About the property

8 Bedroom, 4 bath, sleeps 15 adults in 9 beds, very private w/ mountain views

The 8 bedroom lodge is located 8 miles south of Showdown Ski Area with downhill and cross-country skiing + 300 miles of snowmobile trails. Walk out the door to Elk & mule deer hunting. You can also walk from lodge to a small trout stream or drive a short distance to major streams, rivers, and Newland Creek Reservoir for great rainbow and brown trout fishing. Local fishing guides are available on a neighboring 100,000 acre working cattle ranch with over 30 miles of fishable rivers and streams on the property (names and phone numbers can be provided). Or you can be guided on major nearby rivers like the Smith, Missouri, Yellowstone, Madison, Gallatin, etc. for either 1/2 or full day fishing trips. Three major reservoirs on the Missouri River (including Canyon Ferry Reservoir which is just 90 minutes away) has some of the best walleye fishing in the US plus rainbow and brown trout fishing as well.

The forest around the lodge is also great for 4-wheeling, mountain biking, hiking, and bird/wild game watching if you choose. Star-gazing is also incredible as the lodge is located at 6200 feet above sea level and there is NO light pollution so the stars look like you have never seen before. Just 20 minutes away to the north is Memorial Falls which is only a short hike from the parking lot off HWY 89. A must to do is soak in the mineral hot springs pools in White Sulphur Springs just 1/2 hour away.

The lodge is a great place for family reunions with plenty of space in the main lodge room to spread out. A piano and foosball table are also available or you can choose from the many board games, or pick a book from the large library. There is a large screen satellite TV or pick from over 100 DVD/VHS movies provided for your use plus 2 additional TVs are in the bedrooms. We have also had people use the lodge for a small wedding/wedding reception, 50th wedding anniversary, quilting, scrap-booking, etc. It is a great place to use as a base location for your vacation to tour both Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks which are 2.5 to 3 hours away.

The lodge has 1 king bed in the master bedroom w/private bath, walk-in closet and love seat. In addition there are 5 queen private bedrooms and 3 twin beds that all share 3 bathrooms. The main lodge room has fully stocked gourmet kitchen with 3 dining room tables that seat up to 8 people each, 2 gas grills are available for all your BBQ needs, plus all linens/towels are provided, just bring groceries. Wood burning stove is available for your use with split provided wood in the over-sized double garage. Paper products and many spices are available in the cupboard for your use.

Outside in the back yard is a fire pit that you can build a fire to sit around to enjoy the cool evenings and tell your favorite stories or roast smores for desert. Some outside lawn furniture is also available for your use and enjoyment as well. Grocery delivery from a local store in White Sulphur Springs is also available, just request the phone number.

About David Sinkbeil

Kelly and Dave are Industrial Hygienists and own/operate DS Environmental Consulting, Inc. in Lakewood, Colorado for the past 10 years performing all types of sampling for environmental hazards like asbestos, mold, lead-based paint, radon, etc. They currently have 12 employees and live in Morrison, Colorado. Kelly enjoys quilting, painting and reading in her spare time while Dave enjoys all types of hunting and fishing. We both love to travel and spend most of their vacation time exploring new parts of the world.

David Sinkbeil purchased this house in 2001

Why David Sinkbeil chose Montana

We purchased this property to live in it full time as you can't find property like this any more with hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, hiking, etc. out your door in the middle of 2 million acres of National Forest. You can't imagine how peaceful and quite it is here and you definitely won't want to leave and go back to the hustle and bustle of city life and the traffic and noise, etc. We packed up our clothes and left it for a great job offer in Colorado but said we can't sell it because we would never find another piece of property like it again, so we turned it into a vacation home 14 years ago.

What makes this house unique

We feature 9 total beds with 1 king, 5 queens, and 3 twin beds with extra blow-up beds for kids in 8 private bedrooms with 4 bathrooms. There is a very large common area (the kitchen, living room and dining room are all together) for your group to enjoy all getting together with 3 dining tables and plenty of couches for everyone to relax. You can sit in front of the large picture windows that face south and enjoy the 300 days of sunshine and curl up with a good book. Our guests have used our home for weddings, 50th wedding anniversaries, large family reunions, a base camp for elk and deer hunting and/or trout fishing, hiking/mountain biking, and a home base to travel and explore Yellowstone and Glacier National parks and other great sights in west central Montana. If you like to ski, there is both downhill and cross-country skiing just 10 minutes away or you can enjoy 300 miles of trails for snowmobiling right out the door.

Great accomodations for our large family

  • 5 of 5

Our 3-generation family of 20 stayed for a week in July and were very, very happy with the house and it's amenities. The bedrooms were adequate for our large group, the kitchen was well stocked and the living room & dining rooms were great for spreading out, but still being together. There are lots of games & videos available & the foos ball table was a huge hit! The pictures don't really do the space justice. There were area activities for all ages. We hiked the Memorial Falls Trail, visited the Fire Lookout Tower, enjoyed the Sulphur Springs pools. We did some fishing and enjoyed an afternoon at the reservoir. We did a day trip to Great Falls. The Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center was excellent.

With 7 children under the age of 12, the large yard was perfect for tossing footballs, baseballs, running, and water balloon fights. We used the fire pit often in the evenings.

I also need to comment on how responsive Dave, the owner was to my many questions leading up to our stay. He also checked in with us after we arrived to ensure we had everything we needed and arrived safely.

We highly recommend this property!

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

Anything you could possibly need is in this home. We stayed for 10 days with 7 kids most of the time all of them 13 and under. There was plenty of things for them to do. Between hiking up a hill behind the house to running around the yard, playing board games, and they loved the hockey table. The Kitchen is so well stocked that you can pretty much cook anything you would like... and the pots, pans, baking dishing and utensils are all there. It is one of the very best properties we have ever rented. Plenty of spices I picked up a few just because I wasn't sure but they were already there. The town is 20 miles away which is perfect we did all our shopping there. The little meat department in White Sulphur is great!!! Very clean house and the great thing is you can clean up after yourself too....they provide cleaning tools and supplies....We all really enjoyed our stay. Dave is a very nice man and very easy to talk to. Thanks for everything!! Hope to stay again next year!

Our Mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place is great. We are snowmobilers from Canada and our group of 8 to 10 have been renting the lodge for a week in February for the past eight years. The convenience of being able to access the Kings Hill snowmobile trail system right from the front door makes the place a hit for us, no loading and unloading snowmobiles. The lodge has everything we need. There are lots of bedrooms and bathrooms for our multi family group. The living room is huge with lots of space for everyone to relax. The wood stove feels great after a long day and is excellent to help dry our gear. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is ample seating in the dining area. In 8 years we have never had a complaint. The owner Dave, has always been super great to deal with, and can be contacted easily if any problems do arise during our stay. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Sweet Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This place is so beautiful - mountains, meadows, long gorgeous days and starry, starry nights - this must be what they mean by God's Country! But after spending a day fishing and hiking the Lodge is this amazing place to settle in and relax - it is one of the most comfortable places I have ever stayed when I was away from home - we all were so sad to leave when it was time to go! The beds are super comfy, the furniture lovely and new, the kitchen well-appointed, the great room awesome for games or reading or hanging out. There is Satellite TV (which we didn't need to watch because we were so busy having fun out and about). Even wifi! It was so much better than we had even hoped!! Close by is White Sulphur Springs which has some authentic western night spots and places to eat and very friendly locals. I will come back any chance I get! Thanks to the owners for making a great place for our vacation!
