Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Cabin + Studio apt., (Sleeps 8)

'Check out our Video - scroll to the right of the last picture above.'

Our custom built, 1600 sf cabin, which we affectionately refer to as 'The Fishing Shack', was completed in the fall of 2008. An additional 350 sf studio apartment was completed in 2013. The property is located on the Madison River, known for its majestic beauty and world class fly fishing. The cabin is a gorgeous, 40 minute drive to the entrance of Yellowstone National Park and about an hour to the winter hot spot, Big Sky Ski Resort. With its fabulous location, reclaimed barnwood floors, custom kitchen, 3 flat screen TVs, a Jotul wood-burning stove, and floor to ceiling windows, it is a magical vacation spot certain to deliver year round fun.

The master suite has a queen bed with pillow top mattress, Smart TV, French doors opening to a 5 person Bullfrog Jacuzzi Tub overlooking the river, and a custom built pebble shower with dual shower heads (including a rain head). There are two bedrooms upstairs, each with log bunk beds (twin on top & queen below). Open the windows and let the smell of the mountains and the sound of the river lull you to sleep. The open loft has a cozy seating area, a third TV with DVD player, and Game Cube system for the kids (and the kids at heart). Directly on the river, you will find a large fire pit perfect for staying warm and making s'mores while watching the fishermen in your family catch that big brown just feet away.

Our cabin is located 30 minutes from Ennis and 35 minutes from the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park. It is situated in a friendly residential community with about six other homes and delightful neighbors. It is across the river from a Forest Service campground and a short walk to the world famous 'Grizzly Bar & Grill' (you must sample their delightful wine selection).

Our location is perfect for year round Montana fun and adventure. In the winter, spend your days skiing the famed slopes of Big Sky Ski Resort, snowmobiling in West Yellowstone, cross country skiing on miles of pristine trails, watching the bald eagles soar above the river while soaking in the jacuzzi, or simply enjoying the beauty of the Madison while curled up with a good book by the wood burning stove. Fill the long summer days with activities such as fishing from the property, floating the Madison, exploring Yellowstone National Park, hiking beautiful mountain trails, horseback riding, listening to live music while sipping local wines and soaking in the Norris Hot Springs, experiencing an authentic Montana rodeo or riding the antique railway in historic Virginia City.

We hope you enjoy our cabin as much as we do, and we look forward to sharing the beauty of Montana with you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Dave, Here are my comments added to your listing… All true “We have always wanted to Visit Montana, and this cabin was the icing on the cake!The pictures on this site do not do it justice! It is not only a beautiful place to stay but a great place to relax. We enjoyed the river, lots of fishing from the property and rafting down the river. The drive to Yellowstone was only 35 minutes and well worth it! The owners were wonderful to deal with; my deposit was returned very promptly. I am definitely staying there again. We have been lucky enough to travel all over the world and this was one of the BEST vacations we have taken!!” Will talk to you In March to book again next summer J Thanks,Robbin

Beautiful location. The cabin met out every need. Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fantastic week with our children and grandchildren here at The Fishing Cabin beautifully located on the scenic Madison River. The cabin met our every need. The views are great. The location is perfect for Yellowstone as well as the Virginia City/Nevada City areas. It is also reasonable for a trip to Jackson, Wy. We have really enjoyed our time here. This worked out perfectly.

Beautiful cabin. Super friendly and attentive owners. Amazing location and scenery.

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here in late June. The weather was perfect. Great spot for fly fishing right outside the cabin, but also close to several outstanding fishing spots. Fairly close drive to Bozeman for fun shopping, museums, etc. and West Yellowstone for, well, Yellowstone and zip lining.

So much space and amazing views from the cabin. Clean and welcoming. Our family of 6 had a wonderful time.

Heaven

  • 5 of 5

The cabin itself is far more sophisticated than one thinks of when you hear "cabin". The home was obviously built with love of detail and the touches that reflect that, at times, the family enjoys it as much as the guests, makes it that much more special to stay there. Heaven on earth, even with unexpected snow. It was that much more magical.
