Property includes main cabin, bunkhouse, Horse barn, and Corral in a beautiful setting below the majestic Bear tooth Mountain, outside of Red Lodge, only a few hours drive from Yellowstone Park - outside the little village of Luther. 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. Other activities include: Croquet, tetherball, basketball, Volleyball over the net, metal detecting, panning for gold in the on-site stream. Canoe, boat, and Paddleboat are on site for your use on the pond.
New for 2016: Geocaching on the immediate area around the property!
Cabins are authentic log cabins, and fully furnished including linens, dishes, and basic necessities in the refrigerator. It's like being at home, just AWAY from your own!! Main cabin sleeps six, and entertains all !
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. Or stay in the cabin and make home-made ice cream with the old-fashioned crank style maker also provided. Make home-made bread with the bread maker or cook up a pot of 'sumpthin yummy' in the crockpot.
If creative talents beckon, there is a Karaoke machine with a a stack of CD's to challenge even the youngest voices. And, a keyboard for those who want to tickle the keys for a group sing-along. New this year is a guitar for your enjoyment.
If the weather outdoors is unco-operative, the children can entertain themselves with the decorated tepee perfect for playtime's or sleeping inside. Also available is an indoor tent/tunnel for the times when outdoor play isn't possible.
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.
The fire pit behind the cabin and beside the stream - makes for group gatherings under the stars with the babbling brook sounds to soothe the soul and prepare you for superb sleep.
The steamer trunk in the living room is full of board games, a keyboard, a guitar, and other entertaining items. Dozens of movies too are just a few of the many reasons this cabin getaway will make you feel like you want to stay forever, and come back often!
This property is 'owner-managed'. Pride in ownership shines through and through. You will feel the owner's JOY in sharing it with you! Owner does not reside on the property so, as guests, you have the 3 acres to yourselves during your stay.

Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose Red Lodge, Montana, United States of America:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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....
