The cabin is a small, primitive, one-room log cabin, equipped with bunk beds that sleep up to two people, a table and chairs. The cabin has a loft, but it is not available for public use, due to safety regulations.
Also inside the cabin is a propane stove with an oven, a wood stove for heat, a shelf and cupboard space, cooking pots, eating utensils, a broom and dust pan, bucket, shovel, axe and cleaning supplies. Foam pads are supplied on the beds.
Outside there is a toilet approximately 40 feet southeast of the cabin. Two propane lights are supplied by a large propane tank outside and firewood is stacked near the outside fence on the porch, however the supply cannot be guaranteed.
Guests must bring their own water. The spring just south of the cabin may have sufficient water for cleaning, but is unreliable. Sleeping bags and blankets are not supplied, and users will also need to bring their own matches, food, toilet paper and garbage bags. Garbage and cleaning services are not provided.
There is a large horse pasture and smaller holding corral that renters may use for an additional $10/night fee, paid to Madison Ranger District, 406-682-4253. Fines may be assessed for failure to pay fee.
The historic log cabin is located along the grassy foothills at the southern end of the Snowcrest Range, at an elevation of 8,100 feet. Together with the nearby Gravelly Range, the area is one of Montana's most popular hunting grounds.
The two mountain ranges are home to nearly 10,000 elk and a growing population of grizzly bears (learn more about bear safety). Moose are also frequent visitors to the meadow where the cabin lies.
