Local Attractions in The Bitterroot Valley

Community Events

Fun and recreation available here in Montana is limited only by ones imagination … whitewater rafting, hiking trails, mountain biking, hunting, swimming, star gazing, ATV or photography …

Horseback riding is available a short distance away, as well as whitewater rafting. Many trails will take the hiker into mountain lakes or mountain peaks. There are also ATV and Snow-mobile trails.

We would be happy to assist our guests in arranging for locally available day activities or to make recommendations on where to go and what to do. The Bitterroot Valley Chamber has a Calendar of Events you may view here –> Calendar of Events

If you are seeking solitude, the quietness is perfect for rest and relaxation, a good book or writing that novel.

From our cabins the smell of pine in the air winds past like the streams along the foot paths to sights and sounds of the National Forest wildlife. The National Forest is boarding 3 sides of our 200 acre working ranch with a trail head out the back door. Relaxing on the deck with a cup of coffee you will hear birds singing and the rustle of life. Take a deep breath and enjoy your stay.
