Bighorn Cabin 1

Have breakfast with Bighorn sheep at Rock Creek in beautiful Western Montana!

This Trout Bums 1 1/2 bedroom cabin was built in 2020. With a mix of reclaimed timbers, blue pine, barn board, circle sawn flooring, and earthy finishes, and situated amongst islands of aspen trees, this cabin is a nature lovers dream. Located at the base of the mountain where the Bighorn Sheep give birth every spring, the deck backs up to the mountain and the sheep overlook it. Watch the young ones frolic and play, as the herd grazes in the yard.

We designed a bump-out to the rear, which allowed us to push the bathroom out a bit and gave us room for a sleeping alcove in the area just opposite. Not really a full bedroom, but a private space separate from the main bedroom, the sleeping alcove has a customized built-in twin bed, made from reclaimed timbers and barn wood, enclosed with reclaimed timbers and a curtain that can be drawn for privacy. Pass through the hallway, past the bathroom and the sleeping alcove to the bedroom with a queen bed (also custom built), hand crafted closet– and a ceiling fan just above the bed for those summer nights when you want to move the cool mountain air coming in through the open windows.

The small kitchen has a glass top range, refrigerator, and microwave…and a retro-look. The custom made kitchen may be small, but it’s nicely equipped with just about everything you could need. With beautiful open shelving above, and blue pine cabinets below it’s a stunning space. The bar has seating for 4 and a spacious area for food prep. Additionally, just out the back door on the deck, is a weber grill and seating for 4 at the table.

The living room, just off the kitchen area, has 2 chairs with a shared ottoman, and a large chair that converts to a sleeper – perfect for a second child to sleep on. In the shared kitchen/living room space is a beautiful entertainment center with flat screen TV and satellite TV service.

Notice the reclaimed timbers and barn board accents…all lovingly crafted into new life. The bathroom is a piece of art with a barn door and vanity made from salvaged barn-wood that we found locally. The vanity sink is of hammered copper, and the beam that goes through the middle of the ceiling looks solid, made to look that way by Joe’s gifted hands. All this complements the blue pine walls, and the beautiful view just outside the window that looks at the mountain.

The front porch is inviting, with two chairs and a table in between for a friendly game of checkers, chess or just enjoying a cool beverage while enjoying the view. The big yard to the south will often be filled with Bighorn sheep and their babies because this property butts up to the mountain area where the ewes have their babies every spring.

This cabin is one of two on the property – available to rent together as a perfect option for those who want to stay in close proximity to one another, or individually with plenty of privacy for each.
