About the property

Cabin In The Wildwood

Tucked away from the busyness of life & nestled between the ponderosa pine & aspen trees sits; Cabin In The Wildwood. Only 1/4 mile walk from the Bitterroot River, this one room cabin might be all you need to regain your peace of mind from the whirlwind of life. This simple & rustic, but warmly cozy cabin will take you back to a time where life was much more simple. A place where farm life meets the wild life, and all you have to do is watch. And, the newly built log cabin is complete with many windows to see it happen all around you! A queen sized log canopy bed & full sized futon both with linens is where you will rest at the end of a busy (or not so busy) day enjoying the wonderfullness of our beautiful Bitterroot Valley and all she has to offer.

We are located approximately half way between Darby & Missoula, a straight shot north or south on Hwy 93. The Bitterroot Mountains to the west and the Sapphire Mountains to the east. A gorgeous drive you won't soon forget! Five miles from the cabin you are at Kootenai Creek trailhead, a breathtaking hike through the rocky mountains alongside freshwater waterfalls that are the Kootenai Creek. Only two miles from shopping and restaurants in Stevensville; where Montana first began! St. Mary's Mission, Blacksmith & Wildwood Breweries, Creamery Picnic, Mission Bistro, & Maries Italian Restaurant are just a few places and events to experience while lodging at Cabin In The Wildwood.

The cabin is complete with a small range with oven, sink, fridge & microwave. Dishes, pots and pans, flatware & glasses are available along with a BBQ if you feel like dinning in. A fireplace & extra blankets will be provided in case the Montana evenings are a bit more chilly than you were expecting. Summer month temps can get to 100, but its very rare. One thing you can always count on: it WILL cool off in the evenings.

The Cabin In The Wildwood is a dry cabin, but only a short walk across the grass greets you with a private outside entrance to a full bath in the main home complete with fresh towels and hot water! A casual 1/4 mile walk leads you to a private 5 acre "park". Owned jointly with the surrounding landowners, sits on the edge of our beautiful, & bountiful Bitterroot river.

Wake up to the sounds of numerous birds that make the wildwood their home. Watch the deer, elk or moose make their way to water each day as they travel through the woods on the property's southern border. A bear & mountain lion have also been known to visit, however I have only witnessed the bear! Cabin in the Wildwood could easily be the Bitterroots "best kept secret" .... it could also be yours!

About Owner/Manager

My love affair with the Bitterroot Valley began at the age 7 after a full two day journey riding in the back seat of my parents buick. My best friend for the 2 week vacation beside me; my Grandma! We camped, out of that buick; sleeping on the ground in assorted campgrounds the entire time, just so my Dad who was a crazy fly fisherman could fish the river of his dreams ... The Bitterroot! The next summer we were back for another 2 weeks but, with a small upgrade: An F-150 with a topper. That second trip is when I remember sitting on the old Darby bridge, legs dangling off the side, a lovely little tune in my head & prayed and asked God if I could live here some day! July 3, 1989 my blessing had arrived! After a 1,000+ mile journey, with two vehicles, a U-haul truck, my two children, their father, two horses, a dog, 3 cats, the rest of our "worldly possessions" ... AND no jobs, we arrived in Hamilton to live out our new adventure! My sweet daughter, who at that time, was the same age as myself when I first came to the Bitterroot, said these words that I will never forget: "Oh Mother, look at those mountains, they are so beautiful!!"

I now have Grandbabies that were born in the Bitterroot & many changes have come and gone in these past 26 years. But, one thing NEVER changes .... The mountains! They will always be beautiful!!

Scenic, welcoming and cozy

  • 5 of 5

This place is outstanding! I use to live here in the bitterrroot and missed it so much I wanted to come back and see and share there beauty with my husband.

And what can I say about Molly the owner/host, it doesn't get any better than her. The cabin was so cozy and everything you could ask for, for a peaceful and relaxing few days, molly went above and beyond any host/owner I have ever experienced. The warm welcome of her smile, nice little welcome baskets, fresh eggs from her chickens.

In the evening you can sit outside enjoy a nice little bon fire and watch the deer come in and cannot forget the beautiful stars from " the big sky".

Thank you, Molly for being the most gracious host and helping us make memories.

If there is one place of I could do it would be right back here!

The cabin is a great place to relax and get some of that "quality Montana rest". Molly is an excellent host that makes you feel genuinely welcome. Thanks greatly.

Owner's Response: Hey Steve & Rob! Thanks so much for coming and staying at the cabin! It's a good thing you got good rest, because you boys hit it hard everyday. Wish the fishing was better during your visit, but you still caught some very nice fish I will post on the website! Come again, and bring your wives! You were model guests and welcome anytime! So nice meeting and chatting with you both around the campfire. And Tank thanks you also for all the ball tosses! Wore the boy out!

Quiet Location, Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Very quiet location and away from it all. The cabin is very warm and cozy. Molly was excellent and provided great communication prior to our arrival and during our stay. She provided fresh eggs from her farm and we enjoyed her welcome basket. Thank you for a relaxing stay during our recent trip to the Missoula area.

Idyllic setting

  • 3 of 5

Delightful rustic cabin in a tranquil setting. Short walk down a tree lined lane to the Bitterroot River. Shorter walk to the private bathroom. Cabin is "dry", (i.e. no running water) although there is a sink with water in the cabin. Wonderfully eclectic decor. Charming host and friendly dog.

Owner's Response: Thank you Sally for your kind and thoughtful words, and being such a good sport, even after realizing you had skimmed over the full description of the "be it ever so humble" little Cabin in the Wildwood! She is a unique humble abode, not boasting of anything more than she is, a dry cabin with a detached bathroom. Only, private, quiet, cozy and close to the Bitterroot River, being her only claims to fame! Was so nice to meet you, and hope you had a wonderful weekend in spite of the lack of the finer things in life you might find elsewhere. But, then again ... you did catch fish .. So life should be pretty darn good, right?! Thank you for being a part of my very successful 2016 season, I surely appreciate you.

Awesome cabin rest and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to decompress and relax. The cabin and surroundings were even better in person than the website pictures portrayed. The rural setting provided great opportunities to enjoy the river, the woods, and all sorts of wildlife. And with the mountains as a backdrop, the sunsets were spectacular.

The cabin décor was spot on and extremely comfortable, and the grounds were neatly kept. With all that and the personal touches geared to individual guests, it was certainly easy to see how much love and attention the host has put into this property, and making guests feel welcome.

The town of Stevensville is only a 10 minute drive away and provides all sorts of places to shop for antiques, or grab a pizza and enjoy some micro brews.

So if you are looking for a place to kick back and unwind, while still having many of the creature comforts of home, this is the place to stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Lewis for your lovely comments and observations! It makes all the hard work worth every blister and splinter! Glad you got the opportunity to unwind and let the stress flow out during your stay and I should say I feel honored you chose to do that here at my little cabin. You and your four legged friend were the model guests .. You are both welcome anytime! Do please come again when the world starts closing in and you need to run to the woods & river to wet a fly and/or watch the flames dance around the campfire ring ! :-)
