Castle Rock Cabin - Between Bozeman and Big Sky near the Gallatin River
Charming cabin in the trees great for a couple, several fishermen, or a small group.
Blue ribbon trout fishing on the Gallatin River is just a short walk away.
Halfway between Bozeman and Big Sky, and just an hour from Yellowstone National Park.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION: This lovely two bedroom home is well designed with bright and cheery decor and furnishings. It is tucked into a grove of aspen and spruce trees with a large deck for relaxing outside. Blue ribbon trout fishing on the Gallatin River is just a short walk away. The home is about 1300 square feet on two levels.
GENERAL LOCATION: Located in a small grouping of homes on a hillside in the Gallatin Canyon. Route 191, the highway between Bozeman and Big Sky, passes nearby, but there are many trees around the cabin to buffer the sight and sound of traffic.
BEDROOMS AND BATHROOMS: There is one bedroom on the main level of the home with a queen size, log frame bed. Upstairs in the loft is a second sleeping area with a comfortable queen size bed and also a trundle bed, which can be set up as two twin beds. There is one full bath with tub/shower combo in the home which is located on the main level.
KITCHEN: There is a wonderful kitchen, open to the dining and living areas. It has a gas range, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and grinder and all the cookware and serving ware you will need. The home does not have a dishwasher. The dining area has a table, which will seat six comfortably, plus there are a couple of stools at the island counter to encourage chatting with the cook.
LIVING ROOM: The charming living room is the centerpiece of the cabin. There are comfy couches gathered around the gas fired "woodstove" for some evening relaxation. The cabin has a small television with satellite service, VCR and DVD with a small collection of videos which guests are free to enjoy. There is also a nice stereo system with a CD and an iPod dock.
SETTING AND VIEWS: The cabin is in a small grouping of homes in the Gallatin Canyon. There is immediate access to Route 191, which can take you south along the Gallatin River to Big Sky and Yellowstone Park or north along the river to Bozeman. There is fishing access all along the canyon and many great hiking trails to explore as well. The view from the meadow captures the towering Castle Rock Mountain in the Gallatin Range.
OTHER AMENITIES: There is a gas grill available for barbecues and deck furniture for enjoying those outdoors meals. The garage is set up as a recreation room, with a ping pong table, dart board, plus racks for hanging skis, fly rods and other outdoor gear. There is a washer and dryer available at the cabin for guests.
ACTIVITIES NEARBY: Besides fishing on the Gallatin River and a hike up Hell Roaring Creek (both right from the house) you can enjoy hiking, fishing, mountain biking, white-water rafting, horseback riding, tours of Yellowstone National Park through our sister company Greater Yellowstone Guides, and everything that the towns of Bozeman and Big Sky have to offer. For winter guests, excellent alpine skiing at Big Sky Resort is less than half an hour away, as is Nordic skiing and snow shoeing at Lone Mountain Ranch as well as on the many trails in the Gallatin National Forest.
