About Nancy L Merkel

Both of us are originally from Great Falls, Montana but oddly enough didn't know each other at that time, until we met in Billings in 2010 and is where we currently reside.

Nancy L Merkel purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Nancy L Merkel chose Beartooth Mountains

We 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 we can get away from it all without going a long way to get there. We fell in love with the house when we purchased it and have since added to it to make it very enjoyable and relaxing. We enjoy sightseeing, riding our motorcycles, ATV riding and camping 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.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

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!

Wonderful cottage in Red Lodge

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 4 of 5

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.

All the comforts of Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed again last week for a four night getaway at the Escape to the Sun cottage, as we enjoyed

our stay last May. Nancy and Al have provided all the little touches that make a place feel like home.

The well stocked kitchen includes all the dishes and cookware one would need, and the refrigerator

even had a half dozen eggs to get one started. The queen bed was comfy and warm. Even the bathroom

cabinet was stocked with some toiletries should one forget their own. The good size private deck with the

chiminea kept the night chill off while we grilled our dinner. The in town location made it easy to

leave the car at the cottage and walk downtown to the local shops and restaurants. Our visitor's

dog had a nice fenced in yard to roam in as well. We look forward to staying again next year!
