The Crazy Mountains, a part of the Rocky Mountains, are one of the most peaceful and natural places on earth. Just on the best spot in this paradise we’ve placed our cabin for guests looking for a very special getaway home. The Crazy Mountain Hideaway Cabin is located in a beautiful mountain valley surrounded by healthy firs and Aspen trees. Only a few minutes away, Amelong Creek provides an ideal location to hang loose and enjoy its cool refreshing water. This untouched natural beauty presents you with an opportunity to experience wildlife as you’ve seldom seen it. Elk and deer roam the valley, often within a few meters from the cabin. The cabin lies at about 6420 ft.
The secluded cabin is nestled about four miles from the original old ranch house of the Hailstone Ranch, one of the oldest and most established cattle ranches in the Yellowstone Country, extending over 11,500 acres. For guests who want a quiet and peaceful dream vacation where they can enjoy the freedom to roam almost limitless expanses of the big-sky country, the cabin provides the ultimate retreat for rest and relaxation. It is a place where individuals who value their privacy can kick back, undisturbed by the all-too-common hectic of other vacationers.
The Crazy Mountain Hideaway Cabin is Montana’s TOP ranch cabin, off the beaten path. A vacation in our comfortable Western Style Cabin will capture your own true spirit. After a couple of days you will be hearing differently. You’ll tune to more tranquil sounds like the quiet rustle of the wind through the trees and the accompanying whisper of wildlife stealing through the undergrowth. Your horizons shift, you see things differently and you are able to view important decisions from a new and clearer perspective.
A vacation in the Crazy Mountain Hideaway Cabin stays in your heart forever. Life can be great, off the beaten path. Catch the good times in life.
Because of the natural mountain roads you need a car with ground clearance and 4-wheel-drive.
Due to the altitude, access to the cabin is limited during the winter time.
PRIVATE ACCESS TO THE BIG TIMER CREEK - ABOUT 2.5 MILES, 5 mi ride away. Private FISHING. For hunters: ask for the trespassing hunting fee.
For smaller groups/couples/solo travelers: look at our second cabin at vrbo. No. 276340
The vacation rentals are owned by Lee and Barbara Langhus. Lee is the president of the Hailstone Ranch, one of the oldest and most established Black Angus Cattle ranches in this area. Barbara manages the vacation rentals. She is a German writer and HR Consultant from Munich, Germany.
Annie’s story from Robert Redford’s film “The Horse Whisperer” inspired us to offer our private cabin to people who want to relax completely. The Hailstone Ranch can be seen in Redford’s film. It is the backdrop scene in which Annie is on her way to Tom Booker’s ranch, where they meet for the first time.
Lying in the Crazy Mountains at a height of 6520 ft., the story how the cabin came into being is quite simple. It was the strong desire of stressed-out individuals seeking an untouched retreat in Montana’s natural wilderness. They wanted to be free and sought a positive counterpoint to their hectic professional lives. The founders reflected on a number of factors when looking for the perfect location for this cabin: • Isolated but easy to reach • A fresh source of water to provide comfort and amenity • Surrounded by strong a healthy trees to preserve a comfortable interior temperature in the heat of the summer • A sunny porch with an unobstructed breathtaking view • The best place for outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking, fishing on private land and only about 2 h away from the Yellowstone River, cross-country skiing and hunting. • Sneak-away days reading and relaxing on the quiet porch outside
The Crazy Mountains – there is really a range in Montana with that name. In about ten miles you leave the paved highway and resume the trip on gravel roads which tell you that you are now entering the real Montana, and leaving another life behind.
