The 1,000 square-foot cabin includes two bedrooms (sleeps seven), a full bathroom, and a mudroom. The living room, dining bar, and kitchen combine to make a “great room,” and the cabin includes a washer-dryer, microwave, full kitchen, dishwasher and range. The structure is heated by baseboard electric heat, as well as a wood-burning stove. A natural underground spring provides water to the cabin, as well as to a frost-free hydrant in the yard. Local phone service is provided and long distance service may be accessed by calling card. There is currently no cellular phone service in the area.
Immediate Cabin Area
A .6-mile-long gravel road connects the main ranch road with the cabin. You can hunt and hike immediately outside the cabin doors. Wildlife is visible from the cabin and in the surrounding forest and meadows. A small creek passes behind and beside the cabin. Fishing for pan-sized brook trout is .6 miles away in Warm Spring Creek, while Cutthroat trout, up to 24 inches, can be caught in small, but picturesque Castle Lake — after a scenic 2.5-mile hike.
The cabin has a large, covered front porch, with chairs, as well as a small, covered back porch that leads into the mudroom. All perimeter walls are natural log (most 118 years old).
The living room has a glass-front wood burning stove (firewood provided) and very comfortable couch and chair.
The kitchen includes a full complement of utensils, basic spices, eating/cookware, plates, glasses, paper and dish towels, paper napkins, crock pot, coffee, coffee maker & filters, griddle, CD player, and both cooking and eating utensils. There is no television in the cabin.
One bedroom has two sets of standard bunk beds and the other has a double-under-twin bunk bed. All beds were professionally handcrafted from Montana Lodgepole pine. Each bedroom has a dresser, closet, under-bed storage, sheets, blankets, and pillows. The master bathroom has a vacuum cleaner.
The spacious bathroom includes a toilet, large vanity, shower-bath, and seven full sets of towels. The mudroom contains a sink, washer-dryer, detergent, coat hooks, and equipment racks, while the hallway connecting the mudroom and bathroom contains a pantry and a storage closet.
