Incredible Fishing, Hunting and Hiking along the Stillwater River next to the Beartooth Mountains

This is a location like no other! Direct access to the Stillwater River and minutes from hiking trails in the Beartooth Mountains. If you desire tranquility with an incredible panoramic view, then this is the place for you. Enjoy sitting out on the back deck while grilling your favorite foods and scanning the mountain side for a plethora of animals including mountain sheep, deer, elk and more! Just five miles away is the Stillwater Trail, which goes 25 miles over the Beartooth Mountains into Yellowstone Park. Along the way are scores of lakes stocked with fish.

The cabin retreat has been completely remodeled and is a perfect place for a weekend visit or vacation stay.

Great little cabin

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our two nights in this cabin - it was very clean when we arrived, has great amenities, and the property managers were very gracious in ensuring we had a nice stay. Highly recommend if you're coming to the area.

Adorable little cabin in the heart of the Beartooth Mountains!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 were cozy and comfortable in this quaint mountain cabin. Brenda, our hostess, welcomed us in Absorakee and lead us to her cabin. She was super sweet and welcomed us like we were family! Her mom even made us delicious scones which we all devoured. Very sweet of her!

Brenda and the owner of this cabin added an extra sleeping area for our kids which was very comfortable!!!

Limited cell phone service and no TV but we were all content to be off the grid for several days.

This cabin is well stocked with fresh linens, kitchen ware, washer and dryer and coffee! We even brought out the record player and listened to an Eagles and Fleetwood Mack album!

My husband and our kids tried some fly fishing out on the Stillwater River just a short hike away but the river was flowing high and strong so fish weren't too interested.

We traveled pass the mine and to Woodbine campground and trailhead, just a short 10 minutes away. So beautiful!!

Each morning we were welcomed by Meadowlarks singing to us and vibrant Blue Birds visiting. An occasional Mule deer could be seen across the field, even a doe with her baby.

Smells of sage and pine and that fresh mountain air can't be beat in this area.

Overall the owners of this cabin and Brenda went above and beyond to be sure our stay was comfortable, relaxing and memorable. We truly loved our stay here!!!

Great weekend getaway!

We had a great time at the cabin and we were happy we could bring our two pups with us! Brenda and Tom were so nice and the cabin was spotless! We may have to make this an annual trip!
