I've driven through Helena a number of times, but never once have I stopped for more than coffee or gas until visiting Norwegian Wood...and I'm so glad I did. Once out of the center of town, the countryside scenery unfolds and takes you along the winding perimeter of Canyon Ferry Lake, Montana's third largest body of water.

As I pulled into Norwegian Wood, I was warmly greeted by Rene and his 6 month old labradoodle, Willow. Rene directed me to my tent and encouraged me to explore the property, telling me where I could find the golf course, the small fishing pond and all the different animals that call the ranch home. The tent was clean and cozy, and you could hear the creek trickling by steps away from the front deck. A trail follows the creek up to a small dam & fishing pond, and my pup Dylan and I enjoyed splashing in the water on the hotter-than-normal afternoon.

Wild turkeys wandered the property, and Dylan and I made frequent visits to the resident mascot, Bacon the pig. Rene was also kind enough to give us a ride on his atv so we could find his Scottish Highland cows (moments after meeting him, I excitedly told him how it was one of my goals to own a mini Scottish Highland one day). As we drove around, I noted how many great camp spots there were with panoramic views of the mountains.

The four glamping tents share an outhouse and a propane-run shower, however you can also use the restroom at the restaurant on-site when it's open. As much as I love a good camp meal, the Highland Bar & Grill is steps away from the tents and serves dinner Wednesdays through Sundays; wine, mussels and steak sure do complement a glamping experience.

With tons of hiking in the Helena National Forest, boating and fishing in nearby Canyon Ferry Lake, golfing on the ranch, the bar & grill, and the center of town not far away, you could really make your experience there as relaxed or active as you wanted it to be. It felt like the perfect place for a little romantic getaway (either with your partner or just solo...cause sometimes you gotta treat yo'self).

I can't wait to go back in the springtime and see the ranch all green and lush...and hopefully with a couple more baby Scottish Highland cows.

Settling into our temporary home.  This porch is perfect for sipping coffee, watching the sun come over the mountains and listening to the creek trickling by. One of the four canvas tents tucked in the trees. Bright, clean and cozy.Hiking in Helena National Forest is right out the front door, and boating and fishing in the beautiful Canyon Ferry Lake is moments down the road.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Norwegian Wood Ranch Glamping sites- our canvas tent was very clean and well put together with everything we needed. There was fresh water, good lighting, trash, and the bed was great. We really enjoyed hanging out at the on site bar/restaurant the night we arrived, as well as exploring the farm during the day (and meeting the Scottish Highland Cows)- Rene the host is really great and a pleasure to chat with.

Rene's place was super cool and very unique. The tent was lovely and comfortable, and the land was beautiful. We were able to grab a beer at the on-site bar when we showed up, and chatted with Rene for a while. He's a great host and they've got an awesome spot!

I LOVED my stay here! I really enjoyed roaming the beautiful land with my dog and a cup of coffee in the morning- the pond and waterfall were my favorite spots. The bed was very comfy and I slept like a rock. Rene has really thought of everything is super friendly, which I appreciated. After doing a lot of camping and driving it was really nice to treat myself to a 'glamping' experience and sleep 'indoors' in a real bed. Would definitely reocomend. :)

We loved Rene and his place! It was the perfect stop for us to stop and spend the night. Upon arriving we met Rene and helped get us all set up. 10/10 would recommend.
