John and Ruth Sechena live in Seattle, WA. John was born in Great Falls, MT and his heart is still there. We come home to Montana for 5 or 6 weeks a year; it keeps us sane.
Ruth Sechena purchased this cabin in 2010
We know the Dearborn.
Born & raised in Montana, John and his 2 brothers have floated and fished the Dearborn since the early 70's. One brother bought 33 acres and Grandma brought 28 acres (for the grandkids) just one river bend up from our log cabin & made it possible for all of our kids to swim, fish, hike and bike there. The oldest has just entered college & we are sure he will keep coming back.
Over all these years John has always wanted to buy the property upon which our cabin stands because of its inherent beauty and its incredible swimming & fishing holes. When it came up for sale last year we knew we would never get another chance.
You don't have to leave the property to have a great time. Get up, catch breakfast, take a swim in some really beautiful swimming holes.
Hike or bike the property or adjacent back roads. Put your boat/floation device in right from the property and float to the Missouri River or put in at Hwy 287 (up river) and enjoy an incredibly scenic all day float..
BBQ dinner on the spacious deck with friends & family; watch local wildlife cross the meadow in front of you on their way to the river; hear all of natures sounds because it's quiet.
The cabin and the property far exceeded our expectations. I have never been to a more private and idyllic retreat. There is nothing but nature, a crystal clear trout river and a well appointed real log cabin with all modern day conveniences to occupy your view. The surrounding cliffs, mountains, and rock formations form a veritable 180 degree wall around the back of the cabin. We never had the slightest desire to leave the property. We will definitely be returning some day!
This cabin is a magical stay. The property is absolutely gorgeous, and the cabin itself was super clean and had everything we needed. We spent our days hiking and floating the Dearborn, watching deer, beavers, horses and hawks. The stars at night will blow your mind. The cabin owners were super helpful and accommodating to us leading up to the stay as well as escorting us up the mountain road to the property. We plan to stay here again next year and every year to come!
My husband and I stayed in the cabin with our 14 year old son for a week. The location was exactly what we were looking for. It was peaceful, quiet, and the perfect place to reconnect as a family. It was nice to get away from electronics and actually talk to each other! We played games on the porch as we watched the deer in the meadow. My son fished everyday in the river right in front of the cabin. My favorite time was the evenings when we all sat on the porch together, watched the deer, listened to music, barbequed dinner, and talked. This was our best vacation as a family ever. We will be back next year for sure!
Coordination was easy, the owners were responsive and the property is amazing! It is secluded but it's exactly what we were looking for. We fished the Missouri 2 days and then fished the Dearborn in front of the cabin each night, a 20" Brown footsteps from our secluded cabin was a highlight of the trip. We will definitely stay here again.
My family had a blast at this beautiful cabin! My husband grew up in Montana and has always wanted to show myself & our children where he grew up. We drove from NY to this amazing place. I watched Montana come alive in my children's eyes as my boys, 9 & 10 years old learned how to fly fish and patiently waited until they caught their first fish. My 6 year old daughter loved tubing in the river and then using the tub on the front porch. She thought it was so cool to take a bath outside! I enjoyed rocking on the front porch and reading my book. It was so relaxing & peaceful. We watched the stars pop out of the sky as we listened to the flowing river while sitting by the warm campfire. The cabin was so clean and welcoming. We loved all the rustic furniture. They had everything you could possibly need there for us. We had such a great time and can't wait to go back. The kids looked for animals and saw birds, eagles & deer. They loved being able to go fishing, swimming, hiking and never asked for tv or electronics. There was so much they could do right there on the property. We ate every meal outside and used the grill most of the time. My husband was in his glory to be back where he grew up. This was the perfect spot for him to bring his family to get a real taste of what Montana is all about. Thank you for sharing your place with us and allowing us the opportunity to take home such wonderful memories. We will be back!
My family and I spent a full week at Two Feathers Lodge and we had a wonderful time. When we arrived Bob met us at the highway and led us into the cabin - I was glad to have a 4X4 for the road into the cabin. The cabin is fantastic - clean, well maintained and well appointed. What we loved most about the cabin was the peace and quiet - we didn't see another soul while we were at the cabin. We had the river to ourselves - the kids and I would fish every morning (both kids caught their first fish on a dry fly right in front of the cabin) and then we would play in the river (snorkeling, tubing, catching cray fish, etc.) in the afternoon. In the evenings we would barbecue and sit on the porch playing games, watching wildlife and enjoying the view. The kids loved watching the bats that would come out at dusk. We went for a family trail ride with Bull Run Guest Ranch and I had a great day of fishing on the Missouri with Nick from Headhunters Fly Shop in Craig. We try and travel to a different area/cabin each summer and so far this was cabin is our favourite!
