    Stunning view of Rocky Mountains

    Great views and isolated.. exactly what I was looking for. The view out the front window of the Rocky Mountain Front is awesome

    Great Experience!

    Remote but what an experience. Was a little unsettling driving down the gravel road expecting perhaps to see bears and elk, but was thrilled to see how perfect the property matched the great reviews we had read! Very clean, spacious, and had everything you need. We were there four nights and enjoyed every minute. Take the drive through the Lewis and Clark National Forest for an unforgettable experience! If driving after dark watch for beautiful elk and deer—they are everywhere! And lastly, make sure you take in the Glacier National Park—we have visited many National Parks and Glacier ranks at the very top!

    We couldn’t have asked for a more gracious host or beautiful property! The views, the location, and all around peacefulness of this spot is second to none. It was exactly what we needed to relax and recharge!

    Peaceful Retreat

    This is a very peaceful place to spend a few days recharging one’s batteries after the crazy year this has been. The rental is super clean and very well equipped. The beds are comfy and the views are as advertised. Loved spending time outside with our pre dinner drinks listening to the birds, and later in the evening watching the sun go down behind the Rockies. Diana and Dan were quick to answer enquiries, specifically about fishing spots for the hubs to get some R&R. Thanks again for enabling us spend time here.

    Guest House with a VIEW, and everything you need for a Great getaway

    As many previous Guests have said: "This home is a wonderful place to stay for a long time". Clean, with everything you need to kick back and enjoy the Montana ranch land. Best VRBO beds around, kitchen has everything, and I really mean "Everything". Beautiful surroundings and lots of sights to see from the Guest House, as others have mentioned. Mary is a Artist and found the views to be insperational, so, she put it to canvas. Great piece of work which she gave to Diana and Dan as a "Special Thanks" for making our visiut to Montana such a wonderful experiance. We have family in northern Montana and we are looking forward to a return to this wonderful Guest House in the future. BYW, Our views of the mountains in Tucson are spectacular, however, the views from the Guest House give new meaning to spectular. Whoever is up next to the Guest House is going to love it.

    Wouldn’t stay any where else!

    My husband and I stayed at the Homestead for a couple of nights and as soon as we pulled up, it was already more than we had imagined! The view you get alone is worth every penny. Everything was so clean and all the necessities were there which made our trip go even smoother than planned. It’s such a cozy place and the small touches truly put it above most other stays! We would certainly recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the area and we hope to stay at this beautiful property again in the future.

    Beautiful, well supplied house with an amazing view of the mountains. Just be aware it is approximately 20 miles from the town, and at least 2 hours from Glacier National Park. Would definitely stay here again!!

    Just the ticket.

    This property is the perfect getaway to rest and recharge or a base for exploring the outdoors. Views are spectacular and the accommodations lacked nothing. Rented for a short stay between hunts to recharge, hike and test equipment. Wish the family was with as they would have enjoyed it as well.
