Our incredibly cozy/homey, fully self-contained 1100 sq.ft. private rural retreat sits in the middle of 20 lush acres bordering US Forest Service land & is just minutes from Lost Trail Powder skiing, fishing, lakes & hiking. It has the rustic quintessential Montana vibe & 360 degree views of mountains, pine trees and horse pasture. It features a queensized log bed with super comfy mattress, pullout couch bed, Franklin style gas fireplace, full Kitchen, bathtub/shower, WIFI, skylights & HD TV
It's a very large space with excellent views of mountains, pastures, trees and domestic and wild critters from all four sides
Fully equipped kitchen and full bathroom with a tub/shower. We are only 5 minutes from Bitterroot River fishing access, a half hour from lakes in two different directions, 35 minutes north of Lost Trail Powder Mountain Ski area, and direct access to forest service land with endless miles of hiking trails and roads. We are 1.5 hours South of the airport in Missoula and 1.5 hours North of Salmon, ID. We also have a new hot tub on the back deck of the main house. The views from the hot tub are magnificent! FOR YOU DOGGY PEOPLE: WE NOW HAVE A LARGE 12 X 14 DOG KENNEL ATTACHED TO THE GUEST HOUSE :-)
Interaction with guests
As often as our guests like or need interaction. I'm usually at my desk working, however, my husband Jim loves to socialize, if you do too. :-)
Other things to note
We welcome you to visit www dot halfab(URL HIDDEN) for more details on our home, family and the Bitterroot Valley
Please keep dogs on a leash if the chickens are out free roaming. Also, please do not let the dogs get on the furniture; the hair is extremely hard to clean up.
Wi-Fi gigabytes are very limited in our rural area, therefore, no videos, movies or heavy downloading/uploading please. Data overages will put the account into data restriction status which will affect other guests
Thank you in advance for observing our house rules.
Jim and I (Donna) have lived on our ranch in Darby, MT, for 11 years with our son Dean, now 16, and a multitude of critters; 6 horses, 4 (fenced) dogs, 2 cats, and 32 chickens. We enjoy horseback riding, skiing and riding bikes. Donna is a self-employed mortgage broker and Jim is a rancher, producer, arranger, and musician...we both work out of our home and are usually available.
