Current Photos

Thank you to the Davis Family of Roswell, GA, for sending us this gorgeous photo they took of a rainbow as seen from the cabin in early July. 

The Davis Family wrote, "We had a great time.  A big storm came up one evening (picture of rainbow attached) that created the most beautiful lighting conditions.  We saw deer every morning at the cabin and lots of other critters in Yellowstone National Park.  Your cabin is lovely and we do appreciate the chance to stay there!

Attention Wolf Watchers: 
Howling Fun!
Montana Rocky Top Cabin is located just 30 minutes from Lamar Valley, the home of Yellowstone's largest elk herd, bison herds, and wolf packs -- descendants of the famed reintroduced wolves.  This makes it the perfect destination for wolf watchers and all wildlife enthusiasts! 
To get you in the spirit of wolf watching, we took this amateur video at the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center in West Yellowstone, on Montana, April 19, 2008 (located an easy drive through the Park from our cabin).

 Wildlife Sightings Reported at the Cabin

The Montana Rocky Top Cabin sits at 8,600 feet at Colter Pass.  The property shares a boundary with the Gallatin National Forest; therefore, wildlife sightings are daily.  Occasionally, something spectacular happens by.  We have been provided with long lists of animals spotted from the cabin but here are just a couple highlights from '08-'09!  We provide a spotting scope at the dining room window for these wonderful moments!

May 2008: The Dixons from the UK reported seeing three wolves on the bluff from the breakfast window one morning while having breakfast!  This is a first wolf sighting at the cabin.  The Dixons have been visiting Montana for 19 years and made a credible identification.

October 2008:  We saw an extended family of deer move through the property from our dining room window after an early season snowstorm. They were easier to see against the new white snow.  Later, one morning as the snow was nearly melted, we found black bear prints in the wildflower garden... likely from a nighttime visit.  The mountain fox visited our neighbors daily...(from owners Diane and Gary.) 

June/July 2009:  Guests are reporting mule deer at the cabin nearly every week if not daily.
