Overview

Beartooth Mountains House Rental Photos and Description

Bedrooms 4, Bathrooms 2, Sleeps 10

This historic lodge has 4 bedrooms, a sleeper den, 2 baths, hot tub, and sleeps 8-10 comfortably. The Rendezvous Lodge of Red Lodge, Montana is a (circa. 1934) log home built from the towering pines that were cleared to make way for the construction of Beartooth Pass. It became the project managers home during this historic undertaking in highway building. The Rendezvous offers a true sanctuary to one family or multiple families. Many use the home as a gathering point for reunions, celebrations, workshops and retreats. The kitchen is well appointed, roomy and the counter is enriched with 4 bar stools for all to gather. Here is a galley where it is rare to utter "Get out of the kitchen!" The dining area is conveniently close to the kitchen. With the lodge pole ceilings, wagon wheel chandelier, a nice art collection, comfortable furniture and a stunning hearth, the great room is, well, great. It is a place you'd expect to have a brandy with Teddy Roosevelt or Bill Cody. The 4 bedrooms are tucked away in their own world, with down quilts, and exceedingly comfortable beds. Each has its own esprit, from playful (twins and kids) to the grand master bedroom, with a walk in closet, built in dressers and a log frame king bed. The Rendezvous is situated in a park like setting, surrounded by low rock walls. The patio, complete with table and barbeque grill looks out towards the Beartooth Range. The hot tub (4 associates, 6 good friends), shares the large patio, and is only a few feet from the door. A stay at the Rendezvous, with its splendid ambience is an experience that touches your soul. Here, the past is always present; it is Montana after all, the last best place.

The Rendezvous Lodge has a bedroom with a king sized bed, two rooms with a double bed in each, a room with two twin beds and the den with a double sized futon. It is a single story log home with two remodeled bathrooms.

Unique Cabin Stay

  • 3 of 5

Overall the decore and atmosphere of this place is great. The fireplace is a great feature the whole family can gather around. We were here over Christmas and enjoyed the hot tub as well. The rooms and setup allowed three families (Family 1: 2 Adults, 2 children; Family 2: 2 Adults, 1 child; Family 3: 2 Adults) to stay in relative comfort with everyone having their own bed.

This cabin would probably be an excellent choice in the summer or warmer weather. This winter, with temperatures hovering around zero or ten degrees, showed that the cabin is not exactly air-tight. Both bathrooms were extremely cold and drafty. We did find some space heaters that are probably provided for this very reason and put them to good use. The bedroom off the living room was very cold. It needs to be either sealed from the elements better or some more ventilation from the living room needs to be provided -- it was a full time effort to keep the temperature livable in there. The main bedroom has a heat source and it was easy to keep warm and livable, but the other bedrooms were not exactly toasty and warm. We pulled the drapes closed on every window at night to try and keep the heat in, but it was of little help. While the temperature problems overnight were not pleasant, it was very manageable during the day when most people were in the kitchen and living room areas.

The kitchen is suitable, but the dishwasher seems to have an ongoing problem. There was a note in the welcome materials that indicated that the dishwasher had been looked at by a technician, but that it would beep and blow the breaker occasionally. That definitely happened while we were there and while it didn't stop our activities, it seems like a problem that shouldn't be there when you're paying nearly four hundred dollars a night to stay somewhere. A note that is who knows how old does not help the situation.

Beyond these problems, our stay was generally good. I would probably look for a different place in the winter time if we decided to come back, but -- in warmer weather -- I'm sure this place would be great!

Real Montana

  • 5 of 5

The biggest problem with this place is that as soon as folks see it, they want to move to Red Lodge and live in this house. It's a wonderful timber structure, extremely roomy (we had only four individuals), the multiple bathrooms were a blessing, and the facility was expertly managed. We're traveling from Minnesota, to Yellowstone, Glacier and points before and after, though I am a native Montanan. I have been to, and stayed in, Red Lodge many times, and had no idea this property was right there, secluded on the edge of town. I'd rebook this rental on every stay in the area.

Fiftieth anniversary celebration

  • 5 of 5

Rustic, quaint and cozy - all that we were looking for in a log cabin. The beds are very comfortable. We loved relaxing on the covered patio and also sitting on the stools in the kitchen while we kept the cook company. We definitely hope to go back.

Great family reunion base

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nicely decorated property with good amenities. We were there in the summer, but used the gas stoves one of the evenings and they were very nice. We had a range of ages from mid-seventies, forty-somethings, a teen and 2 4-year-olds. We were all comfortable and everyone remarked how much they liked the house. The hot tub was clean and working. The wifi was a great extra.

We recently stayed at the Rendezvous Lodge for a little Sister Chick birthday gathering. It was even better than expected. There was room for everyone and so fun to cook in rather than eat out. The description was accurate and directions easy to follow. The fireplace was warm and cozy as were the beds. We had so much fun just exploring the cabin and it's fun decor. We've decided to book this cabin again in the future. Can't say enough good about the accommodations. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

We stayed for a family reunion, enough room for all!

  • 4 of 5

We were in Red Lodge for a family reunion and we were looking for a place to stay for 8 adults. This fit the bill. The rooms are a little close together, so privacy is a little lacking. Great rustic cabin and decor. I loved the history of the building and the surrounding cabins. The cabin had everything we needed. Loved the fireplace! The surrounding buildings are close but it is in town so that makes sense. Hot tub was great, but needed a chemical refresh! Beds were comfortable! Table was huge and led to some great game time for our large group. We had a 10 month old with us and it was pretty safe for him to crawl around in. We did discover a few cobwebs on the ceiling. Thanks for the great stay!
