Lewis and Clark Cabin
Submitted: October 26, 2011
Stayed: July 2011
Located on along the Lewis and Clark trail, this is both an historical site (the cabin was one of the first in the area, complete with bullet holes if you know where to look for) and a wonderful place to stay and relax.
We were particularly delighted with the wild life that we could see right on the property (deers, geese, sand-hill cranes, feasants, rabbits, pelicans, oxpreys and many small birds -- not to mention wild turkeys), including in the yard just across the windows. We also enjoyed the mile or so of the yellowstone river that borders it, which is just great for fly fishing or floating down the river.
The surroundings also offer many opportunities. A small town (Big Timber, about ten miles away) offers many facilities, including a vintage movie theater, and Livingston, Bozeman or Billings are not very far away. For anglers, many tributaries of the Yellowstone offer a variety of sites, and forest trails are nearby (we also took this opportunity to spend a couple of days in the Yellowstone Park).
All in all, a wonderful, relaxing stay in the middle of nature in the wild wild west!
Owner's Response: Another fine review of the varied opportunities that our ranch provides.I am glad they mentioned visiting Yellowstone Park , because it is a beautiful drive down the Paradise Valley into the Park and returning via one a the most outstanding highways in the U.S.--The Beartooth Highway, which goes over a high pass through the mountains into the Park. Many of our clients do this and say the extra driving is worth it to stay at our ranch, where there is lots of privacy, and choice of activities without being surrounded by the crowds around Yellowstone.
