The Lion Head cabin is located in the heart of Montana’s prime elk and deer country and provides easy access to the pristine blue-ribbon waters of the scenic Boulder River near Natural Bridge Falls State Park. This property is bordered to the south and east by the Gallatin National Forest providing easy walking access to the scenic Boulder River that flows through the spectacular Natural Bridge canyon and continues on for miles in both directions. To the north and west, a large working ranch preserves the open landscape, providing for a private setting, without a house in sight.
The Boulder River Valley near McLeod, MT offers opportunities for fishing in mountain streams, camping, hiking, hunting and horseback riding. The nearby Green Mountain trail head with terrain that changes from grassland to heavy timber where deer, elk and bear may be seen along the way that leads to saddle that straddles the East Boulder and Main Boulder Valleys with views into both river-fed corridors. The Main Boulder Road winds its way south along the river to Box Canyon. A short distance beyond Box Canyon is the ghost town of Independence, easily accessed by foot or ATV. The remains of cabins the gold seekers built can be seen nestled in a breathtaking mountain valley.
The cabin is nestled on a gently sloping bench against the Absaroka-Beartooth mountains in a sweeping and rugged 28-acre landscape, bestowing spectacular views of the Boulder River Valley in every direction. Bountiful wildlife (big and small) frequent the property all year long. Sunrises and sunsets cast multicolored shadows against spectacular rock outcroppings and green pine forests while the mighty peaks of the Absaroka Beartooth wilderness lead the way toward Yellowstone National Park.
Built in 1961, the Lion Head Cabin is still full of the vintage charm from this era. Approximately 1,300 square feet provides for two-bedrooms, one full bath, a galley kitchen, a living room with a wood burning fireplace and separate library area, a dining area and a large deck. Amenities include a metal roof, fiberoptic internet service, telephone, electricity and wall mounted Convection heaters. Steps away from the front door is a storage shed for recreational gear and cozy fire pit for cookouts and gatherings of family and friends.
The large rock outcropping on Mount Baker above the cabin, known locally as the “Lion Head” gives the cabin its distinctive name.
From the Lion Head Cabin the town of Big Timber is +/- 26 miles, Livingston is +/- 36 miles (via Swingley Road) and Bozeman MT is 107 miles.
