About the property

This beautiful family cabin, recently built in 2014, offers a modern/rustic stay in the Pioneer Mountains in southwest Montana. The cabin is situated 35 minutes west of Dillon and 30 minutes east of the Big Hole Valley, and is located on the Pioneer Mountain Scenic Byway. The home sits on a mountain overlooking the Grasshopper valley and has amazing views of the Pioneer Mountains and Maverick Mountain, a great ski hill for the whole family. Within 5 minutes you can be skiing at Maverick Mountain or soaking at Elkhorn Hot Springs. With public lands only a few hundred feet away there are miles of hiking, biking, horseback riding, cross country skiing and snowmobiling, literally out the back door.

There is much to explore in the area from mountain lakes, Coolidge ghost town, Bannack (Montana's first territorial capital), Big Hole National Battlefield, hunting, fishing (the Beaverhead river, Wise river and Big Hole river are all within 45 minutes), boating, waterskiing at Clark Canyon Reservoir, Crystal Park, plenty of scenery and wildlife, and many more activities for the whole family.

Dillon offers shopping, groceries, coffee shops, restaurants, movie theatre, Western Montana College, Patagonia Outlet store, and many other shops to fulfill your needs.

The cabin was constructed of hand hewn logs and circular sawn floors which offer rustic details that make this place a great cabin getaway. The cabin offers electric heat, a propane fireplace on the main floor and a wood fireplace in the walkout basement. There is a loft upstairs which holds a king size bed and two twin beds, and three windows. On the main floor there is the main entrance, a guest room with a queen bed and three windows, a bathroom with a claw foot tub and a window looking out to the Pioneers, a living room area with large panoramic windows, a leather couch, television and a walkout covered deck with seating looking over the property, and towards Maverick Mountain ski area. The kitchen has a dining table, stainless steel appliances and many of the common small appliances, cooking utensils, and dishwares a person may need. In the walkout basement there is another entrance into a social area to hang your snowy clothes by the fire. The basement also holds a guest room with a full size bed and a large window, a bathroom with a shower/bath, a futon and a washer/dryer. The cabin is surrounded by mature trees, and is easily accessed by a common road that is maintained year round.

The Grasshopper Valley offers two bar/restaurants, the Grasshopper Inn and Elkhorn Lodge and Hot springs. The grill and bar is open at Maverick Mountain during ski season. There is also Ma's country store with basic necessities and the Polaris post office.

Ideal ski get away

  • 5 of 5

Sarah & Dave were gracious & thoughtful hosts! An idyllic cozy cabin, just a stone's throw away from Maverick Mountain Ski area. Comfortably accommodated two families with children. Kitchen was well stocked and every amenity provided you could ask for: games, movies, sleds, pancake griddle, beautiful bathrooms w/ radiant floor heating, internet, washer/dryer, bedside chocolates.... We spend a fantastic weekend skiing the white thunder, soaking at Elkhorn Hotsprings, and sledding on the hill just outside the cabin door. Thank you! What a special place!

Winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

I spent a 3 day weekend with friends in this beautiful hand built cabin, surrounded by the gorgeous Grasshopper Valley. We had an amazing weekend getaway! The inside was spotless and very welcoming, the views all around were captivating, the fire cozy, and the big windows let in the south winter sunshine perfectly. The owners were available and easy to communicate with if we had any needs or questions; A+ for them. We skied cross country out the main door, drove 5 minutes to ski at Maverick, and then only 10 minutes to Elk Horn Hot Springs for a nice relaxing hot water soak. We all left the weekend with hopes to return again some day!

Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving!!

  • 5 of 5

The log home was amazing! Beautifully decorated, loved the old fashioned tub with bath salts even! I was able to cook a full Thanksgiving meal (brought own turkey pan) but other than that it turned out great!! It was so relaxing even snowed a little. Also spent some time at the Elkhorn hot springs and crystal park. Our hosts were super helpful. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you!!
