Good location

  • 4 of 5

Being close to Helena but also in a rural setting close to the wild life and the quiet of that area was very nice. Thank you for sharing your home with us. Bill and Susan

I loved this place! Remote cabin, beautiful scenery and had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cabin for a week. It was only 10-15 minutes to Helena. So quiet, remote, yet close to town. We had deer in the yard almost every day and we saw two cow elk in the driveway one day.

The inside of the cabin was clean and had all the amenities we needed. The cabin was full of interesting and intriguing art pieces. I loved sitting on the deck drinking my coffee in the morning and taking in the peaceful surroundings. We had a fire every night and stayed warm. There is another living room downstairs and plenty of room for family. I will definately stay here again when we return to Helena for another visit. So happy I found this place!

Enjoying Fall on Wapiti Lane

  • 5 of 5

Our week in Montana was absolutely perfect. The scenery , accommodations, nature and solitude made the trip relaxing and fulfilling. We relaxed with sunshine during the day and watch sparkling stars at night. The cabin was comfortable with all of the necessaries. Beds were cozy and everything thing was clean. We had lots of room for everyone to relax. We learned how to talk with each other without a noisy tv bugging us. We were able to love life with nature. We can hardly wait to reserve the cabin again for our third time. The location of the cabin is only 10 minutes from Helena... and easy to find. We loved our experience.

Quiet and comfy location only 20 minutes from downtown Helena.

  • 5 of 5

Wasn't hard to find the cabin. Only 3 miles off Interstate 15 with an awesome view. Closest neighbors were 1/4 mile away. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. No TV for a week was refreshing. The Wi Fi hook up worked like a champ so we could remain connected when we wanted. Located half way between Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park (3 hours each direction), we made day trips to both parks and had a wonderful time.

The cabin is spacious with queen bed and full bath on main floor and two bedrooms with 3/4 bath downstairs. Those bedrooms have 2 double beds and two single beds. Washer and dryer downstairs. Also a day bed in living room on main floor. Everything was clean and nicely organized. Highly recommended if you are looking to stay in the Helena area.
