Holiday Rental House
If you're looking for the wilds of Montana and yet a bit of luxury, you have found it. River Island House is nestled on a secluded island, just a few feet from the West Fork of the Stillwater River, at the foot of the rugged Beartooth Mountains. You'll enjoy all of the amenities of the most discriminating taste, with the relaxed comforts of a beautiful 2-story mountain home. Sit by a warm fire in the evening or on one of the decks or the stone patio, just a few feet from a wild river with all-native Blue Ribbon trout fishing. Enjoy a dip in the hot tub or just kick back and relax. Just off the front lawn and nestled next to the woods, gather around the firepit for a relaxing experience. Nearby, you can enjoy hiking, guided river trout fishing, river rafting, guided hiking trips, ...If you're looking for the wilds of Montana and yet a bit of luxury, you have found it.

Nearby, you can enjoy hiking, guided river trout fishing, river rafting, guided hiking trips, horse-back riding, 4-wheeling, and more. From here in Nye, it's about an hour drive to the town of Red Lodge, an old mountain town with lots of shops & restaurants. From Red Lodge, you can take Hwy. 212 up to the breathtaking beauty of the Beartooth Highway, a National Scenic Byways All-American Road (to elevations of 11,000' with quaint mountain towns along the way), which leads to Yellowstone National Park. Or, for a tamer trip to Yellowstone, drive approx. 2 hours to Livingston and then south to the charming town of Gardiner, 1 mile from the famed Roosevelt Arch, at the North entrance to Yellowstone National Park (where you will often be greeted by herds of bison) with easy access to Yellowstone's upper loop. There is SO much more to do here in Stillwater County in south-central Montana! We hope you'll come and join us! Note: Montana nights range from cool to chilly to downright cold. We recommend bringing warm clothing and/or jackets or coats. Also note: The cabin is directly on the waterfront, and this mountain river can be loud as it rushes by. Most people find it soothing, but...If you think the noise might keep you awake, we suggest bringing earplugs. More

The cabin has large bedrooms and a great kitchen. The river is right out back with two nice decks overlooking it. You can't see another house from the cabin, which is great when you are looking to get away. There is a lot of great scenery to take in through hikes or drives in the area. We really enjoyed our stay and the kids are already planning their trip back!

Continue on 419 for about 20 miles to Stillwater River Road (across from Carter's Camp) and turn right. About a half mile down, turn left on Limestone Road. A little over 2-1/2 miles down, turn left into the driveway for 265 Limestone Rd. Stay to the left and follow the long driveway down about 1/3 mile and across the little bridge, and you're there!
