About the Property

8 Bedroom, 4 bath, sleeps 15 adults in 9 beds, very private w/ mountain views

The 8 bedroom lodge is located 8 miles south of Showdown Ski Area with downhill and cross-country skiing + 300 miles of snowmobile trails. Walk out the door to Elk & mule deer hunting. You can also walk from lodge to a small trout stream or drive a short distance to major streams, rivers, and Newland Creek Reservoir for great rainbow and brown trout fishing. Local fishing guides are available on a neighboring 100,000 acre working cattle ranch with over 30 miles of fishable rivers and streams on the property (names and phone numbers can be provided). Or you can be guided on major nearby rivers like the Smith, Missouri, Yellowstone, Madison, Gallatin, etc. for either 1/2 or full day fishing trips. Three major reservoirs on the Missouri River (including Canyon Ferry Reservoir which is just 90 minutes away) has some of the best walleye fishing in the US plus rainbow and brown trout fishing as well.

The forest around the lodge is also great for 4-wheeling, mountain biking, hiking, and bird/wild game watching if you choose. Star-gazing is also incredible as the lodge is located at 6200 feet above sea level and there is NO light pollution so the stars look like you have never seen before. Just 20 minutes away to the north is Memorial Falls which is only a short hike from the parking lot off HWY 89. A must to do is soak in the mineral hot springs pools in White Sulphur Springs just 1/2 hour away.


The lodge is a great place for family reunions with plenty of space in the main lodge room to spread out. A piano and foosball table are also available or you can choose from the many board games, or pick a book from the large library. There is a large screen satellite TV or pick from over 100 DVD/VHS movies provided for your use plus 2 additional TVs are in the bedrooms. We have also had people use the lodge for a small wedding/wedding reception, 50th wedding anniversary, quilting, scrap-booking, etc. It is a great place to use as a base location for your vacation to tour both Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks which are 2.5 to 3 hours away.

The lodge has 1 king bed in the master bedroom w/private bath, walk-in closet and love seat. In addition there are 5 queen private bedrooms and 3 twin beds that all share 3 bathrooms. The main lodge room has fully stocked gourmet kitchen with 3 dining room tables that seat up to 8 people each, 2 gas grills are available for all your BBQ needs, plus all linens/towels are provided, just bring groceries. Wood burning stove is available for your use with split provided wood in the over-sized double garage. Paper products and many spices are available in the cupboard for your use.

Outside in the back yard is a fire pit that you can build a fire to sit around to enjoy the cool evenings and tell your favorite stories or roast smores for desert. Some outside lawn furniture is also available for your use and enjoyment as well. Grocery delivery from a local store in White Sulphur Springs is also available, just request the phone number.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Kelly and Dave are Industrial Hygienists and own/operate DS Environmental Consulting, Inc. in Lakewood, Colorado for the past 10 years performing all types of sampling for environmental hazards like asbestos, mold, lead-based paint, radon, etc. They currently have 12 employees and live in Morrison, Colorado. Kelly enjoys quilting, painting and reading in her spare time while Dave enjoys all types of hunting and fishing. We both love to travel and spend most of their vacation time exploring new parts of the world.

Why the Owner Chose White Sulphur Springs, MT, USA:
We purchased this property to live in it full time as you can't find property like this any more with hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, hiking, etc. out your door in the middle of 2 million acres of National Forest. You can't imagine how peaceful and quite it is here and you definitely won't want to leave and go back to the hustle and bustle of city life and the traffic and noise, etc. We packed up our clothes and left it for a great job offer in Colorado but said we can't sell it because we would never find another piece of property like it again, so we turned it into a vacation home 14 years ago.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We feature 9 total beds with 1 king, 5 queens, and 3 twin beds with extra blow-up beds for kids in 8 private bedrooms with 4 bathrooms. There is a very large common area (the kitchen, living room and dining room are all together) for your group to enjoy all getting together with 3 dining tables and plenty of couches for everyone to relax. You can sit in front of the large picture windows that face south and enjoy the 300 days of sunshine and curl up with a good book. Our guests have used our home for weddings, 50th wedding anniversaries, large family reunions, a base camp for elk and deer hunting and/or trout fishing, hiking/mountain biking, and a home base to travel and explore Yellowstone and Glacier National parks and other great sights in west central Montana. If you like to ski, there is both downhill and cross-country skiing just 10 minutes away or you can enjoy 300 miles of trails for snowmobiling right out the door.
