSU (10 min), ski resorts (45min), close to Yellowstone and Big Sky, surrounded by nature, wildlife, unpolluted views of the milky way and shooting stars right from the comforts of the hot tub while listening to the relaxing rushing waters of the creek a few steps away. Come unwind in our luxurious cabin. Our guests often extend their stays and wish they could stay longer!
Under new ownership and completely restored, this charming 2 bedroom, 2 full bath, 1500 square foot Rocky Mountain Trapper Style Bear Creek Log Cabin was constructed 30 years ago with lodge pole pine trees harvested from this 10 acre property bordering Bear Creek & State Forest land and with a running creek known to have Brown & Rainbow Trout in the deeper pools. Often you will see moose, white tail deer, elk, and once in a while black bears. They especially like to feast on the berry bushes that are scattered throughout the property. There are also some wild turkeys who love to stop by for a visit as well as chipmunks, squirrels and a variety of birds.
