Thanks for giving a nod to our hard-working maintenance crew. Our lawns are pretty famous around here and we are glad you enjoy them. They have the added benefit of keeping us cooler in summer and providing munchies for lots of critters!

A series of cabins with a variety of configurations. Beautiful grounds and all the desirable amenities including kitchenettes with refrigerators, stoves, microwaves, toasters and silverware. Ideal for extended stays.

Thank you for your review and your return visit. We are so glad you enjoy the slower pace here - and the authentic furnishings and warmth of our original cabins. A slice of real Montana - with wifi and TV for the connected generation. Come...More

The El Western is locally owned and operated, and provides a nice contrast to the homogeneous experience of staying in corporate hotel chains. The El Western's owners have obviously put a lot of love into maintaining the log cabins, which were built in the late...More
