It has three full bathrooms one on each floor. The bathroom upstairs has a jetted Jacuzzi tub, large enough for two, and glass enclosed shower. The other 2 bathrooms are full sized. Our 11 acre Lake provides great swimming, picnicking and fishing.

About the Log House/Cabin: The Log House offers incredible view of The Beartooth Mountain Range, and view of a small pond and year round creek from the living room's large cathedral style windows. On the Ranch there is also a private trout lake, about eleven acres in size, and several beaver ponds. All offer trout fishing to guests and is within easy walking distance for all. If river fishing is what you are after the Stillwater River is only 10 minutes drive, Rosebud Creek the same distance and the Yellowstone River is only 20 minutes drive away. Because of the abundance of water and tree cover this section of land draws wildlife of all kinds. Some wildlife can be seen from the living room's windows as they walk past. Open and accessible all year round. Every season is as beautiful as the next.

Views, Fishing and Wildlife: At the Ranch there are outdoor activities like walking, sightseeing, photography, swimming or fishing at the private lake. The Ranch is a short distance to spectacular hiking trails, mountain biking, white water rafting, kayaking, horseback riding, the famous Beartooth Highway, The route to Yellowstone from the Ranch is breathtakingly beautiful, going over the Beartooth Highway to the Top of the World, then through the historic mining town of Cooke City.

We are next door to Tippet Rise, a 11,500 acre - one of a kind - sculpture park and classical music venue. More information about Tippet Rise at

About Lee and Roxanne Dunn

Lee and Roxanne Dunn enjoy sharing the Log House and Cobblestone House with vacationers while living in another house on the Ranch. Lee and Roxanne grew up in Colorado, and moved to Montana in 1989 and 1992.

Lee and Roxanne Dunn purchased this cabin in 1989

Why Lee and Roxanne Dunn chose Fishtail

Lee and Roxanne were attracted to this area because of a combination of wide open space and mountain views. The section of land that the Ranch is located has a lake and three creeks which are flowing year-round. This makes it special because it draws all sorts of wildlife.

What makes this cabin unique

This log home is modern and comfortable with all the conveniences of home, yet the backdrop is spectacular, with breathtaking views of the Absaroka Beartooth Mountains and wildlife passing by the cathedral style windows and large viewing deck. Guests can enjoy walks in the aspen grove, cottonwoods, grass fields, and creek bottoms. The ranch is a peaceful and a quiet place to stay and one can have as much solitude as you like. But if it is activities that you desire there are plenty of those on the ranch and nearby. Another added benefit, is the peace of mind knowing that the Ranch's owners lives on the ranch in a separate house within walking distance to the Log House, and can assist guests, if needed.

Very nice place to stay, clean, quiet and plenty of room for all.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful.... The home was large, comfortable and very clean. The property was beautiful and the farm animals are a nice touch. The wildlife was all over and having your morning coffee on the huge deck overlooking the mountains doesn't get any better. It was a perfect match for our large group of people and would not hesitate to stay there again.

Perfect, relaxing, fun place

  • 5 of 5

There were 14 of us coming from all over the US for an 80th birthday party in Nye & we wanted to stay together. This place was perfect! It was very fun seeing the goats & chickens & feeding the pigs. It was very peaceful & the owners were amazing! There were beautiful rainbows & sunsets & we took a tour of the property-beautiful. We would definitely stay there again! Thank you for the wonderful time!

Exceptional and Lovely

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the White Deer Ranch was simply outstanding. We came to the Red Lodge area to ski, but after arriving at the Ranch we were all reluctant to leave the endless opportunity to enjoy nature and explore the outdoors that was right in front of us. The constant presence of wildlife, majestic views and opportunity for solitude and quiet was unbeatable. When there, you must allow time with the owners to learn of the history of White Deer Ranch, and to experience a small taste of everything that is their life. The Log Home was wonderfully rustic with the feel of being built out of love and timber, with just the right amount of modernity to feel luxurious. In short, wherever you are traveling from, making the journey simply to be here and do nothing else is worth every minute! Our family's thanks to Lee and Roxanne for allowing us the opportunity to create found memories in such a phenomenal place!

Great home in a great location with a great value.

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect place for our large group. It had plenty of room for all of us. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen (and entire house) was stocked with everything we needed. We had such a fun time, and this home completely accommodated us.

Couples Weekend Away!!!

  • 5 of 5

We planned a couples weekend away with friends (14 people total) and were fortunate enough to find Roxanne and Lee's log home and cottage. The setting was beautiful, quiet and just far enough "off the beaten path" that you were able to get away from the "rat race", but still close enough to Red Lodge that we were able to do some skiing one of the days. The log house was even nicer than we anticipated and everyone was comfortable and had their own queen bed. The place had everything we needed to make a nice dinner or breakfast. If you need it, Roxanne has likely already thought of it and already has it there. Plently of towels, chairs, tables, plates, utensils, etc for a large group. The living area and kitchen were open and perfect for accomadating our large group. Finally, I must say that Roxanne was so helpful, thoughtful and courteous during the whole process... beginning to end. We hope to make this at least an annual event and many of the couples talked about reserving this when their family and friends come to visit from out of state. All that is to say that we HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone who wants a comfortable place to stay, but needs some space for family or friends. In my opinion, you won't be disappointed.

PS - They left us the best homemade honey... what a treat!

The ranch is off of Grove Creek Road and Davidson Creek Road approximately 6 miles from Absarokee and 8 miles from Fishtail, Montana. The ranch is only a 2.5 hour drive to Yellowstone Park. A day-trip can easily be made to the Livingston or Cooke City/Red Lodge entrance. The drive through Red Lodge to the Park is one of the most scenic in the U.S. over the Beartooth Highway.

We are next door to Tippet Rise Art Center, which opened in June of 2016. It is a 11,500 acre sculpture and classical music venue. To find out more go to
