Beartooth Mountain Range was named after this little point below?)
You really have to search
hard to find the Bears Tooth!
Chris Wendt from
Kansas found this nice Rams Skull while staying at Beartooth Lodge summer of
He graciously donated it to hang in the Lodge!
In 2007 Zig and I purchased our property, a backhoe and a portable
sawmill and we went to work building our cabins. Our dream was to have a
lodge on the river with some guest cabins to house our friends and
family when they come to visit. We are slowly fulfilling our dream and
we are living the life we had hoped for. We are planning to start
building our main lodge next summer. We purchased more land then we
needed and now we have put some of it up for sale.
it out if interested!
What we like about living here is the outdoors, we
both love to fish and you will probably find us out catching our dinner
during your stay! We have
hiking, ATVing, snowmobiling, kayaking, cross country skiing, four
wheeling, mountain biking and the
best hunting in the state
right out our front door! What more could you ask for? We have it and
live it all!
While you are here you will listen to the river run at
night as it puts you to sleep and then in the morning you can sit on the
covered porch with your morning coffee and enjoy an amazing private view
of the Clarks Fork River and the wildlife. It doesn't get any better
than this! Just ask the
Mc Neese's from Iowa,
they come back every year!
We are nestled in a valley surrounded by National
Forest with only the Chief Joseph Scenic Hwy running through it
(Wyoming Hwy 296). Five miles to the north you intersect with the
Beartooth Highway All
American Road, Hwy 212. The
Beartooth Mountains are known as the Fly Fishing Capital of the World
and we are at its doorstep! We have guest that come back every year just
to fish the many lakes and rivers in the Beartooths. While in the
Beartooths a must stop is the
Top of the World
Store, tell them we sent you!
The Clark's Fork of the Yellowstone River borders
our property on the north in front of our cabins and is one of the few
rivers in the US designated as a Wild and Scenic River surrounded by
pristine wilderness areas. Both the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone and
Crandall Creek (on our southeast border) are outstanding blue ribbon
trout fishing streams!
Main Attraction is Yellowstone National Park
We are located just 22
miles from the Silver Gate Entrance of
Yellowstone National Park (also known as the
northeast entrance!) We like this entrance because it is the best access
to our favorite part of Yellowstone and that is the Lamar Valley.
The Lamar River is located in the Lamar Valley and is a tributary of the
Yellowstone River, approximately 40 miles long, in northwestern Wyoming.
The river is located entirely within Yellowstone National Park and is a
popular destination for fly fishermen, and is widely known as one of the
best places in the park to view wildlife, especially buffalo, elk, deer,
grizzly bears and wolves.
Our favorite time of year
to go into Yellowstone National Park is in September. We like taking the
drive through the Lamar Valley to Mammoth Hot Springs. This time of year
the aspen trees are starting to turn a beautiful golden color and the
elk have started into mating season! We enjoy watching the bull elk
bugle and fighting to gain dominance of a herd. It is something to see!
We have people from all
over the world come and stay with us to see Yellowstone and the
Beartooth Mountains, most of them say that a week stay just isnít long
enough, that they wished they would have planned for more days to be
able to see everything there is to see in the area, so donít cut
yourself short! Here are some nice pictures taken of
Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park. You
will see why we love living here and why our guest keep coming back!
from Our Cabins!
If snowmobiling is your thing? Our area
provides the best snowmobiling as supported by SnoWest Magazine, Offering 60
miles of maintained groomed trails. A few of the most talked about
trails are Daisy Pass, Lulu Pass, Henderson Mountain and Round Lake Trail in
Montana taking a rider to elevations of 10,000 ft. exposing a spectacular
panoramic view of the backcountry. Don't forget to snowmobile the Beartooth
Mountain Range--referred to as the Top of the World. This is our favorite
area to run our sleds and you really do feel like your on Top of the World!
All of these area's can be accessed from Beartooth Lodge by your sled!
Zig say's he is getting to old to ride a snow machine
and wants to graduate into a snow coach to be able to take guest to see
Yellowstone Park and the Beartooth Mountains in the winter! Zig in his
younger years would take several trips annually all the way through
Yellowstone Park on sleds and he says they were his favorite memories of the
park. Now what he likes to do is sit at the bottom of Daisy and Lulu Pass
and watch all the young crazy's on their sleds high marking and rolling back
down to the bottom of the mountain!
Other Things to
There are tons of things to do while you are here! Some
people just want to hang around the cabin, relax and read a book. Some

Our Maps we

closest town to us (20 miles) and they have a lot to offer. We go to the
Miners Saloon when we are hungry for Pizza. Check out the

As you can also see we are about the same distance from
Cody, Wyoming as we are from Red Lodge, Montana. We alternate between
the two of them when we need to go to town for supplies! Either way we
go it is a beautiful drive. If you go to Cody, take the Chief Joseph
Scenic through Sunlight Basin and then up over Dead Indian Pass. For
more information on things to do in Cody try the

Another thing to do while you are here is check out Red Lodge, Montana.
It is a beautiful Ski town at the base of the Beartooth Mountains. Our
