My husband and I have lived in this area for over 20 years. I moved here from Virginia and he is a Montana native. We both love to hike, fish, camp, hunt, ski, etc. We also like the laid-back lifestyle in Montana. It is the perfect place for our two dogs, and we have great neighbors. We love the beautiful mountain views, the river behind us and all of the natural surroundings that make Montana a great place.

Lynn Crawford purchased this cabin in 2008

We built this cabin here because we live here and we love this area. The agricultural surroundings are very peaceful and full of wildlife and songbirds.

Aside from all the beautiful natural surroundings it is the people of this valley that make life enjoyable here. The Shields Valley is still a relatively undeveloped ranching and farming community. The small towns around us; Livingston, Clyde Park and Wilsall still have an authentic western look and feel. They host local events such as; rodeos, branding parties and dances with a real sense of tradition and community.

THIS NEEDS A 10-STAR RATING!!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for one awesome week the last week of April and couldn't have asked for better accommodations, scenery or owners!! The pictures they show don't do it justice, as I probably looked at those pictures 1,000 times or more over the 2-1/2 months after making our reservations until our arrival date, and NEVER would have pictured just how ROOMY this cabin is! Seeing it from the outside it looks small but inside it is a very-roomy 1,600+ square feet, with two master suites on opposite sides of the great room with very nice upgrades throughout. We really enjoyed the gas fireplace, steam shower and deep-jetted jacuzzi tub. Although the owners live 20-30 yards away in their own cabin, the few times we happened upon them were always nothing but pleasant conversations. They were very helpful in suggesting places to eat, hikes to take and even left the local newspaper's page for church services in the area on our windshield Sunday morning after hearing us mention the previous evening about our plans to attend a church. We gained two really neat friends during this vacation, (plus their three Springer Spaniels). After experiencing this cabin in person, and daily walks around their 35 acres, I'm still amazed at what a true 'gem' this is. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS CABIN FOR YOUR NEXT VACATION!!!

NICE STAY IN BEAUTIFUL SETTING

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently stayed for 6 nights in this home and had a wonderful time. The hosts were available, but you still had a sense of privacy. The home itself was very clean and well supplied. The bathrooms were wonderful with the steam shower and jetted tub. The property had a lovely view of the mountains and we saw a variety of wildlife on the property. I would recommend this rental to my friends and felt that it was a very good value for the price.

GREAT FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Thanks Lynn and Brad for renting us you vacation home. We had a wonderful time visiting Yellowstone and the area. Beartooth Highway that you suggested is an absolute must see for anyone visiting the area. Keith and David really enjoyed the fishing on the Shields River. Both of our kids enjoyed the upstairs loft as a play area. It was great to have a place to come home to and relax at the end of a very long sight seeing day.

SHIELDS RIVER CABIN

  • 5 of 5
This is a really beautiful cabin tastefully decorated with lovely comfortable furniture. The kitchen is well stocked and great to cook in. The jacuzzi bath and steam shower are brilliant. There is everything here for a comfortable stay. The porch is a relaxing place to sit and enjoy the ever changing light on the Absaroka mountains that fill the skyline. Brad and Lynn are friendly very hospitable hosts. There is good fishing very close by in the Yellowstone River and also in the Shields River. A little further afield the Paradise Valley provides additional good fishing spots on the Yellowstone. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Shields River Cabin June 19-24 and we absolutely loved it! It is very spacious, the decor is beautiful, the beds are very comfortable and the kitchen and bathrooms are downright luxurious! Lynn was an excellent hostess and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The property is beautiful, and the mountain views are jaw dropping. We went to the rodeo in Wilsall and the Farmers Market in Livingston. We also spent time in Yellowstone. We were truly sad to leave, and are looking forward to coming back again!

Owner's Response: Katie,

Thank you so much for this review. We have had a lot of people mention it to us. My niece, Kendall is out here now, she is 7, and she makes me think of your little girl, Sophia. They would have a ball together. Hope all is well.
