About John and Jani Meuchel

The Bitterroot Valley has been our home forever. We take great pride in this property and participated in the construction from the beginning.

John and Jani Meuchel purchased this cabin in 2001

Why John and Jani Meuchel chose Hamilton

The cabin was built on my childhood family ranch with lots of memories of cattle ranching and beautiful horseback riding.

What makes this cabin unique

The view of the mountains to the West is breathtaking from the hot tub and there is nothing like watching the sun go down from the swing on the front porch.

Incredible stay!

  • 5 of 5

I loved everything about this place. Jani and john were so helpful.

Visited in January and lucked out with beautiful weather. The cabin, the hot tub and the surrounding view are amazing. Hiking lake como and horseback riding were added highlights! 5 stars for a great long weekend.

Perfect Escape!

  • 5 of 5

We love this place. The view is absolutely amazing. I could spend my entire vacation sitting on the back porch admiring the view and the abundant wildlife. I looked forward to the almost daily visits from the Mule Deer. The sunsets are also spectacular. You don't want to miss star gazing from the large hot tub. The cabin itself is very clean and well stocked. John is fantastic to work with, and makes his guests feel very welcome. If you want to keep in touch with the outside world, you will be happy to know, that it has excellent cell phone and internet coverage. As comfortable as the cabin is you could stay inside all day, but then you would miss the opportunity to enjoy the numerous hiking trails in the area. We really enjoyed hiking the Lake Como Trail and the Blodgett cannon trail. This is truly a hidden gem. If you want to escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life, this is the place to relax and get away from it all.

Thank you John and Jani for sharing your wonderful cabin with us.

Private, Clean, Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely enjoyed our stay. The description of this cabin doesn't do it justice (that might be part of keeping it secret). Tons of privacy (if you don't mind the cows and wildlife wandering by). Everything was clean. The views from every window are incredible. Loved sitting in the hot tub and watching the sun rise or set on the surrounding mountains. Can't wait for our next chance to return.

This is it!!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin and the beauty around it is more than my husband or I EVER imagined!! We stayed for 3 nights and each day the weather and the beauty changed. The cabin is just perfect!! John came over one evening because we are idiots and don't know how to work the tv...even with detailed instructions written out for you. He recommended some places nearby to see and told us some history of some of the area. Would HIGHLY recommend this cabin to anyone. The pictures don't begin to show its beauty . Thank you John and Jani for sharing part of your piece of heaven on earth!!
