Big Sky Critter Farm LLC

1 site · RV, Tent10 acres · Great Falls, Cascade
Just minutes from Benton Lake National Wildlife Refuge, Giant Springs State Park, and the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center... I have a small farm with goats, a calf, horses, mini horses and mini donkeys, chickens, geese, couple cats, and raise mini-Aussies. With plenty of room for someone to come stay, check out the animals, with quick access to Great Falls, check out the night life, a short trip to the river, or even a drive to the mountains. Quiet and peaceful setting. I open up my land to campers which helps the costs to feed and care for the animals. Alot of these animals have been rescued and provided with a forever home. Stay a night, or up to a week and enjoy being out in the country on a farm. Wi-Fi available with request for password upon request during stay.

Love brought me to this amazing property fourteen years ago where I found true inner peace ( I moved here from the San Francisco Bay Area).  This area is rich with Native American  facts and lore, the energy all encompassing.  The cabin is tucked under 2 ancient cottonwood trees on the bank of the Sun River (formerly the Medicine River).  Relax and recharge.Learn more about this land:Beautifully appointed 8’ elevated cabin on the Sun River. Hawks, eagles, pheasant, beaver, various water fowl along with deer, antelope, fox & coyote will greet you each morning and evening and the occasional bear or snake. Hike, fish, relax, sightsee.  Historic Native American area.  Rural, semi offgrid.  Cold water access except during cold months.  Five gallon, carbon neutral showers are solar heated (unless inclement weather).

MT Keene Life is Good Lodge

1 site · Lodging10 acres · Craig, Cascade
Wade the Dearborn in the back yard of this 3-bedroom house (fourth bedroom/living room or guide cabin next door ($150/stay to open) on 10 acres of the former Gary Cooper Ranch. Don’t be surprised to see deer, geese and ducks in the window nudging their way near the deck, especially at the spring waterfall that cascades down the slope. if you are especially quiet and observant, the hundreds of acres of park and ranch across the river also have mountain goats, bears, antelope and even the mountain lion. Help yourself to the library, watch satellite television or DVD movies, or read from the house’s library. The public put-in is an 11 hour trip; private access to two shorter put-ins make this a recommended site for many Montana guides. Launch from the back yard and float one half mile down the Dearborn River to the Missouri River or from anywhere on the Dearborn to your own private fishing hole among some of nature’s oldest rock outcroppings. Only few miles from the Missouri Inn over the bridge where the Untouchables was filmed, enjoy the canyon or visit the Lewis and Clark’s Tower Rock and surrounding Park. From this base, see the spectacular Glacier Park or the continent’s largest dinosaur digs to the northwest, float the Lewis and Clark Trail by pontoon boat and lunch at the island where one of the nation's most famous fires occurred, or travel south to Yellowstone National Park or Jackson Hole, each an easy day’s visit. Bring your dogs to the kennel behind the house, hang on the deck with river and tremendous rock views, play pool or light the outside fire pit for a campfire. BBQ or enjoy the new, custom kitchen and fisherman’s décor. In the evening, take your pick of 3 spacious bedrooms where at the end of the day 6 extra long beds await or tie a few at the fly-tying table.
