Montana Cabins

Booking a stay in one of the many Montana cabins is a great way to stay close to nature during your Montana vacation. There are cabins in Montana in all the right spots, not that there's many wrong spots in a state this beautiful. These cabins range from simple, rustic abodes to upscale, amenity-filled offerings, so finding the right one to suit your tastes and preferences is easy. Regardless of what you have planned during your trip, staying in one of the Montana cabins can be a great way to add some extra flare to your vacation.

When looking for cabins in Montana, you can find them in virtually every corner of the state. The western part of Montana is where most visitors head, as that's where you'll find the Rocky Mountains, not to mention all the best resorts. Some of the cabins in Montana stand alone, while others are found in cabin communities that usually pertain to a hotel or lodge. Obviously, the cabins that are part of a community offer less in the way of seclusion, but they're still more private than most hotel rooms. In addition to offering more privacy than your standard hotel rooms, the various Montana cabins are also priced to please. You'll hardly pay more to rent an average cabin here than you will to stay in a hotel room, and for many, there's no question which is better. More often than not, a cabin rental will also provide you with more space to work with, which is always a good thing.

Some of the top places to find attractive Montana cabin rentals include the Paradise Valley and the Bitterroot National Forest. In the Paradise Valley, those who wish to be close to the Chico Hot Springs can always stay at one of the cabins that the Chico Hot Springs Resort and Day Spa offers. As is the case at many lodging establishments that offer cabin rentals, the Chico Hot Springs Resort offers cabins that differ in size and amenities. If you're looking for rustic log cabins in Montana, there's a few of those available, and if you want more in the way of perks, there are options there as well. Some of the cabins here have spa tubs, CD players, vaulted pine ceilings, and private decks, so they are quite akin to small houses when it all comes down to it. If you prefer to rent a cabin in Paradise Valley that is not part of a lodge or hotel, you can go that route as well. One of the larger cabins in the Paradise Valley area has two bedrooms with king and queen-sized beds, not to mention a full kitchen, a sleeper sofa, and satellite TV, so you won't be roughing it. Some of the Montana cabin rentals are so nice, you might not ever want to leave.

The Paradise Valley is a great place to book Montana cabin rentals partly because it is so close to Yellowstone National Park and the Bridger Bowl Ski Area. You're also not far from the cities of Bozeman and Billings if you want to spend some time enjoying urban attractions for a bit. As for the Bitterroot National Forest, it can be found in the southwestern part of the state near Missoula. As is true in the entire western part of the state, the outdoor recreational opportunities in the Bitterroot National Forest are plentiful. Fishing, wildlife viewing, and white water rafting are just some of the things that you can do during the warmer months, and in the winter, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling are among the favorite things to do. The cabins in the Bitterroot National Forest are more rustic than the upscale Montana cabin rentals, and you might be surprised at how cheap they are. You can rent cabins in the Bitterroot National Forest year round, but you might want to bring a 4x4 vehicle if you plan on coming in the winter. Among the more interesting cabins in this forest are the lookout cabins, which are perched on stilts overlooking the beautiful Bitterroot Valley. While most of the cabins in the Bitterroot National Forest are rustic and simple, there are some that are better suited for those who like their creature comforts.

Recommending all of the good places to find attractive Montana cabin rentals would take a while, so suffice it to say that there will be rental cabins close by pretty much wherever you go. In Big Sky, you can pass on the hotel rooms for the chance to stay in a nice cabin, and you can do the same at the nearby Moonlight Basin Ski Resort. Head further north towards Bigfork, Kalispell, and Whitefish, and more cabins are to be found. Getting the chance to go fishing, boating, or kayaking on Flathead Lake is just one of the reasons why staying in a cabin near these towns is so rewarding. Wherever you go to find cabins in Montana, just remember that the rustic and simple ones might lack electricity, private bathrooms, and running water. While this is fine for some, others might not appreciate the lack of basic amenities. It's up to you if you want amenities or prefer roughing it, and whatever you decide, there are Montana cabin rentals to meet your needs.
