About Deborah

Relocating to Montana in 1990 has been a grand adventure - recreating in magical places with no crowds, skiing exquisite powder with no waiting in lines, running the best whitewater in America, these are a few of our favorite things about the Bitterroot Valley. Join us in discovering how good life can be...

Deborah purchased this lodge in 1990

Why Deborah chose Bitterroot Valley

Just minutes from trails, the river, groceries and spectacular scenery at every turn.

What makes this lodge unique

Did we mention the views? Yes, and the wildlife in the yard, the sunsets, sunrises, full moon skiing, and more. More of what life should be - we have years of shared memories with our families and guests from around the world that have visited our guest cabins over the last 20 years.

Flying R Ranch and Camp Car-Sap

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 9 ranging in age from four years old to late sixties! We had no idea what to expect, only reading what was online... our anticipation was met with instant relief and glee as we all found a wonderful ranch house to spend the week. An almost 360 degree majestic view of Trappers Peak on the west and flowing agrarian and mountain views to the east. The accommodations were exactly what we needed, from a kitchen worthy of cooks & cocktail makers to porches that allowed us to enjoy the Montana we've come to love, from enjoying our morning coffee or watching the wild life parade by. Hot Tub, BBQ, pool table, netting to play volley ball and badminton... front and back yard allowed for more than enough space for kids and adults to come together and play.

The location was key for our fishermen and women, as well as a shooting range in the next town. Breweries and restaurants were within a half hour’s drive. Lake Como was a fifteen minute drive away. Enough bedrooms and clean bathrooms… would we do it again? In a heartbeat.

Thank you Flying R Ranch for providing a wonderful spot to allow us to celebrate our first annual family camping outing. You answered our questions promptly, professionally and were the perfect hosts.

Continued Success!

Our granddaughter's 1st birthday - family get-together.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent, comfortable, with a kitchen big enough for a big family gathering of lots of people who like to cook together. Plus a great BBQ grill. Very comfortably accommodated 2 couples with babies, plus grandma/grandpa. Very private, very quiet, very restful. Lovely decor. The upstairs loft bedroom is amazing - very spacious. We saw nesting birds and elk in the yard. The porches provide lots of extra room for watching sunrise, having a quiet cup of tea, etc. I hope to be a repeat guest.
