Golden Stone has a country look and feel. Enjoy the sounds of Rock Creek and the view of the beautiful valley and the Welcome Creek Wilderness. Just a short walk to the creek, return after fishing and spend time relaxing on the covered farmer’s porch. Deer and big horn sheep are often in view.

Follow the path to the Sawmill Creek Fishing Access, just a short stroll. From there, access beautiful runs, pools, and riffles on the Blue Ribbon Trout Stream, Rock Creek. Return to the cabin after fishing or hiking to the comfortable covered porch or enjoy a campfire in the fire pit on the back lawn. Or play horseshoes, whiffle ball or bocce on the spacious lawn.

Winter is a magical time on Rock Creek. Clear blue skies (no inversions), frosted trees and winter snow set the stage for cross country skiing or snowshoeing along the river. Return to the cabin and warm up by the cozy fire.The cabin is accessible year round. Located on a county road off the maintained portion of Rock Creek Road, the driveway is plowed (if necessary) all winter long.

Visit a student at the University of Montana and have family time in our cozy cabin instead of the city of Missoula! Or take is a game at the University and return to the cabin for a very comfortable getaway...

About Lisa and Tim Savard

For 22 years, we owned the Cabins at Lopstick in Pittsburg, NH. Hosting guests from all over the world who traveled to northern New Hampshire to fishing, vacation, snowmobile and and hunt. In 2008, we bought a little cabin on Rock Creek. We rented it out until 2013 when we sold Lopstick and moved permanently to Montana to fish, hike and hunt Montana. Of all the places we've fished in the American West, we chose Rock Creek as our home.

Lisa and Tim Savard purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Lisa and Tim Savard chose Clinton

In 2014 when the opportunity arose to purchase the property that we share a driveway with, we made the decision to go back into the cabin rental business and share once again, this incredible area of Montana.

What makes this cabin unique

Golden Stone is an ample sized, four bedroom vacation home with a gas fireplace, lovely covered farmer's porch, large, fully equipped kitchen. Just a short walk to the river's edge and the Sawmill Creek Fishing Access, and you'll be wading in the Blue Ribbon Trout Stream, Rock Creek, fishing for cuts, rainbows, browns, and bull trout. The 360 degree views of the Sapphire Mountains is nothing short of stunning.

Montana Rock Creek Cabin, in Rock Creek Valley. Great Fishing, Views, Hiking!
average rating of 4.9444447 based on 18 reviews

overall the cabin was amazing. A little smaller than I pictured it on line.

  • 5 of 5

We choose this property for our annual family Christmas gathering, we had family from Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Montana and North Carolina and we couldn't have asked for a more amazing setting. The cabin was warm and cozy just what we were looking for. We took advantage of many outdoor activities hiking many trails. I am very grateful for the opportunity to stay at this wonderful home. We will definitely recommend this home to friends and family. Looking forward to our next get away.

Thank you Helen

Beautiful house and location!!

We had the absolute best weekend at this lovely house! The house itself was cozy, but spacious and the views out there were just amazing! We thought many times over the weekend how we'd love to just move there forever! :)

2nd Time

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying here, and we booked for next year before we left. The Rock Creek Valley is one of the most peaceful and beautiful places in Montana, and the Golden Stone is the perfect place to enjoy it. Fishing, hiking, relaxing...... the cabin is well equipped - just bring food, everything else is provided. We were cozy warm and comfortable. Lisa and Tim are great hosts and available if anything is needed. Can’t wait to come back.

Excellent stay near the river.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is exactly as promised, with easy access to the river for fishing. The owners are great and accessible nearby. An added bonus is that the kitchen is fully furnished, the best I have ever seen with a rental unit.

Nothing could be better.

  • 5 of 5

Tim & Lisa are great hosts & the cabin is fantastic. The only thing you'll need to bring is food as the cabin has anything else you'd want from plastic wrap to a corkscrew to spare batteries. This is an A+ experience.

Austin, TX

great location and ample amenities

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is close to great fishing spots (within at most 5 miles of our hot spots). The four bedrooms were sufficient for our group and the two baths have plenty of room, particularly the upstairs bath. The kitchen, as noted by others, is well stocked. Only note for others is the kitchen layout provides for a large bar area for 6 stools but there is not a table and chairs to sit around for meals or playing games. I would normally lower my rating for that lack of feature in a family cabin but the location and reasonable surroundings make up for it. Thank you for aodating a nice family stay.
