About Betty & Ben Ricciardi

My husband first visited the Bitterroot Valley in the early 1970's. He fell love with the area and brought me here in 1990. We both fell in love and moved out in 1995. We owned 18 log cabin in Maine that were over 100 years old. Hospitality is second nature to us. We enjoy sharing the beautiful surroundings that we enjoy so much. We live onsite in a distant cabin and are available if needed.

Betty & Ben Ricciardi purchased this cabin in 1995

Why Betty & Ben Ricciardi chose Darby

The location is amazing. Wildlife is abundant, great access to fishing and rafting at your fingertips. Painted Rocks Lake is only minutes away. ATV trails, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding. The West Fork of the Bitterroot River is one of the finest fishing places in Montana. Located 25 miles from the Idaho border for early hunting season.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time. Beautiful cabin next to the Bitterroot river I loved sitting on the patio watching the little squirrels in the trees and our dogs playing in the huge yard so relaxing and you couldn't ask for a better view of the mountains. Betty and Ben are the perfect host. You have complete privacy but they are available whenever needed. We are definitely looking forward to going back soon.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent four days/nights at the Ricciardi's cabin alongside the Bitter Root River and had a wonderful stay. The house was clean and comfortable inside, and the fully stocked kitchen allowed us to easily cook our own meals. Whether outside, sitting on the wrap-around porch, or inside the house, the sound and sight of the river were ever-present, and a variety of day hikes were a short drive away. Betty was both respectful of our privacy and friendly, helpful, and available when we had questions. We felt lucky to have found this cabin for our vacation time in Montana.

We had a great 2 night stay at this lovely cabin right on the West Fork. Betty was very helpful in getting us settled and was kind to let us have our 12 year old lab stay with us. We look forward to a return visit sometime soon.

Nature with all the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfully relaxing stay at the Ricciardi's cabin home. Perfect hosts! Beautifully maintained home and the lawn was like a golf course! We saw elk, trout, and all sorts of birds. This is located off the beaten path, but close to restaurants if needed. We chose to grill out on the wrap around deck. Morning coffee was perfect out on the deck! We will be back!

Terrific place! Beautiful riverfront.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week here and hope to return. Cabin and beds very comfortable. Beautiful setting. Good fishing. Many points of river access for wading, but the spots in front of the cabin were great. Multiple hiking options. Saw Golden Eagle, several elk and deer, Mountain sheep, and enjoyed the hummingbirds feeding at the cabin.

Hosts, Betty and Ben, couldn't have been nicer. They live on the property but respect your space. They gave us some fish which we enjoyed for dinner one evening. My wife and Betty enjoyed some hikes and bike rides together with other neighbors.

No cell service was a nice break for us. WiFi signal weak but adequate.! Had a wonderful, relaxing stay.

PS: Bo, a playful Border Collie, was an additional treat.
