IMPORTANT: Please contact the owner for details BEFORE booking online. This H.A. system has trouble determining rates based on the size of your group, etc (for instance, a couple only needs the main cabin with a main season weekly rate of $1400 plus $98 tax. A group of six needs both cabins at $1800 plus $126 tax). The posted "average" rate is often inaccurate.
This log cabin and guest cottage sit on a lovely, grassy bench on 21 acres at the base of Emigrant Peak (elevation 10,960). The views from the cabins are stunning and the cabins themselves are comfortable and cozy, filled with books and interesting collectibles.
The two-bedroom main cabin has a full bath, a hide-a-bed, a fully-equipped kitchen, a TV/VCR/DVD, satellite TV, wireless internet, and a stereo. It's available for rent by itself. The two-bedroom guest cottage has two full baths. It has no kitchen facilities, and so is available only with the main cabin (the two buildings are never rented to separate parties).
The property borders vast public land; the hiking from the property is excellent. The cabins are located midway between Yellowstone Park and Livingston, Montana in the Paradise Valley. The Yellowstone River, Chico Hot Springs Resort, and the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness are close by.
Wildlife seen (by eye or scope) from the cabins includes elk, deer, wolves, bobcats, foxes, eagles, hawks, bluebirds, and cranes.
The cabins are available and enjoyable year-round, and have central heat as well as a wood stove in the living room and a cute gas fireplace in the bedroom. The climate from late spring through early fall is usually temperate, although mornings and evenings can be cool.
Winter conditions fluctuate widely, with temperatures ranging from well below zero to well above freezing. Winter is more of an adventure, but is unfailingly beautiful.
The log cabin has a washer, dryer, and unique outside clothesline.
For recreation, the log cabin has a TV/VCR and a stereo with CD player. It also has a library of fiction, non-fiction and naturalist reference as well as various board games. Outside there is a rustic basketball hoop and a maintained horseshoe pit. The property has direct hiking and horse access to millions of acres of public land.
