About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + hide -a- bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6 max)

It's time to book your Montana fly fishing trip today. Great spring, summer and fall dates available. The 'browns and bows' are waiting for you. The River's Edge Retreat is conveniently located a few short miles north of Craig and south of Cascade. Enjoy the peaceful river view from a rocking chair on the large covered deck or wade fish the 90 foot of private river frontage. The grassy lawn gradually slopes to the waters edge where you can wade fish early morning or evenings. This is the perfect place for a combination of floating and wade fishing.

River's Edge Retreat is a comfortable remodeled/updated home perfect for relaxing after a day of fly fishing the 'blue ribbon' waters of the Missouri River. The home is furnished in Montana fishing decor. New flooring in the kitchen and main bath in 2016.

The master bedroom is furnished with a King size bed and an XL twin bed. The second bedroom features a double bed, an XL twin and an adjoining bathroom. The second full bath is just down the hall. Toiletries are provided.

Enjoy preparing dinner or breakfast in the large, convenient, fully equipped kitchen or grill your dinner on the gas grill on the covered patio, just off the deck. Choose to dine either inside or enjoy your meal at one of the tables on the covered deck overlooking the river. After dark, gather at the pub table and play one of your favorite card games or enjoy a movie on the DVD/TV. The leather sofa/sleeper in the living room can be used for additional sleeping accommodations. The gas fireplace adds ambiance and takes the early morning or evening chill off.

Montana is known for it's outstanding dry fly fishing. With shallow water and thin, narrow islands to fish against, this is the perfect setting for your trout fishing experience. An ideal float is to put in at Craig or Stickney and float to the Rivers Edge Retreat, pull your boat up on the lawn for the night and head out the next day for the Prewitt takeout.

If you are in need of fly fishing lessons or a guided day on the river, please let us know and we can assist you with that aspect of your fly fishing experience.
We have plenty of room for your driftboat.
There are restaurants in the area if you choose to dine out. Cascade (14 miles north on I-15) has a grocery store and gas station. Craig has a great restaurant, Izaaks.
