About Ruth Herbert
My father built this home and we (his four kids) have kept it in the family since his passing. My brother lives next door, 1/4 mile down the dirt driveway. He is a true outdoorsman and knows the country like the back of his hand. We love the Bitterroot and are happy we can share its uniqueness and our home with others who enjoy being away from it all. Because of its pristine nature we have a land trust to protect if from development 'in perpetuity'
What makes this House unique
Coffee on the deck in the morning often means seeing the local elk herd or watching the wild turkeys pop up from the brush. Moose and an occasional black bear sometimes wander up as well. The house is rustic but very comfortable and a great place for family gatherings or to return after a day of outdoor recreation.

Peace and Quiet
What an awesome cabin! We loved the cool design and craftsmanship of the home. Just sitting in the front yard, we saw a black bear and about a dozen elk. The house was clean and remote. No wifi was awesome. Great access to National Forest, all within 15 minutes. Gorgeous forest with creek nearby.
Glad you liked it! I haven't seen a bear for years up there, lucky you! Hope you return one day.
Quiet, with everything you need
A cabin in the woods with a deck, a grill, two comfortable bedrooms, at the south end of the beautiful Bitterroot Valley. The only sounds are your sighs of pleasure. The cabin is at the end of a rough and long driveway, and while the host says Prius has driven it Ok I'd be cautious with a very low clearance car. Other than that caution, this has everything.
Everything was perfect.
So beautiful! Vacation home was so nice and clean.
It had everything we needed and more.
We will be going back again.
This cabin is secluded in the middle of a beautiful forest and is absolutely wonderful.
The cabin is located about a quarter of a mile off the West Fork Highway. It is conveniently located to fishing access and many trailheads. There is an excellent restaurant just up the road and it is a short drive into Darby. The views from the cabin are strictly of the forest, no other cabins are visible. The cabin itself is very comfortable and equipped with everything you need (including a coffee bean grinder which really came in handy). Wildlife abounds. One of our favorite activities was having morning coffee on the back deck and watching elk (not twenty yards away), moving downhill towards the river. We have been renting Forest Service and private cabins for over twenty years and this cabin was one of the most comfortable and enjoyable that we have stayed in. We definitely plan on returning next year.
Just under Trapper peak, next to national forest with extensive hiking, mountain biking and FLYFISHING the Bitterroot and West Fork of Bitterroot rivers. Painted Rocks reservoir is a few miles away. One hour drive to Salmon River for rafting the day stretch. Big Hole Country and Lost Trail pass about an hour drive.
