Two bedrooms available in a 2012 remodeled cottage located just south of Columbus, MT off Highway 78. Home was built in the 1950's and attached to a historic log cabin which has been transformed into an adorable, spacious bedroom with a queen sized bed and plenty of closet space. There is a second bedroom, also with a queen sized bed along with one bathroom and vanity with a raised sink. The kitchen has stainless appliances, alder cabinets and an open concept to dining and living creating a space for gathering and conversation. There is a washer and dryer located in the garage. This cottage is located next door to our family home on a dead end road. Views of the Beartooth Mountains.

Easy access off I-90 for travelers heading to the east coast or west coast. It is 3 miles from the I-90 exit. Great base for trips to Red Lodge, Yellowstone National Park, hiking and fishing in Beartooth Mountains whether you are visiting family or friends. Conveniently located between Billings ( 40 minutes) and Bozeman (1 hour and 20 minutes) along I-90. Recreation abounds along the Yellowstone and Stillwater Rivers within minutes of accesses to these rivers and trail heads for fishing, rafting, kayaking, paddle boarding, tubing and trail rides with the local professionals or as an experienced adventurer.

Columbus is the Stillwater County seat and offers local grocery shopping as well as retail shopping and several restaurants that serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. The proximity and accessibility to hunting, hiking and fishing is plentiful. Our location lends to easy commute to Columbus or Absarokee, Montana if you are visiting family in the area as well.

Love the close proximity to the Stillwater and Yellowstone Rivers, National Forest accesses and Red Lodge Mountain in the winter time. For cross country travelers the ease off I 90 is paramount to saving time for those that are traveling late or rising early to get on with your journey.

Everything was great as always! This is our go to place to stay anytime we are in that area. Everything is clean, there is a great kitchen for cooking and I love that there is an area to work out in. This place is so comfortable and has everything you can need. Joyce and her family give you plenty of privacy but are always there if you need them and are very nice.

Joyce's cabin has all the conveniences of being at home in a rustic country setting. It is perfect for a headquarters for exploring eastern Montana!

I loved staying at Joyce's place! We ended up there 3 times this summer and every time we loved it! We had everything we needed, I loved cooking in that kitchen and everything is always so clean. Joyce and her husband are so nice and we felt very comfortable. We would definitely go back!

As the first stop of our cross country move, this place was perfect for our needs. It was easy to access from the main highway, yet quiet and secluded. House was clean, bed was comfortable, kitchen had everything we needed, and there was enough room to let our critters run around after a very long, hot day in the truck. Highly recommend this place for anyone driving through Montana!

What an amazing place! We drove all night on our road trip from NYC to Montana and this was our last stop before hitting Bozeman. What a comfortable place to land after an exhausting drive. The cottage was beautiful with new and modern bathroom and kitchen and plenty of food/toiletries for guest use. There was a grocery store just a 7-minute drive away so we could stock up on stuff we didn't have. The bedrooms were comfortable and clean and the atmosphere was inviting and peaceful. Would definitely stay again if I have the opportunity.

We take and love family and friends over anything material. A couple years ago we purchased the cottage next to us so we really are at the end of the road. We envision sharing it with travelers to God's Country and our kids when they come to visit. Our location is just about perfect. We enjoy waking up to views of the Beartooth Mountains looking south down the Stillwater River Valley as well as the wildlife in the woods looking north into the Yellowstone Valley.
