There are two cabins that can sleep up to 24 people that surround a private stocked pond and plenty of ground suitable for camping, fishing, hiking and sitting by the camp fire in the summer while snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and ice skating in the winter. The property is a short 50 minute drive to Helena Regional Airport and only 40 minutes to the quaint Downtown Helena. One and a half centuries ago, Helena became the "Queen City of the Rockies" with the boom brought on by the 1864 gold strike. Helena grew along Last Chance Gulch and in 1875 became the Montana territorial capital. Today the state capital’s grand architecture, numerous museums and historic sites offer a real glimpse into the rich and deep history of the city. Helena also boasts a vibrant cultural center with a busy event calendar, eclectic shopping, art galleries, terrific local bands, great restaurants, local microbreweries, and an epic trail system.
