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.

Amazing!! 🤩

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this cabin do not even come close to doing it justice!! It is a beautiful, clean cabin with views that are downright magical. The hot tub was our favorite! Looking at the mountains, watching wildlife, and watching the sky change all while sitting in the hot tub was so relaxing. John and Jani are the most hospitable couple I have ever encountered. They are always available to help you out with anything, whether it’s getting the fireplace to start or recommending places to go. 😉 They even let us take their 4 wheeler around the ranch during our stay, which was seriously fantastic!! We only had one con, that the main bed was too hard and uncomfortable for us, but besides that, it was my best experience with VRBO yet!

We cannot wait to go back!!!! 😍

Wonderful stay! So relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I were in Hamilton for a wedding. We could not have chosen a better place to stay than Harlan Cabin. Nestled in the hills above the Bitterroot River, we were surrounded by gorgeous mountain views. So quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed coffee on the patio watching cows meander by and magpies and orioles fly by. What a great place to decompress and relax! We totally enjoyed sitting in the hot tub in the evening as deer walked past and the stars came out. John and Jani were wonderful hosts. So friendly and welcoming. The cabin itself is super clean and well appointed! The master bedroom had a comfortable mattress and great views. The views were spectacular through every window! Whether you are coming to relax and enjoy the scenery or hunt/fish I would recommend staying here! We can't wait to return!

Incredible stay!

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.
