This is a beautiful hand-built log cabin. It is built of large cottonwood logs originating from the banks of the Big Hole river 20 miles from Silver Star. The logs are flattened on two sides with a chainsaw, and dove-tail notches are used on the corners to fit the logs in place. This cabin was hand built by the owner, Chip Ashcraft, who is a custom log cabin builder.
This cabin features a common sleeping area on the second floor with 1 king bed, 2 queen beds, and a single bed.
The cabin is located 400 feet off the county road nestled in a patch of trees, providing a very peaceful and private setting. The closest neighbors are deer and the occasional moose. It is within 5 minutes walking distance of Silver Star fishing access site on the Jefferson river, just downstream from the famous Big Hole, Beaverhead, and Ruby Rivers. It is about an hour's drive to the Madison river. We have private fishing (Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, etc.) in a spring creek on the ranch.
Clair and Doris Everson from Hayden Lake, Idaho, commented: "We came on "Roots" expedition with friends - a success! And we fell in love with the little cabin in the Montana Woods. Thank you for a wonderful quiet time".

About the owner: Montana native Chip Ashcraft of Silver Star, Montana has been building log homes since 1986. He has built private residences from North Carolina to Montana using the traditional scribe fitted method in his building process. Each handcrafted log cabin is created from hand-peeled lodge pole pine or Douglas fir which is then individually scribed, notched, and then fitted into position. Each log home is unique in its construction and detail, unlike milled log homes.
