Overview

Cascade House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

Wade the Dearborn in the back yard where no one else fishes in this completely renovated custom house on 10 acres of the former Gary Cooper Ranch. Don’t be surprised to see deer, geese and ducks in the window nudging their way near the deck, especially at the spring waterfall that cascades down the slope. if you are especially quiet and observant, the hundreds of acres of park and ranch across the river also have mountain goats, bears, antelope and even the mountain lion.

Help yourself to the library, watch satellite television or DVD movies, or read from the house’s library.

The public put-in is an 11 hour trip; private access to two shorter put-ins make this a recommended site for many Montana guides. Launch from the back yard and float one half mile down the Dearborn River to the Missouri River or from anywhere on the Dearborn to your own private fishing hole among some of nature’s oldest rock outcroppings.

Only few miles from the Missouri Inn over the bridge where the Untouchables was filmed, enjoy the canyon or visit the Lewis and Clark’s Tower Rock and surrounding Park. From this base, see the spetacular Glacier Park or the continent’s largest dinosaur digs to the northwest, float the Lewis and Clark Trail by pontoon boat and lunch at the island where one of the nation's most famous fires occurred, or travel south to Yellowstone National Park or Jackson Hole, each an easy day’s visit.

Bring your dogs to the kennel behind the house, hang on the deck with river and tremendous rock views, play pool or light the outside fire pit for a campfire. BBQ or enjoy the new, custom kitchen and fisherman’s décor. In the evening, take your pick of 3 spacious bedrooms where at the end of the day 6 extra long beds await or tie a few at the fly-tying table.

If you’ve worn out your guide, invite him to stay in the renovated 1898 historic Cooper house (often listed on your GPS). This guest house sleeps 2 more.

About Donna

We are avid outdoor people with political jobs that keep us indoors or reading the news all too often. The men were driving thousands of miles on annual 'vacation' fly fishing the West. One year I persuaded them to rent a week in Montana, and they found hundreds of great spots to fish all where the Dearborn and Missouri Rivers connect. The next year we bought not one but two great houses -- and have not looked back.

Donna purchased this house in 2005

Why Donna chose Cascade

We fish in the summer and hunt in the winter ... and there is nothing like leaving the humidity and hanging out on the water.

What makes this house unique

We drive through Yellowstone to Jackson Hole, go to Fort Benton for the statue of a dog (Shep) and the most famous Wild West block north of Great Falls, visit the Charles Russell Museum to see the new exhibits, float the historic tour of the places Lewis and Clark saw, and endlessly fish or sunbathe. There are shrimp-fed edible pink fish at the dam, and someone is always giving us elk or venison to roast (which you can actually buy), yum! And the galleries and jewelry are fabulous, but you may even enjoy the gambling. The first time I read in the yard, three deer were curious and came closer to visit!

Accommodations were great house is beautiful and spacious, great place to get away. Fishing the Mo was a blast no idea how many we caught but it was well over 100. Scenery off the back deck is fantastic, saw tons of wildlife and spent hours watching satellites wiz by in the great Montana sky. Great trip will do it again soon.

We produce a TV show called "Fishing with Ladin" and travel all throughout the northwest fishing and filming. This place is definitely a favorite and one we would love to return to with our families.
The house is spacious and beautifully done and even has a pool table. It sits on the banks of the Dearborn River with a tremendous view.
We had a great time fishing the Dearborn up and downriver from the house and also floated the river with our raft. We floated from the house down to the Missouri River. If you are fishing the Missouri River this is a great place to stay. It is about 20 minutes from Craig.
We were able to film two episodes for our upcoming season.

Montana Rendevous

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I invited two other couples to join us for a week-long stay at this beautiful home in a secluded valley 500 yards upstream of the Missouri River which Lewis & Clark traversed on their Voyage of Discovery. The home is spacious - three comfortable bedrooms and two baths - with a very modern kitchen and large dining and living areas, with a big deck overlooking the property and Dearborn River. It's very conveniently located half way between Great Falls and Helena, which provide lots of sightseeing opportunities. And it's only 30 minutes from Craig, MT, where the float fishing guides provide superb rainbow and brown trout fishing - even for novices. We also made day trips to Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. It's a wonderful place for a vacation in The Big Sky Country, which we highly recommend !!!!

Fabulous Escape

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful time we had!! Your home is in the most beautiful setting with the river right below and the high canyon walls where we could watch the eagles soar from their perches. It was our first true experience at fly fishing and we are hooked. The fun part is we both caught equal amounts of rainbow trout. Sitting on the lovely porch in the morning, watching the deer and enjoying the first cup of coffee was special. My wife already wishes we were back preparing for a day of fishing. An unforgettable vacation! We highly recommend a stay to any and everyone. Thanks

A Few Days in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
I traveled from Ireland with my three kids to stay in this beautiful house on the Dearborn in July 2009. Of the three weeks we sepnt in Montana, this was the highlight. The weather was perfect, the river was fantastic for swimming (I couldn't believe the number of fantastic swimming holes within strolling distance of the house), the lodge was perfectly laid out for family comfort and leisure, we were visited every evening by an eagle that roosted on one of the crags across the river and every morning by deer in the opposite field - I can't list all of the spectacular moments along the Dearborn (not to mention that we could get to Great Falls, the Rocky Mountain Front, Gates of the Moutnains, etc. easily by car). My kids and I are dying to return.

We stayed in this house during the Christmas holiday with our family and had such a memorable time. The house was beautiful and the area magnificent. The atmosphere brought us back to a simpler time. The owners, Donna and David were wonderful to work with, as was their local representative, Iris.
