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!
