About the property

Newly remodeled 2 bedroom, 1 bath historic log cabin with modern kitchen/bath

Private access to 3/8 mile blue ribbon trout fishing! Enjoy the thrill of catching rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout within steps of the cabin.

Situated near the Beartooth Mountains,13 miles west of Absarokee on the banks of the Stillwater River, guests at The River Cabin at Falcon's Ledge can enjoy a variety of activities including fly and freshwater fishing, day hikes, horseback or ATV riding, whitewater rafting, snorkeling and swimming, in-season hunting and historic scenic drives.

If your goal is rest and relaxation, The River Cabin at Falcon's Ledge offers peace and quiet all around. One can simply sit on the deck with a cool drink in hand (and a fishing pole nearby) watching the Stillwater River as it rushes by in the springtime or glides lazily by in the late summer and fall. There is little ambient light in the area, so stars are aplenty, making for fun nighttime sky viewing all summer!

Located between the rural towns of Absarokee and Nye Montana, this cabin's interior is newly remodeled and updated. Two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with a queen and a single bed offers overnight accommodations to five.

About Donna von Nieda

Kurt and Donna von Nieda moved their family to The River Cabin at Falcon's Ledge in the Stillwater Valley from Washington state. It was always their dream to live in Montana and they have raised three children in The River Cabin. They love the valley, the people and the wildlife in this little bit of 'heaven on earth.'

Donna von Nieda purchased this cabin in 1998

Why Donna von Nieda chose Nye

This property was selected primarily because of its variety of land features. From the 3/8 of a mile of river front to the landmark 'teakettle' rock, this piece of property is ever changing and dramatic.

What makes this cabin unique

One of the best aspects of staying at The River Cabin at Falcon's Ledge is that you get to listen to the soothing sounds and watch the cascade of water flowing by. Couple that with the lilting sounds of birds and wind in the trees, and (at the right time of year) the fragrance of lilacs in the air and you have an experience like none other. With little ambient light and noise, there is a tranquility and sense of peace at The River Cabin that is hard to find nowadays.

Wonderful Cabin On The Stillwater

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time at the river cabin. The accommodations were really nice and as described. Donna was fantastic and took time to meet me at the cabin to show me around and point out some great "trouty" fishing holes. Looking forward to staying at the river cabin again.

Relaxing 😎

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here. The cabin was clean, fully stocked with towels and linens, dishes and appliances. Loved relaxing on the covered deck and listening to the water roll by. We also enjoyed being able to step out the door and being able to fish. Donna was very friendly and interesting to visit with. So very much enjoyed this stay.

Wonderful experience, perfect cabin in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

5 of us stayed at this cabin for a wedding we were attending a short mile down the road. Donna met us with open arms when we arrived. The cabin was clean (SO CLEAN), updated and spacious for 5 adults. Donna was WONDERFUL to work with. She was extremely helpful when we were looking for things to do while we were there, suggesting many places and activities. She gave us instructions on grocery shopping, car rentals, directions to the cabin and so much more. The house was extremely well stocked with towels, sheets, pillows, soap, paper towels and more. The scenery was picturesque from the cabin, being able to listen to the river all day and night was such a treat. If we are ever in Montana again, we would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you Donna for being so wonderful!

Everything was as advertised

  • 4 of 5

Donna and her husband couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. Everything was as we expected it to be. We recommend this rental. A few conveniences such as a T.V screen which can access wi-fi, and a hard wired phone with free nationwide calling would have improved things a bit, especially since there is no cell reception.

Truly an amazing slice of earth. The cabin is clean and homey with upgraded amenities not typically found in vacation rentals. Donna is a treat to work with. Fishing right in front of camp yielded some excellent results. Thank you!

Beautiful cabin right on Stillwater. Great, accommodating owner, terrific location. No real action fly fishing right there, but excellent upstream in the forest section.
