This is a beautiful hand-built log cabin, purpose-built as a vacation rental. It is built of large cottonwood logs originating from the banks of the Big Hole river 20 miles from Silver Star. The logs are flattened on two sides with a chainsaw, and dove-tail notches are used on the corners to fit the logs in place. This cabin was hand built by the owner, Chip Ashcraft, who is a custom log cabin builder.
The cabin is located 400 feet off the county road nestled in a patch of trees, providing a very peaceful and private setting. The closest neighbors are deer and the occasional moose. It is within 5 minutes walking distance of Silver Star fishing access site on the Jefferson river, just downstream from the famous Big Hole, Beaverhead, and Ruby Rivers. It is about an hour’s drive to the Madison river.
Staying at our cabin allows you to walk to some of the greatest trout fishing in Montana on the Jefferson River. From rainbows to brown trout, the river has several easy access points that are great for wade fishing. We have private fishing (Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, etc.) in a spring creek on the ranch.
There is also ample White-Tail hunting on the property. We take over 30 White-Tail off the property each year, without impacting the population in the slightest. There is also Elk and Mule Deer hunting in the nearby area.
