Cabin With Beautiful Mountain Views And Close To The Big Hole River
About Betsy Mahn
This property is owned by John and Betsy and David. We all reside in Minnesota and are Funeral Home Owners in Minnesota and Wisconsin. We also own the funeral home in Anaconda. John and David have been hunting in this area since 1999. We make many visits to Wise River to enjoy our small cabin located just down the road from the property.
Betsy Mahn purchased this Cabin in 2014
Why Betsy Mahn chose Wise River
We have always loved the H Bar J and when our dear friend put it up for sale we bought it from him. We have done complete renovations to the entire bar and café along with many improvements to the property. John and David use to stay at this location when they first came out to hunt in this area, so they both understand the need for these type of cabins in this area.
What makes this Cabin unique
These cabins are unique in that they are completely winterized and easily accessible from the road. Therefore, we are able to keep them open all year around so that hunters and snowmobilers can enjoy the comfort and convenience. The beautiful Mountain Views make for an absolutely perfect setting.

Wise River Paradise
Our stay in Wise River was pleasantly enjoyable and most relaxing. We had wanted to stay there for years and finally did. Our problems were minor as we did not know how to check in and had trouble relaying this information to the property owner. The sunrises and sunsets were spectacular and the food at the nearby café was excellent and well priced. We are already planning on a longer stay in Wise River in 2020!
Quiet area. Nice to unwind
Gal checking us in at bar had no idea we were already reserved & paid. Unit was small but efficient, clean. Missing screen on one window so we couldn't leave ajar for fresh mountain air. Bar has good food but subpar servers.
Sorry that the screen was out in your cabin. Would have liked to have known this when you were there so we could have accommodated you. Thank you for your review
Not what I paid for
The listing says you have a 3 bedroom cabin that sleeps 5. The cabin has 2 seperate sides and I ended up with a 1 bedroom that slept 2. It had no kitchen sink like the pictures showed and they rented out the other side to a seperate group. This other group came back in the middle night and were drunk and very loud yelling about the weed they lost. This is going on as their dog is barking as well. The staff does not communicate st all with you and the laundry is a small laundromat that is shared with the rv park. I went to use it and it was locked, so I was unable to do any wash. I would suggest not staying here if you have a choice. You dont get what the listing shows, but once you book here they have you because you are so far from anything else. Dont book here!
I am so sorry you had this experience. Did you come to the bar and ask to speak to the owner? I was there at the time. It clearly states on VRBO that we have 3 seperate cabins each with a queen bed. With one of the cabins having a seperate living area with a fold out couch. Unfortunately, I can not control who rents the other half of the cabin you were in, but in this case it would have been helpful to be informed so I could have handled it at the time. I will refund part of your money with the exception of the cleaning fee.
We made the most of it!
Unfortunately, the listing for the property we booked was in accurate. We technically booked the smaller cabin, according to the price, but I booked a cabin to hold 2 adults and 3 children. According to the photos of my property, it was two bedroom with a hide a bed, small kitchen and bathroom with shower, laundry available near by. However when checking in, I was given keys to the larger #3 cabin, and when entering the property, I thought there must be a mistake as there was only one bedroom!!! I returned to the bar to clear up the mishap and turns out I am in the largest cabin!! (Which cost more per night then what I booked!) there are actually no cabin with 2 bedrooms and the smaller cabin a bed with no enclosed room or shower, but they are at cabin 3 with laundromat. Basically the photos and listings are quite deceiving and inaccurate, however, with all of the mishap, Donna, who looks after the cabins and bar, is terrific!!! She truly feels like family to me and the best part is, she knows all of my family from years and year ago!!! Which is why we went to Wise River, to spread my fathers ashes. Regardless of all the confusion, we enjoyed our cabin and all of the people near by! Wise River doesn’t have a lot to offer for lodging, so don’t expect much out of this! But overall we enjoyed it and made it work! I suggest to update the photos and give accurate listings of what is offered exactly with what accommodations in each cabin!!!
I am so sorry for the misunderstanding. I will gladly refund your money and change the wording on VRBO.
Big Hole Valley
Didn't quite understand the property use regarding internet and check out. The café was closed when we left so no place to leave the key. The cabin was clean and comfortable and the café and bar were very helpful with good food and drinks. I love this valley.
We stayed in Cabin 3 which is not pictured. It was recently renovated and darling, by the saloon, and a true feeling of "out in the West". Betsy and John were incredible hosts and the bartender and all the locals added to the charm. Thank you!
Thank you for your review of cabin 3, my personal favorite. Safe travels. Nice to meet you.
