John and Ruth Sechena live in Seattle, WA. John was born in Great Falls, MT and his heart is still there. We come home to Montana for 5 or 6 weeks a year; it keeps us sane.
Ruth Sechena purchased this cabin in 2010
We know the Dearborn.
Born & raised in Montana, John and his 2 brothers have floated and fished the Dearborn since the early 70's. One brother bought 33 acres and Grandma brought 28 acres (for the grandkids) just one river bend up from our log cabin & made it possible for all of our kids to swim, fish, hike and bike there. The oldest has just entered college & we are sure he will keep coming back.
Over all these years John has always wanted to buy the property upon which our cabin stands because of its inherent beauty and its incredible swimming & fishing holes. When it came up for sale last year we knew we would never get another chance.
You don't have to leave the property to have a great time. Get up, catch breakfast, take a swim in some really beautiful swimming holes.
Hike or bike the property or adjacent back roads. Put your boat/floation device in right from the property and float to the Missouri River or put in at Hwy 287 (up river) and enjoy an incredibly scenic all day float..
BBQ dinner on the spacious deck with friends & family; watch local wildlife cross the meadow in front of you on their way to the river; hear all of natures sounds because it's quiet.
This place is absolutely wonderful. I went in with high expectations, and my expectations were were exceeded. The cabin is well maintained, and the owners could not be more friendly. We enjoyed walking the property and fires down by the river. If you are looking to disconnect and relax, this is the place for you. I'll be back.
It was great to unplug from the real world at this cabin. No TV, Internet or cell phone service, unless you go on top of the mountain.. Cabin is beautiful and cozy. Had amazing time with family, kids had a blast. Was great to see how kids have not even mentioned that they miss TV or computer games while at this cabin. They always had something to do, fish, swim, tube, play darts, board games, hike.. Taught my kids how to catch crawfish..The best thing was jumping in to the river of the big rocks, that brought back some great childhood memories..
It was amazing to wake up in the morning in to such a great view, nature and landscape there is amazing and peaceful.
Fishing was great, we caught about 7-8 Rainbow trout, one of them was about 25".
Thank you Ruth for letting us stay at your cabin, it was most amazing time..
We had an amazing 4 nt. stay. The cabin is exceptional and well thought out, from it's location on the property to the shaded wrap around deck with expansive views of the river below. We were treated to a wildlife show(deer with fawns, a small black bear foraging for berries and swimming in the river...) every morning and night. It's the perfect place to unwind - didn't see another person until we left the property. Our kids(6 and9) especially enjoyed tubing the river, catching crayfish, and swimming. The road is unmaintained so a good AWD or 4x4 is a must to get there. Can't wait for our return trip!
This was our 2nd stay at the cabin. Last time was for 3 nights, this time we stayed a full week. When you are finally sitting on that porch and looking at that spectacular view, you really can't believe your luck to experience something that is truly special and wonderful. A week wasn't enough! The cabin itself is gorgeous, clean and very comfortable. We were the audience to a Doe and her 2 fawn suckling and hanging out by the porch all day. We also got to watch a bunny family each evening munching around in the back by the wood. And a humming bird each day seemed to think the brightly coloured ottoman on the porch was a flower :) - floating on the Dearborn and ending up back at your own private swimming hold to eat lunch just can't be beat!
Had a great 3 night stay at this cabin and will definitely be coming back, hopefully in the near future. Very clean and gorgeous views!
The cabin and the property far exceeded our expectations. I have never been to a more private and idyllic retreat. There is nothing but nature, a crystal clear trout river and a well appointed real log cabin with all modern day conveniences to occupy your view. The surrounding cliffs, mountains, and rock formations form a veritable 180 degree wall around the back of the cabin. We never had the slightest desire to leave the property. We will definitely be returning some day!
Two-Feathers Lodge is located in the scenic canyon area created as the Missouri River carves its path through the Big Belt Mountains.
Our cabin is located on the Dearborn River 2 miles upstream to the Missouri.
Floating & fly fishing tours on the Missouri and Dearborn Rivers can be provided by numerous local fly fishing shops and outfitters in Craig, Wolf Creek and Cascade, MT. In addition, scenic family boat tours are available at the Gates of the Mountains approximately 20 miles away.
Great Falls, MT is a ~50 minute drive and has the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center, the Charlie Russel Art Museum, the Great Falls of the Missouri, Giant Springs, etc. (see our website for links)
We are half-way between Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks which makes a stay with us a welcome respite to your car tour of Montana's famous parks.
