Overview

Photos and Description of the Darby vacation cabin rental

Main cabin: 2/2. Private Guest cabin 1/1, Bunk house 2/1

Relax in this serene 5+ acre setting while Elk, Deer, and Moose wander through the Ponderosa Pines. Enjoy the stunning drive following the winding West Fork river, coming upon the breathtaking Painted Rocks Lake, and a little further to mile marker 26. 7 miles further along the road is the Idaho boarder. The drive alone is breathtaking.

March through November you'll see fly fishermen along the West Fork River and the many creeks that flow that flow into the river trying to coax five different species of trout

Summer nights are frequently in the mid 40's with days in the dry 70's at this elevation of 4,800. The road is well kept in winter, allowing easy driving access to Lost Trail Ski Resort on the MT/ID border where you'll discover great skiing and snowboarding. It's locally owned, so come prepared with equipment or stop in Hamilton and get stocked up at Bob Ward's Outdoor store that carries everything for the year round avid outdoors sports person.

Our favorite activities are fly fishing the West Fork River and Overwich Creek, hiking, and riding ATV's. There is nearly 3,000 miles of Forest Service trails plus the 101mi Magruder Road Corridor which separates the 1.1mm acre Bitterroot-Selway Wilderness from the 2.3mm acre Frank Church River - River of No Return Wilderness.

Or, simply enjoy the front porch swing and read a good book. Afternoon naps are wonderful, especially with the refreshing mountain air, snuggled under a wonderful down comforter. There's also plenty of sightseeing to do from Glacier National Park to historic battle sights, and Hamilton's famous Farmers Market on Saturday mornings.
