About the Property
Beautiful country cabin, 2 bedroom plus loft
Ivan Doig, the Nationally awarded author, describes Dupuyer in its earlier day glory magnificently in his autobiographical story This House of Sky. Dupuyer is also the inspiration in his fiction books descriptions and details of English Creek (Dupuyer Creek) and of the community of Gros Ventre.
Perhaps you want to unwind from City life, take time for personal introspection and relaxation, read a good book or breathe plenty of fresh mountain air.
The Cabin is artistically decorated and furnished, including arts and crafts from many Montana artists and artisans. In nearby Dupuyer (about 1/2 mile) is located Dupuyer Cache, the retail outlet for Beaverslide Dry Goods merino wool yarn, a bonanza for knitting and crocheting enthusiasts.
This is a non-smoking household and is also pet free within TheCabin. Please, in respect to others and potential allergies, no smoking or pets inside the Cabin.
Although children may certainly enjoy a wilderness experience, they must be supervised by an adult at all times. The Cabin is comfortable but also rustic and old without modern guidelines or safety features. Dupuyer Creek runs through the property attracting wildlife and fishing opportunities.
Each season in this part of the country is unique, nature and wildlife abound. The Rocky Mountains and riparian areas provide ideal habitats. Large predators such as Grizzly Bears and Mountain Lions have been seen on location. Whitetail and Mule deer are spotted regularly. You may catch a glimpse of bobcat, fox, coyote, skunk, badger, cotton tail rabbits and Jack rabbits, chipmunk, and many more animals.
A multitude of birds migrate through the area. Canadian Geese and Sandhill Cranes have been seen nesting. Raptors (Bald and Golden Eagles and a variety of hawk species) fly overhead in the Big Montana Sky. Many smaller birds from Meadowlark to Mountain Bluebird to Chickadee and hummingbirds can be spotted regularly.

- The Cabin is Away From it All in a way most people in the world have not experienced. It is located in the foothills of the Rockies where the rolling prairies of Montana meet the the mountains. Cattle and rolling hay meadows, expansive wheat and barley fields abound allow for a unique combination of agriculture and wildlife habitat....moreless

The Cabin is located just about an hour's drive south of Glacier National Park along the East Front of the Rocky Mountains. The area is quiet and sparsely populated. A small retail store and bar/cafe are located nearby in Dupuyer. Full range of services, such as fuel purchase (gasoline and diesel), restaurant and dining choices range from 22 to 35 miles away in the following communities: Valier, Conrad and Choteau.
Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: We (Robert and Ali Newkirk) obtained this old hand-hewned log cabin that was about to be destroyed and spent about four years relocating the old house to its current site, restoring the structure and artistically preserving it. Ali grew up in this area and spent time working in California where she and Robert met and married. Robert loved the Montana open spaces and friendly people. In 2005, we relocated permanently to Dupuyer.
Why the Owner Chose Dupuyer, Mt, USA:
What started out as a simple project of 'saving an historic element' of our community became quite an artistic delight. The setting is beautiful and so is the Cabin itself. Our friend recommended the VRBO site because he has been so pleased with the result and enjoyed meeting the people who have traveled to stay in his home. We determined this may be a way to share the beauty of this country and the Cabin.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This Cabin is a quiet spot for retreat and reflection, photography or artistic inspiration. It could be a base for visiting friends and relatives in the area, exploring neighboring communities (such as Choteau, Bynum, Pendroy, Conrad, Valier Browning, Heart Butte)and/or wilderness areas. We are in Montana's Russell Country, not far from Boone and Crockett/Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Ranch, Bob Marshall Wilderness, Glacier National Park, to name just a few.
