Tucked into the woods at the end of the road just 13 minutes from the heart of town, this cabin is a treasure. Cliff built the place himself; each tree sawn on his tractor-powered sawmill. We added family antiques, new mattresses and original art (lotsa comfort and love). The covered porch is high in the trees with breathtaking views 1000 feet above the Yellowstone River. A stellar location, you will be hard-pressed to find a more memorable authentic cabin experience during your Montana travels

The space
Cliff was the stuff of legend; a barrel chested mountain man with a heart of gold and a zen-like deep-souled connection to nature. The cabin has power, running water, bath, shower and a full kitchen. The loft has a king size power adjustable bed and the "Powder Room" has a full size bed. Both beds are topped with hand stitched comforters and cozy linens.

The secluded cabin was built onto the side of a mountain above town. You can watch squirrels scamper on the ground outside the bathroom window yet the living room and porch at the front of the cabin sit high off the ground in the trees. Through the tree tops the view is surrounded by sky with the Yellowstone River below and the Crazy Mountains beyond. Sunrises and sunsets are spectacular from this nest of a home in the trees. The fifty foot porch has a BBQ grill, a dining area and a lounge area complete with a fire pit to cozy around and view an endlessly star-filled "Big Sky Country" sky (especially delightful as we do not have the distraction of light pollution). Nights are considerably cooler up here in the forest 1000 feet above Livingston, a welcome respite during the warmer summer months.

Guest access
Cliff's cabin is in it's own neck of the woods, easy to access and private. You will find plenty of forest and a few trails to explore. The studio zip line is a memorable experience but must only be enjoyed with our supervision. A big horned owl and its mate have been hanging around Cliff’s cabin - you may hear them hoot at night and in the mornings.

Other things to note
Our little dog Tala is often at the studio with me. She takes her job as "greeter" seriously and let's me know when someone drives by. We are open to pets but please let us know in advance.

Location

Livingston, Montana, United States

Even locals are blown away by the unique views and total mountain woodsy experience our property offers just four miles from the heart of downtown. Deer, elk, moose, bears, mountain lions, rabbits, game birds and songbirds are part of our neighborhood. Our mountainside retreat protects us from the infamous "Livingston wind" and offers scenic views of the Bridgers, the Crazies and the Absaroka Mountains. You will see the Yellowstone river gleam at sunrise in the valley below (two fishing accesses are only 10 minutes away). Yellowstone Park is a 45-minute drive up Paradise Valley. Bozeman is just 25 minutes away. Livingston has exceptional dining, wining, bakeries and breweries (we've authored a booklet for you with local suggestions). While the twinkling lights of town can be viewed from many places on our spacious property, Cliff's cabin is tucked into the trees; shady yet plenty of sunlight. Lovely walks and longer hikes are accessible right from your door but of course the river and valley offer limitless adventures. We are outdoor enthusiasts happy to offer advice based on your adventure level and site-seeing preferences.

We live an enchanted life up here beneath the boundless beauty of Montana’s painterly sky. My daily commute to work is a walk through the woods to my studio. I am an artist. Raymond has a Masters in plants and soil science and has spent the better part of two decades healing the earth via reclamation work. But his work took him far from home too much of the time (we saw each other 17 days one year) so he currently spends his days “talking shop” with local ranchers while keeping them in whatever John Deere equipment they need. Raymond can often be found in a dusty rodeo arena, his black cowboy hat gleaming with fresh bull snot as he protects young bull riders. My own outdoor passions are outside the rodeo arena; ice climbing, mountaineering, mountain biking, white water sports to name a few. When we venture outdoors together we tend toward tamer pursuits so that our lovely crazy-smart dog Tala can accompany us (hiking, camping and cross-country skiing). Bhutan has been the focus of our recent travels since I am working on a special project carving for the king. Raymond joined me for a few weeks during my last stint overseas – we have such a BLAST traveling together…! Both of us love Momma Nature. We enjoy people and all things artistic; music, theater, fine art, books, movies, food, wine, whiskey and dessert.