After another few miles, you rise to the top of a major foothill and suddenly look out over a panoramic view so breathtaking that Robert Redford decided to include it in his film The Horse Whisperer. From horizon to horizon, nearly all you see is the (Hailstone) ranch. Four miles from the main house and about 2000 feet higher, we round the corner of a woodlot and see our cabin. It is modern and attractive and sits on the side of a mountain valley. In the front is grassland; in the rear is mountain forest. The setting is perfect. Inside, the cabin is well-appointed for our comfort. The single bathroom is small but nicely equipped. The tub has a good shower that provides plenty of hot water quickly. Three small bedrooms are equipped to sleep six people and the beds turned out to be very comfortable, with snuggly duvet bedding for the cool nights that can occur even in mid-summer at this altitude. Except for the small groups of Angus that moved past our cabin on some mornings or evenings, and the many deer that visited, we were quite alone. We loved it.
Our thirty days passed surprisingly quickly. Most days, we elected just to stay at the cabin. We read, hiked and explored a bit, but most often just sat on the pleasant front porch and admired the scenic beauty around us.
I have fished in Montana trout streams for 25 years, but this was the best I ever experienced. I never failed to catch whatever we wanted for dinner and I released many, many more. In the fall the CM Hideaway Cabin is used frequently for hunting. Deer and elk are abundant. In the summer months, it has often been used for weddings and hideaway honeymoons too. For us – it was a place to have a quiet and lengthy wilderness experience we had never had before.
If you wish to consider this place to visit – you must be prepared for a close-to-nature experience utterly unbounded by the need to own a wristwatch. Such an experience is not for everyone, but for those it is- it will be one of the highlights of a lifetime.

The Hideaway Cabin was one of the best vacation experiences I can remember. The cabin is unbelievable quiet, sitting in a beautiful mountain valley, surrounded by the forest at one side with great views to Aspen trees and the Black Butte Hills. It's the perfect getaway for nature's lover with everything you need. The cabin was very clean with unique furniture, a combination of rustic and modern elements. We loved the old wood stove in the living room. Can't wait to come back in order to experience the warm feeling of this lovely home again. Very friendly owners, thanks Barbara and Lee. I highly recommend this cabin if you are looking for something very special.
This cabin is such a special place to stay! We brought our two older children and there was plenty of room for all of us. It is situated on a mountain overlooking the most beautiful meadow of wildflowers and aspen covered stream. We felt we were in a dream! Driving through the ranch, we felt it must be the most beautiful ranch in Montana. Barbara was the sweetest host and we felt like we were family by the time we left. We hope to return every year!
Our family of 4, our 2 horses and "Kid "had a very memorable stay at "The crazy Mountain Hideaway Cabin". We will cherish our stay for the rest of our lives.Barbara & Lee are fantastic hosts of their wonderful little cabin hideaway in the Crazy Mountains.

PS:Sorry it took so long for the feedback. Busy, Busy
This was our 3rd stay in the Crazy Mountain Hideaway Cabin. Although this was a much shorter stay for us, we still had a fantastic time & were very relaxed by the time we left. We enjoyed the new upgrades Lee & Barbara did in the cabin; like the very unique , beautiful new kitchen, the cute little bathroom and the new Cowman Room! We loved all! Managed to get in some hiking & sightseeing. Nelly (Lee & Barbara's Collie) still remembered us & knew we had treats for her. The next trip will most definitely be longer than 5 nights. More than ever, my heart is in Montana!! (specifically the Hideaway Cabin)
All we can say is WOW! and THANKS! Our stay was perfect-the location of both cabins are unbelievably breathtaking and so peaceful! The right place to relax and enjoy life. The furniture is unique, very special and so cozy! The cabins are more like a home. We always love to sit on the deck and watch all the differant types of wildlife. There are great walking trails nearby, private fishing access to the Big Timber Creek with its beautiful waterfall, scenic panoramas everywhere! Barbara and Lee really take a lot of care to provide a welcoming environment! We cannot wait to come back next year!
Halfway through a stressful 10-day work tour through western Montana, we spent a few days decompressing in the Crazy Mountains with Barbara and Lee.
The location was perfection, the cabin comfortable and efficient, and we recharged for the rest of our trip.
If you want to escape the "real world," this is the place to do it!
Don't forget to give Nellie (the collie) a big hug!
