Perfection as with Beauty is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

It is our pleasure to invite you to our Homestead.  It has been a cherished member of our family since 1922.

For us it has been a place to escape the cities, relax, unwind and get back to nature.

Our goal is to eventually provide Five Tipi's for guest so that we can keep the atmosphere as natural and relaxing as possible.  With fewer guests there is more opportunity for secluded enjoyment of our natural surroundings.

Please view the various pages of this site where you will learn about our Homestead and find many wonderful adventures waiting for you in the Helena National Forest and the Gates of the Mountains Wilderness Area located in the North Big Belts Mountain Area

For ease of searching open dates: as of this morning 04/19/2016 reservations are available August 1 through November 30, 2016.  I will update this note periodically.

Our open season is from May 1 through November 30.  The system will not take reservations outside of those dates.

AFTER you have made your reservation, within 24 hours, you will receive an invoice through email for the reservation plus Montana Lodging Tax of 7% (this applies to lodging only).  You will be able to pay through Paypal with your paypal account or credit card. The minimum deposit of 25% is due with this invoice.  All payment information is maintained by Paypal.  Your private payment information is not disclosed to us.  Please keep this invoice as you can make your final payment using this invoice until paid in full.  Or you can pay the remainder in cash when you arrive.

If you do not have an email an invoice will be mailed to you.

A deposit of 25% of the total fee is due to hold your reservation.  The remainder must be paid two weeks prior to your reservation if paying by check, or you can pay in cash when you arrive for your reservation.  Please communicate you preference for final payment when paying you 25% deposit. This deposit is refundable if you cancel your reservation 90 days or more before your check-in date.

Such beauty is too perfect to have come about by mere chance
