Selected as one of the "100 Most Beautiful Rustic Vacations in North America", real log cabin nestled in a tranquil setting on 3 acres.
Come here to "unplug" in The Last Best Place. We welcome locals and Billings area folks who just want to get away from home for a spell !!! Travelers from farther away will find everything here to be "at home".
Property includes Main cabin, Horse barn, Corral, and bunkhouse in a beautiful setting below the majestic Beartooth Mountains, outside of Red Lodge, only a few hours drive from Yellowstone Park - outside the little village of Luther. Just a couple of miles from the Custer National Forest where you can hike and fish and take in scenic drives.
Running mountain stream surrounds the property with several small waterfalls perfect for wading. It has been proven that the mere sound of water can lower your pulse rate or blood pressure. Pond and a meadow area complete with hammock hung between two of the huge old Aspen trees. Groves of mature Aspens provide colorful landscape on one edge of the long property , while the opposite end is forested with many varieties of very old, tall trees. One area of the property offers easy hiking up a steep hill, perfect for family jaunts. The immediate area around cabin is grassed/manicured with pine and blue spruce trees providing privacy on one side while the mountains provide beauty on the opposite side.
Dozens of native chokecherry bushes are all over the property, and in September of each year, guests are invited to pick buckets of the regional berries and create a jelly or syrup to remember their Montana mountain vacation months later.
Bikes of all sizes are available on the property and guests can choose to go a short distance to visit the country school in the village of Luther or go a longer distance into the nearby Custer National Forest.
Cabin is an authentic log cabin, and fully furnished including linens, dishes, and basic necessities in the refrigerator. It's like being at home....just AWAY from your own!! Cabin sleeps six, and entertains all! Bunkhouse sleeps two and is available upon prior approval, if your group needs more space.
You can browse books from the wide selections of the owner's family-owned bookstore that are hand-picked for your group, take the provided picnic basket and travel to the nearby Custer National Forest, or stay in the cabin and make home-made ice cream with the old-fashioned crank style maker also provided. Make home-made bread with the bread machine or cook up a pot of "sumpthin yummy" in the crockpot. If creative talents beckon, there is a brand new Karaoke machine with a stack of CDs to challenge even the youngest voices. And, a keyboard for those who want to tickle the keys for a group sing-along!
If the weather outdoors is unco-operative, the children can entertain themselves with the decorated tepee perfect for playtimes or sleeping inside. Also available is an indoor tent/tunnel for the times when outdoor play isn't possible.
A telescope & binoculars are in the cabin so the beauty of country life can be more fully enjoyed. The brightest stars you've ever seen against the blackest possible sky make a telescope a real treat.
The firepit behind the cabin and beside the stream - makes for group gatherings under the stars with the babbling brook sounds to soothe the soul and prepare you for superb sleep.
The steamer trunk full of board games, plus the dozens of movies on hand are also just a few of the many reasons this cabin getaway will make you feel like you want to stay forever, and come back often!

Simply amazing! My sister found this gem for us so we could get away to celebrate Father's Day weekend. Cheryl thought of everything and then some! We had the most wonderful time and plan to stay again, hopefully longer next time! The kids thought it was wonderful that they could take the paddle boat out themselves as we watched from the shore. We enjoyed bird watching, relaxing, making ice cream, feeding our new equine friends treats, smores by the fire and some much needed family time. I would give 10 stars, if I could!!
Thank you so much for everything!!

My husband and I stayed at this cozy cabin during the fall season to "get away from it all" and relax. The fall colors in this area are amazing, and we took some outstanding photos of the mountains and valleys surrounding the cabin. The cabin, with its unique rustic furnishings, makes you feel welcome from the moment you arrive! We were there to relax: watching movies, looking through the wonderful collection of books, and just enjoying the "quiet". We were impressed with this clean and tidy cottage, and found that it accomodated all of our needs, and expectations!

I've been to the cabin a few times and love it! It's so quiet and relaxing and they have one thing I love most...water. That pond is just right to float on a have a couple of cocktails. The mountains are gorgeous (perfect backdrop for pictures) and the open porch and patio is great for getting some sun and visiting with friends and loved ones. The view at night is amazing as well...the most beautiful stars against the blackest sky. I love the cabin's decor...so rustic and fun. It has everything you could need and is extremely clean. We went last summer and plan on going again this year as well. Can't wait to get out there and away from the stresses of everyday life and work!

This cabin is so adorable, a delight to visit. My girlfriends and I try to visit every year for a girls weekend get-away! It is nestled among some of the most beautiful mountains in the country, and yet it is close to Red Lodge and Yellowstone National Park.
My stay at the cabin is always the highlight of my summer, and the owner is a wonderful lady and a pleasure to work with!

What a great peaceful place! It offers a taste of the real outdoors of Montana. We've been there several times and every time, we discover something new. Watching the native birds at the feeder, trying your luck at catching a trout in the pond, sitting on the deck watching the sunrise, and just doing nothing. (They had lots of activities to do if you forgot your book.) We used it for a ladies' retreat and had the best time ever. Everything is very clean and the owner is welcoming and accommodating! Truly a taste of the past.

The cabin is spacious, modern, and well kept. We stayed two nights there with my daughter and 2 grandsons. They loved open space to run around and play games and we enjoyed the beautiful scenery and the peaceful atmosphere. The cabin is well stocked with movies to watch or board games to play in the evenings for some wholesome family fun. We had a great time and look forward to spending more time there in the future.
