Just a couple of miles from the Custer National Forest where you can hike and fish and take in scenic drives.

Running mountain stream surrounds the property with several small waterfalls perfect for wading. It has been proven that the mere sound of water can lower your pulse rate or blood pressure. Enjoy the small Trout Pond and a meadow area complete with hammock hung between two of the huge old Aspen trees. Groves of mature Aspens provide colorful landscape on one edge of the long property - while the opposite end is forested with many varieties of very old, tall trees. One area of the property offers easy hiking up a steep hill, perfect for family jaunts.

The immediate area around cabins is grassed/manicured with pine and blue spruce trees providing privacy on one side while the mountains provide beauty on the opposite side.

Dozens of native chokecherry bushes are all over the property and in September of each year, guests are invited to pick buckets of the regional berries and create a jelly or syrup to remember their Montana mountain vacation months later.

Bikes of all sizes are available on the property and guests can choose to go a short distance to visit the country school in the village of Luther or go a longer distance into the nearby Custer National Forest.

Bunkhouse sleeps two and is available upon prior approval for an additional charge, if your group needs more space.

You can browse books from the wide selections of the owner's family-owned bookstore that are hand-picked for your group, take the provided picnic basket and travel to the nearby Custer National Forest.

A telescope is available, as well as binoculars so the beauty of country life can be more fully enjoyed. The brightest stars you've ever seen against the blackest possible sky make a telescope a real treat.

This is a "'Birders Paradise", as dozens of different species frequent the many feeders on the property and build nests in the numerous birdhouses all over the 3 acres.

About Cheryl Bass

My husband and I moved back to our home state of Montana after living in the corporate life of big cities. We came home to care for elderly parents and to enjoy our grandchildren. The cabin has been the scene of many happy family times for us. And we are glad to be able to share it with families from all over the country, meeting new folks and seeing the joy that this magical place continues to bring to others.

Cheryl Bass purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Cheryl Bass chose Red Lodge

We searched for many years for a place to have respite from care giving and the rigors of daily life. We feel that God 'gifted' us this special place so that we could in turn share it with others; that the peace and tranquility we have enjoyed would also be enjoyed by others who need it.

What makes this cabin unique

We walked into this place which 'magically appeared on the road in front of us' on a Sunday we knew that this was IT. The mountains, the horses all around, the sheep, the wild birds, the pond of jumping fish, the porch swing, the PEACE AND QUIET. We know you will feel it too....

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for a wonderful time at the cabin! It was so much more than we could ever have hoped for! We had planned to go into Red Lodge to visit shops and go to the Nature Center but you had so much for us here that we didn't have to leave! The kids had tons of fun on the boats, watching for birds, identifying flowers, and making homemade ice cream!! Too many things to list!!! We are already planning our next trip!! Thanks again!

Sweet Cabin with magnificent view

  • 5 of 5

If the backdrop of the snow capped Beartooth Mountains is not enough, then the horses and a small donkey walking over the roving hills to drink from the babbling creek in the back yard will warm every heart. This cute cozy cabin has it all and it is meticulously overseen by owner Cheryl Bass. All needs are provided for the guest.

Far beyond a home away from home

Wish our time at this home could have been MUCH longer. Truly a dream property for any family - pond, stream, mountain views..........cozy cabin filled with games and fun, but greatest of all a host that makes you feel like family! Far exceeds wildest expectations. We certainly will try to return again!

Most Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing time while we were here. Waking up to the exceptional views with mountains, horses and a creek all added to the relaxation. Cheryl went out of her way to make us feel welcome and she made sure every detail was covered so we never had to worry about a thing. Loads of activities identified, games, books and magazines made us feel like we were welcome guests in their home. This is the best property we have stayed at in the Red Lodge area!

The location, while remote, is only 10 miles from Red Lodge, 1/4 mile outside the peaceful secluded village of Luther MT, 10 miles from Roscoe MT and it famous Grizzly Bar, 70 miles from Billings, 40 miles away from Yellowstone Park, via the scenic Beartooth Pass and only 3 miles from the Custer National Forest.

The property offers a trout pond...patio area for fire pit...picnic tables...volleyball net....toy box full of outdoor 'toys' including a croquet set...meadow area with hammock hung between two huge aspens...small boat and a canoe for floating the pond...wide array of fishing poles and tackle.

Plenty of parking right on the property. Nearest neighbors are not within sight

Wildlife sightings on the property include: deer, moose, Mountain Lion, rabbits, huge Hares, Raccoons, gray fox, skunk, eagles, Sandhill cranes, ducks, wild turkeys, owls, coyote, bald eagles, Canadian Geese, Ring-necked Pheasants, and dozens of varieties of wild birds.

Chokecherry bushes are in great abundance all over the property, and in the Fall we invite guests to pick all they want and take home a native Montana berry to make jelly or syrup and remember with fondness their time at Canyon Creek Cottages.

Here is where there is spectacular and unspoiled nature, vibrant and charming small towns nearby, and breathtaking experiences by day coupled with relaxing hospitality at night. This place is what MONTANA is all about.
