Cliff's Cabin - authentic Montana retreat


A totally authentic Montana sweet retreat in a convenient location

Room TypeRoom type
Entire home/apt

Tucked into the woods at the end of the road just 13 minutes from the heart of town, this cabin is a treasure. Cliff built the place himself; each tree sawn on his tractor-powered sawmill. We added family antiques, new mattresses and original art (lotsa comfort and love). The covered porch is high in the trees with breathtaking views 1000 feet above the Yellowstone River. A stellar location, you will be hard-pressed to find a more memorable authentic cabin experience during your Montana travels Cliff was the stuff of legend; a barrel chested mountain man with a heart of gold and a zen-like deep-souled connection to nature. The cabin has power, running water, bath, shower and a full kitchen. The loft has a king size power adjustable bed and the "Powder Room" has a full size bed. Both beds are topped with hand stitched comforters and cozy linens. The secluded cabin was built onto the side of a mountain above town. You can watch squirrels scamper on the ground outside the bathroom window yet the living room and porch at the front of the cabin sit high off the ground in the trees. Through the tree tops the view is surrounded by sky with the Yellowstone River below and the Crazy Mountains beyond. Sunrises and sunsets are spectacular from this nest of a home in the trees. The fifty foot porch has a BBQ grill, a dining area and a lounge area complete with a fire pit to cozy around and view an endlessly star-filled "Big Sky Country" sky (especially delightful as we do not have the distraction of light pollution). Nights are considerably cooler up here in the forest 1000 feet above Livingston, a welcome respite during the warmer summer months. Cliff's cabin is in it's own neck of the woods, easy to access and private. You will find plenty of forest and a few trails to explore. A big horned owl and its mate have been hanging around Cliff’s cabin - you may hear them hoot at night and in the mornings. Although we live on the property, you will not see our home. We enjoy people but we do not want to disturb the beauty of quietude which Cliff's cabin offers our guests. Simply let us know the level of interaction you desire. You may check-in on your own. We are accessible by phone and will let you know if we are out-of-town at the time of your booking. My art studio is visible from the road to Cliff's cabin but our home and Granny's cabin are totally out of view at opposite ends of our forty-four acre property. Just ask us if you would like to have a studio tour. We are happy to answer questions and meet your needs. Let us know how we can make your stay dreamier. Even locals are blown away by the unique views and total mountain woodsy experience our property offers just four miles from the heart of downtown. Deer, elk, moose, bears, mountain lions, rabbits, game birds and songbirds are part of our neighborhood. Our mountainside retreat protects us from the infamous "Livingston wind" and offers scenic views of the Bridgers, the Crazies and the Absaroka Mountains. You will see the Yellowstone river gleam at sunrise in the valley below (two fishing accesses are only 10 minutes away). Yellowstone Park is a 45-minute drive up Paradise Valley. Bozeman is just 25 minutes away. Livingston has exceptional dining, wining, bakeries and breweries (we've authored a booklet for you with local suggestions). While the twinkling lights of town can be viewed from many places on our spacious property, Cliff's cabin is tucked into the trees; shady yet plenty of sunlight. Lovely walks and longer hikes are accessible right from your door but of course the river and valley offer limitless adventures. We are outdoor enthusiasts happy to offer advice based on your adventure level and site-seeing preferences. The turnoff to our place is one mile south of Albertsons grocery at Highway 89. Two and a half miles of maintained gravel road ends at our property. You will be able to access Cliff's Cabin by car in the summertime. Front-wheel or four-wheel-drive is recommended early spring and late fall due to the elevation gain and possibility of snow off-season. Our little dog Tala is often at the studio with me. She takes her job as "greeter" seriously and let's me know when someone drives by. We are open to pets but please let us know in advance.
