We live on ten acres tucked in the pines at the foot of the Sapphire mountains with views west of the broad Bitterroot Valley and the stunning Bitterroot Mountains. Only a mile behind our house is a state wildlife management area and beyond that National Forest and then the Welcome Creek Wilderness. We have a greenhouse and garden on site but our major vegetable growing operation is down in the valley. Lots of wildlife travel through our lot, including a number of owls. In our first five years here we have seen five different owl species, which gives the cabin its name! We have three resident cats and a blue heeler, along with 6 chickens who free roam and you will likely meet.Nestled in the pines with a beautiful view of the Bitterroot Mountains, this 200 Square foot cabin has a cozy sleeping loft, deck, kitchenette with propane stove(propane provided) and woodstove(wood provided). Potable water and outhouse available. As well as a picnic table and fire pit(not available during fire season). While the cabin is standalone, it is about 100 yards from our house in full view, so not 100% private. Parking is available a short walk from the cabin. Halfway between Hamilton and Missoula, we are located about 45 minutes drive from each, and about 10 minutes off the main highway. The last 3 miles to the cabin are a dirt road, but 4wd is not necessary.  NOTE: This is a loft, so renters must be able and comfortable to use a ladder! There is a small fold out couch on the ground level, but there is still a step to get up in the cabin.  Cabin does not have power, please bring your headlamps! Candles and some back up flashlights provided.  Water is available at nearby spigot/hose. Cabin sleeps 3, but feel free to bring sleeping pads and in that case a couple more could snug up in the loft, or out on the deck!

The little cabin felt so homey and cozy! Beautiful mountain views to wake up to, and you can tell they put their whole heart into the build. Five star outhouse too!

We loved staying at the loft on our way through Missoula! A special thank you to Jamie for his awesome CD that he left for us. The whole property is so cute and beautiful and we would definitely return if we're ever passing through again. Thanks so much!!!

Lovely cabin in bitterroot
Beautiful property, we stayed in a little cabin that seemed like it was recently built. Very comfortable, we loved the loft setup and although we didn’t use it, there was a really nice looking propane stove/oven combo in the cabin. They have some friendly chickens and cats on the property (and apparently a friendly blue heeler named blueberry who we unfortunately never got to meet). We will definitely book again next time we are in the bitterroot valley!

Quaint, quiet and picturesque!
Adorable lodging. Loved the quaint, quiet spot amongst the beautiful mountain scenery and the chickens.

We loved our stay at this spot! The loft is super beautiful, with great outdoor seating and views. We made ourselves a cup of coffee to enjoy on the porch and chatted with the chickens. The drive in itself was so neat and scenic, would go back just for that! The directions were super clear and everything was easy to find. My very only disappointment is not getting to meet Blueberry the Blue Heeler 🤩 Next time.. though we did get to say hello to a very sweet little tabby cat and that was wonderful. 10/10 recommend!

This place was very pretty. Jamie was super communicative and very helpful. He and Angi left produce from their garden for 10 dollars and we got quite a bit. We really enjoyed the chickens, dog and cats visiting us! Only thing that we felt was lacking is that we wish there were curtains over the west side windows as the light shone through the window really badly making it hard to cook. Otherwise 10/10.
