BRIEF DESCRIPTION: This cozy and charming cabin has an amazing location on the historic Flying D Ranch just outside of Bozeman. Guests will enjoy one mile of private access to the Gallatin River - nearly unheard of! There is great wildlife and bird watching from the home. Flying D Fishing Cabin is located on the western edge of this 113,000 acre ranch (175 square miles!) On the ranch is a free ranging bison herd of about 3400 animals, and resident elk herds numbering around 2000.

The master bedroom is set up with two extra long twin beds, which can also be made up together as a king size bed. There is also a queen bed in this bedroom. The second bedroom has two twin beds. And finally, out on the enclosed porch are two Klik Klak sofas that make into twin beds for more flexible sleeping arrangements.

SETTING, ACREAGE, VIEWS: The cabin is located on Flying D Ranch, over 100,000 acres owned by a certain conservation-minded media mogul. The cabin is on the western edge of the ranch amidst some farming land utilized to support the bison herd through winter. A half-mile lane leads across the fields to the Gallatin River - a nice walk or bike ride, or drive for a four-wheel drive vehicle. There are beautiful views to the South of the Spanish Peaks mountains.
ACTIVITIES NEARBY: Besides fishing right out the back door, you can enjoy hiking and mountain biking on nearby trails, horseback riding, golf, skiing, tours of Yellowstone National Park, and everything that the towns of Bozeman and Big Sky have to offer. The cabin is also in a convenient location for skiers looking to explore both Big Sky resort and Bridger Bowl ski area.
CLOSEST TOWN AND AIRPORT: It's about 20 miles to Bozeman or 30 miles to Big Sky. The small town of Gallatin Gateway, which has a few good restaurants, post office and a gas station is just five minutes away. Bozeman's Gallatin Field airport is about 30 minutes from the cabin.
