Our little corner of the world is located in a remote corner of NW Montana just a couple of miles south of the Canadian Border.  We have 2.5 acres, nestled between the Amish School House, the Kootenai General Store and the Amish Woodworks shop.  

The nights are incredibly starry - as if you are traveling through space and can reach out to touch the heavens.  Feel free to set up camp anyplace within the green grassy areas.  The horses in the pasture belong to the neighbors.  Please respect their wishes.  There is a fire pit out front as well as a hose and workshop. 

Hip Campers may use the bath and shower on the main level but please do not disturb the rest of the house as visitors may come and go at various times.  

Hike up to Mt. Robson or go swimming in the KooCanUSA reservoir.  Although very few people live in the area, this is the hub of the village.   Being on the West Kootenai is like traveling back in time to the days of Little House on the Prairie.  

Please consider leaving $20 on the table for the local neighbor ladies who will clean the bathroom and wash the towels after your visit.  Thank you!

has mixed feelings towards this listing.
July 10th, 2021

I was under the impression that the bathroom and other amenities listed on the site were included for paying guests. I ended up paying 25$ to stay on someone’s front lawn. Luckily a grounds keeper was kind enough to offer a water spigot and point us in the direction of an outhouse down the road. The owner and person in charge of the property was not there, and communication to the grounds keeper was slow and minimal, he seemed to be startled by our presence.
