Overview

Fishtail Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12-16)

4bd/3ba, sleeps 12 in 6 queen sized beds. Room for 4 more on 2 queen sized self inflating air mattresses for an additional fee. Approx. 3,100 sq. ft. situated on a 450 acre ranch. Year-round access great winter stay rates. Provides a farm stay experience. If you like you can help us with the animals, gardening, planting and more.

It is charming, modern and comfortable and ready for a family gathering, wedding, anniversary or a romantic get-away. The house has three levels, with two beds upstairs (one in a private bedroom the other in the loft area), one bedroom on main floor, and two bedrooms in the basement. One of the two basement bedrooms has two queen sized beds.

It has three full bathrooms one on each floor. The bathroom upstairs has a jetted Jacuzzi tub, large enough for two, and glass enclosed shower. The other 2 bathrooms are full sized. Our 11 acre Lake provides great swimming, picnicking, fishing, ice skating, paddling and more.

PLEASE NOTE: A Cottage Home is also available to rent 50 yds away from Log House. Adds two bedrooms, 1 bath and sleeps 4 additional people.

About the Log House/Cabin: The Log House offers incredible view of The Beartooth Mountain Range, and view of a small pond and year round creek from the living room's large cathedral style windows. On the Ranch there is also a private trout lake, about eleven acres in size, and several beaver ponds. All offer trout fishing to guests and is within easy walking distance for all. If river fishing is what you are after the Stillwater River is only 10 minutes drive, Rosebud Creek the same distance and the Yellowstone River is only 20 minutes drive away. Because of the abundance of water and tree cover this section of land draws wildlife of all kinds. Some wildlife can be seen from the living room's windows as they walk past. Open and accessible all year round. Every season is as beautiful as the next.

Views, Fishing and Wildlife: At the Ranch there are outdoor activities like walking, sightseeing, photography, swimming or fishing at the private lake. There is a dock with a picnic table if you want to pack a cooler and spend a good long time soaking up the sun and scenery. The Ranch is a short distance to spectacular hiking trails, mountain biking, downhill skiing, cross country skiing, dog sledding, snowshoeing, white water rafting, kayaking, horseback riding, the famous Beartooth Highway, Absarokee Days, historic Red Lodge and its annual rodeo and mountain man rendezvous, quaint towns with great gift shops in Absarokee and Fishtail, ATV rentals, wagon tours & sleigh rides, Stillwater Art & Wine Festival, or a day trip into Yellowstone National Park. The route to Yellowstone from the Ranch is breathtakingly beautiful, going over the Beartooth Highway to the Top of the World, then through the historic mining town of Cooke City.

Nearby: Yellowstone Park is approximately 2.5 hours drive away. Billings Airport is approximately 1 hour drive. Located equal distance, about 10-15 minute drive to shops, grocery and fuel in Absarokee or Fishtail.

About Lee and Roxanne Dunn

Lee and Roxanne Dunn enjoy sharing the Log House and Cobblestone House with vacationers while living in year-round in another house on the Ranch. Lee and Roxanne grew up in Colorado, and both moved to Montana in the 1990's. The Ranch is now organic certified for pasture and hay, and will be seeking organic certification for cattle in 2012. Please come and visit us, and we'd be glad to tell you all about this special place.

Lee and Roxanne Dunn purchased this cabin in 1989

Why Lee and Roxanne Dunn chose Fishtail

Lee and Roxanne were attracted to this area because of a combination of wide open space and mountain views. The section of land that the Ranch is located has a lake and three creeks which are flowing year-round. This makes it special because it draws all sorts of wildlife.

What makes this cabin unique

This log home is modern and comfortable with all the conveniences of home, yet the backdrop is spectacular, with breathtaking views of the Absaroka Beartooth Mountains and wildlife passing by the cathedral style windows and large viewing deck. Guests can enjoy walks in the aspen grove, cottonwoods, grass fields, and creek bottoms. The ranch is a peaceful and a quiet place to stay and one can have as much solitude as you like. But if it is activities that you desire there are plenty of those on the ranch and nearby. You will get a sense of history when looking at the Cobblestone House, which was built onto over the years, but is the original Hudson homestead house. Take a look inside the nearly 100 year old barn, which is sometimes home to a pair of barn owls. We are equipped with corrals and stalls, so bring your horse and ride on the ranch or one of the many trail heads within short driving distance. Another added benefit, is the peace of mind knowing that the Ranch's owners lives on the ranch in a separate house within walking distance to the Log House, and can assist guests, if needed.

Exceptional and Lovely

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the White Deer Ranch was simply outstanding. We came to the Red Lodge area to ski, but after arriving at the Ranch we were all reluctant to leave the endless opportunity to enjoy nature and explore the outdoors that was right in front of us. The constant presence of wildlife, majestic views and opportunity for solitude and quiet was unbeatable. When there, you must allow time with the owners to learn of the history of White Deer Ranch, and to experience a small taste of everything that is their life. The Log Home was wonderfully rustic with the feel of being built out of love and timber, with just the right amount of modernity to feel luxurious. In short, wherever you are traveling from, making the journey simply to be here and do nothing else is worth every minute! Our family's thanks to Lee and Roxanne for allowing us the opportunity to create found memories in such a phenomenal place!

Great home in a great location with a great value.

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect place for our large group. It had plenty of room for all of us. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen (and entire house) was stocked with everything we needed. We had such a fun time, and this home completely accommodated us.

Couples Weekend Away!!!

  • 5 of 5

We planned a couples weekend away with friends (14 people total) and were fortunate enough to find Roxanne and Lee's log home and cottage. The setting was beautiful, quiet and just far enough "off the beaten path" that you were able to get away from the "rat race", but still close enough to Red Lodge that we were able to do some skiing one of the days. The log house was even nicer than we anticipated and everyone was comfortable and had their own queen bed. The place had everything we needed to make a nice dinner or breakfast. If you need it, Roxanne has likely already thought of it and already has it there. Plently of towels, chairs, tables, plates, utensils, etc for a large group. The living area and kitchen were open and perfect for accomadating our large group. Finally, I must say that Roxanne was so helpful, thoughtful and courteous during the whole process... beginning to end. We hope to make this at least an annual event and many of the couples talked about reserving this when their family and friends come to visit from out of state. All that is to say that we HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone who wants a comfortable place to stay, but needs some space for family or friends. In my opinion, you won't be disappointed.

PS - They left us the best homemade honey... what a treat!

Fishtail Experience

  • 5 of 5

It was an excellent experience. We had a group of 10 people who were invited to a wedding at the Quaking Aspen Ranch and wanted a place to stay. It was an unforgettable time with friends. We fished and paddled around the private lake. The view is magnificent! I would highly recommend this to anyone and are planning another trip to just hang out. The Dunn's were fabulous and very welcoming. You can't beat the price or accommodations!!!!!
