Cabin, 2 bedrooms (1 in Loft), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6 max)
The Grizzly is a newer, but rustic style log cabin with all the comforts of home. The warmth of this two level, loft style cabin is ideal for quiet separation with one bedroom in the loft area and one on the main level. Both bedrooms have a queen bed, the upstairs also has a double bed and a queen futon for extra guests. 6 people max.
If you are interested in a quiet setting in the base of the Blacktail Mountain Range, and next to the Pioneer mountain, a place where 'do it yourself' can be as relaxing or demanding as you make it, in the comfort of a lovely cabin with great views, then this is the place for you.
Goose Down Ranch is located 5 miles from Dillon Montana, 1.5 hours from Bozeman, Idaho Falls, Jackson Hole WY, or 1 hour from Butte, Virginia City or Ennis MT.

Clean, Peaceful Space
Lovely cabin, excellent location, would stay here again.
Very comfortable and accommodating
We had a great stay at the Grizzly cabin
Very comfortable and clean
It is quiet there even though you are not far off the highway
We enjoyed seeing the many deer that frequented the nearby pastures say nothing about the great mountain views!
We would definitely stay here again
We loved this cabin near Dillon, MT! Clean, quaint and such a beautiful area. Dan and Shannon were so accommodating. We highly recommend it. Near town yet in the country and close to Bannack, Virginia City, etc.
Cozy and comfortable!
Our stay at the Goose Down Ranch was perfect! Thank you Dan, Shannon and Cloe for sharing your slice of heaven with us. The cabin was very well appointed with everything we needed to enjoy a weekend getaway in Dillon. The views are amazing. If you don't mind being a couple miles outside of town in exchange for peace, quiet and views that last for miles, this is the place for you!
This place is awesome!!
We (the wife and I and 3 kids) needed a place to stay for nearly 3 weeks in Dillon, and didn't want to be stuck in a hotel. Goose Down Ranch was the right answer! Very clean and comfortable. I was concerned going in whether the beds would be comfortable, and they were great. No complaints at all. All the amenities were just right, and the views surrounding the cabin were just plain incredible. The owners were so wonderful to work with as well. You can't go wrong staying here!!
Dillon is the home to many activities for the outdoor adventure seeker! If you prefer to remain indoors, the views can't be beat! Just let us know if you need suggestions for the many activities in our area and we will be happy to point you in the right direction!
