About the property

Gallatin Riverfront log cabin, 5 bedroom, 4 bath with mountain/ River views

A river really does run through it! The San Marino cabins have a private location on the Gallatin River with views of Porcupine Ridge. Listen to the murmur of the Gallatin River whether you are playing poker, chess, foosball in the loft, reading by a 12 foot River rock fireplace in the living room, taking a hot soak in the 6 person jacuzzi, or waking up from a nap. The cabin's unbeatable location offers a quintessential spot for a large group fly fishing, skiing, hiking, golf, river rafting, or just a girl's weekend away.

About Vivian

We are a California beach family with roots in Wyoming and Texas.

Vivian purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Vivian chose Big Sky

Our family vacationed in this cabin for over a week and fell in love with just about everything Montana offers. We frequent the Colorado, Utah, and California slopes, but nothing compares to Big Sky's powder. Summer vacations in Hawaii and the Carribean now pale in comparison to the peacefulness of fly fishing on the Gallatin and Madison Rivers.

What makes this cabin unique

Riverfront cabin with blue ribbon trout fishing steps outside the backdoor. The minute you walk into the cabin, the river murmur will beckon you.

Majestic views and perfect location

What a beautiful place, we had eight adults and an infant and we were extremely comfortable. The house is in a beautiful location in Big Sky and it's a beautiful drive to Yellowstone or Bozeman. I can't say enough, we definitely want to go back.
