It's time to book your Montana fly fishing trip today. Great dates available. The 'browns and bows' are waiting for you just outside the door. The River's Edge Retreat is conveniently located a few short miles north of Craig and south of Cascade. Enjoy the peaceful river view from a rocking chair on the large covered deck or wade fish the 90 foot of private river frontage. The grassy lawn gradually slopes to the waters edge where you can wade fish early morning or evenings. This is the perfect place for a combination of floating and wade fishing.

The house is available year round for your get-away.

River's Edge Retreat is a comfortable remodeled/updated home perfect for relaxing after a day of fly fishing the 'blue ribbon' waters of the Missouri River. The home is furnished in Montana fishing decor. New flooring in the kitchen and main bath in 2016.

The master bedroom is furnished with a King size bed and an XL twin bed. The second bedroom features a double bed, an XL twin and an adjoining bathroom. The second full bath is just down the hall. Toiletries are provided.

After dark, gather at the pub table and play one of your favorite card games or enjoy a movie on the DVD/TV or surf the net on our high speed WiFi, new this year. The leather full size sofa/sleeper in the living room can be used for additional sleeping accommodations. The gas fireplace adds ambiance and takes the early morning or evening chill off.

Montana is known for it's outstanding dry fly fishing. With shallow water and thin, narrow islands to fish against, this is the perfect setting for your trout fishing experience. An ideal float is to put in at Craig or Stickney and float to the Rivers Edge Retreat, pull your boat up on the lawn for the night and head out the next day for the Prewitt takeout.

If you are in need of fly fishing lessons or a guided day on the river, please let us know and we can assist you with that aspect of your fly fishing experience.

We have plenty of room for your driftboat.

There are restaurants in the area if you choose to dine out. Cascade (14 miles north on I-15) has a grocery store and gas station. Craig has a great restaurant, Izaaks.

About Patti

My husband and I have been in Montana since 1978. We love the beauty of the state . We both grew up in Nebraska and Iowa. We raised our children in Helena and operate a Flag and flagpole business there. We enjoy our time on the Missouri river, kayaking and fishing and most important just relaxing and watching the river and the wildlife it offers.

Why Patti chose Cascade

We had a home on the river and in 2005 purchased Rivers Edge Retreat to offer those who want to get away and experience the Missouri river's Blue Ribbon fishing.

What makes this house unique

There is awesome fishing right out the front door and down a gently slopping bank. This works great for those who want to fish early in the morning or in the evening without having to launch their boat. The house is across the river and about 1/4 mile downriver from Mid Cannon Fishing Access. The 1 acre property has plenty of room to put your boat. The grassy areas are perfect for those who want to sleep out under the stars. The large deck on the riverside of the house allows our guests to sit in the rocking chairs and relax while they watch the river or prepare dinner on the Bar B Q.

Rivers Edge Retreat is just off the frontage road and accessible year round.

Wonderful property on a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean and well kept. The accommodations were first class, and all the little "extras" were really appreciated. The kitchen left nothing wanting, everything that you could think of needing was there. We were fishermen and it was really nice being right on the water, and being so central to the rest of the river. We really enjoyed the big front porch, and the grill was super clean. There is plenty of parking, and since we all arrived in separate cars, it really worked out well. Even room for the drift boat. The beds were extremely comfortable, and there was plenty of room for everybody. Having plenty of hooks on the walls is something that a lot of places don't do enough of. We had lots.

The bathrooms and linens were very nice.

All in all, we really enjoyed our stay here, and look forward to returning for another visit.

Thank you Patty and Fred!

Great property and great owners!!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the rental very much. Due to the inclement weather, the front deck and side porch came in extremely useful. Property was clean and comfortable.

Freeway is close and above rental, however, the noise was minimal and notr herad at night over our snoring.

Would definitely rent again if Patti allows us :-) !!

Thank You!

Great flyfishing retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last June, and had a terrific experience. Very cozy clean house with nice bedrooms, comfortable living room and a terrific deck. They've thought of everything - the BBQ was very clean, and there was a spare propane tank in the storage area. The best part is the back deck and lawn down to the river. We had really good views of the river and the surround mountains. We were concerned before we arrived about road noise - but it really wasn't an issue at all. Would absolutely stay here again.

Fisherman's hideaway on the Missouri!

  • 5 of 5

My father and I have been fishing in Montana in Idaho for 20 years, but this is our first time not staying at a big lodge. The River's edge retreat proved to be a perfect location for our early may fishing trip on the big Mo'! We had enough room for our guide to day with us, and even pulled off on the river for lunch and a quick warm up by the fireplace on our float to Mountain Palace.

The property was clean, comfortable, and warm. Patti was quick to respond and very communicative regarding all aspects of our stay.

We will be back!!!
