  • Wonderful Stay o the Boulder River


    This cabin and second small building (the "Cubby") was wonderful. Located on the main (middle) fork of the Boulder River in Montana, this property is exactly as advertised. Large to accommodate several people,, private bedrooms in doing so, and even a "guest cabin" called the Cubby with two plus bedrooms to allow for additional privacy for your guests. A few miles from a wonderful state part with ample hiking, and a nice hiking trail a short walk from the property, this cabin is ideally located for an active vacation. We also drove up the road ascending the Boulder River for several miles and had a pretty drive. The accommodations available at the cabin were nice - a very ample DVD collection, many books, and a very sufficient kitchen. We made scratch meals for all of our breakfasts and dinners and wanted for nothing in terms of kitchen implements, pots and pans, and baking needs.Also, this property is "pet friendly" and boy was it for us. Our two dogs loved the location, played in the small stream that runs through the property just outside the back door, and generally loved cavorting in the yard. It even has a large fenced dog run for the "two boys" when we wanted a nice dinner at Chico Hot Springs and decided to leave them at home.All in all a very relaxing and wonderful vacation for me and my family. Deeply appreciate you sharing your wonderful property with us.

  • Beautiful Boulder Valley


    Comfort in the great outdoors. Eleven of us spent a quiet few days enjoying the Boulder River and multiple hikes to waterfalls and caves. The cabin had ample towels, fans, kitchen utensils and coffee! The kids enjoyed the foose ball and sleeping in the Cubby. Pack plenty of mosquito spray and itch cream. Check out the huge Boulder fields by Hells Canyon.

  • Mountain Getaway


    Our stay in this cabin was wonderful. There was a lot more room than we were expecting. It is well furnished and the decor fits perfectly for the mountain setting. We really appreciated the detailed fishing maps and access information that were posted in the living room.

    Thank you Terry for staying with Mountain Home Vacation Rentals. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to have you stay with us again in the future.

  • Exceeded our expectations!


    Wow, what a spectacular cabin that exceeded our expectations! The cabin was much larger than I expected and just beautiful. I only wish we had booked it for more than three days. The kitchen is well stocked and organized and the beds were oh, so comfy. We also used the gas grill on the deck for our steaks, and they were grilled to perfection. Having a (nearly brand new washer and dryer) was also an added bonus, especially after fishing all day. The scenery surrounding the cabin is serene and the mountain spring flowing directly beside the property is very soothing. Thank you Lisa for your excellent communication and directions. To Anne and Jim, we thank you for opening up this beautiful home and hope to return next summer. Many thanks! KPD

  • Beautiful mountain cabin in the woods!


    This is a very peaceful cabin. They thought of everything! The perfect serene getaway. You could hang out in the beautiful cabin all day, play games, read, write, cook fabulous meals, lay in the hammock, curl up on the front porch. Or, you could hike miles through beautiful mountain country out your front door. Or, you could fly fish and swim in the Boulder River. It's great!
