We have stayed here a couple of times and have always had no problem rating it 5 stars. This stay, I would have to rate it at 3.5 stars due to the overuse of scented products, otherwise it would be another 5 star stay. There was an odor when we walked in but we didn't think anything of it at 1st. It turned out to be coming from the pantry where the 3 bins, plus another 2 bins worth, of cleaning products are stored. Everything was scented, even the Swiffer Sweeper refills. The next day, we left to get groceries and left the windows open because it was a cool day. When we got back, we could smell all those cleaning products in the pantry when we got within a foot of the front porch. We ended up bagging everything in heavy duty garbage bags and putting a bowl of white vinegar in the pantry to help absorb the odors. The bed was the worst though. We had been there a few hours and I gave the pillows a sniff and got an instant runny nose and migraine. I've never been particularly sensitive to scent, I can spend time in laundry product and air freshener aisles with no problem at stores. I ended up stripping the bed but the smell had soaked through the bedding and into the mattresses. I found a sheet, blanket, and 2 pillows in the closet that didn't have the scent on it and tried to get bedding washed before bed. I was spraying the mattress with something to try to get rid of the odor but, once we went to bed, our body heat caused a fresh release of the odor. Even after taking 2 kinds of allergy meds and Advil, I couldn't breathe laying in bed and I felt like my eardrums were going to pop. I had to put coffee beans in my pillow case to help cover up enough of the smell to get a few hours of exhaustion-induced sleep. It took several days but I was able to get enough of the smell removed from the bed to be able to get some decent sleep. The washing of the bedding went badly for a day or so. Even running the bedding through 4 or 5 times with just plain water, there was always some soap residue left in the washer. I have a front loader so I decided to see if there was soap stuck in the seal. No soap but I cleaned a lot of slime and mildew out of the seal. I would include pictures but I’m not getting that option. I also pulled out the soap/bleach/softener dispenser to clean and found a 1.5-2" ball of soap powder/fabric softener stuck under the dispenser. Every time the washer pulled water through the dispenser, it was adding a little soap so the laundry was never actually being rinsed clean. Once I got that cleaned out, it took 2-3 washes without soap for a load of sheets to not leave a soap residue and 5 washes without soap for towels and blankets. The bedding smell was due to a brand new fabric softener scent being used for our stay. The housekeeper had my husband sniff it to see if that was the scent that was so strong and he developed an immediate runny nose and migraine from sniffing the bottle. The bedding is also sprayed with another scented product after drying. The housekeeper was fabulous though and made sure we had a comforter and tried to do everything she could to take care of the problem. I also let her know how to clean the washer to prevent the problems I found and to leave the washer door and dispenser open after doing the last load. The amount of mildew and slime from the seal had to have accumulated over a period of many, many, many months. Once we got the odor issue under control, which involved finding an almost impossible to find odor neutralizer that was unscented, the stay was a 5 star one. The housekeeper even leaves fresh baked chocolate chip cookies on check-in day. The house was the cleanest we have seen it, which is not easy with all the dust and bugs. I would love to see the housekeeper provided with more unscented cleaning products. So many places are recognizing that people may have sensitivities, aversions, or allergies (including very severe allergies) to scents that it was surprising to see how many different scented cleaners and products were being used here. The house smelled great after we got most of the scents neutralized - like hay and clean, fresh air, it was a shame that it was being covered up with so many scents. We would also like warn guests about the people who are doing gopher control for the ranch. We saw a local honey company truck out every Friday shooting gophers with a .22 rifle, sounded like .22 Hornet ammunition. Shooting gophers with a .22 rifle is common. But they were sitting in their honey truck, parked right on or slowly driving down the county road, illegally shooting. Sometimes they were shooting across the road. When we were 1st getting there, we almost got shot when they pulled off the road, leaving room for us to get by, then stuck a rifle out the window and shot across the road when we were even with the back of their truck - another 1-2 seconds and we would have had a bullet go through our vehicle. The 1st year we stayed there, the 2 people who were doing gopher control would park on ranch property and shoot from outside the vehicle. It was also interesting seeing water spraying out of the main lines in spots where there were no leaks before the honey guys came through shooting our 2nd Friday there. I would definitely stay again but would make sure I bring plenty of scent-free odor neutralizing products with me just in case.
Won't stay anywhere else in Montana again!

Stayed for the first time in August and plan to come back next year. The cabin is amazing! From breakfast on the enclosed porch to watching the wildlife in the evening, we couldn't have asked for a nicer home away from home. The privacy of the ranch was perfect, and waking up to the views of the Ruby Valley and Tobacco Root Mountains was spectacular. Can't wait til our next trip! We travel with our dog, (Labrador Retriever) , and he had a great time also. Also a big thumbs up to Mountain Home Vacation rentals for their outstanding customer service.

The setting, quality of cabin, awesome house keeping, and the extraordinary extent to which the cabin was stocked with necessary supplies were all such nice surprises. Your cabin was the finest vacation rental I have ever enjoyed. The antelope grazing in the cabin yard! Better than good.

Thank you for the review. We are all dog lovers at Mountain Home but a reminder to future guests traveling with pets that you do need to ask for approval and pay a $70 pet fee per dog.

We have stayed in the same cabin 2 years in a row. When we drive up at night it is lit up for us, warm, and so cozy. It has all the amenities you need for a week stay including a great kitchen, pots, pans, washer & dryer, you name it. If you are there in the winter, the floors are nice and warm so you feel so cozy even on a snowy day. We absolutely LOVE it there and plan to go again every year.

This was our 2nd stay here in 2 years, both stays lasted 12 nights or more. The Property: Accessed via a dirt road, has a dirt driveway, surrounded by the ranch property. There is a small watered lawn area, with gophers and rabbits, and sits next to the irrigation ditch. You can see a couple of houses but they are far enough away that you have plenty of privacy. Your nearest neighbors are antelope, deer, and cows. Being so far from any pavement and surrounded by hay fields means it cools off quickly once the sun goes down, even if it's 100 degrees that day. The Cabin: Very clean, well-stocked kitchen, fairly comfortable albeit tall bed, plenty of towels, covered front porch, and a screened in front porch to allow you to sit outside and not be eaten alive by mosquitoes. We have never had to buy anything but food while staying here. A small selection of spices, flour, and sugar has always been in the cabin.

We chose this cabin to get away for my husband's 50th birthday and we could have not have been happier with our choice. On arrival, the cabin was pristine. It was wonderful to wake up to the beautiful views to the front and back of the property, and relax on the porch; this place quickly felt like home. The pictures do not do the cabin justice; it was simply but elegantly furnished, roomy with high ceilings, and no detail was overlooked; dishes and cookware were higher-end and in good condition. We also appreciated the environmentally green cleaning products and the organic shampoo and shower gel. In the August heat the cabin did not get overly warm and cooled down significantly at night because of the numerous windows. We did bring our own table fan as well for sleeping overnight. Kristen (Management) was extremely responsive and helpful with any questions or concerns, gathering pamphlets and maps for us that were left in the cabin to make our stay more enjoyable. You are pretty much on your own, so this place is for the independent traveler. However, phone numbers were left in case we needed anything. We enjoyed being "off the grid"; there is fairly fast wifi if you need to connect with the real world. The location is extremely quiet but close to the highway, which was convenient for the several day trips we did. There is much to do in this location and our regret is that we didn't stay longer; though that gives us an excuse to return! Improvements we'd like to see are a luggage rack and a larger set of drawers. Also a bread knife and a sharper pair of scissors would make the kitchen perfect.
