About the property

Modern Cabin with Loft on 1,375-Acre Ranch

The Robinson Ranch Cabin is located on Willow Creek, seven miles east of Corvallis, Montana, in the foothills of the Sapphire Mountains.

Willow Creek flows west out of one of the few canyons on the east side of the Bitterroot Valley, and the cabin sits a few yards from its rushing waters near the western boundary of the 1,375-acre Robinson Ranch. Populated by native cutthroat and Brook trout, Willow Creek is a popular local fishing destination.

The 800-square-foot cabin, built in 2002, is a story and a half, including a loft. Entry through either the front or back door is onto a combined living room, dining area and fully equipped kitchen with a cozy gas fireplace in the front corner.

Large windows across the west side of this room allow a view of the creek bottom, pasture and the rugged mountains of the Bitterroot Range on the west side of the valley. Wild turkeys and deer are often spotted in the pasture.

The rest of the ground floor is occupied by master and guest bedrooms, both equipped with queen beds, and a bathroom. The loft has two twin beds and a large sofa.

There are a variety of activities available on the ranch to cabin guests. Guests can fish the mile and a half of Willow Creek that runs through the ranch as well as the portion of the creek that runs through the Bitterroot National Forest about two miles east of the ranch.

The creek is easily accessible on either foot or vehicle from Willow Creek Road, which winds along the creek back into the national forest.

There are a wide variety of hiking opportunities. From the cabin itself, guests can traipse the ranch on old logging roads and trails, availing themselves of the spectacular views of the Sapphire Mountains to the east and the Bitterroot Range that forms the west side of the valley.

For those more adventurous, the mountain lakes in the Sapphire Mountains east of the ranch that feed Willow Creek -- Gleason Lake, Willow Lake and Burnt Fork Lake -- are doable day hikes. Bring along your fishing rod to catch the plump Rainbow and cutthroat trout that inhabit the lakes, and bring your camera to capture the spectacular mountain views, including the craggy Palisade Mountain.

The Bitterroot Range on the west side of the valley has hiking trails up every canyon with easy access on good roads to each trailhead. Deer, elk, wild turkeys and mountain goats are some of the wildlife that can be spotted in the area.

For those interested in what's available in town, Corvallis is seven miles to the west down Willow Creek Road, and Hamilton, the county seat of Ravalli County, is a 15-minute drive away. Both have gas, groceries and homey, local restaurants. In addition, Hamilton has two microbreweries, several coffee houses and a thriving downtown area with many shops. Missoula, home to the University of Montana, is an hour's drive to the north.

If you are interested in a quiet setting in the foothills of the mountains, 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.

About The Robinson Ranch Cabin

We came from Chicago - city slickers - to raise our kids in the west. We ran the property as a ranch for many years, raising beef cattle, milking cows, riding horses, cutting timber and raising a garden we harvested for our own meals. John Robinson, the ranch owner, continues to live a short distance up road from the cabin in the original ranch house, and two of his children have built homes and reside on the ranch as well, a testament to the allure and magic of this special place we hope to be able to share with you.

The Robinson Ranch Cabin purchased this cabin in 1967

Why The Robinson Ranch Cabin chose Corvallis

We chose this property to raise our kids and experience the outdoors as a family. We accomplished that and the tradition has carried on with our grandkids. Willow Creek runs through the ranch and we are located next to U.S. Forest Service property as well as 2,000-acre parcel of state land that is managed as elk habitat. Nearby Forest Service trails provide hiking and fishing opportunities at high mountain lakes. You can also relax on the deck and listen to the sound of Willow Creek as it runs by. If you are looking for outdoor adventure or just want to enjoy the comfort of the cabin, this is the place for you.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin is located in a mountain setting on an 1,375-acre ranch. It offers a secluded, quiet setting. If you enjoy the mountains, whether viewing them from the comfort of the cabin or getting out in them, you should enjoy your stay here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay at your comfy cabin. Everything about it was great - comfortable beds, great deck to enjoy the evenings and all the comforts of home. Hiking in the Bitterroots was awesome; could not have asked for better weather. Como Lake beach was great too - cold/crisp water LOL! I recommend the fish tacos at the Bitterroot Brew Pub - best I've ever had ... and the beer is good too! Hopefully we'll see you again, it was an awesome stay.

Where do I start? The views from and on the way to the cabin are amazing. It is a little off the beaten path, but it is still very close to town (10 min.). I went to sleep to the sound of rushing water from the creek below. My girls went out on the deck to play their viola and cello most mornings. There is internet enough for texting, but not much else, so it was very restful (No TV - Yay!). Even though the square footage is small, the cabin is open and light, partly because of the high ceilings in the livingroom and kitchen/dining area. The cabin is very well laid out and very comfortable. The kitchen has anything you might need. The air condition cools things off within minutes. My girls especially enjoyed the neighbor next door - a beautiful horse called 'Inde'. Owners are very helpful and responsive to all your needs. One of the highlights was when a horseback riding couple brought horses right to the door, and my three children went riding out on the ranch property at sunset (Owners can supply information about how you can contact them - very reasonable rates.). If you enjoy the outdoors and marvelous views of the mountains, but aren't necessarily fond of sleeping in tents or trailers, this is your dream cabin. Close to golf courses, shops, hiking, fishing, and many of the other wonderful things Montana has to offer. We're definitely returning!

A very beautiful and quiet setting. The cabin is well appointed and beds comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Would certainly consider visiting again. Near enough to town while being fully in the mountains. Internet is very slow and spotty and no satellite TV. Cellular connection is functional but weak. ITS. A CABIN! So that is fine. If you need instant connectivity then go to Denver downtown. This is a wonderful retreat from the hectic world.
