About the property

2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath in Fort Smith, Montana, near the Bighorn River

The Bighorn Castaway Vacation Rental ~ Bighorn River

Fort Smith, Montana ~ 90 minutes south of Billings

This renovated two-bedroom mobile home has all the amenities of your own personal vacation home near the river. It is located on the edge of the fishing village of Fort Smith, Montana -- a quarter-mile from the Bighorn River and some of the best tail-water trout fishing in the world.

The Castaway offers these amenities: two bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, kitchen, central air conditioning, BBQ grill, laundry, satellite TV, WiFi, telephone, covered storage for fishing/hunting gear, and a corner lot with a serene meadow view and spectacular star-gazing.

Two Bedrooms:

Bedroom One with queen bed, adjacent to the main bathroom

Bedroom Two with full bed and en-suite half-bath

Queen sleeper couch in living room

The view from the yard is mountain meadow, backed by foothills and the red rocks of Bighorn Canyon. The location is easy walking distance (about 3 blocks) to three fly shops, the coffee shop, the market and the post office. The Afterbay boat launch of the Bighorn River is a quarter-mile away from our door, and Yellowtail Dam is a 5-minute drive. The scenic gorge of Bighorn Lake (500 feet deep in some places) are 10 miles up the mountain.

The Castaway is non-smoking, although guests are welcome to smoke outside.

Respectful pets are welcome at an additional charge
