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.
Lee and Roxanne Dunn purchased this Cottage 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 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 www.tippetrise.org for more information.

We drove all the way from Pittsburgh, PA, and it was worth it. We had a wonderful time in this house and on a farm. The house is full of charm and details that we enjoyed, and it is very clean. It had everything we needed and more. We did not need to but any paper towels, toilet paper, soaps or anything like that. It was all provided. The kitchen was stocked with every spice imaginable. The best part is: the house is cold when it is hot outside, and warm when it is cold outside!!! There are 4 cats at the property, and I loved petting and feeding them. The lake is short walk away and we used it almost every day. Like a private heaven on earth.
If you like nature and rustic houses and cows and cats and swimming and good meat, this is a place for you!
I love every minute of it.
My family and I can from Texas to see the mountains. We stayed here for 4 days and loved every minute of it. It was the best and most relaxing 4 days ever. Thank you!!!
Relaxing Ranch with a beautiful view.
This is a lovely property. Peaceful, beautiful and close to town. The house is well equipped and gives you a feel for the local history. The lake is pristine and has migrating and breeding ducks and geese. The ranch meadows are full of beautiful wild flowers. If you want to see Montana at it's best this is a place to go.
Loved the Cobblestone house...peaceful, quiet, comfy cozy. One of the cleanest & best stocked homes we've stayed in. Although we didn't get to meet our hosts, it was obvious they know the meaning of hospitality. I enjoyed painting on the enclosed porch (great light) while hubby did his woodcarving on the outside bench facing the mountains. Highly recommended! P.S.--the free jar of honey was a great gift..and sooooo good. Thank you.
Montana getaway at a ranch in the foothills that allows you time to see our beautiful earth
The cottage is part of a ranch hidden in the hills of Montana. It is a great place to escape to if you want to spend time with your friends or family members, getting reacquainted.
We used greens from the garden to make salads and raw honey to make dressings. We explored the hills, watched the deer and wild turkey in the yard, and sat on the bench overlooking the vast hills of Montana.
The house is fully stocked with all of the necessities, the beds are inviting, and the kitchen has a table that invites you to sit and enjoy the company.
We will definitely return!
We loved the Cobblestone House and the ranch.
We loved the property and had a nice stay. The turkeys were waiting at our front door when we arrived. Especially liked the walk to and around the lake.
