Black Mountain Lodge is ideal for extended families, reunions and retreats. Enjoy log cabin comfort and rustic elegance in the privacy of your own mountain meadow (50 secluded acres near Helena, Montana, surrounded by National Forest). The spacious Main Lodge with its sleeping porch and four private sleeping cabins easily accommodate up to twelve guests. A gurgling mountain stream winds its way between the Lodge and cabins lulling you to sleep at night.
During the day take in the panoramic view from the large screened porch. Or hike miles of spectacular trails right from the front door. Guided horse riding trips are also available onsite. Wildlife abounds in our mountain meadow and you will spot animals large and small--moose, deer, elk, coyotes, even bear--from both the porch and trail.
The Main Lodge sleeping porch accommodates two twin beds. The four sleeping cabins include a King size bed, a four person bunk house, and two cabins with a full size bed and bunk bed each. A full bathroom is located in the Main Lodge and a multi-user Bath House serves the sleeping cabins.
This historic property was originally a lucrative mining claim during the Gold Rush. The tailings from multiple mining claims can be found in the nearby hills. You might get lucky yourself but don't be tricked by the glittering Fool's Gold that laces the stream! In the early 1900s it became Primrose Farm, a dairy providing fresh milk to nearby Helena. Our family acquired the property in 1941 and we are now heading into our fourth generation as stewards of this remarkable piece of Montana.
Guided horse-riding trips can be arranged from the front door! If you want to explore the surrounding area there is fly fishing and river rafting for the adventurous types and fine western art galleries and historic sites downtown for the more cultural types. We would be happy to point you in the right direction depending on your interests.
