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.

Wonderful family vacation spot

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!

Wonderful Vacation Spot

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!

Four of us spent three very enjoyable nights at the Two Feathers cabin on the Dearborn River. Getting to the cabin requires a 4WD vehicle, due to the steep, gravel road, but, once you arrive the setting and accommodations are incredible. Wonderful view of the landscape and river from the front porch, which was perfect for morning coffee and evening drinks. Deer in the meadow each morning and evening, ducks in the river, and we even saw two river otters and several bald eagles. The privacy and seclusion made for an exceptional stay. We floated the Dearborn River from Highway 287 to the cabin, which was our main objective for the trip, and that made for a great adventure. We were able to fly fish from the cabin property and the Missouri River. The cabin itself is clean, spacious, powered by solar and wind, and was well set up for cooking indoors or grilling outdoors (we did both). We hope to stay again in the future, as we truly enjoyed the stay and our experiences.

Wow! This is the first time I have ever done a review for anything on line but decided that this place was so special that it deserved same. The cabin is beautiful, spotlessly clean and well appointed. We were a bit worried about the fact that there isn't a hook up to electricity but we never even noticed any difference with the solar and wind power and we were there for an entire week.
The 72 acre property is absolutely gorgeous and if you love to fly fish, than this is where you need to stay. We did a guided day trip on the Missouri, which exceeded our expectations, and the fly shops in Craig only 30 minutes away so convenient. But you can wade outside your door on the Dearborn River and catch rainbows and browns all day long. Nice 15 to 17 inchers! And then each evening we sat on the porch and watched the mule deer, whitetails, eagles and hawks.
The owners went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect and that we had everything we needed. They made you feel welcome from the first phone conversation.
My husband has declared this our favorite place to stay in Montana and next year we are bringing two of our children because there are so many things for them to do besides the fantastic fly fishing. Horsback riding, hiking, kayaking etc... The cabin can easily accomadate a family of four.
Thank you Two Feathers Lodge for helping us have an extremely fun and relaxing vacation!

GREAT LODGE IN A FANTASTIC LOCATION

We travelled from the UK and were not disappointed when we arrived at the road end where we were met and guided in to the property. Coming from the UK it was hugely exciting to be in such a beautiful area with plenty of wildlife. The idea that a bear might make an appearance made it even better. We didn't see one but there were plenty of deer and some great birds with Osprey (very rare in the UK) successfully fishing in the river - wonderful sight.
We didn't see anyone for the three days we were at the lodge so it was great to chill out and practise my new hobby of fly fishing without an audience of fisher people laughing at my poor casting. The fishing was great and I caught my first Montana trout on the river - brilliant.
The Lodge was very comfortable with wonderful views and had everything we needed included inflatable inner tubes for the river - which we used when we went swimming in the pools in the river. Barbecues on the verandah and also picnics by the river using the picnic table.
I wish we could have stayed longer it was one of the highlights of our trip to Montana.
