Tucked away from the busyness of life & nestled between the ponderosa pine & aspen trees sits; Cabin In The Wildwood. Only 1/4 mile walk from the Bitterroot River, this one room cabin might be all you need to regain your peace of mind from the whirlwind of life. This simple & rustic, but warmly cozy cabin will take you back to a time where life was much more simple. A place where farm life meets the wild life, and all you have to do is watch. And, the newly built one room log cabin is complete with many windows to see it happen all around you! A queen sized log canopy bed with linens is where you will rest at the end of a busy (or not so busy) day enjoying the wonderfullness of our beautiful Bitterroot Valley and all she has to offer.
The Cabin In The Wildwood is a dry cabin, (no running water). But provided is a water cooler & sink, with "gray water" catch basin under sink for doing dishes. Your full bath facility is only a short 30 second walk across the grass to a private outside entrance (for our guests only) in the main home complete with fresh towels and hot water! A casual 1/4 mile walk leads you to a private 5 acre "park". Owned jointly with the surrounding landowners, sits on the edge of our beautiful, & bountiful Bitterroot river.
The cabin is complete with a small range with oven, sink, fridge & microwave & coffee maker. Dishes, pots and pans, flatware & glasses are available along with a BBQ if you feel like dining in. A fireplace & extra blankets will be provided in case the Montana evenings are a bit more chilly than you were expecting. Summer month temps can get to 100, but its very rare. One thing you can always count on: it WILL cool off in the evenings.
We are located approximately half way between Darby & Missoula, a straight shot north or south on Hwy 93. The Bitterroot Mountains to the west and the Sapphire Mountains to the east. A gorgeous drive you won't soon forget! Five miles from the cabin you are at Kootenai Creek trailhead, a breathtaking hike through the rocky mountains alongside freshwater waterfalls that are the Kootenai Creek. Only two miles from shopping and restaurants in Stevensville; where Montana first began! St. Mary's Mission, Blacksmith & Wildwood Breweries, Creamery Picnic, Mission Bistro, & Maries Italian Restaurant are just a few places and events to experience while lodging at Cabin In The Wildwood.
Wake up to the sounds of numerous birds that make the wildwood their home. Watch the deer, elk or moose make their way to water each day as they travel through the woods on the property's southern border. A bear & mountain lion have also been known to visit, however I have only witnessed the bear! Cabin in the Wildwood could easily be the Bitterroots "best kept secret" .... it could also be yours!
