About the property

Barton Gulch Cabins are located up Baron Gulch, only minutes from the popular and well known Ruby River in Montana. The estate has a lovely main home and a smaller sleeping cabin. The sleeping cabin is available for an additional fee. The cabins are nestled in the Gravelly Mountains East of the Ruby Reservoir. This well maintained newer 3 level well home is perfect for a family gathering or reunion or a group of folks looking for a little privacy and charm, in the heart of the great outdoors.

BEDROOMS AND BATHS: There are two bedrooms on the main floor, one with two twin beds, and one with a full size bed and a full bath. The upstairs has a queen size bed and balcony, private full bath, as well as a reading nook, with great views of the Gravelly Range Mountains. The lower level is outfitted with a large flatscreen television, including satellite service, a queen size sofa sleeper, and comfortable living room area to relax in.


The kitchen is fully equipped with quality appliances, serving ware and linens. The open floor plan makes the house perfect for entertaining, with added seating at the bar or a place to banter with the cook. The dining area will easily seat of seating inside and out. The open, provides wonderful views and light in the kitchen/dining and living area thanks to the beautiful full length windows. The living area is quite comfortable, with lovely western furnishing and a gorgeous rock fireplace.


The house has a wrap around deck with plenty of furnishings for a large outdoor get together. The grounds are well kept with mature native landscaping. There's a charming little path across the foot bridge and Barton Gulch Creek, that leads to the two level sleeping cabin. Barton Gulch Creek is teaming with beautiful little brook trout, (catch and release only, please!)

Both cabins are equipped with a gas barbecue.


Available for a small added fee, Little Barton, located on the South side of creek, is tucked in the trees for added privacy. The cabin is equipped with an antique cooking stove, for heat or cooking. There's a queen bed in the loft, a full bed and 2 twins on the main floor, sleeping 6 additional guests.


Calling all fly fishermen! The Ruby River, loved by fishermen, is only minutes away. Other nearby rivers include the Big Hole, Beaverhead, Madison and Jefferson Rivers. Nearby BLM and National Forest roads provide a perfect location for ATV use. Hunting, skiing, hiking or horseback riding, are all available activities in the area.

Ruby Reservoir

The cabin is located only minutes away from the Ruby Reservoir and Ruby River, known for great fly fishing. Other rivers in the area include the Beaverhead, Big Hole, Madison, and Jefferson. The area is also known for excellent big game hunting, especially elk and deer. Virginia City and Nevada City are an easy 20 miles away and offer a wonderful step back in time to when the state of Montana was bustling with early prospectors. Live theatre is a favorite in the summer months for locals and tourists alike. Horse drawn wagon tours are also a favorite for the young and old.
