This super cozy, partially screened guest house is situated on 200 sweeping acres of flat pastureland and steep, rolling hillsides.  Huge floor to ceiling windows on the west side allow for a gorgeous view of the surrounding mountains and the lovely night sky. (find Iron Mountain Ranch on social media for more photos) The property features the owner's hand built straw bale house which is run off solar power, a friendly herd of horses along with some goofy goats, cats and dogs. The Screen House is approximately 100 feet from the owners straw bale house. We value your privacy.

Relax in your private screen house and enjoy the view or hike the surrounding area, bike, chill by the creek, swim the Columbia or Kettle River and fish Elbow Lake.  So much to do and all very close!  Horseback riding is available upon request and for an additional fee.

Since this hut is built with partially screened walls and partial solid walls, you should consider the season when requesting a booking.  I will accept bookings starting on May 1st but even in May the night time temps can be cold.  Checking the local Northport, WA weather forecast can give you an idea of what weather we will be expecting.  Please consider this luxurious tent camping as there is no heat source in the hut. During the early spring season and late fall we cover the screen walls with a clear window plastic to help the hut stay warmer for you. We can also provide a small propane heater inside the hut but we ask that you bring your own propane canister. A two burner propane cookstove is provided along with a small charcoal grill but please bring your own propane and charcoal. We have firewood available for the fire pit for free.

Utilize the unique composting toilet, our own design which became the first approved toilet of it's kind in the county.  A hot water shower with equally impressive views is close to the straw house but still as private as you need it to be.

**There is a very limited supply of potable water on the property so you are required to pack in your drinking and cooking water.  Dish washing and shower water is provided.**

We loved going out to Linday's Screen House.

The views and property are quite amazing and we got to enjoy both beautiful sunrises and sunsets while staying here. This place is an animal lovers dream. We were able to visit kittens, dogs, and horses while we stayed here. The host was amazing about organizing a horseback trip for my boyfriend and I during our stay. This allowed us to see the property, and she was able to show us some super spectacular spots that we were able to visit on our own as well. The screen house was closer to the hosts than we had anticipated but the hosts gave us lots of space and were great about accommodating the semi-reactive dog that we had with us.

If you are looking for an eco-friendly farm escape with spectacular views, this would be a fantastic choice.

The hosts were super nice. We loved seeing the animals and giving them treats. The screen house felt secluded even though it was close to the hosts house, and the honeysuckle was in full bloom so we had a lovely smelling stay and the rain on the tin roof was seriously relaxing.

Their dogs were very well behaved despite our skittish puppy, and the hosts checked in regularly to ensure we had everything we needed.

The weather didn't cooperate and it rained for a while each morning, but the hosts provided campfire supplies so we were able to warm up in the morning and dry out anything not in the screen house.

The hosts were kind enough to share their local water spots and we had a great time in on the riverbank with nobody around. It felt special.

The only downside if I had to give one is some of the trails they mapped out were overgrown and so halfway through we were bushwacking. The puppy had a blast, though, and got to confront a lot of new things in a fun way. Time and money we'll spent!

Not on the ranch but a cozy local spot recommended by the hosts.Iron Mountain Ranch Screen HouseIron Mountain Ranch Screen HouseIron Mountain Ranch Screen House
