About the Property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Experience Ranch Life In the West!
Have you ever wanted to stay in a historic cabin on a ranch in Montana? Well then this is your place. We raise American Quarter Horses, and generally have at least one new foal every summer. Last summer our cabin guests were fortunate enough to witness the birth! The ranch is also home to chickens, pigs, cows, dogs, and cats. Have farm fresh eggs delivered to you upon request- our sons charge $5/dozen and offer free delivery.

Enjoy horseback riding in the mountains, farm eggs for breakfast, watching the pigs wallow in the mud, watching wranglers bring the horses in from the fields, watching calves play while their mothers graze, watching a Ferrier put shoes on a horse, seeing the newborn foals- these are a few of the many of the activities that go on here on a daily basis!

The Stermitz Ranch History
Rob's great grandfather, Joseph, was born in Slovenia, Austria in 1862 and worked in the coal mines from the age of 9. He later immigrated here from Slovenia with his wife and two children in 1892, following the promise of work in coal mines in Montana. When they arrived he found that no work was to be found. Joseph used his last $10 to buy a shotgun so that he might feed his family. While here, a fire broke out in the Cokedale mines. Joe helped put out the fires and was noticed by the mine boss who asked 'who is that good worker?' Someone explained that it was an immigrant who couldn't find work. The mine boss then said 'Put that man to work. Anyone who works that hard for no pay deserves a job. The family, along with the addition of three more children, moved to the ranch in Cinnabar Basin in 1900.

*Horseback rides available on property.

This peaceful cabin is situated between 2 rushing mountain streams and lots of great hiking trails on our private, historic ranch. Enjoy horseback riding on our ranch and whitewater rafting nearby. The cabin is a short drive to the many wonders that Yellowstone National Park has to offer. This cabin really offers the best of both worlds...quiet seclusion in a scenic setting while still being only a short drive to the restaurants and shops of Gardiner. Enjoy animal sitings from the front porch, read in the shade, hike the many trails, enjoy the farm fresh eggs from our free-range chickens, dine indoors or out, identify wildflowers and animal tracks, ride a horse to the top of the mountain, and at the end of the day, let the sounds of rushing water lull you to sleep.
