The Slack Home is an 1800's original homestead located in the heart of the Bitterroot Valley near the historic community of Corvallis. The home is surrounded by 880 acres of agricultural farm land and river bottom that comprise the main property of Teller Wildlife Refuge, a private wildlife refuge and conservation organization. Get ready to see all kinds of wildlife and birds in their native habitat!
The Home has just completed a major renovation and the home has never looked better! Now is the time to visit this unique home and experience the tranquil beauty of this one of a kind home in a truly unique setting.
The main level features a master bedroom with a queen bed and private full bath. A second half bathroom is also located on the main level. The living room and dining area are also located on this level the area features a large wood fireplace to provide additional warmth and ambiance while you and your group gather to dine or just to enjoy each others company. A fully equipped kitchen with modern conveniences and a full laundry room complete the main level amenities.
The upper level boasts 3 bedrooms, each equipped with two twin beds, a full bathroom and another ½ bathroom. The high ceilings, antique sewing machine, unique wood floors and historic banister will remind you of days gone by when settlers first came to this part of Montana over 100 years ago.
One of the favorite features of the home is the giant screened porch that wraps two sides of the main level. This area is a gathering place for families and friends to relax and take in the views of Teller Wildlife Refuge property and the majestic Bitterroot and Sapphire mountain ranges. A second screened porch is accessible from the kitchen and provides another terrific spot to gather and enjoy the beauty of the area.
The home is located on a huge parcel of land along with the Slack Barn, and offers large grassy areas, a horseshoe pit, a volleyball net, and giant shade trees all summer long.
The home is just minutes from the famed Bitterroot River, with a boat launch and fishing access for those of you that are looking to recreate or catch a few of our trout on a world class fishery.
The Slack Home is one of two historic homes located within a short walk of each other on Teller Wildlife Refuge property, so if you are looking to accommodate groups up to 14 in one area, then this is the place for you.

My husband and I held our early September wedding in the lawn of the Slack Home and our reception in the Slack Barn.
Sherrie and the rest of the Bitterroot Cabins staff were very kind and helpful. They were able to promptly answer all of my many questions.
The home was beautiful- a perfect backdrop for our photos. I really enjoyed the large upstairs bathroom where my bridesmaids and I prepared on the day. We had hoped to be able to have our guests relax on the nice enclosed porch of the deck (with great furniture!) but it was a little too cold that night.
As for the barn, we knew what we were getting and that was a very rustic location. If you need a dance-floor for your event- remember to make sure you have one reserved! We had to get one last-minute the day before the wedding. We really appreciated the cost-savings of the included tables and chairs, but some of them were pretty unusable so I would plan to rent a few extra.
The best part of the slack home was definitely the surrounding scenery. There had been a fire nearby before our wedding and instead of negatively effecting our wedding, it really made for beautiful photos! The backdrop was just breathtaking, with the sun setting in an orange sky behind blue mountains with a smokey mist hanging low in the valleys.
