Montana Rock Creek Cabins
Vacation Cabins in the Rock Creek Valley
A slice of heaven in western Montana! Adjacent to the Sawmill Fishing Access, the blue ribbon Rock Creek, just steps away. Pull on your waders and fish for cutthroats, rainbow, browns and bull trout. Or grab the camera and snap pictures of bighorn sheep grazing in a nearby field or on the lawn of the cabin! Visit family or friends in Missoula, Montana without having to stay in Missoula! Hike the Welcome Creek wilderness area; just a few miles from the cabin. Or just take in the sights and beauty of the mountains and the beautiful Rock Creek Valley.
Comfortably furnished, our cabins Golden Stone and Sawmill, feature fully equipped kitchens, outdoor living areas, comfortable living rooms with gas fireplaces, wireless internet, and satellite television. Tastefully furnished and well equipped, the Montana Rock Creek Cabins “Golden Stone” and “Sawmill” are homes away from home.
Our Golden Stone cabin is available year round. Spend the holidays on the Creek! The kitchen at Golden Stone has an oversized kitchen with lots of dishes, serving ware, and cookware for family events. We are open in the winter for winter fishing on the creek, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing.
In late March, the weather warms and the fishing picks up. April fishing can be terrific – just before the run-off. May warms the winter’s snowfall and the river is swollen. June is salmonfly season, followed by the Golden Stone hatch. July through October bring some of the season’s best fishing. In fall, upland bird hunt for mountain grouse on the Creek or hunt whitetail deer.
The perfect spot for your Rock Creek, Montana adventure! Whatever the season, we welcome you to our Montana Rock Creek Cabins.
