Mountain Home in the Crazy Mountains with Vistas and Solitude

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,440 sq ft
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps up to 6)

As the name suggests, SkyArbor Guest House is where the trees reach for sky and the mountains meet the plains. This edge region along the west slope of the Crazy Mountains supports abundant wildlife, and many trees and wildflowers adorn the cabin area.

A constant delight is the breathtaking panorama, with the Crazy Mountains rising up to the east, and the Bridger Mountains sweeping to the west. Sunrise and sunset can be spectacular, casting shadows across the foothills and rosy hues upon the mountains. The Big Belt Mountains are to the north, and looking south from the top of the property are the Beartooth, Absaroka, and Gallatin Mountains.

Living quarters include a large dining/kitchen/gathering area; a study/living area; main floor bedroom and main floor bathroom with shower; a separate sunroom/living area; one large bedroom loft with multiple bed capacity; and one smaller bedroom loft with double bed.

Vistas of weather and horizon steadily change. Deer often feed through, antelope and often elk can be seen at a distance (bring binoculars), sometimes moose, bear and coyote wander through, and birds, squirrels, rabbits, and chipmunks are always scurrying by.

Horseshoes can be played behind the cabin. A campfire area is available for evening enjoyment. Have a picnic at the outside table, or enjoy quiet time or a picnic at the gazebo overlook.

Fishing can be had in alpine lakes or in the nearby Shields and Yellowstone Rivers. Big game and bird hunting are available in national forest lands or block management areas. Yellowstone Park is less than two hours. Shopping, restaurants and galleries can be found in Wilsall, Clyde Park, Livingston, Bozeman, and Big Timber.

Why Paul and Susan Seastrand chose Wilsall

SkyArbor Guest Cabin started out as a retreat and recreational cabin in 1984, and additions to the building and property steadily advanced. Family and friends savor the dramatic views of weather, sky and terrain, as well as the nearby availability of hiking, fishing, hunting, and sightseeing.

In 2003, the Seastrands made room in the calendar to use SkyArbor as a Guest Cabin, and this is advertised through their website--SkyArbor, Vacation Rental by Owner--VRBO, and Visit Montana-.

What makes this cabin unique

Guests often return, and Paul and Susan keep the door open for those who seek comfortable lodging amid serenity and panoramic beauty.

Great mountain cabin

  • 5 of 5

I grew up in Wilsall and come back every year for hunting and usually stay with family and friends. This year I brought my Son and Son-in-law so needed to find a place to stay. I’m so glad we selected this cabin. Paul and Susan were great hosts and supplied us with everything we needed to know about the property. The cabin was very comfortable and had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. We looked forward to coming back and relaxing in the evenings after some long hunts. The views from the property are spectacular. Our only regret was not having more time to spend at the property. We plan on coming back for a summer trip with the wives. We know they will love it.

Owner's Response: Craig, Thank you for your generous comments. It was a delight for us to host your group, and we are glad the amenities and views were a plus for your hunt. The welcome mat is out whenever you might return. Paul and Susan Seastrand

Awesome serenity and beauty as far as the eye can see!!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival we quickly surmised we should have booked more time. After reviewing simple directions and information from Paul (Susan couldn't make it) we settled our belongings and food and sat down to soak up the vistas around us from "the top of the world"! It had been a long drive from Jackson (as well as the trip from Key West) and to know that we could kick back in the cabin where all the staples and necessities we provided. The accommodations where immaculate and it was evident that it was well cared for. We enjoyed making a fire each night, walking around the property which felt like we were in our own national park complete with trails and a variety of birds and animals including Mae and Jake (the resident mule and horse which were Paul & Susan's personal onsite grass managers), and generally remaining in gratitude for this peaceful place. We were also able to have dinner with Paul's sister and husband who own the house below us before we left and will ever think of them as the best of people. We are planning on coming back next year for at least two weeks as we have yet to 'break the surface' of this place, the folks we have met and the surrounding area that goes on for miles...

Owner's Response: When Pat and Chris stepped out of their car after arriving at SkyArbor Guest House, and exclaimed, "Wow, what a magnificent view!" I knew they would enjoy their days to come. They were very interested in the area and its many natural and civic attractions, and they were attentive to all the features to enjoy at SkyArbor--like the campfire, hilltop gazebo, wildlife and walking areas. While eager to share their love of Florida, they were also eager to dive into Montana. We so appreciated their geniality, their appreciation of the cabin's comforts, and their thoughtfulness in leaving the cabin clean and tidy. Pat and Chris were great guests, and we have every confidence that they would be equally appreciated in other rentals.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

When my wife and I arrived, we were met by the owners. We were given a tour of the house and property to familiarize ourselves with the area. The Seastrands answered any questions we had and gave us contact information if we needed anything. They want you to have the best time possible while staying here. They are gracious hosts and stock the house with everything one might need to settle in comfortably. There are numerous grocery stores in Livingston to choose from.

The house is beautiful and the views are unbelievable plus the wildlife loves to pose for pictures. Mae and Jack are a riot when they come over for "snack time". We had an unbelievable vacation here and will definitely be returning.

The solitude and relaxing nature of the area is exactly what we needed. Thank you for everything

Owner's Response: Kevin and Stacy were a delight to have as guests of SkyArbor. They met us with friendliness and attentiveness as we explained the features of the cabin and property and the activities offered in the area. They left a gracious note upon departure as well as a cabin that was thoroughly clean and inviting. They are just the kind of guests that we appreciate and welcome back.

Great Mountain Get-a-way

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at SkyArbor. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We appreciated them meeting us there and showing us around the property. Be prepared for the steep driveway! We enjoyed the breathtaking views (especially from the gazebo) and the wildlife. Also it was fun to feed Mae (donkey) and Jack (horse). The cabin was pretty clean and easily accommodated six girls. Thank you, Paul and Susan, we enjoyed our stay!

Beautiful Montana Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation while staying at SkyArbor. The house was very clean and inviting. The mountain views were breathtaking ! The owners were very inviting and helpful and provided tips on great Trout fishing spots. We caught plenty of fish and enjoyed the serenity of the property. We also enjoyed the company of Jack and Mae (the horse and donkey ). We would definitely recommend this property to our family and friends and hope to go back again in the near future.

Wonderful and idyllic cabin! My brother, two sons, and I had a fantastic time staying here during our annual fishing and hunting trip to Montana. This is a true Montana experience away from the more crowded areas of Montana, but yet close enough to enjoy lunch or dinner in Livingston. I can't say enough about the great hosts, who went out of their way to accommodate my family's schedule and other needs. They take great pride in this cabin and it shows in the care they've taken to maintain it.
