Description

Premier fly fishing retreat on the Big Hole River between Dillon and Butte.
The property has a quarter mile of direct access to the Big Hole River, and incredible privacy on 15 acres.
This is a historic one room cabin that’s had the addition of two bedrooms and a full bath, turning it into a charming vacation home.
This home has internet and a cell phone booster.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION: Big Hole Canyon Ranch is a fisherman’s dream. Out the door is access to the Big Hole River, a fisherman’s boat launch less than half a mile away, and a pond (not stocked) just off the deck all make for a great experience. The ranch’s beautiful hand-hewn log cabin has a rustic western feel but is appointed with top quality amenities and furnishings and is a very comfortable home base. Located on 15 acres in Maiden Rock Canyon this is both a prime fishing property and a great family or romantic retreat. Guests enjoy hiking and exploring on the property and on the adjoining Beaverhead Deerlodge National Forest.

GENERAL LOCATION: The cabin is five miles north of Melrose, Montana easily accessed by taking Interstate 15 south from Butte or north from Dillon. The property borders the Big Hole River.

BEDROOMS AND BATHS: There are two comfortable bedrooms, one with a queen size bed, the other with two double beds. Great mattresses and high quality linens will make it hard to get up in the morning! There is additional sleeping space on a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. The cabin has one full bathroom with a stall shower.

KITCHEN & DINING ROOM: The small kitchen is fully equipped, with high quality appliances including a gas range, coffee maker, microwave oven, a full size fridge, blender and all the cookware and serving ware that you’ll need. There is a dining table for four but where you’ll probably want to take your meals is outside on the wonderful deck overlooking the pond.

LIVING ROOM: The charmingly rustic living room has a beautiful rock hearth with gas fireplace and a sofa with a pullout sleeper. There is a flat screen TV and a selection of DVDs to enjoy (but no TV reception in the canyon), a boom box for CDs, an iPod dock, and a good selection of books and board games.

OUTDOOR AMENITIES: Guests will find a built-in stone fire pit and plenty of outdoor furniture on the porch, a gas grill for barbecues, and Adirondack chairs and stone benches out by the pond and river. The river is just out the back door. The views are of natural, wild hillsides. Not another house or light in sight! For summer 2016 they'll also be adding an outdoor shower. (Note: The train goes through the canyon, across the river from the cabin, so you’ll see that go by a couple of times a day and the pond is no longer stocked).
ACTIVITIES NEARBY: Fishing on the Big Hole River! You can launch a boat upstream and take out is just a stone’s throw downstream from the cabin at Maiden Rock. Because this take out is just downstream from the cabin, the only fishing boats you see going by are in late afternoon. The rest of the day the river out front is yours! The famed Beaverhead, Ruby, and Wise Rivers are also an easy day trip for fishermen. Enjoy walks on the property and on adjoining public land, and visits to local historic sites. For rock climbers, Humbug Spires is just a few miles away.

CLOSEST TOWN AND AIRPORT: Grocery stores in Butte and Dillon are 27 and 35 miles away respectively. Butte is the closest airport, with Helena, Bozeman, Idaho Falls and Missoula also being good options.

Extraordinary place! We loved everything about this place....the house, the impressive ease of working with mountain home, the location, the river, the fishing...Our only complaint is not being able to stay longer. Plan to go back!!

Honestly, this was the most incredible vacation ever. Our tranquility started the second we got off the freeway on Moose Creek. The closer we got to the cabin, the more we smiled. The kids loved the pond and river, the dogs loved the vast land, and my wife and I loved the early morning briskness drinking coffee outside with the beautiful, scenic water and mountain views. We had the pleasure of meeting the caretakers Joan & Shawn, both are amazing people and Shawn shared a plethora of knowledge/history of the area. This cabin let us enjoy each others company, rather than the technology we are all addicted to. We will 100% be back, again and again.
Hello Hallocks - We just love it that you loved Big Hole Canyon Ranch. The experience that you had is exactly what we hope our guests will feel. And we hope that you DO come back again...and soon! - MH Staff

We formerly lived in Butte and during that time I was associated with the Big Hole River Foundation and the Big Watershed Committee so, were very familiar with the Big Hole Valley. Its a place we love. The cabin is perfect and located in the Heart of the River - far enough above the Bridge and river access to feel very secluded. The home is comfortable, great access to the River and landscaped very well. We would own this if we could because its the perfect place in a perfect place
Hi Charles - 'A perfect place in a perfect place". I think you hit the nail on the head. We're happy that you enjoyed your stay and we hope you can visit again soon. - MH Staff

Everything was superb! Great location! Great townhome! Had everything, and then some, that you needed. Would recommend it to anyone. Only thing I would have preferred was air conditioning. It did get a little warm during the day. We were there when it got up to 80's and 90's.
Hello Jeannine - Thanks for your kind words about your stay with us at Blue Pine Cone. Mountain Home tires very hard to offer great homes and great service! We're sorry to hear that it was anything but 100% comfortable on those warm days. There are so few homes in this area that have AC, and typically just closing blinds during the day does the trick when we're at the warmest time of year. Thank you again for staying with us and we hope to see you again soon. - MH Staff

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Big Hole Canyon Ranch. It is a little cozy log cabin in a great place. The beds were comfortable, it was quiet, and we got great sleep. The furnishings are high end and top notch. We visited by the fire (handy gas fireplace) in the evenings. We floated the river and caught several brown trout over 20 inches (in addition to smaller ones). We even floated a pack raft in the pond. This is a very special place. We are grateful to have found it and we thank the owners and Mountain Home Vacation Rentals for a very relaxing memorable weekend.
Thank you for the kind words James! We are delighted you all enjoyed your time with us, and WOW 20in trout, how great is that!? We can't wait to host you all again soon! -MH Staff
