About Debbie and John Lumsden
John is an avid outdoorsman from Scotland and Debbie is a native of Montana. We found this little gem nestled between the Tobacco Root and The Highland Mountains and decided to make our home here. This is a new build and our hope is you have a fabulous stay with us while enjoying our beautiful state. We are still doing upgrades on landscaping but don't anticipate it will have an impact your visit.
Debbie and John Lumsden purchased this Cabin in 2008
Why Debbie and John Lumsden chose Silver Star
John's mom ran her own bed and breakfast in the Highlands of Scotland and Debbie's uncle owned the local country store in Silver Star. From the first time we saw this property, we knew it could be a wonderful place to share with our family and friends coming to Montana.
What makes this Cabin unique
The view of the mountains and valley are SPECTACULAR!! We are known as having one of "THE BEST VIEWS" of our valley. Everything is here: the mountains, the river, the light. No one day is every the same. We are also located just 400 yds from the Fly Fishing Access at Silver Star. Because of our location outdoor activities are boundless. It is coming up time for hunting season and The Tobacacoo Root Mountains offer some fo the best hunting in Montana. We are in a perfect location for you. Grouse, pheasant, deer, antelope, elk. Not only have a good hunt but the scenery is fantastic. Come back after a hard day and relax in your cabin with everything you need!!

Home comforts in a river side cabin.
Great place. Extremely clean. All new appliances and furniture. Very comfortable bed. Nice extras usually forgotten in cabins: Properly placed hooks for 4 bathroom towels. Plenty of extras towels and wash cloths. Large bars of soap...not little "hotel soaps." Black out blind in one bedroom (both bedrooms would be nice!). I liked the large dinner plates, large cereal/soup bowls, and large coffee mugs. New pots and pans. Direct TV (I didn't use it much).
My only "want' would be an oven. I cook, so an oven would have been nice. However, most meals you can use the excellent large microwave. There is a toaster oven.
Full cabinet of spices, sugar, coffee, coffee filters, paper towels.
Fantastic views. Quite. Very friendly and accommodating owners! They even gave me Bear Spray when I went up into the mountains to fish. At least once...go off the beaten path and drive into the mountains. Easy 1 hour drive. Gorgeous mountain scenery and trout streams. The Big Hole River is gorgeous canyon fishing.
Overall, my 6 days stay: A+
Thanks so much for staying with us!! We are so glad you enjoyed the cabin and thank you for taking such good care of it!!! We hope that we will see you in the future and greatly appreciate your kind words . All the best,
John and Deb
Great place to stay for fishing
We stayed with John and Deb for a fishing trip. Great access to the Jefferson River right out back of the cabins. A lot of options for fishing within an hour drive. The cabin itself was great with lots of amenities to make for a comfortable stay. Would definitely stay here again.
Thanks Tom, It was a pleasure to meet you and we thank you for staying with us. We hope to see you again in your travels in Montana!! Thank you for your kind words, very much appreciated!!!
All the Best,
John and Deb
Rustic on the outside, luxury inside. !
Debbie and John have thought of everything! What a beautiful cabin! New and absolutely spotless in side and out. Rustic on the outside and comfy, cozy on the inside. Our hosts were so friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable about this beautiful country! They deserve 5 🌟�as well! The mountain view’s are stunning and even though you’re in fly fishing country, you don’t have to be a fisherman to enjoy your stay!
Thank you for such kind words!! We are so very pleased you enjoyed your stay and wish the very best for you in your travels!!It was such s pleasure to meet you both and hope we get the chance to see you again. All the Best, John and Deb
Perfect Fishing Home base
This property was the perfect location for our week long fishing excursion. Easy access to the Jefferson and the Beaverhead and Big Hole are a short drive away.
John and Deb we terrific hosts and made sure we had everything we needed.
Deb greeted us every evening when we returned from fishing to make sure there wasn’t anything we needed and to see how our vacation was going. Check in and check out were a breeze.
Their personal attention to their guests and the home away from home feel they provide is why we will definitely be staying here again on our next trip.
Thank you John and Deb is was such a pleasure meeting you two.
Asa, What a wonderful time we had with you and the guys. It really was great to have you here and we so enjoyed our evening chats!!!!We absolutely loved having you and look forward to your next visit. Glad the fishing was so good for everyone and you enjoyed our little piece of heaven here!!
John and Deb
Glad we came
John and Debbie were fantastic and very hospitable and helpful. The cabin is well designed, quiet and clean. The bed was great and everything was very clean and beyond expectations. John and Debbie bent over backwards to help us with information about where to go and what to do on our stay. Wonderful!!!
Thanks so very much for doing this for us!! It was such a treat for us to have you here. I might have to do your hike to see if I can do it.....Wish for you the very best in your travels and hope one day to see you here again.
All the best,
John and Deb
Great Family Vacation Rental!
We loved everything about The Big Hole Cabin at River Rest. Located within short driving distance to so many things: several local rivers for trout fishing, horseback riding, natural hot springs, back roads for watching deer feed in the alfalfa fields, and other wildlife, quaint little western (& ghost) towns. Our son and his family rented the other cabin (Beaverhead) and it was a perfect set up; with lots of together time seeing Montana, as well as sitting on the front porches together, watching eagles soar, our grandchildren play, and just enjoying the outdoors. The views of mountain ranges on both sides are great. I guess the only negative would be that there is not a good view of the Jefferson River from the cabin; however, it is accessible by a very short walk.
John & Deb are amazing hosts; taking such good care of their guests; and very knowledgeable about the area. We would highly recommend River Rest to anyone visiting Southwest Montana. You won't be disappointed!!!
It was such a treat for us to have everyone here and to hear the laughter of the kids playing!!! Thanks for staying with us and hope we see you again soon and taking the time to do this for us!!!!
Remember Rodeo season is coming up. We have farmers markets, gem hunting, gold panning.
We are a great place to family to stay while you enjoy all the wonders of Southwest Montana!!
