About John Mahn

We live in Red Wing, Minnesota. Been going to the Wise River Valley for 13 years. We both grew up in Minnesota. We have five children and three grandchildren.

John Mahn purchased this house in 2011

Why John Mahn chose Deer Lodge County

We absolutely love this area and all it has to offer. We especially enjoy the big game hunting, fishing and rafting along with the incredible friendliness of the year around residents. Every time we come to stay we have a hard time leaving!!

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this ranch house because of the incredible views of the Pintler Mountains along with the fish trap creek which flows with 20 yards from the side of this home. This portion of the river is the spawning area for the fluvial Artic grayling

Montana comfort

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful "cabin" is remote and has all the comforts of home plus access to wildlife and beautiful vistas. There is a lot to do -- or nothing to do -- whatever your preference. As the WELCOME chalkboard inside said, "Just breathe."

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have rented this house for the past 3-4 years for a 10+ day fishing trip on the Big Hole River. We take our children and make it a family vacation. It is located on a large cattle ranch with beautiful views of green pasture and Pioneer Mountains. Elk, deer and antelope can be seen in the pasture. It is across the street from the Fish Trap boat access on the upper Big Hole. The house is very clean with all amenities. Greg, the ranch foreman, is very accommodating and helpful. We plan to come back every year.

Great Getaway Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Got together with a bunch of friends at Fish Trap for two days of fishing on the Big Hole. The owners and ranch-hand were both incredibly helpful. The property had some amazing views and the inside of the home was very clean, had plenty of room, and had all the amenities we could ask for. A great weekend overall and hopefully not too long until we return back for another visit.
