HISTORIC RIVERSIDE SALOON CONVERTED TO VACATION HOME

Troy Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This fabulous 'Scandinavian-Country' home was once a notorious Yaak River Valley bar called Hell Roaring Saloon. Lovingly converted to a year-round family residence, it features an IKEA kitchen, a fully remodeled bathroom with tub and shower, river view dry bar, a library and a large master bedroom featuring a queen-sized bed with an unobstructed view of the Tamarack forested mountain across the river. There is a sleeper sofa (queen sized) in the main living area for a second couple.

In addition, there is a separate log cabin (perfect for kids or a second couple seeking their own privacy) with one bedroom and a sleeping loft, full shower, small kitchen and it's own satellite TV. The cabin has two double beds, two twin beds and a sleeper hide-a-bed.

All of this on an open and SUNNY five-acre plot with a whopping 1,200 feet of private river front that wraps around the main building and flows within 15 feet of the full-view bar and front windows. Walk your kayak or fly rod to the river and be on the water in 30 seconds.

This is a 'get away from it all' vacation opportunity. Leave your cell phone at home (they don't work in the valley.) The trail head to Mt. Baldy is less than 100 yards from your front door. The deer and moose viewing - from your seat at the bar if you so choose - is incredible and your backyard is the Kootenai National Forest and the beautiful Yaak River.

Hunker down in your own piece of paradise, or use the place as a base camp for exploring the valley's multitude of gated forest service roads, hiking trails, secluded lakes and water falls. Once feted as 'the most remote valley in the lower forty-eight' The Yaak offers a truly unique vacation opportunity.

Don't let its name fool you ... the Hell Roaring property is quiet, beautiful and relaxing. The ultimate wilderness vacation for friends and family.

About The Owner

We are native Washingtonians who discovered the Yaak on a fly fishing trip to the northwest Montana. One day in the valley was all it took to know that we wanted to own property and spend time in this magical place. We bought the vacant Hell Roaring Saloon three days later and still marvel at our good fortune.

The Owner purchased this lodge in 1998

Why The Owner chose Troy

'The Yaak' is a remote wilderness valley in the two million acre Kootenai National Forest. Less than 10% of its land mass is privately owned. Our place - and river front - is bordered on the west and north by national forest. It's private, accessible and has an incredible - and notorious - historical connection to the valley.

What makes this lodge unique

The solitude and abundance of wildlife make staying in The Yaak a truly unique experience. Besides the beautiful surroundings, we see moose, deer, beaver, otters, eagles, osprey and owls...not to mention a wide variety of smaller - but no less enjoyable - flora and fauna

Superb accommodation

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful stay at the former Hell Roaring Saloon. This place has been beautifully renovated to create a first rate living space while retaining the rustic feel of its former function. The log cabin has beds for 6 and a bathroom and is very comfy. If you like to fly fish, read books or hike, this place is for you. Our group included all three types so we were very happy and felt we could have spent much longer than the one week we were there. The kitchen is better stocked than ours at home. Some VRBOs can feel quite sterile. However, we particularly liked the feel of this place - there are very tasteful decorations and items typically found in a home that make it more comfortable. Not indicated in the listing is a dining table that comfortably fits 8 and a large table on the porch that seats 6. We used the porch table for setting up fly rods. Fishing on the Yaak is about 50 feet from the porch. The confluence of the Yaak with the Kootenai River is 24 miles away. The owners are delightful people and were great to work with.

A peaceful, bucolic getaway

  • 5 of 5
This place is delightful - perfect for a family get-away - for someone who needs to decompress - for couples who need to get away from all the distractions to reconnect - and for someone who wants to be right in the middle of nature. We saw many deer, a moose mom and its calf, a yearling moose and a black bear - all on the opposite riverbank. Lots of fish in the river, but the river was flowing good and not many were biting. But mostly this place is THE place to relax, slow down, and enjoy some peace and quiet.

Kitchen has everything you need - all the amenities are there in abundance - and no cellphone coverage - HOORAY!

Get groceries before you arrive!

Highly recommend you stay here!

What a GREAT place to stay

  • 5 of 5
What a diamond in the rough. Had to shuffle plans when a rental on Flathead Lake had to be split over a weekend. I could not have landed on my feet any better. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Hell Roaring Cabin. Discovered a whole new part of Montana I had not even imagined or knew anything about. Had my concerns about a cabin that had been a saloon, but let me tell you, it was a great surprise. The owners have done an excellent job of turning this once saloon into a residence to remember. Everything is nice and clean and decorated (in my eyes) very tastefully and appropriately. Well Done. There really is no reason to ever leave the cabin. Internet, satellite TV, books galore and views out the many windows you can only hope for. Woke up the first morning to a bull moose grazing across the Yaak. Deer played in the same area every day I was there. Walked out of the cabin and fished in the Yaak. Will come back to the area again and again and stay at hell roaring if available. The Kootenai Valley was a very good surprise. The Hell Roaring Cabin was as well. Thank you for a most memorable stay....

great out door space

  • 2 of 5
To much personal items(personal care products, food, Clothing) etc. located at rental... No place for my clothing had to live out of suitcases for the whole vacation. Mattress was hard as a brick, had to sleep on the couch. Had a feeling of invading someones private space. Only reason the review was not a poor was the wildlife and the saloon remodel. Remove the personal items and get a comfortable bed and it would be a comfortable place to stay.

Owner's Response: Dear Mari,
Received your review and want to thank you for your input. In two years of VRBO renting we have never had a negative review response. It is true that our rental has a personal feel to it, as we continue to use the home for our own family on a regular basis. Based on your feedback, we will adjust the text on our site to inform potential guests of the homey atmosphere and will try to adjust the "visiting relatives" ambiance that we have always tried to present. We were surprised about your "lack of storage" comments, as we installed an empty bedroom dresser and emptied another closet-dresser before starting the program. You are correct about the bed (a bad back in the family needs ultra-firm) and - heeding your advice - will make an adjustment during the off-season. We are very sorry that your stay wasn't perfect. We love the Yaak AND the Hell Roaring Saloon and we want all of our guests to love it as much as we do!
Sincerely,
Rob

Wild and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5
The Yaak Valley Lodge was perfect for our needs! We were very comfortable and of course the October weather cooperated perfectly. The lodge is spacious, clean and very well equipped. The property is beautiful and nicely situated on a bend of the Yaak River, which is in constant view via the bank of windows along three sides of the house. The adjacent cabin was a bonus and comfortably accommodated 4 additional members of our family. We wanted for nothing but more vacation days there! Don't hesitate to book a reservation here!
