About the property

Newly remodeled 2 bedroom, 1 bath historic log cabin with modern kitchen/bath

Private access to 3/8 mile blue ribbon trout fishing! Enjoy the thrill of catching rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout within steps of the cabin.

Situated near the Beartooth Mountains,13 miles west of Absarokee on the banks of the Stillwater River, guests at The River Cabin at Falcon's Ledge can enjoy a variety of activities including fly and freshwater fishing, day hikes, horseback or ATV riding, whitewater rafting, snorkeling and swimming, in-season hunting and historic scenic drives.

If your goal is rest and relaxation, The River Cabin at Falcon's Ledge offers peace and quiet all around. One can simply sit on the deck with a cool drink in hand (and a fishing pole nearby) watching the Stillwater River as it rushes by in the springtime or glides lazily by in the late summer and fall. There is little ambient light in the area, so stars are aplenty, making for fun nighttime sky viewing all summer!

Located between the rural towns of Absarokee and Nye Montana, this cabin's interior is newly remodeled and updated. Two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with a queen and a single bed offers overnight accommodations to five.

About Donna von Nieda

Kurt and Donna von Nieda moved their family to The River Cabin at Falcon's Ledge in the Stillwater Valley from Washington state. It was always their dream to live in Montana and they have raised three children in The River Cabin. They love the valley, the people and the wildlife in this little bit of 'heaven on earth.'

Donna von Nieda purchased this cabin in 1998

Why Donna von Nieda chose Beartooth Mountains

This property was selected primarily because of its variety of land features. From the 3/8 of a mile of river front to the landmark 'teakettle' rock, this piece of property is ever changing and dramatic.

What makes this cabin unique

One of the best aspects of staying at The River Cabin at Falcon's Ledge is that you get to listen to the soothing sounds and watch the cascade of water flowing by. Couple that with the lilting sounds of birds and wind in the trees, and (at the right time of year) the fragrance of lilacs in the air and you have an experience like none other. With little ambient light and noise, there is a tranquility and sense of peace at The River Cabin that is hard to find nowadays.

Truly an amazing slice of earth. The cabin is clean and homey with upgraded amenities not typically found in vacation rentals. Donna is a treat to work with. Fishing right in front of camp yielded some excellent results. Thank you!

Beautiful cabin right on Stillwater. Great, accommodating owner, terrific location. No real action fly fishing right there, but excellent upstream in the forest section.

Beautiful cabin, immaculately maintained, amazing setting!

  • 5 of 5

Second visit to the cabin and it will not be my last. The cabin sits on a beautiful and very productive stretch of the Stillwater. The furnishings are high quality and the space is extremely comfortable.

The owners are kind, informative and accommodating.

Love this place for many reasons.

End of Summer Memories

  • 5 of 5

There were so many special moments that our party of four will remember for years to come. We delighted in the scenery, the wildlife, and the seclusion of the beautiful river's edge cabin and were especially grateful for the owners' efforts as Kurt and Donna were generous in sharing their time and unique knowledge of the area. The cabin's appliances were top of the line and the washer, dryer, abundant hot water supply, new dishwasher and large refrigerator contributed to our enjoyment during our relaxing 3 week stay. The fishing was amazing and many "big" fish stories will be shared over the long winter months.
