About Nancy L Merkel
Originally from Great Falls, Montana and moved to Billings in 1992 where I currently reside. Life's motto: Life is short and unexpected, experience life and travel while you can before its to late.
Nancy L Merkel purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Nancy L Merkel chose Red Lodge
I love the outdoors and the unique feel that Red Lodge has to offer, it's not like a big city but is close enough to Billings that I can get away from the city without going a long way to get there. I fell in love with the cottage when a business partner and I looked at it for the first time in 2006....and had to have it. It's a great escape to relax, play and have a great time. A number of updates have been done since the cottage was purchased and it has evolved into a cozy get away, unfortunately in 2012 my business partner passed away from cancer so I decided to share the cottage with others so they to can see it's appeal. I enjoy sightseeing, riding my motorcycles, camping, socializing with close friends and relaxing so this is just the place to be.
What makes this Cottage unique
Wildlife is abundant in the area from wild turkeys, birds of many varieties, deer, moose and even bears. The view from the picture window is amazing when the light hits the mountain just right and the warmth and cozy atmosphere the we've created inside and outside the cottage is something that keeps us coming back.

Just about perfect!
I stayed for 3 full days and nights at the cottage on a snowboard vacation to Red Lodge Mountain with my two young sons.
The cottage was a wonderful place to come back to after full, fun and exhausting days of snowboarding nearby. Incredibly well stocked if you’re planning on cooking in with a full kitchen, but minutes off Red Lodge’s main street (Broadway) where you’ll find plenty of great restaurants, bars and shops ... not to mention all of Red Lodge’s great people.
Thanks, Nancy. We’ll be back ... even if we have to shovel 14 inches of snow again!
Thanks for being such great guests, I know there was snow galore and I appreciate you and your boys clearing the walk ways.
You are welcome again anytime in the future.
A fabulous weekend get away!
The cottage was exactly as described. Very well stocked and attention to details given. I particularly liked the earlier check in time since we don’t live very far away. It was snowy when we were there so it was nice to have a warm cozy place to stay. We would definitely choose this cottage again and hope to be able to enjoy the deck and outdoor fireplace next time.
Home away from home
The was our third stay at the 'Escape to the Sun' cottage. Nancy and Al have provided everything a guest could ask for in a cozy cottage experience. We have yet to think of a single thing we needed that was not provided. We were able to meet the owners in person this trip, unfortunately due to a early snow storm that broke several branches on many of the trees and bushes in the lovely shaded yard. Though wet and cold from cleaning up fallen branches, they were both friendly, outgoing and showed an honest desire to provide a comfortable, memorable stay. Thanks again for the great accommodations!
Another great stay in Red Lodge!
Our second stay at "Escape to the Sun" cottage was every bit as pleasant as the first. Thanks for your wonderful attention the detail, Nancy!
Wonderful cottage in Red Lodge
My sister and I came to Red Lodge to visit family, and the "Escape to the Sun" cottage was just what we needed. It is so cute! It had everything we needed and was thoughtfully stocked with anything we might need. The bed was comfortable and we loved the setting--it's an easy walk to downtown and in a nice neighborhood. The cottage is nicely decorated and was the perfect size for our needs. We love coming to Red Lodge and will certainly stay there again. Thank you Nancy.
A cozy spot to relax
Enjoyed our stay in Red Lodge; the Escape to the Sun cottage was indeed cozy! It provided a great base camp for our adventures in the area. The deck and yard was a really nice place to observe wandering wildlife.
