About the property

Cute, cottage style house on 450 acres.

Two bedrooms, each with a queen sized bed. One full-sized bathroom with tub and shower combination.

The houses, barns, corrals and outbuildings are in a cluster at the center of the 450 acre Ranch. The Lake is an easy quarter mile walk from the house. The house has homesteader history too.

The Cobblestone is charming, comfortable and ready for a family of 4 or a romantic couples get-away. The house is one level. There is also a separate office with desk and chair.

Please Note: There is a Log Home 50 yards away also available for rental, sleeps 12.

About the Cobblestone House:

Walk anywhere you like on the 450 acre Ranch or just relax, relax, relax. On the Ranch there is a private trout lake, about eleven acres in size, several beaver ponds and three year-round live creeks. The lakes and ponds 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. Wildlife is often spotted walking through the Ranch, and photographic opportunities are abound!

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 a 11,500 acre unique sculpture park and classical music venue called Tippet Rise Art Center.

About Lee and Roxanne Dunn

Lee and Roxanne Dunn enjoy sharing the Log House and Cobblestone House with vacationers while living in year-round in another house on the Ranch. Lee and Roxanne grew up in Colorado, and both moved to Montana in 1989 and 1992 respectively. The Ranch is chemical free and everything is grown according to organic standards. We forage many edible and medicinal wild plants.

Lee and Roxanne Dunn purchased this cottage in 1989

Why Lee and Roxanne Dunn chose Beartooth Mountains

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 cottage unique

The vacation homes on the Ranch are up to date with all the comforts of home, yet the backdrop is spectacular, with breathtaking views of the Absaroka Beartooth Mountains and wildlife passing near the houses. 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 and can assist guests, if needed.

We are next door to Tippet Rise Art Center, a 11,500 acre - one of a kind - sculpture park and classical music venue. See for more information.

The Cobblestone has interesting features only found in a historic home. If you would enjoy a sense of history while at the same modern conveniences, then this is the place for you. The floor makes a creaking sound when you walk on the hardwood, there is a bow in the kitchen floor as it is the oldest part of the house. There is no dishwasher, however, a drying rack and dish drying towels are provided. We love the original farm style sink which allows for the authentic experience of early Montana ranching days. We provide pellets for the decorative glass front stove, with lighting instructions, if needed. The house is all one level there is one step to come up in order to get into the house. Inside doorways may not be wide enough for some wheel chairs. Most of the sights, including the lake can be driven to, however, we would prefer you walk if it is muddy so as not to leave deep ruts in the paths around the Ranch.

Absolutely Charming and Tranquil Place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at White Deer Ranch. The cobblestone house is a charming traditional farmhouse, that provides one with the feel of old time farming, but with all the modern comfort and conveniences of the present. We spent much time in our front yard communing with the kitties, the goats and the chickens roaming the property. We ate from our host's vegetable garden and took fresh laid eggs for breakfast everyday.

Roxanne and Lee have worked hard to create a truly interesting working farm. On our farm tour, we saw the many ways in which they are attempting to be good stewards of the land and their animals. An avid gardener myself, I learned a heap walking through Roxanne's garden.

Can't recommend this place enough.

Quiet, relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, if out of the way, place to stay. Lots of animals, wild and domestic, so be careful when driving here! We saw tons of deer, several pairs of cranes as well as the cats, chickens, goats and cows that belong to the farm. Comfortable beds, everything provided, nice antique furniture and cozy, welcoming appeal.

Peace & quiet - just what we were looking for. Roxanne and Lee were very gracious hosts.

  • 5 of 5

This place had everything we needed to enjoy our vacation. This was our first trip to Montana and it won't be our last. The vast rolling hills, fresh air, and wonderful food was enough to make us want to stay permanently. Roxanne and Lee are wonderful people and they do a great job of making you feel right at home.

The Cobblestone house was furnished with any and everything you needed. The view from the old farmhouse sink was all I needed every morning to make me happy - well that and a cup of coffee. The house is furnished w/ many antiques and it makes you feel like you are taking a trip back in time. My husband and I loved the farm animals greeting us every morning (chickens, goats, turkeys, and cats) and feeding them our scraps left over from the night before.

My husband and I stayed at the Cobblestone house w/ the intention of visiting Yellowstone most of our stay. Turns out the Fishtail and Absarokee (Custer National Park) area have lots of great trails to hike so we spent most of our time doing just that. We took one day off from hiking and visited a great little town called Red Lodge. If you happen to visit Red Lodge don't miss out on Mas Tacos. I consider myself a Mexican Food connoisseur and this was hands down the best Mexican food I have ever eaten. It's only too bad we discovered it on our last day.

If you are thinking of visiting the area I would highly recommend it and definitely stay w/ Roxanne and Lee at the Cobblestone House.

Rustic Charm

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved the house we rented in Montana. Our girls loved the goats and chickens. The house was rustic and quaint. It really enhanced our Montana experience. The fresh eggs and honey were awesome too.

A true ranch with the excitement of animals and the beauty of nature

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was everything we expected and more. Lee and Roxanne's hospitality was warm and welcoming. The cobblestone house provided everything we needed for comfort and happiness. The views are something to be missed and deeply desired once you leave this magical ranch.
