Stay at The Montana Bunkhouse

Rate this Adventure Montana 11510 Beaver Creek Road Moore, MT

Added by Jen Weir

The Montana Bunkhouse is set in an epic location for hiking, wildlife viewing, wildflower picking and extraordinary views of Central Montana.

The Montana Bunkhouse is a great place to unplug and enjoy time with friends and family. This two bedroom bunkhouse rests in the foothills of the Big Snowy mountains on the Olsen family ranch an hour from the nearest town. The building was built in 1905 as a community hall, later converted to a country school and is now a gathering place you can rent for a weekend getaway. 

The Bunkhouse is equipped with running water, 3/4 bath, full kitchen, living room, dining room and game room. The building is surrounded by a large yard area, mature trees, boasts a fire ring, picnic table and horse shoe pits.

Aside from entertainment at the bunkhouse, there are a ton of hiking options with views you won't soon forget. In the spring and summer wildflowers can be found everywhere and the fall foliage will take your breath away. Wildlife is also abundant, it's not unusual to see deer, pheasants and turkeys wander into the yard. 

The hike featured in the photos was a 2-mile jaunt up to the Sheep Herders Monuments with a view down into the Beaver Creek Drainage. Many other hikes and views are available around the ranch.

If you're up for a little driving, Spring Creek in Lewistown offers some pretty fantastic fishing, especially if you're a fly fisherman. Crystal Lake is a short commute with more hiking and fishing options.

After a day of adventuring, you can return to the bunkhouse to grill some steaks, roast some mallows around the fire and kick back with a cold one.
