The cabin sits on a knoll with a view of the mountains in all directions and glimpses of the Yellowstone River to the west. Enjoy your favorite refreshment on the covered porch while the sun sets and casts its rosy glow on the mountains before you.

The front door opens to a warm and welcoming knotty pine great room with a river rock wood-burning fireplace. The kitchen is well-appointed with a four-burner stove, a microwave, pots and pans, glassware, coffee pot and grinder, crock pot, blender, toaster, knives and more.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Mom and I near the Rio Verde River outside of Fountain Hills, AZ. I got my spirit of adventure from her. She will tell you that I was "Made in Germany" as she and my father were on an army base there in 1955. They loved Germany, Austria and Italy and I grew up watching slides of their adventures there. I have since gone to Europe on my own, Mexico, the Caribbean, Canada. Love all those places and meeting the people that live there.

Why the Owner Chose Pray, MT, USA:
Rare opportunity to purchase a delightful cabin on a special piece of property.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Quiet, views, lots of wildlife, great location near Yellowstone, Livingston and Chico Hot Springs.
