Nestled between tall evergreens and situated against the Swan Mountain Range of the Northern Rockies, sits this lovely craftsman style “Retreat Center.” This unique Arts and Crafts style structure accommodates small families or couples on destination vacations, family reunions, unique experiences, and/or 4 day retreats.
We invite people to retreat from their every day lives into the wilderness and forested sanctuary we have created at the foot of the Swan Mountain Range. We encourage our guests to unplug from their urban lives so that they might reconnect with their best selves, their loved ones and their source of inspiration. Our natural sanctuary is ideal for reflection and introspection and to reset intentions for answering your soul’s calling. We're especially interested in providing a peaceful and inspirational space for those pursuing creative projects and a desire to connect with the natural world and to one another.
This Retreat Center provides three spacious private bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, an entry foyer, and a very large great room. Originally built as a yoga room, the great room boasts wood floors, a stone fireplace, and beautiful craftsman style windows with huge views of alpine glowing mountains. Guests will also enjoy a fully equipped gourmet kitchen. Two full bathrooms include showers and a two person size sunken tub in the master bath. There is a laundry room with a sink, counter, washer and dryer attached to the smallest bedroom. From the great room and master bedroom, there is access to a large covered patio to enjoy outside dining with incredible panoramic views of the mountains. Beyond the porch is a large lawn and pathway to our waterfall studded pond. Wireless Internet service (the fastest in our area via a dedicated transmitter tower) and online streamed Netflix movies are also available to guests on two large flat screened television sets (1 in master bedroom and 1 in great room).
On the same property, a few steps away, there is an additional guest house we call the Treehouse (see VRBO listing #470944) that accommodates up to 2 adults and 2 children.
Directly behind the property, guests will find immediate access to mountain trails they may access with a State Land day use permit. And just a minutes drive away there is access to rafting put-ins along the Swan River. Guests are also invited to share the beautiful surrounding grounds, a lovely waterfall studded pond, tree swings, hammocks, and mountain bike trails. Our nine year old son is a wonderful little host and loves to show visiting children all the cool things this property has to offer, especially hunting for Morels in May. Guests may also like to visit with our goats, chickens, and special livestock guardian dogs (just beware of the electric fence), and to sample our fresh eggs. To avoid any conflict with our guardian and companion dogs, and to avoid predation by wildlife, we do not allow dogs or other pets onto our property.
We are offering a special Family Connections Package for families looking for a uniquely connective Montana experience, which combines outdoor adventure, wilderness survival skills, deep nature connection, and methods to open up family communication and strengthen connections between family members.
