"This cabin is very unique in it's features and a quiet place close to Bozeman and Yellowstone Park. It gets you away from the hustle and bustle of crowds and traffic.
That being said, there were a few issues. First of all, let me tell you, there was absolutely no evidence of bats or rodents. Part of the beauty of this cabin is that it is rustic in nature and a true log cabin. The only problem for us was that the top logs were recently sealed and left behind a terrible chemical smell. This lasted for about four days into our stay and made us nauseated and gave us headaches. (I'm highly allergic to chemical smells) There are fans provided and the windows do open, so we were able to have constant air flow, which helped tremendously.
On the VRBO site it listed the cabin as having air conditioning, which is particularly one reason why we chose this one instead of others. In July/August it is very hot in this part of the country during the daytime... it cooled down at night, so it wasn't terrible, just not what we were expecting. I was concerned for my elderly mother who wasn't used to the heat.
Both bedrooms are upstairs. Both bathrooms are downstairs. I must have overlooked that when I booked this cabin. It was awkward for an older person to manage the stairs, at night especially.
The wifi worked wonderfully. The cell phone service was non existent. Again, not necessarily a bad thing.
The hot tub was working great! It was just too hot to use it very much.
One of our plans was to go fishing on the property in the Bear Creek. The creek didn't have much water in it that we saw. Again, it was hot and dry this time of year. The land itself could use some tender loving care. A lot of growth and made the creek not accessible from the cabin. We saw a picnic table down by the creek but the weeds were so overgrown it was impossible to walk down to. You do however, hear the creek babbling in the distance, so there was water somewhere! We just couldn't find it.
It is probably a better place for the other seasons. Great area for a little cooking fire to make s'mores or hot dogs.
The owners, Jim and Marie were great! Communication was sufficient and they are very nice. It was very private and clean.
Thanks for sharing your cabin with us!"
