My little family of 3, 2 people and 1 dog, spent 2 weeks in the Vintage Cabin at Big Trout last month. What a gorgeous spot in Montana! Our (tiny) cabin had most of the comforts of home and is decorated with taste and care. We could stroll to the stream just yards away, sit on the porch and watch deer, wild fowl, even a mink go about their business...our hosts allowed us to fish on their property and even lent us the fishing gear (no catches other than a bit of grass, but what fun!). John and Cynthia Osborne are delightful hosts and very attentive to our needs, fresh towels, ice, even trout that John caught and shared with us...
I also enjoyed visiting La Cense Montana, an 80,000 acre working ranch in Dillon that has created a unique Natural Horsemanship program - I watched several classes being held in a huge indoor arena.
Local attractions are the fantastic parks and hiking trails, Twin Bridges airshow (over 50 vintage private planes PLUS Frank Borman), Virginia City, and of course, the Big Hole Valley which is worth the trip all by itself.
Cool nights, gorgeous landscapes everywhere, and really friendly people wherever we went.
The Osbornes have 2 other rentals - much bigger - for families or friends who want to have a fly fishing vacation, or just hike & ride.
