Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay! If you want to be close to town yet have total privacy, then stay here. Cabin is clean and has all you need. The property is amazing and we often spent our evenings fishing and eating dinner at the pond. We saw deer and elk on the property. We will be returning!

Quiet and Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay on this incredibly beautiful property. The pond is beautiful, full of nice trout. Great hiking, views and completely private. It's minutes to Big Sky and the Gallatin River. The cedar lined interior of the cabin is cozy and perfect for 2 to 4. The owners are very kind, accomodating people, and we'd HIGHLY recommend this authentic place full of history and good memories, on 260 acres! Crazy beautiful.

Snuggly & Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two nights (January); it was so wonderful. It is a small, picturesque cabin. The perfect place to catch up on a book, eat some bison chili and unwind. There's some wildlife meandering now & again - a bonus! You are really off the beaten path and it's so pretty. The bed we slept in (of the two bedrooms) was very comfortable. The kitchen had plenty of cooking utensils and such. It's 10-15min from the Big Sky resort/hotels - so you *are* out in the woods and yet still close to other activities as well. The owner(s) emailed the day before our arrival and asked if she could make any recommendations for activities, restaurants etc. - she was so kind & helpful throughout the entire process.

We'd love to go back in warmer weather to experience the pond etc. as well!

Get some groceries on your way in to Big Sky (grocery stores *in* Big Sky are pricier, get some wine, make some hot cocoa...and snuggle up. AND...f you ever thought of writing - this is a writer's heaven...so write that essay or book ...or blog away!

Small, intimate, snuggly and WONDERFUL

Get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing stay at this cabin. You are literally out in the country and the quiet helps you get away from it all. We sat by the pond and watched the wildlife. We could see two herds of elk across to the south and had a herd right in the back yard. We fished the Gallatin River several times and were close to the west entrance of Yellowstone to make it an easy day trip.

The owners made it very easy to stay in this cabin and all of the essentials were there and more. The pond is where we spent most of our time!

Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 was fortunate enough to spend almost a week in this magnificent place a few years ago and I've looked for it ever since. The solitude and serenity of this property is something I'll never forget. To this day and after seeing some of the country's most beautiful places, our family still recalls this as our favorite vacation spot. We awoke to the sound of the elk, spent beautiful days walking and exploring the property, had lunch by the pond while our girls fed the fish, and experienced total quiet as we watched the sunsets. This place will change your life.
